People always claim that men are much harder to buy gifts for than women, and perhaps even harder to buy for are business men. These men are the high flyers of industry; they seem to have all the latest gadgets, fashions and all other imaginable potential gifts. But, I hear some of you saying, isn’t it the thought that counts? Well sure it is, but wouldn’t you rather present somebody with a gift they’ll treasure for life rather than an inanimate object which will either gather dust in the corner of the attic for years or even worse be thrown away. In this case you need to personalise your gift.
Now we all know that a busy and successful man of the world doesn’t have much space in his life for personalised mugs and coasters or placemats and goblets, so you need to really think of his day to day activities. For a man who is stuck in the office at his desk all day, why not remind him of the people he is working to look after? A personalised photo frame with a cheeky or sentimental photo featuring a photo of his family will ease the pain of being away from the home all week long. Or for the single guy why not frame a photo of him indulging in one of his favourite hobbies, for example, an image of him fishing enclosed in a frame bearing the slogan “Hang on in there!” Little quirky gifts for him such as these, will help him through the monotony of his daily workload and give him something to work towards. Personalised desk calendars are another personal yet practical gift idea he is bound to keep for at least twelve months!
For the travelling business man desk top items aren’t always the wisest choice. That’s where personalised cufflinks come into play. Every businessman worth his salt needs to look the part and no shirt looks sharp without a set of first class cufflinks. Suits may look smart but let’s face it, wearing the same thing day in and day out can be pretty tiresome, so allow their personality to shine through their cufflinks; a small yet noticeable outlet.
For a football fan the personalised cufflinks come into their own with a range of styles from footballs, mini jerseys, and even a red and yellow card set! For the connoisseur why not indulge his whim with a mini cognac bottle and glass set of cufflinks? If you browse online you cannot fail to find a pair of cufflinks suited to your recipient, the virtual world is your oyster!
The easiest way to think of the right gifts for him is to sit back and consider their lifestyle and interests. Try and purchase a gift that they can incorporate into their daily living, be it practical, personal or both! The more use a person can get from a gift the more they will appreciate it. Even a gift to remind them of life outside the workplace can bring a smile to your recipients face and that in itself is the best reward to any loved one.
