Gift Guide: The Guy Friend (Or More Than A Friend)

Dudes—so seemingly low maintenance, yet so hard to buy for! We get that you might need more inspo than usual when buying something for a guy in your life. We’ve rounded up some of our go-to gifts for men that go beyond shaving sets and sweaters. Hopefully they get you something good back 😉

Origins Clear Improvement Mask

Getting rid of blackheads is a universal satisfaction. Help them up their skincare game (or start it in the first place) with this charcoal mask from Origins. If they’re into it, you can even follow up with a custom face oil. Boys can enjoy a Sunday night mask too.

Black Diffuser

You would be shocked at how much the boyfriends of vitruvi love their diffusers. There’s something about mixing and blending their own “brew” that guys find very enjoyable. The Black Stone Diffuser is a classic—masculine and clean. Pair it with a more woodsy oil, like Spruce or Grove, and they’ll be happy little scent chemists.

Away Backpack

This backpack from Away is so legit. Let me just rattle off some of the features: a place for your keys, laptop, water bottle, easy access to your passport. Its clean and modern design is practical without being too sporty. It’s the perfect travel companion. Plus there’s a strap on the back that lets you store it on the handles of your carry-on suitcase, so it rolls wherever you roll.

Air Fryer

These can vary in price, so you can go as big or reasonable as you want, but the bottom line is if you give a man a vessel to fry things in, he will. French fries, yam fries, fried chicken wings, deep fried Oreos. The possibilities are really endless—and an air fryer is a healthier way to do it. Win win.

Insulated Growler

Keeping in the food and beverage arena, this insulated growler makes a great gift for the beer (or cider) loving guy in your life. It’s great for filling up before a camping trip or heading up to a cabin somewhere over the holidays. Equally (if not more) useful in the summer time.
