How to Find Perfect Gift Ideas for the Man in Your LifeIt’s hard to find the right gift for a guy. Whether it’s Valentine’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas or his birthday, you’re never sure what will be different, thoughtful and creative.
We all know the jokes about ties, but whether it’s our father, husband, grandfather or brother (or son!) it’s hard to think of just the right gift for a guy. These tips will help you come up with something interesting and unique this year.
Because there’s no way to list every possible gift idea in one article (although we will list several), here are some ways to get your your imagination flowing and help you narrow your focus on a gift just for him. Make a brief mental or written list of the qualities and interests your dad, husband, boyfriend or granddad has and you can easily recognize gift ideas he will like, appreciate and enjoy.

Gifts for Guys Who Love Tech ToysWe can’t get through even part of a year without a new cell phone or two being launched, or an update to another popular tech toy announced.
The iPhone 5 and Mini iPad are two of the newest must haves on the market. While earlier generations of each have been out for a while, both of these updates offer some advantages over their earlier launches.
The iPhone 5 has finally moved on from the 5mg camera that hampered its most recent predecessors from taking the sharpest of photos, and it also includes Siri, the polite (female) voice that accompanied the iPhone 4 and answers your questions verbally. Siri is actually pretty smart and fun to know once you ‘talk’ to her, and if your favorite guy hasn’t met her yet, he might like her.
Samsung and other firms have new and improved models (who doesn’t?); if you visit your local cell provider,

The Mini iPad may require some pre planning if you want it delivered in time for your celebration. It’s been on back order in most stores, but you can see it in person at the Apple Store and hold it in your hands. Once you touch it you won’t want to put it down. It’s wafer thin, weighs next to nothing, and will easily become a favorite.

This can help you come up with more creative ideas than if you walk into the department store and go by the "Gifts for Father’s Day" counter (which is most certainly stocked with the usual ties, socks, shirts and other stuff that probably already fills his drawers and closet).
Depending on your budget, you can either buy something small but thoughtful, or go all out for that major purchase he’s been pondering. If you know he’s into hunting or photography, but you really don’t understand the gear, ask his closest buddy about the latest equipment might be, or what little device is missing from his gear.
Hunters and Fishermen: Hunting and fishing enthusiasts might like something simple but incredibly useful, such as anything waterproof that can be used in any type of weather or a case that will protect expensive guns, ammunition or tackle.
If he’s had his eye on a new gun or rod, see if his best buddy can tip you off on what to get.
Even if you can’t afford the full price, a gift certificate toward that goal will be appreciated. It will show him you paid attention to what he likes, and you support his hobby.
Photography buffs: Your amateur (or even professional) photography dude will drool over the latest new name brand camera. Canon and Nikon have both released recent high end dSLRs (the Canon EOS 5D Mark iii and the Nikon D800); both cameras have been given great reviews and are hot items currently. If he’s happy with his camera body, perhaps he would like a new lens. Or, you may score a hit with something as simple as a new, high quality filter or a professional grade camera bag (especially if they have added to their kit and outgrown the bag(s) they currently use.
You can also get gift certificates (and a ‘permission slip’ from you) for a weekend at a favorite hunting retreat,

Collectors: Do some research to find out what is missing from his collection and see if you can locate a good find to add to it. Give him a book on the topic (some of these are very expensive and are used as major sources for research and appraising collectors’ items),
