  45. Hazel Collins

    i have to agree that it is really hard to choose what to give to other people specially if it’s a guy. It always giving me a hard time and really stressful. This process is agonizing and even more challenging as you’re trying to determine what is the appropriate gift you should give them. You should also consider factors like interests, lifestyle and a lot more. If you want you can also give unique and one of a kind gifts, The goal of giving unique presents like the NASCAR driving is to create a memorable and lasting memory.

  46. Gabrielle Williams

    Another great article from Urbanette! When you’re with your man for quite some time and you have been together for a number of anniversaries, birthdays and holidays, gift ideas are “big problems.” Thanks for sharing these! Now I’m off to planning that exotic driving experience for him! But I wonder, when is the perfect time for this?!

  47. Oh wow! It’s really hard to get a gift for a man who has everything! But I like the idea of giving him that “exotic driving experience.” I just have to arrange my sched because I’d like to be there personally when he experience this gift!

  48. Very good! In time for the holiday shopping! I honestly think this article is not just for men… Like the chocolate gift sets, I’m going to get some for my girlfriends!

    And yeah, the key is knowing and being aware of “his” interests!

  49. Innovative ideas!!! It’s really hard to get something for my man simply because I want to see that “surprised” look on his face when I give a gift. I’d like to try give him that “sex bath bombs” and I’m really curious about his reaction… mmmmm… 😉

    I know how hard it is to find a gift for a guy. If you think that we girls are picky when choosing or buying things, you are absolutely wrong because guys are also choosy. But if you already know what he likes or his interest, then it the task will be a bit easier for you. My fiance’s into gadget or techie you may call him, that’s why whenever i’m choosing him presents it’s what we both love like bluetooth speakers, hard drives and etc. Don’t stress yourself and give him what you also like because he will surely appreciate it. 🙂

    • Courtney Watson

      I agree! Being together for some time will help you become aware of his interests and likes. You’ll find out what simple things will make him happy. I’m a believer of “if your man truly loves you, he will appreciate even the littlest thing you give.” 😉

  52. Birthdays, anniversaries, father’s day, and even for a “just because”, finding the perfect gift for husbands has always been a struggle for some. Hands up for this article, totally giving wives out there a lot of ideas. I probably won’t have to worry looking for gifts for my guy friends as well, in the next coming months, or even years 😀

  53. These gifts are creative and useful. This list will definitely be helpful!

  54. My husband isn't as much of a chocolate fan as me, but he definitely likes his gadgets. He's been pestering me to get him a tablet for some time now, so perhaps I can finally shut him up about it!

  55. Jen Spillane

    Wow! I did not know that Driving Experiences existed. What a great idea! I always have such a hard time buying for men. This article will definitely come in handy.

  56. WOW! This definitely is going to help me out. I never know what to get my boyfriends or even my male family members. In my eyes they always seem to have everything they could ever want. Downfall is when you have a boyfriend who works out all the time he refuses to have any sweets. 🙁

  57. Jen Shivettes

    Mmmm I love the chocolate gift idea because I can share it!  And I can’t imagine any guy who wouldn’t love the car experience.  Thanks for giving me gift ideas for my hard-to-buy-for man.

  58. Those MarieBelle chocolate are SO CUTE! I'm going to get them for my mom 🙂
