    Good headphones, gaming mouse or a HUGE mousepad that covers the majority of their desk, upscale microphone – not attached to the headphones, tools, homemade fudge or banana bread, new office or gaming chair, cologne.

    Last year we gave our son a race car driving experience which he absolutely loved! He even invited us to go along and watch him—what a great day! This year I am looking for another perfect experiential gift, but I am also making him a flannel blanket throw.Tech gifts are also always appreciated.

    A good gift would be pajamas if you want something to sew, maybe a shirt or coat. Or technology, guys love technology.

    I think a good gift for a man would be any type of tool. Most men love tools or a new attachment for a tool he already has. Happy Holidays!!

    I always get my dad gift certificates to different restaurants. He hates clutter and he’s got everything he needs. I mean, what guy doesn’t love to eat? Plus he can take his wife, and everyone is happy with that! :)

    For the men in my life, I like making “luxury” gifts. Fluffy bathrobes, lined hooded shirts, warm pajamas, etc. Us gals spoil ourselves all the time, but some men don’t. They deserve a little lux time too!

    A lap quilt designed by using his favorite colors and possibly trying to incorporate his passion such as hockey, golf, fishing etc. This will make it a very special personalized gift for him.
