Men are notoriously hard to shop for, and if you’re pulling your hair out trying to find the perfect gift for your husband, you’re not alone. Whether you’re prepping for his birthday or about to celebrate your wedding anniversary, finding the right fit need not be stressful. Incorporating his personality and favorite hobbies with one of these awesome present ideas will definitely make for a gift he’ll adore.
An Adventure for Two
Does your husband like to get his heart pumping? Are you both adrenaline junkies? If he’s interested in extreme sports or at least will try anything once, look through a website like Excitations.com to sift through various local adventures the two of you could take on. Whether your geography offers rivers for rafting, mountains for hiking, or even the perfect launching point for hot air balloons, you can rest assured that you’ll find an activity he’s been wanting to try.
An Evening Alone
If you two have kids, you know how hard it can be to enjoy an evening in each other’s company without any distractions. Make sure you make the time you deserve to focus on each other and whisk him away for an evening alone. Maybe head to another city for an exciting romp around a new town or simply stay close to home and book a local hotel room for a relaxing stay-cation. Send the kids to their grandparents, or hire a trusted sitter from Urbansitter.com that way you’re not constantly fretting and your only worry is if you brought enough champagne. If you do decide to book a hotel, ask the staff to prepare a special surprise for your guy—whether it’s a cheese plate and wine waiting in the room or a masseuse that comes straight to your door, he’ll definitely appreciate the extra effort you’ve put in to make his gift thoughtful.
A Professional Surprise
If your husband works long hours, show him how much you appreciate his hard work and effort with a surprise at his office. Maybe it’s a delivery of his favorite food right to his desk (send a
meal every day for a week if you’re really trying to knock his socks off), or perhaps it’s a snack
delivery from a company like Graze.com that will keep him munching all day long. Looking for an inexpensive way you can make his day at the office special? Slip sweet notes into his jacket, pants pocket, and briefcase for fun surprises he will stumble upon all day long. Since he does spend long days at the office, make sure the décor is up to par and keeps him stimulated. Buy an art print for his office wall you know he’ll like, or invest in an ergonomic chair to help him prevent those back aches and pains. Men do love practicality, and gifts that help him during the 40-plus hours a week he spends at the office will be most appreciated.
Make it Fashionable
Does your husband like to dress well? Is he a fan of designer brands and looking coiffed before heading into work? Then find some fashion-forward items you know he’ll love. If you have a hard time selecting items, let Trunkclub.com help you. This company assigns a professional stylist to put together fashion boxes for your guy specifically based on his tastes and then sends it all right to your front door. Once you’ve got the threads figured out, don’t forget the accessories. Whether it’s a modern wallet or a new watch, finding the perfect additions to his outfit will give him confidence when he heads into the office.
A Sports Game
If you two are avid sports fans, make this celebration one to remember with tickets to an upcoming game that you know he’ll love. Even if the game is far off in the future, have him open up the tickets and revel in the excited look on his face. Anticipation is the name of the game, and you’ll both have fun looking forward to your upcoming sporty date.
From subscription boxes to office décor, a romantic candle-lit evening to grubbing on hot dogs at a sports game, consider what your husband likes most and pick from this awesome list of gift options that any man will appreciate.
