Chanukah Gift Guide 6: For the Guys

It can be hard to believe, but there is a perfect gift for every guy on your list. Think about what they love to do, and find a little something that will make it easier or more fun for them to do it. So often we give “aspirational” or motivational gifts, never realizing that those gifts imply that we want them to change or improve. Instead, try to find something they’ll find fascinating, engaging, or useful in the everyday reality they’re already living.
