One thing that most men can agree on when it comes to gift shopping for women is that it can pose quite a challenge. Whether you’re buying a gift for your mom for Mother's Day, or even your girlfriend, fiancé, wife, sister, or something in between for that special day, it can be difficult to find just the right gift for the special woman in your life.

Of course, every woman has her own tastes, interests, and personality, and on the whole, most guys agree that shopping for women they love is no easy task. Should you go with a tried-and-true classic like flowers or chocolate, or will she think that shows no thought or creativity? Will buying a fitness or self-care-related gift be taken as a subtle hint she needs to improve her health? For others, it may not even pose a challenge at all, yet you are still not sure what unique gift to go with. So, what do you do?

Don’t worry. We’ve helped take the guesswork out of the otherwise stressful process of buying the best gifts for women on Mother's Day. Below, we’ve put together a list of 12 great ideas for awesome gifts for women.

Whether you’re buying a gift for your girlfriend, fiancé, wife, mom, sister, aunt, neighbor, or gal pal, it can be difficult to find just the right gift for the special women in your life. Of course, every woman has her own tastes, interests, and personalities, and on the whole, most guys agree that shopping for women they love is no easy task. Should you go with a tried-and-true classic like flowers or chocolate or will she think that shows no thought or creativity? Will buying a fitness or self-care-related gift be taken as a subtle hint she needs to improve her health? If you buy the wrong size of clothing will she question her body size and feel badly? These questions only scratch the surface of concerns many guys feel when buying gifts for women. Don’t worry; we’ve helped take the guesswork out of the otherwise stressful process of buying the best gifts for women. Below, we’ve put together a list of 10 great ideas for awesome gifts for women.

If you need inspiration, these are the best gift ideas for mom
best gifts idea for mom adult son gives present

We don't always appreciate everything our moms do for us when we're growing up, but the benefit of adulthood is perspective. From the scraped knees and bedtime stories, to advice about love and how to cook (so we're not eating fast food all the time), our moms do a lot for us. And that doesn't change when we move out on our own and start living independent lives.

Do you want to show your mom some appreciation? Do you think she deserves to be pampered, to enjoy her hobbies, to have something nice? From fashion to home decor to entertainment, these gift ideas are ones your mother will love. If you're looking for the best gifts for mom, these picks are perfect, whether it be for Mother’s Day, birthdays, the winter holidays, or simply the right day to let Mom know that you love and appreciate her.

Practicing self-defense with a weapon

We're living in crazy times, especially since this whole pandemic mess started a few long years ago. With so much instability out there, it's easy to feel, well, a little uneasy. That's why it's not a bad idea to consider a few self-defense weapons to have at your disposal, just in case. You never know really know what lies ahead but you can be prepared if things do go very, very wrong.

There are many options out there, but the best of the bunch are packable, discreet, effective, and non-lethal (because you don't necessarily have to put somebody six feet under to "take them out"). Now, it's one thing to have one of these on your person and quite another to use it safely and properly. So make sure you know what you're dealing with beforehand and maybe even set up some training time with your new tool. Whether you're planing to get (intentionally) lost in the backcountry or just milling about in the city, it's not a bad idea to consider getting one of these. Here are the best self-defense weapons for protecting yourself in 2023.

Need a horror story for the winter? Here are our top picks from acclaimed author Stephen King
Stephen King book signing

We live among walking legends, from LeBron James and Steven Spielberg to Paul McCartney and Meryl Streep. In the category of writing, Stephen King is among the very best. The 76-year-old from Maine has written countless classics, with a signature ability to both instill fear and keep readers helplessly attached to the plot.

Dubbed the "king of horror," King is a living icon, still turning out quality material. Some of the scariest concepts that continue to creep you out — the clowns, the twins in the hallway, the buried pets — are the handy work of King. It's no wonder many consider him to be one of the greatest writers of all time.
