Shopping for gifts is always personal, no matter who you're shopping for. That being said, there are certain things that most guys in their 20s would appreciate. Having graduated college or started working and living on their own, 20-something guys have needs and wants that can be met through thoughtful gifts.


A lot of guys in their 20s have free time to fill, but they aren't bringing in enough income to spend it on music concerts, comedy clubs, or other forms of entertainment. Movies are a great way to spend downtime without burning through cash. Twenty-something guys are especially fond of silly, guy-humour movies like "Caddyshack," "Animal House," "Dodgeball," and many others. Most guys in their 20s would appreciate such a gift, especially if the giver is willing to watch the movies with them.

Grooming Items

As with anyone, guys go through grooming items fairly quickly and appreciate having them restocked by others. Of special importance is high-quality shaving equipment, which is a need for most men. Another good suggestion, from, is a good set of towels and washcloths. Guys in their 20s also appreciate nice cologne or body spray, although many can't afford to get it themselves. Avoid fragrances that are too sweet or fruity.


Almost all guys have their favourite toys. It can be anything---cars, bicycles, fireworks, stamp collections or whatever the guy in particular is interested in. A certain guy might love percussion instruments and enjoy getting exotic drums as gifts. Based on what you know about a guy's personal tastes, invest in something to help enhance his adult toy collection. Collector's items can be a winner for guys who follow sports, movies, or who keep a prized collection.

Underwear and Socks

As a rule, guys tend to be harder on clothes than women, and they go through underwear and socks fairly quickly. Whether they want to admit it or not, a lot of guys need new underwear and socks, which makes this gift idea both relatively inexpensive and practical.
