50 Gifts Under $50: For Him (#41-50)

The final installment is here! I always find it much more difficult to find presents for guys than girls, and I usually resort to gift certificates or something equally impersonal. Fear not fellow are 10 budget-friendly gifts under $50 for the guys in your life.

Remember the rules:
  • It can cost no more than $50 before sales tax.
  • It must be something fairly luxe and fall into the category of an item that the recipient may wish to have but out of practicality would never spend their own money on.
  • It must be relatively easy to find (either online, national retailers, or adequate substitutes are available).
  • Finally, it has to be something I would love to receive or would personally give to a friend or family member. I would never recommend something I wouldn't pony up for myself.
