Grooming supplies

Does your boyfriend look like Bigfoot? Is his neck beard something you might see on the bench at an NHL rink during the playoffs?

Help him put his best face forward with an all-in-one shaving kit, which typically includes precision-angled blades, soothing gels, and a soft brush for the post-razor detailing. Complete his manscaping makeover with new cologne and he’ll be looking good and smelling nice.

Is your dude obsessed with all things digital? Gift him with a new tablet, either Apple or Android, so he can stay current in a busy world.

Sports scores, stock prices, the latest headlines — all will be within his grasp at a moment’s notice. Play your cards right and he’ll even use that shiny new tablet to make reservations for the chic Italian eatery all your friends have been gabbing about.

Wireless headphones

Is he a music buff? Consider wireless headphones so he can listen to his favorite tunes whenever he wants. At the gym, on a train during his commute, playing video games — the applications are endless.

A good pair of wireless headphones will block out life’s little distractions, which will leave him more time and energy for the important things (namely you).

Food subscriptions

If the quickest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, then the easiest way to keep his love is with a monthly food subscription (truly the gift that keeps on giving).

Two of the most popular ideas also happen to be two of the most obvious: beer (because … beer!) and steak (insert Homer Simpson’s drooling “mmmmm” here).

Fitness trackers

Fitness trackers for manly movement (Amazon.com).

If he’s eating up all the foods, your man will also need to work off some of those extra calories. Fitness trackers are trending these days — and with good reason. Used properly, they provide a wealth of data about your workout habits: speed and distance traveled, heartbeat, and, depending on the model, sleep quality. They even measure calorie consumption, so just plug those beers of the month into the interface and you’ll know where you’re at in the battle of the bulge (no fibbing!).

Get concert tickets for your music fan.

Event tickets

Want to spice up your date night routine? Kick the Italian eatery to the curb and treat your partner to his favorite band or sporting event with hard-to-get tickets.

Be it Weezer or the Red Sox, there’s a band and a team for every man out there.

Weekend getaways

Give him a weekend getaway,

Give him a weekend getaway,

If the budget allows, bundle those tickets with a romantic weekend at your favorite destination. Maybe it’s the mountains, maybe it’s the coast, or maybe it’s just the big city near you. Again, the possibilities are limitless. Set your heart aflutter and see where it takes the two of you!

Digital cameras

When you do find time to get out of town on a romantic retreat, you’ll want to preserve the memories. And the best way to do that is with a new digicam! Sure, you could use your phone, but a standalone camera will deliver better shots in a wider range of environments.

Remember: Better pics mean more “Likes” when you share on social!

Stumped by specifics but have a general idea what he likes? Opt for a gift basket stuffed with multiple goodies, which can be assembled around almost any interest (cheese, comics, clothing, etc.). A bit of online sleuthing turns up gift baskets from a wide variety of retailers at almost all price points. Because why give one gift when you can give several?

He'd love a new watch.

He'll always know what time it is.

Watches

Some say that a man can be judged by the company he keeps, but let’s be honest, the true mark of his character is found in his timepiece. Be it analog or digital, classical or cutting-edge, expensive or nerdy, a great watch compliments a man’s personal style perfectly. Even better, if he actually knows how to read and use it, he’ll never be late for date night again.

      Three militants loyal to the Islamic State group (ISIS) have been killed by wild boars as they planned to ambush Iraqi tribesmen opposed to the group, according to a local anti-ISIS leader. At least eight ISIS fighters had reportedly taken cover among dense reeds in Iraq's al-Rashad region, about 55 miles southwest of Kirkuk, in preparation for a surprise attack on local anti-ISIS tribesman when a herd of wild boars attacked the jihadists on Sunday, killing three. The militants likely disturbed the notoriously short-tempered animals, said Sheikh Anwar al-Assi, a chief of the local Ubaid tribe and head of the group of local tribesmen who took up arms after ISIS took control of the nearby town of Hawija.

      It’s “Live with . . . Caitlyn!” On Tuesday morning’s “Live with Kelly” show, Caitlyn Jenner was a guest — and possibly one of the rudest ever. Jenner, who appeared to promote her memoir, “The Secrets of My Life,” continuously cut off Kelly Ripa and guest co-host, John Leguizamo. At one point, Jenner even turned the tables on Ripa, asking when she first identified as a female. “Just think about that,” she said, pointing her manicured finger at Ripa. “When did you know you were a girl?” Jenner then made Leguizamo her target, asking him how he enjoyed dressing in drag in the 1995 comedy, “To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything!

    • Ancient people left a frightening message for us, and scientists just found it

      10,000 years from now (assuming humans haven't been wiped out by a plague, space rock, or our own destructive tendencies), it'll probably be fairly easy for the average person to research what life was like in 2017. For us here today, finding out what life was like in 11,000BC is much more challenging, but by studying ancient stone carvings and pairing the somewhat confusing messages with archeological data, researchers believe they've discovered concrete evidence of an apocalyptic event that may have altered the future of mankind: a comet strike. The study, performed by a team of researchers from the University of Edinburgh ( PDF ), suggests that a potentially cataclysmic comet strike rapidly and dramatically altered the Earth's climate for hundreds of years, sending humanity into a mini ice age with nearly glacial conditions. The time period when this occurred is known as the Younger Dryas, and has been well documented thanks to ample evidence of the cooling found in core samples, but its cause has been theorized and debated for a long while. Now, thanks to stone carvings left by ancient people in modern day Turkey, researchers believe that a comet was the culprit. The carvings are remarkably preserved and appear to have been created to document an apocalyptic event which devastated the land. Figures depicted in the carvings, including apparently deceased, headless human bodies and other wildlife, were made at around the time the Younger Dryas began, suggesting that the event archived in stone could have been the same one that caused the thousand-year cold snap. The carvings were found at what is considered to be one of the oldest and most important temple sites on the planet, and for the images to appear there suggests that they have enormous historical significance. The Younger Dryas is often credited with pushing ancient humans to band together out of pure necessity, forming the foundation of modern agriculture and other huge advancements in civilization. The idea that a comet may have been responsible for pushing humanity forward is an extremely interesting, and potentially frightening possibility. The findings are far from an iron clad confirmation, but the timing matches up shockingly well, and would have to be a fantastic coincidence if the two events are actually unrelated.

      FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — A veteran in North Carolina has been charged with tying her service dog to a tree and shooting it five times while a soldier filmed it. Jail records show 23-year-old Marinna Rollins was arrested Tuesday and charged with cruelty to animals. The Fayetteville Observer reports that warrants say she and the soldier took the dog to a wooded area where Rollins shot the dog at close range. The dog was buried in a shallow grave.

    • 11 images that show how the Trump administration is failing at photography

      White House photo How much does visual imagery, especially photography, determine the success or failure of a presidency? In the first 100 days, the Trump White House has distinguished itself with largely forgettable imagery, in contrast to the Obama administration’s brilliant orchestration, creation, and curation. The approach to photography under Trump has ranged from haphazard to negligent. In the early going, team Trump operated with a paucity of photographers and editing staff. Staff members, such as the press secretary, have doubled as photographers. There does not appear to be much strategy in terms of which photographs are posted to staff social media accounts and which land on the president’s
