Women can easily shop for themselves, but when it comes to picking the perfect gift for her man she usually has trouble, figuring out what he actually wants. Throughout history, men have secretly cringed at the thought of opening up another sweater, pack of socks, set of tools (it’s equivalent to buying you a vacuum cleaner) or any other traditional male gift. Yet have no fear, here’s a short guide on picking the perfects gifts for your man. Take the time and find him a great gift now and the effort will surely be reciprocated on Valentines day.
First, let’s do some prep work.
Take a look inside your man’s closet and overall living space. In order to find the right gift, you will need to figure out what type of man you have. If he’s a shirt and tie guy, you shouldn’t get him something a jeans and t-shirt guy wears. If he doesn’t own a dress shirt, you shouldn’t buy him a tie, to motivate him to dress up more, there are other times to upgrade his wardrobe. Lastly, get him something he actually wants and not something you want him to have.
Shirt and Tie guy
Bow ties are the latest fashion trend for men. Choose a bow tie that goes with your man’s taste in color. The great thing about bow ties is, they can are appropriate for multiple occasions. Whether worn with a suit, sports coat, dress pants or jeans, a nice bow tie will be appreciated by any man, regardless of his fashion sense. A pair of shoes, a monogrammed dress shirt or tie clip/cuff links are also great gift choices.
For the guy who loves having the latest in technology, get him a wireless charging pad. This handy device will allow him to charge is his phone, laptop or tablet by laying it on the pad. No more multiple wires or chargers.
Another choice would be a smart watch. You’ve probably seen these “Dick Tracey” gadget watches for android. but there are others that connect to all phones. Other options are tablets, Bluetooth headphones and stun gun (yes) iPhone cases.
For the man who likes to capture his meals and throw them on an open flame or BBQ, will love a personalized branding iron. They will spend countless moment and take plenty pics of their creations, while always thanking their lady for giving a gift they’ve always wanted. A bottle of his favorite whiskey (Brandy for me) would be a great gift for him. Nothing like warming up with your lady and a glass of cognac. Other ideas are fishing equipment, hunting tent and cold weather clothing.
Jeans and T-shirt guy
For the man who’s most comfortable in his sweat pants and sneakers, a pair of Timberland boots would be a great gift. “Tims” are stylish, yet practical footwear for the cold of winter. A utility knife is another great idea. Gone are the days of grand-pop’s Swiss Army knife, most are now equipped with screwdrivers, LED light, bottle opener and other useful tools. You can also try a heavy-duty sweater, a utility knife or any jersey/sweatshirt with his favorite team or player.
Men love monogrammed gifts
If you want him to absolutely love any gift you get for him, get it personalized and/or monogrammed. Men like to see things with their name, initials, title something that makes it unique. So whether it’s an engraving on a new watch, initials monogrammed on a dress shift or a best husband mug he will love it and cherish it.
Lastly, any gift you choose for your man must be given from the heart. He will likely cherish anything you took time to select and gave some thought to it.
