These Are A Few of My Favourite Things
This is more or less a guy gift-giving guide, but it’s really designed to start your thinking. PLEASE add to this in the comments!
Here are a few of my favourite “guy things”:
Super bright light stick with a magnet: This is about as close to a guaranteed-he-will-love-it stocking stuffer as there is. Every time I loan mine out to a guy I have to fight to get it back.
Wire Mesh Safety Goggles: The problem with most safety goggles is they fog up. This is especially a problem when you’re working outside doing things like weed-eating or cutting down trees. These goggles have a fine wire mesh that stops all but the smallest projectiles, and it can’t fog. I had a pair of these when I was doing landscaping and I loved them. I have a new pair now for when I’m running a chainsaw. Goggles are useless if you don’t wear them; these are goggles he will wear.
Electric Ice Chest: Lori and I got one of these for our car trip last summer so we wouldn’t have to deal with ice. It worked far better than I expected. You can plug it into the wall or the cigarette lighter socket on a vehicle. We’ve run it for two hours on several parked vehicles without running down the battery. Aside from mobile use, this would make a great mini-fridge in a man cave or garage.
The Ultimate Mouse Trap: Everyone around here had a horrible problem with mice this last year. Aside from the vast numbers of mice, they were really good at stealing food from the traps. I got a few of these because they were the only thing left at the store. When I found out they worked incredibly well, I went on Amazon and bought a dozen of them. About half of those have been “loaned out” and I never expect to see them again. Yesterday at our 20+ person Thanksgiving feast I overheard one guy telling another about these traps. It may seem like an odd gift, but if your man has been in the trenches of the mouse wars he will think kind thoughts of you every time these traps do their thing!
Marionberry Fruit Wine: I keep sharing this with people who “don’t like wine” and they love it. Lori and I used to stock up at producer’s company store in Salem Oregon when were went down there. Finding it on Amazon was great!
Military Drop Tested USB 3.0 External Hard Drive: I’ve never had a computer hard drive fail, but I’ve had two backup drives go bad. This one is rock solid and very rugged. It’s been transported in pants and jacket pockets, left in hot and cold vehicles, and dropped more than once, and it’s still going.
Madalyn’s Backyard Pecan Coffee: We were turned on to this in Austin two years ago, and we can’t get enough. Bits of pecans are roasted with the coffee beans. It smells amazing and tastes just as good. We’ve tried a couple of other less expensive brands, but none of them was as good as this one.
Aeropress Coffee and Espresso Maker: The best way to make great, non-bitter coffee. It’s a bit more work, but if he’s a coffee snob it will well worth it.
CamelBak Water Bottle: I’ve used this thing daily for three and a half years across 35 states and back. I’ve dropped it, kicked it, and may or may not have run over it with a riding mower, and it’s still in one piece.
Red Lingerie: Okay, I don’t actually own any of this myself, but I really like seeing it on Lori! Show up for bed Christmas Eve in red, he’ll love it. (No link for this one. Amazon has plenty of items in this category, but the images can be R rated.) And remember, with lingerie, less is more!
