Gifts For Men - New Ideas

Does your man already have too many ties? Have you exhausted your list of gift ideas for the man in your life? Then keep on reading for great, new gift ideas for that special someone in your life.

Buying gifts for men is never an easy task, particularly after one has spent year after year with the same person and you are completely out of ideas on what to buy for that special person. Even when you have known someone for years it can be very hard to find something that he doesn't already have or that he really needs. You can only get him so many of the traditional gifts, such as ties, cologne, and the like. Are you afraid that the gifts are becoming more and more impersonal and useless year-after-year? Regardless, of the occasion, your price range, or the moment that you are trying to capture we can help find a new gift for him, that he will love!


Does your man love his car? Is he constantly cleaning, washing, and pampering his ride? Are his Saturdays spent in the driveway working on his car? If so, we have the perfect gift for him. A gift certificate to your local detailing shop may be just what he wants. It will give him a chance to pamper his ride without any effort on his part. His car will come back sparkling clean on the inside and out. The Rims will sparkle and the interior including the seats will look brand new. IT will have that new car smell he loves! His car will look incredible and he will so proud of it. He will be even happier that you are the one who gave him the gift. Looking for a gift that isn't as expensive: buy him a punch-card pass for your local car wash. Now he won't need to spend his Saturday's washing his "baby" and instead you can spend it with him doing something you both love.

Gifts For Men - New Ideas

Does your boyfriend or husband always seem to be working on some home improvement or another? Whether it is building shelves for the garage or a gazebo for the backyard, some men seem to be always doing some type of home improvement. He takes pride in his work and loves the feeling of a job well done, particularly when it is something he built for his home. This man may be even harder to buy for year after year as you realize he already has every tool he could ever use. So then what do you get him? Head over to your local Home Improvement Super Store and look into Do-It-Yourself Classes and sign him up for something he would be interested. Choices vary, but often include fun topics like shed building, dry walling, and the like. This will be more valuable than any other tool you have gotten him. You are giving him a new skill and new knowledge he can put to good use in his home improvements. He'll love the gift and you and your home will too!

Christmas Gifts - Redneck Specialty Christmas Gifts

Rednecks are part of the local establishment, from the Sheriff Jim with the longhorn hood ornament on his Chevy Blazer to the Mayor's two tone cow truck that carries her around town, Rednecks blaze a trail in the local community. But until you've had a truly fashionable redneck Christmas, you just really have not celebrated. Part of that celebration includes original trendy redneck gifts.

Redneck bubble bath -


A handful of pinto beans in a plastic baggie tied with a piece of red cord not only decorates the tree, but serves as an impromptu gift for those elegant ladies who come to visit over the holidays. Everyone could use a good bubble bath!

Redneck coat hanger -

After deer hunting season a nice rack of horns doesn't have much to do 'cept hang around, so if you mount 'em on a nice wood plaque and hang 'em on the wall, they make a beautiful coat hanger. Shoot two and have an extra gift to give.

Redneck hood ornament -

Nobody really likes those hood ornaments that come on the old Ford truck, so give that buddy a new ornament. A pair of long horns, or a set of antlers works better than a silver bug catcher.

Redneck bed frame -

Often recognized as the perfect gift for newlyweds, this awesome gift of love gets their buns up off the floor. Give 'em 4 family size soup cans and four long boards to frame the bed and you've got the handiest dandy bed frame in the south (and room enough for ole Beau to crawl under on those cold nights).

Redneck bun warmer -

For that prized two holer in the back yard, every redneck wants a pair of bun warmers and the craftiest among you will be able to figure out how to cover two toilet seats with flannel and solve the problem. Flannel is much nicer to sit on when the snow flies on those cold winter mornings.

If you've had just about enough of Redneck Christmas Gift ideas, I've got another plan that just might suit your fancy a little better. Try 12 Days of Christmas at and get twelve wonderful stocking stuffers you can give to your loved ones, friends, and family (even if they ain't a redneck in the bunch of 'em).

