Whether it’s your man, your father, your brother, or a close male friend, shopping for men can often be ten times harder than shopping for women. That’s because when you ask a man what he wants for the holidays, he often says something along the lines of “I don’t know,” or “I don’t need anything.” This season, theGrio is celebrating the art of gifting the discerning gentleman whose desires dance in the realm of mystery. We’ve curated a guide to shopping for the men who leave even Santa guessing.
