I often find that purchasing a thoughtful gift for the men in my life can be quite a challenge! My guys tend to not need or want very much of anything. Of course, when I surprise them with that special something that they never knew they needed, it’s as if I’ve hit the nail right on the head!
My father-in-law’s birthday is next week and thus the yearly challenge begins to find that perfect gift. While perusing Shindig Paperie this week, I found a handful of gifts perfect for those special men in my life. Today I thought I’d share a few of my finds along with a handful of gifting tips. Enjoy!
1. Bring the outdoors in: Whether it’s an outdoorsy-themed calendar or print, your men are sure to enjoy a piece that inspires them to get outside while they’re working at the office.
2. Encourage those handwritten letters: Long live snail mail with a well-made journal and letterpress stationery! Personalize a box of stationery for those old school men in your life and pair it with a beautiful fountain pen. You’ll get bonus points if you throw in a nice cigar!
3. Men like to smell good, too: The secret’s out. Men like a good smelling candle, too. Grab a masculine-scented candle from Shindig & pair it with a fun box of matches. They’re sure to appreciate the delicious scent while enjoying a relaxing Saturday afternoon at home.
4. Wrap it up!: The men in your life will take note of a thoughtful gift when it’s wrapped well. Grab a geometric printed wrap and pair it with a sandy colored ribbon. Add a personal card and gift your treasures with love!
