Top 6 Thoughtful Gifts for a Man

By

It's not always easy to buy a gift for a man. Most don't get excited by unwrapping a beautiful package that holds clothing or accessories inside. But they certainly appreciate gifts that do stuff. Choose any of these to help him realize how well you know him -- and how much you care.

1. iPod Touch

The iPod Touch does everything an iPhone does, without having to change your phone plan. Depending on how much memory you choose (8, 16, and 32 gigabyte models are available), he can stash between 1,750 and 7,000 songs, watch movies and play games on the widescreen display, and download his favorite Apps.

2. Universal Remote

If he's got a TV, a speaker system, a DVD player, Tivo and/or cable, he may also have enough remote controls to confuse a NASA engineer. Not to mention that the one he wants is often the one that's missing. Help him coordinate his entertainment by converting to a universal remote, which can operate all his IR-electronics from one keypad.

3. Power Tools

Most men are hard-wired to fix things, especially when they have the right tools at hand. Surprise yours with a circular saw, cordless drill, or other implement that will inspire him to build those shelves or make the repairs your place needs. Don't forget to reward him affectionately when the job is done.

4. A New Wallet

How long has he been carrying that same wallet? If the answer is, "too long," consider replacing it with a smart-looking new one. And don't forget to slip a picture of you inside.

5. Sharp Aquos LCD TV

If you're feeling flush, there's nothing that will light up a man's eyes like a new flatscreen LCD TV monitor. As a gift, Sharp Aquos provides exceptional viewing — aside from when he's admiring you, of course.

6. Canon Vixia Digital Camcorder

This is the camcorder everyone wants now. Lightweight because it has no moving parts and records everything on a removable flash memory, it also boasts a Canon lens. Record your most romantic moments and memorable trips with it. You'll never have to replace tape in the middle of a shoot. The unit, which fits in the hand, can also be used as a still digital camera.
