Why is it so hard to buy men gifts? And what do they REALLY want?

Those might be the billion-dollar questions right there. Men are notoriously difficult to find gifts for. The answer, while, I admit, somewhat of a sweeping generalization, is twofold.

First, I think many men can be uncomfortable with the idea of receiving gifts. They view themselves as the givers, the providers. I am not saying that mindset is right (or wrong, for that matter), but it’s a perspective into the why. Couple that mentality with difficulty articulating what they want, and you’ve got a perfect storm for a hard-to-gift guy.

Second, and possibly the key reason for this challenging dynamic – when a man is passionate about something, be it a hobby, an experience, or even technology, they tend to dive deep, research it and buy it for themselves!! Fantastic for them; they get exactly what they want. But bad for us. We gift-givers are left confused, scrambling, and feeling clueless. 

What’s the Perfect Gift for Men?

A favorite gift will be something they’ll use every day and would never think to get for themselves.

What’s in and what’s out in Men’s Fashion

After we published the post last week “How To Make Gift Giving Easy” we quickly found out that you desperately want to buy for the man in your life (a gazillion of you clicked on the Adidas joggers and now only large sizes are left – but we found them here for you too just in case you still want them). Anyway, we’ve been talking about writing a post on how to update your man’s wardrobe for some time now, but the urgency just didn’t seem like it was there, so we put it off. But after last week, boom it hit us in the face. We realized what better time to talk about men’s fashion than now while you’re obviously all in the height of the gift-giving season.

Just as with women’s wardrobes,  for men, accessories are the key to updating season to season. And as powerful as accessories are in making an outfit great, they’re equally responsible for making an outfit look outdated and out of place. Generally speaking, accessories can be found at a more reasonable price point than a suit or jacket and they pack a lot of punch, so they’re ideal to give as gifts – especially for a guy that would never indulge himself.
