Your Guide to Finding Unique Gifts for Men

Forget ties, wallets, and socks. Sure, guys need those things, but unique gifts for men can't be beat when it comes to special occasions for husbands, boyfriends, brothers, dads, and more. If it's the thought that counts, then thinking outside the ordinary will mean the world to him. Here's some inspiration. 

1

Appeal to his sense of humor

There's nothing funny about a mug - unless it's a mug with a joke on it. Socks? Nothing to chuckle at. Super silly socks? Now those are cute. If your guy has an exceptional sense of humor, go the extra mile. A custom stuffed animal modeled after your beau is downright hilarious!

2

Help him start a collection

Collecting is a fun, lifelong hobby, so kick-start one you know your guy will be happy to continue, whether it's rare coins, historical sculptures, or, fine, even quirky neck ties!

3

Find things he never knew he wanted

Does dad even know a beer mug with a built-in bottle-opener exists? Does your chocolate- and bacon-loving boyfriend know there are snacks that combine both of his favorite snacks? Dig around for unique gifts for men that will make your guy say, "Who even thought of this?!"

4

Customize it

What's more unique than a tee-shirt, a mouse pad, or a toiletries case emblazoned with your husband's name? Scratch that: Make it his nickname. Or gift him with a bag or a laptop case emblazoned with a picture of your pet or a set of golf balls with your children's faces on them.

5

Go vintage

Know a guy with a taste for old-timey trinkets. Deck out his desk with an old-fashioned phone or letter opener. Decorate his bookcase with vintage bookends or an antique book.

6

Give gifts that look like other things

Cufflinks that appear to be a pair of pennies. A desktop catchall that looks like a toolbox. A pizza cutter that looks like a bicycle. The options are endless - and ultra unique.

7

Go green

No, not the color. Gift dad with something made of recycle or upcycled materials, something that's biodegradable, or something that's otherwise beneficial to the environment.
