Sometimes shopping for men can be difficult. Whether it’s your dad, son or partner, it can be hard to get presents for men. It doesn’t have to be stressful and a chore. Here are some ideas for gifts they will love this year:
Something to do
Give the gift of something to do — like a Lego set. There are so many adult Lego sets to choose from. They can even turn into a collection so you can continue to get them for future birthdays and Christmases. You can get different cars and motorbikes for any car lover in your life or “Star Wars” and “Marvel” sets for the movie fans. You can also find Harry Potter sets and replicas of famous buildings.
Another option is an experience. (Pro tip: I have a list of experience gifts.) These can range in price depending on what you want to do. You could do something adventurous like ziplining, bungee-jumping or a helicopter ride. You can also get experiences for the shows, expensive meals and driving really fast cars. Depending on what the man in your life is interested in, you’re bound to find something to make them happy and give them something to look forward to.
Something for their space
You don’t always have to get expensive and lavish gifts. You could simply create an at-home experience for your other half. You could get in their favorite takeout, put on their favorite film and light some candles. These days you can find a candle for men. You might want something musky and not as floral scented, depending on their preference. You can also start a little date night tradition. A date night jar can give you ideas for what to do during your time together.
I am a proponent of gifting something personalized, which can be a sentimental gift. You can get almost anything personalized these days, so the world is your oyster in that sense. You could get a keyring or a mouse mat with a picture of your children, personalized sports uniforms with their name, socks, pillows, desk calendars, T-shirts, slippers, phone cases and so much more.
These are some ideas to help you get a present for the man in your life this Christmas to make their face light up on Christmas morning.
