What to Get A Guy for His Birthday

A lot of women wonder what to get a guy for his birthday, and with good reason. Guys are notoriously difficult to shop for, but luckily they aren't terribly hard to please.

Unless he's had something specific in mind for some time, then you should be able to find something that will make him smile. These are just a few ideas to get you thinking, but they cover a wide range of items guys like to get as a gift.

>>> Something practical...Guys are all about utility, meaning they like to have things they can actually use and make their lives easier. It may help if you know what kind of routine your guy has on a daily basis, but finding something he can actually use day in and day out will win you huge points in his mind. For example, let's say he likes to go to the gym. Well, if he's like most guys, he probably has most of the things he needs, right?

Not exactly. Sure he might have the workout gloves, the gym shorts, the drink bottle, but all you have to do is think a little outside the box. How about a new gym bag? Or, if you really want to get creative, you could make a gym gift box for his birthday, with protein powder, energy bars, new gym socks, and anything else you can think of!

>>> Something thoughtful...While they may not show it, guys like to be thought of as well, and if you can show that you know him enough to pick out a thoughtful gift he will certainly take notice. To do this, you have to think of his interests and hobbies, and then try to think of something that might relate to those things that will really put a smile on his face.

If he's a big sports guy, maybe a signed piece of memorabilia will do. Or, if he's a big movie buff, you could always check online for a cool artifact from one of his favorite films. Thinking of something thoughtful requires, well, thought! So if you want to go this route, try to write out his interests and some ideas that may relate to them.

>>> Something for both of you...There are many times where a gift for him can really be a gift for you, and in that sense it's really a mutual gift, but it'll certainly make him happy if done the right way. Only you know what your guy likes in the bedroom, so you can always add a little something there if you think he will enjoy it. Or, on a less spicy note, you can come up with some ideas for items you might share together, like a new TV or sound system. Guys appreciate ideas like these because you both get something out of it!

These are just a few basic ideas on what to get a guy for his birthday, but you will need to apply them to your guy to really hit the nail on the head. If you're lucky enough, you can find something that fits each of these criteria! Or better yet send him some cute texts to start the passion flowing!
