If the man in your life is anything like center Nick Mangold, a self-professed lover of the outdoors and all things food, you can’t go wrong with a solid set of grilling tools ($80; cuisinart.com). “I’m a big fan of everything related to cooking, so if I can get a good set of tongs, a spatula, and all that, that’d be really nice,” says Mangold.
Best For: The Homebody
If your guy who likes kicking back and relaxing at home, pick out something fun for cozy nights in. “Now that I have kids, I think about more practical for things for our nights together at home. A popcorn maker ($150; webrestaurantstore.com) would be great for movie nights,” says wide receiver and father of two, Eric Decker.
