It's almost time to do holiday shopping. Maybe you have already done some. Maybe you haven't done any. Either way, here's some cool gift idea's for the man in your life...or woman because my wife is a hands on type of lady and I know she would like some of these. Best of all, they're not expensive.

Contour Gauge Duplicator
What makes it cool? It's a great tool for doing all kinds of projects. If you're doing wood flooring or tiling, this handy gadget is ideal for shaping around piping or awkward corners of your floor so you can cut and shape to fit. You can actually make these but why bother when they are not expensive.


Ice Molds...Or Whiskey Stones
What makes it cool? If you have a man (or woman) in your life that loves whiskey/scotch or whatever "on the rocks", this is great gift. The intent is to keep drinks cool without watering them down. There is debate whether the "stones" actually work. Some seem to be better than others. There are many different kinds out there so do your research. The Ice Molds will water a drink down but at a slower rate and are actually good for any drink. Plus, they look really cool in a glass. The good thing is they're both pretty inexpensive.

LifeStraw Personal Water Filter
What makes it cool? My family and I go hiking and camping a lot. And most of the time we have plenty of water. But you never know when an emergency might happen and you need water from another, unknown source. That's where the LifeStraw comes in handy. It's a must-have in any disaster/survival kit. Plus, it's less than $20.


Home Brew Kit
What makes it cool? Well's beer. And it's perfect for beer snobs (like myself) or any beer lover that might want to look into making there own brew. There are many types and recipes available and you can get a lot of satisfaction from knowing "I made that and it is good." As the video below says, "if you make mac and cheese from a box without help, you can make beer."
