What To Buy Your Male Friend For Christmas

So you can’t buy your buddy a 42 inch flat screen plasma television. We understand. But he’ll still be your boy (or your uncle, brother, nephew, cousin, grandpa…) if you get him something else. Something more along the lines of…affordable. After all, you do have 10 other people to buy things for, so here are seven no-brainer, easy gifts to keep the Merry going…

A Video Game
What man doesn’t love sitting in front of his flat screen at home aimlessly wandering around in a virtual world? First you have to find out which game console he has. Secondly, you need to make sure you get him a game he likes: does he like thriller gamess? Mysteries? War stuff? Old school Trivia?

Cufflinks

And of course one of the easiest gifts to give is the traditional cufflink. Every man, no matter what age, can use a new pair of cufflinks. Here are some simple “everyman” cufflinks under $50. So yes, they’ll be perfect for Uncle Joe, Brother Thomas, and Grandpa Stevie.

A Poker Set

Who wouldn’t want a poker set?? Why every gamlin’ man south of Canada! Or even in Canada. And everywhere else…The point is, an at-home poker set is good for the guy who likes to have friends and family over for a game of cards and some whiskey. Or your beer-drinking college-living-in-the-dorms nephew.

Tools

Every man needs a tool set or another tool to add to his already over-grown set. The good thing about tools is they can be passed down. They don’t go out of style, last a lifetime (or two), and are the perfect nostalgic, useful, masculine holiday gift.
