Not sure what to get your father? Brother? Or maybe you're thinking that your significant other might not have a clue as to what your manly tastes would prefer.

Have no fear. This year, use this page to find helpful gift suggestions for any budget.

Oh, and if you're needing more ideas, you can always check out the Gentlemint Reserve, which features daily sales on manly goods.

Self Defense Money Clip

Money clips are a dime a dozen these days, made from all different kinds of materials. This money clip is a bit different though: it'll save your bacon. If you find yourself in a dicey situation, this money clip doubles a makeshift weapon, with an integrated finger hole.

Epic Bars

Who wants to snack on a wimpy, grain-based granola bar? Well, fortunately there's a manlier alternative: The Epic All-Natural Meat bar. These bars are made with grass-fed animals and are gluten free (if that matters to you). Some of the manly combinations include Beef, Habernero and Cherry, Bacon, Bison and Cranberry, and Turkey, Almond and Cranberry.

A gift certainly not for the faint of heart, yet you're not buying a gift for the faint of heart, are you?

Aerobie 80R08 AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker

If you're buying a gift for someone into coffee, this is the gift. Using the AeroPress is arguably the best way to make coffee or espresso, depending on what you're trying to make. The technique uses total immersion and gentle pressure to make really rich-tasting coffee, without all the acidity of normal coffee.

Use it to make espresso, iced coffee, and it's also a great travel coffee maker, as it comes with a travel bag.

A pound of bacon can only last so long. Why not take the scent with you the entire day with this pound of soap that smells like bacon.

Tired of the generic hunting heads of deer, bears, and other big game? Showcase your ultimate Big Game hunting prowess with the Wall Mounted T-Rex Dinosaur Head. It's plastic, but oh so lifelike. Guaranteed to scare small children.

The New iPad Air

I know, I know. Another tablet, another Christmas. But this is no ordinary tablet! The iPad Air is the lightest, possibly most beautiful tablet to date. It has a retina display, which adds crystal-clear clarity to text and high-res images.

Flashback Atari Console

Bring back the glory days with this Atari Flashback console. 75 games, two controllers, and memories galore for only $50.

Personal Beathalyzer

Nobody wants to find themselves in the gray area where you've had something to drink, but aren't sure if you should be driving. The BACtrack Element Professional Breathalyzer is here to help. Just blow through the mouthpiece and get an alcohol level reading in seconds.

If you're too tipsy to find the mouthpiece, than you probably shouldn't be driving anyway.

Let's say that the Zombie Apocalypse is actually coming. Make sure your loved-one is well prepared with this 3-Day Survival Kit. Water, food, warmth, lighting, matches, tools and basic first aid kit. It's guaranteed for 5 years of storage life too.

LoggerHead Bionic Grip Wrench

This is one of the most versatile gripping tools around. It adjusts to fit 13 sizes of fasteners, as well as pipes and tubes from 1/2 to 13/16 inches. It's a brilliant little tool that you'll use more often than you think.

The Fitbit Force does all the usual tracking: steps, distance, calories and stairs climbed, etc. It also monitors how long and how well you sleep, and can wake you up with a silent, vibrating alarm.

An Astronaut's Guide to Life On Earth

Who wanted to be an astronaut when they grew up? Colonel Chris Hadfield gives a look inside what it's like to be an astronaut and the life lessons learned training for NASA.

Custom Knob Creek Label Maker

There's nothing wrong with giving straight Knob Creek to your loved one. However, if you want to go the extra mile, try the label maker. Create custom labels and send them to your friends. Hurry though, you'll need to make your label before December 9th in order to ensure it's received by Christmas.

Flatpot Folding Camping Stove

This campstove is far from normal, as it folds completely flat and cools incredibly quickly. Perfect for cooking without lugging an entire kitchen set on your camping trip.

Bushsmarts Trail Hammock

The hammock that you always wanted. Keep bugs away with netting, and folds away into a tiny bag.

Optic Glasses

Why use another boring tumbler set, when you can use optic glasses. These glasses come to life with concave and convex lenses as liquid is added.

Bonavita BV1800 8-Cup Coffee Maker

This is the Cadillac of coffee brewers. It has a unique shower-head design to completely saturate all the grounds evenly, and comes with an awesome stainless steel carafe that keeps your coffee warmer much longer than the traditional glass carafes.

Samurai Umbrella

Turn heads with your samurai umbrella, strapped firmly to your back. Opened up it looks like a mild-mannered umbrella, but while sheathed could pass for something out of the best Samurai movies out there.

Home Delivered Artisan Bacon

There's a service called Batch5280 that delivers artisan bacon from around the country to your doorstep every month. Think of it as Bacon of the Month, except for artisan bacon.

Only bacon aficionados need apply.

