Men are notoriously hard to buy for when it comes to gifts. Women have a seemingly infinite list of things they want-from clothes and jewelry, to home décor and electronics. Men on the other hand usually only need one thing: beer.
It is difficult buying your husband an anniversary present that he will appreciate for years to come, but don’t fret! Here are some tips about how you can find the perfect gift for him this year!
Make a list of what your husband likes
Do you know what your husband’s favorite color is? Or his favorite sport, or hobby? All of these might be good starting points if you’re struggling to come up with a gift idea.
For instance, maybe he loves golf-in that case, an electric driver could make for a great present! If he likes cars and watches then how about tickets to the next Formula One Race at Austin Speedway in November?
If he likes crafting then how about a nice new set of leatherworking tools, or some leatherworking materials like sandpaper and dye. If he likes poker then maybe you could buy him a brand new deck of cards and learn how to play!
If your husband is a nut for history then why not look into the National Park Pass? These passes allow entrance to over 2,000 locations across America from Mesa Verde in Colorado to Pilgrim Hall in Massachusetts. It’s also valid for up to three guests at each location that’s great if you want somewhere new to get away together this Autumn (or Summer)!
For people that are fans of outdoor activities, quality gear can always come in handy. A survival kit or a pocket knife like the ones found at deejo.com can prove to be perfect presents. You can also customize them so that your husband gets a completely unique set of pocket knives. Just make sure that the present doesn’t stand out and that it is aligned with his current style.
Consider his hobbies and interests
You should first determine what your husband’s hobbies and interests are. These could include his favorite sports team, books, ski trips, cooking, etc. Once you know what he likes to do, look for something that’s related to that interest. For example, if he enjoys skiing go to the North Face website or REI for some ideas.
There are hundreds of items that could be tailored perfectly to your husband’s specific hobby or interest, but it is important that you know what that is before searching for an anniversary gift. This will ensure you find the best possible gift without wasting any time hunting down ideas and products.
If he likes sports consider tickets to a game or memorabilia
If your husband has a favorite team, you can usually find items in local stores related to those teams such as shirts, hats, mugs, and other unique pieces of merchandise. You can also look into purchasing tickets to see his favorite team play at their stadium if they’re playing nearby during your anniversary month. These kinds of presents offer more than one thing for your husband to enjoy, and they’re especially useful if you attend the game with him. Tickets also make for a great gift idea because your husband will not only have something to remember the night of the game, but he’ll have pieces of memorabilia or souvenirs from it as well.
Think about the things that make him happy or proud of himself
One way that you can gift your husband something special for his anniversary is to create a scrapbook of all of his life’s most memorable moments. Fill the scrapbook with photos and mementos of special memories, such as tickets to the concert he has been wanting to see, or pictures from your shared vacation.
Alternatively, you can create a customized gift that shows him how much he means to you-for example, a framed piece of art with one of his favorite hobbies illustrated in it or a personalized ornament. The last idea is for you and your husband to get together with an artist to make something-maybe get in touch with your family friend who plays guitar and has always wanted someone to learn from them?
After considering his interests, hobbies and what makes him happy as well as your own preferences for a gift, you should be able to think of an anniversary present that will bring both joys. If none of these ideas seem like the right fit or if you have any other questions about buying a memorable present on this special day, feel free to do more research online! There is a wealth of information available online, and you can be sure that bloggers from all over the internet have lots of great ideas to share with you.
