Buying gifts for men is often seen as difficult, especially when it’s birthday or Christmas presents and you’re spending a bit more money on them (if they’ve been good!). But there’s a wide variety of cool presents for men out there – if you look in the right places. Here’s a small selection from companies offering a range of prices and product types that we think will make great gift ideas for the man in your life, be they your partner, your dad or even your son-in-law!
Innerfyre Co essential oil diffuser
This sleek USB diffuser makes it easy to transform the car into a space of calm (or any other mood of choice!). With the ability to diffuse essential oils straight from their bottles, the waterless essential oil diffuser is fuss-free, easy to set up and portable. It’ll be the highlight of any office, car or man cave! The USB diffuser fits into any cup holder, and works with little to no noise.
Playing with oils and different scent combinations can also be a fun way to spark creativity, making the diffuser a great gift idea for men. Innerfyre Co has you covered for this, with its wide range of over 20 different essential oils. Best-selling oils amongst male customers include Bergamot, Lavender and Cypress. Or, if you’re not sure about which essential oils to get, simply opt for a gift set. For example, Unleash Your Inner Power is a set with four essential oils (Clove, Litsea, Grapefruit, Eucalyptus) that promote motivation and focus.
Soulviiibes bracelets with a difference
In case you didn’t know, bracelets can be great gifts for men too! Carrying energy that evokes the place they came from, these lava bracelets from Soulviiibes are spiritual presents for men in your life. Rich in minerals and created by the fire energy of a volcano, the stones are said to exhibit a natural tendency to calm emotions and enhance focus. The lava stones come with other crystals that also carry their own meanings, such as the Tiger’s Eye stone, often associated with protection from evil spirits.
Lightweight and versatile, the bracelets can be an everyday accessory or even a personal tool for aromatherapy. The lava stones’ naturally porous surfaces make them ideal for diffusing essential oils. By adding a drop or two of lemon or lavender essential oils to the stones, it can help relieve stress and anxiety and boost energy levels.

If he needs a bit of flexibility!
Who says guys can’t do Pilates? Sign your man up for classes at OptionsPilates, and we’re sure they’ll be hooked in no time. The primary focus of these workouts is on postural muscles, which are essential for balance and to maintain energy throughout the day. They’re also helpful in preventing backaches and other pain caused by weak posture. A common misconception is that pilates is only for women or not “real” exercise – in fact, the Options instructors love showing male clients just how taxing these exercises can be!
Men particularly enjoy the studio’s mat pilates group classes, one-on-one sessions and Jungle Sports groups – especially the latter. Jungle Sports groups offer suspension training that focuses on stimulating and strengthening the muscular and neuromuscular system. They’re also great for those hoping to enhance their sporting performance. The classes work well as individual exercise routines as well as additions to other workouts. Many of the studio’s male customers continue classes for the long term once they experience the benefits of a stronger back, neck and core.
If you’re looking for more Christmas presents, here are some great ideas for home décor gifts.
