How to Choose the Perfect Gift For Your Man's Birthday

List: Posted: 10/20/11

Most men have simple tastes.  Call it humility, minimalism, or if you’re his girlfriend, unsophisticated, it doesn’t take much to make him happy.  When his birthday rolls, around there are a million different gifts you can choose from that he will enjoy.  If you really want to make his day special or are having trouble deciding what to get him, here are the best gift ideas for your man’s birthday.


5. Anything Related to Vehicles


If you can afford a car, motorcycle, boat, or airplane then by all means get him one.  However, the average girlfriend probably doesn’t have that kind of cash lying around.  Instead, get him anything related to vehicles.  Get him some new rims or clutch pedals.  Find out his dream car and get a mini-model of it.  If he’s into customizing his vehicle, try to find out what he’s working on next and get the part shipped to his place.  Or you can get creative and call a car race track to see if you can get him to test drive a sports car.


4. Tools


Men by nature are tinkerers, fixers, and aspiring problem solvers.  Get him a nice tool kit to play around with.  You can kill two birds with one stone by buying him the materials to build a particular item that you need: a doghouse, a shed, or a cabinet.  Bat your eyelashes and hint that he can 'test out' his new tools by fixing that leaky toilet or broken garage door.


3. Gadgets

Any new technology is sure to excite your man.  You can get him a video game console like Playstation 3 or XBox 360, or the latest plasma 3D TV.  You can get him a smartphone if he’s been using an old cellphone, or install a Garmin GPS in his car to help with directions.


There are millions of cool gadgets to choose from at the electronics store, with new products coming out every day.  Even old school creative gadgets like a bottle-opener-belt is sure to pique his interest and make him smile.


2. Gift Cards


Some men prefer surprise gifts, but the majority like buying things they know they will like.  Getting him a gift card to his favorite store is one of the most functional gifts you can give him for his birthday.  Gift Cards that involve food are always a plus.  You can even choose the restaurant that you want him to take you to.  Other great gift cards are movie theaters, home improvement stores and electronics store.


1. Free Nookie


Hands down the best gift I’ve ever received was a ‘naughty’ coupon book my girlfriend made me.  Without getting too specific I’m sure you catch my drift.  This is an effective and inexpensive way to make your man the happiest person alive.  Make sure it is done in a playful manner.  If you're not that creative, you can include different coupons like breakfast in bed, cleaning the house, night out with the guys, etc.  Get as creative as you want, but make sure to commit to your promises!
