5 Cheap Gifts for Guys with Free Shipping

The gifts ideas for guys featured in this article are evergreen accessories that every man needs and will use for a while.

Buying a gift for men can be a challenging task especially, if your male friend/husband is picky about clothes he wears or claims he has everything he needs. Most men love expensive gadgets, but sadly we all have a budget we have to stick to.

Leather Belts

Men do not leave the house without a belt. They need belt for their shorts, jeans and office pants. A new belt is always a nice gift for every male no matter if he is your husband, boyfriend, coworker or neighbor.

The Columbia belt is perfect to wear to work or camping outdoors. It looks dressy enough to wear to more formal occasions, but doubles as a casual jean belt because of it's width and quality.

The brand Docker's stands for casual, quality menswear that can be worn in the office as well as when going out. This reversible docker's belt is like getting two belts for the price of one.

The Carhartt Men's Belt is a thick, well made belt with a nice finish that will go well with jeans & casual pants.

Heart rate monitor watch

Once considered a high-end exercise accessory, heart rate monitor watches have really become quite affordable. Most men would agree that it would be very convenient to have something that will help them hit their target heart rate during a cardio workout. These same men have likely not gotten around to purchasing the one thing that will give them exactly what they are looking for! Here's your chance to look creative, observant, and thoughtful this holiday season!

The affordable, entry-level Timex T5G941 is great for those just starting out with heart rate monitoring. If you want something that is simple, fairly rugged, and inexpensive, then this could be a good choice.

The Omron HR-100C Heart Rate Monitor is easy to program and a cinch to wear with a ventilated watch band. To ensure you don't drop above or below your proper level, the HR-100C is built with an alarm option that indicates low and high heart rates.

SFO Flamenco-II Sports Watch with pulse sensing and compass is the perfect gift for those who have a more rigorous training program. There are a lot of tools in this watch to help keep track of data and milestones. This is a cool gadget for men who love features.


Wallets can be a nice and practical gift, as most men tend to use them until they start falling apart. Knowing what kind of man are you buying a wallet for would be nice, as some men are pack rats, their wallets look like bricks stuffed with receipts & notes. The growing trend however, especially after the appearance of the iPhone, is for men to wear a small, organized wallet with nothing there but credit cards, some cash and hopefully your picture. This is a bit more personal gift, don't buy it for your male coworker, his wife may get upset.

The 100 year warranty to not fall apart Small Leather Wallet has 3 credit card slots (each fits more than one card) and is good for men who like to wear their wallets in the front pocket.

The trendy Guess wallet features plenty of credit card slots to keep you organized. Also is much cheaper to buy it on Amazon, it is made of quality leather and is very comfortable. It is highly recommended bt Amazon customers as a really nice gift.

The Kenneth Cole Reaction Men's Six Pocket is a classic, compact, stylish wallet.

The Barbecue Bible

Here comes my favorite - The Barbecue Bible Book. Men do like grilling, it seems they all have their little secrets on how to make the chicken breast more juicy or how to grill salmon to perfection. The Barbecue Bible is by far the best grilling recipe book that every self respected grill loving man should own.

I and my husband bought this book from Barnes and Nobles 5 years ago for $19.85. It is much cheaper on Amazon. This is by far the best thing we bought when we got married. With its 500 recipes from all over the world, the Barbecue Bible includes comprehensive notes on equipment, ingredients, marinades, rubs and side dishes. It does not matter whether you make a simple and quick dinner on the grill or a complex Turkish kebabs with fire-charred eggplant and yogurt. Men can impress the guests with grilled tuna with red wine, capers, and olive oil sauce or mouthwatering Bahamian chicken.

Stainless Steel Cocktail Martini Shaker

OK, if you are a lucky lady whose man knows how to make a good drink, then this might make a good gift for him. A Cocktail Martini Shaker will also make a nice gift for a male coworker or friend, it is less personal and useful for most household members who enjoy a good drink every once in a while.

The stainless steel, elegant Deluxe 3 Piece Cocktail Shaker is a must for every host. The Amazon customers describe it as classic and leak free. Good bargain for the money.

The zebra striped martini shaker features a unique double-wall, insulated glass design.This sleekĀ  shaker keeps your drinks chilled and your hands frost-free as you mix. Made of hand-painted glass with a built-in stainless steel strainer.

The 3 Piece Cocktail Shaker Kit consists of a 16 ounce measuring glass with ounce markings and common drink recipes, a 28 ounce stainless steel mixing cup, and a 4-prong stainless steel cocktail strainer.

The Godfather Movie

Men love to watch the Godfather, over and over again. The timeless story captivates audiences as we see the charismatic Michael Corleone rise to power as he ruthlessly maintains his family's position of power in this classic mafia film.

Remember, more expensive doesn't always mean a better gift. These are just a few gift ideas that are sure to please the most difficult man to buy a gift for and keep your bank account intact. I don't mind if you even take the credit when he exclaims, "How did you come up with this?! It's great!"
