‘Tis the season to be jolly, or is it? If you can’t find the perfect gift for the man in your life, the weeks leading up to the holidays can be stressful. We are giving you the inside scoop on what every guy wants in his stocking this year. We raided the pages of our sister site (or brother depending on how you look at it) SWAGGER Magazine, to find out how you can end up on your partner, father, brother or friend’s nice list. Let’s take the guess work out of it. Without further ado, here are their picks:
