Shopping for men is notoriously difficult, but it doesn't have to be! There are so many options out there that make a perfect gift for the food-loving guy in your life. Surprise him with fun cookware, hot sauce or a basket of snacks — either way, we have you covered with the list below.

If you’ve ever watched Sean Evans and his countless celebrity guests struggle to finish 10 hot wings, which get increasingly hotter, and thought, "I can do that!" — well, here’s your chance. Prepare to be humbled by the intense flavors of these three sauces from season 10. If you’re feeling brave, you can upgrade to the Hot Ones Season 10 Heat Pack. And, don’t worry, Da Bomb isn’t included.

Everyone needs a good bottle opener (is there anything worse than being caught without one?), and we think this one is a perfect option for the sophisticated man in your life. For anyone looking to upgrade their barware, this is the gift for them.

What guy doesn’t crave a delicious, juicy steak for dinner? By giving the gift of Omaha Steaks (this set particularly includes two filet mignons, two top sirloins, two boneless pork chops and four potatoes au gratin), you get the luxury of gifting date night on your own terms.

Fifteen assorted herbs and spices await whoever receives this gourmet set. Perfect for the aspiring chef in your life, this gift gives them the opportunity to experiment with za’atar, herbs de Provence, smoked paprika and more.


Say goodbye to awkwardly fumbling between your drink and your cigar — this handy glass does all the heavy lifting for you. Simply place your cigar in the designated crevice while you sip on your Old Fashioned Whiskey on the rocks.


If the gentlemen on your shopping list love to spend time in the kitchen, get them a gift that will stay with them for years. These maple cutting boards by John Boos are a favorite at Food Network thanks to the built-in juice moat and warp-resilient wood.

A bunch of your favorite guy’s grilling and snacking essentials are bundled up into this basket by Lucy’s Market.


Know a guy who loves pepperoni pizza? Gift him a bottle of Mike's Hot Honey and include a tip about drizzling some over his next slice. His life will be changed forever.

Fill up the four mini pilsner glasses with your favorite brew while enjoying the perfectly balanced salty and sweet beer nuts. It’s the perfect way for the guy in your life to sit back, have a snack and relax.

Keep your favorite beer fresh and carbonated for up to two weeks in this stainless steel growler. It's perfect to bring to a game day tailgate or just enjoy the aesthetically pleasing beer container in the comfort of your own home. Either way, this gift will be a hit.

Bring your drinks to the dark side with Star Wars inspired glasses and custom ice cubes to match. You can even gift them to your father this year.

Do you have fond memories of going to baseball games with your dad growing up? Show him you appreciate those memories with this set of glasses donning his favorite team’s stadium and logo.


The joy your favorite guy gets from grilling in the summer can now be had year-round with this nonstick indoor grilling plate, which makes mid-winter burgers and steaks no longer a fantasy!


Give the gift of flavor with this four pack of sauces including Roasted Garlic Peanut Sauce, Maple Chipotle Grille Sauce, Vidalia Onion Fig Sauce and Sesame Ginger Teriyaki Sauce.

Think of this barbecue bag as your catch-all tool kit for grilling. It’s got everything the griller in your life will need to whip up perfect patties and drool-worthy steaks all summer long.
