Christmas Gifts for Men

Christmas Gifts for Men

How to find the perfect gift

Rule number one in finding the perfect Christmas gifts for men is looking for what they want, not what you want. Too many women Christmas shop for gifts they'd like to see on their men. Christmas is not the time to try to get your guy to start wearing v-neck sweaters or cologne. It's time to find him a gift that he will absolutely love. So, pay attention to what he wants.

A couple of months before Christmas, start paying really close attention when he says, "I'd really like a…" Lots of times when it comes to making Christmas lists, we forget what we so desperately wanted in August. Start writing down the things he says he wants early in the year. He'll be shocked to get a pair of insulated hiking boots for Christmas when he hasn't really thought about them since March! It's easy to find Christmas gifts for men if you keep you ears open!

Ask his friends

If you're having trouble coming up with Christmas gifts for men on your own, ask your guy's friends. The guys will know if he needs a new fishing pole or if he'd prefer fishing net. They'll also be able to help you with name brands. All fishing poles are not created equal and if you don't know anything about fishing, you may end up getting a junky pole.

Don't rely on his friends to know his size. Men generally don't talk about their pants size. You can ask a friend who's the same size as your man what size of shoes or shirts he prefers. This will give you at least an idea of what he wears. A better way to find sizes is to sneak into his closet and take a peek.

Things to remember

Christmas is a special time of year so it's OK to get an expensive gift that you wouldn’t otherwise get. Merino wool sweaters, sporting goods, TVs and collectables are great pricey Christmas gifts for men. Just remember to save the receipt in case your guy needs to exchange his Christmas gift. Christmas is also the busiest time of year for retailers so go shopping early. This will give you plenty of time to special order gifts that the store might not have.

Stocking stuffers

Once you get the main gift out of the way, you can come up with some stocking stuffers. Good stocking stuffers include CDs, razors, shaving cream, aftershave, mini-golf books, golf bags, fishing flies, travel coffee mugs and magazines. Stocking stuffers are a perfect way to top of Christmas gifts for men.
