It doesn't matter if you're looking for the perfect gift for you father, brother, husband or boyfriend. Men are notoriously hard to shop for. It's not really their fault, I guess, since for every fifty different shoes, cosmetics, jewelry items and handbags that are marketed for women, there are only one or two things that are specifically for men. Another problem with shopping for men is that they are usually very rational and practical beings (or so they'd like to think) and anything too superfluous and random, however cool it may be, ends up tossed into a corner somewhere and gathering dust. So you don't want to get him another leather belt or cashmere sweater, and his tie rack is already overflowing. Technology-based gifts are always fun but are often times too pricey, or they already purchased it for themselves months ago. What to do?! Christmas is only getting closer and you're still stuck without a present for the special guy in your life. Here's a solution. Men's grooming gifts! They range from pricey to very affordable, are easy to customize to a specific need, and most importantly, are extremely practical and definitely something that'll be put to good use. Check out the slideshow for some of our favorite men's grooming tools and gift sets and get him something he'll want and need this holiday season!

For me, as much as I love any kind of cardigan, I think guys need to be a little bit careful with the look, as it can age them a lot faster than it does with women. A girl in a grandpa cardigan can look chic and contemporary; a guy in a grandpa cardigan, on the other hand, just looks like a grandpa. Now, I know not every guy is going to be into the fitted sweater look, but I would urge them to give this a chance, because it's got that fashion-meet-sports vibe that can serve as a a bridge between traditional sportswear and more refined fashion. It's a fitted cardigan from Ralph Lauren's Rugby line, and aside from being an all-around nice piece, it's got some pretty sweet details. If you pair this up with the right shirt and tie, it'll have that vintage sports look, or if you're brave you could even wear it with nothing under it at all.
