“Robot dog, night vision goggles, bug vacuum, GPS watch, speakers that look like rocks. I love my wife but she sucks at giving gifts. I’m sorry for the pay channel language- oh yoghurt maker, I can’t NOT think of things I want”. These wise words from Phil Dunphy (see video clip here) remind people that buying gifts for men can be a hassle and a challenge at times. In order to get them the perfect gift, you have to think like a man. Here’s a lists of things to get for that Phil Dunphy like husband, boyfriend or young man in your life.
Men are like birds, they love shiny things. Men also like accessories, so why not get him something that he can wear to work and when he goes out, something that’s suitable for all occasions, like a watch, bracelet or necklace. Men aren’t too fussed about the brand but rather its aesthetics and whether it fits properly or not. Why not get him a Links of London Dial Watch, a mens 20-20 leather bracelet, or a Silver Stainless Steel Men’s Necklace with Black Camo Pendant.
Fitness, exercise, and having muscle is now a popular trend in today’s society. Getting that summer body requires regular jogs and gym sessions at least 3 times a week. Having a full gym at home or a few items that will help him exercise will not only save some money, but will keep him happy and motivated in reaching his personal goal. But whatever you do, don’t buy him a scale as a gift, it sends the wrong message and puts unnecessary focus on his weight. Try getting him something like running shoes, a dumbbell set, a bench press set or even workout attire.
Men love sports whether it be AFL, NFL or lawn bowls. Men love to get immersed in sport. Getting him something as simple as a team jersey or tickets for a game can say a lot, but if you really want to go out of your way for him get him something signed. Men love to have a personal message from their sports heroes and they’ll see you as a hero too for getting it.
Some men don’t like to spend too much on what they wear. Here’s where you come in handy. Buy them something they want or need, that is made with good, quality materials that are durable. This way you can finally get him to wear the jacket you’ve been nagging him to buy for months. Leather Jackets by Diesel are always a winning option, as are a pair of black Levis 501 Original Fit Jeans.
Wining and Dining
Men love a good meal; sometimes taking them out to a nice restaurant where they can order a huge steak and beer and not have to worry about the bill is just what they may want.
When you’ve run out of ideas, alcohol is a good choice. Not a cheap beer from the local bottle shop though, preferably a nice spirit that you know they’d only buy on a very special occasion. This will that show you care for them, and that you see their birthday as a special occasion to celebrate. It also shows that you listen. If he still prefers beer to spirits, a handpicked selection of specialty beers from around the world can also be a great option.
