We all know that men are the hardest people to shop for, no matter the occasion! The best thing you can do is to go for something that is as personal as possible. If you still can’t think of anything, you may be in need of a few ideas. Before you find yourself in a Pinterest haze for hours and hours, and before you bother asking (as you will no doubt be given a simple- “I don’t mind”) have a look at these ideas that you might not have thought of before. Try to adapt them in ways that work for the man in your life because everyone is different!
The best thing you can do for a gift is to go for something that is personal to the two of you. Do you have a joke that only the two of you know about? Find something to do with that. The best place to look for a specialized gift is online. Maybe you have a film that you both love and are always quoting? Have a look for something to do with that, maybe there’s a screening going on somewhere that you can make a trip off. Or maybe there’s a signed DVD going on eBay. It shouldn’t take you too long to think of anything when you base it off of personal things between the two of you.
Another thing that would be ideal for you to do would be to go for something that is related to their hobbies. For example, if they love their beer- like most men- maybe you could get them an engraved pint glass or if they’ve never tried to make their own, a beer making kit. Or you could look online for a unique beer that they had on a holiday that they loved. You would have to tailor this to the man’s personal hobbies of course.
Getting them something that they love is quite a hard task. So if you don’t want to go down this route, there are plenty of more fail-safe options that you could go for that would be a bit easier for you and they are probably more likely to love! You could go for something slightly more sentimental. An example of this would be to find a beautiful picture of the two of you, perhaps from when you were younger and put it in a frame for them. Or you could get loads of pictures of him and all the special people in his life and create more of a college.
One of the things that might appreciate the most, however, could be an experience or something to remember rather than an object. An experience based gift doesn’t mean you have to spend loads of money though! You could take him to a beautiful town that he loves and buy him a nice dinner. Or you could get him to the cinema for an upcoming film he’s excited about. Which is something that you would have to tailor to the person to get the most enjoyment out of! An experience could be the best idea of all because everyone loves having something to look forward to!
