Women often get a bad rap for being high maintenance or difficult to shop for, but if our boyfriends (especially mine) are any indication, men can be just as picky when it comes to gifts. Luckily you don't have to wander around the men's department at Bloomingdale's for 6 hours trying to find the perfect gift, because we have a thorough list of items your man will love. And, no, it doesn't involve giftcards or cologne!
Beer/Wine of the Month Club Membership
I'm yet to meet a man who doesn't love beer, wine or both. With a monthly membership, your man gets a new beer or wine every month, sure to satisfy his need for a cold one after a long work week. Check out Craft Beer Club
Guys don't even realize what they're missing until they've slept on 1200 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets.
Sure, this may not be a traditional holiday gift, but it's certainly a gift that will keep on giving, and I can promise you this: one night in those sheets and he will thank (and love you) forever! The key is finding the most soft, luxurious sheets possible. Go for Egyptian cotton or sateen cotton.

A Day at the Spa
Even though guys hate to admit it, they love to be pampered and groomed. (Just look at your guys face when you rub his head and run your fingers through his hair.) There's no better way to de-stress after a long work week than at the spa. Get him a full body message (including a head and foot rub). Opt for a spa that offers hot stone massages and use of the steam room and hot tub facilities for the day. If you really want to make it extra special, get a couple's package and relax together. This is the ultimate gift! Check out Spaweek.com

Poke around and act like you're in the market for one for yourself. Get his opinion on what he likes and then get it for him. This gift is pretty fail-proof!
I know a tootbrush seems a little silly, but trust me, if he doesn't already have a Sonicare, he needs one and doesn't even know it! This toothbrush will change his life. Literally.
