best gifts for menCourtesy

Whether you're shopping for his birthday or just getting a headstart on some holiday shopping (kudos to you!), you're probably feeling pressured to find the perfect present—especially if he's the kind of guy who already has everything. Boyfriends, dads, even new dads—shopping for men can be tough. But before you start stressin', know this: Choosing the best gifts for men can actually be very simple and straightforward. Don't overthink it. (Plus, Cosmo is here with some recommendations, so there's that.)

But first, don't think for a second that I included any ugly ties that he'll just be throwing in the back of his closet. No, these are thoughtful gift ideas that he'll actually, gladly use. Below, you'll find warm-weather pieces (like shorts) and accessories (like sunnies) that won't need a gift receipt. And if the guy’s already got too many clothes, I've also added in a couple of outdoorsy tingz and a few affordable tech options and gadgets also worth wrapping up. You should really see these ideas for yourself, so scroll through to have a peep (and maybe shop all 98 of 'em).
