3 Killer Christmas Gift Ideas For The Man In Your Life

Dec 10, 2007
Guys can be a little tough when it comes to gift buying. On the one hand, they are difficult to really upset with a gift because they can appreciate a gift for the thought, practical application, and just for it being something they truly would enjoy. For example, a guy would be happy if their wife gave them a book of scrapbooked events, most would think it would be extremely thoughtful to take the time to do that. At the same time, a pair of underwear and some undershirts would be well received as well, after all, who doesn't need extras right? But there is that third type of gift that you could get a guy that would really knock him out and make his day. These are the gifts where they are usually so impressive that will make him brag to his friends about how great of a wife or girlfriend he has. Here are 3 great ideas for Christmas gifts that fall into that 3rd category.

The first is something that every guy dreams of and will continue to dream of until it's his. And that's a bar in the basement for him and his friends to hang out at. While this can be an expensive gift, it can be done on a budget and is sure to be something that will make his day. There is nothing like sitting around a bar in a friends basement watching a game, playing darts, and just hanging out. And it's more about the fact that you are giving him that area that's all his that is important. As time goes on, you can have ideas for more gifts as well, since there are a lot of things that you need after you get a bar. So this is the big gift that will seed ideas for smaller gifts down the line, definitely a winner!

The second thing falls in the practical and the 'knock his socks off' category and that's a flatscreen TV. This is something that's getting more popular as days go by, but if the guy in your life doesn't have one yet, this is your chance. At least in my case, it's the type of gift that you just want so bad, but you need to justify it in your mind for a certain period of time before you make the purchase. Just go ahead and justify it for him, it'll make him feel a lot better knowing that it was a gift and he didn't need to agonize in his mind before he made the purchase.

The last thing is something for the spring and summer months, and that's a cornhole set customized with their favorite college or pro team. You may not be familiar with cornhole, but in a few years you will. Cornhole is a game that involves 2 boards and 8 bags and it's the ultimate backyard game. Not only for the backyard, it's becoming a staple in just about every tailgate in the country now. Buying him the game and customizing it for his college team is definitely something that will make his day and be proud to show off.

So there you have it, all the gift ideas you need to make this one the most memorable one yet!
