10 great gifts for the men in your life

and loads of inspiration for shopping for him

Shopping for the man in your life is a challenge. How do you read someone’s mind to know what men want when they just don’t tell you? You don’t need to develop your sixth sense to know what is going to make him smile. All you need is a little inspiration to avoid the emptiness left by a bad gift.

And how do you get inspired?

When gift giving works well, it seems like you have the gift of ESP. But there’s no mind reading here; you just know what they are going to love.

Begin by exploring what your guy loves to do when he has freetime. What does he say he wishes he could do and what hobbies do you both share? Start by filling in these thoughts and let your imagination run.

Don’t have an imagination?

It’s all good. Below we’ve got 10 ideas that will get you inspired and start thinking about what your man is going to love. We’ve simplified things a bit, so dig into these suggestions to discover a great gift to present to him.
