How may times have you asked yourself: ‘what should I get him?’ or heard yourself saying: ‘He has everything’ or ‘I don’t know what he likes!’ The good news is that you are not the only one, we all have asked the same question and wondered about the same things year after year and somehow still end up buying the wrong gifts for him! Let’s face it the first thing we all think about when it comes to gifting a male it is either a sweater or a tie, and of course the good old pair of socks, right?
Having worked at a high end men’s clothing brand during my university days, I can confidently say that it taught me a few things about menswear including what kind of gifts men like to receive. As a Personal Shopper not only was I helping them in putting together a great suite or a whole new wardrobe, but also wearing my ‘therapist’ hat and hearing men of all ages and walks of life complain about the lousy gift the girlfriend or fiance or even the wife got them in return of the amazing gift they got them!
So yes my dears, men do take notice of these things just like us women and even they know the difference between a thoughtful and personal gift versus a lousy and cliche gift. Here are some of my gift ideas for him, where I have put together some traditional and some not so traditional items to gift that special male in you life this holiday season. Don’t forget to check out my Gift Ideas for Him YouTube video, linked here below, to get some more insight on what to get him next time you are out shopping gifts for him. Time to say good-bye to those typical and boring gifts for him and hello to some stylish and classy gifts for him!
