If you are lucky enough to have a man in your life, you probably want to go out of your way to make sure that he knows just how precious he is to you. It might be a partner, your son, or even your father, and you might be celebrating a birthday or anniversary, or simply want to surprise him. And, while you can’t go wrong with the tried and trusted gifts like tickets to Wrestlemania or a new video game, you might be on the hunt for something a little bit different for this particular occasion. Here are four ways that you can surprise the man in your life.
- Cologne subscription box
A cologne subscription box is a win-win situation for everyone: your partner can feel clean and fresh and have a pleasant smell that you can enjoy when you get close. A subscription box is a great way to try new scents before purchasing an expensive full-sized bottle and can help your partner to find his signature scent, particularly if he is unsure whether he prefers woody, spicy, or aquatic colognes. He will have wide access to different scents to suit a variety of occasions, from date night to beers with the boys. Visit scentmagic.com for more information about men’s cologne subscriptions.
- Weekend away
A weekend away is a perfect way of relaxing and spending some quality time with your partner away from the humdrum routine of everyday life. There might be a destination that he has always wanted to visit, in which case now is the perfect time to tick off that bucket list trip or you might want to take a trip to a stereotypically romantic destination, like Paris or Venice, for the romantic getaway of your dreams. You could even choose to catch some rays and have a beach vacation somewhere tropical like Key West or the Caribbean.
It might be that the man in your life has a big celebration coming up, like a milestone birthday, or perhaps it is your anniversary soon. As such, you might want to consider gathering all his family and friends together for a fun party to celebrate your relationship and all his wonderful attributes. A barbecue is a great idea for a relaxed summer party, complete with chilled beers and fun tunes on the iPad. You know him best, perhaps instead he would like a more formal sit-down meal at a top restaurant with wonderful views of a city.
- Designer watch
Surprising your man with a designer watch is a great way of demonstrating how much you care. Consider his personal taste when looking for a watch. For instance, would he prefer a watch with a classic leather strap or something more hi-tech on which he can also track his fitness, such as a Fitbit? Your idea might be to gift your man a timeless piece that he can pass down the generations, in which case a classic watch style is preferable. Make your gift even more special by adding an engraving.
