While the rest of you and your buddies are venturing closer towards proper family life, there always seems to be one of your group who’s been left behind. Often the womanizing lothario modeled after the many, many stereotypical cads of 80s and 90s television, bachelors live life fast and untethered, but that shouldn’t mean you don’t consider gifts for bachelors being greatly appreciated.
Like anyone else, it’s nice to receive a gift every once in a while, and for those loving the single and independent lifestyle, bachelor gifts can be (almost) anything. They don’t need to worry about getting rid of their partner’s stuff to make space; they don’t need to concern themselves with ruining the feel of the room. Instead, they can add to their growing collection of sometimes cool and sometimes practical stuff.
Just like Joey Tribbiani, Barney Stinson, and Al Pacino (among others) these gifts are here to show you and your bachelor buddies that being single ain’t so bad.
Gifts For Bachelors
Our first, top picks of the best gifts for bachelors around isn’t as exciting as some options on our list, but will still be no less appreciated, especially by guys who have trouble keeping track of their things.

The design allows you to fit it to your bed, sofa, or on your table, making it versatile and suitable for anywhere in the house.

Jumping to something with a little more bite, the Dopecha Dual Walled Borosilicate Tumbler Glass Gift Set is an entertaining option for those who like their glasses and kitchenware to have a bit of a novelty slant. This glass set is available in a 2 piece set and comes with intricate body designs in men, women, and mixed designs.
While we’re sure you’ll use it primarily for alcoholic beverages, it’s suitable for any beverage including wine and hot drinks such as coffee. This makes it more versatile than other glasses you may have around the house, but we understand if your bachelor wants to save them for the party. The hand-blown glass is high quality, and the 6-ounce capacity is plenty for both casual drinks with friends or potential partners or just a chilled night in front of the TV with your favorite Scotch and the best pizza in town. It also makes a perfect gift for men who love to drink.

Does anyone remember just a few years ago when floral or Hawaiian shirts were looked down upon as something worn solely by 80s movie drug dealers? Yeah us too, and these times have changed dramatically. The Virgin Crafts Hawaiian Shirt comes in 18 vibrant, dynamic colors that’ll make you look just as cool as Jim Hopper from our most recent series of Stranger Things.
There are 11 available sizes perfect for bachelors of all shapes and sizes (because you can’t put a limit on style) while the breathable fabric is quick-drying, so all it takes is one wash and a few hours to rock that look for the second night in a row. Despite what you might think it’s also high-quality fabric which ensures longevity because while they will go back out of fashion at some point, we can’t see it happening too soon.

For those of you who know bachelors who love a tipple of wine any day of the week, the Big Betty Pinot Protector is both a hilarious and ingenious invention that deserves a spot on any list for wine lovers and bachelors alike.
It’s a fantastic choice for those with home bars and boasts a nitrile leak-proof design that’s also an airtight seal to keep the wine as fresh as the day it was opened. Where other stoppers risk toppling out or dripping when laid flat, the sheathing design ensures nothing goes to waste. They are washable, and therefore reusable, and the condom design makes it an amusing – if perhaps at first a little confusing – gift option, for anybody who loves to entertain any night of the week, and even several times on weekends.

Available in both black and silver, the BeautyMood 8 Piece Casino Bottle Opener is a fantastic gift idea not only for bachelors who need to open a brew on the go but also for groomsmen and graduations and is one of those gifts that are so masculine you just feel better with it.
It comes in an Ace of Spades design that is cleverly fashioned to help crack open a cold one at parties or having a few summertime drinks in the park on a date or with friends. The stainless steel construction prevents chips and scratches, and it’s slim enough that it slides snugly into your wallet with ease. It’s suitable for both beer and soda bottles and helps you refresh on a hot and humid day. Even though it looks different to your classic bottle openers, it’s still easy to use, and unlike many unique bottle openers, the novelty doesn’t wear off.

As for our premium pick of great and unique bachelor gifts, the Lord’s Rocks Whiskey Stones Gift Set is an awesome choice for the whiskey aficionados in your life. Made from high-quality natural granite, they chill your favorite whiskey with total ease without the risk of poisoning yourself like lesser quality options might. Unlike ice, they prevent diluting your drink, which anyone who knows their whiskey understands is a big no-no.
Also included are 2 6.8-ounce whiskey glasses, perfect for when you want to try a little more (or just don’t want to get back up too soon), and it also comes complete with a sophisticated pinewood case. To protect the stones and keep them all in one place, you also get a sleek, soft velvet storage pouch. Once you’re finished, they’re easy to clean ready for next time, so just wait for them to dry and consider which bottle you want to try next.

Heading in the other direction, the PGXT Stainless Steel Survival Tool Card Kit is our choice for the best value gifts for bachelors you can find. While immediately it looks a little similar to the Ace of Spades bottle opener, this provides more versatility and is actually more of a multi-tool than anything else.
Unlike other multi-tools, though, the unique design makes it easy to carry and store in your wallet or back pocket, and despite the slim design, it boasts 11 uses for all your sudden needs. This includes a saw blade, 4-position wrench, and water compass, among others, making it ideal for both everyday use and any survival situations. You’ll also get a carry pouch to protect it from scratches, and if you don’t want to carry it in your wallet, you can hang it from your neck using the lanyard hole or carry it on your keys for even quicker access.

Fans of trash reality TV (and we mean that in the best way possible) will find a lot to love about Amy Kaufman’s Bachelor Nation: Inside the World of America’s Favorite Guilty Pleasure. At 320 pages long, it offers a comprehensive behind the scenes look at the long-running show starting from the first season and running all the way up to the most recent installment.

