Men are notoriously hard to buy for. Whatever their age, whatever their relation to you, you probably struggle to think of a good gift to buy for them. The aim of this gift guide is to give you plenty of ideas for all budgets! See if anything grabs your attention here:
A Magazine Subscription
A magazine subscription could be the perfect gift for the man in your life. I mean, there are hundreds of magazines to choose from, and when you buy them altogether you save a fortune on buying them separately. You can buy magazines for men who love cars, fitness, and even women. It’s a great gift as something comes through the post every week/month, so it’s like a regular gift!
An Experience Day
They say one of the greatest things you can buy for somebody is an experience, and I’m inclined to believe that. You have so many experience days to choose from, it could be difficult to decide. For car lovers, there are driving days. For thrillseekers, there are bungee jumps and skydives. And for those who just like a little adventure, you could go on a hot balloon ride. There are so many more too; even zombie apocalypse experience days for hardcore thrillseekers!
A Games Console/Game
Most men like to play games. I’m not talking sudoku here either; they like to play the latest version of Grand Theft Auto or Fifa on the newest console. It all depends on what your budget is, but a new console could be an option for a special occasion. A simple game could be a good choice if you’re on a bit of a budget!
A Man Bag
If the man in your life is very on trend and likes to look their best, then how about a man bag? A quality man bag can be used for all kinds of things, from carrying important documents, to using for an overnight stay. Some men can be a little afraid of the man bag, but there’s no need. It’s quickly becoming the norm for men everywhere!
A Good Watch
A wrist without a good watch is no wrist at all. Why not treat the man in your life to a good watch and decorate their wrist? There are so many different styles to choose from, you’re bound to find something suitable. Masonic watches are unique and look great, but you have cheaper fashion watches to consider too. There’s something for all budgets!
A Grooming Kit
Whether the man you’re buying for is a full on metrosexual or is new to the whole male grooming business, there is no harm in purchasing a grooming kit for them. Those who already groom themselves will appreciate it, while those who don’t can be gently introduced to it. There’s nothing wrong with taking care of your appearance!
Bluetooth speakers are a great gift for those who love music. Make sure you do your research on the best speakers. Some are loud but have a bad battery life, and vice versa. Don’t just go out and buy any speaker without researching it first. The best bluetooth speaker will be compact, loud, and have a good battery life.
A Spotify Subscription
Introducing the man in your life to Spotify could be one of the best things you ever do for them. Spotify is a wonderful addition to anybodies life; listen to hundreds of thousands of different artists all day long, in the car, in the gym, wherever you are!
A Weights Set
For the man who wants to get fit, a weights set could be the perfect gift. Just be sure they are heavy enough and that they have the space to store them for them to be a great gift! You may also want to get them a PT session or two if they don’t already know how to use them.
Boxers are a pretty basic gift, but men always need them. Quality boxers are a real treat, so splash out on some Calvin Kleins or something similar to make the man in your life feel like a celebrity!
Another great gift for the music lovers; quality headphones. Don’t automatically go out and buy Dre beats though – there are so many other options to consider.
A Leather Wallet
Men always need a wallet, even if they refuse to embrace the man bag. A leather wallet will last a long time, and develop character the more you use it. It looks great and will be a long lasting gift.
Simple, but effective; a good quality beer! Buy a crate, some bottles, or go all out and buy a keg. Whatever you think suitable for the occasion. You could brew your own in advance to show that you’ve put a lot of thought and effort into this gift. You could even give them a brewing kit of their own!
A Tool Set
Tool sets come in all different shapes and sizes for different budgets. You can get toolsets for cheap, or you can spend thousands on a great one. Consider how into DIY your man is and how likely they are to use this set often. Do some research before you buy so you know you have a quality set.
A Good Book
The written word is a brilliant gift to give; you just can’t beat a good book! This isn’t a gift all men will appreciate though, so ensure that they like to read first. You could give a story book or a self help book, whichever you think will make a difference. Books can change lives in amazing ways!
Something every man needs is a high quality pair of shoes. Whether this is a great pair of sneakers or some brogues, they’ll love owning some luxurious shoes. Make sure you know their size and style before going shoe shopping!
I hope you find some inspiration on this gift guide so you can treat the men in your life to amazing gifts!
