When we say "it's the thought that counts," the "thought" implies more than just remembering to buy any gift at all. Let's admit that as much as we love our guys and say we'll value any gifts they get us, there's a little disappointment when the pretty package under the tree actually contains a scarf or gift card. Same goes for him, instead of a generic tie, lead buy example and buy a gift that actually suits him. We've done the dirty work for you: here are great finds for every type of guy, and for every budget. Here you'll find gifts for the tech guy, the sports guy, the artsy guy, the pop culture guy, the foodie guy and the rocker guy.
The Tech Guy
Bargain: He's got more gadgets than he knows what to do with, which means keeping them all charged is likely to crash a circuit. This streamlined charging station not only accounts for the dearth of outlets; it solves the problem of all those cords as well. A great decoration for his desk or dresser, it's form meets function with a cool look and all the charging he'll need, plus storage for all the gadgets that go with his gadgets.
