40th Birthday Gifts For Men With A Nostalgic Flair

May 30, 2008
I read article a while back about buying gifts for men, that I thought would be appropriate on here. Especially, since this story talks about good gifts for men as they hit their 40th birthday. It stuck in my mind a bit, because I turned 40 just a few years ago, and it spoke about how men view their age a little differently then women, and how that psychology can help in getting them good birthday presents.

The article said basically, that men are for more nostalgic then they will admit, and if you keep that in mind, then buying them a 40th birthday present can be easier. Now one of my first thoughts on reading that men were nostalgic, was, well that's utter rubbish. As the piece explained further on, that few men would admit to hit, I was beginning to see what they trying to explain.

I think, that for me it started around the time my father passed away. I was never very nostalgic before that, but afterwards I found myself thinking more about the "good old days". Which is kind of funny, because in my younger days, I always that "good old days" was just old people language. I even remember a song where the lyrics went something like "these are the good old days" in the chorus. I stuck with me, and I believe it to this day. Just sometimes, I have to try and little harder, and remind myself of it.

So, with all this in mind, how do you apply this theory to buying gifts for a guy on his 40th? Well, I'm not exactly sure how. Maybe for some guys it does work. I'm not sure it would work for me . . . still in denial I guess.

Guys do seem to enjoy keeping older things around. Old cars, old collectibles, old clothes, old tools. I always thought I was just a pack rat by nature, but maybe there is something nostalgic about it all. I suppose it could mean that. But, does that mean guys want old stuff for presents? That seems hard to believe. Think of all the guys who like the shiny new electronic gadgets. Cell phones, PDAs, stereos, computers, big honkin' programmable remote controls.

Maybe buying gifts is not the right time to strike a nostalgic time with the big guy. Maybe the right approach, is to give him gifts that he'll want to hang on to forever. Something that strikes an emotional chord that will last for years.
