Shopping for the special men in your life can be a pretty daunting task if they haven’t specifically outlined what kind of gifts they want, but the key is to not over-think it. The best gifts are usually things he needs but is too stubborn to buy for himself or things he’ll end up using every day.

His feet will thank you for keeping them cozy all winter long in these socks. And for every pair purchased, Bombas will donate a pair to someone in need.

The Echo Show is my personal favorite Echo because of its crisp HD display. Like every other Echo, it uses Alexa to accomplish any number of tasks, from answering questions to reordering supplies on Amazon.
