Five Christmas Gift Ideas for Guys

Choosing the right Christmas gifts for guys sometimes seems like a difficult chore. The fact is that most men are not that hard to please. In fact, there are a few Christmas gift ideas for guys that are likely to satisfy men of any age or background. If you are at a loss of what to get a special guy on your list this year, here are a few suggestions.


One of the most popular Christmas gifts for men is tickets to sporting or other events they will attend anyway. For example, if your guy is a baseball fan and he happens to root for the local minor league team, he will be happy with season tickets that cover at least a half dozen of the games. Remember to buy two sets, so he can take a pal along (maybe you!)


Gadgets always rank high when it comes to gifts for guys. Just make sure the gadget actually does something useful. A whatchamacallit that lights up and spins around is good for a little amusement, but will have no lasting impact. Go for man toys that measure temperature outside, calculate tips on restaurant bills, or provide some other useful function. The gift will see more use and provide a lot more satisfaction.


Even guys who are not mechanically inclined like to get tools now and then. If your guy is a do-it-yourself type, go with the more sophisticated tools. For a man who gets by with the basics, Christmas gifts could include things like a new toolbox, a set of wrenches, some hammers, or other tools that can be used to make quick repairs around the house. The sales assistant at the local home improvement store can provide you with specific ideas for stuff that should be in any household toolbox.


Gifts in this category should strictly focus on what the man in question likes. A standby like a dress shirt and tie is fine if he wears them for work or likes to dress up for dates. If not, go with more casual clothes that he can wear anytime and anywhere, like a sweatshirt with the logo of his favorite team, a comfortable pair of running shoes, or even a good quality flannel shirt. As long as you buy something that is to his taste and not yours, you have a good chance of making him happy.


No matter what, men like to eat. That's what makes all sorts of snacks among the best Christmas gifts for guys. From huge tins of popcorn to a year's supply of beef jerky, it's hard to go wrong with food. As with the clothing, consider your guy's tastes and buy the snacks accordingly. While the gift won't be around long, he will have a lot of fun while it lasts.

The bottom line in choosing Christmas gifts for men is to keep it simple, uncomplicated, and practical. If you do, whatever gift you choose will not end up buried in a drawer or the back of the closet. Instead, it will see a lot of use, and give your father, brother, son, or buddy a lot of pleasure over the next year. And after all, isn't that the whole idea?

Very good list. For me it would just be an ugly Christmas sweater. :)
