Gold Toe Socks
Ok, this article is all about great gifts. So listen closely, I am begging you NOT to buy socks. Why, because socks are not a great gift... but.. if your Mom told you “get your father some socks!”…or if you are getting them anyways Gold Toe is a great brand known for quality and selection. My favorites are the Casual Crew. You can find them at most department stores, or online and they are reasonably priced.
Ok, back to the great gifts. You like the underdog? Well here is a razor company that is taking on the big brand names with their online store. Harry’s Razors are made in Germany at their own factory. They feature a 5 blade design that gives a close shave. The “Truman” starter kit that includes a handle, 3 blades, a travel cover and the best shave gel you will ever use is just $15! You can often hunt down a coupon code for $3 to $5 off. I love the razors and the shave gel is fantastic. They even have a shave plans that you can join where they make replacement razors are easy to order. Plus Harry's razors are lower in costs when compared to Gillette, Bic or Schick. Visit www.harrys.com for more info.
Fix a Flat
This is a great gift for anyone you know who drives a car! It is a quick and simple solution for a flat tire. The compressed air and a liquid foam patch that will inflate MOST tires and patch the hole at the same time. Your guy will be back on the road and on his way in no time. Great stocking stuffer. On sale at your local Sears store now, just 8.98.
Victorinox Swiss Army Knife
So you don't want to spring for a Leatherman- but need a nice gift for your mailman or a holiday swap. There are dozens of styles to choose from. I prefer the Victorinox brand, made in Switzerland. For about a $10 to $25 you can get a pocket knife- made in Switzerland with a lifetime warranty?!! Every guy in your life should have one of these! He can throw one in the glove box or attach to his keyring (9.99 at Target!)
Need some Power (Jumper Cables/Battery Pack/Crank Charger)
With frigid New England weather this is a necessity for anyone with a car. (My wife's 2015 Sienna just needed a jump this past week). How about this Die Hard Gold 16 ft 225 Amp pair for $19.99 at your local Sears? Or you want to go high tech- try this $45 Half Minute Power Mini Battery Pack Jump Starter on Amazon (it can charge your cell phone too- and gets 4 stars!) Or if you really lose ALL POWER how about this crank charger for your phone with flashlight AM/FM Radio?
