What Personalised Gifts For Him Really Say About Him...

Aug 9, 2008
The giving of Gifts can be a very revealing experience as it can often say a great deal about the gift-giver, including what they think about the person they are buying for. The monetary value of the gift can sometimes give an indication of how much the person really means to the one doing the buying and it may even be possible to get an idea about the presence of a romantic spark, or even just a little soft spot. Whether or not the person giving the Gifts wants to make such feelings known however is an entirely different matter.

And given that gift-giving cultures and etiquette differ between countries and cultures, for those visiting friends or family members from overseas - irrespective of whether the Gifts are designed to honour a birthday, or are a response to a dinner invitation - it is worth bearing in mind a few little pointers. After all, Gifts are supposed to be designed to please, so it is worth making sure all of the little loose ends have been tied up in advance.

For example, in Japan, when giving Gifts it is a good idea to avoid multiples of four, as such combinations are considered unlucky. So, glass sets in groups of four might not be so smashing and chocolate multipacks might not taste so sweet. And you might find that when receiving Gifts, a Japanese person may refuse once or twice in order to be polite. Having said that though, gift giving in Japan is an important part of the local culture, so your efforts will no doubt be highly appreciated - especially if it is something that reflects your own cultural heritage.

In China, although relatively close to the islands of Japan, the culture is a little different - items should be given as pairs rather than as individual objects. And given the importance of harmony and balance in Chinese culture it is not hard to see why.

But what of the gift itself? If you're buying gifts for him, it is often a good idea to make it as personal as possible - but what would be appropriate and what messages will such a gift convey?

Truly personalised gifts are an outstanding way to give someone something that is truly unique. And for the man who may think he has everything, no matter where he's from, personalised gifts are an ideal way to let him know - in a way that will only delight - that there are some things out there left to discover.

For the man who likes his footie, those looking to buy a personalised gifts can avoid scoring an own goal by giving a Personalised Football Book. Available for all of the UK's biggest football teams, this outstanding personalised gift will give any football-mad man an insight into his favourite club, and give you and those around him an inside view into one of the greatest passions of his life.

Similarly, such fans of the beautiful game might enjoy having their favourite football-related fantasy permanently stored for them to keep. The You're a Legend personalised football commentary gift enables the man of your choice to have his own personal dreams of greatness retold by a professional commentator. It'll be just like the real thing, but without the yellow cards and grass burns. And there's certainly no danger of him being sent off, unless it's all part of the story.

However, if the object of your gift-giving intentions is a bit of a traveller, in addition to feeding back some of the earlier hints and tips on gift giving in Japan and China; why not show him you care with a personalised travel journal? Bound in luxurious leather, this journal will do far more than store important documents.

A personalised travel journal will allow that special man in your life, to put his experiences into his own words. Irrespective of whether the journey is only two weeks away in the Mediterranean sun, or a three-month exploration around Asia, it will allow him to put down all of his experiences, right down to the most intricate of details. Mountain treks or even magical experiences within moonlit retreats can all be stored for recollection at a later date. And if you're lucky, there might be one or two photographs to help give these stories a little bit more colour.
