Best Gifts for HIM: your husband, boyfriend, brother, friend or colleague

Cool Christmas Gifts For Guys boyfriend, husband or father

Men are probably the hardest species to find gifts for. Don't you agree? I've therefore tried to make things easier for you with cool and useful gifts.


Which gift will you buy for the most important men in your life. Would it be a personalized one or a non-personalized one. Getting men gifts is always tough.

My dad is happiest just having his children (and perhaps upcoming grandchild) around him. Presents are an extra. However, that doesn't stop us from racking our brains each year to come up with something. For my dad the gifts we can always fall back on are cigars, specialty beers and popular science books. Below you'll find some gift suggestions that other men are likely to be happy with.

However, I suspect even they are mostly just going to be happy to have their loved ones around them. Especially if that can happen without too many arguments and including good (doesn't have to be great) food. Christmas is the biggest festival of the year, and the time to show the men you care about them. Read on and find out which are the most popular Christmas gifts for men this year. From classic gifts to Hot Christmas Items. From lightweight laptops, camera's and camcorders, iPad bags or laptops and netbooks.

Presents Men Want

Swiss Army KnifeA gift that fits just about any lifestyle

A universal gift for man is sometimes thought to be hard to find. Not all guys like the same sorts of things, just like not all women like the same styles or activities. Something that every man can use is a utility knife to carry in his pocket. One that does more than just offer a knife blade.

There are a variety of options that can be chosen. Some offer a tiny saw, screwdriver, toothpick, nail file and so much more. He may never use some of them but the option is always there if he needs it. Besides it is just the kind of gadget that will fascinate him. It does not need batteries and he can carry and use it anywhere.Stupid.com Stocking Stuffers

HOT RC and toy gifts for men and boys

One reviewer says her husband ran to the door when his RC toy arrived. He wasn't disappointed. This is really a great toy for boys who just don't want to grow up. Instead of playing with their grown up car, he's going to be playing with this toy car in the pool, on the lawn, through the bushes too. It really handles itself well on all sorts of terrain.

Personalized Christmas Gifts For Men

Be it your partner, boyfriend, fiance, husband, father, son, grandfather, brother or cousin - you'd want to make them all feel special this Christmas. The gifts you buy for them will eventually depend on their individual taste and your shopping budget. Please take a look at the following options before you purchase Christmas gifts for important men in your life.

My view is that a not very expensive Engraved Gifts is always better than a much more expensive non-personalized one. But getting gifts personalized - specially those purchased from super-stores can be a bit tricky at times.

Does your man love sports? If yes, it would be a good idea to gift him a Personalized Christmas Gift embossed with the logo of his favorite sports team. Incase he likes reading there are lovely Personalized Bookends for professionals in different categories.

The choices are pretty wide. Personalized Photo Frames, Nameplates, Doormats, Wine Chillers, Ties, and Watches are some of the classic Christmas Gifts for men. They would never go out of fashion. There are some nice geek sites which offer really uncommon and unique gifts, try and figure out a way to get them Personalized and your Christmas Gift will be really really special.

Personalized Amber Growler.

For instance, I love the idea of this Amber Growler. Can be filled with your man's favorite beverage. This one is tailored to groomsmen, but you can give it any text you want. Great for a fishing trip!

Gifts for men 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017

As many of you know, I make a living as an online publisher. This involves writing about stuff that interests me, like the spiritual path and karma, spiritual book reviews and so on. However, to make ends meet, I also do product recommendations. 
That is: I recommend products, and you - the potential customer - get to have less of a chore finding them. It's a win-win, especially since I get a percentage for each sale. The deal is this: follow a link on any of these pages and buy something, and you - without any extra cost to you - are sponsoring me to keep on going. 

I've started out of course with spiritual gifts, but there are also calendars, laptops, iPads, Harry Potter gear etc. It's all stuff I have bought or would buy if my house room and pockets were infinite. They're not and that's OK. 

As you click through you'll notice that some of the gift pages are on this site, some are on other sites I've set up. See also my new gifts blog.
