What Guys Want for Gifts


Selecting the "most suitable" gift for a man is a challenging task. Irrespective of the recipient's age and his relation to you, your main purpose is to give him something special that falls within your budget range but thrills him. While most guys accept gifts with wide smiles, there are only a few that they actually use. Consider his personality when giving him a gift for any occasion.

Sports Fan

  • Give the sports buff front-row tickets to an upcoming golf, football or baseball game, or a gift certificate for golf or tennis lessons. Another appropriate gift for a sports fan is personal equipment such as a tennis racket, soccer kit or golf club. Consider a pair of running or sports shoes in his favorite colors, a sports shirt with his favorite team's logo across the front, a sport's cap or any other apparel if sporting equipment falls out of your budget range. Create a personal hamper for the guy filled with his favorite sport-related items such as a new golf club, golf balls, score cards, ball markers, golf towel, decorative covers for club heads and divot repair tools.

Romantic At Heart

  • Although not as vocal as women, men love romance and activities catered around it. Give the soft-hearted guy a basket filled with romantic items such as heart-shaped chocolates, a stuffed teddy, old romantic DVD's, scented candles and aromatherapy oils, a set of silk boxers, a romantic novel, a photo album filled with photos of the two of you hugging, kissing, cuddling or holding hands. Massage the guy, take a hot bath together and plan other romantic activities throughout the day to pamper the recipient.

Gadget Boy

  • A techie will appreciate the latest gadget. Survey the market beforehand to get the cheapest deal as certain electronics could cost a fortune. From quirky sets to traditional gizmos, there is something to meet every taste. Gadgets suitable for any occasion include an mp3 player, a personal laptop, digital camera, surround-sound speaker system, a video camera or any other piece of electronic equipment he likes. If the myriad of choices baffle you, consider a pre-paid gift voucher that allows him to buy his favorite item from a particular store.

Office Executive

  • Every guy appreciates a piece of office equipment to proudly display at work. Select a gift that reflects his professional status and makes his job easier. A plain leather desk set in his favorite color; a leather-bound frame with a family photo; a stylish paperweight; an elegant briefcase with space for plenty of files, documents, cell phone, PDA and other essentials or a leather-bound daily planner with a Waterman pen are some options.
