Ahhhh, the men in our life. All of our fathers, brothers, grandfathers and of course, the most important–husbands–what would we do without them? No time like the holidays to show that we appreciate them, but they can be so dang-hard to shop for. Breezy Mama gives you the scoop on some of the most creative gifts for the most difficult recipients. And the bet part? Only one is over $50.00. . .
What male doesn’t like to BBQ? You can give this to any guy on your list and he’ll be a happier man. No ordinary grill, this beauty is made for a life of travel, and folds up when not in use. Much easier than those small tabletop BBQ’s. It runs on gas, making it a cinch to cook when you’re (I mean when he’s) ready. To order your Coleman Road Trip Grill, $154.98, click here.
A man can get a grip around these. Made from recycled wine bottles, these tumblers are big enough to quench your guy’s thirst–whether his drink of choice is water, a frosty beer, or something in-between. To order your Green Wine Bottle Tumblers, $36.00, click here.
For the globe-trotter, this map is the ideal gift. He can scratch off each place he’s visited to reveal a pop of color and local facts about each destination. At 32.2″ wide by 22.9″ tall, this map will look fantastic anywhere–from office to man cave. To order your Scratch Map, $24.00, click here.
For those men who like their tunes while working outside or laying on the beach, this radio is a must. Both water and sand resistant, your man can listen to the game on the radio, and when it’s over, plug in his iPhone or iPod to play music. To order your SunnyLIFE – Beach Sounds Radio ($39.99) click here. (Site is taking pre-orders now–product will ship December 10.)
For the gardener, these sustainably harvested birch wood stakes are the answer. Both practical and cool looking, he can label his newly seeded beds with style (instead of just staking the packaging, which ends up disintegrating and looking a bit trashy (no pun intended)). The included white chinagraph pencil won’t wash-off in the rain and is guaranteed to last through many planting seasons. To order your Blackboard Garden Labels, $14.00, click here.
Got yourself a sports enthusiast and competition lover? This portable ping pong set fits on any table (up to 72″ long) and is sure to get hearts pumping and people laughing. To order your Portable Ping Pong Set, $40.00, click here.
Do you have a string strumming musician on your hands? Make sure he never runs out of picks–guitar picks that is. This punch will turn any unused card (i.e. credit card, grocery card, gym membership) into a customized guitar pick. Give one of these babies and your man will never be singing the blues. To order your Guitar Pick Punch, $25.00, click here.
And finally, give your male the gift of comfort. Replace those dress shoes with this pair of oh-so-cool leather Chuck Taylor’s. Since it’s a tennis shoe, it will have all the comfiness he needs, but with the dressiness of leather. To order your Converse Men’s All Star Chuck Taylor Premiere Leather Ox , $47.90, click here.
