I’m a shopaholic, I admit it, and have no problem saying it. However, when it comes to finding the perfect gift, especially for guys, that’s where I have trouble. Father’s day will be upon us sooner rather than later, so I’m already trying to think of the perfect gift.
I’ve searched the internet, looking for some ideas, but I guess it really matters on the type of guy you’ve got to buy for. Gifts for Men can vary from one to the other…It’s not as easy as just a diamond (like it is for us girls).
The man in your life might love a custom made pair of converse, or perhaps a complete DVD set of their favorite movie, technology is always a win too.
An ultra cool thing to give I found is always something that’s unexpected, something they wouldn’t buy for themselves. Maybe you know their favorite song, buy them the album. A fun geeky gift is always a surprise too. Piano hands, slip them on your fingers and he’s got hours of entertainment making his own music.
What about something practical? Guys never get practical gifts, maybe the guy you need to buy for is single, or a single dad. Or maybe he just likes to cook. Pots and Pans could be an idea, or any type of housewares. Guys need those things too.
Clothes! Men never buy their own clothes, and when they do, come on ladies admit it, they’re never right. Get him something like a new jacket, something he may not typically buy for himself.
Then of course there’s the hands down, usual best gift ever, a game system or something for their game system that they’ve wanted and have been dropping hints about. As much as we get frustrated by their game playing, it makes them happy…
Dinner! Men love to eat! How about a night out at an amazing steakhouse, all paid for by YOU!
Then you have the dad’s in your life… As much as they hate to admit it, I think a gift from their children, picked out or hand made is the sweetest thing, and something they’ll always cherish. Expensive gifts aren’t always needed.
Sports fan? How about tickets to a game? And make it a surprise, a ticket for him and his buddy, rather than you enduring the long boring game (that’s if you aren’t into it.).
What’s the best gift you’ve ever given a guy?
