I guess men's opinions would be best, but if you ladies have ever given a man a gift that just beat all, that would be helpful too.

The man got a promotion. That he worked hard for. And he's a great father, and we have a special anniversary type date coming up, and he's a good husband, and I get to stay home and play with my kids all day and goof on the computer, and well.... he deserves giftage.

I might just go get him a gift certificate to Harbor Freight. Which is some weird sort of big lots type place that only carries stinky tools and welding machines and stuff I don't care about but that he adores... but I feel like a gc is a copout.

Any suggestions?

Each man is an individual, and none of us know this individual better than you, I'm sure. You know what he likes. If you don't, ask his friends, or his brothers if he has any that are close enough to know.

If none of those pan out, what is he interested in? Some men love computer-related stuff, electronic gadgets, etc, while others would prefer sports gear, or video games, or a really nice pair of shoes, etc.

My family thinks big when it comes to gifts like that, so it's usually something such as car, big screen tv. But I know that's weird. You could get him a game pass for a team (what ever team he likes, if it's hometown). I think that's a cool idea. Massage hours for people who work hard. (personal fav) My dad LOVES the homemade creative gifts more than anything else. Specially somthing from me and my brothers. Treat him to a nice resturant dinner. Have something nice engraved for him. Like pens, rings, etc. I'm not good at ideas, but it was worth a shot. Good luck with the gift giving
