Christmas Gifts for Guys Under $50

If there's anything CB and I do well it's treating ourselves. Ok, so we don't buy many big ticket items, but we spend more than our share year round on food and drink. In all honesty, is there anything better to spend your money on?? So when it comes to Christmas, we're a little boring. We would rather set a limit of $50 or $100 and get each other several small things that were thoughtfully selected. Today I'm teaming up with my friends at Walgreens and Gillette to bring you tons of Christmas gift ideas for guys that are all under $50!

What I failed to think about when I wrote this post is CB reading it, whoopsies.
Oh well, these will all still work great for the man in your life!

1. Gillette Fusion ProShield Razor from Walgreens 

Let's first talk about the practical gift that every man will use, that you should go ahead and grab right away. It's a no brainer, and thanks to Walgreens I have a great deal for you. This holiday season, Gillette has released their Limited Edition Gift Packs - the Fusion ProShield razor, which features a premium sleek design paired with a high-quality razor and is just $19.99.

It's the first time a Gillette razor has included a matte black handle, which looks great paired with the chrome razor stand. The Fusion ProShield also includes an all-black FlexBall feature giving it a monochromatic look. This particular gift pack comes with one 5-bladed Fusion ProShield cartridge.

BOGO50 (Buy one, get another one 50% off) on Gillette Limited Edition gift packs from 11/18 to 11/24. Plus take $2 off Gillette Limited Edition gift packs from 12/16 to 12/22.

You can find these coupons in the Sunday paper or on the coupons section of or via the Walgreens app.

If you're reading this too late and you've missed the BOGO50 offer, Gillette is also offering $2 off from 12/16 to 12/22 at Walgreens. You may also find that coupon in your Sunday paper, or on the coupons section of or the Walgreens app.

Veenie and Gee helped me wrap it up for CB!
Editor’s note * they mostly just got dog hair everywhere though. Very little wrapping was accomplished.

CB asks for a Calendar for his office every year. We do so many fun things that it's always a blast to revisit our activities from the past year. I didn't make him one last year and I still hear about it constantly. Make a calendar for your S.O. or family or friends, it's the gift that keeps on giving.

Turn your electronics on or off from anywhere using a smartphone app! This plug works with Alexa and Google Assistant as well. You should probably pick one up for yourself too so you never forget to leave your flat iron on all day (which I do constantly).

We love going to local breweries in Dallas (there are about a million of them), but why not try your hand at an at home beer making kit. Plus, it's an activity you can do together. If IPAs aren't your thing (Y THO) there are other flavors as well!

This is so stupid and I love it. Yes it's a gag gift but it would bring me great joy to walk into someone's office and see this tube man going wild in my presence. Great gift, solid stocking stuffer. OR, buy it for your white elephant exchange!

People buy drones all the time and don't consider the practice it will take to learn to fly it. What if you're terrible? What if you end up never taking the drone out? Rather than going all in on a major drone purchase, try this one for under $40 that even TAKES PICTURES! It has a 7 minute flight time, just enough to see if the whole DRONE LIFE is for you or not!

Let me lead with saying this has a lifespan of over 1,000 charging cycles!!! WHAT! We have a portable external battery that we always forget to charge up, and it usually only gives me about 75% battery. This bad boy can charge via the wall or from solar power. Buy one for you and your mans.

Who needs TopGolf when you can have a collapsible chipping game in your backyard! Great for any golfer, I know CB would love this. He probably would play with tennis balls and make Veenie go get the ones he misses.

Shut up and take my money. Pizza themed socks that come shaped as a pizza in a pizza box?!?!!? What a time to be alive.

Ugly Christmas sweater party victory here you guys come. I'd probably gift this one a bit earlier, so it can be enjoyed throughout this magical season! Christmas is better with a Jack Russell terrier! LOLOLOLOL

So hopefully these suggestions helped pave the way for the best Christmas giving season ever. Have you found anything your man has gone nuts over for a Christmas gift? Do you plan on getting any of these??

Thank you to Gillette and Walgreens for sponsoring this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own. #GillettePartner
