8 Great Holiday Gifts For Men
Still need gifts for the men in your life? From your sweetheart to your dad, we’ve got you covered!
It’s that time of year again. The time women everywhere bite their nails wondering what to get their guy for the holidays. It starts when we’re young. We have no idea what to buy our fathers. They always say, “I don’t need anything,” which I have learned over time is just their way of trying to take the pressure off.
Truth be told, fathers do like getting gifts, but they are so difficult to buy for, so they’re often stuck with practical gifts like tube socks, underwear, ties, cologne and soap on the rope. I remember when I was about seven years old I made my brother a pair of sunglasses from red and green cellophane and black construction paper. I’m sure he really appreciated those!
Every man is different, so there’s no such thing as the perfect gift. The most important thing is that you put a little thought into it. If you really want to show the man you’re dating that you care, and even your father for that matter, here are a few awesome gift ideas that the men in your life are sure to enjoy:
1. Kindle Fire
Whether it’s the sports section, biographies or Stephen King’s latest masterpiece, most men like to read. The new Kindle Fire with full color 7” Multi-Touch display and Wifi is only $199 and was released just in time for the holidays. If that doesn’t fit your budget, or is simply too much flash, try a Kindle Touch for only $99.
2. Video Games
Sony’s Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception is the latest, hottest video game out on Playstation 3 and is only $54.99 on Amazon, and the reviews are awesome. Equal parts action movie and romantic comedy, Uncharted 3 is akin to playing a top-tier Hollywood blockbuster movie. Even girls who hate video games like watching men play this game, so it’s a win-win.
3. Star Wars Collection
Starring 1970’s heartthrob Mark Hamill (I know, what ever happened to him?) and Harrison Ford, and directed by George Lucas, the original Star Wars trilogy on Blu-ray is a collection every man will be proud to own. And, it’s only $39.99 on Amazon. If you really want to blow his mind—that is, if he’s not a purist—get him the Complete Saga for $86.99
4. Anything Apple
Even if your man is a PC user, he’ll love anything from Apple for it’s sleek design, light weight and easy-to-use technology. There’s virtually no learning curve to the legacy of products Steve Jobs inspired. Even an iTunes gift card as a stocking stuffer is a great idea for music and movie downloads, but I’d recommend the iPad 2 with 64 gigs of ram, Wifi and 3G for $829. That is, if you really want to say “I love you.”
