Great Gifts for Men with free color printable

Buying for men can be tricky.  With Father’s Day right around the corner the pressure is on to find that perfect, thoughtful, gift.  Here are the  categories I use.  Over the years I’ve learned that as long as I stay within these categories I’m usually good.

~ Handmade gifts.  When my son was young this was a popular category.  Ideas here include artwork, coupon book full of hugs, decorated boxes.

~ Electronic Gifts.  Ideas in this category include an iPad, a Kindle,  Nook,  Powerbeats by Dr. Dre Clip-On Earbud Headphones, bluetooth earphones, or chrome cast type earbuds

~ Clothes.  This is my “go-to” category.  You can rarely go wrong here.

~ Fitness gadgets.  This includes a bike computer or a GPS watch.  This category also includes golf equipment (of course!)

~ Memory-Makers.  Items in this category include concert tickets, movie or bowling gift certificates.

~Cologne.  I’m not sure how to label this category.  poloYou know…cologne, mens facial do-dads like a men’s Clarisonic.

~ Car Gadgets.  Sun Visor, license plate holder, weather tech floor mats.

~ Sports Memorabilia.  Helmets, Tshirts, yadda, yadda, yadda.  The list here goes on and on and on.patriots helmet

~ Weird Stuff.  This category includes things he’d never buy himself like a bow tie, a walking stick (a cool one engraved with love), or a plane ticket to see his brother.  These things, of course, aren’t “weird” they’re just outside the box.  I keep a list on my phone throughout the year of these things as I think of them.

Whether the man you’re shopping for is young or old there’s something in these categories that will make him smile.
