Shopping for gifts is difficult when the person you’re shopping for won’t tell you what they want. Men in particular seem to be quick to hit you with the “I don’t want anything,” but even if they’re telling the truth, where’s the fun in that?

Having had to deal with that unhelpful answer more than once in the past, I’ve come across tons of cool gifts that any man will love. If you’re struggling to find a gift for your partner, dad, uncle or brother this holiday season, don’t worry: I’ve gathered 37 of the best gifts for men I’ve ever found on Amazon, from a sleek minimalist watch to a set of exotic jerkies to a glass with a real bullet embedded in it. There’s something on this list for every man, regardless of their age or interests, so take a scroll through and be done with the frustration of shopping for someone who won’t tell you what they want.
