The gift of love - Tips on what to gift the men in your life!

Tips on the gift of love

Buying a gift for men can be quite tricky and more complex than a complicated calculus! After all, men do not talk about what they would like. So as a woman, you need to bring out all the observant qualities you possess and find that one perfect gift. Here are a few tips that will help you in choosing a gift for your father brother or boyfriend.

Less is More: Does a perfect birthday for you mean sitting in the middle of the room surrounded by lots of gifts and presents? It is not so with men. Men prefer not to be overwhelmed with too many gifts at a time. So, keep it simple and single.

Cut the Sentimentality: Gifting a photo-frame with a picture from your most special trip together? Good gift, wrong person! Men do not like mush. It doesn’t go down well with their macho image. They may accept the gift you give out of love for you, but do not be too surprised if you find your gift lying in some corner of the house, uncared for.

Know your man: Does your brother read too many Archie comic books? Does your boyfriend never miss a football match where Lionel Messi is playing? Small observations like these can help greatly in choosing a gift that will be highly appreciated. So, gift your brother a collection of his favourite comic series and your boyfriend a Messi T-shirt and see their faces glow with happiness! Mind you, you will have to keep a lookout for happiness too because men are not very expressive with emotions!

Do not splurge: Men are uncomfortable with expensive gifts. If he is your boyfriend, it would be highly advisable not to loosen your purse strings much. Expensive gifts may only end up making him feel pressurized to reciprocate the same.

Keep his age in mind: What you gift your 25-year-old boyfriend cannot be the same as your what you choose for your 55-year-old dad, just because they happen to be men! Keep the age in mind and the idiosyncrasies that go along with it.

Do it yourself: Men are not really into fine dining. Cook dinner for him, he will feel really special. Or, bake a birthday cake for him! At the same time, take care not to make it too lovey-dovey with cards and hand-made gifts.

Check the utility: Buy him something that he will use. He will appreciate such a gift more. Remember, in the end, it’s the thought that counts more! The manner of giving is worth more than the gift.
