You might know your brother as well as you know yourself. After all, you share the same childhood memories. You’ve been through it all together: the highs, the lows, and everything in between. But no matter how well you know someone, it doesn’t make shopping for them any easier. Whenever the holiday season or his birthday rolls around, you likely find yourself stressed and scrambling to find a present that will actually bring value to his life. And let’s be honest, more often than not, you probably resort to a last-minute option, like a gift card from CVS. While there’s a time and place for gag gifts and gift cards, we recommend setting procrastination and sibling rivalry aside to give a gift as unique and special as the guy you grew up with.

This personalized oak barrel actually ages spirits just like the full-sized versions in professional distilleries—only you won’t be waiting forever for quality booze, as the small size allows your spirits to age ten times faster.

Hero Portable Charcoal Grill System

Equaling the average size of a laptop, this ceramic-coated, portable grill is perfect for the beach, boat, campsite, or apartment patio. It’s the world’s first charcoal grill that uses something called Lavalite Charcoal Pods. They are plant-based, biodegradable, and eliminate harsh chemicals or additives during grilling. Plus, they make cleanup a breeze and are a joy to travel with.

Solo3 Wireless Headphones

You will be the best brother ever if you give him a pair of Beats for the holidays this year. The Solo 3s bring that high quality listening in a sleek, compact over-the-ear design. They come in a variety of color choices, so if he’s one to match his tech to his outfit of the day, all the more reason to add this to your shopping cart.

Experience gifts are always a good idea. Give a membership to All Out Studio, a fitness platform that provides hundreds of on-demand workouts with certified trainers. Not to toot our own horn or anything, but we have an exclusive Men’s Health channel with all of our favorite workout programs built by our very own editors and experts.

2-in-1 Wireless Charger Stand with MagSafe 15W

From Crook to Cook: Platinum Recipes from Tha Boss Dogg’s Kitchen By Snoop Dogg

Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart have spent some quality time together and this cookbook is to show for it. From his staple drink gin and juice and meal, baked mac n’ cheese to creative munchie dishes like Frito BBQ twists, you and your bro can bond over the meals in this book and the stories behind them.

These days, we can’t just leave the house with our phone, wallet keys. In the year 2020, that mantra quickly turned into phone, wallet, keys, face mask, hand sanitizer, portable charger, air pods. Lucky for all of us the cross-body belt bag is hip and cool, so pockets aren’t his only vessel. This one from Paravel easily folds up for packing and is made from sustainable materials. When you personalize it with your brother’s initials, this item becomes a keepsake. You can also tell him that 10% of the proceeds are donated to the NAACP Environmental and Climate Justice Program, so technically you also made a donation in his honor.

Everyone is either using or curious about using CBD these days. For the brother that needs to take a chill pill, now he literally can.

A common, subconscious, sentimental memory comes from the scent of the home you grew up in. Think about it for a sec. Home Sick candles capitalized on this idea by created signature scents from all different places. We love the idea of gifting your brother with a candle that represents your state, especially if you both moved away from home. Every time he burns it, he’ll think of all the good (and bad) times you’ve shared in the state that raised you.

Water Bottle Standard Mouth Bottle with Flex Cap

There is no water bottle like a Hydro Flask. The cult-favorite brand has their following because their product is so good. What most people don’t utilize, however, is the top handle for hiking. It’s great to hold because it gives you something to hold onto (mimicking a hiking stick) to balance your equilibrium. Drop this knowledge when you give him this gift.

His grill game is about to get an upgrade. With these steel wire baskets, he can say goodbye to the mess and complications of skewers. They are easy to use and clean, and are known to have a pretty long-life span. Get ready for an influx of dinner invites, because he’ll want to show off his new grilling skills with this toy.

A sneakerboot is the new hiking boot. A sportier take adds a fresh style element, while the boot brings all-weather performance he can count on for all his adventure outings. One notable feature to call out is the odor-resistant lining. As his sibling, you’re probably one of the only people comfortable enough to tell him he has smelly feet. A nicer way to do it is with these boots.

There is nothing worse than a tangled clump of cords. If he’s a traveler, he will especially love this case that comes complete with loops to organize and secure his otherwise tangled mess.

