Believe it or not, there’s more to Christmas shopping for guys than flannel PJs and electronics. Tap into his personality and interests to give a gift that’s sentimental, not stereotypical. Here are our top picks to get you inspired, all at under $50.
For the professional
Whether he just got promoted to the corner office or is just starting out in the newbie cubicle, a gift he can display at work shows others he means serious business. This airplane clock and weather station, $34,99, is an impressive, attention-grabbing piece to display on his desk. For a professional piece he’d rather keep at home, this cufflink display case, $39.95, stashes his cufflinks within arm’s reach.
For the wine connoisseur
Wine aerators are a must for anyone amassing a wine collection. This swanky version, $49.99, fits right into the bottle to aerate and serve in one fell swoop. Wine racks are a dime a dozen, but this leather gravity-defying holder, $25,95, art-like in form, will impress him (and, in turn, anyone he wines and dines). Speaking of impressive, it’s often the smallest details that do just that; this vintage pool ball wine stopper carries a nostalgic feel and is just what’s missing in his mancave.
For the techie
No ordinary gadgets will do. The name of this game is anything unique, useful, or playful. This customized mp3 doorbell does the trick, or this clever gadget that turns any iPad or iPhone into a universal remote, or this nostalgic retro TV iPad case.
For the outdoorsy
Make the great outdoors a little greater with this portable barbecue grill and cooler in one. This wool throw makes camping cozy with patriotic flair, and talk about an all-in-one tool; this flashlight quadruples as a radio, weather station, and cell phone recharger to keep unexpected surprises at bay.
