Posted by Alexandra C. | Tuesday December 4, 201211 comments

While men like to complain that 'women are so difficult to figure out' and they 'never know what to buy for us', I think we can all agree that really, men are the ones who make gift giving a challenge. 

I know my father never actually seems like he wants or needs anything. What's up with that? I want/need/must have in my life at least three different items on a daily basis! 

Well, in an effort to figure them out, I rounded up some fabulous gifts that are sure to please any man in your life. No matter how picky they are, there will be something here that will catch their eye!

I'm really loving that Herschel iPad sleeve!

These are all really great gift ideas! I am incredibly excited to see what I will be getting under the tree tomorrow. I am excited to see that you included a portable record player on this list. I have been collecting records for the past few years and I truly think that the sound quality they provide is much better than mp3's or even cd. Viva the vinyl revolution! Thanks for the great list, and happy holidays!

My guy is so hard to buy for. After 26 years together he has pretty much every thing, so I'm always at a loss as to what to get him. Thanks for the ideas; I just might go for a few of these this year.
