20+ Great gift ideas for men under $50! Use these as gifts, stocking stuffers, or gift exchange presents! Great for woodworkers and mechanics!
With the holiday season right around the corner, I figured that it was time to get some of our favourite gift ideas down on paper (err…. on computer). It’s so hard to choose gifts for grown men, isn’t it?
If the men in your life are anything like my dad, brothers, or husband, then they buy everything they want, when they want or need it! I’m helping you out today by gathering up over 20 great gifts for men under $50!
I asked my husband for gift ideas on this one, so you know that it’s really coming from someone who knows what guys want! Although, honestly, there are a lot of female woodworkers out there that would love these gifts too, so don’t count them out!
This list was primarily made with woodworking and mechanics in mind, because that’s my husband’s passion, but so many of the tools and ideas are so versatile that they would be great for anyone on your list. And bonus, the majority of these ideas are things that we all need more than one of – I’m looking at you missing tape measure!
