Husbands are notoriously difficult to shop for, am I right? I can shop for my son and myself all day (just ask my husband!). But for some reason, I always struggle with gift ideas for my man. I know I’m not the only one, so I put together this list of five best gifts for husband’s birthday to give you some creative gift ideas.

1. JORD Wood Watch

Best Gifts for Husband's Birthday

A men’s watch had been on my mind for awhile, but I could never find the right one to give my husband. I wanted something that he could wear dressed up for the office or dressed down on the weekends. I also wanted a unique watch that would stand out on his wrist. When I found JORD wood watches, I was immediately impressed with the company’s selection. JORD offers several different styles of men’s and women’s watches made from more than 10 different woods.  I chose this watch for my husband because of its versatility. It looked like it would go with just about anything that he wore.

I think I was right, because my husband has worn his JORD wood watch every day since he got it! Wife win!

Colton picked out his own outfit to match his daddy’s: grey and white sweater, blue pants, and boots. He wants to be just like his dada. In fact, he’s even been asking for his own watch since my husband has been wearing one so often!

Many of JORD’s watches, including my husband’s, feature self-winding automatic mechanical movements. That means no more trips to the jeweler to get watch batteries replaced!

Looking at this picture makes me think maybe I do need to get a tiny watch for that sweet little boy wrist.

2. Framed Family Photo

In my experience, most guys don’t spend a lot of time decorating their office space. When we were newlyweds, I gave my husband a framed wedding photo to display in his office at work. We had professional family photos taken once our little guy came along, then my husband asked for a framed family photo for his office. He says seeing our faces brightens up his work day (he’s a keeper!). If you don’t have any recent professional family photos, use a snapshot from a vacation or even a selfie. Or, grab a tripod and your camera or smartphone and get a few shots! The memories represented in family photos are by far one of the best gifts for husband’s birthday.

3. Amazon Prime Subscription

My husband absolutely hates running errands. He can’t stand stopping to pick things up on the way home from work, nor does he like fighting weekend crowds. I really don’t blame him! We signed up for Amazon Primeir?t=mamabops05 20&l=pf4&o=1 this year and haven’t looked back. I love getting baby essentials like diapers, wipes, and food pouches delivered to our door with free 2-day shipping! In the few months we’ve had Prime, my husband has ordered everything from a stud finder to potato chips. Whenever I mention needing something, his first words are, “Did you look on Amazon?” Visit Amazon to start a free 30-day trial of Primeir?t=mamabops05 20&l=pf4&o=1 or gift a 1-year subscriptionir?t=mamabops05 20&l=pf4&o=1.

4. Romantic Dinner at Home

What man doesn’t enjoy coming home to a delicious home-cooked meal? You can find recipes for beginner to advanced cooks on Pinterest. I have lots of yummy ideas on my boards, if you need some inspiration.

5. SiriusXM Radio Subscription

For any husband who has a long commute, sits in traffic, or travels regularly, SiriusXM Radio is a lifesaver. The satellite radio service offers more than 150 different stations spanning music, news, sports, and talk. Many stations have no commercials, which is my favorite part. Plus, no more losing radio signal while traveling!

  1. These are great ideas! It is almost that time for his birthday over here and I have been trying to think of some clever ideas. A romantic night in is always a good plan!

    1. I agree! Sometimes it’s nice to just spend some time at home together!

  2. That watch is stunning. I’ve never seen one like that. I wouldn’t have thought about an Amazon prime subscription for my husband, but I definitely like that idea. I will be storing that one for September.

    1. Thanks, Becky! My husband really likes his watch. He is also an Amazon Prime addict! It really is a great gift.

  3. These are great ideas. I got hubby a pandora subscription so he has no commercials on the app when he listens and he got a smoker for Christmas this year which we’ve already used fifty times since then. Hubbys bday is in May so I have a little time to think of new ideas. I think if hubby wore a watch I’d get him the one you listed.

    I’d love it if you’d share your blog links on my mommy blog link party.

  4. My husband would definitely love the watch!! This is an awesome post because I struggle with this too!! Why are men so hard to buy for?!

