Holiday shopping can be difficult enough, but when you've got a difficult man to shop for.... ay yay yay.
Oftentimes we find that when someone is hard to shop for, it's usually because they already have everything. No doubt this is going to make rounding up those Holiday gifts even harder, and when shopping the malls this holiday season, it can even seem that much more overwhelming when faced with all those gifts that line every single corner!
Just because he is a bit on the picky side doesn't mean you have to go all extravagant when shopping for that perfect Holiday Gift. Sometimes keeping it simple still conveys the message that you put some thought into his gift without getting all caught up in the trendy gifts of the season and going completely overboard!
For the Sports Lover
What man doesn't love sports memorabilia from his favorite team? He's probably already got that team shirt or hat, so go for something unique, and extra points for adding in food or beer (another great gift for nearly any man) Pick up a fun NFL-themed popcorn tin sure to please the pickiest of man on your Holiday shopping list! He can enjoy some yummy Man Popcorn Favorites, including Kettle Corn, Cheesy Cheddar, and Caramel Popcorn, while watching the Sunday game, cheering on his team in style! Available from Gourmet Gift Baskets for fans of: New England Patriots, Denver Broncos, Dallas Cowboys, Pittsburgh Steelers, Philadelphia Eagles, Seattle Seahawks, New York Giants, Green Bay Packers or the New Orleans Saints.
For the Food and Drink Lover
Unless he absolutely enjoys no food or drink whatsoever, you've got a hit on your hand when you wrap up some yummy treats and drinks. If he's got a sweet tooth, go for some yummy chocolatey treats like the Let it Snow Brownie Box which comes with a huge variety of uniquely flavored brownies to please even the pickiest of taste buds!
A beer bucket is always a classic, which combines not only some fall beer favorites but also some salty or sweet treats to fit his taste and keep the party going!

Even if he's not exactly what you'd call a lover of fitness, New Years is right around the corner, and weight loss still weighs in as the #1 New Years Resolution. Once the holiday sweets and Egg Nog have been left behind for the new year, help spark up some good-for-him motivation by gifting him a helpful app that puts the focus on eating right. EduPlated links dieters with dietitians that meet their specific needs to start a diet and/or stick with it.

For the Man With Style (or who may be needing a little help)
Got a little extra money to splurge? Spoil the man in your life with a custom fit tailored suit.
A suit is a classic and one that most men will get plenty of use out of for many years to come! It's no secret that men often times tend to not be the greatest shoppers and can be a bit lazy by simply picking up a suit off the rack instead of getting a custom tailored fit suit that will up his style game and his confidence too!
He might not see the value in a well-fitted suit either but will be sure to be pleasantly surprised when he sees the difference once he steps foot into that flawless-fitting trouser and suit jacket.

Keep it simple, stick to sure hits, and if you've got the money to spend, pick him up that confidence-boosting gift that he will truly love and be able to use for many years to come!