Gifts For Christmas

Gifts for Dad

Whether the dad in your life is a rough and tumble kind of guy or prefers Armani suits to t-shirts and jeans, there's a gift out there that will show him how much you appreciate all that he does for you. Whether he'd rather spend the afternoon improving his handicap or playing video games, there's something in this Holiday gift guide for your dad, husband or significant other. We're skipping some of the more obvious big-ticket items like TVs and grills. Instead we're giving you some fresh and creative ideas. And if that special guy isn't a dad, he'll love these items too!

Corporate Dad


He's Polished with a capital P. Down to his shiny Italian leather shoes, the guy in your life wouldn't be seen without a crisp buttondown and a pair of pressed dress pants. Or, maybe he needs a little nudge in the right direction. Either way, he'll appreciate the luxury and quality of these snazzy duds.

Gifts for Dad

The Classic White Shirt

Nothing looks more elegant that a crisp herringbone white buttondown with French cuffs like one from Forzieri.

Ties (guys like them, really!)

Ties get a bad rap as the stand-by gift for men but if your guy works in an office, he wears ties! And any savvy businessman knows that all components of his work ensemble send a message. A luxury silk tie is the only way to go. Trust us, he will love it (and wear it).

The timeless watch

Corporate Dad is a busy guy, so he needs a classy watch to keep him on time. Go for something original that will bring a smile to his face every time he checks the time. The Philip Stein Teslar watch with a black Ostrich strap is elegant and modern at the same time.

Cuff links

The well-heeled dad needs a set of sharp cuff links to hold those French cuffs together. Try Tahitian Pearl Cufflinks (that's right, guys can wear pearls too) from PurePearls.

Watch & Cufflink organizer

Okay, so corporate dad is a high-roller kind of guy but he may need a little help keeping all those pieces organized (watch, cuff links, etc.), so give him a watch & cuff link box-just be sure not to call it a jewelry box, he might get a little touchy.

Luxury Briefcase

To complete Corporate Dad's look he needs a briefcase-but not just any briefcase. While he may not admit it, you'll recognize the twinkle in his eye when he opened a package and smells the smooth calf skin leather of his new luxury briefcase, like the one from Pierre Cardin.

On the go Dad

On the go Dad is always going somewhere, so give him the gift of stylish (and comfortable) travel with these ideas.

Travel bags

If your dad or significant other is always on the go, he doesn't need a gigantic suitcase but he also doesn't want to wind up with wrinkled suits. A fold-up garment bag from Glaser Designs is the perfect solution to short trips.

And no businessman will travel anywhere without his laptop in tow. A designer laptop bag protects Dad's laptop and data in style.

Travel Neckpillow

Traveling can take a toll on the neck and shoulders. Dad will appreciate this simple, yet invaluable, travel neckpillow from Magellans.


Whether the dad in your life flies a lot or drives cross-country, he'll love this collection of heart-warming stories about fatherhood. The NPR Driveway Moments for Dads is a collection of humorous and touching stories from the National Public Radio archives that capture the essence of fatherhood. They're so good, he may never even leave the driveway!

Enthusiast Dad

Season tickets

Whatever your dad's favorite sporting event-or maybe it's the opera!-season's tickets is the gift that keeps on giving.

Golf clubs

Seasoned golfer or novice, all golfers know The Big Bertha. Get him what he's always wanted but never bought for himself. He's a good dad, he deserves it!

Connoisseur Dad

Wine cork set

Take the headache out of opening wine with a gourmet wine cork set. You can find them virtually anywhere, including Bed, Bath & Beyond, Cost Plus World Market, liquor stores, department stores and online.

Wine Accessories

Stumped for a gift idea? Give Dad a gift basket filled with wine accessories like wine stoppers, wine totes, wine labels and a wine journal. For a truly one-of-a-kind gift, there's the Wine Enhancer, which uses a special technology to make wine smoother and brighter, and improve the drinkability of young wines.

