Does the guy you’re shopping for love trying new recipes and exploring new flavors? Help him explore making dumplings—a notoriously intimidating food!--with this soup dumpling kit.
In China, these dumplings are called Xiaolongbao, and they are filled with deliciously rich vegetable or pork broth. Real talk: They are the perfect meal when there’s a little nip in the air. Or, any time really. But they need a very specific basket in order to be made from hand, and this kit gives your loved one everything they need to try it for the first time.

The glasses come in sets of two, featuring the team’s two colors. At the bottom of every glass is the team’s logo, celebrating a perfectly finished beer. They’re also dishwasher safe, which is a nice bonus. Check out the matching whiskey glasses, too.

It’s always fun to go all out on a picnic. But sometimes, a dude doesn’t want to make a big fuss while enjoying a beer outside with a buddy. Help them out with small but hugely functional outdoor collapsible beer table. With a bottle opener build in on the side, this table holds two bottles and a small dish for snacks, which is really all anyone needs.

You can never, ever go wrong with a nice set of wine glasses. In the haste to buy things for the kitchen, people buy cookware and dish sets and all the cool tools that a home cook needs to be really elevate their game to kitchen pro. But something simple and classic like nice wine glasses get oftentimes is overlooked.
Whether the man you’re shopping for is single or happily spoken for, this gift will definitely help him class up his act in the kitchen and impress whoever he’s trying to impress. These are the set of red wine glasses (you might have to tell him—yes, there are different glasses for different types of wine!) but check out the white wine glasses, too.
It’s true that we created an entire list of cookbooks to choose from. But many men of a certain age have a lot of love or respect for Snoop Dogg, so it only makes sense to specifically include his delightful cookbook here.
Whether they’re just fascinated by his surprising friendship with Martha Stewart or they genuinely want to know what the Boss Dog cooks, they’ll love this book. It’s full of Snoop Dogg’s 50 top recipes, including Baked Mac and Cheese, Fried Bologna Sandwiches, Bow Wow Brownies and so much more. It ranges from the high life—Lobster Thermidor—to the munchies—Starburst—and finishes off with the classic gin and juice.
Know a guy in college or someone going soon? Help him make his dorm the cool place to hang out with this hilarious and comfy pizza-shaped bean bag chair. We all know he’s already only eating pizza while he’s there, so something in his dorm might as well match, right? This bean bag chair has to be spot-cleaned, so maybe spray it with some Scotchgard to help him out before wrapping it up, but this one’s sure to be a hit.
If pepperoni pizza isn’t really up his alley, check out Urban Outfitters’ other food-shaped furniture. Because yes, apparently this is a thing for college kids.
