10 Great Gift Ideas For Your Manly Man

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Oh yes, it’s time to talk about one of the most notoriously hard-to-shop-for species: the male. Your mom, your sister, your best girlfriends—all of those are a mere cakewalk during gift-buying season compared to the sheer panic that is buying your boyfriend the perfect present. To help you take on mission impossible, we’ve enlisted gift-giver extraordinaire Dana Holmes from Gifts.com to pick great gifts that even the manliest of men will love!

Natural Wood Watch

A terrific combination of stylish meets practical is this Natural Wooden Watch ($119.95 on gifts.com). Pick this up for your man and watch his style grade jump a few points, instantly. The classic wristwatch has been re-thought in this time piece. Made of wood, chemical-free and lightweight, this is something he’ll want to wear every day. Plus, for each watch sold, the manufacturer will plant one tree. Brown is my favorite, but this watch also comes in black, two-tone, beige and army brown.

    Looking at manly gifts, I came to #10. It’s a “Lifeproof Iphone case”. Personally, as a man, I offended that this would make this list. This is not a manly gift. It also indicates that this list was not made by someone exuding masculinity. There are 20 gifts I could name before anything with a phone would make my list.

    I’ve been browsing on-line more than three hours nowadays, but I by no means found any interesting article like yours. It’s lovely price enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content as you did, the net will probably be much more useful than ever before.

    Love the ideas. The Art of Shaving also has a classic shave for $35 that makes a nice splurge for Valentine’s Day.

    Well, these are some really manly gifts:) I completely agree with you, I myself literally dread buying gifts for men. We women know what we want, but our beloved partners sometimes act as if they were from another planet. The worst thing is that they pretend not giving a damn about what they get, but then you notice that they are a bit disappointed about the gift and you realize that they are actually pickier than you:-)
    It also depends on your boyfriend’s/husband’s personality and age. Besides, I think the length of relationship is important too. I mean, a luxury watch with an inscription (like I’ve just bought for my husband) given to a guy I’ve been together for a couple of months would be really weird, wouldn’t it? I guess, it’s a bit easier when you have enough money. If you don’t, you just have to be creative.
    P.S. Receiving gifts is great, giving them even greater, but having a family, friends and/or somebody who will always support you and help you is incomparably more important. A cliché everyone should bear in mind at least during the holidays.
