Choosing a gift is a responsible matter. It is important to consider all of the following factors:
⦁ Relationship with a man;
⦁ His age and social status;
⦁ Hobbies, interests;
⦁ Price category and your finances;
⦁ Availability of a gift for a man if this is a highly specialized item;
⦁ Appearance and presentation of the gift.
Sometimes there is no opportunity to take into account all these factors. When buying a birthday present for a colleague, a distant relative, or someone you are new to and just starting to develop relationships, you need to focus on something universal and useful at the same time.
The easiest birthday present is money in a beautiful envelope. However, people do not always have the opportunity to present a large amount of money. It also happens that there is a risk of offending the recipient with such a gift, or his financial situation makes such a gift simply unnecessary. Nevertheless, to this day, money in an envelope remains the most universal of gifts.
If money seems like an “unethical” gift to you, give the certificate to a men’s clothing or shoe store, barbershop, bookstore, electronics store, or even a household goods store. Many stores provide discount cardholders with a personalized birthday discount.
Expensive alcohol is often presented as a gift. It is pleasant to have a swanky type of bottle not only to drink in the evening by the fireplace but also to put it on the table in front of important guests; therefore, alcohol is appreciated even by non-drinking men.
It can also be quite hard to have a healthy relationship with a workaholic, dealing with a workaholic can be quite challenging, especially when it comes to choosing a gift for them. Here are some gift ideas for workaholics.
When buying a present for a man on his birthday, it is necessary to take into account his position in society. You won’t give a beer mug to a businessman, unfamiliar influential people in general, and an athlete or a hipster will not get pleasure from a branded golden pen.
It is necessary to gift a thing corresponding to the status of a man. And, if it’s easy to choose a worthwhile item, then you need to choose a relatively cheap gift wisely. Otherwise, you can accidentally cause a man to feel like he is not appreciated.
Here are some options for inexpensive gifts for men, which they will definitely appreciate:
⦁ A book is a universal and inexpensive gift for any reading man;
⦁ High-quality non-spill thermo-mug (especially relevant for people of active lifestyle even in the cold season);
⦁ A diary;
⦁ A board game;
⦁ Inexpensive computer accessories like a wireless mouse, gaming keyboard;
⦁ A flash drive;
⦁ Bluetooth headphones;
⦁ A ticket to the cinema, theater, concert.
If you want to present a gift not just to a colleague, but a close friend, a relative, or your own husband, you have to do a little bit more work.
Among expensive gifts for men are gifts that are not that expensive, but also functional. A businessman will be happy with something that will show their status. Any man will be happy with electronics or something that has to do with their hobby. Men often disregard fanciful trinkets and feel awkward, accepting them as a gift.
