Cool Guy Gifts
Do you have a guy on your gift list who seems to have one of
everything. If you're scratching your head this gift-giving season, give
these ideas a try:
1. Concert tickets
If your guy enjoys live music or theater, there are always new shows he'll enjoy. Call your local box office or do a search online to see what is coming up in the future. Some box offices will even let you buy general tickets that can be used at a show of the recipient’s choice. RazorGator specializes in hard to find event tickets, and offers frequent coupon codes and special offers, which we list here.
2. Beer or Wine
Look for a specialty brand or a sampler kit from a brewery or winery. You can pair the spirits with fancy glasses or just give the beverages by themselves. Gourmet Gift of the Month Club offers wine of the Month, Beer of the Month, and Cigar of the Month clubs. Click here and use Coupon Code: GMC$10 to get $10 off any 12 month prepaid order,.
3. Blu-Ray Discs
Has the guy on your list upgraded to a Blu-Ray disc player? Even though he may have some of his favorite movies on standard DVD, buying the Blu-Ray versions of these movies will be worth it. This is especially true for classic action movies such as James Bond flicks, the Star Wars saga or Clint Eastwood movies. See if any of his favorites are on Blu-Ray and then help him add to his film collection. Amazon.com has hundreds of Blu-Ray Discs starting at just $10.95.
4. A poker set
If the guy on your list loves to play cards, he’ll appreciate a full poker set. These sets come with several decks of cards, professional chips and other poker accessories. This way he won’t have to dig through drawers to find his deck of cards every time he wants to play a game with his friends. You can also purchase these with portable card table tops that fit over any dining room table. Check the prices on Overstock. I've purchased this item in the past at a significant discount, and Overstock has great coupons you can use, updated frequently here.
5. Gadgets and new technology
If your gift giving budget is a bit large, consider buying him an electronic gadget. For example, there are new weather predicting machines that will let the user know what the weather will be like outside on any given day. You can also buy a universal remote, sonic toothbrush or other useful gadget. Many online stores cater to "gadget geeks" and you can find a wide variety of suitable presents.
6. Gift certificates
When all else fails, you can always give a gift certificate. This way the guy on your list can get exactly what he needs. Make it a bit more personal by choosing a gift certificate from a specialty shop, such as a photo store, a computer store or a golf pro shop. Buy a gift certificate based on his interests and he’ll appreciate it more. You can also give him Gifts.com Gift Card, which will allow him to choose from more than 100 premiere stores, restaurants, and experiences. These gift cards are quick, convenient and can be emailed, so they are perfect for last-minute shopping. (Available in denominations of $25.00 to $2000.00.)
