River Street Sweets

If you know a guy with a sweetooth, River Street Sweets has all kinds of treats that are perfect for gift giving. The Holiday Grab basket comes in a few sizes and includes world famous pralines, milk chocolate bear claws, crunchy glazed pecans, hand stretched peanut brittle and a fluffy nougat log roll. I wasn’t familiar with most of these treats but the basket was thoroughly enjoyed at my house. Everything was very sweet and had a great texture. It would be great for a man with a sweet tooth.

johnny cash quarto knows

The Resurrection of Johnny Cash from Quarto Knows would make a nice gift for Johnny Cash fans. Most books, documentaries or articles that you’ll find about Johnny Cash focus on his earlier success from the 50s through the 70s. The Resurrection of Johnny Cash focuses on his life during his albums Hurt, Redemption and American Recordings which is a time period that isn’t focused on as much. As a result, even fans who have read several books on Johnny Cash will likely find new information in this book.

Frank by Barney Frank

Frank by Barney Frank is a book about the life of congressman Barney Frank. It was just released in 2015 so it’s a great gift idea this year for men interested in politics in general or specifically in Barney Frank’s life and career. Barney Frank was the first openly gay congressman so it would also likely interest those interested in the LGBT movement.

  • Amy Baker

    Why are men so hard? Every year I get the women done…even OVER done because well, it’s easy to buy for women . I LOVE all 3 of those subscription boxes you recommend….the tackle is PERFECT for my brother, the Fashion Stork is PERFECT for my hubby….and will keep me from trying to put together outfits for him and the mall and the Butcher Box is PERFECT for my brother in law who loves to grill wow! Thanks for handling the men in my life with these recommendations!

  • Anne Taylor

    What a fantastic list of gifts for men! My husband’s favourite would be the Johnny Cash book! He adored him!

  • Marnie G (Derrick Todd)

    The Butcher Box is a GREAT gift. We’ve given this to my Father-In-Law and he absolutely loved it. You can’t go wrong here as long as they enjoy eating meat.

  • Deb E

    There are some good ideas here. My dad only wants homemade goodies from me and hates it if I buy him anything but he’s the only one that way so I still have to get guy gifts. I go with safe gifts like food, that I know they will use. It’s harder if you haven’t seen someone in a while too, to know what they like. I like the Kit-Cat Clock!

  • Amber Ludwig

    I am impressed!! To be honest… I think men are the hardest to shop for!! But these are all great ideas Ive never thought of!!! Im really loving that butcher box!! My hubby would really enjoy it!!
