One of the most difficult things that anyone can do is buying the perfect gift. It’s hard to find the right gift for anyone, but men can be especially hard. There are lots of things to get children – toys are always a good choice – and there is as large a variety of gifts for women. Men don’t have such obvious gifts and there are many wives and girlfriends who end up confused and wondering what to get the man in their life because they know he isn’t going to want flowers, or gift baskets, or anything like that.
However, unless he is so masculine that he cannot even appreciate it when you say ‘I love you’ he actually will like flowers or a gift basket! While it’s probably not a great idea to give your man a huge bouquet, find out what flowers he does like. He might like roses or perhaps he likes daisies. See what he admires – you’ll find out more about him this way! Now combine the flowers, just a few, with a gift basket. Find a nice basket that isn’t too girly, and weave the flowers around the handle or put them in a small vase or pot. Fill the basket with things he likes – his favorite cologne, his favorite brand of watch if he needs a new one, a bottle of wine or favorite beer, a small tool set, a set of oil paints, or whatever else he is interested in.
Many people think that men always want new clothes, a watch, shoes, or a basketball. While many men do like to have a toolset – after all, they can fix things around the house and look good doing it – men have other interests. Does your man like to draw? Get him a nice set of charcoal pencils. Does he have a favorite author? Get him a set of books by the author. These unique gifts have a lot more thought behind them, and if you pay attention, your man will tell you by actions what he likes. Even if he doesn’t say it, he’ll appreciate the trouble you went to for him.
