The men in our lives are always some of the hardest to shop for when it comes to Christmas gifts. Either they go out and buy whatever they want for themselves throughout the year, or they already have everything that they need and struggle to give you suggestions about what else they could possibly want. When thinking up Christmas gifts for guys, you need to take cues from their hobbies and interests and sometimes think a little bit outside the box for the perfect Christmas gift. This list might help drum up some ideas about what the guys in your life would love for Christmas this year.
Sports Jerseys or Tickets
If you know a guy that loves sports, chances are they can never have enough stuff from his favorite team. Some suggestions would be his favorite player’s jersey, tickets to an upcoming home game, or merchandise from his favorite team such as beer mugs, baseball hats, coasters, cell phone covers and things of that nature. Bonus points for finding wrapping paper in his team’s colors.
Computer and Electronics Accessories
Every guy surely has at least one computer or electronic device that they can’t live without. Give him something to use with his electronics this Christmas that will increase their usability or prolong their use. New headphones, computer bags and cases, tablet cases, iPhone covers, remotes and chargers are just some ideas for the tech guy in your life.
If you know the guy well enough, clothes and accessories can make excellent Christmas gifts for guys. Guys tend to only shop when it’s a necessity, so surprise him with a new sweater, jacket, sunglasses, watch, belt, hat or other clothing item that you think he would really love. Always get a gift receipt, just in case he isn’t crazy about the exact color or style you select.
Perhaps the best gift for a guy that has it all is no gift at all – no physical gift, that is. Experience gifts are the new go-to item for people that are tough to shop for. You can select any number of experiences to gift, such as learning how to fly a plane to cooking classes. These gifts range in price from extremely affordable options to luxury packages, so there is truly an experience gift perfect for anyone.
Tools and Equipment
The handymen in our lives need tools and equipment to keep their projects going, so what better gift for a handyman than products for home repair and maintenance, camping and other manly pursuits. Find out what tools your handyman needs to avoid buying him a duplicate and make the present extra special by also getting him a special carrying case or some other accessory that would complement the tool or equipment.
Toys for Boys
No matter the age, all men love a great toy. With the high-tech options on the market today, it’s easier than ever to pick up a fun and useful toy. If you’re buying a gift for an outdoorsmen, pick up a handheld GPS. If you have a weather tracker in your life, get an indoor digital weather station. Just make sure to give him batteries along with the gift so that he can open and use it right away.
