It's that time of year again!
Christmas is right around the corner, and with it comes the search for the perfect gifts for your dad, boyfriend, best friend, boss, neighbor, and really... for yourself!
But as we all know: shopping for men (even just knowing what to tell people to get you) can be super tough. There are so many factors to think about when choosing the perfect gift for a guy:
- Will he use it? (Every guy wants something awesome and practical he'll enjoy using.)
- Is it thoughtful? (Most guys aren't asking Santa for a gift card or some other boring gift.)
- Is it affordable? (Can you buy it without going broke?)
And as we also know:
Searching for the best gift for him, that meets the three criteria above can be stressful, especially when you've been fighting traffic and crowds at the mall for hours, or have 30 tabs open on your computer (and still no idea what you're looking for).
But don't worry... because I've got you covered:
Below, I found 27 gifts, that match all three factors above, making finding the perfect gift significantly easier for you. Each of these Christmas gifts is thoughtful (without being cheesy), practical/useful, and incredibly manly (and really, something that every guy would be happy getting).
Check out what I found:
Men (especially busy professionals) understand the importance of comfortable socks and the folks at BLACKSOCKS have gotten comfort down to a science.
These luxury socks are made in Italy with fine PIMA cotton (meaning they're insanely comfortable), come in a wide range of classic colors and funky patterns (meaning regardless the occasion, you'll look great)... and even meet the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 (a textile-quality certification system that follows a product all the way down the supply chain).
You can get a pair, a pack, or a 'sockscription' (where they take the hassle out of buying socks... and ship matching socks right to your doorstep each month).
