Men are so difficult to buy for, right? Even if you straight up ask them what they want, they won’t give you a straight answer. And if you get it wrong? Well, that’s not worth thinking about. So, if you’re stuck for ideas for a gift for the many in your life, read on: these ideas should give you some hints.
For the man that dresses down
I’m going to come straight out with it here – a lot of men don’t know how to wear clothes. Especially when they are in their late teens and early twenties. But if you find yourself forever making little suggestions as to what they should wear, take it from me: it can get irritating. So what do you do? Well, you could read this post for some summer fashion tips if you want to buy them some new gear. Or, alternatively, you can book them a day out with a stylist. They will complain at first, but deep down they will know it’s the right thing to do. And, with any luck, they will be better dressed from here on in!
For the man who dresses up
Now, while I think everyone should make an effort, there’s a lot to be said for restraining yourself. Some men just push those a boundaries a little too far and spend far too long in front of the mirror. And, there’s no chance in hell that you are going to buy an item of clothing that suits his sartorial tastes. Instead, think about getting him a massage treatment at a local spa. And, if he’s been a pain in the neck for the past couple of weeks, make it a full-on sports massage. He will end up in tears but won’t want to admit it so you will get away with it scot-free.
For the man who loves watches
If your guy loves watches, never buy him one yourself – unless you know the exact model he is looking for. Instead, think about getting him an accessory that he can keep it in. Any guy that has an expensive watch is going to need a watch winder or a safe to keep it in. He will be appreciative of the gesture, and will be able to keep his pride and joy safe, clean, and keeping time for many years to come.
For the man who loves sport
If your fashion-loving man also has a passion for a sport, then he probably already has the best-looking gym kit available already. So, sports gear is out, but there are plenty of alternatives. Top of my list is a Fitbit band. OK, it’s not 100% fashion related, but they look good on the wrist and, most importantly, they help you keep on top of your fitness. And as everyone knows, if you want to look your best, then feeling good and being in great shape is a must.
Hopefully, this has given you some great ideas for fashion-based gift-buying for men. If you have any other tips, I would love to hear them – so get in touch and share away.
