    Tools. Men can never get enough tools. It doesn’t matter whether they already have it. If one is good, then five or six are even better.

    The men in my life have always been big on things that are practical. Coffee and tea are always great gifts, and my kids love to pick out socks for their dad.

    This reminds me of when I was a kid and always bought my grandpa new handkerchiefs or a cigar. He loved those gifts. The good ole days…

    I like to get the men in my life something that goes along with a hobby of theirs. Something that makes it more enjoyable to do that hobby or a gift card to get them what they need to work on the hobby.

    Again, I don’t have a go-to gift because it really depends on what the man likes.

    The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach…so, food or something related. Other hits are T shirt with saying that reflects themselves or their interests. Or practical clothing.

    I made my husband some pajamas (button-up shirt +pants) in a fabric that he loves. I plan to make him more— my husband is tall and store-bought pajamas don’t fit him right!

    While it depends on the man, and men like many similar things as women (books, sporting equipment, cookware), I try to make something or give something that reflects the relationship I have with them. In the past I’ve given handmade ties, hand-framed art, beer, music…

    As with anything, it depends on the man. Books are always a go to for me; they cover any topic of interest, Since my hubby loves working on vintage cars, snap on tools are always on his list as well. Last year Santa brought underwear from the Dukuth Trading Co and he Loves them. Bomba socks are great also. Yes…we are boring. No skydiving lessons here.

    It depends on their interests. My dad likes guns so a gift card to a gun store. My brother in law is a car guy and racing so something car related. My fiance likes to build things like computers and guns. So parts and tools for him.
