It’s not always easy finding the unique right gift for the man in your life. In fact it is nearly always very difficult. The default position when gifting men tends to be alcohol or reading material. Both are good safe choices and hard to fault really, but what usually makes the biggest impact is when you can show that you have applied a bit of thought to the gifting process and gone the extra mile to find something a little bit more special than repeating the same bottle of Whiskey that you went out and bought last year, or the new best-seller by that author that they really like. So here are a few ideas of alternatives that are guaranteed to hit the spot.
Get Him Out And Go Too
Most men love to explore and to get out into nature. If there is the opportunity to do it with a special lady or with their family then it is even better. The problem is, lots of partners aren’t as keen on spending time in the bush as their men. So find a solution that works for everyone. Find a place where there are luxury camping tents for sale, pick out one that works for you, but one that you know will also work for him. It’s the gift that says, “Go on, have some fun in the wilds and take me with you.” Who would not be moved by that?
Now we said that buying booze wasn’t necessarily the way to go. It’s pretty boring and purchasing a bottle of something nice is generally a thing he can do by himself quite easily. But what about a tour of a craft brewery or a gin micro-distillery? It’s a little different, almost certainly ends up with some complementary drinks and it can either be done as a day out with the lads or, even better, it’s something a little more intimate that the two of you can do together. Perhaps it can be the motivation behind a nice little weekend trip away with each other.
Since the legendary Daedalus and Icarus took to the skies almost every man has loved the idea of flying. For many it is a dream never destined to come true, but as the special person in his life perhaps you can help change that. Now we are not talking a trip on a jet liner, that’s pretty dull. We are thinking something a little more exciting. A hot air balloon if slow and steady is his pace. Or a tandem parachute jump if he is all about the adrenaline. And there are plenty of options in between as well, like gliding, helicopter flips or an aerobatic experience that will see him looping the loop and pulling all sorts of crazy g-forces as the plane rolls and spins. No matter what pace he likes to live his life at, there is almost certainly an aeronautical experience made for him.
