Unique Gifts for Men
Finding him the right gift can make anyone’s head begin to spin. Taking special notes of certain things will help you be the successful gift giver that he wants in his life.
Listen to him: Often times, men give hints to what they want in the form of
complaining. So when he says things like “Why don’t they make soft baby snugly blankets for adults?” Get him the softest king size blankie to snuggle down with him under. When he says “I’m so tired in the morning I can hardly make my coffee.” Buy him a coffee maker with a digital timer to set the night before, or even better, a single cup coffee machine. Remember to remain thoughtful about his specific likes. No man who hates coffee should get a coffee shop gift card. The most important thing is to pay careful attention before the day you bestow it on him.
What most men won’t admit: They love luxury things that they find to unmanly to buy themselves. You will be their hero when he opens the like. High end grooming products that leave his skin silky smooth after a fresh shave, or a bath robe that feels like a baby bunny against his skin will melt his heart. Unless you have yourself a Will Farrell type of man, go unique not weird. You know what I’m talking about, most men believe it or not just aren’t going to really appreciate the crochet elephant boxers with a built in trunk. Try to think meaningful, not items that will end up collecting dust in the bottom drawer. Unique gifts for men should be personal if you want the appreciation to last. If he is a man who is close to you, dad, or boyfriend, you can get the inside scoop. Take a look at the things he already has to help you deduce what he’s lacking and what sounds like something he would like but doesn’t have. They like sentimental more than you think. For the man who has it all think personalized: like pint glasses for the cold beer, or bamboo cutting board for the man who loves his culinary kitchen. Personalized items don’t always have his name, they can boast his company name or his favorite saying.
What not to do: Don’t feed his addictions with your gifts. If your man is an alcoholic, don’t buy him those beer glasses. If he lacks motivation and lays around all day, then maybe the new PS4 won’t be the best gift to promote his well being, even if it promotes his wants. Don’t push your own agenda with your gift. A gift that’s really what you’d like; such as that new suit that you know he’ll hate, but you’d love to see him wear is a selfish and sad counterfeit. Your gift for him needs to be unique to promote is identity, and what he loves. Make it “Gift of the Magi” special. Finding that gift that will make him smile now and then smile again years later when he remembers it, should be your motive.