Gourmet Coffee

Lots of guys gotta have their morning cup of Joe. Go beyond the Folgers or Starbucks and get him gourmet coffee beyond his wildest dreams. Coined as the "most expensive coffee in the world" at 8.00, Arabica Kopi Luwak ground coffee is one of the most sought after by coffee connoisseurs globally. This rare coffee is harvested and roasted in the Indonesian Archipelago. Extremely limited, only 700 pounds are produced annually.

Tea maker

Okay, so tea is not usually the first gift idea to come to mind for a lot of dads, but hear me out. The hassle of tea balls and infusers is too much for many guys. Adagio has a solution: the triniTEA, an electric tea maker that simplifies preparation of loose tea. This all-in-one device prepares tea with a flip of a switch. A warming plate beneath the carafe keeps tea hot so it may be enjoyed for hours. They also stock fragrant loose teas and gourmet teabags.

Smoking Jacket (aka Robe)

Give Dad a luxury robe to wear while he sips his favorite beverage, like the Brioni cashmere herringbone robe. Looking for one less expensive? Try a silk robe from Dillards. And what's a robe without slippers?

Gear Daddy

Wireless Weather Forecaster

Dads dislike getting caught in unforeseen weather like the rest of us. They also like to know when the weather is going to be nice so they can fit in a round of golf. Get him the wireless weather station from Brookstone to keep Dad up to date with real-time reports received via radio signals from AccuWeather. No wiring, computer, or TV required!

Portable entertainment

The Sony Play Station Portable (PSP ) is the ultimate portable entertainment device. For tech loving Dad's the PSP can be customized to any personality. The PSP is the perfect mobile entertainment device for gaming, listening to MP3s, watching movies and sporting events, checking RSS feeds, surfing the Net and much more. A recent partnership with T-mobile enables PSP users to take advantage of six months free WiFi at any T-Mobile hotspot found in airports and Starbuck's coffee locations.

Gifts all dads will love

Personalized gifts

Dads love to show off their family, so why not give him something to remind him of what a great family he has with a personalized gift? These days you can get almost anything personalized, from mouse pads to pens and notepads to picture frames and mugs. Vista Print has everything you need for the perfect Holiday gift.

Dad's Own Cookbook

In addition to divorced fathers, there are 15 million dads in families where both parents work and Dad is expected to take his turn making dinner. Never has there been a time when kitchen skills have been so desirable but also so necessary for fathers. So what's a culinary-challenged Dad to do?

Dad's Own Cookbook (Workman, .95) is the one-stop culinary school for the bewildered. It is for every single dad facing new responsibilities in the kitchen, or married dad who has to step up to the plate...and serve it. Filled to the brim with 150 easy and delicious recipes, the book dispenses indispensable tips and techniques, from the basic, such as preheating an oven, to the elaborate, such as creating the perfect birthday party menu for a child.

Digital Photo Frame

For the modern dad, a digital photo frame is the perfect gift. The Pandigital 7" Digital Photo Frame allows Dad to copy your photos, videos and MP3s directly from your memory card, digital camera or PC. Frame easily stores up to 298 two megapixel photos and has two interchangeable frames.


Giving this gift may be a delicate matter but believe us when we say Dad will thank you (even if it's silent). The grooming of back hair is not only sensitive for men, it's also hard to do! The MANGROOMER is the essential do-it-yourself electric back hair shaver for men. The unique design enables a man to remove unwanted back hair by himself in the privacy of his own home or while traveling. It's quick, easy and painless.

Shave kit

Every man needs a shave kit. Do it up in style with a calfskin shave kit from Cole Haan. If Dad is a friend of the environment, he'll like this Shaving Soap Gift Set from the Napa Soap Company. The long-lasting shaving soap is packed with French clay, aloe vera and soothing oils for a smooth shave. Comes in a reusable, environmentally-friendly antiqued mug with a badger bristle brush. Available in three fresh blends: Lavender Cedar, Cool Mint Rosemary, or Ocean.