Available in hardcover, paperback, Kindle, and audiobook editions, this book is ideal for readers of all mediums and ensures you won’t miss out on the juicy gossip.

We know, we know, there’s been quite a bit of alcohol-related gifts so far, but the Mud Pie Cork Display Wine Box gives you the chance to turn your neat hobby (certainly not alcoholism) into a neat little game-slash-ornament. It stores both bottle tops and wine corks in His and Hers section, which we know isn’t the most bachelor thing around, but there’s nothing to say your bachelor doesn’t enjoy a bottle of wine now and then, so we wouldn’t worry about. Plus, when they get married, they’ve got a ready-made gift.
It’s free-standing but can also hang on the wall, although while this is sturdy, we’re sure you don’t want to risk being too good at the game that it gets too heavy. At 11” tall and 3” deep, there’s plenty of room for at least a few months to show off drinking prowess. Our guide to the best electric wine bottle openers features more cool products for wine lovers.

Fans of classic – if a little cheesy – 80s cinema will love the Bachelor Party / Bachelor Party 2: The Last Temptation Unrated 2 Pack to kick back and relax after a long and let’s face it the boring week of work. At 209 minutes total runtime, Friday night is sorted, so order a pizza, crack open a strong beer and enjoy.
As an unrated version, there’s a lot in there that you didn’t see at the cinema upon release, including all the juicy bits that were deemed not fit for viewing by the general public. It’s only available in the Region 1, meaning you’ll only be able to watch it in the USA and Canada, but if you’ve been planning a trip there anyway, we see nothing better to indulge in after you land, exhausted from your cross-continental flight.

Despite its connotations of being more of a family affair, the BBQ still feels very much bachelor-esque to us, probably because of the plethora of food, the lawlessness of what gets slapped on the grill, and a man in control of the barbecue as much as he’s in control of his own life. With the POLIGO 20 Piece Barbecue Grill Kit, this control is maximized to its full potential, providing everything you need for a quality barbecue whenever you want.
The kit includes spatula, tongs, BBQ fork, and skewers, among other options, while the professional-grade stainless steel ensures high quality, easy cleaning, and longevity. These tools include hanging rings for easy access and minimizing grease clogging, and the handsome aluminum case keeps everything safe between barbecue parties, shindigs, and hootenannies.

As much as the bachelor may love to have his friends over and grill up some delicious, juicy meat, we also know how much he loves to drink, and the Q-Bong Pressurized Beer Bong is a spectacular way to play catch up or just get the party started. Billed as the world’s first-ever pressurized beer bong, you’ve never seen a beer bong that’s easier to use or more effective. The one-hand design prevents spillage, while the innovative construction may be a shock to the system at first. It’s high powered for (almost) immediate results, allowing you and anyone else brave enough to chug a beer in seconds.
At 32 ounces, it’s more beer than your average pint, but it’s also collapsible and compact for easy storage (or hiding) between ragers. Sure, older bachelors may have grown out of the wild party phase, but for our younger readers, there’s no better way to get the attention of the ladies at the next college party, just don’t make a fool of yourself while using it. A cool funny gift for beer lovers.

Fans of the classic Anchorman will already recognize the Sex Panther Cologne, but unlike the movie, this option is actually fit for purpose and won’t have those around you running for cover and comparing your stench to something akin to week-old vomit sprinkled with maggots. Even though it’s not the Sex Panther (because why would you want that?) it’s still officially licensed by the Anchorman franchise, and at a 1.7 ounce capacity, it’s large enough that if you fail the first time, there’s still plenty of opportunity to wow and woo anyone you’ve got your eye on.
Offering masculine notes that are also clean and refreshing with an undercurrent of lavender and a sensual musk heart, the scent of desire is well and truly in the air, so trust in this cologne that we can assure you is not made from real panther parts, is not illegal in 9 countries, but will work 60% of the time, every time.

While scented candles were once associated with girly baths and spas, we’re happy to see that this opinion is fast being eroded away, because there’s nothing wrong with dudes comfortable in themselves filling their houses with gorgeous fragrances. The Lulu Candles Luxury Scented Soy Candles is just that, too, offering a wide variety of 26 options to choose from so you can seem like a real adult and not someone who’s struggled to make a true connection in years.
The long-lasting burn fills the house with scents of Fresh Linen, Pineapple Evergreen, Blueberry Cobbler, or if you’re feeling self-conscious, Sexy Man (we don’t make the names up) and the eco-friendly soy wax is both eco-friendly and cruelty-free, because with such horrors happening both at home and overseas, it’s nice to know some companies give a damn. Unlike other fancy candle options, these are also affordable, so if you find one you really like, there’s little chance of breaking the bank to stack away as many as possible. Choose from the 6 ounces or 9-ounce sizes depending on the size of your place.

Our final pick of the finest gifts for bachelors is also one of our favorites (as much as we’re allowed to say that). The Swag Brewery Hip Flask is the perfect novelty hip flask for discreet drinking wherever you feel you need to refresh and comes with a high-quality construction that eliminates leaks and spills to ensure your finest brown nectar isn’t wasted.
The 6-ounce capacity is large enough to get you through a boring event when you’d rather be doing literally anything else, but where it really earns its quality is the 6 different motifs engraved onto the front. These include TEARS OF MY ENEMIES, LIQUID PATIENCE, and EMERGENCY DRINKING WATER to keep suspicions to a minimum. While you’ll likely use it more for liquor, it’s suitable for all beverages, so if you want to carry a Panda Pop around with you, then you’ll be able to, with everyone else none the wiser.
