Cool desk top gadgets such as mini hoovers and executive memo holders are a great present for guys like this and will undoubtedly come in useful during their long working days.
The Music Lover
If you rarely see him without his iPod in tow and know a few of his favorite bands, why not take a look and see if they are playing close by at some point and grab a couple of tickets for him? Alternatively, you could purchase some band memorabilia such as a T-shirt or even a rare recording (great id they love a classic band that are no longer recording).

Another great alternative is to sponsor something you know is of importance to him; from animals to children you can find the perfect sponsorship.
If you are looking for a gift suitable for the man in your life, take a moment to assess what category he might fit into and consider one of these ideas to give him a present he will be truly grateful for.
