Men aren't always the easiest people to buy gifts for, so you have to put in extra effort in searching for the perfect gift - especially if the recipient is someone you love. To make the search a little bit easier for you, I've rounded up a short list of items that men will surely love to receive as gifts. Tried, tested, and appreciation guaranteed!
No sports buff would be able to resist these, especially if they're season/playoff/finals tickets! Now if your significant other is into boxing or mixed martial arts, get him tickets to an event with his favorite boxer/fighter in the card.
2. An expensive watch.
I've read somewhere that watches make perfect graduation gifts. And true enough, when my brother graduated from college, he received a designer watch as a gift.
For men, a watch is an acknowledgement of hard work, and for the fresh graduate, it is an encouraging nod to the his upcoming professional undertakings. More than a quirky tie or a crisp handkerchief, a watch symbolizes maturity and growth, and will be put to good use as a man enters the working world.
For guys who care about their appearance, stylish apparel and a nice pair of shoes are always a welcome gift. As British designer Oliver Spencer would say, "Good shoes stand the test of time, and are almost oblivious to the ebbs and flows of fashion."
So go ahead, get your man those Weejuns from GH Bass. Or if your significant other is a sneaker freak like mine, surprise him with a kick-ass pair from the Jordan Retro Collection.
In this day and age where technology has become so advanced that you can even turn the gas stove off with a smartphone, any man would surely want to receive a new gadget as a gift.
If you're feeling a tad generous, you might want to fork out a smartphone complete with a postpaid plan for your loved one. Now if he's ahead of his time and already has his hands on the latest smartphone, why not get him some tech accessories to go with it? You can shop for gadgets at Zalora Philippines where there's an array of speakers, amplifiers, and even wearable devices that your man will surely love.
5. Video games.
It's no secret that men love their video games just as much as women love bags and heels. For men, spending time with their XBox One or Playstation 4 is just another way to relax, a way to unwind and release stress, just like watching sports. In that sense you're actually doing your husband/boyfriend a favor by surprising him with Halo 5, or better yet, the much-talked about remake of Final Fantasy VII.
I'll let you in on a secret. Men find it attractive when a woman understands video games, all the more if she plays. Trust me on this. My husband was smitten when I busted his ass on Tekken. Haha!
So next time you're tempted to give your husband a tie, a pair of socks, or a belt, because you think he needs it, think again. He might need it, but might not actually want to receive it as a gift. ;)
