A Gift Guide for the Man in Your Life + A LivingSocial Giveaway

A Gift Guide for the Man in Your Life

Small Disclosure

It’s gift guide season again, ladies and gentlemen. And if you’re like most Americans, December 19th is absolutely NOT too late for you to make use of this. I think it’s fitting that this last minute gift guide would be about the kings of last minute shopping – our men. LOL

A Wicked Awesome Gift Guide from LivingSocial

If you’re looking for last minute gifts for your guy, then LivingSocial is the place to look. They have all sorts of offers that appeal to the man in your life, from golfing to skydiving to steakhouse and more. If you can imagine it, you can probably find a great deal on it from LivingSocial. It’s a gift giver’s paradise.


Whether it’s a gym membership or a golf outing, almost all guys love sports. All you have to do is type in your zip code or home town, and LivingSocial will show you any deals they have in and around your area.

This is one of my favorites on my gift guide for guys. Escapes can be anything from a weekend getaway without the kids to a themed trip. I even found a murder/mystery themed weekend getaway. Now my husband and I can be Fred and Daphne!


Dining makes my gift guide, because men have stomachs. Huge stomachs. In fact, you show me a man who doesn’t love to sit down to a big meal. Seriously, show me. You can’t. In my area alone, I found all kinds of great deals on bars, steak houses, and more places where my husband would spend the entire day if he were able.

You’ll find all kinds of crazy cool stuff in the event section of LivingSocial. It’s the catch-all of the site, and I mean that in a good way. I found everything from paintball deals to a beer brewing class to skydiving. Pretty cool!


LivingSocial isn’t just deals on places and events. They even have shopping deals, too. In their gadget section, you can find everything from smartphone accessories to computer accessories to personal audio equipment and more. Of course, December 19th might be a touch late for this, but hey, there’s always next year, you slacker! ?

    I agree! My husband is all about gadgets especially hi tech gadgets!

  3. Raine Vollor

    I would use it to get tickets to a show.

  4. Lauren

    I would use it on restaurants or a harbor cruise.

  5. loisaltermark

    We did a harbor cruise a few years ago and it was so much fun. Restaurants are always good choices.

  6. Barney

    This is a great post with awesome ideas all ladies should pay attention.

  7. Annemarie LeBlanc

    This is a great post for ladies who still have no clue what to give the man in their life.

  8. Alissa Apel

    I like the Heat Reveal Magic Mug and 100% Grass-Fed Organic Steak!

  9. Sarah Bailey

    I have to admit I’ve always fancied a heat reveal mug, I mean it’s a double surprise. x

  10. Michelle C

    I would probably use it for either a Segway tour or a restaurant!

  11. siegalpaula

    I would probably use it to go rock climbing!

  12. April Mims

    Living Social has some great gift ideas. A restaurant is always a great gift for anyone in my family.

  13. Crystal

    We love to eat around here! Restaurants are always a great idea.

  14. kristimaloney

    I’ve always wanted to try brewing my own beer. My husband only seems to be interested in drinking it. lol. The gift of going out to eat at a restaurant is always a great gift.

  15. Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle

    That is so cool! I think my husband would love a trip to a steak house and a golf course.

  16. Liz Mays

    I’m pretty sure that would be perfect for my boyfriend too. There may be some nice golfing deals in my area.

  17. Carol Cassara (@ccassara)

    Giving “experiences” to me is the ultimate. Making a memory is better than “things”.

  18. Cash Flow Diaries

    Honestly you nailed this to the tee. I would love any one of those gifts! I didnt know about living social either. Thanks for the info.

  19. Jeanette

    All of these are great gifts! I finished with my hubby, but I have a few other people that I do need and they would love some of these items.

  20. jenniferhay

    These are great gift options! I can definitely see us using a few of these.

  21. Sarh S

    I have to say that figuring out what to by him is always the hardest! I can rattle off a list of stuff I want or need, typically stuff for the house… so much easier than his “I don’t know”.

