It’s not too difficult to find an applicable present for a woman, and if you can’t work out what to purchase for her, she will plainly tell you!
A lot of men, on the other hand, won’t give you one single bit of help. Try it, go and ask a man what he would like for his birthday or Christmas. Much more often than not, the response you will get will be along the lines of, “Anything you choose will be fine.” Or another classic and even worse, “I don’t want anything!”
Getting it Right
When you go shopping for a man, try to resist the urge to purchase that necktie and opt for something a little bit more exotic. Be aware that men and women are certainly different types of shopping animals.
- A woman will go and buy something unusual and maybe even exotic for herself, but for the fellow, shopping is a much more practical pursuit.
There are things out there that men would like, but will probably never go on to purchase. It’s your job to find out what those things are at great places like ghpa.com.au in Australia.
Rugged and Memorable
Every fellow has a little bit of Indiana Jones/Crocodile Dundee about himself and extraordinary accoutrements made of dead animal parts nearly always brings forth a smile!
- While the normal type of wallet is somewhat too plain, a wallet made of snakeskin, crocodile, or something similar should be considered.
One more ordinary day to day item is the common keychain. Normally boring, right? Not when it has a real snake’s head with it! You may also consider boars’ tusks, whale teeth, or various other types of animal bones which he will treasure and keep forever.
If the man in your life enjoys a beer, go over to an import shop and grab a six-pack made up of a beer from six different foreign countries.
- Or if you have the space and no qualms about him taking over and moving into the basement, purchase a beer-making kit and let him brew his very own!
There is an old saying which goes, that “a woman can never have too many pairs of shoes!” And the same generally goes for men and pocketknives. If he doesn’t already own a Swiss army knife, get one for him.
- If he indeed does have one, find a good knife with an unusual handle. (Carved bone handles are a superb choice).
There are some basic simple rules that you must follow when you are shopping for man presents.
1 – Don’t waste any time or your breath for that matter (!), even asking him what he would like, because he just won’t tell you. 2 2 – And if he does actually tell you, it might not be what he truly wants. (And men say that women are difficult to understand!)
Think “peculiar but useful,” and you are there. Remember that when shopping, and you can be sure to find the ideal gift.