Craft Gifts For Dad - Great Gift Ideas

Kids love making crafts, and Dad's love getting gifts! What better combination can there be when the holidays, dad's birthday and Father's day comes around. Crafts occupy kids in a hands-on manner and involves them with creative thinking. Crafting is so much more productive then sitting in front of the television or computer.

Craft Gifts For Dad - TexMex Coaster


This fun coaster will bring the cowboy out in your accountant Dad. You'll need pony beads (13 turquoise and 12 silver), a circle of cork, a concho, suede cord (about 4 feet, tan or brown works well), scissors and a hole punch. Punch holes with the hole punch all the way around the cork circle, just 1/4'' up from the edge, and about 1/2' apart from each other. Weave the suede cord through these circles, and alternate the blue and silver beads as you go through each hole. Make sure not to put any beads in the first or last holes, then string the suede cord through the concho, tie in a cowboy's knot (overhand), then trim!

Craft Gifts For Dad - Great Gift Ideas

Craft Gifts for Dad - Paper Clip Box

First you'll need a few essentials from the craft store, such as a paper mache circular box with a lid as well as a mini wooden car. Get out Mom's glue gun, paints and brushes, gold paint and of course, paper clips! Set down newspapers and do this outside if the weather permits. Paint the paper mache box (red is a favorite color for most dads), and paint the car as well. It works best if the bottom portion of the box and the lid are painted in different colors (like red and black). Use the gold pen to write Dad's name, or the word "Dad" on the front of the box. Simply use the hot glue gun to attach the car to the lid, then fill the box with paper clips and you've made Dad a spectacular gift for his desk!

Craft Gifts for Dad - Dad Rocks Paperweight

Every dad needs a pet rock! All you need for this craft is a large, semi flat rock (about 3''), acrylic paints, brushes, foam music notes, instruments and foam letters. Use the paint to paint the rock in your dad's favorite colors. Black would look great with white or red foam letters. Let the rock dry. Stick the letters and music notes to the rock. Spell out any phrase you wish. "Dad Rocks!" or "Dad You Rock" works well for this craft. Use the music note and musical instrument foams on the sides of the phrase to emphasize dad's coolness!

Craft Gifts for Dad - Memo Holder

Dad will never have an excuse for missing a meeting again with this memo holder! You will need a mini toolbox (can be found in miniature section at any crafts store), 25 popsicle (craft) sticks, glue, white paint marker and a post it note pad. Use the craft sticks alternately in box formation to create a "crate" effect. At the top, glue the mini toolbox, and if the toolbox came with tiny tools, glue one on each side of the memo holder, and the rest inside the toolbox. Use the white paint to write "Dad" on the toolbox, then set the post it note pad inside the box. Dad will love it!

Ideas For Wedding Anniversary Gifts

Only the very best wedding anniversary gifts can be found here. And you will see a better selection of potential presents online than you can find anywhere else. In addition to the convenience of shopping on the web, you will find more gifts for wedding anniversaries than you could possibly imagine. I know you will love the great selection available for you when you browse around for the perfect wedding and wedding anniversary presents.

There are several kinds of wedding anniversary gifts to choose from which are somewhat "classified" by the length of the marriage, as well as your familiarity or kind of relationship you have with the couple. In other words, as a very close fiend you will likely purchase something more meaningful, more personal, and more expensive than if you know the couple well (but not THAT well).


Most importantly, if you are the husband or wife, your anniversary gift to your significant other must be very meaningful, or at least that should be the goal. Guessing that yours (as a couple) is a happy marriage, you will certainly want to express the extent of your love for your partner in the best possible way that you can.

