Every holiday season, retailers sell a ton of wallets, ties, and sports-themed sweatshirts to people shopping for gifts for guys. They'll always be gift staples, but they're not always particularly creative. When it comes to what gifts guys actually want, picking from the gems on this list are far more unique options.

The gifts included on this list will appeal to a number of different interests, so no matter what the person you're shopping for is into, you're covered. We've got practical stuff, pop culture-themed stuff, random stuff, personalized stuff, food-themed stuff, grooming stuff, beauty stuff... and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

It's a good time to be a person looking for a cool gift idea because the choices couldn't be vaster or easily accessible than they are right now.
