But no matter the guy, food baskets make great gifts for guys.

When it comes to shopping for birthday gifts for him or stocking stuffers for Christmas, make it all about something he can use and enjoy right away. Picking Christmas and birthday gifts for men doesn't have to be hard!
So he’s more of a hiker; that’s okay. July has Independence Day sales on a lot of hiking gear, outdoor furniture, and even grills. It’s the dead set center of the summer, and in certain areas, those are the only months where they can really do anything with the great outdoors. Give them an addition to their hiking arsenal, and pocket the shaved-off top of the budget to keep for yourself (or grab them an additional gift). You’ll also see similar sales on Labor Day come the beginning of September.
"Man Crates is one of the coolest websites I found for manly gifts. Not only does the gift come in a… more wooden crate with its own crowbar but it comes with super cool items inside. He got 4 NHL glasses, hockey puck coasters, a bottle opener made from a used hockey stick, and a few top rated snacks! They have tons of different choices for the gifts in the crate but my husband Brendan loves his Flyers! Thank you so much for making my first anniversary gift to my husband so easy! He loves it!!” - Melissa less
Most women will hint about things when it gets close to their birthday or a holiday. The hint may not always be about a specific item, but may also indicate how she is feeling or how much she feels comfortable about you spending. No matter what she is saying- listen! It’ll make gift shopping easier and ensures you’re getting her something she wants.
This is one gift that any women will really love. Everyone enjoys a good massage, but who has the time or money to get a professional one at any time that the urge arises? Instead, get her a massager of her own that she can use on herself. There is a huge variety of options out there, so see if you can catch her complaining about being sore anywhere specific as there are great choices for feet, head, back, and just all-over options too.
We’ll start with the one that’s going to make your life the most simple: a gift receipt. These are like Willy Wonka’s golden tickets, giving you free range to correct your error as pain-free as possible. Even with these, you’ll still have to provide a form of photo ID in some places. It’s rare, but it’s something you don’t want to be caught without, especially if you’re stuck in the return line after a major holiday.
The all-new voice controlled smart speaker by Sonos is one of our favorite gift ideas for 2018. With Alexa built it, you can not only play music, but also check news and traffic and control other smart devices. If the person you’re shopping for already has a smart speaker, or might not use it to its full potential, consider Sonos PLAY:1, their smart speaker made for playing music.
Dolls make great girl Christmas gifts, but stretch her imagination and let her play with a dollhouse that she sets up for herself. For Christmas ideas for boys, think about engraved sports equipment that they can use next season or an art set if they are a young artist. Art easels are an especially thoughtful gift for kids that can help them expand their minds and are perfect presents for kids any time of year.
Another twist on the tried and true blue and green anniversary “stones” is a set of agate coasters in deep jewel tones of sapphire and emerald. Much like a marriage partnership, the true beauty of these stones is found inside and created only over the course of many years — an analogy you can use as a jumping-off point for a thoughtful card to accompany them. The set includes four coasters, each between 3.5” and 4.5”, and each totally unique as the variations are naturally grown in the stone. They are selected for their fine ocean shades and polished to a party-ready sheen. He can put them to use in his man cave or perhaps now he will actually use a coaster.

If you’re zoning-in on their interests, use the knowledge at your disposal to garner a good foundation. If you’ve heard anything in passing, such as, “I’d really like to do this, but I don’t have X to do it with,” you just figured out something vital: they don’t have everything they need to complete their desired tasks, and you now have a much more narrow margin of error. Bonus points if you remember exactly what they said they needed, even if it’s something that’s not inline with your interests.
The world's first automatic, all-grain homebrewing appliance, Pico is basically a Keurig for beer. Instead of K-cups, it uses prepackaged boxes of grains and hops from dozens of craft breweries to create whatever style of beer you choose. Whether you prefer a Rogue Dead Guy Ale from Oregon or a Whetstoner Session IPA from Vermont, the Pico allows you to brew up a batch at home. And while it's true that you could buy a hefty supply of beer for what the machine costs, there's nothing quite like tapping a keg of liquid you created yourself.
Some exchanges may require you to bring a form of photo ID, even just for exchanges. If there’s a physical store, you can go for the same item in different colors or sizes, or as we mentioned, something of equal or lesser value. In the end, you could even grab the store credit, and transfer it over to the gentleman on your list who didn’t like the gift. That way, he’ll be able to go pick something out or use it with his own money for a larger purchase.

This isn’t a bag thing, but it also comes with an additional difficulty factor, one that we wanted to flesh out in an entire section. The practical guy has three types of people who are going to understand his hobbies or understand what items will make his career/job easier to perform. They see these gifts as optimizing their life, which is a big up for the happiness factor. The types of people and the reactions they can expect are as follows:
