NewAir 5,600 Watt Garage Heater (Air & Water)
We all know a lotta guys just love tinkering with something or other in the garage. Could be a new car you’re desperate to keep clean, an old car you’re determined to fix up or just some good old ill-advised and potentially life-threatening DIY! As we slide deep into the heart of winter, the cruelest mistress of all, what better way to keep warm than with this powerful machine for $130 with a heat radius of 560 square feet. Yes it looks a lot like a guitar amp, but turn this one up to 11 and you’ll be toasty and warm while you smack your thumbs with a hammer or wrench. But not too warm, as this heater is smart enough to turn itself off when it senses overheating. He might never leave the garage! Besides, ladies…it gets him out of the house and active, right?
Camo Underwear 5-Pack (GAP)
Little boys love playing soldiers, and that desire very rarely goes away even into adulthood. Leave a man in a room alone with a remote control and given enough time will probably begin blasting away imaginary enemies with his new ‘gun’. What better way to indulge these silly fantasies than by getting him these smart camouflage briefs. If your man is anything like me, some pairs will go missing within days, so this pack of five may last a little longer than usual! At $18.99 it’s a fair price to let him think he’s leading the platoon.
