The holidays will be here before you know it. If you’re still trying to find the perfect gift for the man in your life, there are a few suggestions that might help to point you in the right direction.
There’s no doubt about it – most guys love certain gifts. Some may be obvious – like tickets to a football game – while others may be a little less apparent – like white gold wedding rings for men.
However, there’s one thing for certain: if you choose one of these 10 gifts for your guy this holiday season, he’s sure to love it!
What guy doesn’t love a new tool? Whether it’s a set of wrenches, a multitool, a small flashlight, drill bits or any kind of power tool – if its home will be in the garage or tool shed, chances are your man will love it. (This is true assuming that he actually needs the tool, so do your homework before you go shopping.)
2. Video Games:
If the man in your life was born during the late 1960s or afterward, video games hold an irresistible draw. Check out what kind he likes to play, what’s missing from his collection and start shopping!
3. Outdoor Equipment:
If your guy likes to spend time outside, whether it’s camping or just taking an occasional day hike, look for a good piece of outdoor equipment he would use. Start in a local sporting goods store and look for a pocket knife, water bottles, a backpack or any other useful item for his outdoor adventures.
4. Men’s Jewelry:
This may not sound like an obvious choice, but the truth is that men’s jewelry is one of the hottest new fashion trends. You’ll find a huge selection both online and at local jewelry stores – from cool contemporary bracelets to white gold wedding rings for men, such as a domed 10k band – the perfect jewelry gift for your guy is out there.
5. Car Stuff:
Men love cars, so it’s hard to go wrong with a car-related gift. Try to find out if there’s something he’s wanted for his car or truck that he doesn’t have. If that doesn’t pan out, buy him a model or a toy car or truck. No matter how old he is, if it’s car-related, he’ll love it!
Stuffing his stocking with tickets is a sure man pleaser. Whether they’re tickets to a local sporting event (the best kind!) or a couple of tickets to a concert or movie he wants to see, the man in your life will love having an event to attend. Better yet, make it something you can enjoy together!
7. Foodie Gifts:
If your guy likes eating, foodie gifts are the way to go. If he’s a cook, choose something for the kitchen – from spices to sauces to a man’s cookbook. If he likes to grill, find a nice set of barbeque tools. If he loves to eat as long as someone else cooks it, consider a gift certificate to his favorite restaurant.
If the man in your life enjoys an adult beverage from time to time (or more often!), buy him a really good bottle of whatever his favorite is – specialty beer, whisky, scotch, gin, rum, vodka – whatever that may be. Make it something extra special that he wouldn’t normally buy for himself.
9. Video/DVD Collections:
Think about his favorite movies or TV shows. If you can name it, chances are you’ll be able to find a collection of videos or DVDs that he’ll spend countless hours watching. If movies or TV shows don’t appeal to him, look for collectible sporting events.
10. Briefcase or Men’s Bag:
If your guy is a businessman, a new briefcase might be the perfect gift. Or consider one of the new men’s bags that are currently popular. Most are made of soft leather and large enough to hold a cell phone, a laptop computer, workout clothes and anything else he may carry on a regular basis.
Finding the right gift for the man in your life isn’t as difficult as it may seem. Just consider all the possibilities – from his favorite beverage to a special power tool to white gold wedding rings for men – and choose the one you know he’ll love this holiday season!
