Don’t miss my gift list for women who already have everything!

Some men are hard to buy gifts for. Luckily my dad is always happy with a new wallet and my brother can always use an Amazon gift card. However, my husband is a different story. It’s not that he’s difficult, he just asks for expensive things! Then I feel guilty if I don’t get them because I’m trying to stick to the budget. (We are trying to buy a new house after all.)

If you’re like me and like to stick to a budget for Christmas, then you’ll find this list of gift ideas for men very helpful. I’ve put together some unique gift ideas and they’re all under $20!

*Keep in mind that prices can change and may drop even more the closer we get to the holidays.