  22. Terri Ramsey Beavers

    This is a great giveaway, thanks for the chance to win. I’m not married so I never know what men like. What a great gift list of ideas.

  23. Amanda Whitley

    i would get a cert for dinner for mine and my husbands birthdays coming up

  24. Sarah Bailey

    I have to admit I’d be happy to receive a card to buy some dinner any time, I’m always up for trying something new. x

  25. Amanda || Growing Up Madison

    Gadgets are always a hit in my house and if that doesn’t work then dining really does. After all they say a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.

  26. Liz Mays

    It would be great to use LivingSocial for some gifts. I think a nice dinner and a golf outing would be a lot of fun.

  27. Heather Johnson

    My hubby is getting socks in his stocking this year because he is impossible to shop for.

  28. Elizabeth O.

    It’s definitely more challenging to shop for men. They are not picky at all but the things they want are sometimes too expensive, like gaming consoles or any other gadget.

  29. April Mims

    Dinner out would be the perfect gift for so many people on my list. It’s a great date night idea too.

  30. Travel Blogger

    Great ideas – my husband would love to receive a beach vacation escape!

  31. Ricci

    Food!! Food is always a great war to a man’s heart. HAHAHA

  32. Theresa

    Jason would agree with the food. You just can’t go wrong gifting him food!

  33. Crystal

    There’s only one gift left to buy, and that’s my dad. He’s so hard to shop for. I think food’s probably the right way to go. He does love to eat at fun restaurants.

  34. Bri

    I would definitely use the deal bucks on a delicious meal or two. You can’t go wrong with food.

  35. Rose Sahetapy

    These are all great ideas, but escape and dining two are the things that me and my husband share most common.

  36. cinny

    Dining at a nice place is something my husband would enjoy. Gadgets would be more up my alley though.

  37. Annemarie LeBlanc

    My husband would be delighted with a good, sumptuous meal, so a dinner date would be the best gift option for him. I will try my luck and join the giveaway.

  38. Yonca

    Looks like LivingSocial is a lifesaver for holiday season. My hubby is a big eater too!

  39. Chubskulit Rose (@chubskulit)

    I made that pasta dish last night for our dinner. Food is always a win for husbands!

  40. pickettfamily

    Dining is an awesome idea. I would use this for a restaurant meal.

  41. Fashionable Librarian

    Great list, thank God men are a lot easier to shop for

  42. littlemisscant

    We are keeping it low key this year but that’s ok! We have found that this year it’s been really hard to figure out what we want to get for each other. I have a couple of little things but nothing crazy…

  43. Jennifer

    LivingSocial sounds awesome! My husband would love a nice dinner of steak and a beer for Christmas.

  44. Crystal McWhirter-Lopez

    Greatgift guide!You can never go wrong with gadgets for my husband. I have not used Living Social before so I will have to check it out!

  45. Dawn

    This is a fantastic idea. It’s absolutely fool proof! It’s fast, and it’s full of cool stuff. Love it.

  46. blythea (Prime Beauty Blog)

    Using Living Social to find gifts is such a great idea. I’ve never thought of checking it out for others, but next time I need a gift, I definitely will.

  47. tara pittman

    I would use it on dinner. My hubby loves eating out.

  48. Stephanie Pass

    I love Living Social. My husband loves when I pick up new dining experiences for us through them.

  49. Ann Bacciaglia

    I need to check out LivingSocial. These would be great gifts for my Son.

  50. Karen Dawkins

    Right now, there are a lot of good theater tickets and Cirque de Soleil offers on LivingSocial. I’d definitely get tickets to something my hubby and I would enjoy together. We’ve actually used LivingSocial for weekend getaways many times — great money saver for those weekend escapes!

  51. Heather

    Gadgets and eating are definitely two things my man loves. Great ideas here!

  52. Amy Kelsch

    I love LivingSocial! They always have wonderful local deals for so many offerings. It makes no sense to do it any other way and pay full price.

