Shopping for women can be tricky. Probably the safest thing to do to avoid disappointing the ladies in your life with gifts they don’t like is to give gift cards. With a gift card the special ladies in your life can choose from hundreds of clothing and beauty brands. Nordstrom caters to all ages, so you can give a Nordstrom gift card to your grand-mother or your eight year old niece and everyone in between. This way they can buy something they actually want.

Prefer to give something boxed?

Clothes make practical gifts; but of course they don’t necessarily make fun gifts. Your special guys might not show a whole lot of enthusiasm upon opening your gifts to find clothing items inside the boxes; but you’ll find, provided the clothes you buy are of good quality and style, that they will come to be glad for the new clothes. Of course if you can afford to buy the high tech gadgets in addition to some stocking stuffer clothing items then by all means indulge your guys.

Don’t consider clothes gifts?

You can never go wrong with a good pair of sunglasses. Whether the special guy on your list is your husband, boyfriend, father, brother, son (for those old enough to have a teen or adult son), or your best friend, a pair of sunglasses will always make for a useful gift. If you’re going to buy sunglasses for your special guy you probably want to pick up a pair of Ray Ban’s or Oakley’s, possibly Gucci or other designer label.

Other options for gifts for the special guys in your life include the basics such as knit hats, socks, scarves, gloves, wallets. These are boring but practical stocking stuffers. You don’t want to just give a hat or a pair of socks or a scarf. Fill a stocking with a few of these items in addition to getting a main gift. Get more gifts for him ideas at
