It is always easy for men to get gifts for women but it is definitely hard work for us women to get him presents that will hit his sweet spot, whether it is his birthday, anniversary, Valentine’s Day or Christmas. If you have trouble deciding between a coffee mug and a wallet, then you should to read on.
It could be leather belt, leather wallet, leather bookmark, leather keychain or leather anything! Unless he is allergic to hide or has strong reasons not to it (religion, for example), a man always appreciates leather, primarily because it lasts. Guys are big on practicality, and if you give him a leather wallet to replace his old one, that means he does not have to shop for another one for at least 10 years! Hehe…
Mobile Phone Case
As long as a mobile phone is in a man’s pocket, there is always the risk of it falling out unbeknownst to him. So, pay a visit to the mall to find a case that fits. Make sure you know the exact brand and model of his phone first. Get an original case from the phone manufacturer itself, if possible.
Gadgets and Gizmos (any kind)
Meaning a thumb drive, USB-powered fan or massager, funky five-button mouse or Bluetooth hands free kit. Then again, do note that a gadget is only as useful as its owner makes it. For example, a writer would most certainly prefer a functional keyboard instead, but an addicted computer gamer would appreciate an ergonomic keyboard and mouse. You may also consider a gadget for his car, from battery voltage meters to altimeters to car hands free kits, gizmos for wheels are aplenty.
Wristwatch, desk clock, wall clock, bathroom clock or anything in between are great material gifts that last long too.
Pens, pencils or other such cool stuff he can use at work are wonderful gifts for men. By getting him a Parker to replace his Kilometrico, you are telling him that what he does is important, not just to him, but to you as well.
It means vouchers sign by you that can’t be bought anywhere! You can create vouchers which are redeemable by him for things like massage, backrubs, footrubs and other “personal / intimate services” you think he would enjoy. However, do not give away vouchers for things that you have difficulty doing and do not make promises you cannot or will not keep.
Do him a nice turn by getting him a new laptop case that is lightweight and has a) lots of pockets; b) a hard case to protect the contents; c) security features. Make sure you take note of the type of notebook (widescreen, mini, regular) he has so that you don’t get something that is too big or too small.
The electric shaver is one of those things that a man would like to have but will never buy for himself. Guys like it because of the convenience it offers. It is also important to get one that comes with rechargeable batteries.
Most men style guides are pretty rotten, unless he is a fashion designer or maybe gay. Men have always been hopeless at matching the clothes they wear to occasion. So, match stuff for him and he will love you for that! Also, remember to always buy a tie to go with a tie pin!
Smelling good stuffs
After shave, perfume and body spray are all great gifts and are welcome every time. This also a way to keep him smelling good all year round. I bought a Calvin Klein Eternity Summer for my guy for when I came back from my Taiwan trip and it certainly puts a smile on his face.
Guys who love their cars are so easy to please when it comes to presents. To car enthusiasts, great gifts equals anything that they can use on their car – polish, glimmer, weird lights, dashboard displays, bumper stickers, car seat embellishments, gear shift knobs, steering wheel covers and the list goes on and on.
Shopping vouchers are a pretty shameless way of admitting that you have no clue what to get him… LOL! However, before you buy a shopping voucher, you would do well to at least put some thought into what and where he would like to shop.
