Gifting men!

With Father’s day on the way, my thoughts are drawn to what to gift the men in my life. I always seem to find it so much harder to buy for men. I am not sure if it is just me, or if it is a similar problem for most people. It is not just Father’s day, it may be an anniversary present for my husband, male birthdays, and Christmas presents. I always find it difficult. 

Some tips

  • Try to think about what hobbies or sports the person enjoys. If they are a passionate football fan, then perhaps something from their team’s store would be well received. 
  • What is their character like? While we may think that a mug with the face of their grandchild would be a fantastic present, to the man who is not at all sentimental it may not be the best choice. 
  • Think about past gifts. If you often end up buying the same thing (socks, mug, smellies, etc) then it may be time to change the game plan. 
  • How about something that would make their lives easier and give them more time to find new hobbies? This may be a good choice for the man with no real interests or hobbies who says they don’t know what they want or tells you not to worry about getting them anything. 
  • Try and put yourself in their shoes. While a pool cue may not seem like a very exciting gift to us, to the man who loves a game of pool and goes regularly to play, it will mean a lot. 
  • How about an experience or day out? While these can be rather pricey, perhaps you could make your own voucher and put together something special for less money.
