The whole “Fiancé” vs. “Fiancée” thing is confusing for some folks. Time for a quick French lesson. “Fiancé” is the word you use for your male intended and “Fiancée” is the word used when speaking about a woman you’re engaged to. The extra “e” at the end makes the word feminine. Now that we’ve got that cleared up, we’re here to help you find a great holiday gift for the person you’re going to marry. If you’ve accidentally landed on the wrong page, check out our sister gift guide featuring gifts for your fiancee (with two e’s), which will be published shortly in our Shopping section.
Now we can move on. Finding the perfect gift for your perfect man is a big task, and the pressure to find that perfect something is why so many engaged couples wait until the very last minute to buy gifts for each other. Read on to find a great last minute gift for your male fiance. All of the gifts in this guide are available for rush shipping from Amazon.com, allowing you to order from home or the office, and skip the chaos at the mall.
Not sure if you can still order a gift and get it delivered before Christmas? Amazon’s shipping cutoff dates are listed here, but we’ll help you break it down. The cut-off for 2-day Prime shipping is December 22. This is when you’ll want to get your orders in if you live in a more rural area in the lower 48. If you live in one of the select cities where Amazon offers one-day shipping, you can order by December 23. And if you’re really lucky and live in a city with same-day delivery or two-hour Prime Now delivery, you can order as late as 9:30am local time on Christmas Eve and get your package later that same day. Remember that for all of these rush shipping options, you need to be ordering items with a “Prime” symbol on their product page. Only those items can be rush shipped.

1. ‘Miracle Mud: Lena Blackburne and the Secret Mud That Changed Baseball’
Trying to save up money before the wedding? If you’re keeping a tight holiday budget now so you can splash out for a really nice wedding, a book is a nice gift to consider. Books are inexpensive, but also give you an opportunity to find something that speaks to their personal tastes. If you’re shopping for a baseball fan, this fascinating book is a really cool read. Did you know there’s a very specific type of mud that gets rubbed into every MLB baseball before being used in a game? Well, there is, and this book will tell him all about it.
More into foodie culture than sports? An alternate gift we recommend is the new cookbook MUNCHIES: Late-Night Meals from the World’s Best Chefs. Both books are currently in stock and eligible for rush shipping.
Price: $9.96 (41 percent off MSRP)

While it’s not a big gift on its own, you can give it as a small gift or stocking stuffer, or bundle it with a copy of Silicon Valley</em Season 4.
