Birthdays are always an amazing opportunity to put a smile on your loved one’s face; it doesn’t really matter if we are talking about a partner, spouse, best friend, sister, cousin, your parents or someone else – truth is, a good and thoughtful gift will mean so much to the person you are giving it to.
And it’s not just about the present per se. It’s about the thought behind it.
While some may argue that gifts are superficial, a way to buy into someone’s affection, we’ll argue completely the opposite – a gift is a heart’s desire to express your thoughtfulness, care, devotion and love to the person you adore by buying them something they have always wanted and will most certainly enjoy. And guess what? Each time they set their eyes on that gift, they’ll remember you… isn’t that wonderful?
Men and women have different tastes in presents, it’s true. That is why we are short-listing some of our favorite birthday ideas that may make your man happy.
Without much further ado…
Most guys are absolutely crazy about their gadgets! Why? God knows, but the truth is they know how to operate them and it does excite them. Depending on the lifestyle your man is leading, your gift may easily vary from the latest gaming console, a gaming keyboard, that phone he’s been eyeing or the extra memory for his computer. Truth is, guys always obsessively talk about their gadgets, so it won’t be hard to pick it up and run to the store! Note – gadgets are incredibly expensive. He better be worth it.
No, we aren’t suggesting you buy your man a pair of hanging earrings, a golden bracelet or a necklace; we were more thinking about a nice watch or a ring. If you’ve got a corporate guy to buy a present for, he’ll definitely love getting a watch that will fit perfectly on his wrist. Men generally love watches, so make sure you buy something that’s after his taste. If you are buying a gift for a vagabond, a ring or leather bracelets will do the trick. Still, if you are romantically involved and you are not *there* yet, make a joke and be like “it’s for THIS finger, not THAT one”, and laugh it out. He’ll love it!
Leather might be going out and in of latest trends, but the truth is – a quality piece of leather will always find a place in everyone’s closet. Leather gifts are amazing for men with style and class, and we’d always suggest opting for a wallet, leather bag, a belt or even a leather jacket for your wonderful man. These gifts are timeless and are after everyone’s taste. Just don’t go overboard and go crazy with some leather fringe pants or vests… he probably won’t love that gift, well – not unless he is a part-time cowboy or a rodeo clown!
Not that women are any better, but men can get so sloppy and untidy that it can easily make your head spin! This is why getting your man a cleaning service voucher for a month will definitely be a super cool and useful present that will not only help make is home sparkle but will also (hopefully!) instill a sense of duty in him to keep his place clean as much as possible! If he is working a lot and doesn’t have much time to clean his place from top to bottom, this gift is perfect for him!
A holiday voucher is the best thing you can give someone who is working hard and is screaming for a vacation! If your man seems like he’s been struggling for some time now and you’ve noticed he’s getting exhausted, buy him a holiday voucher to a nice destination to help him distress and relax. It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant, really. Even going to a neighboring town or countryside for a few days, or a nearby spa will make all the difference!
