It can be a struggle for men to keep all of their stuff organized since they don’t have a purse, just really big pockets. This wooden dock is a great gift idea for a brother, since it gives them a place to store all of the things they use on a daily basis. It also comes with a wireless charger built-in to the dock for wireless charging. Docks like this are great gifts from sisters to use in their home or in their office. It’s a great alternative for just having your stuff all over the place. So, whether he puts his on his desk or nightstand, it’s sure to be used.
Does he love a good panini or does he enjoy grilling up a good steak in the summer? Then getting your brother this panini press grill that has loads of options, including functioning as a griddle or grill, is a great gift to give. This is one of the more expensive gift ideas for him on this gift guide, though the functionality and quality are worth it. You can easily control the temperature and the grill plates are removable and can be cleaned in the dishwasher, which is another bonus.
One of the best personalized gifts for brothers on this list that’s perfect for men who enjoy a good drink is this custom whiskey set. It comes in a couple of different designs to make it the perfect personalized gift to give. It also comes in a fancy box that really finishes it of as a proper present. I think this is a great Christmas present, because whiskey is the perfect drink for winter and a set like this will look great in front of a fireplace. Just make sure they actually drink it, otherwise, this set is a bit pointless.
Another great example of Christmas presents for your brother is a pair of nice slippers. These ones are pretty cheap and come in a couple of different colors to choose from. It’s a great gift idea, since they’re both comfortable and not expensive at all. It’s an easy item to get because you can’t really go wrong with a pair of comfy slippers. If you don’t like these ones, then be sure to take a look around at all the other options out there. And maybe one of the wackier ones is a perfect choice.
A more ‘summery’ idea is a set of beer chillers. These ones are great to keep your beer cold or even make them cold during the hot summer days. You simply put them in the freezer ahead of time and then slide them into the bottle when you need them. They even come with a lid on top you can drink through while the beer chiller is inside. This is a great gift idea for a guy who enjoys a nice cold beer during the warmer days. They also come in a nice box that really makes it a nice present to give.
If you’re looking for a good housewarming gift for your brother, then maybe these Star Wars patent prints are a fun gift to give. This set of six prints are a great piece of classy home decor that’s perfect for a Star Wars fan. Each print is 8″ by 10″ and would look great as a collection of prints on your wall. It’s a more classy way to celebrate your love for the franchise that only fans of the movies will immediately see are actually fan art. Just make sure they’re actually into Star Wars. Otherwise, look for another set of patent prints of something you know he likes.
No more need to carry a big wallet with you when you have one of these. They are basically small card cases that pop up the cards when you need them. They come in a couple of different colors and are great gifts for brother since they are just great to have, whether they use it to replace their wallet or as a business card holder. It’s a nice present that any brother would actually use. I personally love the leather look, though the other options are also pretty nice.
Does he love a good hit of hot sauce and does he enjoy cooking? Then this sriracha gift set is a fun gift to give. It comes with a bottle of actual sriracha sauce and a set of two tiny hot sauce bottle keychains to take your hot sauce with you wherever you go. All in all, it’s a great unique gift for a sibling who’s into cooking or takeout and will enjoy adding some heat to his favorite dishes with a simple and fun gadget set. You can also get the keychains separate if he has a different hot sauce brand he prefers.
This pair of dumbbells is the perfect gift idea for a brother who enjoys a good workout. These are easily adjusted with the dial on the side and have a safety feature so they lock up when out of their case to ensure no weights can fall off as you pick them up. Most adjustable dumbbells can be pretty expensive, luckily these ones are a pretty affordable option. So, if you’re brother enjoys lifting weight and could use a set like this, then maybe this might just be the perfect gift for him. Just make sure you have the budget to spare, as they’re still not cheap.
A good book is a classic Christmas present you can’t really go wrong with. And if you’re also looking for funny gifts to give, then this is the perfect thing to get. This funny book is filled with literal ‘fun facts’ and is just great to leaf through from time to time. So, no, it’s not some literary work of art, but he will love reading some passages from time to time. They come in a couple of different versions, so if you have multiple brothers, you can give each one a different one. And personally, I think they’re great for men to take with them to the toilet.
To make grilling meat or really any meat preparation that much easier, you can give your brother this wireless meat thermometer. You simply stick it in the meat and keep track of the temperature and cooking time on your phone. It works over Bluetooth and comes in a pretty bamboo case that also charges the probe. It’s a luxury gift idea for any brother that loves cooking or for that sibling who still hasn’t gotten the hang of cooking meat to perfection. This handy gadget is the perfect gift to give really anyone who enjoys a good steak.
If you’re looking for the best gifts for siblings, then this card game all about funny family situations is perfect for you. It’s a fun game to play with the whole family and all in good spirit and the good thing is that it can’t get really competitive since that’s not the kind of game it is. So, if your brother is anything like one of my brothers, that lack of competitiveness is a good thing. The game involves coming up with the most outrageous responses to a given scenario and the best one wins a point. It’s a fun game for the whole family, especially if they’re a bit insane.
Another great addition to this list of the best gifts for him is this portable campfire. It’s basically a big tin filled with soy wax and paper briquettes and is an easy way to have a campfire when you’re on a trip without having to build one. This is a great gift idea for any guy who enjoys hiking and camping and other outdoorsy adventures. It’s a nice gift that any outdoor-loving brother would love to get. And to make it even better, it’s also more eco-friendly than a traditional campfire.
Now, this present is perfect if you only have one brother, if you have more than one, it’s not as funny. This T-shirt comes in a couple of different colors and is a great funny gift for a brother who has a sense of humor. I would suggest only getting this if you have a good relationship with your brother so he knows you’re just kidding. It’s a great small gift idea to get him for his birthday or as a stocking stuffer for Christmas.
Does he love the NFL and would he like to know more about the history of the national football leagues? Then this book all about the first couple of years of the league and its founders is a great book for your brother. It tells the story of the beginnings of the NFL in the first half of the twentieth century. It’s a real book to read, so not a book to just leaf through from time to time, so make sure he does read a book from time to time, which is not necessarily the case for everyone.
Learn how to make your own kombucha at home with this fun starter brewing kit. It’s a great birthday or Christmas present for anyone who enjoys the fizzy drink. You get all the ingredients you need and a big jug to ferment the drink in. I think this is a fun way to be busy in the kitchen without making a big mess or immediately having to make a meal or bake something. It comes in a nice sturdy box that’s easy to wrap as a present, which makes it even better.
A good example of stylish personalized gifts for brothers is one of these custom glasses with whatever map you want on it by OrSomethingShop on Etsy. All you need to do is give them a location and they will print the map on these custom glasses. You can get whatever number of glasses you want, with four being a nice number for a set of glasses. These are really great handmade gifts that they’ll love to get. And don’t worry, they can use it for whatever drink they want.
If he has a pair of AirPods, a nice gift idea is a quality case to store them in. This leather case comes in a couple of colors and makes it easier to carry these with you.

