Having a ton of gifts to pick from doesn't always make picking the right one easier. So, if you're still not sure which manly gifts are right for your bro...

Here is how to pick the best manly gift:

1. Reflect

The key to gift giving is finding a gift that will mean something personal to your recipient. The same is true with gifts for men. Think about your friend's passions, interests, and personality, then scroll back through and see what jumps out at you.

2. Set a Budget

Sometimes the budget is one you set, and sometimes it's one set by your friends. Decide how much you're willing to spend and rule out any options that are over-budget.

3. Imagine

Once you have a few options, imagine how your friend would react to receiving each one. Will he immediately see the gift's significance? Will he laugh and then forget about it? Will he use it, or will it just take up space?

Choose the gift you imagine will bring him the most, and the most long-lasting, joy.
