It’s easy to get gifts for women, ask any of us, but for our male counterparts, we can’t really say the same. It’s almost impossible to find a gift for our men that hasn’t been gifted before: wallets, ties, socks and heck, how many gaming devices does he need again?
We looked hard and came up with this list of awesome prezzies to get for the men of our life which we honestly don’t mind having ourselves!
Ion iCade – Arcade Cabinet for iPad
Help your man relive his childhood of arcade gaming without needing a jarful of coins! The iCade integrates your man’s iPad into an authentic, arcade-style cabinet complete with joystick and buttons! It takes less than 20 minutes to set up then connect to Bluetooth, and download the Atari Apps Atari’s Greatest Hits, which includes 100 classic Atari games that work with the iCade’s Bluetooth controls. The Ion iCade retails at $99.99 (RM317). More information here.
Beer Making Kit
Budweiser ads have made it very clear that men’s first true love will never be the ladies. Keep your men out of the pubs with this Beer Making Kit to make “kegs” of delicious home-brewed beer! The equipment is completely reusable, so the home brewer can continue to brew their favorite ales by using refill kits with their new at-home fermenter. Beer kit includes Keg fermenter, reusable bottles, brewer’s guide, instructions, beer labels and two popular recipes. Makes 4 gallons of beer. This kit goes for $59.99 (RM 185) and you can get it here.
Birkenstock Arizona Sandals
We definitely don’t give our feet the credit they deserve and while we spoil ourselves with many pairs of shoes every year, men only have erm, a pair. Or two. Possibly the most famous pair of sandals in the world are the Birkenstocks with their iconic straps and base which hug the sandal to your foot for increased security. These sandals also ensure ultimate comfort and healthy walking so equip your man with these and he’ll be able to go shopping with you for hours with no complain. The Birkenstock Arizona goes for $70.50 (RM223) and you can find them here.
Well, this gift is pretty much to your benefit as well. The Sona Anti Snore Pillow has a unique shape that promotes healthier side sleeping which results in less fatigue in the day. The best gift anyone can get is a great night’s sleep and this pillow unlike anything you’ve ever known. This pillow retails at $39.99 (RM126) here.
Lab Series Skincare for Men
If your man is a metrosexual who really takes care of his appearance (or if you’re trying to convert him into one) then here’s a skincare line specially formulated for all men out there with years of scientific research on men’s groomin needs. Get him the Clean-Shave-Treat System for simple, results-oriented skincare or the Body line, with advanced formulations which fit any lifestyle. At the very least, it should contain a cleanser and moisturiser with SPF. Products retail from $18 (RM56) onwards.
Ego too big to ask for directions everytime you’re both lost? Get him a GPS. It’s strange how men will listen to their gadgets but not their woman. Plus, you can steal it whenever you need it as well.
If you can’t figure out an item he needs (some people have everything don’t they), get the both of you a holiday instead. You don’t have to book somewhere faraway, even a weekend at a local hotel like Saujana will do you both plenty of good. The break of routine will be spontaneous and fun! You could also give him an experience to remember like go-karting, swimming with sharks, a helicopter ride or bungee jumping.
