Let’s face it: no matter how well you know the man in your life they are at the very least, difficult, to buy gifts for. They have vague interests, complicated rituals for ordinary objects, and they will never retire that pair of grungy sweats that you’ve tried to “replace” for the last three years.
Instead of pulling your hair out at the last minute, check out this list of creative gifts for him. There is sure to be something on the list that will suit even the most difficult to buy for man in your life!
Creative Gifts for Him: 5 Fun Ideas
Many of us women love our subscription boxes, and there are a ton of great new subscription box options for men now too–everything from clothing, accessories, vinyl records, to alcohol or fitness items!
This is an especially cool idea if your man is always a little nosy about your subscription boxes. He can have one of his own, and if there’s not something that appeals to him this month, there may be something he loves next month!
Here are some suggestions: Hello Fresh or Blue Apron for guys who like to cook (fresh from-the-farm to you ingredients with easy-to-follow recipes delivered to your door), men’s grooming subscription boxes, and BBQ Box or Butcher Box (for the grillmaster or chef).
For the music lover, think vinyl records. Check out Vinyl Moon, VNYL, or Amazon’s Vinyl of the Month Club. This is a great gift that “keeps on giving,” as they say and can help your guy build his music collection, or even introduce him to new music.
If you’re still having trouble, check out Cratejoy for loads of subscription box choices for everyone and every taste.
When it comes to creative gifts for him, this might be my favorite! It’s a really fun idea for anyone who has a favorite sports team or player, celebrity, or TV show or movie–and isn’t that everyone?
When you gift a Cameo, you’re giving the unforgettable gift of a personalized video from any one of literally thousands of celebrities! What could be more personalized, or more memorable?
How Cameo works
Find the right celebrity for any occasion
Birthdays, milestones, or even a well-deserved roast, the perfect celebrity is only a search away. Find yours, and request them.
Get your personalized video message
Include all the important details in your request form, like information about the person the Cameo is for and unique details about the recipient or the occasion. After your request is submitted, stars have up to seven days to complete it. Some celebs offer a 24-hour delivery option if you need it sooner.
Capture the moment
Whether you’re giving a Cameo or receiving a personalized video, it’s fun to record the reaction–which is sure to be one of pure excitement!
If you have a sports or music enthusiast on your list, a great way to give a meaningful gift that they’ll actually enjoy is by taking them to an event.
Plan a little trip or experience based on their favorite sport, team, band, etc. You can go along or give him free reign to take a buddy! No doubt he will be all smiles when he realizes that you took the time to plan something for him that is suited to one of his specific interests!
When you’re thinking of creative gifts for him, how about a higher-end, “splurge” gift? This is perfect for the guy who has those certain brands or products they really love, but that they never want to buy for themselves.
Perhaps he likes a nice scotch or whiskey, some high-end cologne, etc. Pick him up something that he likes but that he wouldn’t typically splurge on for himself.
Or, maybe he’s a cigar enthusiast but rarely buys them for himself since they’re a bit expensive. In that case, a box of cigars can make an excellent gift. For example, any type of Montecristo cigars will be a great way to show how much you care.
You can even do this if you notice he is getting low on something he really likes. This way he won’t have to use it sparingly, he will have a new one ready to go thanks to his lovely and attentive partner!
Girls are not the only ones who love candy! Order some high-end sweets online, and if you want to personalize the packaging, take the candy or chocolates out, and put them in something more suited to his tastes.
You could use a cigar humidor, a decorated tin, or even a simple white box from the craft store! Sweets for your sweetie don’t have to be overly feminine or frilly. You can pick up his favorites and easily DIY the perfect container.
