OK folks. We all know what season it is. It’s shopping time! In the spirit of the season, I’m going to try to put together a shopping guide for the ladies out there who have no idea what to get their guy. Hopefully these items will appeal to most any guy out there as the primary qualification for getting on this list is utility. Obviously this list is going to exclude items like sweaters and clothing as those items are simply not cool enough to make it on the list *wink*

These will all link to Amazon and if you actually purchase through these links, I do get a 3% commission to help support this blog (though it will be the same price for you).

Today I’m going to start with the $5-10 “Stocking Stuffer” Pricepoint:

Note: Please don’t get your guy socks or underwear for his stocking stuffer. If we want socks, we’ll go buy socks. On the other hand, these things are just plain cool, and any guy would be happy to find one or a few of these items in their stocking.

Gerber 22-01769 Shard Keychain Tool

Stanley 55-045 7-1/2-Inch Wonder Bar II Pry Bar

Gerber 22-41770 Artifact Pocket Keychain Tool

Streamlight 73001 Nano Light Miniature Keychain LED Flashlight, Black

Columbia River Knife and Tool’s Eat N Tool 9100C Silver Multi Tool

Swiss+Tech UKCSB-1 Utili-Key 6-in-1 Keychain Multi-Tool

Swiss+Tech MMCSSS Micro-Max 19-in-1 Keychain Multitool

MantaRing – Cable Key Ring – Waterproof (Blue)

Smith’s PP1 Pocket Pal Multifunction Sharpener

All of these items are useful and handy. Most guys could use one or more of these things and a good key ring to put them on. You never know when you’re going to need a little pry bar to open a paint can or some other stubbornly-closed item. Many of these also include bottle openers, knives, screwdrivers, etc. There are dozens of other similar tools out there, but these are the ones I felt had the best reputation at this price point. I personally own several of these and keep them on me whenever I have my keys.
