Men aren’t hard to gift. I think choosing a unique gift for any man can be easy if we think about THAT man. We think it’s hard because women are hard to please. Just look at all it took to get an eligible Prince to propose marriage….a simple lemon roasted chicken. Men are easy to please. Most men are practical in their own way, no matter how old. Whatever they do, whatever they like, they want it to work for them without hassle. Unless your guys wear ties everyday, please don’t buy just any ole’ tie this year. Even politicians, as we have learned, spend parts of their day wearing underwear only. You wouldn’t want that tie you buy to end up under the desk chair wheels.
AOL published a list of 50 gift ideas for men. Ah…some are good. Again, it all depends on the guy and it definitely depends on his age. Within the AOL list are items like wallets, ties, flasks, draft beer kits….all the typical man stuff. Most of the men in my life wouldn’t need any of that. They have wallets, ties they don’t wear and flasks that get dusty from non use. The items on the list range in price from the teens to over $600. High Heels combed the list and found a few ideas, based on the lifestyle of my guy.
He has one of these multi-tool kits on his key ring and he uses it often
He loves to kick back so lounge pants are perfect, especially on game day
Hot sunglasses for any age man, especially if they like looking “hot” or if they think they are hot.
One of the teenage fashionistas in our family told us the “tech” gloves we bought for her were the “best gift ever” because she could wear them in cold weather and still use her cell phone
Every man is different but everything above is practical. The holidays are annoying enough for these baby boomers that we don’t spend a lot of money on gifts. Earlier this week, millionaire entrepreneur Daymond John told a talk show host that it’s not financially sound to spend a fortune on gifts for the holidays.
The founder of the highly successful clothing label, FUBU, reminded viewers that personal gifts, often the most appreciated, may cost under $10. That gave me an idea for a couple of teenagers in our lives.
Check out the list below. There may be something that fits your bill.©
