Even if your husband claims he doesn’t want or need anything, one of these gifts (drawn mostly from our archive of useful and delightful products) will surely be appreciated. Plus, they’re all available on Amazon for your one-click convenience.

Note: The Barnes & Noble version comes with a bonus poster of Mexico’s Cave of Swallows; the second edition is currently available for preorder.

For the husband who’s more of a homebody

John Christian Men’s Hooded Fleece Robe

We get it: Sometimes you just want to spend quality time on the couch. And we can’t think of anything better to wear while lounging than this fleece bathrobe that one Amazon reviewer calls “very luxurious-feeling.”

For the husband (and spouse) who are both homebodies

DII Rustic Farmhouse Cotton Chevron Blanket Throw with Fringe

Cuddle up together under this throw blanket that’ll also look nice casually draped over the sofa.

For the husband who’s skin-care curious

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Water Face Gel Moisturizer for Dry Skin

You can’t go wrong with this lightweight moisturizer that dermatologists recommend for dry, oily, and mature skin alike.

For the husband who already follows the Dewy Dudes

Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm

Round out his routine with this eye cream recommended by Emilio Quezada, co-founder of the skincare-for-guys podcast and Instagram account. “For the fellas out there looking for a break from the tired-eyes look, the Algenist Complete Renewal Balm is worth every penny,” he says.

For the husband who’s a new dad

Kicking Horse Coffee, Dark Roast, Whole Bean

A full night’s sleep might be a thing of the past, but a strong cup of this dark-roast brew will give him the energy he needs to make it through the day. As one satisfied Amazon reviewer writes, “If you like coffee that kicks you in the butt, this is that coffee.”

For the husband who’s a cat dad

Doc & Phoebe's Cat Co. Indoor-Hunting Cat-Feeder Kit

He’ll love watching kitty “hunt” for treats hidden in these mouse-shaped toys. They’re good for feline brains, too, as veterinarians say the game helps “engage your cat’s inner predator.”

For the husband who’s a plant dad

Leiyini Plant Mister

Pretty enough to keep on display, this little mister delivers just the right amount of moisture to his more delicate plants.

For the husband who aspires to be a plant dad

Costa Farms Premium Live Indoor Snake Plant

Since it’s notoriously easy to keep alive, the snake plant — or sansevieria — is often recommended as a good starter plant. As one shop owner told us, it’s “pretty much indestructible,” so “it builds someone’s confidence and makes sure they’re gonna be set up for success.” This one even comes in a planter.

For the commuter husband

Kinto Travel Tumbler

Whether he’s making coffee at home or stopping by a café on the way to work, he’ll like how this stylish tumbler — a top pick among baristas and self-proclaimed coffee snobs — keeps his drink hot for hours.

For the husband who drinks iced coffee year round
