It always feels like there is a special gift-giving occasion just around the corner. Whether that’s his birthday or an anniversary, sometimes it can feel impossible getting him something that he doesn’t have that he is sure to like.
1. Invest in a Gift that Will Make Him Look and Feel Good
Whether the guy you’re shopping for is a fashion guru or not, everyone appreciates a gift that will help make them look and feel great. A gift of a new tie or a new watch is practical and versatile, allowing him to decide when and how to wear them. Every time he wears his new accessory, he will think of you and be grateful, which is always an added bonus.
2. Get Him Something Special and Sentimental
Every couple has an inside joke or at least a story about how they first met. Consider getting him something that makes him think of that, or that has a personal touch. For instance, if you two first met while you were out bowling, then maybe get a bowling pin keychain or a coupon to go to the bowling alley together again. This kind of gift shows not only how far you two have come together, but that you also never forget the roots of your relationship.
3. Get Him the Unexpected
This can mean something different to every person who reads this. To some, this can mean that it’s about time to get him a hilarious gag gift that no one would expect you to buy for him. To someone else, this can mean that if you always go the sentimental route with gifts, you can get him something that he would like or need from a store without much thought of sentiment, but rather thought of the present and of the future instead.
4. Make Old Things New
Although this type of gift might not be a physical thing that you can get at a store, it could be the best option on this list for you. If he has an old car that he wants to fix up, then maybe setup a meeting with a mechanic so that he can take it and fix it. Fix holes in his clothes or detail his motorcycle, putting thought and effort into the thing that you are renewing with his happiness in mind. Of course, if his most prized possession is beyond saving, you can always think about buying him a replacement item, saying instead, “Out with the old and in with the new.”
5. Try the Intangible
If you really are shopping for the guy who has everything, then give him tickets to a concert that he is sure to never forget. If he isn’t into concerts, then look into other local events that you can get him tickets for that will make you his new favorite friend.
These five tips should help guide you towards the absolutely perfect gift for the most special man in your life. Between these five keys to success and your judgement, you are bound to get him something new and original that he will love.