If your brother’s a health foodie, then a membership to Thrive Market for the entire year will literally be the best thing you could ever give him. It’s especially great in year 2020, when we realized how not fun going to an actual grocery store is. Thrive Market serves members a trusted edit of the healthiest grocery and lifestyle items at a lower than usual price point.

One positive of 2020 has been the influx of learning new skills at home. Whether he’s a seasoned musician or has never touched a pick before in his life, he will appreciate and enjoy the Oliver Jr. guitar. It’s a bit smaller than most, making it great for beginners to handle, but it packs a heavy punch. The size makes this a lovely travel guitar for your brother who is already musically inclined.

If he’s always been one to refuse a complicated skincare routine, then it’s time he tries Jaxon Lane. It comes with the absolute necessities for skin at any age: a moisturizer, face wash, sunscreen and their cult-favorite “Bro Mask.” After one week of using this, he’ll never fall back to his old ways.

Flannel-Lined Waxed Trucker Jacket

Iconic to the brand, this waxed trucker jacket is rugged, timeless, and like a fine wine, it gets better with age. It’s flannel-lined for added warmth and coated with weather-resistant sailcloth. It’s one of those closet items he’ll have for decades, rest assured that it’s always in style.

Gentleman Boisee Eau de Parfum Cologne

Cologne is always a good idea. And it’s even better when someone else picks it out. It’s a personal present that requires great thought. The latest from Givenchy is a warm and woodsy scent with a subtle spice. It’s among the best launches of the season.

This stylish retro kitchen addition will help turn his bachelor pad into a home. It doubles as a functional hot water vessel and a piece of mid-century décor.

In case he’s been a Top Gun fan for a while, or he just got into the film franchise with the latest movie, Top Gun: Maverick, maybe he’ll appreciate these Tom Cruise-approved sunglasses. He’ll want to wear them for every sunny occasion.

UV cleaning products have suddenly been popping up everywhere. HoMedics is a brand you can trust in this space, because of their multiple rounds of product testing. This smart phone bath will actually disinfect anything that can fit it in.

Pro x Wireless Lightspeed Gaming Headset

He’s probably not a professional gamer, but he might like to think that he is. Fuel his ego with a gaming headset the pros love and use. It’s wireless so it aids in the clutter free movement while delivering best-in-class memory foam comfort and sound.

His coffee table décor will look even better when topped with this catch-all rolling tray and magnetic scraper from Marley Natural. Even if he doesn’t live in a state where weed is legal, he can use it for his wallet, keys, and… well, we will leave the rest up to the imagination.

Detroit Tigers Vintage Poster

There is a fine line between a tacky sports poster (cough, frat star vibes) and a tasteful representation of his team. When in doubt, always go with something that is vintage-inspired or graphically designed. This retro baseball poster will make a lovely bedroom, living room, or basement decoration. Just make sure your brother gets it framed.

A tequila drinker can’t just drink any tequila. When drinking Mijenta’s Tequila Blanco, you can taste the quality and artful, slow distilleration process. The intense rich flavor of cooked agave and vanilla is enhanced by cinnamon and fruit. While we love a good margarita, this tequila is best on its own.

Show him the beauty of growing his own organic herbs, fruits, salads, and flowers. This gift is more than just a smart garden, it’s the idea of circularity. He will appreciate food so much more when it’s grown in his own home. And don’t worry, it comes with a companion app and self-watering system, making it nearly impossible to fail.

QuietComfort Noise Cancelling Earbuds

These are the smallest and most effective noise-cancelling buds on the market right now. And unlike other ear bud makers, thanks to the soft silicone outer, they are easy to wear all day long.

Destination Mars Colonizer Model Rocket Starter Set

Let your brother channel his inner with this model rocket. It’s the best kind of science project—the kind with smoke and flames. And it goes together super easy with no cutting, sanding, or painting required. (Phew!)

It’s tall enough to fit several bottles of wine, cans of beer and/or tall stacks of snacks. It’s durable enough to survive camping trips or just hours spent by the pool. Plus, it’s Bimini pink, named after the islands in the Bahamas, because, yes, it knows you desperately need a vacation.