Ideas For Wedding Anniversary Gifts

For example:

· Newlyweds:

Even if the couple is celebrating their first or second year of marriage, they may still be considered, in a sense, newlyweds. After all, they have just begun the rest of their lives together.

In such a case you may decide to buy more typical kinds of wedding anniversary gifts such as jewelry, flowers, a fancy gourmet dinner etc. These are great ideas for the husband or wife to purchase as gifts for their anniversary. Show your new spouse that you can reaffirm and reassure him or her of the dedication and the promises you made on your wedding day--reaffirm the love you already have.

· Golden anniversaries:

When you and your spouse celebrate your golden wedding anniversary, it is certainly a time to be cherished. The above is true for any wedding anniversary gifts that are for a couple whose marriage has lasted for many years. Especially in our current situation in America, where fifty percent of couples divorce, your wedding anniversary gifts should show your admiration for making the relationship, the love, and the friendship last and last.

By the same token, if you are celebrating a golden wedding anniversary, by buying a wedding anniversary gift for someone you know such as friend or family members, you want any wedding anniversary gifts to be appropriate for the occasion. Think of wedding anniversary gifts that would be especially significant to them as a couple; think of wedding anniversary gifts that symbolize their love for each other, even after fifty years of marriage. What a immense and beautiful feeling that must be.

· Wedding anniversary gifts for troubled couples:

For a spouse, this may be a tough gift to choose if you are going through a rough patch in your marriage. However, especially at this delicate and crucial time between you and your spouse . . . wedding anniversary gifts are not something to take lightly. Remember your wedding anniversary above all else--to forget or to not acknowledge could be a huge mistake. And try to purchase a gift that will not be misinterpreted in any way--whether raising your spouse's hopes too high, or making them feel less important to you than they really are.

Whether you know that you want things to work out between you and your spouse, or even if you are not quite sure what you want. At least let him or her (but especially her) know that you were thinking of him or her on the anniversary of your union.

Women take gifts much more seriously than men most of the time, and for the husband, you do not want to accidentally give her something that does not express your true feelings.

I believe that wedding anniversary gifts are an essential part of any wedding anniversary, but you have to look for the wedding anniversary gifts that are just right for your spouse, and that express how you feel. You should get him or her the very best anniversary present and remind them of the way you both felt on your wedding day. These kinds of wedding anniversary gifts will have an impact that will last and last--with my sincerest hope--"as long as you both shall live."

Ideas for Good Christmas Gifts

If you need ideas for good Christmas gifts, you are not alone. But sometimes, when there are so many choices, it makes it harder to choose. Ironic, don't you think? And another factor is the time constraint. You need to get a good Christmas gift for your loved ones but you don't have all the time in the world to do it. When you feel rushed and frantic, sometimes it is all just too much.

So it's best to start Christmas shopping as early as you can and give it some thought as to what to get for whom. Good Christmas presents are those that are meaningful to the recipient. A gift that goes along with your recipient's interests, likes or hobbies is ideal. A person who loves baking would like a cake or cookie recipe book, an avid reader would love a gripping novel, an amateur photographer would treasure handy camcorder.


Another characteristic of great Christmas presents are those that reflect on the nature of your relationship. For a girlfriend, a watch, bracelet, necklace, or pair of earrings is almost always a perfect present. Women usually love these types of things, and by giving them gifts like these, you let them know that you think they are pretty.

Ideas for Good Christmas Gifts

Sometimes, a Christmas gift idea is something totally unexpected. My wife loves watching old movies so imagine her surprise when I got her a brand new Sony BDV-HZ970W home cinema for Christmas last year! I discovered that the element of surprise is a powerful thing, especially when used correctly.

Finally, when it comes to children, good Christmas gifts to me are educational gifts. I particularly like the ones that Leapfrog produces. They are leaders in the children educational toys and games industry. My kids particularly enjoy the Leapfrog Scribble and Write and the Leapfrog Leapster Explorer learning game.

