A Little Old Fashioned Warmth
Coins, Cars, Books, or Signatures of Famous Folks?
A person can rarely have too many of the items that they love to collect and almost everyone enjoys collecting something. If you can discover what the person on your gift list enjoys to collect then you can theme your gift around these items.
Baseball cards, old coins, toy cars, fishing lures, collector plates, collectible bobble head dolls, sports signatures, or even old baseballs are popular collectibles. If you can discover what the man that you are purchasing for collects then you have also found a perfect gift idea for him.
Keep in mind that your gift does not necessarily have to be new. Some of the best collectibles are rare, older, out of print, items. If you spend some time scouring thrift stores or coin shops you may be surprised with what you can find there.
Army surplus stores are another great store to search out collectibles in. You can find old pins, medals, collectibles, and coins for collectors of army memorabilia. Where collectibles are concerned the more unique the item the better a find it is.
Many guys still have a few remnants of their childhood tucked away in a box somewhere. A display case lets him get his favorite toys out of the box and visible for display. This display case is a great gift idea for the man who seems to have everything.
Baked Goods for that Special Man on Your Gift List?
If the man you are shopping for is single then home baked cookies, cakes, or buns, can be a wonderful gift item to receive. Baked goodies are certainly a gift which he can never receive too many of as his stock will always need replenishing. Yummy.
A very unique type of cookie to give to a single fellow is a heart shaped sugar cookie. These are quite easy to make and can be attractively decorated in a unique theme just for him. When decorated correctly, flipping the heart upside down will have these heart shape cookies looking much like a lady's bosom, or bottom.
Simply add an icing bikini top to one half of the cookies, and icing bikini bottoms or thongs to the other half, and then let his imagination fill in the rest of the picture. These cookies are as cute as a cookie can get and guaranteed to get a chuckle out of the man who you are gifting them to.
A gift basket themed to his favorite foods is also a great gift idea for the person who seems to have everything. Smoked salmon, pepperoni, or beef jerky are usually a popular food gift basket treat for a man.
Also never underestimate the joy that a gift card to his favorite coffee shop or restaurant can bring. Little luxuries are delightful and they never lose their magic.
Wrap his Gift in Creativity
Think outside the box and this saying applies ideally in the process of gift wrapping. You can add smaller gift items on the outside of the package so they are visible and turn your gift wrapping into part of the gift.
Why have the enjoyment of your gift just occur after the opening when you can get his curiosity and excitement going the minute that he first sees his gift walk in the door.
At Christmas his gift will generally be sitting under the tree for a few days before opening so if you have it wrapped intriguingly then you can have him seriously wondering about it right up till the big day arrives. Ho ho ho...
Provide Him a Touch of Creative Amusement
Theme it! Wrap His Gift up in His Favorite Hobby
If the man on your gift list enjoys word or number puzzles, then wrap him up a selection of crossword or sudoku puzzles, pencils, erasers and pens.
Use an extra large crossword puzzle, or a number of smaller crossword puzzles taped together, to create a unique gift wrapping paper. Attach a super sized pencil, or a little bag of assorted erasers to the outside of the package, and then pretty up your gift package with black and white ribbons and bows.
Be creative in your gift wrapping. Tease just a little as to what is inside to increase the anticipation and really make him want to know what is in that present. You can give him the emotions he felt back as a kid when he guessed, anticipated, and waited for his Birthday or Christmas day to come.
