36 Gift Ideas for Guys
So Christmas is fast approaching and (once again), you’re at a loss for gift ideas for your guy. Whether your “guy” is your friend, boyfriend, husband, brother or father- buying gifts for guys isn’t always easy…
Now we can always play the “What should I get him?” game, and I could suggest things like shirts, ties, shoes, jackets, etc… but in reality, men are as excited to see those types of gifts under the Christmas tree as they are to go shopping with you.
Unless they’ve specified otherwise, getting guys gifts like that is just the same as them getting you a vacuum, pots & pans or any other domestic item that screams “unthoughtful”.
Ask the Guys Themselves
So I came up with an idea… WHY NOT JUST ASK THEM WHAT THEY WANT? That’s the “guy” thing to do, right? Just get to the point?
And sure, you could go ask them yourselves- but it ruins the element of surprise. Also, you might get all the runaround answers like, “I don’t need anything”, “I have you, that’s all I need”, “I don’t want to spend the money”, etc…
So I solved this year’s Christmas mystery for you and asked several men in my neighborhood and in my close circle, what they REALLY want for Christmas. These men all fit within the 30 to 60 year-old age range, so if your guy fits in there… do I have a cheat sheet for you!
But before we dive in- Just a reminder that of course, all men are different- some into sports, some into fitness, video games, books, hunting, etc… so this list isn’t a one size fits all, but I think it’s a good starting point and diverse enough to possibly find something for one of your “guys”.

So there you have it… 36 Gift Ideas for the Guy(s) in Your Life… from the mouths of men, themselves.
