He might not realize how much he’ll appreciate this gift until he uses it – spoken like a true ulterior-motivated wife, I know – but once he does, it’ll become part of his daily routine. This mahogany-finished Reed & Barton Valet makes a sleek, organized addition to his dresser … the dresser that’s currently strewn with spare change, gum wrappers, cuff links, and an empty coffee cup. Granted, this valet won’t take the coffee cup to the kitchen, but it’ll organize everything else, from wallet to phone, pens to eyeglasses. Compartments on top as well as in the large drawer provide plenty of storage. I – I mean he – will love it.

Looking to score big with a man in your life? My husband and I have been enjoying our Winmau dart board for several years, and it’s still like new. Now that this board is complete with a wood cabinet and scoreboard, we make happy hour at home a little more exciting with some friendly competition. My husband studied in London and enjoyed relaxing with friends at the pub, so playing darts at home has been a great way to bring some fun traditions and memories into our free time. What dart board would be complete without darts? Make your mark with a high-quality set featuring specialty flights. Bullseye!
Every guy I know loves table tennis. No joke. Every. Single. One. They all morph into 12-year-old boys when they play, which, I know from being both an opponent and spectator, is insanely fun for them. Whether the guy you’re buying for is 12 or 62, doesn’t matter, he’ll garner hours of carefree happiness from this gift. Not only is this blue beauty totally affordable, it also sports sturdy construction, is portable, and folds up for easy storage when not in use. It comes with the table and net set; all you need to do is pick up a few necessities, and you’re good to go on gifts. Let the fun, games, and fond memories begin!
As a non-gamer, I couldn’t tell you what the hottest new games are or which system is best, but I do know a cool chair when I see one. The X Rocker II Wireless Video Game Chair looks like something that would be equally enjoyed by the occasional gamer like my husband or the full-time, rarely-sees-the-light-of-day gamer like my neighbor. It’s ergonomically designed and rocks so he’ll be playing comfortably, and the vinyl upholstery makes it easy to wipe away anything from Cheetos dust to soda spills. Speakers built into the headrest will have him feeling like he’s in the middle of the action. If only it tilted, rocked, and shook in time with the game … that would be super awesome.
Maybe he’ll ‘fess up to it, maybe he won’t – but there’s no denying that the man in your life gets cold feet once in a while. The reasons are easy to grasp: chilly floorboards and absent Lamo Mens Suede Moccasin Slippers. These loafer moccasins offer abundant warmth for tootsies large and small. Classic suede, soft faux fur lining, and rubber soles make them virtual foot furnaces. By design, these slippers are a perfect gift for great guys everywhere.
