41 Unusual But Brilliant Gifts On Amazon For Men Who Are Hard To Please

My boyfriend is one of those people who is hard to figure out when it comes to buying gifts — the kind of person who has really specific tastes, but also isn't into the usual sorts of items you can find in stores. I can trudge through aisles as much as I want, but at the end of the day I know he won't be satisfied with what's there. If you know someone like that, then you're in luck, because there are literally thousands of great gifts for men on Amazon — as well as everyone else for that matter.

If you can name it, it's probably available on the site. A shower head with a selection of water pressure settings that also lights up in five different colors? Check. A cocktail kit made specifically to take aboard planes? Oh yeah — Amazon's got it. And while searching for these products on your own can be a daunting task, this list has some of the most unusual, unique and downright original gifts on Amazon.

Of course, these gifts aren't just good for men, they're good for anyone: because even though no one needs a breakfast sandwich maker to survive, everyone will love having one. So go ahead and take a look at these incredibly fun gifts that guys actually want — and pick some things up for yourself, too.

5. A Drinking Game Where No Two Games Are Ever The Same

Under The Influence Drinking Game, $25, Amazon

Since each card is personal and interactive, the chances that you'll wind up playing similar rounds of this drinking game are practically zero — and even if you play with the same people over and over, there's four decks and over 150 cards to play with to keep things fresh. Easily playable with or without alcohol, one Amazon reviewer wrote: "Some of the cards are a little crazy so you may find yourself drinking often, but you can choose how drunk you want to get based on what deck you play out of, so everyone gets to decide if they want to get smashed or drink casually."


6. The Portable Coffee Mug Made From Real Leather

We've all heard the saying, "rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it," which is exactly what the ROSE KULI portable pocket mini tool is for. Sure you probably won't need a double-sided poking knife or a bung puller every day, but a saw, knife, screwdriver, hatchet, wrench, wire cutter, bottle opener, or hammer? You'll find yourself reaching for those pretty often. Made with durable stainless steel with a non-stick coating, the wooden handle is smoothed to prevent any potential hand injuries, and it weighs less than 1 pound.
