Is there a birthday coming up for a special man in your life?
Are you unsure of what to get him this year?
Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Men are notoriously hard to shop for and that’s why we put together this list of gifts.
Read on for eight unique birthday gifts for him that your man will love.
Is your man into fitness and exercise? If so, a Fitbit could be the perfect gift option. Fitbits range in price depending on how high tech they are, but they aren’t very expensive.
Fitbits are a great gift for an active guy as they help keep track of his movements. Just one watch can monitor the number of steps he takes a day, the number of hours he slept, and his heart rate during any given physical activity.
Be careful, he may just get addicted to his Fitbit and insist you go on long walks every night so he can get his steps in. Buying him a fitness watch is nice, but not all good deeds go unpunished.
2) Grooming Kit
One way to make your man feel great is to make him look and smell great. The best way to do this is with a grooming kit full of the best male grooming products.
Treat your guy to a kit complete with shaving cream, face wash, shampoo, and a razor.
When you do the research and find what the best male products are it means he won’t have to. Maybe he’s been using Suave soap from Walgreens for $2 his entire adult life. A box of high-quality grooming items from Old Spice just might open his eyes to what else is out there and change his life.
Hook him up with a quality men’s face wash to make his birthday great.
3) Board Game
Strategy board games are becoming more and more popular these days. A board game is one of the best unique birthday gifts for him because the two of you can play it together.
Boardgames are essentially bonding in a box. If you have multiple friends to play with regularly then look for games that allow four or more players, otherwise a two player game is probably your best bet.
Lords of Waterdeep, Settles of Catan, and Twilight Struggle are a few strategy board games that will provide hours of entertainment.
There is a whole host of board game sites that you can look at to find your dream board game. Many of them post videos of reviews and of actual people playing the game so you can assess if you’ll enjoy playing it.
4) A High-Quality Jacket
Autumn is here and the temperatures are dropping. This means your man is going to need to keep warm somehow.
For his birthday invest in a high-quality jacket that fits his personal style. Is he a trendy hipster? Shoot for denim. Is he a motorcycle guy? Go for leather.
You know your man best and you know what kind of jacket he’ll love. Once you buy him the perfect jacket for his birthday, he’ll think of you all through the winter when he puts it on.
Maybe the perfect gift for your guy isn’t a material possession but rather a ticket to an event.
If he’s into music, check local concerts happening in the next few months. If he’s into sports, get him a front row seat to his favorite team.
Get him two tickets so he can decide to take you or someone else in his life who’s a fan. Tickets are a great gift because sometimes experiences are worth more than items.
6) Gaming System
We touched on boardgames, but how about an electronic gaming system?
These consoles don’t have to break the bank. Nintendo has been releasing revamped versions of their original gaming systems like the NES and the SNES for around $60.
These systems both have the games preprogrammed into them so you don’t have to spend extra on getting him games.
The NES and SNES will also transport him back to a simpler time. This is one of those unique birthday gifts for him that he will get years of use out of.
7) Personalized T-Shirts
These days you can turn almost anything you want into a t-shirt. Getting your man a few customized t-shirts could be the perfect birthday gift.
Think about what he likes when it comes to movies, tv shows, and pop culture. Then take characters or quotes from those things and put them on a t-shirt for him.
There are plenty of websites that will print t-shirts for you saying whatever you want to say. This gift is unique and personal and he will love wearing around all his favorite things.
8) Decor for His Office
If your man has to spend eight hours a day in an office, it might be nice to spice things up for him.
Get him some tasteful decor for his office that he can also have fun with.
Consider a miniature billiards table or a basketball hoop for the back of the door. Things like this will make his day to day life more enjoyable and less stressful.
Other office decor ideas include an engraved plaque with his name on it or a fancy frame for his college diploma.
