Birthday Gift Guide: Choosing thoughtful gifts for men

Posted by on


Choosing gifts for men can be a tiresome task. Whether you’re a man or not, selecting thoughtful, fun and exciting gifts for brothers, husbands, dads and friends can be difficult no matter how well you know them. Knowing for sure what they will like is a tricky business, but with our helpful hints and tips, you’ll soon be confident to adorn all the men in your life with gifts that are sure to make them smile.

Something to Wear

It’s easy to believe that when it comes to gifts for men, you can’t go far wrong with something to wear. A nice new shirt or a pair of jeans should always go down a treat. The only stumbling block is whether or not you’re confident you know their style. If you’re not, how about a gift card for a clothing retailer so they can go and choose their next big night out ensemble for themselves.

If you’re looking for gifts for men with a little extra sparkle, there’s nothing to say that men don’t like jewellery just as much as anyone else. A thoughtfully chosen pair of cufflinks or even a fancy watch are the gifts for men that will go miles towards showing how much you care, particularly if there are any more special occasions coming up for them to show off their new present. You could even opt for a Goldsmiths Gift Card and go with them to choose their new stylish amd sentimental pieces of jewellery for themselves.

When there’s a holiday coming up, a new pair of sunglasses are fantastic gifts for men. There’s nothing like hitting the beach, feeling cool and smart in your new shades. The only problem is, without trying them on, it’s near impossible to figure out which shapes and styles will suit them best. But worry not, a gift card for Sunglass Hut will see them through, allowing them to choose the new shades that will fit their face perfectly.

Alternatively, if winter sun isn’t on the agenda, a dressing gown should be on your list of gifts for men. Who doesn’t enjoy snuggling up in a new fluffy dressing gown as the nights draw in? You could even go that one step further and personalise it with his initials.

Something to Keep Boredom at Bay

One of the best gifts for men that’ll keep them from getting bored is books. Whatever they’re into, there’s a book about it. Or if they’ve already got all the books to go alongside their hobby, you could always nudge them towards fiction for a change. And if you’re not sure, National Book Tokens allow the men you care about to choose their next read.

Everyone has a fun side. And if the men you know err on the edge of competitiveness, even better. Gaming gifts for men come in all shapes and sizes. You could opt for a digital game for their PlayStation or XBox, or even a vintage video game to take them back to their childhood. Otherwise, go for a good old fashioned board or card game to keep them entertained when their friends come round. Whichever you opt for, these gifts for men are sure to bring hours of fun. When it comes to gifts for men you know, you could also nurture their hobbies and interests with an annual subscription. There’s usually a magazine or monthly gift subscription for any hobby or interest out there, and feeding their interest will bring an added level of excitement to their present.

Something to Experience

If money is a little tight at the moment, one of the most thoughtful gifts for men is to cook him his favourite meal. This doesn’t have to be a romantic occasion if you’re struggling for ideas for your brother, dad or friend. Simply spending the time together over a home cooked meal will be a really heartfelt present. If you’re in a position to splash some cash, why not take them out for a meal instead? We’ve got loads of restaurant gift cards to choose from, so you’re sure to be able to find a cuisine that’s right up his street. If you’re trying to keep things romantic, they do say that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach so this could be one of the best gifts for men you buy!

Everyone’s hobbies and interests are different, so why not get him an experience day voucher from Buyagift. With these gifts for men, they can choose whether they fancy tearing up the track in a supercar or laying back and relaxing at a spa. If you play your cards right, you might even get an invite to join them. If you’re looking for gifts for men for that special man in your life, there’s nothing much more romantic than a mini break. Whether it’s on the sun splashed beaches of Spain or simply a weekend in the Lake District, spending some quality time together is always a perfect present. Choose an Inspire TravelCard gift card so you can decide on your destination together and get the excitement going for holiday planning.

Whatever it is that the men in your life love, when you’re searching for meaningful and exciting gifts for men, often the best way to go is to give them an idea and let them choose their gifts themselves.
