It's true. Guys—no matter their age or relation to you—are still the hardest ones to shop for. If he's not the type to window-shop or make a list, you might be at wit's end searching for a gift that he'll like. Never fret. My Modern Met Store boasts a broad selection of cool and unique gifts for birthdays and holidays that guys are sure to love.

Is he serious and minimalistic? If so, some of the best gifts combine practicality with whimsy. Home decor, like posters and bookshelves, and kitchen accessories are just a few ideas. In addition, sometimes a creative article of clothing he wouldn't normally buy for himself (but desires anyway) makes an excellent Christmas or anniversary surprise. For example, we like the famous artist set, as it provides colorful options to add some razzle-dazzle to his outfits, and is made of high quality materials, too. Additionally, the bartender glasses kit will teach him how to make his own cocktails.

On the other hand, if the guy you're shopping for is creative and in search of a new hobby, you might want to look at games. In fact, some of the most unique games have an element of nostalgia. For instance, a good jigsaw puzzle or desk game can be hard to come by these days, especially for the guy who seems to have everything. That's where Four Point Puzzles come in to save the day. Their top-rated circular Moon puzzle is based on the clearest image of the Moon to date, even showing the tiniest craters in stunning clarity. Bonus: when it's completed, he'll have a personal Moon to hang in his room and spice up the decor.
