How To Choose The Perfect Gift For Any Man In Your Life

By Vanessa B

It’s that time of the year when you have to make one of the most difficult decisions we all face; What to give a man in your life for a gift. Whether it be your husband, boyfriend, father, brother, or son, men are notoriously hard to shop for. This list might help you to find the perfect gift for all the well-deserving males you hold dear to you. 

Classic Accessories

Accessories can include watches, hats, belts, wallets, sunglasses or even socks, depending on your budget. The beauty of this idea is that it can be suitable for your father, son, husband, father-in-law and so on and you likely won’t need to check the size. Make sure, though, that the gift you choose is of good quality and matches the recipient’s tastes and lifestyle. Is he an outdoorsy, rugged type? Or does he prefer more sophisticated, business-like attire? Choose accordingly.

Personalized Accessories 

Everybody wants to feel special and thought of, and the guys in your life are no exception. Touch his heart by gifting him a personalized accessory, i.e., a gift that bears his name, a sweet message or an inside joke. Personalization can mean different things to different people, but most commonly, it means a gift carrying a name or monogram. 

Anniversary and Fathers Day Gifts

Surprise your loved one by giving him something that makes the occasion truly memorable. There are lots of unique Father’s Day gifts for grandad online, for example, many of which can be personalised. All you have to do is browse the website, select a gift and place your order, easy as pie. Do you have a guy close to you celebrating a wedding anniversary? Mark the occasion by ordering a gift according to the traditional anniversary materials, bearing his interests in mind. For example, for a fifth year anniversary you could choose a nice set of wooden kitchen utensils (if he likes to cook!) 

Bar Accessories

Since many men keep a bar or mini-bar in their homes, it’s usually good to gift them something that complements the liquor cabinet. You can consider giving your man a truly unique gift; bar accessories. Decanters, shakers, flasks, bottle openers, whiskey stones, glasses – the possibilities here and fun and endless. Make sure that your gift is of high quality because it will be used by the recipient very frequently and can be something to show off to guests. 

Film and Entertainment

Surprise your brother by buying him some movie tickets, or a cinema season pass. This is great if he’s a movie buff and follows all the latest Hollywood flicks. Alternatively, you can even buy a Netflix or other streaming subscription for him that doesn’t require leaving the house. 

Holiday Packages

If your spouse has been working very hard lately, you can reward him by gifting an affordable holiday package. You can buy your package at attractive rates from a good deal of travel and leisure companies. Get the best rates during the off-season. 

Books and Comics

There is no better gift than books and comics. Encourage your boy to read more by gifting him timeless classics, or even modern classics to add to his collection. The right books are enriching and never go out of fashion. You can also give a book that means a lot to you and/or inscribe it with a note in the front cover.  

Clothes

It is said that clothes make the man. Some men are born stylish while others have style thrust upon them by well-intentioned gift givers who understand that faded graphic tees and holey sneakers just won’t do at a certain point. How about gifting your husband a luxurious hoodie, knit sweater or shirt to elevate his everyday wardrobe? Sneakers or some nice house slippers will also do the same job. Just check the size first, try to make sure whatever you buy is to his taste, and keep the receipt in case!
