If you thought buying gifts for your wife or girlfriend was difficult, wait until you have to choose something for the men in your life. If you find yourself pacing the shelves of your local stores utterly clueless about what he might like, before you default to getting him a gift card, here are some great and practical gift ideas that he’s sure to love.
A Subscription to Something
What’s better than the gift that keeps on giving? Gifting the man in your life a subscription to something for a year or even just a few months can be a really great gift. Things like a beer or whiskey subscription service, or even a digital subscription to a paywalled news site or a video streaming service are all out of the box gifts that he’s sure to love. There are subscription services for nearly anything these days, so hit a search engine and find something perfect for him.
Coffee In the Morning
There are unlimited choices for the coffee lover available to you as gifts and they come in such a wide price range that they’ll fit almost any budget. Whether he’s the no frills coffee drinker that just makes a k-cup coffee in the morning, or he resembles an alchemist brewing up his coffee with the precision of an apothecary, you’ll find something he doesn’t have. Some ideas include a travel mug, a Mokka pot, a fancy tamper, a new burr grinder or even a few bags of specialty coffee beans that he’d never buy himself. Bigger ideas might include a bean to cup machine or something gimmickier, like one of the new smart mugs that are emerging onto the market.
Things for the Golf Course
Golf is a hugely popular hobby, and there’s a better than average chance that a golf-related gift will go down a treat. Some expensive golf balls, a new golfing gadget like a range finder, or golfing smartwatch are at the top of most golfers’ wish list. If they own a golf cart, there are some really useful and fun accessories you could snag for the golfer in your life.
Something for the Home Bar
If the man you’re buying for has a home bar or a man cave, then this is the gift idea for you. There are so many great additions to any home bar that any man would be happy to have. These could be as simple as some expensive, classy glassware to something as grand as a foosball table. Framed sports memorabilia from his favorite sports team will also fit right in, as will gadgets like an electric bottle opener or stylish ice bucket.
Men are practical creatures and as such, they respond well to practical gifts. If they can get used out of them all the time, they’re going to love them. Aim to get something that appeals to his interests, hobbies, or things he complains about not having and you’ll be on to a winner in no time.
