Ultra Manly Gift Guide 2011

As always, when you’re in a bind, the Ultra Manly Book Club comes to the rescue. 

About this time every year, every single man has some iteration of this thought, “holy crap, Christmas is three weeks away and I have NO idea what to get ___”.  Likewise, every girl goes through the same process, “holy crap, he’s so hard to shop for”.  Don’t worry, the Ultra Manly Book Club’s got you covered with this Ultra Manly Gift Guide for men.  Below are a few gift suggestions for that special man/family member/woman/yourself in your life. They range from practical to a little more extravagant. Some are Book Club related, some are just simply awesome man toys. There’s a little something for everyone (as long as everyone is a male).

"People should call me Z$". And it was so.
