6 UNUSUAL GIFT IDEAS FOR HIM
The perfect gift is one that’s thoughtful, personal, and shows how much you care about the giftee, but shopping for men isn’t always easy – especially when they say they don’t want anything. While most men act like they would be happy with anything, it will mean a lot to them if you surprise them with a gift idea that they wouldn’t have expected. So, if you’re tired of going for the same, traditional gifts for men and would like to up your gift-giving game, then you’ve come to the right place. Here, we think outside the box to ensure there is a unique gift idea for every personality type out there. Read on to discover 6 cool and unusual gift ideas for the man in your life.
Remote Control Wand or Cushion
Losing the remote control is an issue that disrupts every household, and you usually have to throw all the couch cushions on the floor to find it. That’s why a remote control pillow would make a great, albeit unusual, gift for your loved one. Aside from being a great throw pillow for the couch, he can also get cosy on the sofa hugging his pillow while watching his favourite show, and he’ll never worry about losing sight of the remote again – although he may accidentally switch channels with a tight squeeze of the cushion. Moreover, many men of this generation are avid Harry Potter fans, which is why a remote control wand to “alohomora” the TV is a great gift idea.
They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, which is why any scrumptious snack that he doesn’t get to indulge in every day is going to be extra special. If your fella is a big fan of tasty treats (who isn’t!) then opting for a bouquet of beef jerky is perfect since they are the perfect flowers for men. While chocolate is a fine choice, giving the manly man in your life a taste of some succulent beef cuts will win over his heart.
When it comes to scented gifts, most of us think of perfumes and colognes. But, why not take things up a notch and give the men in your life a unique gift with their favourite scent. Manly candles are all the rage right now, offering various scents of all the things men love, from earthy scents such as campfires to coffee, popcorn, and peppermint.
Barney Stinson definitely turned a few heads when he threw on those suit pyjamas in How I Met Your Mother, so show your sophisticated man that he is dashing, even in his sleep, with his very own pair of suit pyjamas. You can opt for flashy or simple styles to match your loved one’s personality and preferences.
Speaking of fabulous sitcom men, few knew how to live life as well as Chandler and Joey from Friends. Make your man feel like one of the guys with the ultimate gift of comfort. Find the perfect recliner chair or “Rosita” and place it in front of “Stevie the TV” to show your better half how important he is to you.
Almost every man out there loves a good BBQ, and you really can’t go wrong with the traditional BBQ tools. However, to make your man feel special, there are some unique items that no other BBQ party will have. Classy men deserve a good, strong scotch after a BBQ dinner, and you can make the men in your life feel extra fancy by taking their whiskey chillers to the next level. Give all the golfers in your life some golf ball whiskey chillers and watch how excited they get. After all, they look TEErific and your loved ones will be dying to putt them into their glasses! If your loved ones are more drawn to hockey than golf, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. The manly men in your life who like to grill their meats and skate on the rink will be absolutely enamoured with a hockey stick BBQ set. Combine their passions so they can fire up the grill in the best way possible.
Finding a special gift to show the man in your life how much you appreciate him isn’t always easy. But, instead of opting for socks, cologne, or a nice tie, make him feel heard by giving him something unique and sentimental that he will cherish. By paying attention to his hobbies and interests and choosing a gift accordingly, you’ll be able to express your love in the most special way.
