As the holiday season rolls around, you have enough to worry about without the stress of what to buy the man in your life, but it’s always challenging. They probably have everything they need. So when you are stumped, it’s best to start at the source and think about what type of guy you’re shopping for.
If you want some fresh ideas, check out our favorite gift ideas for different types of men below:
- The practical gift: While many kids complained about receiving socks growing up, it becomes a thought of the past as they turn into young professionals. Socks are a great gift because they are the one item that most people don’t buy for themselves. Want something more unique? Think about what type of socks the man in your life needs—if he likes winter hiking, go for some SmartWool socks to keep him warm.
- The entertainment gift: There are so many options in this category, from gaming consoles to subscriptions to ESPN, Hulu and Netflix. Once again, think about what he needs and enjoys doing. Another option is to buy an all-in-one entertainment device, like the Touchjet Pond Projector so he can watch movies, play games and more all in one place – take an extra 25 percent off in honor of Black Friday with code THANKS25 when purchasing via the Touchjet website. Also, entertainment doesn’t have to be limited to screens, it can come in other forms, such as subscriptions to magazines.
- The professional gift: Professional attire is expensive and can be difficult to pick out for yourself. Help your man add a new twist to his style by getting him a new tie or watch. Check out stores with a wide selection like Macy’s or Men’s Wearhouse so you have a variety of options.
- The travel gift: This gift is very budget-dependent, but it doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy some time away or take a trip together. Whether you can afford a weekend getaway to a nearby city or a full-blown vacation, check out sites like Vacasa or Airbnb to find great deals and get a more local feel when traveling.
