Getting the men in your life the perfect present to show gratitude can be tricky. However, when you think about it, it’s not as hard as you might have initially thought. Picking something special just for them will make them feel valued and loved.
Luckily, we have tons of thank you gifts for men but we’ve rounded up our top 11 options for any man in your life: dad, brother, friend, colleague, uncle, or teacher. You name it, there’s a gift for everyone!
For the walkers in your life, hiking socks are an essential. Whilst young people don’t always appreciate socks as a gift, the older you get, the more excited you get about being gifted socks! If it means you don’t have to buy them yourself, it’s a worthwhile gift.
Coming in five different colourway packs, our thermal hiking socks have been designed to keep your feet warm and dry but without sweating too much. Any walker will be thankful for the extra cushioned sole and stretchy materials, any outdoorsy man will love these hiking socks as a gift.
If the man you’re buying for is a homebody, how about a brand new pair of suede slippers? Talk about ultimate comfort and cosiness! The Skipsea slippers feel so luxurious with the fleece lining too, so much so that they might actually want to live in them instead of shoes!
The slip-on mule style makes them so easy to slip on and off, these slippers are perfect for any country gentleman. They’re available in two colours, navy and chocolate brown, and we know many customers buy them in both colours! You can’t have too many slippers, right?
One gift that every country gentleman will love is a new leather belt. Belts can be hard to find on the high street nowadays, which is why they’re some of our most popular items. The Sledmere belt is debossed with a subtle pheasant print and has a brass finish on the belt buckle, making it look very high-end.
Choosing the right colour is probably the trickiest part. The Sledmere belt is available in tobacco (a tan shade), a darker waxy brown, and a deep red colour. You can’t go with a light or dark brown shade but the dark red is such a gorgeous shade too.
With the cold weather here to stay, you’ll need a cosy hat to keep your head warm on countryside walks and days out with the family. Our Ollie beanie hat is a great, inexpensive gift for those working with a budget. The cable knit style is timeless but still looks very on-trend!
It’s available in three colours, navy, olive, and iron, meaning at least one shade will go with every outfit. A beanie hat is a must-have accessory for any man’s wardrobe. It’s pretty versatile as you can keep the hem rolled up for a shorter beanie or roll it down for a baggier version.
For the men in your life who love nothing more than a very practical gift, how about buying them a brand new backpack? Whether it’s for work, family trips, or travel (or all of the above), they will need a rucksack with tons of pockets and plenty of storage.
Our walker’s backpack features a small front pocket, two larger compartments, two side-pocket drinks holders, all just on the exterior. Internally, there are two phone pockets, two pen holder pockets, a larger Velcro compartment for laptops or tablets as well as a smaller mesh-lined pocket at the rear. The straps are very well padded and adjustable and the external material is water-resistant. It’s the perfect backpack!
For those who are particularly outdoorsy, one thing that they might never have considered buying for themselves but would love to have is a boot bag. Here, they can store tall boots or wellington boots, whether they’re dirty or clean.
Our boot bag comes in fourteen patterns so make sure to choose one that they’ll love! We’ve included a reinforced base on the bag for heavier footwear as well as a sturdy carry handle and a full zip closure. They will get so much use out of their boot bag!
For any country gentleman in your life, it’s a necessity that they own a flat cap. Whether you’re buying their first flat cap or replacing an older one, a tweed version will never go out of style. You know we love our Harris tweed here at Rydale so you know it will be classic and durable.
With six tweeds to choose from, these tweed caps are made to last. They feature a stitched down peak, a deep red satin lining, and a deeper back for comfort. When you give one of these to a special man in your life, they’ll be wearing it for years to come.
One gift that many of us buy for others are toiletries. They’re simple to buy, easy to find, and are pretty inexpensive. However, a lovely touch is to put them inside a tweed wash bag. That way, they not only have somewhere to store them but also can use it for any travel they might have coming up.
As always, our tweed and leather materials are made to last, making our wash bags an investment piece. The simple design means it can be used not just as a wash bag but as storage for nik-naks outside of travel season.
Whilst we’re on the subject of travel, an overnight/weekend bag is a lovely gift for men who enjoy their holidays. Maybe they travel for work frequently or even just need a larger bag to take for work (they also make a great gym bag too).
The cotton canvas exterior is long-lasting and the cross-body strap makes it super practical. This weekend bag is so spacious so there’s no need to pack light! The olive shade is timeless too and we reckon this will become their go-to bag for any trip.
Cosiness doesn’t just have to be for the women in your life. Men deserve to be warm and toasty too! One of the comfiest items in our new collection has to be the half-zip Fordon sweatshirt. The cotton blend makes this understated design perfect for any casual occasion. We love it as a loungewear item but it also looks great with jeans and sneakers for a chilled day out.
It also makes a great layering piece over the top of a long-sleeved top and underneath a padded gilet or bomber jacket. Whilst half-zip styles are very on-trend this season, they’re actually a classic style of sweatshirt.
If there’s one item of clothing that every man should have, it’s a fleece gilet. They’re one of the comfiest pieces to own and are such a transitional piece for between seasons and between occasions. We love to wear ours for smart casual occasions with a checked shirt underneath or layered over the top of a rugby shirt for more casual times.
The Huggate style, in particular, is one of our thickest styles and what makes it stand out from the rest is the moleskine leather trim. It’s available in thirteen colours so you might end up starting a collection for that special man in your life!
With so many choices for thank you gifts for men, you’ll have a hard time picking just one. However, it’s all about treating the special men in your life with a thoughtful gift, perfect for their lifestyle and what they love. Most men prefer a practical gift, which is why we’ve compiled 11 thank you gifts for men that are versatile and durable.
