Great gifts for dudes



Women's shopping 101: Bling never fails. Men's shopping 101: If only it were so easy.

Last week, we brought you the gadget edition of the Boyfriend Gift Guide. By popular demand, we're back with more ideas. What to buy the artist dude? The sports fanatic? The drunk? There's something for (almost) everybody on this wish list:

Jokercufflink_4Mr. Fancy Pants: Cuff links are the rare male fashion accessory. They work with everything from a tux to a sharp shirt and jeans. Best of all, you don't need to know his size or fit. Nordstrom's selection that includes these fun jokester cuff links by Juicy Couture for the poker aficionado.

Mr. Activity: Whether it's the soccer field or garage band practice, some guys just can't sit still. So gift a good time! Try concert or sports tickets -- or a season pass to the theater. We've shared experience packages and dinner-date combos. Just remember to factor in the costs for two -- unless you want the guy going alone.

Mr. Commute: Does your beloved complain about his commute? Try satellite radio. He'll chill to jazz during the next pileup on the Howard Frankland. Better yet, you won't have to run to sports bars when his hometown NFL team or fav college game isn't broadcast locally. Just send him to his car.

Alcohawk_2Mr. Artsy Fartsy: Indulge fine taste with the arts lover. Consider commissioning a work of art for him. It can be pricey, but something he'll keep for ever. Better still, if you live together, it's a gift for you too.

Mr. Bar Hopper: Ok, if you think a guy you know would like this gift, maybe it's time for an intervention. From a recent Bed, Bath and Beyond mailer: The Alcohawk breath alcohol screener.
