From opening jars and cracking jokes to offering a listening ear or a shoulder to cry on, the men in my life always seem to make things better. And yet, despite doing so much, they rarely ask for anything in return.

So, this year, I've made it my mission to turn the tables around and spoil them with stocking stuffers they'd never buy for themselves, like useful gadgets, funny mugs and even luxurious skincare products. Best of all? Every gift is under $50. Scroll on to see the list and show your dad, brother, husband, boyfriend, best friend and more just how much you appreciate them.

For the guy who takes a lot of pride in his car, we suggest this handy detailing kit. Inside the carrying case, he'll find a portable vacuum and three different attachments. (Read: A flathead hose for hard-to-reach spots, an extension tube for under the seats and a brush head for the upholstery.) The kit is so compact, he can even store it in his trunk.

Encourage him to crack a smile and keep his furniture ring-free with a few "Mistaken Lyrics" coasters. The coasters are crafted from cork, sold in sets of six and can even be purchased by genre.
