Go-To-Gift For Men

As my husband and I age gracefully, I have realized that shopping for him is like shopping for my Father – impossible! What on earth do you get a man over 35? I put together a “go-to-gift” for your hubby or significant other. This is a perfect Father’s Day Gift or Birthday Gift for your main squeeze.

Start with an email to his four closest friends (or the guys you make him hang out with because they are married to your friends).

Invite them over for “Guy’s Night.”

Stock the fridge with  a variety of locally-brewed beer (you know – the kind that tastes bad, but guys seem to like).

Buy him one of those T-shirts that make a Dad look cool.  This one is from Nordstrom:

Order a Certified Angus Beef® Four Bone Frenched Prime Rib from Certified Steak and Seafood (men don’t need any sides).

Leave copies of The Hangover, Old School, and Reservoir Dogs on the coffee table.

Order some Beer Cupcakes from {cacao} Bakery in Chicago for dessert.

Head out the door and and meet the ladies for some drinks while leaving ESPN blaring in the background.

Voilà! You are the perfect wife.

What do you do to make your man feel special? Any ideas are more than appreciated!

    I always tell my girlfriends that a good go-to gift is a “goodie basket” full of favorite alcohol, some cigars, favorite movies, some new boxers, favorite candy and whatever else your man might love! :)
