Okay, so first off, sorry for the lack of proper posts, my life has been sucked into the black hole of holiday madness and job hunting. Oh my gosh, I’m tired already…
Anyways, in case the world doesn’t go poof! in the following days – hehehe, my apologies to the Dec 21 doomsday prepper’s on high alert, but I find it mildly amusing 😉 – so, back to it, you may be like me, in that you are still holiday shopping, especially for some of the most difficult of the bunch – guys!
So, just as before with my Holiday Gift Guide: Easy Gifts Under $50 for Her ♥ I gathered some easy – under $50 – gift ideas for the men in your life.
1. For the man that loves books
Whether he’s into crime, mystery, history or fantasy, if he likes to read and its a topic he loves – a good book is always appreciated. Maybe get him a new one he hasn’t read or perhaps an old favorite that he’s lost somewhere between high school and a life full of moving boxes.
Featured Books Above: The Millenium (Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) Series by Stieg Larsson, Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand, On the Road by Jack Kerouac and The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien.
2. For the scent conscious guy
If he likes to smell good, cares for his place enough to own cleaning supplies, and isn’t afraid of a dash of feminine, then he might love a man-friendly scented candle to warm up his place.
Bath & Body Works have had some yummy candles lately that really do smell like men’s cologne!
Featured Candles Above: Mahogany Teakwood, Fireside and Black Pepper Bergamot.
3. For the guy in need of a little pampering
Guys often neglect their skin and especially their hands, unfortunately, so sometimes they need a little push – next thing you know – they’re hooked!
Nowadays, there are some great men’s skincare lines and around this time – gift sets galore!
Featured Items Above: Kiehl’s Men’s Refueling Kit and Helping Hands Essentials.
4. Movie/TV Junkie?
Easiest thing ever! His favorite show’s latest season or perhaps a special edition blu-ray.
Featured Item Above: The Dark Night Trilogy Blu-Ray Limited Edition (just got this exact one – thanks to my awesome brother – for $27!!)
5. The Gamer
If he is a gamer, no doubt he has been raving about the latest game out that he just has to have, but maybe just can’t afford at the moment.
If you’re unsure – get him a points/gift card for his most used game console.
Featured Games Above: Call of Duty Black Ops II and EA Sports Madden NFL 13.
6. For the workaholic and the traveler
Whether he commutes, or just has that never ending job that requires him to mainline coffee – a quality insulated travel mug that could take a beating and his favorite coffee is guaranteed to be welcome!
Featured Items Above: Starbucks Blonde Veranda Blend Whole Bean Coffee and Stainless Steel Insulated Travel Mug.
7. For the sports fanatic
No brainer – his favorite team gear!
Featured Items Above: San Antonio Spurs T-Shirt and Chicago Bear Cap.
8. For the musician
Why not opt for the unexpected, but totally awesome gift! Maybe hunt down a vintage record shop, or a bio on his favorite musician, or maybe just a nerdy novelty gift you know he would just love.
Featured Item Above: DIY Guitar Pick Punch from ThinkGeek.
9. Guy friendly Coziness
Whether he is unprepared for the cold/dry weather or maybe you just want to spruce up his winter wardobe, pick up some non-holiday guy-friendly gear.
10. And for the man who loves a good beer
If he enjoys the beer craft and is practically on his way to becoming a beer connoisseur, why not get him a new beer sampler?
This isn’t for the drunk guy in the bar, who you should NOT encourage with more beer, this is for the man that likes to buy 2 very good beers at the bar with a quality steak; and enjoys discovering new brews.
Featured Sampler Above: World Market’s Winter Brews 9-pack Seasonal Beers.
Well guys – and ladies – hopefully that helps out, in case you are still in need of a few gift ideas 😉
