Tuesday Ten: Gifts for Him

Boys, boys, boys… I always find men to be the most difficult creatures to shop for. Whether it’s my dad, brother or a boyfriend, I usually like to get them something they wouldn’t typically buy for themselves, but really want. So what do men want this holiday season? I’ve put together 10 foolproof gifts that are sure to please any man…

1. The Art of Shaving. Give him the most luxurious at-home shave money can buy. If he travels a lot, get him the Carry On Kit. ($50)



2. Photojojo Lenses. If he’s into photography, this is the perfect gift. These mini pro-style lenses add some serious punch to cell phone photos. ($20)


3. Pergolina “Salut!” Flask. Perfect for the sports spectator or a chilly night, these flasks are perfect for anyone within drinking age. ($22)


4. iPod Shuffle. This is a great gift for any guy that likes to work out or listen to music while working. The compact Shuffle clips-on and the new VoiceOver feature allows you to hear the song title, playlist name and the battery status. ($49)


5. Tickets. No, I don’t mean speeding tickets (even though it would be nice if someone else could take care of them). Get him tickets to a sporting event, comedy show or a concert he’s been dying to go to. Stubhub, Ticket Master and Live Nation are all great places to shop. (Prices vary)


6. Kindle Fire. It’s not just an e-reader, but also a fully functioning tablet with apps, movies, music, games and even a web browser. ($199)


7. Kenton Sorenson Wallet. These slim leather crafted wallets are great for guys who detest the ever unpopular “bulging-wallet-pocket.” It’s the wallet’s answer to the money clip. ($85+)


8. Rein-Beer! I thought this was the cutest idea. Buy him his favorite specialty beer (or make it “rein-booze”–I hear Johnnie Walker Blue Label goes over well with the men folk) and dress it up a bit. (Prices vary)


9. A Good Book. Whether it’s a classic, a new best seller or a great coffee table book, books make for excellent man gifts. Personalize it by picking something that aligns with his interests such as music, sports, art or architecture. (Prices vary)


10. iPhone upgrade. Men are always after the latest and greatest. Why not upgrade his phone to the newest and most amazing iPhone yet? ($150+)


What’s the best gift you’ve ever given to a guy?
