Buying a gift for a man is by far one of the hardest tasks women in a relationship ever have to embark upon. It’s almost as hard as pulling teeth, and the conversation generally goes like this:
Woman: What should I buy you?
Man: Doesn’t Matter.
Then the saga continues. Suddenly, we are forced to become mind readers to determine what exactly we can buy for the men in our lives. Despite how challenging it can be, buying for men doesn’t have to be super complex. The key to unlocking the mysticism behind buying the perfect gift is knowing what exactly to buy a man who already has everything he needs.
Here are 6 pretty fail-safe options:
1. Gift Card To His Favorite Restaurant
Everybody loves food and as the old proverb says: the easiest way to get to a man’s heart is through his stomach. A gift card may seem like a minor gift, but it could warm a man’s heart to know you took the time to give him a gift card to a place he frequents.
Does the beau in your life have lots of facial hair that needs grooming? Are you tired of watching him always use the same shaver from 1995? Buy him a new one. While no two shavers are created equal, it’s important to know what functions your man needs from his shaver and also which types of shavers work best on his skin. The best part about shavers is you can buy them practically anywhere depending on the quality you’re looking for.
3. DVD Series
Does your man have a favorite tv show? Is there a movie he could literally watch every single day if he could? If you answered yes, consider buying him a DVD set. To top off your gift, designate a special day or time for both of you to sit back, relax and indulge in great television together.
4. Power Tools
Whether he is a “man’s man” or not, every man should have power tools readily available for him to pick up at any given moment. One of the most popular power tools for most DIYers and professionals are impact drivers. How do I know that? Google’s product reviews and ProToolZone educate me on what tools I should buy based on reviews because, to be honest, all tools look practically the same in my book.
Does the man in your life love technology more than anyone else in your home? Have you ever caught him eyeing the latest gadget at Best Buy? Then you can’t go wrong with buying him electronics. From cell phones to smart watches to even tablets, there are a plethora of options to choose from depending on what your man wants from his latest technological gadget.
6. Creative Gifts
If all else fails and you are still unable to figure out what exactly you can buy your man, get creative. Make your man a gift or recreate one his favorite date night activities. While everyone knows that women appreciate creative gifts, you’ll be surprised to know that your man probably does too.
When all’s said and done, if your man said what you buy him “doesn’t matter,” he’s probably telling the truth. While you’re spending night and day wondering what exactly to get him, most men would be completely fine if you got them absolutely nothing. At the end of the day, you know your man better than anyone else, so on that special day, do what you can to brighten his day, and you may be surprised to know that it really is the thought that counts.