    1. I think it’s because guys usually just buy what they want! Meanwhile, I have a wish list a mile long… so if I bought whatever I wanted, we’d be broke in no time. Haha! 🙂

    1. After we have photos taken, I’m terrible about actually printing them out! Holidays are always a good reminder to print them out and give some great memories as gifts.

    1. Thank you, Diana! My husband does too! 🙂

  5. I entered. What great ideas! My husband’s birthday is in June, so this is awesome!

  7. Yes!! My husband loves his, too! I was truly impressed with the quality. Your son is adorable!! Look at little GQ, he looks like he’s posing to set the tone for the shoot LOL love it. And you’re speaking my language with the framed family photo and home cooked dinner. Not kidding when I say my husband and I do that for each other pretty much every birthday haha but it really is the little things and memories I love best so it works for us ☺

    1. Thank you, Paige! Little GQ… I love it! My favorite birthdays are spent at home with my family. Nothing wrong with that! 🙂

  8. Tanyi Melvis Bechemnyo says:

    1. That’s a great gift, Tina! I’m sure he loves it! Something he can use every day.

  12. I absolutely love their watches! I just got the sandalwood and emerald one!

    1. That one is beautiful! I bet you love it!

  13. Sirius XM! What a great idea, I would never have thought of! Or the data plan to make his truck a hot spot! Thank you!!!

  14. Such great gift ideas! our husbands are so important to us and such a vital part of our families, they deserve something great 🙂

  17. I think my hubs need a Jord watch too – love mine! I do like the Sirius idea – he would love that for his new truck!

    1. I don’t have a JORD watch of my own… yet! Hopefully one day 🙂 The satellite radio is addicting. I had to give mine up when I started staying home and I still miss it!

    1. Tell me about it! Glad you liked the ideas. 🙂

  18. Love the watch! My husband’s birthday is Monday so I’m in a pinch to find something for him! Thanks for the suggestions!

  20. last birthday i got hubby tickets for his favourite comedian nearby for a year in advance and then weeks later found out he has a work course!!! dammit! ive not got around to giving him a new gift and that was in september! whoops! #twinklytuesday

    1. Oh no! My husband bought me tickets for a show one year then the performers cancelled! I never ended up getting anything else either. It’s the thought that counts, right? 🙂

  21. Love these ideas! I always find it so hard to gift anything to mu husband so this is definitely helpful! Love the pictures with the little man, so cute. That watch is really nice too. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you! My little guy is definitely a mini-me of my husband! I love photographing them together.

  22. I have read many lists for “hubby gifts” before and yours had some fresh, new ideas! Thank you! (I can always use help in that department! lol)

    1. Oh good, I’m so glad to hear that! I was trying to have some creative ideas! Thank you!

  23. I had no idea what to get my husband for his birthday this year, it was one of the hardest choices that I have ever made. I didn’t even think of getting him a Jord, I mean I love mine, so that should have been a major hint!

    1. Maybe next year, right? 🙂 I’d love to have one for myself too!

  24. I love this post! I can never figure out what to get my hubby. I usually go with a gift card. These ideas are much better than that!!

    1. I’ve given plenty of gift cards! That’s my go-to gift for most people, actually. I’m glad you liked these ideas!

  25. Bernadette Callahan says:

    Alot of great ideas. Men are usually harder to shop for. I dont know if it is limited stuff or what but I always have a hard time shopping for my husband and boy children.
    Love Jord watches, just ordered one actually.

    1. I also think men are harder to shop for! Hope you enjoy your new watch!

    1. Thank you, Holly! My husband loves it!

  26. Great ideas! I always like to get my husband a ticket out to see a sporting event or a show. In the past I have actually called his boss to ask for time off for him for a surprise gift and a getaway!

    1. That’s a great idea, Kim! What a fun surprise!

  27. My husband’s birthday was yesterday, but will definitely use this for Father’s Day!

    1. Yes, these ideas would be great for Father’s Day as well! Happy (late) birthday to your hubby!

  28. I definitely think my hubby would love the romantic dinner date at home. I will have to do that this next bday 🙂

    1. Glad you found an idea you liked, Kelley! Hope you both enjoy it!

    1. I was very impressed with the quality! 🙂

  29. This is a great list! I got a JORD watch for my hubby last year and he loves it! He gets so many compliments about the watch when ever he wears it.
