As a member of the LGBTQ+ community myself, I know it can be tricky to find the perfect gift for the Queer folks in your life. To help you find something special I’ve rounded up some great gift ideas for a gay man in your life.
You could, of course, get a gay man the same types of gifts you’d get any man by choosing something based off his hobbies or interests. But if you’re looking for gift ideas that a gay man will uniquely appreciate, I’ve got you covered.
Unique Gifts Ideas That Gay Men Will Appreciate
These gifts would be great for birthdays, holidays, or to celebrate Pride month. If you’re looking for wedding gifts for gay men, you can find some ideas over here: Our 20 Favorite His and His Gift Ideas.
Pride Logo Fanny Pack
My partner actually has one of these and uses it all the time, not just during June. I love the subtle use of the Pride logo so your gay friend can show off his pride in a stylish and practical way. Fill it with goodies for a fun gift idea!
Funny Gay T-Shirts
You can never have too many satirical gay t-shirts in your closet. So many options out there but I’m a big fan of annoying multiple groups at once with my outfits. If that sounds like the gay dudes in your life too then they’ll probably like this shirt.
True story: Last June I walked into a candle store with my boyfriend and was immediately shown to the Pride collection. Talk about stereotyping! Anyway, I bought the candle, and you should buy your gay friend one too.
Alpha Male Mug
End the femme gay man stereotypes with this alpha male mug. What’s more alpha than a screaming opossum? Yeah, nothing. I thought so.
Vintage Gay Liberation Poster
Replicated from ads from the 1970s, this art print pays homage to the long battle faced by gay men throughout recent history just to be able to be open about who they are. Honoring the history is a great way to acknowledge the folks who came before us, and encourage us to continue the work going forward. Plus the vintage vibes are cool too.
The Gay Agenda History Book
I’m a big fan of everyone, especially baby gays, learning more about Queer history. This book covers the touchstone moments that took us to where we are today, including iconic figures, Stonewall, the rainbow flag, and AIDS crisis.
Male Torso Statue Vase
We can all appreciate the raw masculine beauty of the sculpted men in the ancient world. This vase brings that Greek statue physique together with decorating trends to bring a great gift idea for a gay man (or anyone who appreciates this style of art).
Consider gifting it alongside something to put inside, too.
Gay Themed Books
There’s plenty of Queer focused non fiction books out there, but an increasing number of gay fiction is also being published. If he likes to read, get the gay man in your life a book with gay characters in it as a gift. If you don’t know what to buy The House in the Cerulean Sea, pictured here, is one of my favorites.
Some Gay Men’s Clothes
SO many men’s clothing options out there that are perfect for the gays in your life. I really like this romper because it’s pretty fun, but still toned down enough that you don’t stand out too much.
Pride Smart Watch Band
If he wears a smart watch and doesn’t already have one of these (but would want it) I think this would make a great “just because” gift idea for stocking stuffer for a gay man.
High End Grooming Supplies
All guys should “manscape” but we know that gay men are ahead of the curve in this department. Assuming he’s not a hair loving bear, get him something high end and luxurious to upgrade his beauty routine.
Makeup for Men
Speaking of beauty, it’s a growing trend for guys (gay and straight) to wear makeup. If he’s all in on the makeup you can get something more adventurous, but I like this neutral palette for a gay dude who wants to explore looking more polished but in a masculine way.
Welcome Homos Mat
Lots of great gay pride welcome mats out there but I really liked this one. Perfect for the homo you give it to and all his friends to feel welcome.
Straight Be Gone Soap
This would be a funny gag gift for a gay or bi male friend, gift basket filler, or stocking stuffer. YassssQueen, it reduces straightness by 69% with every wash.
Don’t make me pull out the gay card! Give this custom card as a gift for your gay friend to grant him eternal membership in the gay community. Love that you can put a picture for a fun touch.
Make America Queer Again Hat
Another election is coming up so these hats are back in style, trust me.
Geeky Pride Kitchen Accessories
Gay men aren’t limited to super stylish part animals. Some of us our geeks (*coughmecough*) and appreciate when our favorite brands, like Star Wars, show their support. If you want a small but thoughtful gay themed gift for a geeky guy, consider these kitchen accessories. Even if he’s not a big cook a great whisk and spatula always comes in handy!
Insulated Wine Tote
Any wine drinker is goign to appreciate one of these amazing insulated wine totes. They’re perfect for chilling a bottle of wine on the go and you don’t even need to take it out to pour!
Lots of great options for bag designs on their site but I had to pick the pride one because… Well you know. Gay.
Gay Men Art Prints
There are a lot of great fine art prints featuring gay men out there that would make great gifts. After you order the poster in your chosen size make sure to frame it up for a complete gift.
Rainbow Art Deco Cocktail Glasses
Although it’s not explicitly the Pride rainbow, these rainbow art deco style glasses are a gorgeous addition to any gay man’s cocktail bar. Pair with some mixers, recipes, or a great bottle of champagne for an amazing gift.
To be clear, the gay men in your life will appreciate any gift that fits their interests, everything doesn’t have to be rainbow themed! But if you want to add a little extra homo spice to your gift giving, hopefully one of these gift ideas for a gay man was the perfect find for your pal.