    My husband is the hardest person in the world to shop for! Love the idea of gifting an escape!

    LivingSocial is a great website. I’ve found so many awesome things there. I actually got a gift card for my husband.

  57. [email protected]

    The man in my life asked for a police scanner. That should keep him entertained for a while.

  58. Christie

    My husband and I have been concentrating on quality time together. The experiences and dining are definitely gifts for us!

  59. katrina g

    My mom is trying to find a gift to give to my dad he’s kind of hard to shop for.

  60. Mimi

    The next time were in the US, we’ll know which site to go to.

  61. Kaylene

    This is a great gift guide. I never know what to get my husband, but the sports suggestion was great!

  62. KoKoa Media/Branding (@KoKoaMagazine)

    Guys love their gadgets anything tech or electronic or even hunting they love it. I am getting the hubs a weekend free in a nice hotel with a spa for the weekend for his present.

  63. workoutwithdi

    My husband is pretty much Inspector Gadget. We have everything there is in the house, plus things you didn’t know could even possibly exist. However we don’t do gifts at xmas and instead just buy when we find something we like. Why wait for a christmas?

  64. Ana De Jesus

    I love eating out and always like going out on dates in restaurants they are the best kind. What is your favourite cuisine?

  65. loisaltermark

    These are all great ideas. My husband is not easy to buy for!

  66. Toni | BoulderLocavore

    Great list! I love the gift of experiences, sports, trips or outings. We are overloaded with ‘stuff’ so collecting memories feels like a great choice!

    I would love to win this and use it for things for the home or the dog. Thanks for the chance to do so!

  68. Shobha George

    These are all great ideas! Should’ve read before I went Christmas Shopping!

    I love the variety of this list. My husband is always looking for new gadgets that are coming out.

  70. angie

  71. Mama to 5 BLessings

  75. Chastity Beene

    I have never used living social, will have to check it out!

  76. Chastity Beene

    My husband never asks for anything, so I usually book a trip or get him gc to restaurants – a win for both of us!

  77. Tammilee Tips

    I have given my husband John a destination gift before. Or found a way to add an extra adventure onto a trip for him as a gift. These are are all great gift ideas, I know I would love to receive an adventure!

  78. coffeewithus3jamie

    My husband can be really hard to buy for. I’m always trying to figure out what tool he doesn’t already have, and I’ll get one I’m really proud of, and like 2 days before Christmas he decides to go buy one for himself!
    I will definitely be keeping Living Social in mind for his birthday and Christmas next year. I love the idea of a gift of travel or a gym membership– those are great ideas, and not ones he’s likely to buy 2 days beforehand! lol

  79. Meagan

    Great suggestions! I love road trip escapes – they are so fun and gives us a chance to explore!

    I would use it to take my family to the local pizza place

  86. Natalia

    Totally helpful post! It’s hard gifting a guy but sadly I have no one to apply these to….yet!

  87. Jaime Nicole

    I love giving gifts that have an experience that goes with them, like an escape. I would love to plan a trip for my husband to go on that he would enjoy that maybe I wouldn’t. I think it’s important to support your significant other’s interests!

  88. Deb Clem-Buckert (@debclembuckert)

    I love Living Social. Why pay full price for anything when you don’t have to?

  89. Claudette Esterine

    the only man in my life right now is my son-in-law but I got his gift already. Maybe next year! Happy Holidays to you and yours!

  90. Angie

  92. Heather Pfingsten

    I love this list. I have been trying to get my husband to get more into doing than “stuffs” but so far it hasn’t worked. If we had a gift card from LivingSocial, he would definitely go gaga over gadgets!

  93. casavilorainteriors

  97. Miranda (myrabev)

    Sounds like a great gift guide to check out, MOH loves to eat and loves the gym too so it would be awesome to get him either of those but I think a weekend escape would be nice and romantic for both of us
