Welcome to Dressed for My Day. Today I’m sharing another Christmas gift guide and this time I’m focusing on the perfect gifts for your main man. These gifts come highly recommended by my main man, my husband James. So I’m suggesting gifts for the guy you love and do life with.
James is a 50-something professional with varied interests, such as sports, photography, history, board games and cooking. If you’re shopping for a younger guy, I invite you to check out my Gift Guide for Young Men. But let’s see what I’ve picked out (with James’ help) for the main man in your life.
Patagonia Better Sweater® Quarter Zip Jacket // My husband would generally rather pick out his own dress shirts, suits and slacks. But he loves for me to select him a new casual pullover like this Patagonia quarter zip jacket. And I can shop for it from Nordstrom with confidence because they give free shipping and return shipping. Plus they price match, so if Patagonia drops the price, so will Nordstrom, and I can know I’m getting the best possible price.
Flannel Pajama Pants // My guy’s the kind who will wear the same pajama pants to lounge in for too many years…if I let him. Ha! So I like to buy him a new pair of these each year. I especially love this large plaid, but they come in other patterns and color combinations, too.
Quarter Zip Wool Pullover // This sharp looking pullover will be perfect for my main man’s casual work environment. It’s available in a number of beautiful shades. I’ll probably go with blue to match James’ eyes!
Bose® QuietComfort® 35 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones II with Google Assistant // It might seem counter-intuitive to shop for electronics at Nordstrom, but again their price-matching policy combined with their free shipping gives me the confidence to shop for this pricier gift there. I bought James wireless headphones several years ago, and he still says they were the best gift ever. On Saturdays when he’s watching college football all day and I don’t have to hear it, I completely agree! Best gift ever!
Feetures Be Bold Cushion Crew Socks // I was recently gifted these men’s crew socks from Feetures, so I passed them on to my husband (who has a whole big draw full of socks). But when he put these on he voluntarily told me he’d be more than willing to get rid of most of his socks if he could have more of these. These socks are designed with anatomically correct contouring for the left foot and the right foot, plus they have targeted compression in the arch for all day support. James reported that his feet actually felt better after wearing these to work all day. If your guy’s on his feet a lot in his less-than-favorite shoes, he’ll definitely appreciate the “little hug” these socks give his feet.
Magnetic Wristband // For the handyman who’s always losing his screws (hahaha! I couldn’t resist!), this magnetic wristband may be an unexpected and appreciated gift. It’s simple really, but he’ll enjoy the way nails, screws and drill bits “stick with him” while he works.
Gorilla Carts GOR400-COM Steel Garden Cart with Removable Sides // Love the little wagons you get to use at the nursery when you buy your spring plantings? Then have one for home use, too. Whether your guy loves to work in the yard and bears with it out of necessity, he’ll appreciate this hand steel garden cart with removable sides for easy use.
Masterbuilt Smoke Hollow SH19079518 Digital Electric Smoker // If your main man is into smoking meats…or you’d like for him to be into smoking meats!..he’ll love this digital electric smoker. This is the kind of smoker I imagine Tim “the Tool Man” Taylor having. Ha!
Coaches Sideline Performance Half-Zip Pullover Jacket // My main man loves rooting on the Georgia Bulldogs. So this Georgia half-zip pullover is perfect for him. But you’ll find similar coaches gear and fan gear here. Through Wednesday, November 27, save up to 65% sitewide with code TURKEY.
TravelWise Packing Cube System // I’ve included these packing cubes in my Women’s Gift Guide, but if your guy travels frequently, he may enjoy using these handy packers, too. They definitely come in male-friendly colors. I find that guys like to pack things. Ha!
TEKTON Instant Read Digital Tire Gauge With Lighted Nozzle // Now here’s a super handy tool. No more second guessing that little tire gauge you’ve had forever. This one will give your main man the exact reading he’s looking for when checking the tire pressure.
Wooden Watch Case // Men sometimes collect watches the way women gather necklaces and other jewelry. If your guy has more than a couple of watches, he’ll love receiving this sleek watch case. The case will keep his watches from gathering dust on his chest of drawers and the box itself looks polished and sophisticated.
Hamilton Beach Dual Breakfast Sandwich Maker // My husband has more of an affinity for kitchen gadgets than I do. His mother gave him a single version of this breakfast sandwich maker and I’m not sorry about it! He loves pulling it out and whipping us up some egg sandwiches for breakfast…or dinner! The only problem is I have to eat mine while he makes his. This dual sandwich maker would solve that problem quite nicely!
Warren Leather Messenger Bag by Fossil // I’ve been wanting to get my husband a new leather messenger bag for years. This may be the Christmas I finally follow through. He carries a canvas one now, so I know he loves the style. But my guy deserves this chic leather…and it’s on sale! PLUS use code INTHEBAG to get 30% off your purchase through December 1.
Fossil Minimalist Three-Hand Brown Leather Watch // I love the sleek, no-fuss look of this Fossil Minimalist watch. If your guy likes a basic watch, this is the one. But you’ll find many more Fossil watches to choose from here. And Fossil is already giving you Black Friday prices with 30% off your entire purchase with code INTHEBAG through 12/1/19 at midnight.

Blessed for My Day
I don’t know if your circumstances right now make you glad or sad. I don’t know if you’re lacking or if your cup runneth over. And I don’t know if your relationships are all at peace or if they’re better characterized by friction and strife. You may or may not feel like celebrating Thanksgiving this year.
But I do know that God is in control. And I know that He is at work, both in the world and in your life. He promises us hope and a future. He is steadfast and He is good. So I invite you to choose thanksgiving this year, even if your feelings are more like resentment and disappointment. And I believe that as you choose to express your gratitude to God, He will strengthen your heart and renew your hope.
Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe. ~ Hebrews 12:28
