Whether you’re pressed for time, slammed with work, or just plain forgot – grabbing a quality last-minute gift for a man can be a true challenge. Thankfully, there are a wealth of options that make picking out a speedy purchase quick, easy, and stress free.
So, what choices do you have when it comes to grabbing a great last-minute present and what should you think about before pulling the trigger on your purchase?
What options do I have?
Googling “gifts for men” can instantly send you spiraling in a blind panic as you struggle to find the option that’s right for your man. As a rule, the three classic options include;
Picking out a great bottle of whiskey or solid wine is a fantastic way to provide a great gift that goes down easy. Splashing out within your budget can be a great choice as, while we may all enjoy a drink, we’re often reluctant or intimidated to expand our range or try a bottle that’s really fancy. Grabbing an option that’s in their wheelhouse but something new is a great, reliable option.
Picking out a few additional treats is a great way to add value to a fantastic pack. These can be as simple as cheeses, tapenades, jams, or more. A reliable choice would be sourcing out locally made foods from quality brands. If your local stores are still open and not experiencing disruption, asking for a steer can get you some great gifts.
Go for a laugh
While it’s fantastic to get a brand-new coat or fancy tie, picking out the odd joke present can help tie a great gift together. These can range from joke cuff links, some anti-Trump toilet paper and more. If you know it’ll make him laugh and not break the bank, there’s no harm in picking it up as a nice extra.
What should I factor in?
Unfortunately, one of the major things to consider for a gift because of the disruption caused by Covid.
This can make shopping around to pick up the elements a practical challenge and even add an element of physical risk for yourself and others. This can be especially difficult for older individuals who may be cocooning or avoiding the risk of infection due to poor health and/or being immunocompromised.
Thankfully, more and more companies are providing gift baskets (sometimes referred to as Father’s Day Gift Hampers) that allow for the safe delivery of a range of items with ease. These gift baskets are available in a wide range of prices and combine elements of the above – allowing you to pick out a great delivery with ease and make sure it is hand-delivered with care.
What if I want a little extra ‘oomph’?
Still not sure you’ve done your special man right?
Adding a few small extras can help tie a gift together and prove to be a truly thoughtful addition. If you’re ordering a hamper online or over the phone, taking some time to review their online catalog can allow you to pick out a few choice extras. This can range from a classy, minimalist watch, some quality utensils, or a few quality books or bits and pieces to match his interests.
Choosing a personalized message and quality gift wrapping can help tie the piece together. And no matter whether you’re there in person or enjoying the delivery over Zoom, you’ve got a great package that any man will love.
