Are you looking for the perfect gift for your husband, father, brother or any other man in your life? Buy him something that he can use for his home. Home gifts can be both practical and fun. Check out our top choices for home gifts for men.
Home gifts for the sports fan
If your favorite guy spends his weekend glued to the TV, get him a gift to help him enjoy his favorite sports. If the cost of season tickets is out of your price range, get him the next best thing — a cable (or satellite) TV sports package. Sports fans shouldn’t be limited to local sports. With special sports packages, he can have the chance to watch every game. For example, with the NFL Sunday Ticket package from DirecTV, he’ll get every game, every Sunday, in HD, plus eight games at the same time on the Game Mix Channel, all the scoring action on the Red Zone Channel and much more for about $250 a year. Call your local cable and satellite TV providers for information on sports packages in your area.
For the guy who loves to tailgate or BBQ for the game, you can’t go wrong with a new grill. The Char-Griller Duo Grill provides charcoal and gas grilling in one with its dual cooking surfaces, dual warming racks and a brass side burner. $428.98, GrillsDirect.com
