Christmas is well on the way now, and many people are off trying to find the perfect present for the people that they love. However with things so financially difficult at this present time, is gift buying easier or harder?
Buying Christmas Gifts for Him
is generally difficult anyway, men usually go and buy themselves what they want – they just that into gifts for themselves. We women spend hours trying to locate that gift that will show much we love them, but they would probably just be happy with a power drill!
I think the trick is to combine practicality with personality; no man wants a cute little teddy bear with a love heart on it. That is a girl’s present. So think about the men in your life carefully whether it is your dad, boyfriend, husband, brother or uncle. Think about their character and also how you could make the present you buy for him as personal as possible while combining practicality. Here are a few examples:
1. If he loves wine, then why not try a Personalised Wine Gifts
. You can add your own message to a label, upload a photo and create something really unique. And if you go for personalised fine wines
rather than standard wines you are probably going to add that extra special touch to your gift.
2. If he is a smoker, then why not an Engraved Lighter
, on this too you could add a personalised message. There are a range of colours to choose from in the lighters range: silver, black, red, gold and blue, as well as some nostalgia lighters with film and celebrity themes. And if you want something a bit more extravagant then why not get an Engraved Zippo lighter
3. If he likes golf, then why not buy a golf clock or golfing photo frame and put a photo of you and him inside it. Other golf themed gifts include Engraved Golf Gift Clock with Pen
, Engraved Golf Marker Keyring
for a very affordable gift idea for him. Does he enjoy a tipple of spirits, whether it be vodka, whisky or some other crazy alcoholic beverage? Then consider an engraved hip flask, this is an affordable and thoughtful personalised gift for him. There are a couple of gift hip flasks to choose from, Engraved Hole in One Golf Hip Flask
as well as our Engraved Golf Hip Flask
. Hopefully, now if your dad is a golf lover, you have plenty of gifts to last him through his birthday, Christmas and any other special occasions or celebratory events in between!
4. If he likes trying new things then there is always an experience gifts
for example paintballing for 8 people. Not only will you be getting a great gift, it may be something you can take part in together or he could even do with his friends.
These are just a few ideas. Another thing that is a good idea is shopping online; you will most probably be able to find the same gift you saw in a shop, online. And most probably you will be able to find it cheaper. If you start your Christmas shopping early you won’t need to worry about gifts being out of stock because you’ll have been fully prepared. Starting early is not always a bad thing either, you could probably find loads of bargains and possibly save a few pennies on the way.
