Are you looking for the perfect gift for the man in your life- whether it’s a partner, father, grown up son or friend? It can be tricky buying gifts for anyone but men are especially difficult. When you buy a gift for someone, you want to know that it’s going to be used and enjoyed, not just sit in a drawer and collect dust- here are a few ideas to avoid that from happening.
Gadgets and tech gifts always feature heavily in men’s gift guides, and that’s because they’re a pretty foolproof option. These are things that most of us are going to use and enjoy, and with them being more expensive they make good ‘main presents’ for special occasions when you want to spoil someone. You could go all out with a phone, tablet, laptop, computer, tv or hobby gadget like a drone or VR headset. Or you could go with more of an accessory- a good pair of speakers or headphones. Tech gadgets are fun and genuinely useful, they’re just more expensive so might not be an option for everyone.
Food and Drink
Let’s face it, we all enjoy delicious food and drink. If you want to treat a man in your life, then something tasty will always go down well. This could be anything from a nice bottle of spirits or champagne to homemade cookies. It could be a voucher for their favourite restaurant, or a hamper of food and drink items carefully selected by you. If you know what kinds of things they like to eat or drink then this makes an easy choice and is something that will actually be used and enjoyed.
Buying clothes isn’t really recommended when it comes to gift giving- unless you know their style and size extremely well. However there are lots of stylish accessories you could consider that most men will enjoy. A new wallet, a good quality leather belt, a scarf or a tie could all be things to consider- sites like John Henric have all of these in one place. If you’re choosing an accessory for someone else, your best bet is to choose something classic instead of being loud or bold. Plainer designs will appeal to most people meaning its a far safer bet. Aftershave, skincare and grooming products will also be enjoyed by a lot of men, if you know their personality and that they already use these things to look their best then these gifts are sure to be utilised.
Finally, if you’re buying for a person who’s not really into material things- or on the other end of the spectrum who already seems to own everything- an experience gift is a good way to go. This could be anything from a hot air balloon ride to a pilot lesson to a drive in a luxury car. You could gift them tickets to a concert or a sporting event, or even a mini break of full vacation! There’s something for most budgets, and best of all you could use this as an opportnity to spend time together. If nothing on the shelves seems like it will be quite right then go down this route instead.
