Holiday shopping is always hard. But buying gifts for someone who is difficult to shop for is particularly tortuous and, well, damn near impossible. Keywords: Nearly impossible.
Sure, a hard-to-shop-for man may be the most dreaded name on your holiday list every year. Here’s looking at you, dad. But there’s something undeniably satisfying about seeing that same dude open your well-thought-out, unique gift and actually smile. And that’s not even to mention the satisfaction of seeing him use that gift again and again and again. All you have to do is find the perfect gift to make that happen.
Of course, finding that present is easier said than done. But that’s why the internet is the best thing since sliced bread. Thousands upon thousands of gift options are just a Google search away.

All of the options can get overwhelming when all you want is to find something that fits your budget and the particular personality of that loved one who has everything. If only you had a curated list of the best-of-the-best gifts for any hard-to-shop-for man…
