It’s time for another gift guide! Today, I’m talking about how to pick out something for the guys in your life. I don’t know about you, but my husband is one of the hardest people to shop for! He can be a bit picky (his words, not mine) and I’ve had my fair share of less-than stellar gifts–One time, I knitted him a camo-colored scarf….it was itchy, too short, and he never wore it! 😂
But I’d like to think my gift-giving game has improved over the years, especially since I started writing down things M. would mention that he liked or wanted, and using his friends to gather intel. 😀
Whether you’re shopping for your significant other, a special guy friend, dad, or brother, the guys in our lives can be difficult people to shop for! When in doubt, always ask the guy-they are the experts, after all! 🙂
Some things I’ve learned that guys prefer to receive as gifts:
Something that they can use versus something that looks pretty sitting on a shelf; think travel bag for their toiletries or a bluetooth speaker for their phone! While us ladies love pretty things that sit on the shelf, guys–not so much. You can gift him with something that is both useful and looks nice on the shelf; a monogrammed watch box or personalized whiskey decanter are sure to be favorites!
A nicer version of something they already own/wouldn’t buy for themselves
Does your beau have a beard? Gift him with a classy shaving set! Does your brother like to lounge around the house in his pjs? A soft pair of flannel would make him feel even more comfortable (these slipper socks look awesome)! My husband drinks a protein shake on the way to work, every morning, and he uses the same travel mug over and over. He would probably really appreciate receiving an insulated travel cup that works for both hot and cold beverages!
Experiences over stuff
And when in doubt, making memories are what count. If the guy in your life doesn’t want things for Christmas, maybe doing things are more up his alley! Treat him to a nice dinner at his favorite place, tickets to see his favorite sports team play, or take him on a tour of a brewery/bourbon distillery (for the southern gents out there!).
