The 30 Best Men’s Gifts Under $100

Updated Jan 03, 2023

In the modern market, it’s hard to rationalize the price of just about anything. After all, is it truly worth paying $2,000 for something like a new laptop? Probably not, but we still do it and are more often than not happy with said purchase. Be that as it may, all these expensive, high-level items can make it a mission to find worthy gifts around this time of year. However, you should know putting a price limit on a present has nothing to do with frugality, but more so the association between you and the giftee. Going out of your way to buy something nice for a friend or colleague is considerate enough, regardless of the MSRP, and our guide to the 30 best gifts under $100 is chock-full of premium options that justify their price tag.
