6 Home Gifts Men Really Want But Won't Buy For Themselves
Shopping for men is a challenge, so we spoke to J. Pickens to help us perfect our home gift picks. He's not only a custom artist and fabricator and the star of HGTV's The Work Around with J. Pickens, he's also a style savvy tastemaker. "I love giving gifts and for that reason I've spent A LOT of time thinking about what makes a gift great," J. told us. "The worst part of gifting is when the recipient keeps the gift and uses it out of obligation – it has happened to me one too many times and so I'm here to share my learnings with you." J. hand-selected stylish home items that are useful and – since it's the holidays – fun and a bit indulgent too. "Don't waste time talking to your friends about what to gift the men in your life because I am giving you a fool-proof guide – gifts that every guy would never buy himself, but trust me he wants them and if he didn't know he wanted them, you just gave him the best gift," J. says. Check out his picks and get the scoop from J. in his own words ahead.
