His birthday. Christmas. Valentine’s Day. One of these occasions is just around the corner…again. And again, you are faced with the dilemma of what to get your favorite guy for the special occasion at hand.
Gift ideas for men can be so tough, probably because we tend to overcomplicate things. In general, men seem to like simple and useful gifts. But that seems impersonal – and maybe even strange for you as his partner to hand over a drill or a toaster to your guy, and call it a day.
So, if you want to get a thoughtful gift for your man, here are some guidelines to consider.
Something practical is always nice. He likes practical. And, so do you – but, the thought of wasting money on another instrument or sporting good that is just going to collect dust in his closet is not ideal. And, every time you’ve gone for practical in the past, that’s usually the scenario.
Something classic. A gift that stands the test of time is great for a few reasons: 1. It becomes a go-to item that gets well used, and 2. Every time he looks at it, he will think of the person who gave it to him. You.
Something he wants (and maybe doesn’t even know that he wants it until he has it). Have you ever been given a gift that is something that you would never think to purchase for yourself, but you love it and use it almost daily? What is that gift for your guy?
So, it may seem cliché, but there is a reason that a wristwatch has been such a popular gift idea for men for so long. It’s the gift that always fits the bill – it is practical, classic and he wants it. Well… maybe he doesn’t even know he wants or needs it. Yet. Then he has it. And, he begins to wonder what life was like without it. Sort of like the way he sees you.
And, if you’re going to go for that practical, classic, timeless piece we've put together a list of the best watches under 500$ for you. The beauty of selecting the perfect watch for your man from this line is that there are only three options – each unique to the time period that is it designed to represent.
The Heritage 1921, 1863 and 1959 are all styles that you really can’t go wrong with. They are all classic, elegant and versatile. Suiting pretty much any man’s personal style. And, if your guy doesn’t own a watch yet – or has forgotten about that one living in the back of his sock drawer - I can promise you that a new piece from this collection will not be overlooked. He’ll want to strap that baby on his wrist with every outfit. Every day.
There you go! Finding that perfect gift for your guy wasn’t that complicated after all. His watch is now his new favorite thing. And, it is for him. From you. With love.
