Shopping for guys can be tough, and there are only so many golf clubs you can get him before it starts to get old. If there is a birthday coming up in the next few months that you need to do some shopping for.
To show your affection, it’s important to pick something unique that shows that you put some thought and effort into his birthday. Even if nothing immediately comes to mind, it’s not too difficult to find a special present, all you need to do is spend some time shopping around and maybe take some advice from us.
Here is your guide to picking out birthday gifts that impress your recipient.
If you’re looking for something for the guy who has everything, art is the way to go. Picking out a unique piece of art is relatively easy thanks to the Internet. Sites like Etsy.com connect independent artists with shoppers, allowing you to easily find up and coming artists with a variety of styles to suit the tastes of your gift recipient. Unless he’s running out of wall space, a new piece of art is a fun way to breathe some life into his place and remind him of you whenever he sees it.
While shopping for clothing is hardly a unique idea, going for something more interesting than a sweater is still fun and novel. What’s a less common idea for a birthday gift? Try getting him a pair of VK Nagrani designer underwear.
The designer has a variety of off the wall styles that we guarantee he doesn’t have anything else like in his dresser. Ted Silver of luxury retailer, Weiss & Goldring describes the eccentric designer, “He continues to push and blur boundaries. Like most great things, he is truly an acquired taste. Be warned, if you want to match wits with him, think twice. There is a fine line between genius and insanity, I’m still deciding which side of the line VK belongs.”
Don’t want to go for underwear? The designer has a crazy cool collection of socks that are anything but boring.
Ok so you didn’t find a piece of art that seemed right, and he’s already got all the socks and underwear one could ever need, where do you look? Maybe focus on a gift that’s less material and go for an experiential purchase for his birthday. If he’s a fan of cars, try renting out a luxury car for the day. It’s a fun way to celebrate a birthday in style, and it’s never going to be expected.
If you want to do something together, head to a local microbrewery and take a tour or do a tasting, it’s a fun way to spend the day and you might learn a little something about hops. Should neither of those options really appeal to him, there’s nothing better than a good massage, and that’s something everyone can enjoy. It’s relaxing, it’s a good way to de-stress, and it has too many health benefits to name, just ask the Mayo Clinic.
So you might not think of yourself as a gift shopping guru, but you can certainly do better than last year’s Office Max gift card. Give him something unique that shows you put some thought into this year’s birthday, it’ll mean a lot, we swear.
