Gifts for men – your guide to buying a present for a man

Spoil the special man in your life with these great gift ideas for blokes of all shapes and sizes.

How to choose the best presents for him

The art of buying the perfect gift is one very few people can wrap their head around and some people in your life can be particularly hard to buy for. Finding the ideal present for the man in your life is no easy feat, no matter whether you’re shopping for your husband, dad, brother, son or boyfriend.

But before you wimp out and go down the impersonal gift card route, take some time to think about your man, his interests and his personality and how they can lead you to the perfect gift.

  • Is he a music fanatic? Would a top-of-the-line pair of noise-cancelling headphones suit him, or perhaps an upgrade to his stereo system?
  • Does he like the outdoors? If so, he might appreciate a gift that lets him get out and about and be active. Think fishing gear, camping supplies, or anything to do with sport.
  • Is he a gadget nerd? A new iPad or iPhone could be the perfect gift for him, or perhaps an action camera from GoPro.
  • Does he need anything? There’s bound to be something he needs, but make sure it’s something he actually wants as well. There’s no way he’s going to get excited about socks or hankies, but maybe he needs (or desperately wants) a new PS3/Xbox game or a barbecue.

Think about who you’re buying for and what he likes and soon you should be able to find a gift to suit.
