The holidays are here. You’re cruising through gifts for your girl friends – you know exactly what they want. Then you come to the guys on your list and suddenly, you draw a blank.
Don’t worry. Once you know what they generally like, it’s pretty easy to find a great gift.
Though all guys can’t be lumped into the same category, most might enjoy (even if they already own one) an LED flashlight, pocketknife, bottle of cologne, wool socks or Ice Armor gloves (for those who love the wintery outdoors).
If you want to up the ante, buy him tickets to his favorite sporting event or a smoker grill so he can prepare his favorite meals with flare.
For you married ladies, something intangible could make this Christmas special. Give him a free pass for a “guys’ night out” or rent a hotel room in a place you both want to go for a surprise weekend getaway.
If all else fails, it’s hard to go wrong with gift cards. Try cards from electronic, hardware, sporting goods or home improvement stores. It all depends on your guy. You know him best, so you’ll know what kind of gift card he’d appreciate.
