When approaching Christmas, we men are often in a flap about buying the right presents for the women in our lives. And in doing so, it can be easy to forget about the men. As much as you would like to think that you’ve got your buddies gifts under wraps (pun intended), You might also still need an idea or two to kick start your shopping.
Get started by figuring out the right thing to be looking for. Think about who you’re buying for - is it a friend, brother, son, father? And think about what it is they want, not need. They can go and replace those holey socks at any point, but being able to travel in a hot air balloon isn’t something that rolls around the corner every other day. People, in general, don’t buy themselves too many frivolous things as there are always bills and boring things that get in the way, so take this chance to be frivolous for them. If you’re still out of ideas, then look online. Sites like giftbeta.com have masses of ideas perfect for every occasion - and there will be a few options for you to explore. But for now, think about these following options;
As with the hot air balloon ride, you might want to purchase an experience for your giftee. If could be tickets to a game, a meal out, a sushi making evening, a day at the races and so many more ideas. You can think about what they’d love and find great bargains on sites like lastminute.com. You can book them for you and him, or for him and his other half, either way, that time will be spent making great memories, and that’s not something you can buy.
You might know the perfect gift to give - like golf tees, a tie clip, or an iPad stand, but those gifts, where ideal, aren’t necessarily unique. Christmas can be a great time to really personalise what you’re giving to someone, it’s a time of giving and love, and you can really show that love through a gift that is tailored for them. A lot of gifts you can buy can be customized, like an initialled wallet, or a framed image of the soundwaves to their favourite song.
If what you want to buy for someone is out of your budget, then team up with someone. If you’re buying for your brother, then perhaps another sibling will go halves. Split the cost for a friend amongst your group of friends. This will enable you to get that bigger or more expensive present. Where money isn’t the point of Christmas, and no one really cares how much you spend, sometimes you need to spend the extra to get the gift you really want to give.
