Unique Gift Ideas For That Hard-To-Buy-For Man!

Why spend days, weeks, even months trying to find the best gift for your husband, brother or teenage son?

When you ask your husband/brother/son what he would like for Christmas this year, what do you think his answer will be?  The standard “I don’t know”, “tools”, “money”, “I’ll love whatever you get me”??

Well I found a few things that Schumacher came out with this year that will be sure to delight all of the men I know. *hint hint – the SL-1 is on the top of my Christmas list*

I recently bought the SHUSL-5 and ended up losing it to my 17-year-old son.  It works great for charging your iPhone.  He was almost dead and plugged his phone into the Fuel Pack and let it charge while watching a show and it didn’t take much time at all for his phone to be fully charged.  Needless to say, I never got the Fuel Pack back and had to buy myself another one!

Whether you decide to go for the SHUSL-3, SHUSL-4 or SHUSL-5, you can’t really go wrong.  These are all great units and will be treasured by all who receive them!

Make sure you also check out the SHUSL-1 and the SHU-SL-360R.  Those are top picks on the Mechanic’s List this year.

The SHUSL-1 is also a great contender when it comes to picking a jump starter to leave in your car this winter.  I recently wrote a blog called Picking the Right Jump Starter For You to give everyone some ideas about which jump starter will work best for your vehicle.  Make sure you check it out before you buy a new power pack.
