Picking out a great gift for your husband is easy if he happens to need something (think: a new phone or grooming tools) or if he's been dropping hints about the latest gadget or video game. But what happens when you need a gift for the husband who has everything already? If he's been keeping schtum about what he wants (and all of his favorite things are in good shape), it's totally normal to feel stumped. Lucky for you, we're pretty good at coming up with out-of-the-box ideas. Below, we're sharing all the best gifts for the husband who has everything that'll work for any occasion—Christmas, his birthday, and your anniversary included.
Want a little extra advice before you get started? In order to find the perfect gift for your spouse, give a little thought to their daily routine. Does he start each day with a hot cup of joe? In that case, a gourmet coffee subscription is the perfect companion to his shiny coffee machine. Are his Sunday mornings spent on the golf course? While he might have plenty of golf balls and clubs lying around, he probably doesn't have his own portable putting green. When it comes to the husband who has everything, focus on how you can improve or add to the things he already has (and loves).

For the Guy Who's Always on His Feet
Your hubby may already have a stylish pair of boots. In fact, he might even have a cozy pair of slippers too—but does he have anything that can do both? These cleverly designed boots can withstand a little outdoor wear thanks to the sturdy rubber sole, but they boast all the comfort of a standard slipper. Basically, it means your spouse can pop to the shop (or run down the street after the delivery person) without having to overthink his footwear. (And we're not the only ones who think it's pretty genius—just check out those five-star reviews.)

How about giving your S.O. the gift of a cool new skill? Sign your hubby up for a virtual mixology class where he'll learn how to make two amazing smoked cocktails from a highly skilled Brooklyn-based bartender. You can gift the activity on its own or throw in his very own smoking cloche. (And if making cocktails isn't really his thing, there are plenty of other unique experiences to choose from.)

For the Handyman
Wondering what to get your husband for Christmas or Hanukkah? While a hubby who seemingly has everything probably already owns a pair of gloves, we bet he doesn't own this pair. These aren't just any old mittens. They're wax-coated leather gloves with a breathable, waterproof membrane. They're pretty much a winter staple no matter what he's working on outdoors. Chopping firewood? Building a snowman? It's all a whole lot easier with these luxurious, hard-wearing gloves.

For the Guy Who Likes Cool Gadgets
Is your husband always on the lookout for devices that'll add to his everyday life?

Let us introduce you to this genius desk lamp designed to elevate his mood, improve his focus, boost his energy, and promote better sleep. It's all down to the lamp's natural, UV-free light that brings the benefits of the outside in.

For the Guy Who Deserves a Getaway
Sometimes the best gift for the husband who has everything is something that can't be decorated with wrapping paper and ribbons. Non-tangible presents like experiences are always appreciated by those who have all the material items they need. Plus, taking the time to plan a trip shows you put a little extra thought and dedication into pulling off the perfect birthday or holiday gift. Getaway is one of our favorite places to plan romantic mini breaks.

Because of societal constraints, men don't often have many comfortable, safe places they can express emotions. You are your man's safe place and he needs to know that when he's ready to open up fully, you'll be understanding and open.
