Christmas Gift Ideas

Christmas is just around the corner, and it’s time to talk about the best gift ideas out there for the men in your life.

Men aren’t always the easiest to buy for. If you ask directly what they want, they may well give you either the unreasonable—season tickets to their preferred NFL team, a Bugatti Chiron, a month off work—or simply say they don’t want anything at all.

There is plenty that will satisfy most men in your life that fits snuggly in the middle ground between outrageous expense (or impossible demand) and an empty stocking over the mantel. Try a few of these out.

  1. Get him a great watch

Watches may seem old-timey and out of style, but a really great watch will please just about every man. There’s something James Bond-ish about having a classy watch. Get him a watch he’d wear with a good suit, a watch he’ll only wear out to an expensive dinner, and he’ll be super happy to receive it.

Be careful, though, make sure it’s the style he likes, and make double sure it’s a quality watch. Getting him something cheap (or cheap looking) will make the watch a useless gift, or it might make him start wondering if you’re trying to send a message (“Is she saying I’m always late?”).

  1. Get him tickets to one game

You can’t give him season tickets, but if he’s asking, get him part of what he wants. Try to get tickets to one game instead of all 16. Even if you sit in the back row, he’ll be thrilled to be able to tailgate a bit and be there to take in the atmosphere.

Get him a jersey with his favorite player’s name to go with the tickets so he’s got the outfit all ready to go cheer the team on.

  1. Get him beer (or beer accessories)

Men like beer. Not all men, but it’s a good bet yours does. Play a little detective and find out what his favorite kind of beer is, then buy him a big case. Or, take him on a beer tasting tour at one of your local breweries.

Or, if you really want to put out the cash and impress him, get him something like the Growler Chill so he can always have fresh, cold beer whenever he wants it.

  1. Get him clothes that make him look really good

It’s a silly myth that women love clothes and men don’t care what they wear. There may be some truth to it in a day-to-day scenario, but men want to be able to dress up and look good too. If you know his size and what he looks good in, buy him clothes that make him feel handsome and sexy, then take him out for a great night out at a fancy restaurant. Go to a play, walk around town down the fanciest streets, and take a night in a nice hotel together.

Let him live up to the dream image he has of himself in his own mind. He’ll love you forever for it.
