The Mister is a different kind of gift receiver, as well. The minute he finds out that I bought him a gift, he promptly asks me if it's a toy. On Christmas Eve, when he is opening presents, he rips through the packages faster than a hyperactive four-year-old. The boxes that look like they may contain clothes are left to the bottom of the pile. To the Mister, it's all about the almighty toy.
So, in homage to the Mister, I offer you a few man toys for your consideration if your guy is a fan of toys, as well.
Mister, as you are skimming this post, keep this in mind.
Sweaters are cool too.
For the traveler in your life that doesn't have much luck when it comes to checking his luggage, this bag tracker will take all of the stress out of worrying about not having clean underwear or a toothbrush for an important meeting.
There is one caveat, though.
He's got to remember to pack the tracker.
Would you prefer to have your selfies taken farther than your arms can reach? Nobody wants to see your pores or what you had for lunch stuck between your teeth. This selfie pen controls your iPhone camera with the click of a button.
For the camper in your life - a flashlight AND handwarmer.
That's what I call a dynamic duo.
For the chef who isn't quite sure when the meat is completely done, this thermometer can let him know what's happening on the grill while he's got his feet up watching the game.
After receiving all the praise for the delicious dinner, the chef can save his elbow grease for the TV clicker and put this automatic grill cleaner to good use.
For the grill sergeant in the family that believes that there is a place for everything and everything in its place, this apron is sure to be a home run. It will keep him hydrated, as well.
For the guy who hates to do yard work, an automatic lawn mower will be the hit of the holiday. Be sure to keep the pets inside.
I smell daiquiris and instant popularity.
Now all he needs is a captive audience.
If you're dating a guy who doesn't have enough energy to stir the cream in his coffee, the first thing you should do is buy this self-stirring mug for him. The second thing you should do is to drop him like a hot potato.
There is no guessing or rounding out numbers with this digital tape measure. My Mister has every measuring device and leveler known to man. But when it comes to hanging pictures, he chooses to "eye" it. Our walls look like it, too.
For the young Dad who doesn't want to step on a lone Lego or Barbie shoe, these slippers will help him step in the right direction.
And last but certainly not least, for the guy who means well but has a bad aim, this potty light will save you a lot of work.
By the way... the Mister brought home one of these for me two days before my colonoscopy. My guy spoils me rotten. I thanked him by calling his doctor and booking his colonoscopy the following week.
What was the best toy that you bought your Mister?
Until next time...
