During special events and occasions, we’re often confused about what to give the important people in our lives—especially gifts for men. Men are infamously difficult to give gifts to. They don’t normally voice out their wants, and most even shy away from saying it. From the husband who says to get him anything to the father who claims just being there is good enough, we don’t know what to give them.
Fortunately, there’s a safe way to find the appropriate gift for them: looking at their interests. Below are some good gift ideas to give the special men in your life. While your results may vary, having an idea of what they like will definitely help. Here are a few tips to get you started.
For the Movie Critic: a Video Streaming Gift Card
Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO Max, Disney Plus, even YouTube Premium are all services that allow movie buffs to enjoy a wide variety of movies and series. Everyone nowadays has an account, and we all have our favorite shows. Why not give your loved ones a gift card for their preferred video streaming service? This way, both of you can continue enjoying your favorite series, perhaps even watch together, and have awesome bonding moments.
For the Techie: Single Board Computers
Building your own personal computer is a relatively trendy hobby nowadays. The catch is it can be expensive and very use-case-specific. From building an extreme gaming rig to the ultimate productivity machine, the desktop building is notoriously expensive. However, there’s another option: single-board computers.
For your tech-minded loved ones, a single board computer is a great way to let them express their technical wizardry. Single-board computers are low-powered and low-cost computer boards that allow tinkerers to experiment and try out different things. Even if the one you’re giving it to isn’t a seasoned tech veteran, there are beginner-friendly kits that can help them learn and appreciate the field of computers more.
