Gift Guide for Him

November 13, 2020 (updated April 4, 2024) — Written by

Okay is it fair to say we all need a good Men’s Gift Guide?! I know I do. Why are men so hard to buy for??? IDK, but they are. Regardless, this year, more than ever, I’m looking forward to gifting in person again and being able to take in that look on their face when you know you picked out the perfect gift. I can’t wait.

My weakness however? Leaving stocking stuffers to the last min. It’s not unusual to see me during the 11th hour running 100% flapped to Target like, I GOTTA GET THE BREAD AND MILK!  But I don’t feel that bad about it because there have been years my stocking went unfilled (because I didn’t fill it myself), so I’m willing to take the high road here and call stockings what they are for most of us: an afterthought.

zambeezi lip balm variety pack

Not this year though! Check out our section for Gifts Under $30 for Him, which is loaded with stocking stuffer ideas like Zambeezi’s Organic Fair-Trade Lip Balm Variety Pack. We all know dry lips are the absolute worst (to have AND to look at, lol).

Need I say more? These lip balms are USDA Certified 👏 and made with: organic coconut oil, organic sunflower oil, organic beeswax, organic jojoba oil, lanolin, organic mongongo oil and organic essential oils. Grab the variety pack which comes in six flavors, including a lip-protecting Suncare option too. Sure-fire #giftingwin.
