19 Items Guys Should Be Required To Own

You owe it to yourself.

Posted on

1. A welcome mat to greet your guests and dry their feet.

Amazon / Via

Welcome mats separate the amateurs from the pros. Have one at your door to stand out and also ensure that your floor stays a bit cleaner.

Price: $14.95


2. A coffee pot that doesn't use pods of any kind.

Amazon / Via

Coffee from a pod isn't nearly as tasty as fresh brewed coffee, get something like this french press to take your taste buds up a notch.

Price: $21.97

3. A damn good cast-iron skillet to cook everything in.


You can literally cook anything in here. It's perfect for when cooking for yourself but can also take the heat when making meals for multiple people.

Price: $15.99


9. WD-40, because those creaks in the door shouldn't last.

Amazon / Via

Whether it's a creaky door, window, bedframe or anything else that can make awkward noises, stop them fast with this stuff.

Price: $8

10. A grooming kit because nobody wants nasty nails.

Amazon / Via

You shouldn't use the same clippers to trim your toenails and fingernails, also you need a pair of good tweezers in the life. The rest of these tools are just added benefits you'll thank yourself for learning how to use.

Price: $7.99


12. A simple gray hoodie that you can wear with anything.

Uniqlo / Via

These things are super versatile, and every wardrobe needs one. Wear it to work, the gym, while running errands, around the house while it's cool. Pretty much anywhere with anything.

Price: $29.90

13. A knit tie to class up your look but still maintain a relaxed feel.

The Tie Bar / Via

Knit ties are unique because they definitely make your outfit more formal but still give you a casual feel.

Price: $25

16. While we're at it, definitely make sure you have an extra set of sheets (stay away from black sheets if you can, because duh).

Amazon / Via

You don't have to spend an arm and a leg, but the more you invest, the better your sleep will be.

Price: $27.99


19. And kettlebell for when you can't manage to make it to the gym.

Amazon / Via

Look up some videos on YouTube of quick and easy workouts you can do at home during commercial breaks of your favorite show.

Price: $26.99 (for 5 lbs, price depends on weight)
