Holiday Gift Guide: Last-Minute Ideas for Him

If you're a last-minute shopper, you can still find lots of great deals on thoughtful gifts he'll love

Holiday gifts for him.

Men can be really hard to shop for. He may have everything he "needs" or has no idea what he wants.

He may be bashful about receiving a gift or already has all the accouterments needed for his favorite pastime or hobby.

With less than a week before Christmas, it's time to stop browsing and start some serious online shopping.

Whether you're shopping for a dad, a husband, a boyfriend, a brother or any other man in you're life, you're sure to find something on this list that he'll enjoy.

Most of these gifts are available on Amazon Prime or have expedited shipping options to ensure delivery by Dec. 25.
