Gift shopping for the guy in your life can be stressful. Do you think he really wants another necktie or cordless drill? (Spoiler alert: He doesn’t but he’ll thank you nicely just the same.) Men like gifts that are practical, thoughtful and uncomplicated. Here are seven great gift ideas for the man in your life.
Yeti Rambler Insulated Mug
Yeti’s thick-gauge stainless steel mugs are built to last – but more importantly they’re made to hold the temperatures of your favorite beverages. They’re dishwasher-safe and sweat resistant.
PRUNUS J-01 Portable Transistor Radio
Who doesn’t love an old school transistor radio as a gift? It’s practical and a loving nod back to the days when radio ruled the world. This portable transistor radio from Prunus delivers old school nostalgia with cutting edge updates. We love the large font numbers on the front and the large tuning knob on the side . It’s compact and light enough to use in the garage or stash away in a backpack for a hike through the park. Switch bands quickly between AM, FM and SW. And rest easy knowing the built-in rechargeable battery provides up to 20 hours of listening pleasure. But the best feature of all is the Micro SD card slot that allows you to play MP3 files as well.
We’re not ones to boast, but this very set of tools recently helped us grill “The Best Pork Chops Ever.” (Trademark pending!) With a name like Cave Tools, you know this is a heavy-duty grill set that’s capable of lifting a lot of food. They’re ideal for larger size grills – they’ll keep your hands far from the heat – and the bottle opener on the extra-wide spatula comes in handy for opening a few needed beers while manning the grill. Even the most seasoned cook will appreciate the 25 barbecue recipes included with each set.
LEGO Ideas Ship in a Bottle
LEGO’s Ship in a Bottle kit has everything a miniature model ship needs, including captain’s quarters, cannons, mast, a crow’s nest, sails and – of course – a flag. Place the ship into the bottle (also built of LEGO bricks) and let the imagination soar.
Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker
Grab an egg, some meat, cheese and some bread and this breakfast sandwich maker cooks each layer to perfection. It works with English muffins, bagels and more. It’s the perfect gift for any man who feels like he’s all elbows in the kitchen or just always on the run.
Viktor Jurgen Massage Pillow
When he doesn’t have time or energy to go to a spa for a full massage, this tool is waiting at home. The pillow is designed to massage the neck, upper back, abdomen, calf and thigh area. The heating feature can be turned on and off, and the entire system is powered by an AC adapter (along with a car adapter).
RAK Magnetic Wristband
Stop dropping and losing your essential tools. This adjustable, one-size-fits-all wristband acts like a third hand while performing household chores. The wristband’s exterior is designed with ballistic nylon originally designed to protect from artillery fragments, while the interior is double layered with a soft mesh to allow for breathability.
