Do You Need Help Finding Gifts for Men Who Have Everything?
I bet you’re like me when it comes to choosing gifts for the men on my list. They are really hard to figure out just the right gift.
Whether it is your dad, brother, partner, coworker or adult son men are hard to choose gifts for. It seems like if they
want something they buy it. Or if it is something for their hobby they have it already. In the rare case when a man in my life wants something for his hobby I usually need major help. I not only need him to tell me what he wants; I need a picture. I need to show the guy at the sporting goods store what it is so I don’t come home with walleye lures for the muskie fisherman. That is okay, but not very surprising to the receiver.
In an attempt to help you out I told the men in my family I wanted some help with gift ideas to share with you for the men in your life.
It should have been an easy question right? Not so much, the original answers went something like this, no response at all, “it has to fit the man you can’t just say a gift is for any man.” “Have him make a list and pick something.”
Not very helpful. Ok, all that did was confirm why men are hard to buy for.
After more conversation and asking some male friends, I got a little more help. “Something for hunting, fishing or golf that covers any man I know.” However, I must warn you 3 of the men I asked are not into hunting, fishing or golf, so sometimes that works sometimes not. Two who are into hunting & fishing have every conceivable accessory made for hunting & fishing, except for possibly a new boat and another gun. Not that I think either is necessary and both are way out of my budget, but what can I say.
Finally, the most helpful advice “Men love gadgets. Gadgets for the bathroom & kitchen are a no-brainer for a single guy.” Once we got the conversation started the guys were much more helpful. Without further ado here is the list we came up with for you:

Gadgets for the Bathroom
I must admit my first thought when this was suggested was, “Huh? What are you talking about bathroom gadgets, but I did some searching and I found some the men on your list will enjoy. These are perfect for the men who have everything because no one really needs them, but they are fun.
Probably only if he is single. I doubt the woman in his life would appreciate this.
You Can’t Go Wrong When a Gift for a Man is a Tool
- Is there a tool he wants, some kind of special saw or something for a project he is planning. That would be a unique gift for your special man. Most men have a favorite brand of tool, so pay attention to that too. You may have to get specific directions from him on this one, unless he has a buddy who can help you out.
