Christmas shopping for men always seems to be more difficult than shopping for ladies, do you agree? Therefore, as part of The Glam Pad’s holiday gift guide series with Cattlebaron in Cashmere @cattlebaronincashmere, Alison is here today to help! For this year’s list, Alison interviewed her husband, father, and brother-in-law to create a wide assortment of gift ideas, certain to please every man on your Christmas list. My husband is always terribly difficult to shop for, and Alison’s expertise has helped me tremendously many times. I am delighted to welcome her today!
These polarized wooden glasses are perfect to wear at the lake or when swimming – they’re water proof and they float!

Treat any man in your life to a Vineyard Vines tie bedecked with his favorite NFL team’s logo.
Since I can remember, my Dad has never left the house without a crisp, white handkerchief in his back pocket. You never ask for one back after it’s been used, so he always has a generous supply in his drawer.
I gift my Dad a pair of Ugg slippers every single Christmas, and this style is by far his favorite.
The BBQ Bible from one of Texas’ most iconic food establishments.
My Dad’s current favorite book – a great gift for any sports fan!

All of the men in my family own this comfortable and breathable shirt in multiple colors. We call this “the official shirt of the weekend”.

GADGETS & ELECTRONICS:
Whether for sporting events or hunting, these are the best binoculars for the price according to the men in my family.
My husband thinks that every man should be the “Master of His Car.” This will allow him to figure out why that pesky Check Engine light is on without going to a mechanic and paying a diagnostic fee.
My Husband loves how he can jump start a car without messing with jumper cables or involving another vehicle. He thinks every vehicle should be equipped with one!
Every man needs this item around the house whether he knows it or not. Per my Husband, this electric pressure washer provides all the power you need for jobs around the house. (The only issue is every neighbor will want to borrow it!)
My Husband loves these headphone for how he can listen to music or just cancel out any background noise when he needs to work from home. Now they’re even better with the Google Assistant feature!
We love this portable speaker because it allows us to have high-quality music at the Ranch, in the garage while working on a project, or out by the pool.
My parents enjoy playing old 45s on their antique jukebox every night, and now here’s a much more accessible way to enjoy a bit of the nostalgia of vinyls.

My brother-in-law’s current favorite lures for bass fishing.
According to my Husband, every man needs a good ladder, and this multifunctional one is the Holy Grail! If you want to see a man get excited about a ladder, this is the gift to buy.
A nice-sized backgammon set in a handsome chestnut case.
This game is perfect for the game room or Man Cave and will provide fun for the entire family. Per my Husband, spend the money on the original Pop-A-Shot – don’t go cheap or you’ll regret it!
One of my Husband’s favorite snacks is sharp cheddar cheese and summer sausage. This sampler is sure to please!
Where’s the Beef? Here it is! This will have any man firing up the grill!
Take it from a Texan — this 6-pack of spice rub will send any steak into the next stratosphere! The best on the market!
Not only does this gift set include sauces, rubs and Bloody Mary mix, but it comes packaged in a fantastic tool box.
This cooler is the ideal companion to any BBQ pit – perfect for parties to chill drinks while your guy mans the grill.
While it’s an “investment” item, I gifted this to my Husband last year and it has technology that allows you to slow cook a brisket “like a boss” without having to babysit it. We love this smoker!
For the cigar enthusiast, the perfect travel case at a great price!
Also for the cigar aficionado, this travel humidifier with cutter is the perfect gift for the man who travels for weekend trips to the Ranch or lake house and back.
For any man who enjoys a good bottle of wine, this innovative technology is a must-have for his bar or cellar.
For any man who has ever expressed interest in dabbling in home brewing, this starter kit includes everything needed for a successful first batch!
My Dad will literally tell anybody who will listen about the exceptional quality and value of these razors. He has converted my Husband and brother-in-law as well. (I know they’re razors, but believe the men in my life – they’re pretty special!)
A great way to introduce any man to these fantastic Jack Black products.
No man can travel without his handy Dopp Kit, and this is one of my favorites to gift!
