How Confident Are You Buying Your Man A Gift?

July 31, 2017 No Comments

We all know what a headache it can be to buy anyone a gift. It doesn’t really matter who it is, it is unlikely that you are going to have an easy time of it. When it comes to buying something for the man in your life, you might sometimes find it especially difficult, even if you know him better than he knows himself. It can be frustrating when you don’t know what to get him, but if you approach it in the right way you just might be able to come out the other side with a present you can be proud of. In this post, we are going to help out on this front by looking at some of the things that are worth remembering as you go to buy him a gift. Here are some things you need to know.

Something New


If there is one rule of thumb to follow, it’s that you should do your best to go out on a limb somewhat. It can be tempting to go for something relatively safe, but in all likelihood, this will just mean that you end up buying him something very similar to what he has already got. If you are looking at that shirt and tie combination, you might want to think again – unless it really is time for him to upgrade his wardrobe a little. Instead, try to go out of your way to find something he isn’t going to expect at all. It is more often the element of surprise than anything else which really makes for a great gift, so get that right and you can be sure you are on the right track.

Something Personal


It is so easy to get hold of an item which is generic, likely to please, but ultimately impersonal. The problem is that it is much less likely to be appreciated compared to something which is a little more personal and thought through. If you want to buy him a present which he is likely to really appreciate, then you might want to think about finding a present which is either actually personalised or where you have obviously put some thought into making it ideal for him. A selection of mixed beer cases with his favourites is likely to go down well, rather than just a selection randomly chosen. Clothing which speaks to an aspect of his personality in some obvious way is likely to be appreciated compared to a white shirt. These things are simple and effective ways to really land the ultimate gift.

Nothing Work-Related


If there is anything that is likely to turn him away from the gift, it is probably if you buy him something related to work. Even if you think it might be useful and he might appreciate the gesture – which he might – it still isn’t going to be the kind of present which he is going to hold on to and treasure forever. Go for something that speaks to his real interests and desires instead. If his work literally is his dream, of course, then you might be in luck.

  • {PRGifted} Did you know that it's #NationalUnicornDay today? 🦄⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ What better way to mark the day than with @yesto_uk Grapefruit Vitamin C Glow Boosting Unicorn Peel Off Mask & Yes to Grapefruit Vitamin C Glow Boosting Unicorn Transforming Clay Cleanser!⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ Both are brightening and formulated for dull and uneven skin. They also both have Grapefruit Vitamin C too.⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ The Yes to Grapefruit Vitamin C Glow Boosting Unicorn Transforming Clay Cleanser will leave your tired, dull skin feeling clean, soft, smooth, refreshed and brightened. When your skin is clean, the pink clay turns to yellow, so you know exactly when to wash it off! 😀⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ The Yes To Grapefruit Vitamin C Glow Boosting Unicorn Peel-off Mask is a really pretty iridescent pink as it dries. I always recommend dermaplaning - defuzzing any peach fuzz you have - before using a peel-off mask of any kind, as then it shouldn't really hurt when it's time to peel it off.⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ You can get your hands on the Yes to Grapefruit Vitamin C Glow Boosting Unicorn range now as they are available from @beautybaycom! 🦄⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ #yestounicorns #vegan #unicorns #beauty #bbloggersuk #skincareaddict #skincarejunkie #claycleanser #naturalbeauty #naturalskincareproduct #vitaminC #unicorn #peeloffmask #grapefruit #myunicornlife #petitejoys #theeverygirl #theinstagramlab #instaskincare #veganskincare #skincarecommunity #femfeed #theblogtribe
