Money Talks: Five Bad Gift Ideas for Guys

Shopping for the perfect gift can be a challenge and the hardest person to shop for? Your spouse or significant other.

Everybody's got their own idea about what makes a good gift. But when you're out shopping for that man in your life, there are probably things you're going to want to avoid.

Bad gift idea number one? A tie. They're formal. They're for work. They're no fun!

Next - a nose hair trimmer. Sure, they work and sure, I might need it. But please don't give me one as a gift.

Bad gift number 3? Shoes and clothes.

It's not that we don't need socks or underwear. Of course we need underwear because we never go out and buy any. But it's not fun. Look... this stuff is as fun to me as an iron would be to you.

Next, bath products. I'm a guy. I don't need anything fancy or expensive. Save your money.

And finally, jewelry. Do you see me wearing jewelry? If I'm not, that's probably because I don't like to wear jewelry. Oh, and by the way, I'm attached to my watch. If you plan on replacing it, it should be like the one I have, but better.

So what do men want? That's simple! We want stuff that makes noise, like power tools! Love ~em. And you really want to know what a man wants? All you gotta do is think about what a little boy wants.
