If you are looking for stocking stuffers for your husband, grown son, boyfriend or another man in your life, it can be difficult to find just the right things. Candy and trinkets are not necessarily manly, but you don't want his stocking to be half empty, either.
Consider his hobbies and spare-time activities. For example, if he loves working with tools, stuff his stocking with a small collection of drill bits.
Think about what he needs. If he spends half the winter out on the slopes, a good pair of gloves and a few tubes of lip balm might work well. If he's always searching for something to write with, buy him a pack of pens or have one engraved with his name.
Reflect on his favorites. If he's a sports fan, get him things associated with his favorite teams. Or buy him a magazine related to something he loves to do, like cooking or off-road trucking.
Make him laugh with a gag gift. Tuck a fake winning scratch-off lottery ticket deep into his stocking or a small bag of coal (pieces of black licorice in a drawstring bag).
Let him treat himself. If his mornings simply don't start until he has had his espresso, stuff his stocking with coffee-house gift cards. If he loves to rent movies the day they are released, load him up with video-store gift cards.
Tips & Warnings
- Start a tradition. Every year, wrap up an ornament, a funky tie or something else that would be fun for you both.
