Top Gift Ideas for Men (for Father’s Day, Birthday, Etc.)
Written by Katie Wells
What do you do for gifts when the man in your life is hard to shop for? I’ve been trying to answer that question for years, as it always seems tougher to find good gift ideas for men than it does for women.
My husband is a perfectionist who insists that anything he buys is of the utmost quality. He doesn’t like things that sit around or take up space without a purpose, so strictly sentimental gifts are out. (Though I did think of one sentimental gift that was also useful so he loved it… see below!)
He also hates being surprised, so keeping the gift a secret without him finding it is another challenge!
This post includes some of the best gifts I’ve found for my husband over the years. It also includes gifts that my many brothers-in-law have enjoyed and items on all of their wishlists. Find the complete list here.
