The Best Gifts Under $75 For The New Man In Your Life

Let’s be honest, shopping for someone new is tough. You don’t know as much about them — their passions, peccadilloes, and pet peeves. Then there’s the matter of price. You don’t want to be too thirsty but also don’t want to seem cheap. Accessories work; gift cards definitely don’t.

Shit, now I’m questioning the presents I bought for my new guy. BRB, I need to check some return policies.

Anyway, I’ve been doing my fair share of research to find affordable gifts that any man would actually use. If you’re in need of some affordable holiday gift ideas, check out my guide below — the best gifts under $75 for the new man in your life.

Booze-Infused Jerkygram

Mens Gift Guide 2021
Booze-Infused Jerkygram

Price: $49.99

Company Line:

Beef jerky and alcohol are the twin pillars of human sustenance, which is why our underground survival bunker is lined floor to ceiling with the two…exclusively. But during our most recent nuclear explosion-proof test, shockwaves thrashed through the bunker walls, flipping beer barrels and overturning supply shelves like a mild Gary Busey outburst.

The result was a bunker full of beer-soaked beef jerky that, once we removed the wooden splinters, was absolutely delicious.

Why It’s a Great Gift:

This quirky gift combines stereotypical male passion points — beer! booze! meat! — into the ultimate protein-packed, booze-infused snack. This gift pack includes dark ale jerky, wild boar honey, bourbon jerky, whiskey sausage sticks, and Oregon cabernet jerky.

That’s a whole lot of flavor conveniently packaged for on-the-go snacking.

Bottom Line:

Whether he’s an avid foodie or he can’t get enough craft beer, this Booze-Infused Jerkygram will win over his heart and stomach.
