Gift Ideas for Men

June 10, 2012

             

My husband’s birthday is coming up, so I have been trolling stores and the internet looking for unique gift ideas. David is a very thoughtful gift-giver, so I always try to find interesting presents and make his birthdays as special as he makes mine.

Here are some of the things I came across in my search, in case you are on the lookout for Father’s Day or birthday gifts for your husband, dad, brother, boyfriend, male friend, etc. I’ve still got a couple of weeks before David’s birthday, so let me know if you have seen other good gift ideas!

Personalized Burlap Bookmark Made From Upcycled Coffee Bean Sacks- I ordered a couple of these printed with nicknames or inside jokes, to help make his textbook-reading a bit more enjoyable.

Paris Map Bookmarks- I took this digital file to Kinko’s, color-copied it onto cream cardstock, an laminated them. We went to France last summer and are enjoying the memories, plus David loves history/maps, so I think these will be both useful and sentimental. This shop on Etsy (memoriesemporium) sells several different shapes of several different maps; some might also make cute coasters. I think they also have London and New York map graphics.

Keeping with the French theme, the Say It Sweet shop on Etsy carries a number of different small printed posters with French phrases of all kinds, some romantic, some clever. I had fun scrolling over them to read the quotes.

Other shops on Etsy have tons of cute graphics, phrases, and other printed goods to frame or display too. I love this one depicting a couple from different states from delovelyArts. That shop sells graphics of states and cities too. I also adore the state prints from 1canoe2, the sweet little sayings and birds from katieleese, and the mixed media collage-style pieces from TheArtsyGirl.

“Good Morning, Handsome” Latte Mug- This shop (theprintedsurface) on Etsy also has “Good Morning, Beautiful,” and a cute set of mugs that say “I’m his Mrs.” and “I’m her Mr.”

50 Jobs Worse Than Yours book- I’m hoping this will make the toils of the workaday world a bit less discouraging than they seem sometimes. Ha!

Broo- It’s shampoo made from BEER in Asheville, North Carolina that contains no sulfates, parabens, phthalates, silicones, added dyes, synthetic fragrance, or GMOs.

Coffee Cup Gadget-Charger for the Car- This gadget is shaped like a coffee cup so it fits in your car’s cup holder, and has two electrical outlets and one USB port for charging iPods, iPhones, laptops, or other electronics while you drive. The reviews made it sound like the USB port does not work to charge an iPad though, so you may want to investigate that further if that’s what you are hoping for.

1001 Songs You Must Hear Before You Die book- There are a number of books along these lines compiling lists of “the greatest” albums, movies, beers, whiskeys, wines, natural wonders, books, children’s books, paintings, foods, video games, comics, places to travel, classical recordings, buildings, historic sites, travel escapes, golf holes, days that shaped the world, and dream cars.

Speaking of books, I also like the idea of gifting a travel guide or two for a place your guy wants to go in the future. Even if you are still saving or are not sure when you’ll make it, the travel guidebooks can be nice reading in the meantime, and sort of a hopeful reassurance to him that you’ll get there. You could combine this with a piece of luggage if you like- I always find good suitcases at fair prices at TJ Maxx. For a couple of other travel-related gift ideas, you may want to pop over to this previous post.

I have to admit that I don’t really know how Apple TV works or what it does, but David has his eye on it and mentioned it as a possible birthday gift idea. Maybe you are more technological than me and can figure it out?

Similarly gadgety, this pocket projector for iPhone 4 seems pretty cool. I also looked at a less expensive one on Amazon, and reviews seem to be mixed, so you might want to do some background work before you buy. I’d think it would be handy for travel or business uses, or easily sharing the videos he takes on his iPhone?

There are some unique “experience” gifts on websites like this one. You choose your region, and it gives you a list of what is available nearby. For example, I noticed a golf lesson with a PGA pro, DaVinci scavenger hunt, bull riding school, hangliding, a hot air balloon ride, skateboarding lesson, scenic biplane flight, helicoptor tour, scuba-diving, or driving a stock car around a racetrack.

Lastly, I thought this “hooked on you” idea could be kind of cute, especially now in the summer when beach pails are everywhere. This example is filled with gummy worms, but I am thinking you could also fill a small bucket with little fish and write reasons you love him on each one? Or use the phrase on a picture frame or hook for coats or keys? Seems like there is some creative potential there…

Happy shopping! Hope you find something touching for those important men in your life!

Thanks! I hope David will like the ones I chose! I got some cute little Paris gift tags and sort of old-fashioned wrapping paper too. Glad you like them! Maybe we can use some for Matt and Greg, ha ha. :)

I know, right?! If I had a nickel for every time I said “Why didn’t I think of THAT?!” I would definitely be a billionaire, like the people who actually DID think of these things. :) To my non-technological eye, that charger looked like it compared pretty well to the bigger, boxier ones too!
