A Gift Guide For Him

November 30th, 2009 No Comments

The men in my life are hard to shop for! Usually my struggle is buying what I know he wants versus what I want :)  So this list covers both.

Cheap and easy (around $50 or less):

  • NCAA branding iron $30 – everything at a tailgate should be branded with school spirit
  • Fold up seat/cooler $55 – because he always ends up sitting on the cooler
  • Damages – Season 1 and 2 – if he’s not already eagerly awaiting season 3. This is the best suspenseful drama on tv right now.
  • For your military man – Fragrances (that I’ve never smelled) in patriotic bottles, proceeds go to the respective line of service and the Veteran’s Administration
  • Beer Holster $35 –  your man should never be without his beer, no matter what he’s doing
  • Framed Memorable Moment – which is actually priceless
  • Sexy socks – I love a guy in argyles or striped socks.  He won’t like getting these until he gets complimented by admirers.
  • An educated drinking buddy, Gary V – guys love wine and showing off.  Purchase a month from the Gary V Wine Club (starts at $30) so you giving him not only delicious wine, but also a fun way to learn about it.  He’ll bust out the skills he picks up later.

Under $100:

A little bit more:

  • A good watch you won’t have to pay off – Everyone is really into Nixon ($400+) right now, but I am loving Brera ($495+).
  • Frye boots ($200+) – a classic that you’ll both love
  • Tow Hitch for the tv $200 – so he will never miss a game while tailgating or fishing
  • Gas guzzling lawnmower blender $450 – because it’s just f-ing cool
  • 5 classes at Soul Cycle $160 – a new type of workout that will kick his ass
  • Lessons: surfing, golfing, tennis, wine, boxing, squash
  • Stylish jacket that goes with everything from Five Four (around $150)
  • Kodak Zi8 Pocket Video Camera
  • A box of good cigars (Cubans)
  • Duffle bag by Shades of Greige $132 – so he’s hauling all of his crap in style
  • Cool pair of sunnies – men have a hard time picking these out themselves

Splurge!

  • Surround Sound system – he doesn’t actually NEED it, but it’s just one of those things they all think they NEED
  • Alienware 15x Dell laptop – the most powerful 15” gaming laptop
  • Custom cufflinks – Eleven Forty makes links of anything you want (his dog, you, you name it).  He’ll wear them as a side profile, then they come together to make a 3D bust.  Very cool! Contact William to purchase.

Helpful Websites:

  • XperienceDays.com – like Make-A-Wish for men – race car driving, flying lessons, sky diving…
  • Lolligift.com – to pool funds and splurge for your man

Not exciting, but I bet he wouldn’t say no to:

  • A car payment
  • Amex or Visa gift card
  • Gas card
