  • Can’t seem to figure out what to get your husband (or your friends’ husbands) for Christmas?  Don’t worry!  Here are some gift suggestions a man will definitely appreciate.

     

    Johnson Elektrik ICON Pocket and Professional Series Tools
    For the handyman on the go, this 4 ½” tool is a must.  Resembling a pair of pliers, tool extensions fold out of the legs like a Swiss knife.  Has at least 10 different tools and some versions have an LED flashlight built in.  It also comes in a nylon case with a Velcro seal.  The 6” Professional series comes with 11 detachable screwdriver heads.

    Relax DNA Therapy by Tangle
    Does he want to quit smoking? Help him out. This colorful, twisty doodad provides an outlet for nervous energy and the makers even claim it’s helpful for quitting smoking.  It’s even more satisfying that popping a fresh sheet of bubble wrap.  He won’t be able to keep his hands off it.

    Price: P200+ 

     

    Tool Logic T1 Series Tech Light
    Another utility tool, the Tech Light is the size of a matchbox and has a sleek, cool design.  The LED flashlight comes with two tiny screwdrivers, a ballpen, a belt clip and keyring.

    WL Lenk Turbo-Lite
    Guys love playing with fire… literally.  This miniature but powerful butane lighter is like a welding torch and can reach up to 1300°C (2400°F).  A safety lock mechanism prevents it from accidentally discharging.  It’s ideal for camping, hobbies and crafts, home repairs and lighting cigars.  Butane gas sold separately.

    HMDX Speaker-On-The-Go
    Great for travel and for livening up a quiet evening, this portable speaker assembly houses two speakers in a case with a webbed pocket that will snugly fit your iPod.  The audio quality is pretty good and your man can either chill with his fave tunes or hear the satisfying sound of exploding bad guys on his PSP.  2 AA-sized batteries are all you need for a party on the go!

    Houdini Wine Preserver by Metrokane
    Budding and veteran oenophiles will appreciate this gift.  The Houdini comes with a vacuum pump and two bottle stoppers that will ensure wine preservation.  The vacuum pump can remove any air from an opened wine bottle and the airtight stoppers will keep his Chardonnays, Merlots and Cabernet Sauvignons from going flat.

    To help your guy keep his junk in order, this helpful heavy-duty organizer has 25 little drawers that can store anything—nuts, bolts, golf tees, airsoft pellets, lead miniatures, electronic parts, small dead animals (just kidding!), etc.
