Each holiday season I inevitably find myself searching for gifts that the men in my family will actually enjoy. For some reason, furry suede slippers never do well. And, you can only give a man a tie and a set of cuff links so many times before he starts to think you want him to spend more time at work.
But anyone with a Y chromosome wants to think he's useful at home as well as the office. So, whether you need to encourage the men in your life to do a little more work around the house, or you want to reward them for all the picture-hanging and deck-building they can't seem to get enough of, a handyman-style gift is just the thing to put a smile on your dudes' faces this year. I've collected some items I know they'll love, and perhaps laugh about (overalls). But I also recommend checking out your local hardware shop and some old standbys like Duluth Trading and L.L. Bean. If you're working with a beginner handyman, the ideal gift is a sturdy toolbox or bag filled with all of the essential household tools. Also, listen closely, there may be some sort of power tool your very own handyman is already aching for. To see my suggestions, read more.
