Let's not go with a crazy long intro and get down to business with this awesome Small Business Holiday Gift Idea Guide for Men!

Weekly 2021 Holiday Gift Guide ~ Ideas for Men!

1. We are going to start out strong and bring you Yellow Rose Gifting's Toolman Man Box This Gift Box is not only so cool looking it has all of your guy's favorites on the inside ~ Smokey Cheddar Cheese Bar, Klements Beef Summer Sausage, Box of Classic Water Crackers, a Mini Cheese Slicer, a Mini Jar of East Shore Sweet & Tangy Mustard and 2 Mini Bags of Jelly Belly Jelly Beans!

If your man is an Houston Astros fan Yellow Rose Gifting Company also has a BaseBall Box that any Astros fan would love to recieve!

With their Businessman Man Box, The Fish Boss Man Box, and more you can check all the men off your list with Yellow Rose Gifting Company! They also have gifts for the women on your list too!! Yay!

2. With Scout and Cellar's 2020 MIXTRACK PINOT NOIR you can take care of not only the wine lover on your list, but also the music lover with this awesome label! The Mixtrack Pinot Noir is from Chile, has strawberry, cherry and coffee and is vegan. If red wines aren't what the man on your list fancies Megan White can help you find the best wines for everyone on your list!

3. Is the man on your list not a wine drinker? How about coffee?! We think an awesome gift for any coffee drinker is the Artisan Culture's Stardust Signature Blend Coffee. With a mix of Africa and Central America origins this blend was carefully selected selected to bring notes of citrus and almond flavors with a slight chocolate touch. This is the perfect gift to brighten anyone's morning! Artisan Culture's state of the art coffee roasting process doesn't burn gas it uses an electric heating element and clean air flow to induce beans to levitate while roasting! This process makes sure that the beans have minimal contact with the metal drums and is free of carbon pollutants. They get their coffee from around the world from unique farms that are well known for quality and consistency. If you're in the North Houston Are don't walk ~ run to try all of Artisan Culture's blends at their beautiful coffee shop in the Spring/The Woodlands Area.

4. Need a practical gift idea? Try the FlatOut Multi-Purpose Tire Sealant by MultiSeal! And guy would love to see this in their stocking! This miracle in a bottle prevents flat tires & seals leaks and serious punctures up to 1/2 inch! FlatOut is a product that is trusted by the military and prevents up to 95% of flats and virtually eliminates slow leaks. This is piece of mind in a bottle especially if you have teenagers driving. MultiSeal has a variety of products that you can check out HERE!

5. Got a guy on your list that loves to workout, golf, run, or is just very active? Check out Zyia Activewear with Cynthia Henning! Our suggestion is the Zyia Men's Black Compression Tights! These training tights have flat-serged seams to eliminate chafing while compressive, breathable fabric supports muscles and wicks away sweat. Perfect for running, hiking or working out! Though this was our pick for Zyia we want to make it clear that they have a wide variety of clothes for men, women, teens and kids! Including casual clothes and office wear! Comfortable office clothes?! Sign me up! Visit Zyia's website today to see everything they offer.

6. Next more clothes! Yay! When we think of men's clothes our minds go straight to J. Hilburn with Amanda Bentley! With J. Hilburn's stylish, but classic designs it was hard to choose a recommendation! We couldn't take our eyes off this Navy Interlock Jersey Pullover! It is classic, yet a statement piece at the same time. We think any guy on your list would love see this when they open their gift box.

7. We think the perfect accessory for any guy is the The Working Man Man Junk Bag by MakeUp Junkie! You probably thought MakeUp Junkie Bags only sold awesome MakeUp Bags ~ well they do, but they also sell bags for men too! The Working Man Bag is a thick canvas bag with a thin wax coating and features a black wipeable interior. These are great for traveling junk, gym junk, electronic junk, wallet junk, tool junk ~ any type of junk! This is an all around excellent gift for any guy!!

8. Since you're reading this list we know you are the hunt for a unique gift. And we have given you 7 already, but we have another! Sandra Gift Shop's Aviation Club Jet Desk Clock is our next pick! The vintage design and aviation club clock face will make a unique addition to any workspace. This is just the tip of the iceberg for awesome gifts from Sandra Gift Shop ~ check them out ASAP!

9. Looking for an out of the box idea?! We mentioned this idea in the Home edition of our guide, but we had to include it here too! Mosquito treatment for your yard! Once the weather starts warming it is nearly impossible to enjoy your outdoor spaces especially here in the Houston, TX area!! We can not recommend Mosquito Authority enough. They spray our yard every 3 weeks and we don't even remember what mosquitoes are now. We have completely taken our yard back! And here's the best part ~ they offer a ‘mosquito-free guarantee’ which means, if you are bothered by mosquitos between treatments, they will come back and treat again for FREE!! Seriously, Mosquito Authority is the best and they have locally owned locations all over the U.S. This would be voted best gift of the year by your guy for sure!!!
