It’s coming down to the wire for holiday gifts, and we’re doing some last minute shopping ourselves! We’ve put together a quick list of holiday gift ideas for guys that will be sure to please the men in your lives. (And maybe everyone else around them!)

Last Minute Holiday Gift Ideas for Guys

Here’s a couple of gift ideas we would love to receive ourselves!

Sugarlands Distilling Company

Get your shine on with holiday moonshine from Sugarlands Distilling Company. I had my first taste of moonshine not that long ago, and realized how delicious it can be. Sugarlands does a great job with their award-winning spirits from their craft distillery in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Better yet, you can order some of the delicious concoctions delivered right to your front door!

From the straight-up authenticity of their prohibition-style Silver Cloud Tennessee Sour Mash to tasty flavors like Sweet Tea, Banana Pudding and Dark Chocolate Coffee, the quality moonshine products from Sugarlands are so darn good. We particularly enjoy the Appalachian Apple Pie Moonshine, which tastes just like the real thing. They use green apple and sweet caramel to flavor the moonshine, and it’s something I’ll bet even my grandma would have loved – especially for the holidays.

Moonshine from Sugarlands is our new favorite.

We made a simple and delicious cocktail from the Sugarlands Appalachian Apple Pie Moonshine. Here it is if you are so inclined to try it yourself at home.

Apple Pie Cider Featuring Sugarlands Appalachian Apple Pie Moonshine

  • 1 ounce Sugarlands Appalachian Apple Pie Moonshine
  • 2 ounces apple cider
  • 2 ounces ginger ale
  • Squeeze of lemon

Mix together and serve in a cocktail tumbler over ice. We garnished with thin slices of fresh apple and a cinnamon stick for good measure.

Delicious and a great entry to our list of  holiday gift ideas for guys! Find it at or purchase online at

Baldies Grooming Products

Ok one of us two dads (ok it’s Jon if that is any surprise) is balding. It’s nice to know there are grooming products geared towards guys like us, and Baldies is a great addition to our list of last minute holiday gift ideas for guys fo that very reason. If you have a baldy in your life that is ready to embrace his baldness, then this is the product line for him.

One of the things I like most about Baldies is that they incorporate natural products like avocado oil and clay into their formulas. First of all, I am obsessed with avocados so rubbing them on my head is just another delivery mechanism for one of my favorite things. But more than a personal favorite, avocado oil is rich in vitamin E, vitamin D, beta carotene, lecithin, and essential fatty acids that can help nourish and moisturize the skin. Plus clay from France like Baldies adds to their products has been used for centuries as a natural detoxifier and cleanser. Together, this means very good things for those of us who are follicly challenged.

These Baldies products are made especially for those of us who are follicley challenged.

We tried two products – the Baldies Shower Bar 001 and the Baldies Shave Bar 002. Both are formulated especially for the needs of bald men and ideal for all skin types. We found the shower bar to be versatile as a washing and shampooing bar for both skin and scalp. The shave bar lathers up really nicely, so whether you are shaving your face or your whole head you are sure to get the closest shave possible.

Earth Elements Shoes

Shoes are a very personal thing to us. It’s more than just being fashionable and looking good – they also have to be extremely comfortable. No longer are we willing to put up with fashion over function, and tossed all our poorly fitting and uncomfortable shoes long ago. That’s why we’re so thrilled to know about Earth Elements Shoes because they are the best combination of both! And on top of that they are made with recycled materials and sustainable processes, so Earth Elements Shoes are also socially responsible and mindfully crafted.

Love the style of these Earth Elements Shoes.

Fashion and comfort in the same shoe? Sign us up! That’s why we included Earth Elements Shoes on our list of holiday gift ideas for guys. I’ve been wearing these shoes for a couple of weeks now and absolutely love them. Made with expertise by Earth Shoes, these shoes benefit from more than 50 years of shoemaking.

We’ve got the Abound style from Earth Elements. (Yes, we share shoes because we both wear the same size!) These shoes look like desert boots and feel like sneakers. The taupe color goes with anything, but there are several other colors to choose from. We like the white soles which allow us to dress up or down wearing these shoes. There is another style called Berkeley that is equally cool.

Did I mention how much we love these shoes?
