Got a guy friend that's hard to buy for? Guys love gifts that are well thought out. Not necessarily expensive, but just something that their friend got because they knew he would love it. Here are some tips so you can pick up that type of gift for your guy pal.

Crocheted Headphones

These crocheted headphones are the perfect gift for a music-loving pal who is also a creative soul. They're especially good if you want to give a gift that is both useful and handmade. They cost $38.00 and are available from Uncommon Goods.

Leather Watch Case

Your guy friend can store his most cherished watches or bracelets in this leather case from Red Envelope. The case features tonal top-stitching, velvet interior, and a glass lid. Store up to eight rolled watches. $69.95

Numbers LED Clock

Give your guy a funky alarm clock that consists of four, 2-inch tall cubes, each with an LED display. The cubes can be spaced far or close, giving your guy friend an opportunity to put his personal touch on it.

If you and your guy pal are in a bromance, why not celebrate that with a DVD marathon? Pick up a few shows that feature a hilarious bromance (like Scrubs or Psych, for example), and settle in for an afternoon.

Snack Helmet

A day of sports watching isn't complete without snacks. That's why this snack helmet is such a perfect gift for guys, because it combines two of their favorite hobbies. The inside faceguard of the helmet is divided for holding salsa, chips, nuts, or any other of your guy's favorite snack foods. $64.99 from Fans Edge.

Personalized Beer Glasses

Even if your guy friend isn't a drinker, these beer glasses from Signals will be a hit with him. He can pour anything from juice to his favorite microbrew into them. They include the phrase "In heaven there is no beer, that's why we drink it here" in Latin at the bottom. Best of all, you can personalize these mugs by adding your friend's name. Cost: $49.00 for a set of four.
