Working out what to buy the person in your life who has everything is difficult and it’s often men who pose the biggest challenge. From husbands to dads, uncles to brothers, getting that perfect present can be tricky.
Whether you’re looking for a birthday treat or a Christmas extravagance, here’s a look at some of the most unusual and quirky gifts out there that are bound to impress the man in your life.
When he really does have everything he needs then give him a warm glow instead through the joy of giving to someone else.
Charities offer tons of great ways of giving while receiving through their stores and websites. You could buy, on his behalf, a shelter for a refugee facing a cold winter or a family in a developing country access to safe water.The choices are endless so be creative and choose a gift that’s truly unique but that really makes a difference.
If he needs something more to unwrap, then pair your gift with some ethically sourced chocolate or tea.
Live The Experience
For your golf enthusiast how about a day under the tuition of a top coach or for the foodie in your life, an afternoon pairing his favourite wines with Italian food. There are plenty of ways you can create an amazing experience that will show that you know him better than he knows himself.
Set up your own arrangements for that extra personal touch or buy in a package from an online company. Either way, it’s a gift that will stay with him for a long time to come. You could even combine and create a couple’s package, such as a weekend getaway to his favourite city for a shared Christmas treat.
When you know he’d rather choose something himself, there’s always the reliable option to buy gift cards. Far from being impersonal, a gift card for a store he really loves and would happily spend a fortune in is the perfect way to show him you know what he’s into.
Make It Personal
A much-loved grandad or uncle will enjoy getting something just for them from grandchildren, nieces or nephews. A keyring with their family member’s names on or a monogrammed hip flask and scarf, adding a personal touch shows how valued your loved one is.
There’s a huge range of products out there and choices of materials include wood, glass, metal and of course clothing.
Food And Drink
Treat him to his favourite tipple and pair it with a box of treats for a unique and tasty present.
For the cheese buff, add crackers, pickles and a beautiful bottle or two of his favourite red wine or port. Your sweet-toothed boyfriend might prefer a chocolate basket selection, paired with a dessert wine for a post-dinner treat.
Hopefully the gift receiver will be impressed with something from these ideas!
