Gift Guide: Perfect Picks for the Guys

I don’t know about you guys, but I always have the hardest time picking out great gifts for guys. Ladies, no problem. Kids, no problem. My dog, definitely no problem. But I get completely stumped when trying to come up with cool, creative ideas for my brothers, dad and boyfriend. (It probably doesn’t help that when I ask what they want for Christmas or birthdays, all they tell me are gift cards and socks. Sigh, men.)

In any case, I got my creative juices flowing this holiday season—and may or may not have consulted a certain someone named Harrison—to come up with some fun ideas that every guy on your list will love, and at three different price points! Check ’em out:
