13 Thrifty Christmas Gift Ideas for Men in 2012
As Christmas season soon approaches many people are wondering “what should I get my dad, husband, uncle, or grandpa?” Buying gifts for men is always a difficult one, because we rarely give you ideas, and sometimes just expect ya to know. Or grunt as our spouses rattle off ideas that may interest us.
This season as all of our budgets are stretched and the dollar amount per person may be less, we wanted to offer up a few thrifty gift ideas for our readers. Here are few deals/ideas that we’ve found that might bring a smile to that special guy in your life!