This case also comes with a nice cleaning set as a bonus and is a great gift for someone who loves a good gadget and has a pair of AirPods. The case is made from real leather, so if you don’t like that, then maybe go for a faux leather option instead.
Does he enjoy watching baseball and would love to visit some of the major league baseball stadiums? Then getting your brother this map of all the stadiums across the US is a great idea.

It’s a fun gift for any guy who’s into baseball. So, if he is, then maybe you’ve just found the perfect present for him. Just make sure that he has the opportunity to at some point visit some of them.
A nice way to get the perfect cup of coffee without having to buy an entire coffee machine is to use a french press like this one. This french press quickly makes the perfect coffee and is easy to use, clean, and store. It comes in a couple of different color options and is a great housewarming gift for the brother who enjoys a good cup of coffee but doesn’t have a coffee machine. It’s also a way to save money since you don’t have to go to a coffee shop anymore to get your daily dose of caffeine. And to top it off, it’s really affordable.
This fun starter kit to grow your own peppers on Amazon is a great gift idea for that brother who can use a new hobby or enjoys learning new skills.

It’s also a great backpack to have on trips because it can fit lots of stuff in it without being too big to properly carry on your back.

If you’re looking for a versatile Christmas gift for guys that they can use for different activities, then an insulated water bottle like this is a great option. It comes in a couple of different sizes and comes with three different lids all perfect for different circumstances. It’s a great bottle to have during a workout or a cycling trip, or to take with you while camping. Even if he doesn’t do either of those things, then it’s still great to take with you to work to keep fresh water with you wherever you are.
A multitool like this one is a great birthday or Christmas present for the brother who is always fixing things or just spends a lot of time outdoors and is always looking for certain tools. This multi-plier has all the basic tools you need to get most jobs done. It’s a great thing to take with you on trips and just really to go everywhere. You have all the necessary tools to do whatever you need with you, from screwdrivers to a pair of pliers, this little gadget has it all.
If you’re looking for a fun backyard game you can play with adults and is easy to take with you on a trip or to a barbeque, then a set of bocce balls like this is a great idea.

