Sometimes the best gifts in life really are free. Trying to figure out what to give the man in your life who seems to have everything can be daunting. Perhaps you just want to find the ideal gift that shows you really care without spending an arm and a leg. Consider these five ideas that won’t set you back financially.
What man doesn’t love a good massage, or a nice back rub? Give him 30 minutes of your time, and create a special soothing environment with mood music and candles. Massage his sore muscles, because you care. If that isn’t an option, you might consider a gift certificate to a Spa. There, he can get the ultimate relaxation treatment and a professional massage.
There are only a few men who can resist the lure of good homemade cookies. If they’re fresh out of the oven it’s even better, because chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, peanut butter, cookies may be the way to many a man’s heart! Tie on a gift tag that reads something like, “You’re the cookies to my milk,” to add a romantic (and corny) little twist.
Whether you’re a writer, an artist, a photographer or you have any other creative skills or talents, consider putting them to use to make a very personal and thoughtful gift. Make a beautiful painting, writing a poem, or if you’re into scrapbooking, creating a photo collage would make a wonderful gift.
If the man in your life is busy working during the week and spends a large part of the weekend on household chores, consider gifting him with a day. Make it a weekend just to himself, to do anything he wants. That includes lounging around on the couch all day and watching sports or playing video games. Let him do whatever it is he loves to his heart’s content without being bothered. That’s a gift he’ll appreciate, and remember for years.
Tickets to the game
Don’t love sports, but he does? Consider getting him tickets to the game. Accompany him, use the other ticket and try to join in the fun while rooting his favorite team on. You might consider gifting the ticket to a friend or colleague who would appreciate going more than you might. A guy’s night out will be an extra special gift by letting him spend some time out with the guys.
