Gift suggestions for a man.

So the holidays are coming and I want to get someone a gift for Hannukkah. What I thought would be cool would be a gift that you put together and comes in pieces so I give a piece each day and at the end it builds a bigger gift. Ideas? I thought maybe a bathroom set or a desk set but something less utilitarian

Re: Gift suggestions for a man.

Men love bathroom sets. Maybe a soap dish, then a toothbrush holder, etc

check out mancrates.com... looks like a cool idea but it's not exactly the "process" you're trying to achieve.

Re: Gift suggestions for a man.

It probably depends more on what the end result is, rather than just the process of assembling it. What hobbies or interests does this 'someone' have? For example, if I received a part of a charcoal grill every day and then got to put it together, I'd end up with a charcoal grill, something I'd never use. But, if I received part of a Fender Telecaster every day, then I'd end up with a Fender Telecaster (which I probably wouldn't use much either, since I already have two Fender Telecasters. But, I digress...)

Re: Gift suggestions for a man.

I agree with wendersfan here... there are sports guys, nerdy guys, outdoorsy guys, artsy guys, etc.

Only one thing is for sure... this is a terrible Hannukkah gift for a man:

Especially if he has to assemble it himself.

True, and I'd suggest attaching the anus last.

A 500 part Lego set. A piece a day will cover next holiday season as well.

Re: Gift suggestions for a man.

Most men aren't that hard to figure out for gifts. We don't tend to play the same kind of games that women frequently do with what they want for presents. Something we can actually use like an electric razor will never be turned down.

Dvd's, Blu or otherwise.... but I guess that is crap with the demise of the disc based media. Get him some colorful marbles and knee pads.

Which brings us back to the anal beads and blow jobs.
