Holiday Shopping Guide for Dudes

This is from Brandy, Tom’s wife. I’m here to give you my dead simple gift guide for men doing holiday shopping. I know I do all our holiday shopping but I am delighted when my husband picks out stuff himself. I want to give you thoughtful and easy ideas to get started. The beauty of my picks? You don’t actually have to pick anything out. Take a stand against gift cards and get something delightful and thoughtful. The best part is that every single item on this list is a serious savings on retail prices and isn’t another piece of electronics.
