What Do You Buy that Special Guy on your Holiday Shopping List?

We’re counting down the shopping days and we’re down to the 12 Days Before Christmas.  If’ you’re like me, you have most of the easy shopping done, but now you have to think of something unique for that special guy in your life.  I was discussing this dilemma with a co-worker yesterday and we came up with a few ideas.  Whether it’s your husband, boyfriend, dad or brother, if you are also searching for the perfect “guy” gift, some of the first questions to ask are, “What are his hobbies?  What consumes his free time?”  Many of these items can be purchased on line, some even offer free shipping for the holidays.

Here are a few suggestions:

  • For the busy father: A special outing for just the two of you.  Dinner at a special restaurant, night at a bed and breakfast, tickets to a sporting event or concert.  Just make sure it’s about him and not about you.
  • Is he an outdoor enthusiast? A piece of equipment or clothing that he needs for his hobby is usually well received- ask one of his buddies to get ideas for a specific item.
  • Someone who likes to cook and entertain?  I happen to know my husband is getting BBQ rubs and some other specialty cooking ingredients to use with his Green Egg.  These make great stocking stuffers, plus the more he cooks, the less time I spend in the kitchen.
  • Is your guy into working on engines? The BenchtopPRO parts washer cleans dirty, greasy parts and is safe for his hands.  No sink or drain in the garage – no problem, The BenchtopPro is basically a self-cleaning sink.
  • Check Groupons for discounted adventures, such as a Nascar experience or a parachute jump.
  • Is your guy attached to his smartphone but has to run outside or to a window to make or receive a call?  A zBoost SOHO cell phone signal booster can be the solution and a considerate gift for your special guy.
These are just a few ideas we came up with over lunch.  Please share your best guys gift ideas in the comments section.
