Men Are Sharing The Things They "Actually Want" For Christmas, And Wow, I'm Taking Notes

Now you'll actually know what to get your boyfriend, dad, or even yourself.

We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

What a year! The holidays are finally here! And while we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time, shipping times are especially tricky this year, so we suggest shopping as early as you can.

Stock and shipping times can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. So order earlier than you think you need to and be sure to double-check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for when you need it.

We asked men in the BuzzFeed Community to tell us what they actually want for Christmas this year. Here are the must-have responses.

Not all submissions are from Community users.

1. A compact, reliable, and easy-to-use meat thermometer from Lavatools, which will genuinely make them excited every time they cook with it.

2. A subscription box from Bokksu, which offers the ultimate collection of sweet and savory treats from Japan without actually having to fly there.

3. A classic bedding set from Brooklinen, which will make them feel like an actual adult and impress anyone who visits.

4. A Hybrid Smartwatch from Fossil, which does everything a normal smartwatch does...except it actually looks nice.

5. A simple, stylish, and durable backpack from Herschel, which has so many convenient pockets and won't make them look like a little kid while wearing it.

6. A pair of Mako shorts from Rhone, which will quickly become the only workout shorts they'll ever need or want.

7. A pair of Project Rock 4 training shoes from Under Armour, which are so comfortable that they'll start wearing them even when they aren't working out.

8. A credit card multi-tool from Guardman, which is basically a handheld survival kit that will help them if they're ever stranded on a desert island or just stuck in the apartment without a can opener.

9. A container of CocoShea Revitalizing Cream from Buttah Skin, which will help to hydrate their face, soften their skin, and protect it at all costs.

10. A giant container of Whey protein powder from Promix Nutrition, which is made from the highest quality ingredients, tastes incredible, and will help to build muscle and improve recovery.

11. A stunning screenplay book about one of their favorite movies from A24, which will actually have their coffee table thanking them.

12. The world's softest pair of underwear (with pockets!) from Jambys, which will honestly change their current definition of comfort.

13. A warm pair of Inverno Gloves and Varsity Runner's Cap from Tracksmith, which will actually make you want to run outside, even if the cold weather suggests otherwise.

14. A weighted workout vest from Power WearHouse, which will help to build strength, muscle, and endurance, all without having to pay for a monthly gym membership.

15. And a weighted blanket from YNM, which will calm their body and may help to relieve some stress and anxiety.
