Categories of Gifts
- Gifts to show love and affection
- Gifts to address his pressing needs and wants
Gifts to show love and affection
These are gifts that are an expression of love and they range from flowers, gift cards, paintings, and drawings. They are gifts that represent abstract thoughts and feelings. They in most cases, convey messages to your partner.
So buying your man a flower petal this Christmas won’t be a bad idea. Gifts cards with the inscription “Merry Christmas to the one that completes me” sends a strong message to your man.
Let’s also think this way, don’t you think to engage the service of an art sculpture to carve a portrait of him with an inscription “Christmas wishes of love, joy, and happiness to the one I love” would be a great idea? Jeez! How sweet would that be! You have taken him to cloud 9 on the emotional level with this kind of gift. You have also made his Christmas worth it as you have finitely made him feel special and on top of the world. Yay! That’s the thrill gifts should give and you should consider this idea.
I hope you feel the gist, Yes you should. He is a man and father Christmas drools and things may not really be cool for him as they are usually for kids but hey, you can tweak it for him! Yes, you can!
How do you?
In the spirit of the celebration, how about customizing things in the father Christmas style with his name engrained there?
A good idea?
You can purchase an empty leaflet by customizing it with few lines indicating how special he is and his impact in your life and you wishing him the best of Christmas.
The purpose of these kinds of gifts is not to address any need of his in particular but just to show how much you care and appreciate him for everything. It also goes to show how much you value him.
You can also think of other gifts that fit into this category but not mentioned here but the ideas of the kind of gifts that would show more of affection rather than necessity are what sufficed in this category.
Gifts to address his pressing needs and wants
You should always show your man how much you care about his welfare if he does the same too. This Christmas time is another opportunity to let him know how special he is by looking out for what he lacks and needs and gifting him this festive period.
You surely want your man to look good and his deodorants might be exhausted, a wrapped one might do. Gifts that define his looks may be a good idea…A nice pair of shirts to complement his present ones, a new wristwatch or a new pair of shoes to match his present stock are gift ideas you may think of this Christmas but make sure he needs them and they fit the occasion.
A mans wants and needs may appear insatiable, it is thus impossible to be able to provide for all these needs but it isn’t a bad idea to make a try. For example, your man might be a bearded guy and of course in the beard gang, don’t you think he might need a better beard comb and other beard products like beard butter and so on? Surprise him by getting this as a gift for Christmas. If he lives alone and stays in a flat, to help his bachelor-ship ministry, a cup set for dining table would be something that would address a pressing need. Most men do shave and getting a shaver won’t be a bad idea.
Other examples of gifts that addresses his pressing needs and wants are:
- A headphone if he is the type that loves music and listening to it. A guitar, piano, a mouth organ
- A nightcap
- A photo and video printer to help in his office works
- Lip balm
- Shaving kit to guard against ingrown hairs, razor burn and cuts
- Liquor Decanter Set
- If he is a sportsman, you can get him a personalized sportswear for this Christmas, sports kits like embroidered golf towel, gold sticks would do.
- You can also get him a personalized whiskey barrel where he can store his favourite whiskey to age to perfection.
- If he has a car, how about getting him a dash cam for a Christmas gift? Oh, he would love that!
- Who says you can’t even get me locksmith tools for his house security? Whether used locksmith tools or new, thoughtful gifts go a long way
Board Games and other games; A backgammon set may be one of the oldest games around but men still Wally around it, getting him one would be massive! Getting him a chess game, scrabble, monopoly and even card games would be a statement- it shows you care about what he likes. If he is a play station and Xbox game addict, you may decide to get him games pad for them or utensils needed for such.
You might notice his inner wears (boxers and singlets) needs an overhaul, why not buy him new packs for Christmas?
If he is an avid reader of books, a collection of his favourite book classics would do. Make sure they are books that fall in line with his interests. Getting him a mini-bookshelf is another idea.
Little things like cufflinks to match his shirts may mean a lot to him, you can add that to the list of things you get for him
