When it comes to gifts for the impossible man, it may not be about what you think he wants. Men just seem to have a different take on what they want. So if you want to know what he really wants, here are some of the more common gifts for men:
Adventure. Are you really into this? Most men do, but it’s a bit tricky for the gift giver since it depends on how old the recipient is and how much life experiences the man has had. You can find some really unique items in gift stores that will provide the adventurer with enough gear to get him through the adventure.
This is also a great gift for women who don’t quite understand how much he appreciates that type of gift. I’ve heard of a lot of men who have gone out and bought the equivalent of a small cottage on their own. It’s rare that you hear about men who don’t enjoy the idea of getting an entire cottage. Just take a look at a mountain cabin in the woods. It’ll take a lifetime to realize how many times you’ve wished you could afford to have one of those.
The idea of adventure gifts come in all shapes and sizes. There are rucksacks, tents, sleeping bags, all sorts of backpacks and gels. These all take up a lot of space, but for some men, it’s not the actual size or the cost of the item that is important. It’s the ability to feel like a big man in a small package that keeps them going.
The bigger your dream vacation gets, the more obvious it becomes that it would be great if you could go on one. Get him the money for that romantic getaway that he’s been dreaming about. Even if he doesn’t believe that you really have the time or the means to go to such exotic locations, it’s not like you’re getting a cruise off his bank account.
The size of this may be in question, but it’s still a nice little gift for the man who believes that the world is full of wonders to be discovered. Getting him something that he can use as a reference point or a tool to get to know what you’re doing once you get there is a great way to go. Or take advantage of the great writing experience that these types of backpacks can provide.
Is your man a golf fan? Why not get him some golfer’s clubs or a golf umbrella. If your relationship is based on a shared love of the green, then golfing accessories are definitely for you.
This man caves you saw in that old advertisement is almost always filled with a large assortment of games to choose from. If you can get him a home game, even better. I bet he’d have a ball with you when you’re playing those video games with him. Go ahead and take this category out for a spin.
For kids, you can’t go wrong with board games and summer games. Show him how much fun you two can have by giving him a fun game that you know he will want to play over again. Try reading him a story that involves a sort of a cross between an adventure and time travel.
What about gifts for the man cave? If your man isn’t into fancy electronics, you can’t go wrong with a small gaming console. But he will definitely appreciate being able to keep track of all the games that he has available to him.
But when it comes to giving men man cave gifts, you don’t necessarily have to buy him something that he will actually use. Go for the ones that are in style. The gaming consoles are a step above, but you can give him a radio that has a battery backup or a cup that can hold a quart of beer. Or just get him a shirt with his favorite team’s logo on it.
When you think about it, the greatest man cave gifts are probably those that involve your own personal style. And those that suit your man’s personality and style.
