A reader asked if I could do a post on Christmas gift ideas for men and I wasn’t surprised by this request. Males are so hard to buy for. Whenever I ask my brother “What would you like for Christmas?” the reply is always the same. ‘I don’t know’ or ‘money’ and sometimes something that’s too expensive, like a car. He knows I’m not Oprah and I can’t afford to buy him a car but I think he likes getting a rise out of me.
Here are my picks for affordable gift ideas for men. There’s something here for every kind of man.
Mothers can’t help buying underwear for their sons. Every year without fail my nana would buy my dad underwear for Christmas. Even after having three children of his own, I think she still felt like it was her duty as his mother to make sure he had plenty of underwear. I couldn’t pass up not putting these sexy Bonds trunks. Their is currently a 30% off sale for all underwear and free shipping on all orders Australian wide.
iTunes vouchers – For the music and game lovers, no matter how old they are they’ll appreciate an iTunes voucher as long as they own an iPhone or iPad. I asked my brother last year to get me an iTunes voucher so I could buy myself music and audiobooks. You can purchase iTunes vouchers from supermarkets, any large retailer such as Myer and Target.
For the men who refer to there car as their ‘baby’ this Supercheap Auto Meguiar’s New Car Kit – 8 Piece is the gift for them. An 8 piece set of car cleaning goodness for only $73.99. There are a variety of kits to choose from Supercheap Auto so, if your not keen on this one checkout the others on offer.
My dad is also really hard to buy for because he’s not materialistic at all. I was struggling to think of what to buy him for his birthday back in May, when a colleague suggested a subscription to a gardening magazine. I thought brilliant idea, he loves gardening and loves watching gardening shows. I bought him a 12 month subscription to the ABC Gardening Magazine. It’s so affordable and he loves receiving his monthly magazine so much that for Christmas I’m renewing his subscription. I also sent an email asking a question and received a really informative reply. Love me some good customer service.
For all the men who like to be clean shaven or you might have someone in mind who is in desperate need of a shave, I have the perfect thing. I asked someone who knows more than I do about trimmers of a brand they recommend and they said Wahl. This Li-ion Trimmer & Groomer + Detail is over $100 but it’s still at a great price of $129.95.
So readers, are you stuck on what to buy … a particular guy?
