Gift Guide ~ The men!

Is your guy hard to buy for?  Mine is.

I go through the same thing every year…what to get?


Well, here are some ideas that I am definitely thinking about, and a few that my husband already has…so I know they are a good buy!


We got my husband an iPad2 for Father’s Day, so any accessory for that is always a safe bet.  BUT check this out…so seriously cool.  It’s a remote control helicopter (because he’s always playing with my son’s) that he can control FROM HIS iPad!  Isn’t that awesome?!  All you have to do is download the free app from the App store.

My husband has these noise cancelling headphones from Sony and uses them a lot….when he travels, when I am nagging him or when he watches Sons of Anarchy in bed.  They are comfortable and they also fold up for easy storage.

Another great gift is a good docking station.  If you’re looking for a great one get THIS one from Bose.  It’s wireless, which means it connects to your phone, tablet or other bluetooth device without a wire, or a dock.  It’s small and can fit into your bag or backpack and the sound quality is awesome!  We actually have this docking station and we LOVE it.

Now, for some outdoorsy stuff…

My neighbors have Corn Hole and everyone loves it.  This is a fun version of the game because the platforms have built-in LED lights so you can play when the sun goes down.  I thought it was a cool feature!

See…at night the bags and the boards light up!

My husband loves to use his Smoker.  Weber is a tried and true brand, so how about this Weber Smoker?

Along with that smoker you can get some cool accessories like this chimney starter,  My husband uses his starter all the time, it is a huge time saver when heating up charcoals!

Now save your hubby from burned hands with some insulated BBQ gloves.  My husband uses his all the time.

Kristan’s husband Jess loves these Case knives…they are small in size and great quality.

How fun are these travel mugs?  Don’t they really look like lenses?!  For your photo-obsessed guy, these are really the coolest!

I love these gloves, and actually want a pair for myself…they are Echo touch gloves.  You can use them with your smart phones!  No more cold hands!


So there you have it.  A list of some gift ideas for your guy.

AND if you have any suggestions, let me know!  I need IDEAS!

    I love the lens mug. Of course for a friend, not my husband. I bought him corn hole boards from a site called Bag Daddys, The owner is super nice and the boards are the nicest in town. Just thought I’d pass it along.

    I like the helicopter that can be controlled from the ipad. I will definitely check into that. I think DVD’s are a good gift idea for men too: Breaking Bad, Dexter, Sopranos…

    Funny about the mug– i ordered something similar looking from amazon for my hubby for christmas. I seriously just clicked “check out” and paid then found this site to see your list. :) I can’t wait for him to get it. He’s gonna love it (and I can get my hot cocoa mug back in lime green he keeps swiping)
