Christmas Gift Ideas for Men 2013

By Adam Smithski

For many people, coming up with gift ideas for men can be the most challenging part of preparing for Christmas, and one of the most frustrating. Whether it’s your husband, father, brother or just a friend, it can be difficult to find something which will make their Christmas special. It sometimes seems that every retailer expects all men to have a favourite football team, an obsession with golf or an unnatural interest in the working of the internal combustion engine, so if you want to deviate from these ideas it can seem almost impossible. Fortunately, the internet offers a really wide selection of options for men no matter what their interests, so you are sure to find something that will make the perfect present for even the least stereotypical male. If you need some gift ideas for men, then you aren’t alone and you should be able to find some inspiration from these suggestions.

Gigging gifts

Almost everyone has a favourite band, and the chance to have a night out for a concert is one which anyone enjoys so if you are having trouble thinking of a gift for a man you know then a pair of tickets to see someone they really like is a great idea. If you are a fan too, then you can make a night of it, but you can also send him off with a friend for a night out with a likeminded fan if you don’t share his passion.

Exclusive Art

If you are trying to find a present for a man who likes to surround himself with beautiful things, then why not choose a piece of individual artwork which will brighten up his life every day. You can choose a map of the world made from the musical scores of his favourite songs, a piece of word art which sums up your relationship with him or even a romantic gift which will give him a permanent reminder of how you feel about him. If you want a gift from everyone together, family portraits make great gift ideas for men so that they can have a reminder of the people who love them most wherever they spend the majority of their time.

A twist on the traditional

If you want to buy something fairly standard like a book or a CD, then why not try to mix things up a little and make a traditional gift into something a little more special. Combining a CD from their favourite artist with a DVD of a live performance or an autobiography charting their life can turn something which would otherwise have been a stocking-filler into a gift which is a little more special. Putting together this kind of gift can also be a great way to include everyone in the family as they all contribute an individual element meaning you could solve the conundrum of finding gift ideas for men for everyone in the family at once.

Indulge his dreams

For men who seem to have too little time to pursue their own interests, providing the opportunity to try something which they have always wanted to do can make a perfect present. If he has always wanted to learn to play an instrument, why not invest in a few lessons to give him a chance to live his dreams, or if he likes to try new things then why not consider a gift experience. There are plenty of great ideas for activity days, so he could be the first of his friends to try something exciting like Segway rallying so they will get bragging rights thrown in as well.
