Pocket Knife ($10 – $215)
If the leading man in your life loves outdoors and hands on activities, a pocket knife is key! There are a lot of popular pocket knives out there, which makes it hard to choose just one. However, I’ll give you gift shoppers a few tips on what kind of knives NOT to buy. The quality of a pocket knife varies so, the inexpensive knives that you find at gas stations should be avoided. But don’t think all inexpensive knives don’t work well because some do. How much you spend on a knife should depend on how much you plan to use it. If your dad/husband is the kind of guy who uses a pocket knife every day for hours, you might want to spend a pretty penny on it. For more occasional use, less expensive knives work well.
