Men are impossibly hard to shop for. Ask a guy what he wants, and nine times out of 10, you’re sure to a get a grunt or “I don’t know” in response. If you’re shopping for a guy who already has everything, you’re in a whole other type of pickle. I sat down and came up with some gift ideas that will appeal to any guy, no matter his age or personality. If you’re on the hunt for a perfect gift for a special guy in your life, whether it be for his birthday, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or your anniversary, something on this list is sure to appeal to his gifting senses. Consider his favorite hobbies, take a look below, and find something he’ll definitely enjoy.
You Can’t Go Wrong With Personalization
When it doubt, personalize. That’s been my gifting philosophy for years and it has yet to let me down. Think about what the birthday boy likes to do and consider how you can put your own spin on it. Maybe he’s a wine connoisseur; grab a bottle from www.etchingexpressions.com and get a fun message or a picture emblazoned on its front. He’ll get to sip the contents and keep the bottle as a memento, and it will surely be a one of a kind present he’s never received before. Is he a dude that hits the fairway more than he heads into the office? Some customized golf apparel from Custom Ink won’t steer you wrong—you can even sweeten the deal with some personalized golf balls that he won’t be able to wait to take a whack at. Taking the time to find something unique for him is a gesture he will truly appreciate and after all, what did mom always say? It’s the thought that counts.
A Luxury Lover
If the guy in question is a lover of luxury and not afraid to admit it, consider purchasing him a pampering day. That’s right, I said pampering—where in the rule book of life does it say that guys don’t deserve a little TLC and rest and relaxation? Consider a massage package to help him get out the stresses of the week. Set him up with a gift certificate to a local spa resort or sports massage therapist for a gift of relaxation he won’t expect. Want to make your gift a more permanent luxury? Consider investing in a massage chair for him that will be the perfect place to relax after a taxing day at the office.
An Out of the Blue Adventure
Is the guy in question something of an adventurer? A guy who loves to try new things and will never turn down a challenge? If that sounds familiar, you might want to consider hopping on the increasingly popular trend of experience gifts. What’s an experience gift? It’s quite possibly the coolest gift idea I’ve heard in recent years. Websites like Funsherpa.com or Excitations.com have search filters that show you what types of “experiences” you can take part in within your geographical area. If you’re near bodies of water, expect kayaking adventures, white water rafting trips, and even scuba diving excursions. Many cities have luxury car experiences, whether the guy in question can speed down tracks in a car he never thought he would even sit in. Even still, you can find other experiences, like skydiving trips or bungee jumping adventures. This is definitely the right fit for a guy who promises he’s down to try anything once.
A Plane Ticket
If he’s a travel junkie, support his dreams of seeing the world with a plane ticket. Out of your budget? Did you know that you can buy airline gift certificates that he can use to the airline of his choice? Help him put some dedicated money towards his next adventure and light a fire under him that will see him planning a journey in the near future.
If you’re shopping for a man who truly wants for nothing, gift buying can seem like a chore rather than a fun celebratory task. If you’re struggling to come up with unique, one of a kind gift ideas for him, peruse this list and find the perfect present, no matter what occasion you’re celebrating.