Custom Shaving Gift Set

Bring back the good 'ol days when the term "disposable razor" didn't exist. Custom Shaving has plenty of straight edge razors, soaps and shaving accessories from a time when shaving was an art form.

Custom Shaving is a good friend of Gentlemint, and a great company to support.

Horse Head Mask

This product really needs no explanation. If you don't have anyone in mind for this gift, it's probably not for you. But if someone springs to mind instantly, it's probably the perfect gift. And it won't break the bank either.

Martin Jetpack

If you've got $100k to blow, might we humbly suggest the Martin Jetpack. Fly up to altitudes of 800 feet at 50mph for as long as 30 minutes with the jetpack. Oh, and I'm sure you'd never need it, but it also comes with a deployable parachute.

Sinatra Select Jack Daniels

Sinatra could always be found with a glass of Jack in his hand, claiming it was "a gentleman's drink". Today, limited quantities of Sinatra Select are bottled and distributed at select retail locations. It's a 90 proof whiskey, smooth and bold in character like Sinatra himself.

Military Grade iPhone Casees

Amazon is currently selling the military-grade iPhone covers. These covers are built with genuine G10 ballistic composite, and feature a nifty interlocking patterned case.

But we had you at "military grade", didn't we?

Kiehl's Since 1851 'Ultimate Man' Body Scrub Soap on a Rope

This is a manly soap, destined to clean even the dirtiest man without causing him to smell like daises and chocolate afterwards. It's a hearty blend that they've been using since, well, 1851. (Or the soap was made in 1851, we're not sure. We're hoping that's not the case.)

Either way, it's a convenient way to shower whilst keeping your hands free. We approve.

Winter Cocktails Book

As Winter closes in on us, it's a good time to review your arsenal of winter cocktails. Winter Cocktails Book is a great read (and coffee table item), giving you some great recipes on mulled ciders, hot toddies, wine drinks, eggnogs, and punches.

Lighter Cufflinks

I imagine this as a product that James Bond probably would have wanted. Stylish vintage cuff links that can start a fire or light a smoke, even when you're dressed to the nines. They're tiny too, clocking in at under an inch in size.

Practical? No way. But that's not the point, is it? Just remember to remove the cuff links before actually lighting anything...

Paddle Your Own Canoe

The always-quotable Ron Swanson (played by Nick Offerman) is no stranger to Gentlemint. So naturally we're in favor of anything written by Nick Offerman, like his chart-topping book Paddle Your Own Canoe: One Man's Fundamentals for Delicious Living.

The book features advice on how to grow a mustache, how to woo a woman, woodworking fundamentals, cooking meat... all the things a man should know how to do. In real-life, Offerman runs a wood shop when he's not filming episodes, which ratchets up his manliness by a factor of ten.

Gerber Shard Keychain Tool

This is a nifty tool because it's airline safe AND has seven useful functions: small flat driver, medium flat driver, cross driver, pry bar, wire stripper, lanyard hole, and bottle opener. Insanely durable to boot. The perfect stocking stuffer for ~$7.

Stainless Steel Shot Glasses

Who needs cubes when you have stainless steel shot glasses that are meant to be thrown into the freezer. Each glass is lined with a freezable gel that that you put in the freezer and make ice-less drinks.

Not only are they a cool technology, these glasses look pretty great too.

Cast Iron Hand Cigar Ashtray

Needing a cigar ashtray with a little more personality? Look no further than a cast iron hand cigar ashtray from Man Cave Gifts. Aside from a manly place to hold your stogey, you could also use it to hold keys, knick-knacks and change.

Stanley Adventure eCycle Flask

Stanley makes a stylish cleanable flask that uses 100% recycled material. It features a two-stage lid, is dishwasher safe and durable. It IS a Stanley, after all. And at ~$20, you won't break the bank either.

Big Head Squirrel Feeder

Want to embarrass the squirrels in your yard while nourishing them? This is the perfect item. The Big Head Squirrel feeder holds food inside of the squirrel, so when a squirrel wanders up and wants to chow down, he has to put his head in the feeder, making the squirrel appear to have a massive noggin. You're embarrassing the squirrel while nourishing it! Brilliant.

Perfect for anyone who things squirrels need a bit of humiliation from time to time.

Charcoal Companion Smores Roasting Rack

Smores on the grill are a great little staple for those not wanting to deal with the hassle of starting a real fire. The Charcoal Companion helps you keep your hands free so that you can focus on other things while your smore is cooking. Not only that, the roasting rack includes a spacious warming platform to conveniently toast and melt the chocolate above the mallows.

Personalized Whiskey Barrel

Make your own hooch the right way, with your own personalized, handmade whiskey barrel from UncommonGoods. Age your spirits in an oak barrel that, because of it's smaller proportions, will age up to 10 times faster. Turn the barrel and taste the contents weekly (or more if need be ;) ), and then when it reaches the perfect flavor, pull it straight from the barrel.
