Making desperate attempts to find an appropriate gift for him?
Whatever you do, just don't give him flowers. It may be said that flowers are ok while speaking of fathers, grandfathers, an elderly colleague celebrating jubilee, or smoothing over his boring stay in hospital, otherwise the reaction can be unpredictable.
Much more than women, men prefer practical and useful gifts. If he is a passionate fisher or hunter, then you'll hit the nail on the head with fantastic fishing tackle or a hunting bag for game. If he has no crazy hobby, you may always have an emergency variant of a drill and a set of screwdrivers to make a man feel himself a master of a house, without whom the whole place will be ruined in a few days. These gifts will make his excitement indescribable, and you'll have a chance to become the best woman in the world.
In search of gift ideas for him we may turn to his office life. Office gift will be suitable for a colleague or chief. Among these presents are: a watch, a leather notebook, a wallet, a strict (or a funny one if you give it to a close friend) tie, cuff links, etc. This choice shows your respect and creates an expression. By the way, you can make a switch from a tie on a pair of socks or a handkerchief.
Men have affection for their PC. Use it and give him hard or software as a gift (in case you have a good consultant). PC-game will do as well, if you are ready to lose your man in the parallel reality for a while.
Thinking of a gift for a man, ladies especially should mind that men don't share their own love for all those nice cozy things like toys, candles and spa-shower gels. Still he is a MAN!
