I like to read gift guides to get some advice and gift idea inspiration. So I thought I would share a gift guide with some ideas for the man in your life. Whether you have a husband or boyfriend, or it is your dad or a teenage son, they will all have birthdays this year. The gifts could also work for valentine’s day, anniversary or other special occasion. It can just be a struggle to know what to get them sometimes, can’t it? So if you need some inspiration, read on.
Aftershave & Cologne
This always works well for anyone because who doesn’t want to smell nice? They all bathe and shave too, right, so it is a must have. It is always good if you pick out the scent and you like how they smell too. Go for more musky, woody scents, rather than floral.
Have you heard of ‘man crates’? It is just a term for a hamper for men and it is totally a thing! Grab a wooden crate, or even a box or wicker basket if you’d like. Then fill it with some of their favourite things. It could include their favourite foods or sweets. If you are feeling extra creative then how about filling it with some home baked goods? Some male grooming products will go down well too. Does your man love DIY? If so, you could go for a man crate filled with DIY essentials or tools.
How about adding some fun games or toys like a remote control helicopter or something more quirky like a record player? There are a lot of options around, you just need to plan ahead and shop around. Gifts like this are great because they are a bit more unusual. Made just for your man. Have a look at some more unusual gifts for him at Cuckooland.com.
If they drink, they getting them their favourite tipple will be a winner. You could even get them something fun like a ‘brew your own beer’ kit or ‘make your own wine’ set. There are a variety of these on the market at varying prices. It also doubles up as something fun that you can do together.
Clothes & Accessories
In my experience, men don’t buy themselves as many clothes or accessories as women do. It is more when they need something new, rather than just wanting something new. So how about treating them to something new? You could get them some new boxers or briefs or socks or slippers. If you have a little more to spend, you could splash out on a new watch or sunglasses. They are signature items for men! Other cools things would be some new workout gear if that is their thing, or perhaps a new hat or a leather satchel. There are a lot of options so just think of your men and your budget and go from there.
Good luck with your gift buying. If you plan enough in advance, you could make sure that they have the best birthday or valentine’s day ever!
