5 Practical Tips for Buying Gifts for Your Guy

Have you ever spent a large amount of money on a present that your husband never even used? Are you completely and utterly clueless every time you need to buy him a Christmas, birthday or anniversary gift? My husband is super hard to shop for and with Father’s Day coming up I thought I’d share some practical tips to remember when buying gifts for your guy:

1)  Plan ahead.

Many people go over budget because of last minute gift shopping. Teach yourself to start planning ahead, and think of gift ideas for your husband or significant other at least a month before the occasion. You might just spot a special promotion or deal if you do your research ahead of time!

2)  Ask him for his wish list.

The best way to ensure that you’re getting your guy a gift that he’ll actually like and use is by being straightforward and asking him what he wants. If you want your gift to be a surprise, then ask him for his wish list a few months beforehand.

3)  Be practical.

You may want to get your man something romantic or over-the-top for his birthday—but you’d be surprised at the number of guys who would appreciate receiving something practical. Upgrade his old shaving kit to a newer, nicer one. He’ll likely be very happy to receive something he can use on a daily basis.

4)  Consider giving him a gift card.

When in doubt, a gift card is always a great choice of gift. Why not get your husband a gift card to his favorite coffee shop, restaurant or sporting goods store? Does he love TV shows and movies? Who wouldn’t love a gift card to Fandango?

5)  Prepare him something homemade.

If you feel that your guy already has everything he needs and wants, then consider giving him something homemade and from the heart. Put together a basket full of his favorite snacks, as well as some funny and useful trinkets from your local dollar store.
