A lot of women out there are looking for cool things to buy a man. Let’s face it, men are notoriously awful to buy gifts for. Especially for birthdays or around the holidays. Every holiday season, us men always expect for you ladies to give us a specific list that we can just run through, step by step, to make your holiday dreams come true. But when it comes to us reciprocating that for you, it just doesn’t happen. You end up getting nothing out of us. We may give you the normal underwear or socks to get us. Sometimes a new tool or something. But not anything that will knock our socks off. I know ladies, it’s not fair. That’s why I came up with a few ideas of cool things to buy a man.

Cool Things To Buy a Man

The way to buy for a man is to know what category that particular man would enjoy the most. Let’s face it, not all men are handymen (this writer is a PRIME example). So buying the latest tool that does a zillion different things all in one might not be the best buy for that type of man. At the same time, you may not have a man that enjoys the hunting and fishing type of thing that a lot of others do. So in order to find the perfect gift for your man, you really need to know what your man likes. In other words, don’t go in looking for a specific thing. You’re liable to drive yourself batty doing that. Go looking for a specific category. There are cool things to buy a man in every category. The key is to hone in on them and go from there.

So if you are shopping for a tech nerd guy, you don’t want to go shopping at Bass Pro or Gander Mountain. You’re going to want to stop by an Apple store or a place like Brookstone. The stuff they have in that store is incredible! Especially for a tech geek. Now if your man is more of a redneck, outdoorsy type, that’s when you go into Gander Mountain or Bass Pro Shops. There are plenty of things in there that will win you brownie points with your hillbilly hunk of man.

Tampa Bay Buccanneers MugFor guys that are into sports, the obvious is any sporting good store. Also, what is their favorite team? I guarantee if you get them something with their favorite team on it, they will cherish it for life. I still use a Tampa Bay Buccaneers mug for my coffee every morning because my wife got it for me when we first started dating and I love it. Another great place is Lids. I go through hats more than I go through underwear. And I need a new hat every year because I am superstitious about my teams. So that is an excellent place to look for the sports fan.

So if you don’t want to do any legwork at all, here are some awesome gifts for men that you can pick up that will make you look like a rockstar:
