Why is he SO hard to buy for?
When you are trying to buy for a man in your life, it can be super hard to find something suitable for them. So it can be useful to find something unique that will really surprise him. Most of the time when we buy the men in our lives gifts it is socks, watches, a new shirt, a game, maybe some shoes, or some cologne.
However, none of these things are exciting, and even if they have a hobby or a niche interest, it is easy to run out of ideas sooner or later. This is why unique gifts are worth it, we don’t mean a personalized mug, or socks with their name on them, as much as those would make great small gifts, it’s not quite special day material.
So here we have some ideas for you on a unique gift idea for the hard-to-buy-for man in your life.
You can always head to the store and see what they have to offer, but most of the time, the things stores offer are generic. It is at this point that we want to thank the internet for its diversity. So, it is time to get creative and see what you can come up with that will blow them away.
Subscription boxes are a great place to start, especially if the man has a passion. Do they love watches? You can get watch subscription boxes. Are they a big gamer, or are they into anime? They do subscription boxes for those too. Are they big into cigars? Try out a cigar subscription box. There are more types of subscription boxes than you can imagine, and it works much like old magazine subscriptions or a streaming channel subscription.
It can make for a regular and wonderful gift for them that will bring them excitement and joy over and over again, rather than just being a one-off thing.
Another option is experience packages. If you go online, have a look at ‘experience gifts’, these can be things such as go-karting experiences, zip-lining, bungee jumping, a whiskey or wine tasting afternoon, you can even have experiences in driving supercars on real tracks.
There are plenty of sites that offer these types of gifts, and what is the best part of these gifts is that it is not just a present, but it is also in the present, it’s an experience that gives them the opportunity to make memories. If the man you are buying for absolutely loves cars, what could be a better gift than getting them some time to actually drive a Lamborghini and have photos in it to show all his friends. It becomes more than a gift.
For any passion they have, there is an experience for them.
Personalized gifts are another option. We don’t mean socks and mugs though, that is low-key personalized gift giving.
Did you know you can name a star after someone and they will get a necklace and a certificate? This is personal and more special- certainly more so than a pair of socks. There are also websites where you can input information about the person, and you can create a book about them, it will contain information about their birth year, the time when they grew up, and it will be unique to them.
While normal gifts are great, personalized gifts are better, because they always show that the person really thought about it and really considered the person they are buying for.
Do they have a favorite wild animal? Why not adopt one, there are plenty of conversational sites where you can adopt an animal all the way from turtles, to tigers, to elephants, to penguins, monkeys, and more. They receive a certificate, a photo of the animal you adopted for them, and with some websites a plush toy of them too.
Sports events/ Music concerts.
If this guy is big on sports to music, why not see if their favorite team or band is playing any time soon. If they are buying tickets for them to attend, it is a great gift to give. Sometimes this can get very expensive. But remember, if you can’t afford it, there are other ways. Buying signed merchandise, unique collectables for their favorite team or band, are also good ways to do this.
The biggest focus is thinking about their passions. While they may seem to have everything they could want, getting creative, you can find out what will really leave them in shock and awe.
