Buy your male friend or husband a gift basket or hobby-based present and have it delivered directly to his work or home. Find presents that suit his personality and dreams. An aspiring chef might really appreciate a picnic basket filled with kitchen gadgets while a hunter might enjoy a field dressing kit or hunting knife set. These "surprise" birthday gifts work well for most men, but make sure you send him appropriate gifts if you plan on shipping the items to his work.
Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Bouquet
Order your man a chocolate-dipped strawberry bouquet for his birthday and have it delivered right to his door. These displays come with fresh fruit dipped in milk, white or dark chocolate. You can choose to have a bouquet filled with only strawberries or a combination of pineapple and strawberries or three different types of fruits. The fruit is placed in a decorative vase that your friend or husband can use later on.
Juniper Bonsai Tree
Get him a miniature Juniper Bonsai tree instead of flowers for his birthday, and have the florists deliver the gift to his home. The tree comes with a large vase, so he can keep it indoors for decoration or transplant it into his garden and use the vase for other plants.
Give a hunter or a man who enjoys wild game a pack of elk steaks for his birthday. Many companies deliver these gifts right to his door. Order him a few choice cuts of meat along with ground elk burger. Some meat companies also offer a combination package of meats such as elk, chicken, salmon and buffalo.
Around the World Bucket Full of Beer
Order him an "Around the World" beer bucket gift set for his birthday, and have it delivered directly to his house. This gift includes an assortment of beers from all across the globe along with gourmet foods and cheeses. Any beer lover is sure to appreciate this gift. Just make sure to have the gift delivered to his home to avoid problems at his work, as alcohol might not be permitted at his place of business.
