Do you have a hard time buying gifts for the Men in your life? My friends are always telling me how hard it is to buy gifts for their Husbands, Brothers or Fathers. I do not have this problem. My Husband in particular is SO easy for me to buy for. As a matter of fact, I have the next several Christmas, Birthday and Valentine's Day gifts covered. Guys are easy to buy for. Here is the simple formula that I recommend to my friends to create the perfect guy gift.
1. Buy one large item that you know they want, need or will love.
Does your Brother need a tool set? Does your Dad want tickets to a sports game? Would your Husband love an innovative unique watch?
My Husband fell into the later category for his Birthday this year. I have seen these amazing Jord Watches around the internet and I knew that he would love to have one. When they contacted me to do a review, it was fate. The Ebony and Rosewood Dover watch immediately caught my attention when I looked at the Jord watches. The contrast of the ebony with the beautiful rosewood really makes this unique watch stand out.
*are made with aged hardwoods
*are precision crafted with CNC machining, laser engraving, and hand finishing
*have quality movement in a diverse selection: automatic, mechanical, tourbillon, and quartz movements.
*are shock resistant, accurate and built for durability
*feature premium sapphire crystal glass to provide high clarity and scratch resistance
This Ebony and Rosewood Dover watch has a self-winding automatic movement. This means that it does not have a watch battery! It also has a time reserve of 36 hours. If you wear it every day, or at least every other day, it will keep accurate time. The watch face is completely see through with the sapphire glass on each side. It is really neat to watch it work. It also comes in a high quality wooden box that makes it ready to gift.
2. Add in a movie, video game, or book that he wants.
My Husband absolutely loved the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. I have probably seen it about a dozen times already including twice in theaters. This was a natural choice. I typically buy him a video game if there is one that he wants. Books are also a great option. If the Man in question isn't a book reader, then consider magazines, comic books or even a picture and fact book on one of his favorite topics (trains, boats, cars, tools, horses, model airplanes, etc.).
3. Add in a consumable treat.
This can be beer, liquor, wine, a specialty soda or drink, candy bars, nuts, cheese, a large steak, or even chocolate covered bacon. Think of things that he loves to consume, but doesn't necessarily want to spend the money on. My Husband is easy. In spite of the fact that he drinks Jim Beam regularly, he still really loves it as a gift. I have also purchased Chimay Reserve, his favorite (and expensive) Belgian Beer for him. I bought him a heart shaped ribeye steak for Valentine's Day.
So, there you have it. My EASY three step process to a perfect gift for the Man in your life. You could even use this process for the females in your life too! If you are having a hard time coming up with a gift for the first step you could search online for gift ideas. You could also take a shopping trip to your local hardware store and make mental notes (or sneaky cell phone notes) of what he picks up and wants. Or, you could order him a gorgeous Jord Watch. They will even size it for you!
My Husband LOVED his gift! He has been wearing his Jord Watch every single day. I keep catching him peeking at it...you know, like us Ladies peak constantly at our new jewelry. He said that he loves how light it is on his wrist. It is comfortable and it definitely has a cool factor. All of his friends have now seen it and want one too. I think any Man (or Woman! They have female watches too!) would love a Jord Watch. My gift was a huge success. Please feel free to share your gift ideas!
