gifts for a man
Anniversaries are special occasions, so the gift should be appropriate. When choosing a present for a male hero of the day, it is important to take into account not only his age, tastes and habits, but also his lifestyle, level of financial situation, the degree of closeness of the donor and the recipient.
We prepare an original gift with our own hands
With your own hands for the hero of the day, you can prepare a lot of gifts. What is important — they will turn out to be individual, they will be able to reflect the character of the birthday person as accurately as possible and will warm his heart with pleasant memories for a long time.
Of the gifts made by hand, the most obvious is a congratulatory wall newspaper. It can be made in the form of postcards, memoirs, newspapers. Well, if it is a colorful “product”, supplemented by photographs, wishes from friends and relatives.
A similar idea is a homemade photo album. Each page and spread is a certain stage in the life of the hero of the day. If you do not have such extensive information about a man’s life from birth to the moment of the anniversary, you can make an album in the style of “one day in the life of the hero of the day”, the story of his vacation trip, and so on.
If the beloved man has an anniversary, you can make a box or a beautiful jar with romantic notes “100 reasons for my love”. As an option — a checkbook of desires. Today, such gifts can be bought ready-made, but an unusual gift made with one’s own hand will turn out to be much more valuable and unique.
You can make an original watch for the hero of the day. To do this, put time intervals on the wall of the dial.
You can designate them as “Time to dream”, “Time to act!” and so on.
When talking about homemade gifts for a man, culinary masterpieces are among the first to come to mind. You can bake a pie, a cake with your own hands, especially if these are your signature dishes. As an option — completely cover the festive table. A creative option is homemade fortune cookies. Of course, predictions should be kind and positive.
An original gift will be a concert in honor of the hero of the day. Congratulations, vocal and dance numbers will cheer you up. It is better to film the entire event on video so that the hero of the occasion can, if desired, review the holiday.
The cost and value of the gift depends on several factors:
- relation degree.
The more impressive the figure of the anniversary, the more significant the gift should be. As for the degree of kinship, close people can give more personal and expensive gifts. If are talking about friends, colleagues, subordinates, then their presents should not be too personal (this is indecent, it can offend the hero of the day) and too high in price (especially if the birthday person and the donor are at different levels of the social ladder).
For young men up to 30–35 years old, on the day of the anniversary, you can present something that will emphasize his active nature and far-reaching prospects in professional and personal development. In most cases, this is the age when a man actively builds a career, matures psychologically, but he is still characterized by youthful minimalism and enthusiasm.
If the means and interests of the hero of the day allow, you can present something for an active pastime — a motorcycle, a jet ski, a motor boat. For thrill-seekers — parachute jump, helicopter flight, airplane. The main thing is not to make a surprise out of such a gift — you must be sure that the hero of the day is dreaming or at least not against skydiving.
For men aged 35–55 years, such “reckless” gifts will be out of place. As a rule, during these years, a man’s life is quite stable, but stressful — work and family require considerable effort, the day is scheduled by the hour. If at the same time a man earns ll and can afford a lot himself, surprising him with a gift is not an easy task.
A travel voucher can be an expensive and pleasant present. It will not be easy for a person to cancel his plans in connection with the trip, so it is better to choose ekend tours. They can be both in another country, and within the homeland of the hero of the day
. In addition, such a 2–3‑day trip will be more profitable in terms of money.
A certificate for a course of massage, spa treatments or bath programs is also a good gift. The main thing is an expensive institution with highly qualified specialists. Many spa complexes offer a ekend getaway with an overnight stay, meals, sauna and massage, horseback riding. For a man whose life takes place in a frantic urban rhythm, such a vacation will be a real “reboot”.
At this age, men take care of themselves, so an electric razor and a trimmer will also be an excellent present for an anniversary. If the birthday boy has a model haircut, then perhaps a hair dryer will not interfere with him. Hover, you should give it only if you are sure that such a gift is necessary. Otherwise, it will cause surprise and be useless.
If a male leader is to be congratulated, then a massage chair for the office can be attributed to more expensive gift options. It will help to relax or, on the contrary, cheer up right at the worwelace. As a more affordable and ergonomic option — a mobile foot massager.
A respectable office chair for the boss-anniversary is another gift option that will demonstrate the respect of the team and will be useful for the recipient. The main thing is to choose comfortable models with adjustable elements, it is better if the chair has an impressive back and is upholstered in leather.
An office chair is not the only expensive gift for a manager. You can decorate his office with a table fountain, a waterfall, a water mill, as ll as a floor or hanging aquarium. As you know, the sound and sight of flowing water soothe and relax. And the appearance of the office thanks to such details only wins, becoming more respectable and interesting.
For an elderly hero of the day over 50–55 years old, it is better to give presents that are associated with relaxation, health, and comfort.
Of the more expensive options — this is the same ekend vacation in the country, a ticket to a sanatorium, a rocking chair, a home massager.
Smartphones, tablets, laptops or certificates to an electronics store will be appropriate at almost any age. An elderly close relative can be presented with household appliances — a TV, a microwave oven, a slow cooker, a washing machine and a dishwasher. If you don’t know what to buy, a gift certificate to a household appliance store will help out again.
Almost any man is pleased to receive alcohol as a gift. Let it be elite varieties of drinks, and even better — a mini-bar. Outwardly, the latter can represent a picture, a globe or a box, but in fact it is a bar with collectible or simply elite alcohol. A cigar lover can be presented with expensive high-quality cigars and a guillotine, a birthday man will also be pleased with a personalized engraved lighter, an expensive ashtray.
