Buying gifts for men is not nearly as complicated as it is for women. Follow these rules and you should have no problems.

Rule #1: When in doubt - buy him a cordless drill. It does not matter if he already has one. I have a friend who owns 17 and he has yet to complain. As a man, you can never have too many cordless drills. No one knows why.

Rule #2: If you cannot afford a cordless drill, buy him anything with the word ratchet or socket in it. Men love saying those two words. "Hey George, can I borrow your ratchet?" "OK. By-the-way, are you through with my 3/8 inch socket yet?" Again, no one knows why.

Rule #3: If you are really, really broke, buy him anything for his car. A 99 cent ice scraper, a small bottle of de-icer or something to hang from his rear view mirror. Men love gifts for their cars. No one knows why.

Rule #4: Do not buy men socks. Do not buy men ties. And never buy men bathrobes. I was told that if God had wanted men to wear bathrobes, he wouldn't have invented Jockey shorts.

Rule #5: You can buy men new remote controls to replace the ones they have worn out. If you have a lot of money, buy your man a big screen TV and watch him go wild as he flips, and flips, and flips.

Rule #6: Buy men label makers. Almost as good as cordless drills. With-in a couple of weeks there will be labels absolutely everywhere. "Socks. Shorts. Cups. Saucers. Door. Lock. Sink." You get the idea. No one knows why.

Rule #7: Good places to shop for men include Northwest Iron Works, Parr Lumber, Home Depot, John Deere, Valley RV Center, and Les Schwab Tire. (NAPA Auto Parts and Sears' Clearance Centers are also excellent men's stores. It doesn't matter if he doesn't know what it is. "From NAPA Auto, eh? Must be something I need. Hey! Isn't this a starter for a '68 Ford Fairlane? Wow! Thanks.")

Rule #8: It's hard to beat a really good wheelbarrow or an aluminum extension ladder. Never buy a real man a step ladder. It must be an extension ladder. No one knows why.

Rule #9: Clamps. Men can never have enough quick grip clamps. No one knows why.

Rule #10: Buy your man Duct Tape. This is a man's most universal repair tool. All men know, if you can't fix it, duct it.

Why did you need a number 2?

Although, screwdriver sets are missing off the list. Screwdriver sets- the more the better- are very important, because he will take one screwdriver and use it and then the next time he needs that screwdriver he needs a new set.

Looks good to me.

Now the ladies anything that sparkles, it doesn't need to do anything but sparkle.
Sparkle on ears, sparkle hanging around the neck, sparkle around a wrist, sparkle on finger, even sparkle around an ankle.

How could you TOTALLY miss having a Temperature guage on the list.

Every guy needs at least one. and, and, and what about a good flash light or two.

I found the best stocking stuffer for my husband (he's now someone else's husband ) was a tape measure. In different lengths, in different sizes, in different colors. Surely there had to be one flat spot in the garage that didn't have a tape measure sitting on it!

Those are good things too. Can't have too many of them.
