(Family Features) Having trouble picking the perfect holiday gift for that special guy in your life? Check out these unique gift ideas even the most finicky of men would love to get. Whether he digs the decadence of robust red wines, useful techie toys, the speed of a radio controlled ride or the thrill of an outdoor adventure, use this guide to take the guesswork out of holiday shopping and give him what he really wants. After all, every man deserves something special under the tree.

Intense and Elegant, Just Like Him


$13.99 to $21.99

A gift says a lot. Some just say it better. For that special man in your life, Don Miguel Gascón offers three unique wines, each with its own distinct personality and a distinguished Argentine heritage. For complex but confident men on your list, go for the bold with the Colosal Red Blend. A guy who's nothing short of a classic? Make it Malbec. And for that elegant gent with signature style, reserve the Malbec Reserva.

For Guys Who Love Gadgets


Available for under $200 at most e-tailers

Nothing is more annoying than dropping or missing a call because of a weak signal. The zBoost SOHO cell phone signal booster kit increases signals up to 2500 square feet, making it perfect for your man cave or home office. Readily available at most e-tailers for under $200, the device supports multiple users simultaneously with increased voice and data transmission. This holiday, give him the gift of reliability with this helpful tool.

Boatloads of Joy


Prices vary

Put together a gift that can be enjoyed all year long with a fishing and boating package for your outdoor adventurer. Creatively wrap a new rod and reel, add a fishing license to his stocking or spoil him even further with a charter boat trip. He'll be glad for the fishing package instead of the mug when spring arrives. For details on purchasing a fishing license, how to fish and where to fish, visit www.takemefishing.org.

Go for a Drive


$14.99 to $59.99

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
