Do you need to find the perfect gift for a male friend, family member, or significant other? We all know that men can be difficult to please when it comes to choosing presents. They don’t always tell us what they want or like, and how do you buy a gift for ‘the person who has everything?’ If you’re in this quandary right now there’s no need to despair, because we’ve put together a list of the top 7 gifts that every man will love.
1. Something Collectible
If the guy enjoys Star Wars films he may be interested in collecting the memorabilia that comes with it. This could be anything from action figures to posters or Lego kits. If he already has a collection of some sort, it will come alive if you buy an extra addition. He’ll be flattered that you took the time and trouble to discover his interests and to add to his collection.
Many men enjoy keeping decorative rocks or fossils on their bedroom shelves, and there are specialist websites that can help you. You can find photos of fossilized shark teeth that are totally genuine and available to buy. Whether it’s a cow shark, otodus, or snaggletooth shark you can view the prices and even subscribe to weekly email alerts.
2. A Quality Electric Shaver
A lot of men prefer using electric razors over regular blades because they are more convenient and less likely to cause cuts or nicks in their skin. Some brands also offer rotary heads that better suit individual facial structures. Whilst electric shavers are more expensive than regular shaving blades, they also have a longer lifespan. If you’re looking to buy one as a gift, be sure to choose one that comes with all the necessary parts and accessories so your friend can start using it immediately.
There are many brands on the market today offering electric razors in different colors, sizes, prices, and designs. This way you can find something to suit your budget and their personal style.
3. A New Watch
Watches come in different styles and designs, so you can ensure it fits his personality (classy or quirky) or lifestyle (e.g. sports proof, weatherproof). There are many brands to choose from (both new and vintage) including Citizen, Invicta, Casio, Seiko, and Bulova.
Some men prefer function over style and vice versa. There are also more casual options including sports watches with analog displays and light colors such as white, yellow, or pink. If you’re looking for a watch that is more formal and stylish, men’s dress watches are perfect as they have leather bands that go well with things like suits. You might even consider getting him a smartwatch so he has access to things like weather reports, texts, and emails.
4. An Unexpected Getaway
For the element of surprise, you could take steps to plan the perfect vacation. A weekend getaway is a great way to show your man how much you care for him. Consider planning it on your own without his knowledge until he gets home from work one night (or perhaps when he wakes up). Then tell him that if he can pack quickly enough there’s somewhere exciting for you both to go.
If you can afford it, why not plan something that lasts a little longer? It could be anything from camping to going abroad and staying in a hotel for a week. There may be somewhere he’s always wanted to go, or a favorite location connected to a hobby or interest.
5. Cologne Or After-Shave
Both cologne and aftershave are great gifts for men. It’s important to discover which scents he likes before buying him a gift set. If you choose wrongly, it could be an expensive mistake, so it’s advisable to (pardon the pun) sniff around his toiletry collection. Who knows – there may be something that he’s nearly run out of.
Some types of cologne are:
– fresh colognes
– sporty colognes
– cologne for evenings out
Aftershave is something that not all men use, but if he does, it comes in many textures and smells. It’s also worth knowing that there are scented moisturizers available too. If you’re looking for something a little different, why not buy him a cologne hamper or cologne gift set? They come with everything he could need to smell good, all stored in one place.
6. A Grooming Set
This can help your man to stay on top of his game and look fresh at all times. They are extremely versatile (they can be used by women too!) and they’re perfect for traveling as well. Some grooming sets include nail clippers, tweezers and scissors.
If this guy has a beard or mustache, buy something that includes a beard grooming kit. He can use a hair trimmer for shaving or edging different parts of the body (not just facial). A good quality product will usually be cordless so that he doesn’t have to worry about tripping over wires during use.
7. A Leather Wallet
Whilst leather wallets are a pretty standard gift, it’s always nice to have an upgrade. There is no reason why he shouldn’t be carrying around something that looks and feels great, especially when the recipient will get regular use out of it. You could buy one that’s made from 100% genuine leather. It’s even possible to buy wallets that have been handcrafted in Italy with modern style lines.
Some more expensive wallets come equipped with RFID-blocking technology which means that even if someone does manage to scan his card through his pocket or purse, they won’t be able to obtain any information. Leather wallets virtually last forever if taken care of properly, so why not have one engraved with a personal comment that they can cherish?
Hopefully one or two of these options have appealed to you, and more importantly, would appeal to him! Why not go online and research some exciting options now? The financial investment will be worth it when you see the look of delight on his face, and the joy he will get from your kindness.
