Shopping for that perfect gift for every single person on your list is part of the fun of the holidays. We all know how great it feels to absolutely nail a holiday present for a loved one, be it a family member, partner, or even a good friend. While some people on your list may be easier to shop for than others, the perfect gift is out there for everyone, including any men in your life who wear big and tall sizes.
Before diving into some of the best holiday gifts, for big and tall men, you want to be sure that this is the right sizing for the guy in question. If it’s someone you regularly shop for and with, you likely already know if they wear big and tall sizes. If you’re not positive, though, a good rule of thumb is that guys 6’2’’ or taller with wider chest, hips, and a waist will find their perfect fits with big and tall sizing.
Now that you’ve determined that the man you’re shopping for has this type of build, you’ll be glad to know that we’ve done the rest of the work for you by picking out the top holiday gifts he’ll absolutely adore. Read on for suggestions and inspiration that’ll leave you feeling excited to get into the gift-giving mode.
The holidays land right at peak sweater weather time, so the first gift ideas on our list are all about sweaters. Sweaters are also great gift ideas for really anyone on your list because they’re seasonally on-point, versatile, and as practical as they are luxurious.
Big and tall men, in particular, will definitely appreciate receiving a sweater that fits the way it should. So, opt for a big and tall sweater in a style you think he’ll love. One option here is a lighthouse cable waffle crewneck sweater in a universally (and super) flattering color like royal blue. This sweater will provide as much comfort as it does style, so he’s going to get a ton of use out of it. Or, opt for a practical and comfy yet super style print Bedford rib quarter-zip sweater in a fun print like navy and black plaid, or a classic neutral dark clary herringbone that he can wear with anything in his closet.
Another style that makes for great gifts is big and tall men’s v-neck sweaters . The V neckline is a comfortable and flattering option for men’s sweaters and is super versatile since they can be worn as-is or as a top layer over a T-shirt or collared dress shirt. Look for a fine-gauge cashmere V-neck sweater in a shade like navy or dark red for a luxurious gift that'll make any guy feel dapper. Opt for a classic fit fine gauge Supima cotton V-neck sweater in cloudy blue or willow green for an option that's just as nice but also super easy care.
Complete your sweater gift with a complimentary pair of dress socks, or lean into the comfy vibe with some specialty hot cocoa mix.
Speaking of the comfy vibe, another perfect route for holiday gifts is to opt for all things cozy. That’s a huge part of what the holidays are about, after all!
Big and tall fleece jackets are a great way to give the gift of cozy to any guy on your list, especially for the big and tall guy whose all about that cottagecore style. A fleece snap neck pullover top in seafoam teal plaid, or a navy mountain scene print are two options that will keep him warm all season long, all while adding major style points with a perfectly on-trend feel. Or, opt for a long-sleeve sherpa crewneck sweatshirt in a rich caramel or festive ivory and black Fairisle print for the man on your list who loves being cozy as much as he loves looking his absolute best (who doesn’t want both, really?!).
Sticking with the cozy theme, men’s slippers are another winning gift idea for big and tall men. Go with festive cabin slipper socks in a classic red and black plaid or a monogrammed pair of suede leather moccasin slippers with faux fur lining. We have a strong suspicion that as soon as he unwraps a pair of slippers or slipper socks, he’ll never want to take them off. Complete your cozy gift with a personalized throw blanket like a plush fleece solid throw-in a rich steel shade or deep-sea navy. He’ll love having this on-hand for lazy Sundays and TV binges for years to come.
From sweaters that fit like a glove to slippers that’ll provide cloudlike comfort, any big and tall guy on your holiday shopping list will absolutely love opening up one of these gifts!
