All men tend to neglect their essentials or keep on to some worn out things that should have been thrown out years ago. No matter the occasion, the perfect gift for any man needs to be practical. If you’ve planned on purchasing something like an ornament that’s just pretty, you should know that it’s just going to sit there and gather dust for eternity. So, whether you want to replace something old or get something new that’s actually going to be used, check out this list, and you’ll find yourself a perfect present, for sure.
A man changes his wallet in about ten years – it’s like they all have this unwritten rule amongst them to keep to one wallet until it transforms into something that’s not even recognizable as a useful object. If your man’s wallet has achieved this stage, you shouldn’t look any further. And my sincere advice is not to be cheap about it, because it needs to last for the next dozen years or so.
Similar to the fact that women can never have too many shoes or bags, men can never have too many watches. A watch is so much more to a man than just something that shows time – it’s a status symbol. No matter if that person you’re getting a watch for is a collector or not, be completely sure they’re going to love it, wear it, and appreciate it as a gift.
All men can be simply divided into two groups – suit enthusiasts and those who hate them. But, there will come a time, no doubt, when every single man will need to suit up, right? When that day comes, he’ll be very grateful for your gift, believe me. You can choose between a tie and a bowtie – whatever you think it’ll go more with his style.
If you’re looking for a gift for someone who’s into gaming, you should look no further. The only thing left is to pick out a type of a game – Sony, Xbox, PC or board games. I’m sure this will be a very easy decision for you – all games enthusiasts are very passionate about their favorite gaming area, so you just need to pay a bit more attention the next time he talks about which game he would love to have next.
5. Messenger bag
This can be a tricky subject, but not if you play your cards right. Every modern man needs a bag, but they somehow still find it girly or whatever. This is why you should go with something simple and practical – like a messenger bag. There’s enough room to fit everything – notebook, smartphone, gym equipment – and it goes with any kind of an outfit – casual, office or classy. Don’t experiment with colorful details, go with something in one neutral color, and you’ll be doing him a nice favor.
6. Sports Collectibles
If you’re dealing with a sports enthusiast, you won’t find a better gift than a collectible. But, there’s a tricky part here, too – all good collectibles tend to be a bit expensive. For a gift like this, you need to be prepared a couple of months earlier so that you can save up a bit. On the other hand, it won’t be difficult to find them – just visit an online or an actual store that’s trading sports collectables and look for an item regarding that particular sport your man prefers.
We all know how much boys love their toys, right? A new smartphone, a pair of new consoles, an e-reader or an external battery pack – you can’t really go wrong here. Even if you’re not quite following the latest tech news, you’ll still be able to easily find a type of gadget suitable for your guy, just ask around a bit. In the end, you can eliminate the element of surprise, be straightforward about your intentions and ask him. This way, you’ll get him exactly what he wants without wasting any money or time (if you need to go back to the store and replace something).
I believe this list covered some basic types of men, and what kind of gifts would be the most suitable for them. Take your time and consider all of them – maybe you’d like to get them out of the comfort zone and encourage them to try something new, simply by picking out a thing that’s not on their must-have list.
