#1 – Look to their hobbies
Men tend to have one or two things that they love doing with their time, and so these can produce some great ideas for gifts.
- Cyclist – get a book of amazing rides to do
- Walkers – get a map of their favourite walking area
- Travel lovers could receive a map to scratch off where they’ve been
- Fitness enthusiasts would love a personal training session at their gym
- Maybe they collect watches – and watches are expensive – but you could think outside the box and get them a gorgeous watch case to store them in…
and the list could go on and on!
#2 – Experiences rule!
Men tend to like ‘doing’ stuff – and physical activity is a favourite of most – so an activity based experience would work fantastically.
I once got my hubby a driving experience in an Astin Martin (his favourite car of all time) – and he loved it!
You could do car, bike, sports, cooking, making etc…. – the list is endless!
#3 – Food and drink are always winners…
Have a brainstorm about their favourite food and drinks – because you’re bound to come up with some great ideas that show that you know them well.
For example: –
- A burger lover could get a recipe book specifically about burgers, or a burger press so they can make their own.
- A man who loves spicy food may love a grow your own chilli set
- The self crowned BBQ king would no doubt love a BBQ set
I used this one year for my hubby – who loves a glass of whisky occasionally.
I got him his favourite bottle, PLUS an iceball which he totally loves.
The iceball just stays in the freezer and is ready when he wants to have an evening tipple. It is GREAT for a whiskey lover because it doesn’t melt like an ice cube, and so doesn’t dilute the drink at all.
#4 – Gadgets are great
Men really do seem to have a love for gadgets (or is that just my hubby!).
Whether it be something related to computers, tools, gardening, games, tech at home, etc… – you can find some brilliant ideas out there!
#5 – Go for grooming
Men like to pamper themselves just as much as women, and some are too shy to get things for themselves – so why not go for something beauty related?
- Spa treatment
- Spa visit
- Proper shave
I hope you love these gift ideas for men, I really do think that they offer something that little bit different…
… and I can’t wait to hear what then men in your life think of your choices when their Birthday or Christmas, or any other special occasion, comes around!
