Craftsman 1,470-Piece Professional Tool Set, $8,599.90, from Sears
For the gearhead who needs a little more torque or the weekend handyman whose workbench is a little too bare, check out the ultimate set of tools from Craftsman. The set includes nine of Craftsman's comprehensive tool sets, including the 300-piece Base Essentials set and the 94-piece Auto Specialty Professional Tool set. (Each set also can be purchased separately.) No nut will go untightened and no muffler will hang loose thanks to this sea of shining tools. The only problem? Finding enough space to store all 1,470 pieces.
What do Rush Limbaugh, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and His Royal Airness Michael Jordan have in common? They all love a good cigar. Fact is, guys everywhere love a nice Macanudo or Ramon Allones, whether on the 10th tee or paired with an after-dinner scotch. But with the dizzying range of cigars to choose from, picking just one brand is difficult. Enter Cigar International's Cigar of the Month Club. For $244.40 a year, or $19.95 a month, the company will send a monthly collection of four cigars. Each stogie is hand-rolled, and monthly offerings include well-known brands like H. Upmann as well as boutique cigar brands chosen by Cigar International. And don't worry if the gift recipient doesn't know a torpedo from a double corona. An executive summary detailing each cigar will give him a monthly crash course in Stogies 101.