It is believed that you can not give a watch, but this is nothing more than superstition. Expensive watches of a famous brand are a gift for all time. Whether it will be a classic model, a sports fitness tracker, or a “fancy” version with many functions — decide taking into account the lifestyle and hobbies of the hero of the day.
Almost all men are hunters at heart, so a certificate for shooting shooting, paintball and similar types of recreation will be very appropriate. It’s easy to please a picnic lover with a new tent, sleeping bag, knife set or camp kitchen set.
If a man has a hobby, then you can choose gifts, taking into account the type of his favorite pastime:
- sportsman give an annual subscription to the pool or your favorite fitness club, a certificate to a company store of sports equipment and shoes;
- car enthusiast - a gift card to a car service, car covers, a cooler bag, a vacuum cleaner for the car interior;
- avid traveler and fisherman - spinning, sets of hooks and lures, a boat, equipment for winter fishing;
- gardener and gardener — barbecue, hammock, garden swing, lamps and country figurines.
A colleague or manager — an office worker — would be appropriate to be presented with a branded pen in a case with an engraving, stationery sets in a special table stand, paperight, leather accessories such as a business card holder, briefcase, tablet case.
For men over 50, as already mentioned, you can give gifts for health, self-care.
Hover, medicines, means for measuring blood sugar, pressure and first-aid kits do not belong to this group of gifts.
They are not customary to give, especially for an anniversary.
The hero of the day can be presented with a warm blanket made of natural materials or a terry bathrobe. If a person loves to read, then it is a good idea to give collector’s editions of his favorite books.
Another idea is a composition (for example, a ship) of sets and alcohol.
At this age, kinship and family ties are especially valued, so you can order several photo frames and insert a photo of the whole family into them. If the birthday boy lives in a spacious apartment or house, then his portrait on canvas in an expensive frame will be appropriate. Various souvenirs for the connoisseur are not just small presents, but a gift chosen especially for him. The main thing is that the gift should be valuable, worthwhile. As a rule, these are various antique gizmos. You can also make a genealogical tree of the family.
Perhaps, in the soul, every man is not indifferent to apons, so such an anniversary gift will become memorable and symbolic. Moreover, few people buy such things for themselves. A set of knives or a saber with a wish will become the pride of the birthday man.
Even the most ordinary gift can be given in such a way that it will be remembered by the hero of the day for many years. One of these options is a jar of healing air. To do this, an empty jar (preferably a 3‑liter one) should be rolled up and an appropriate label should be made (for example, “Healing air for a dear hero of the day”). On the inside of the lid, you can apply a drop of coniferous essential oil, then after opening the air will be “colored” with a subtle pleasant aroma of needles.
Before giving a present (do not show ahead of time), you need to say congratulations.
Mention in it that your gift will allow the birthday boy to stay strong and young longer, attract the attention of the opposite sex and breathe life in full. After these words solemnly present the present.
You can give a car enthusiast a “kit” for his four-wheeled friend. Accompany each gift with comic poems or congratulations in prose. A round loaf can symbolize a wheel — hand it over with the words that at the right time the hero of the day should always have a “reserve” at hand. The steering wheel is a steering wheel, accompany it with parting words that the hero of the day firmly and confidently hold on to the steering wheel of the car. Fuels and lubricants are nothing more than a bottle of vegetable oil and vodka.
Similar gifts can be prepared on other topics. For example, give a bath lover a basin, a bath cap, a broom. Congratulators at the presentation of each item can talk about the different ways to use bath accessories.
A medal, a crown, comic diplomas — this is how you can tell the rest of the guests about the achievements of the hero of the day.
If you are looking for a gift for a person who has everything, then you can give a piece of the Moon and Mars. Today there are specialized shops that sell land from other planets. Naturally, the buyer receives the necessary supporting documents and certificates. At first glance, the gift is strange and incomprehensible, but lovers of originality will appreciate it. When giving a gift, do not forget to tell the birthday person about the uniqueness of your gift and compare it with the uniqueness of the hero of the day.
When preparing a comic congratulation, it is important to understand that everyone has a different sense of humor.
In most cases, such jokes are an addition to the main gift. Agree, a person who came to congratulate a relative or friend on their 50th birthday with a can of air looks at least stupid.
You should be more careful with the order of artists — clowns, performers of frank dances and so on. Think how awkward the hero of the day and his family members will look and feel if you order strippers for the holiday.
Design and presentation ideas
Even the most inexpensive and rather traditional gift can be made original and memorable. For an anniversary, it would be appropriate to present expensive alcohol, but, instead of factory labels, stick a label with congratulations for the hero of the day, his photo, and so on. You can make separate brochures with “composition”, “rules of use” and so on. The main thing is to approach the compilation of inscriptions and manuals with imagination and soul.
One of the ideas for decorating and presenting gifts that the hero of the day will like, regardless of his age, is to arrange a quest. The gift needs to be hidden in a certain place, and the birthday person needs to be given various tasks-tips that will allow them to find the gift. It’s great if you arrange a themed event — turn the search for a gift into a mission, choose the appropriate design and costumes for other participants.
An anniversary is a special holiday, so it is appropriate and even accepted etiquette to complement a gift with a bouquet.
An exception is if a man is an ardent opponent of bouquets for men, then innocent flors can offend him. In all other cases, choose concise small compositions. Traditionally, carnations, callas, orchids, bamboo, delphinium are considered “male”. The shape of such a bouquet is vertical or triangular. Preference should be given not to pastels, but to bright and saturated colors. Naturally, the packaging should be minimalistic, without bows, butterflies and pink ribbons.
