Buying the perfect birthday present, Christmas present or anniversary present can be difficult when you want to surprise the man in your life with something special. You might not want to ask him what he wants given that this would completely ruin the surprise. At the same time, guessing what he wants can prove to be an extremely difficult task.

There are certain things all men use that you think could make the perfect gift because you know your man will need it. However, this kind of gift – though perfect for some – can be far from exciting for others. Maybe you’ve checked the deodorant and cologne cabinet to check out what his favourite brands are. But if he’s fully stocked up, this gift idea may not be great, as he might be well aware it was only chosen based on what you could deduce he will use.

At the same time, you don’t want to be that person who buys their man a nice tie or funny new pair of socks. Most of the time, you can predict your man will act impressed, but deep down, he’ll mainly feel let down. Sometimes men come across as having few needs and therefore keeping it simple should suffice. However, for the reasons mentioned above, this isn’t always the case. But don’t worry, buying a gift for the man in your life can be made much simpler if you think outside the box.

Below, we’ll discuss just a few ideas that will no doubt impress your man way more than he ever expected from a gift from his loved one.

Alcohol

Most of us like to indulge in an alcoholic beverage of two from time to time and you may well now have got used to seeing your man cooped on the sofa with a six pack of his favourite lagers.

However, he probably loves to indulge in some of the more expensive alcoholic beverages which he avoids simply to save money. When you’re looking for a gift for him, splashing out on his favourite whiskey may be something he never expected and is sure to put a smile on his face, especially after he’s drunk it.
