2012 Holiday Gift Guide: Men

It's that time of the year again.  Time to shower the people you love with love--as James Taylor would say--and maybe a few fun gifts, too.

Christmas for me is a simple time.  Or, at least that's what I try to make it.  For me, it's about a tree and candles, cookies and Glühwein, family and friends.  I am not always sure I want to exchange gifts (and this year Peter and I may not exchange many), but when I do, I want them to be perfect for the person and meaningful.

I put together this list for men based on the things that I thought would make Peter smile.  There is something on here for everyone and everything is affordable.  The record player is the most expensive, at 160€, but it is the one indulgence on the list.  Happy shopping!
