Shopping for the special men in your life can be a challenge, especially if they're not great at dropping hints on what they want. Whether you're shopping for your dad, husband, grandpa, brother, or boyfriend, we've put together some top tips to help you select the perfect gifts for him.
Scope Out His Interests
For difficult-to-shop-for men, look for items that fit in with his current hobbies and interests. If he enjoys cooking, look for a smart addition to the kitchen such as cookware, utensils, or storage options. For a movie buff, a framed poster of his favorite flick, a cozy recliner chair for binge watching, or a gift basket full of snacks can be a showstopper. Shop team gear for your sports fan, or look for unique and fun gadgets such as a telescope or record player for tech lovers. If his devotion to a casual hobby or activity has ramped up recently, consider getting him an upgrade on his current supplies or equipment. Whether he's into fitness, crafting, gaming, or handiwork, swap out starter pieces for more comprehensive options, or get him a nice storage box, case, or cabinet to keep his necessities protected and organized.
Rise to the Occasion
Make sure the tone of your gift matches the occasion you're buying for – and, of course, the recipient's personality. Don't be afraid to mix and match for big celebrations like a birthday or Christmas and include a variety of practical, fun, and funny gifts. Consider a thoughtful, sentimental gift to celebrate an anniversary, Valentine's Day, or Father's Day, while a more refined gift such as watch storage, quality barware, or a monogrammed piece is appropriate for retirement.
