Are you still searching for that perfect gift for your husband?
Giving gifts can be stressful, especially when the gifts are for the love of your life. We all want our gifts to put a smile on their face and show them how much we love them, but when it comes to what the gift actually is, we aren’t so confident.
If you want to come up with a great gift idea for your husband, ask yourself a few simple questions. It’ll help you get out of that gift-giving rut in no time.
Start with simple questions like, ‘What are my husband’s hobbies?’, ‘What skills has he been trying to improve lately?’, and ‘What does he enjoy doing in his down time?’
Once you answer those, you can start getting into less obvious questions, such as ‘Does my husband need anything fixed or replaced?’, ‘Has he been stressed out over anything lately?’, and ‘What are his dreams and goals for the future?’
You know your husband better than anyone else, so taking just a few minutes to really think about the person your husband is can open up a whole slew of new gift ideas. Think about who your husband used to be, who he is, and who he wants to be. Think about the things he always says he wants to do.
If you’re still stuck after considering all that, take a look at the list of gift ideas below. They may be just the suggestions you need to find that perfect ‘I love you’ gift.
1) Tickets to a Special Game, Concert, or Show
The ultimate gift for any avid fan is tickets to see their favorite team, artist, or performer in person. Going to a live event is the perfect opportunity for a fun, romantic outing that the two of you can enjoy together. It’s also the perfect opportunity to create memories that will last a lifetime.
If you know that your husband has friends he’d want to take along, make sure you ask them ahead of time if they’ll be free to go. If they’re interested, you can always ask them to pay for their own tickets if things are getting too pricey.
To get the most out of the event, make sure to take plenty of pictures!
2) A Unique Dining Experience
The classic dinner date never goes out of style, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t get a little repetitive after a while. Still, if your husband is a foodie, getting him a reservation for a new dining experience that you two can do together can be an amazingly thoughtful and fun gift.
Simply do some online searching for “unique dining experiences in my area.” Lounges, clubs, amusement parks, bars, themed restaurants, and more are all great places to look for memorable meals. Finding an interesting new dining locale is all it takes to turn the basic dinner date into the perfect gift.
If your husband has a favorite cuisine, make sure that the dining spot you choose specializes in it!
3) A Do-It-Yourself Beer Kit
For the husband who’s a self-proclaimed ale addict, a do-it-yourself beer making kit could be a fun gift. Luckily, great quality beer making kits are somewhat inexpensive.
The company Brooklyn BrewShop has an impressive variety of beer making kits that range from a classic pale ale to an interesting jalapeño flavored beer. The kits come with everything your husband will need to create his own brew — no extra purchases required. Brooklyn BrewShop offers beer kit refills, too, so there’ll be nothing that can keep your husband away from his new passion.
4) Collectible Memorabilia
If your husband is still a kid at heart, memorabilia from his favorite movies, games, TV shows, and teams will be just the thing to brighten up his day. Amazing t-shirts, posters, figurines, books, and other collectibles can be found for just about any big entertainment franchise out there, so finding a great gift in this category shouldn’t be too hard.
A simple google search will take you a long way. You can also visit comic book stores or game stores in your neighborhood. For more retro and vintage memorabilia, try Ebay.
5) A Relationship Scrapbook
If you’re someone who prefers to say “I love you” in a straightforward way, try making a scrapbook that showcases you and your husband’s relationship right from the beginning. Now that photographs are almost always taken digitally, physical photo albums ad scrapbooks are becoming rarer and rarer — making them a more unique gift!
If making a scrapbook by hand doesn’t seem practical, there are great digital scrapbook and photo album applications out there like Project Life and Pic Collage. A digital picture frame can also be a great way to get the most out of your digital photographs.
Showing your husband that your memories with him are not, and will never be, forgotten is one of the greatest gifts you can give him.
6) Haberdashery Goodies
Ties, socks, hats, cuff links, wallets, belts, and other accessories are just the thing to get for the husband who’s hard to shop for. Glasses, watches, cologne, and rings can be the perfect finishing touches to any outfit, no matter how dressed up or down.
High-quality, functional accessories are not only necessities, but are great tools for raising confidence and self-image. So many great gifts fall under the category of ‘accessories’ that there’s bound to be something your husband would enjoy.
Giving your husband an accessory from his favorite brand is a plus.
High-quality shirts, pants, suits, and shoes also make for great gifts. However, make sure that the accessory or article of clothing you buy for your husband is something that he would happily wear; don’t just buy the thing you want to see him in. There’s a difference!
