With the holidays fast approaching, you might be wondering what on earth to get your guy this year for [insert gift-giving holiday here.] Guys are much trickier to shop for than girls, of course. Just think Ė if roles were reversed, all a guy has to do is buy you a giant teddy bear and some flowers and youíd be in heaven. If you present your man with a fluffy teddy at school, youíre likely to find yourself single in record time. So instead of going with what you know, try going with something he knows.

The Wide World of Sports

Not all guys are into sports, but there is likely some sort of sport that he is interested in or plays. Sports can vary from fishing to golf to football, and he might just enjoy watching it, or he might be the star quarterback. If your man likes a particular sport, find him a gift that suits his interest. You might buy a special hat, the jersey of a favorite player, a football with a special logo, a set of sheets with his favorite insignia, a special action figure or a signed picture or card. You can even branch out a bit and get a video game or movie that has his favorite sport as the central theme.

The Bookworm

If your guy is into books, show him how into him you are by buying him some of his favorite series or preordering him the next book by a favorite author. You can buy a book ahead of time online and present him with the receipt for delivery. Not only is that an unusual gift, it shows how interested you are in what he reads and likes. You might also get him a book in a similar style to read while he waits anxiously for his ďrealĒ present. He might just have you to thank for turning him on to a whole new author or title!

The Gamer

If your guy is a big time gamer, chances are he already has the games he needs, so your job isnít to provide the best games, but to get creative about what he plays. For example, if heís a World of Warcraft buff, you can preorder an expansion pack or buy him a book of tips and secrets. Books of passcodes and background on stories are always fun, and you can also get him something to help him get comfortable during play. A new gaming chair might be out of your price range, but a sturdy beanbag chair might be exactly what he needs.

The Unknown

If you donít really know your guy yet, you can still get him the perfect gift. For most guys, the perfect gifts are the ones that suit their interests. If you donít know him well enough to pick out one of those kinds of gifts, you can skip right over the sentimental gifts. Guys appreciate poetry or a picture you drew, but they donít normally treasure it the way girls do. Instead, offer him something he can eat or spend. A gift card to a favorite store might be okay, but a gift card to the movies with enough money for two tickets (one for you and one for him, perhaps?) might be even better.

This is a cute article for those who just started dating and don't know what to do. I must admit though, I think the movie gift card is kind of corny especially if you get it hoping he'll use it on you... >_>

But bean bag chairs? I used to want one of those so bad when I was little, then I sat in one and man are they uncomfotable! It may just be that I'm one of those wierd type that sit up straight though. ^.~

The only guy in my life right now is my Dad.

And that's the way I like it.

I might be giving a friend Caolan (said Keelan) a poem about when we were really really young, in reception at school and we were doing a concert for my club, the Sajehs.
