Many men can be notoriously difficult to buy for whether it is for their birthday, Christmas or Father’s Day. You can play it safe with something for them to use for their hobby like golf accessories or a new fishing lure. I am reassured that you can never have enough golf accessories or fishing lures! If the man in question is a businessman who spends a lot of time at his desk then novelty desk accessories work well or perhaps a new business card holder, smart pen or tie. These gifts are nothing out of the ordinary though and perhaps now is the time to try something a little different. The gift basket industry is growing, simply because you can group a whole heap of items together, wrap them up decoratively and you have a beautifully presented gift.
Gift baskets make great mens gift ideas and can be themed and even presented in a novelty container such as mini-golf bag or treasure chest, but a metal bucket, wicker basket or wooden box work equally well. The idea with most gift baskets is that the container can be re-used or re-purposed. You can choose from a huge selection of commercially available gift baskets with everything from nuts, snacks, cookies and chocolate to beer and coffee! If it is milestone birthday for which you are purchasing a gift basket then attach a balloon to the handle with “Happy 40th Birthday” or other appropriate saying. If you have time the recipient of your gift will likely be more appreciative if you personally select the items to go in the gift basket.
Regards pampering gifts you can always choose items of a grooming nature to include in your gift basket for men such as shaving equipment, aftershave lotions and shaving balms. Many men these days will also admit to using their wives moisturisers when suffering from dry skin so why not drop a men’s moisturiser into their gift basket. Another appropriate pampering mens gift idea can include nail grooming tools and these often come in their own gift sets for handy storage. A new shaver or beard trimmer can be an ideal gift if there old one has seen better days and isn’t giving your man the same neat trim it used to.
Let us not forget the increasing industry of men’s grooming and self care amongst the gay community and also young business professionals who like to maintain a well-groomed image. As this market continues to grow we can expect to see an increase in the range of pampering gift baskets for men and the products with which to fill them as great mens gift ideas.
