I’m thinking of something….
1. Heartfelt Card
There’s nothing like an honest heartfelt card around the holidays. Just make sure it’s not too honest—you don’t want to go bringing up old tiffs and trysts with Papa Bear now. Tell him how much you appreciate him, how invaluable he is, and include a little personal memory that only you would remember.
2. Swiss Army Knife
Every man can use a new pocket knife. Think of the one dad already owns? Crusty old thing. Throw it out! Get him a new one! Of course one of the most trusted brands is The Swiss Army Knife and even comes with the little plastic toothpick for those unsightly “gum food”. Get the guy something handy.
Think about it—it’s quite simply a no brainer. He can wear them to work, golfing, formal dinners, meetings, at your child’s christening and graduation…they will come in handy very soon. We have a range of moderately priced cufflinks to fit your budget and Dad’s style (or lack there of) and we have a cufflink set for literally every Dad personality out there. Choose from Homer Simpson Cufflinks, Navy Cufflinks, or Hand Painted Animal Cufflinks
Duh. Every year. He needs another tie.
4. New Tool
Right before the holidays, tool kits and individual tools normally go on sale. Keep an eye out on the Sunday ads, online sales, free shipping deals, etc. A simple drill, or 10-in-1 kind of tool is always good.
….Appealing to the Male Ego’s love of sound and projection
6. Surround Sound System for Home
Let’s face it—dad’s hearing is going a little haywire these days. (Think: “What? What?? What?? I can’t hear you! Turn up the TV!). Yes, his ears are going bad. But don’t worry! He can still enjoy his Monday night football and episodes of David Letterman with a surround sound system. And he doesn’t need to have a giant plasma fancy pants TV to go with it, you can simply use it with almost any set you already own. (Not sure about the rabbit ear kind of TV though…)
7. Tickets to a sports game in the New Year
What’s his favorite? Baseball? Soccer? Hockey? Pre-pay for tickets or give him an IOU for his favorite team’s sporting event.
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?
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.
At Cufflinksman we have this season’s hottest ties for men. With almost every color in the rainbow, we have designer Daniel Dolce Silk Italian ties for an affordable price. Most of them are under $50 and sure to please: Black Polka Dot Tie, Golden Rod Tie, and more…
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.
Bags from Duluth Trading Company
High end and moderate end, Duluth Trading Company gives us yet another impeccably made bag. The AWOL bag may not be cheap, but they use exquisite leather and precise stitching, ensuring this bag will last as long as your tool set.
And when all else fails, or even if it doesn’t, get your favorite bro some music. Give the gift of music “new-style” via itunes gift card or set him up with some vintage records from his favorite band, a vintage mix tape, or simply burn him a CD of your favorite tracks.
