Buying Christmas gifts for an uncle can be tricky, depending on how close you are to him. If you know his interests and hobbies it might be a bit easier to pick out something acceptable. However, there are a few things that can cover many types of men in the gift department, while still not breaking your wallet.
Who doesn't need a hand getting out of bed in the morning? Although you may be limited to the already set decor of his bedroom, there are many alarm clocks out there for any style. There are quirky clocks for the young at heart, or sophisticated chrome and black ones for the more modern man. There are even alarm clocks available that are water-powered, eliminating the need for batteries altogether.
Check out the fancy import section of the grocery store or cigar shop in your area to find an interesting and unique gift for your uncle. First find out what he really enjoys, whether it's hot sauce, mustard, wasabi, steak sauce or something else entirely. Maybe he has a sweet tooth and adores chocolate hazelnut spread or maple syrup. Surprise him with a specialty condiment just for him, or even an assortment. The next time he's putting hot sauce on his eggs he'll think of you.
Most people like listening to music, so it's a safe bet as a gift if you're stuck for other ideas. The trick is to check out his music collection first, to avoid giving him an album he already has. One way to do this is to buy him a gift certificate for a music store or for downloading music online. However, there are other music alternatives such as new headphones, mp3 player, tickets to a concert or a book for CDs.
