In the vast sea of potential gifts you could get husband or boyfriend, it can sometimes be tricky to make the right choice. We all know men have their weird hobbies, like gaming, golfing or collecting baseball cards, but you can’t get him the same present over and over again. Sometimes you have to mix it up a bit to show you care. We have come up with a list of fun and original ideas with which you can surprise the man in your life.
Keep it classy and simple
There is nothing better or classier than a good old-fashioned watch. There are times when keeping it simple and classic is the best choice. Especially if your man just got a new job or a promotion, a nice watch might be all ne needs to round up his office look. There are many kinds of watches, from sports watches, that are perfect if your husband or boyfriend works and outdoor job, or when he wants to hit the gym; to diver watches which are incredibly versatile, to fancy dress watches that pair well with white tie events.
A gun massager for the active type
Vibrating massagers or terra guns will be the best gift for an athlete or gym rat. If your significant other enjoys hitting the gym often and leads a healthy and active lifestyle, he surely needs something to help his muscles recover faster. Terra guns are great for targeting those hard-to-reach muscles, and they help speed up recovery from injuries or sprains. Hell, you can even use it after a long day of sitting, it does wonders with neck and back pains, and that makes the a great investment.
A cool set of shades
Sunglasses will always be an effortlessly cool accessory, and they frame the face perfectly, all while protecting your eyes. Most men would appreciate sunglasses as a gift, especially if they are a bit more on the luxury brand side. If you want to make the gift a surprise, then stick to the frames you know will fir him like a glove, or choose timeless classics, like a pair of Ray-Bans. But our advice would be to have him try them on beforehand, because you don’t want to spend money on a pair that doesn’t fit.
Accessories for his four-wheeled soulmate
Some men love their rides more than they like their kids, and hey – we don’t judge. If you know someone who has a camera roll full of car pics and loves to talk about the latest updates he has installed, then maybe you should think in that direction when deciding on a gift. We recommend that you play it safe, especially if you don’t know anything about cars, and get him something simple, like a deerskin car towel, a potent and versatile water spot remover, or new air fresheners. Whatever it may be, we just know he will appreciate it.
A practical beard grooming kit
Having a well-groomed beard is all the rage these days. Almost every man who wants to maintain some inches on his face is expected to keep them neat and tidy. Gone are the days of homeless-chic, and looking shabby is no longer cute. So if your man has a beard or moustache, getting him a nice beard kit would be a good idea. A good set has a beard wash, shaving gel or foam, and beard oil, as well as a hand-crafted comb. And the best thing would be to get him a travel sized one, so he won’t have to deal with an itchy beard while he’s on the go.
Board games – a gift that keeps giving
Cards Against Humanity is a party game that is equal parts hilarious and crass—think of it like the adult version of Apples to Apples. While it’s probably not the most appropriate gift for your grandpa, your guy friends and cooler family members will love it, especially when they’re doubled over from laughing while playing with their friends. Also, boardgames in general are a cool and thoughtful present, especially themed ones – like Mario bros monopoly, or Harry Potter chess set. Not only do they last long, but board games are a gift that just keeps giving.
Trinkets for the outdoor enthusiasts
If the man in your life enjoys the outdoors, why not gift him something that he will actually use? Pocket knives are always a great present, and every hiker or camper needs one. Also, when night falls, one can’t get by without a light, so flashlights, lanterns and headlamps are a great addition to a nature-lover’s collection. Likewise, a good sturdy backpack is essential for safely carrying the inventory. Whistles, water bottles or bladders, binoculars, blankets, gloves and hand warmers, wool socks, and the list just goes on. Go to any hiking equipment store, and they will clue you in on what essential pieces of hiking equipment are, and they can advise you on what would be the best thing to get him.
Men are fascinating creatures, but sometimes that can make it difficult for us to figure out what would the best gift be for them. If you are desperate for new ideas, since there is only so many wallets and colognes you can buy, take a look at some of the ideas we have come up with. Trinkets like car accessories, board games, hiking equipment and even a beard kit are all wonderful gifts that will surely put a smile on your boyfriend’s, husband’s or family member’s face.
