Gift Guide: Presents for Guys Under $50

Guys are always the hardest to shop for (read my friend Jenna’s trial and tribulations of buying for her husband), but there are actually a decent number of options out there once you start to search. Sure, they’re not necessarily showstoppers, but I’m not sure guys have the kind of expectations we do. Jewelry! A romantic getaway! A new puppy! Chances are, these aren’t on his mind. My husband is more than thrilled with a bottle of Veuve Clicquot. How easy is that?
