He likes to get good presents too!
Men can be impossible to shop for-particularly during the holidays. Cologne is too expected, tools are too casual and ties are too boring. Finding something he'll appreciate and use is a tricky task. After scouring the malls and online shops, we present you with eight gifts he'll love, and most importantly, not want to return.
Powerbag Messenger Laptop Bag
A bag with form and function
If your man loves his gadgets, he'll adore this messenger bag that not only transports his gear in style, it also charges all his devices on the go! That's right, this bag comes with an internal battery system that can simultaneously charge up to four devices at a time, so your man never has to worry about finding a power source for his Smartphone, tablet or MP3 player. Priced under $100, this is one high-tech gift that won't break the bank. Available at Best Buy.
Macallan Single Malt ScotchThe scotch lover's scotch
For the man who appreciates the finer things in life, skip the new fancy blazer or loafers and instead surprise him with a bottle of aged single-malt scotch. A bottle of 12-year-old Macallan will cost just $42. If you truly want to impress, you can drop another $50 and get 17-year-old scotch. We suggest going with the 12-year-old scotch and throwing in a couple great cigars. He'll think you're the greatest gal ever! Available at BevMo!
The NBA is tipping off its delayed season on December 25-just in time for the holidays. If the man on your list is a sports fanatic, tickets to this first game is a must-have. Check out NBA.com or Stubhub.com to see the selection of seats still available for the season opener. And don't worry, if the first game is sold out or too expensive, he will love tickets to any of this season's games.
Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch
His own reading Nook
The updated Nook is a great gift for the guy whose nose is always buried in a book or magazine. The latest generation of the Barnes & Noble e-reader is faster, lighter, and thinner than its predecessor and costs an unbeatable $99. Plus, the new Nook has a two-month battery life (that's an entire month more than the Kindle!) With a library of over 2.5 million books, this is a dream come true for your book lover.
Jawbone ERA Bluetooth Headset
The best headset ever
This little toy will really impress him. It's the only headset on the market equipped with a military-grade noise-cancelling technology to ensure the least amount of background noise possible during calls. The design is pretty cool too. It's a bit pricey at $129 but it'll be worth it when you see his face light up as you describe all the "military-grade technology."
Polaroid Pogo Instant Mobile Printer
Instant printing on the go
This pocket-sized wonder hooks up to a cell phone or digital camera and instantly prints photos. No joke. You can instantly print any photo -no matter where you are. Plus, there are no ink cartridges to worry about it. With a price tag of $59.99, it's a perfect gift for the guy who loves to have fun. Available at Polaroid.com.
The next generation of entertainment centers

And did we mention it's wireless? Available at Apple stores and online.
For the serious sports fan
If he watches SportsCenter every morning before work, you know he'll love a year subscription to ESPN Magazine. And there's a special holiday price: two subscriptions for the price of one. For $29.99 you can get your man a subscription as well as your dad, brother, or boss. It's a win-win! Available at ESPN.com.
