Whether you’re shopping for your husband, brother or father, choosing gifts for men is never easy. The main problem is that when it comes to buying for him, it can be a real struggle coming up with a fun and unique idea. Often, when we’re gift buying, we ask people what they want, to get a few ideas, but men tend to state that they ‘don’t need anything’. (This is seriously unhelpful and makes shopping for them even harder.)
While picking the perfect gift for the man in your life can be tricky, it doesn’t have to be. To make gift buying a little easier, I thought that I would share a few ideas with you here, that all men are sure to love.
Sports themed gifts
Almost every guy supports one sport or another, so a sports themed gift could be perfect. Think about what his favorite sport is, as well as what team or player he supports, and use this to come up with some gift ideas.
Tickets to watch a match are always a safe bet, as is memorabilia. If he likes to collect stuff, he might love a selection of vintage memorabilia of his favorite sports team or player. You can find some fantastic vintage pieces on selling sites like eBay, so make sure to have a look on there.
If he has always wanted to give a particular sport a try, why not book him in for lessons or an experience day? Men love trying new things, especially if it’s something that they’ve wanted to try for a while.
If the guy that you’re buying for loves messing around with gadgets, something technological could make the perfect gift. The good news is that there are so many options to choose from, that whatever his interests, there should be something that’s perfect.
Ask yourself what his hobbies include. If, for example, he loves taking photos, why not buy him a top of the range camera? It’s important to choose him a gift he’ll cherish and use, so something that relates to an interest he has is a good idea.
Or, for instance, if he’s crazy about remote control cars and helicopters, consider treating him to the ultimate boy’s toy – a drone. These might not come cheap, but if you pick him a good one – check out the Pro Photo UAV website, he’ll have hours of fun with it.
If he doesn’t have a tablet of his own, this could make the perfect gift. Today tablets are affordable to buy and have so many uses, and because of this make great gifts. While ipads are the most sought after device, there are plenty of tablet designs that are just as good and a lot cheaper. (To find out the best makes, have a look online.)
If all else fails and you’re stuck for ideas, edible gifts can be a great success. When we think of edible treats, we often think of sweet things. However, savoury foods can also make great gifts. How about treating him to a hamper made up of all his fave treats? Instead of buying the hamper, get creative and make it yourself. Ready made hampers can be a little pricey, so going down the DIY route it best. Plus, that way, you can customize it just for him.
All you need is a basket, some tissue paper, ribbon, and a selection of his favorite food and drink. Pack the hamper with lots of bits and bobs that you know he’ll love, and you can make him the most incredible gift.
So there you have it, my guide to exciting gift ideas that all men will love.
