I don’t know what all the whining is about how difficult men are to shop for.  We had no trouble coming up with what we think is a pretty great group of gifts.  We hope that there will be something in this list that will appeal to the fellas in your life.

We’ve always thought these knot cufflinks were snappy. This website carries solids, striped, square and rectangular knots in a wide range of colors.  They even have knots in the colors of country flags.  “Knotz” as they’re called here are $12.50 a pair.

If you prefer a funkier pair of cufflinks, under “fashion cufflinks” they have Elvis and Muhammad Ali cufflinks, just to name a few.


For his next trip, let him pack his vitamins in this Tumi leather pill case.  It comes in black or brown leather.

We love this felt log carrier.  It comes in a two-tone natural grey and is 36” x 15” x 1⁄4” thick.  $80.00.

Has he always wanted a Panama hat?  Customize one for him.  Choose the size, and the band color.  That’s it! $69.95 each.

Is he a DIYer? (that stands for “Do It Yourself” but if you had to ask, he isn’t one).  If he is, give him this Ready-Wrench.  It has 16 common socket sizes all in one.  $23.51.

These reading glasses have bamboo temples that make them very lightweight.   $75.00.

These walking sticks are made from exotic materials like antler and buffalo horn and made to order.  Prices start at $95.00.

Get him a custom hat!  It can be made from wool, straw, felt or fur.  It can be formal or totally casual and functional. Prices start at $225.

He does have an iPad, doesn’t he?  If not, get him one immediately!

If he has an iPad, get him a snappy case.  We like this Burberry canvas iPad case for $425.00.

These personalized Ralph Lauren Polo shirts are great looking and reasonably priced.  Choose from 17 shirt colors, choose embroidery color and monogram details.  The final step is to choose your size.  Prices start at $98.00.

Pamper that handsome face with this hypoallergenic shaving kit. Kit includes pre-shaving oil, shaving cream, Badger shaving brush and after-shave balm.  From The Art of Shaving (see our earlier article). $115.00.

Give him a comfy pair of UGG slippers.  The rubber soles allow them to become outdoor shoes in a pinch.  They come in two colors, chestnut or cappuccino.  They are $139.00.

If all else fails, give him some barbeque!  For $105.00 he will receive 1 slab of ribs, 2 lbs. of pulled pork and Rendezvous sauce from this legendary Memphis restaurant.