Another great addition to this gift guide for brothers is one of these monogrammed luggage tags. These are great personalized gifts for a man who travels a lot and can use a good-quality luggage tag. You get to choose from a couple of different designs and leather colors to really customize one of these luggage tags. Of course, they are a bit more expensive than your average luggage tags, though they’re not unreasonably priced. They’re a nice stocking stuffer or smaller gift that’s truly personal.
One of these state maps to be filled up with beer caps is another great present for him. You can collect different caps from different beers in one of these and it’s just a fun piece of home decor. It would make for a great housewarming gift idea and you can get it in whatever state you want and will fit about 50 beer caps in each state map. I think this is a pretty funny gift to give that any beer lover will appreciate. Especially if he tries out new breweries from time to time.

A nice knife block looks great in any kitchen and would make for a great housewarming gift for your sibling if they enjoy cooking (or just loves knives). This set comes with a nice set of knives and the knives themselves look pretty great too. If he already has a good set of knives, then you can also get a separate knife block on its own.

They’re a great small present that you can easily wrap up as a stocking stuffer and are great things to get an adult man who probably doesn’t really like most of his cufflinks. These are really the perfect cufflinks for retro video gaming fans.
A nice cookbook is normally a present you’d expect to get for a woman, but that’s just old-fashioned. There are a bunch of great cookbooks out there specifically for men filled with healthy dishes most men will enjoy. This one is called ‘A Man, A Pan, A Plan’ and is filled with easy recipes that you only need to use one pan for, so a guaranteed easy clean-up.

A good power bank is a classic gift for men that they’ll actually use. This one is even better than most, since it’s also compatible with wireless charging and has a wireless charging pad on it.

This gift idea for a brother is also usable for devices that still need a wire to charge. It’s a great gadget to have when you travel a lot, or when you’re just really good at forgetting to charge your phone.
Another great housewarming gift idea on this list is a doormat like this one that’s perfect for introverts who just enjoy their space and time alone. There are loads of funny mats out there that are a great funny gift for people who just moved or as a birthday gift for a guy who you know doesn’t enjoy having company over. And yes, that is perfectly acceptable, not everyone enjoys constant company or get-togethers. Just make sure they get the joke and won’t be insulted.

This duffel bag by Herschel is available in lots of different colors on amazon.com and is a great practical gift to give. It’s a staple piece of luggage most men should have since it’s so easy to take with you by just throwing it in the trunk of the car. It’s also really useful to keep a pair of spare clothes or workout gear in and to store it in your car to have that with you at all times.
This is another great funny gift for a sibling who also loves pizza. This basically replaces a pizza oven and is perfect for melting your pizza topping to the perfect crispiness and cheesiness. It’s not the most practical kitchen appliance, but it sure is a fun gadget to have and it does actually make a great pizza. The pan simply rotates through the oven bit and slowly bakes the pizza to perfection, and you have perfect control since you can check it without having to even open an oven door.

It comes in lots of different colors and finishes and is not at all as expensive as you might think. It’s a great Christmas present for a music lover and just a really nice gift to give.
This board game is one of my personal favorites and a great game to play during the holidays with family. You can play it with up to five players and is relatively quick to play but involves a good deal of strategy and thinking ahead. This is the standard version that works with a map of the US, though the European version is pretty fun as well. So, depending on what you prefer, you can get the game for that continent or country. Especially the European countries are well-represented in the available versions of this board game.
If you’re looking for gifts for brother for around the house, then these ceramic coasters are a great gift idea. You can get these that have a nice cork bottom to protect the actual table.

You can find a set of coasters like these in a bunch of different options, so have a look around.
One of the best nifty and cool gadgets to get your brother is a tactical pen like this one that comes with lots of different tools built into it. From a multi-tool to a torch and glass breaker, this pen is pretty powerful. It’s a great small gift that any man would love to have. It’s especially great for handy people, so don’t give this to someone who isn’t particularly handy or interested in how things work. What it is, however, is the perfect gift for guys who love a good gadget and are handy to boot.
If you want to get him something crafty, then getting a beer brewing kit can be a great original and fun option.
