Very thoughtful breakdown of gifts for men for Christmas!
CAREY @ WISERDOLLAR.COM says
GREAT LIST! ONE ADDITIONAL ITEM THAT POPS IN MY HEAD IS DRILL BITS. IT SEEMS THAT EVERY YEAR I END UP BREAKING SEVERAL OF THE SMALLER ONES AND COULD USE A NEW SET! SO IF THE MAN IS A DIY’ER THIS MIGHT BE A GOOD ITEM TO ADD.
Another great idea, Carey! Thanks for that, I think a lot of men would love to receive that as a gift.
Work gloves and socks are such awesome overlooked stocking stuffers!!! I seem to ask for these every year as I have a tendency to go through these quickly. Thanks for sharing these awesome ideas!!!
Yep, they are always needed! Thanks for stopping by!
