Romantic Gift Ideas For Him
Who said it is difficult to buy a gift for a woman? Men are no exceptions. There seems to be limited choices and you cannot really give him a tie for every occasion. Stop struggling and look at these great ideas for gifts for your man - he will love them and so will you.
Things that go Beep
Listen to two men talking and the topic always comes to the latest gadgets in the market. They are not all geeks, but when it comes to things that whirr, beep or have manuals the size of War and Peace, men's knees turn to jelly. However, if your sweetheart has everything - an iPod, a killer music system, and home theater to boot...don't kid yourself. It is never enough!
Do a little research: check the malls and websites, talk to a few male pals, even bring up the subject (innocently) with your sweetie. Once you know what the latest hottest new gadget is, all you have to do is wrap it up and think of the ways in which he will express his joy and gratitude!
If your guy is a corporate high-flier with dreams of scaling the heights, a personalized gift will feed his ego and take you a few notches higher in his eyes. You can personalize most things by getting his initials monogrammed on them - from wallets to golf clubs, briefcases to a computer mouse. There are other ways to personalize your gifts; think of all the things he likes to do and make him a gift basket. A good suggestion for the man who loves movies could be a DVD of the latest action packed thriller (one that includes special features), a pair of soft slippers and pajamas to slip into while watching the DVD, packets of microwaveable popcorn, a coupon for pizza, and a handwritten note offering to help him keep warm on the sofa.
Leather & Sports
Wallets and briefcases are not the only leather items a man can possess. For the biker, get a pair of leather gloves for those fast bike rides on country trails, a leather jacket for the rock concert fan, or a shoeshine kit for the impeccable gentleman. If your hero leaves a mess on the dresser, what better gift than a leather catchall basket (or two)?
It is always easy to buy gifts for sports fans. A golf enthusiast would love another club or driver, a good luck charm to help him on the green, a pair of monogrammed gloves or a pocket watch to remind him to wrap up the game. For the hiker, biker or trekking fan, a multipurpose backpack with pockets for everything from his cell phone and iPod, or water bottle and energy bars (and if it turns into a tent for camping, all the better!). Whatever his hobby, cater to it: sudoku books, poker sets, dartboards, underwater-gadgets or board games for rainy days.
For those little I-love-you-reminder-gifts that you might want to hand out on the spur of the moment, stock up on good books, gourmet chocolates, great wines and little things to help him relax (like a yo-yo, a massage neck pillow, or a spa certificate).
