2009 Holiday Gift Guide For Guys

Let's face it: shopping for men is stupid. We want to get them something they'll love, something other than grilling tongs or cologne, and so every year we ask hopefully, "What would you like for Christmas?" And every year we hear the same, mumbled, "I dunno." ...more