Easy Knitting Patterns - Knit Christmas Gifts

If you choose the right techniques and easy knitting patterns, making your own Christmas gifts
doesn't have to be intimidating. Even a beginning knitter can make wonderful gifts that will show
your love and creativity!

The key to knitting for gifts is to keep things simple, use quality
materials, and, if you want to knit several gifts, consider using one pattern multiple times.


I'm a beginning knitter (or I don't know how to knit yet)

Easy Knitting Patterns - Knit Christmas Gifts

Here's the big untold secret about knitting. If you pick a simple pattern, knitting is really
easy! If you're an absolute beginner or just feeling a little lack of confidence, knit up some
scarves in chunky, beautiful yarn.

They'll go quickly, winter scarves are wonderful to wear, and a thick "novelty" style yarn hides any little irregularities in your stitches.

If you don't know how to knit at all, pick up a book like Teach Yourself Knitting Visually or a
clear, simple how-to-knit eBook like this one

You can master the basics in less time than it took you to figure out how your email program worked.

Finding the time to make handmade gifts

This is the kicker, right? We're all crazy busy, and finding time to make hand-knit gifts might
seem completely impossible.

Here are some great opportunities to get some knitting in. Think about your own schedule and see
if there are other times you can find.

  • TV. This is the big one for most folks. If you watch an hour of TV a night, you can get a beautiful gift knitted every week, at least. Two hours a night = two gifts a week. Netflix counts too!
  • Train or bus commutes. If you usually manage to get a seat, especially on the train or light rail, this is a fabulous knitting opportunity. Again, you can figure an average of a gift a week per hour of commute time.
  • Waiting on hold. Does your job or home life ever find you waiting around on hold, in a doctor's office, or anywhere else? Perfect knitting opportunity.
  • Before-bed wind-down. Staying up on the Internet or electronic gaming until right before bed (you know you do it) is rotten for your sleep patterns. Instead, about an hour before you want to turn in, make yourself a cup of non-caffeinated tea, put on a recorded book or some music, and get out your knitting needles. You know what I'm going to say next. An hour a night will equal at least one beautiful knitted gift every week.

Knit for charity

If you live in a warm climate or your friends just aren't winter scarf people, you might consider
knitting for charity. You can knit blankets for the elderly in cold climates, "comfort dolls" to
comfort children with AIDS in Africa, or hats and scarves for the homeless. Google "knit for charity" to find some great opportunities. You might even consider knitting for charity in a friend's name as a holiday gift, if you're a little short on cash for something like the Heifer Project.

Tips for knitting Christmas gifts without stress

The most important tip is to keep it simple. Even if you're a pretty proficient knitter, this isn't the time to learn a new technique or work with a skinny fingering-weight yarn that will take forever to knit up. Pick an easy knitting pattern for something like:

  • A winter scarf
  • A simple winter hat
  • Fun knit toys
  • Easy fingerless mittens

I created a Squidoo lens with lots of tips, patterns, resources and ideas--far more than I can link to in an ezinearticle. There are resources there for cute and easy knitted toys, too, and some more charity knitting ideas. You can find it at Knit Christmas Presents

If you find a pattern you like, say for an easy hat or a cute stuffed toy, use it as many times as you can for multiple presents. You'll be amazed at how much faster the second, third, and fourth version of the same pattern can be.

You also will usually want to stick with chunky yarns (this is a good use for "novelty" yarns, which have lots of texture and are usually thick but also light and fluffy), since they knit up quickly so you can make more presents. Remember that a scarf or hat should be made of nice, soft yarn so it feels good against the face. Even a beginner can make a simple scarf with novelty yarn in just a few hours, and have it look just fantastic.

Don't let the idea of knitting Christmas presents intimidate you! Keep it simple, use quick-knitting materials, make use of your downtime, and you'll have 5 or 10 heartwarming home-made gifts to give this year. Happy knitting!
