Stocking Stuffers for Guys, 2012 Edition

This is Mr. Montebello Mom guest writing today's post about stocking stuffers for guys.  These $10 and under items also make great gifts for co-workers, as well as emergency presents for relatives that drop by unannounced on Christmas Eve.  Sure, you can always go with a box of See's, but why not be original?

Flashlights are a must for any emergency kit, tool box and glove compartment.  This pair of LED flashlights goes for $9.88 at The Home Depot.  Let's face it, you can never have too many flashlights!

Like many guys, I have a nice tool set in the garage.  However, sometimes I need a screwdriver to replace the batteries on a kid's toy or to do a simple fix and don't want to spend 5 minutes rummaging through the garage for a 30 second job.  Many years ago, Montebello Mom asked for a multi-screwdriver for exactly this type of situation, and it was indeed a great idea.  This 6 in 1 screwdriver is $2.97 at Home Depot.

This awesome LED worklight includes a stand that folds flat on the unit, as well as 2 powerful magnets in the back and a hook on the top.  It is NOT a flashlight, it is a worklight with 24 LED's that light up any engine compartment or dark corner of the garage.  Pep Boys has it for under $10.

This 5 piece micro tool set is on sale at Costco for under $20, which comes to under $4 apiece.  The cardboard comes pre-perforated so that each unit can be gifted individually.  The tools are small enough to fit in a pocket, and most include a keyring.  People will think of you every time they use their micro tool to save the day!

Although a bit too large to fit in a stocking, this "Homer Box" makes for a great storage solution for tools, crafts, supplies and other stuff.  It's a great buy for $8.97 at The Home Depot.

This Craftsman bottle opener is the perfect addition to any man cave.  Just as with flashlights, you can never have too many bottle openers around.  At $14.99 it's a bit pricier than the other items here, but the cool factor is definitely worth it.

So there you have it, hopefully this list will help you give unique presents without breaking the bank.  Stay tuned for my list of top gifts for guys, coming up in a week or so.
