Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year! All the kindness, cheer, festivities, and joy just make the season bright. I like to think of myself as a generous person, loving to give of my time and talents. But one area that I struggle is in buying the perfect gift, especially for the one I love. The idea of surprising my man with a very special gift on Christmas morning is thrilling, but I also find that picking out that special something can bring a lot of stress to the otherwise festive season. I know I am not alone. I recently read that 84% of consumers feel stressed about choosing the right gift. I want to share some tips, and specific gifts to help you find a great gift for your guy even when you are not a great gift giver.
Here Are Some Quick Tips For Finding a Great Gift For Your Guy
Consider his likes and dislikes:
What are his hobbies? How does he spend his spare time? What is something that maybe he has mentioned wanting that he has not purchased for himself? Try to tailor your gift to things that he enjoys.
What’s the budget?
Hopefully you have discussed a budget for the holiday season, including gifts for each other. It can be totally awkward if he buys you a gift that is in another realm of expense than the gift you are planning on giving him.
What is the meaning behind it?
It is always a wonderful idea to give a gift with some level of meaning. It could be sentimental, sweet, personalized or includes an inside joke/story you share. Gifts with meaning are simply special to both the receiver and giver.
The best gifts combine these three principles. So, I have compiled a short list of specific gifts that speak to his likes, that are budget friendly, and have loads of meaning. Below are some personalized gifts that you can purchase for your man on Amazon from the “The Gifted Oak”:
