Great Gifts Ideas for Men

Great Gifts Ideas for Men

With Father’s day and my dad’s birthday coming up in June, I am again sitting and wondering what gifts I can get for the two most important men in my life.

I get stuck every single birthday, Father’s Day, Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Anniversary. Buying for women is just so easy. If you get stuck just get something that smells divine and makes bubbles in the bath… with men it is not so easy.

Do you also have this problem?

So I did some online research and I asked a lot of men what they would love as gifts. This is what I have come up with, I hope it makes your life a lot easier when it comes to buying gifts for the important men in your life.

Here is my list of great gifts ideas for men:

Bear Grylls Goodies

Have you watched any of the Bear Grylls series? He is a survival expert and it is quite an eye-opener to watch him on is survival missions.

I’ve seen him swimming naked in icy rivers and then running around rubbing snow all over his naked body. I’ve watched him eat live snakes, scorpions and spiders… I’ve even seen him eat maggots off a rotting carcass and drinking his own pee to survive!

Anyway enough about Bear Grylls and onto his goodies. His gear is very much sought after and here is his prized item:

Bear Grylls Survival Tool

We designed this multi-tool pack for survival in the most extreme conditions. Sheathed in a rubberized, locking carrying case that attaches to a belt or backpack strap, it includes a 12 component multi-tool, flashlight and fire starter rod. Every tool in the kit is outfitted with durable rubber handles for easy gripping, even with gloved hands. All of the multi-tool features are locking – needle nose pliers, wire cutters, wood saw, pierce, scissors, partially serrated blade and more. This is the all-weather workhorse of the Bear Grylls line.

Any tools or equipment will go down well. We are always needing our men to fix or mend something for us, so let’s make it nice and easy for them to do just that. I must say that I also love fixing things myself and DIY so I love all the tools kits and equipment too!

Any tool kit is not only a nice gift, but it is something practical that will always be used.

Cigars and Sets

This is something my hubby can only dream of now since we both quit smoking… but if he was still smoking this gift would have made his year!

Speaking to a number of men, even non-smokers, they said they loved the occasional good quality cigar. This is something very special that will be appreciated for a long time.

Crafted exclusively in the Dominican Republic, every Macanudo Cafe cigar is made with the finest Connecticut Shade wrapper, a flavorful blend of Dominican tobaccos and a select binder grown in the rich St. Andres Tuxtla Valley of Mexico. And to assure you of the same smoothness in cigar after cigar, the makers of Macanudo use only the most thoroughly aged tobaccos.

Rated very highly around the world, this is a mild cigar with a lot of character. Always smooth, always mild, with a flavor profile smacking of vanilla, bread and sweet spice. A perfect morning smoke and a perfect starter cigar. Being invidually vacuum tube-packed ensures lasting freshness and flavour.

This is the perfect gift set for a cigar aficionado or someone that’s interested in the world of cigars and all the sophistication that comes with it. This set has everything you need to immediately start enjoying your cigars right out the box. The mahogany humidor can accomodate 8 large cigars or 20-25 smaller ones. It’s made from quality materials and has a felt underside. Drying accessory included too. Separately these items would cost over R1300.

  • 2x Macanudo Cafe Crystal Cigars
