These are decidedly in the manly man category, full of tools, camping gear, and other random stuff that’s “just cool”.
The gifts below are ones my husband has actually received and loved, probably mostly because he picked them out himself!
The guys on my Christmas shopping list are the toughest. It seems like they already have everything! If you have the same
