It’s not easy to pick out holiday gifts for men. You would think it should be easier since they are less complicated than women. Men have fewer things to choose from, but that is what makes it less exciting, I suppose. I find it harder to get thrilled buying my dad and brother gifts than my girlfriends. I guess when you're buying the same sex gifts you get to look for yourself too-- a little bit more selfish! If you have similar problem, you’ll be impressed with my list of great gifts to buy “him.” The funny thing is, I chose items that I would use as well-- I couldn’t let go of my selfish side!
Brookstone Electric Wine Opener

They say it’s a great gift if you get something you want, but wouldn’t buy for yourself. My first pick is just that. Men rarely buy a box to hold anything, especially their watches-- it’s a wonderful gift! If the man you are buying for has two or more watches, this Ampersand Watch Case with Glass Doors will be a much appreciated gift. The wooden box prevents the watches from getting misplaced or damaged. It holds up to 5 watches securely, each over their own individual pillow. This box keeps everything organized, clean, and visible for the awesome price of $19.99.
If he’s a wine lover, snag this automatic wine opener. This opener keeps it simple by uncorking a bottle of wine in seconds, with a push of a button. I love how smooth it is-- no messy accidents or frustrations. The Brookstone Automatic Electric Wine Opener is rechargeable and works on both synthetic and natural corks. The opener comes with a foil cutter, the rechargeable base, and AC adapter. I personally have one of these openers and use it all the time. Now that I have one, I couldn’t imagine going through all the motions of uncorking a bottle of wine again!
Burberry Camel Check Card Case

The next item has to do with charging an iPod or iPhone. Also from Brookstone, the iDesign Power Speaker Stereo Dock is a sleek compact size iPod / iPhone dock with 2 full range stereo speakers and a built in subwoofer. It has easy access volume controls and plays, docks and charges most iPods. The small, modern design makes this a great gift because it can be taken from room to room if needed. Plus, the cool design makes it more appealing.
Lastly, if you have a man in your life who loves high-end labels and doesn’t settle for less, I dig the Burberry Camel Check Card Case. It’s definitely not a full wallet, but something for the man who likes to avoid bulk and tends to leave the house with one or two credit cards and a driver's license. This classy credit card holder with the famous Burberry print is always a hit!
