Men's Gift Ideas - It's What He Wants That Counts

Sep 11, 2008
Buying gifts for men has been a challenge for most women. Starting with the planning up to choosing the right one to give him. But whether you like it or not, especially when holidays or special occasions like your anniversary are nearly approaching, shopping for a gift for him is a must. Whether you have a husband who seem to have everything he wanted, from wardrobe, gadget to luxurious car, choosing the right one for him - especially something he really likes - is a challenging task.

Because there is no such thing as the "perfect gift" that could please every man, there are some ideas that will make you the best gift giver ever and, help you pick the right present for him that he will definitely adore.

Consider items that are practical - useful and functional. What makes a highly appreciated present is its function and usage that can be applied in a regular basis. Generally, most men love tangible presents compared with women that are completely impressed by roses and sweet nothings. Men want something they can hold, use and touch. Think of cufflinks, desk set accessories, watches or other men stuff. You can come up with this idea by simply knowing his usual activities, hobbies or past time. And you may get inspiration from his career. There are lots of elegant and useful items that can make great business gifts for an executive or high profiled gentleman.

While you are talking about hints that can make a right gift for him, he can be less analytic and may come right out and confess what he wants. Don't make a mistake of sticking to your way to surprise him with a doubtful one. Rather, simply buy him what he wants to have. The trick here is to pay attention to his wants, and not your wants.

The same is through with his interest in lifestyle, hobbies, sports and activities. It is important to hit even just one of these targets that can make him interested. How about buying sports related stuff? But it doesn't necessarily mean that you have to buy real sports stuff, rather you may opt to buy sport themed items like MBL or NFL Coach Watches, Golf-themed or NCAA cufflinks and pub signs. Or if your man loves to grill, why not give him a personalized barbecue kit?

Don't be deceived by generic items or stuff that are commonly linked with most men. Remember, you want to make it extra special and you want to come up with a unique present for him. A special present can be made from personalized items. This will enable you to turn a simple gift into a special personalized gift that is made especially for him. Personalized items may include his engraved or embroidered initials. Or if not, you may replace your personal message for him. Personalized gift items are a sure hit during engagements, anniversaries and weddings. Earlier ideas may apply when choosing personalized items. Such items are personalized mugs, money clips, weekender bags, flasks and the like.
