Getting Gifts For Guys
Struggling for a gift idea for a guy? Don’t settle for the usual gift of socks and aftershave. Here are a few unique present ideas that are likely to be appreciated.
Consider an experience
Buying a physical gift for the man who already has everything can be difficult. Instead, when looking for unique gifts for men, consider buying an experience instead. This could be anything from a food tour to a flight in a two-man plane. Make it an experience that they’ll want to try – you don’t want to waste money on a flying experience on someone who hasn’t got a head for heights.
Buy bespoke clothing
When buying clothing, don’t just settle for something generic like a tie or, as already mentioned, a pair of socks. Go for an accessory that’s a little more unique such as a hat or a nice scarf or a pair of designer shades. Alternatively, consider a trendy jacket or a pair of shoes for everyday use.
Help their hobbies and interests
If the guy you’re buying for has a passion for something, why not buy a gift centered around this passion? Though you should be careful of buying pieces of tech and accessories such as guitar gadgets and sports equipment. Unless they’ve hinted they needed a specific thing like a baseball bat or hockey pads or mentioned a specific gadget they want, they may already have it or may be particular when it comes to tech brands. Instead, think of experiences surrounding their hobby or useful advice books. There are also lots of fun novelty items out there that could make a nice complementary gift such as themed chocolates, key rings and phone cases.
Personalize a gift
There may be ways of personalizing certain gifts for more of unique touch. This could be a gift such as an engraved tankard for drinking beer out of or a chocolate with a personalized message on it. Clothing meanwhile can be monogrammed or stitched to contain a name. Such a gift shows that you’ve put thought into it and that you haven’t just picked the first item off the shelf.
Many men like a practical gift. This could be a fun gadget or a useful tool centered around their hobby. Alternatively, for those guys like building things and taking on personal projects, a craft kit of some kind could be a worthy hands-on gift. This could allow someone to craft their own beer, grow their own chili plants or even build their own robot. Look for something that they will have an interest in so that it doesn’t just remain unopened for years to come.
