If he tells you not to get him anything, don’t. Men tend to naturally speak with their actions more than their words, and if they push the envelope that they don’t want anything, it could be for a few reasons. They might feel awkward or weird accepting gifts, or if you’re living off a joint income, it could just be for monetary reasons. There are old cliches of women telling their men not to get them anything for a birthday or event, and then getting upset when they don’t get them anything. This idea comes to people’s heads, but in all our experience, it’s actually a pretty clear instruction.
There’s a limited number of gifts you can do here, and since it’s such a meaningful experience, jokes should probably be left off the table. Getting a nice cigar humidor, or a top-shelf bottle of their favorite liquor are meaningful gifts that tell them to kick back and celebrate the occasion. A thoughtful gift mixed with your presence is exactly what they need.

I have been wanting to buy Madewell's classic leather tote bag for a while now, so I did not hesitate to purchase it when they came out with a zip top version of the bag this year. The classic tote is big enough to hold all my stuff for work, stylish enough for me to use on weekends when I don't have a lot in it, and the zip top makes it perfect for traveling on weekend trips with (or using as a carry-on while flying). The bag comes in a few different colors. I have it in English Saddle, which is of course my personal fave.

Skydiving - Yeah, we joked about it, but it’s a thrilling experience. If he’s an adrenaline junky, the guy who just can’t get enough of life in the fast lane, this will make his head spin. These are also systematic with parachuting and hang gliding, though those usually require a more remote location. Falling safely out of the sky throws caution to the wind, while still playing it safe and enjoying the time of your life.

"My son gifted this to me for my birthday. I love to work with my hands, and this was perfect for… more me. I have to admit, I was intimidated with a fear of messing it up. I knew my son would want to see the finished work. After staring at the pieces on my bench for a couple weeks, I finally decided, it’s now or never! Every step carefully processed. I knew there were no 'do overs.' Slow and deliberate steps, but once I got started it was an obsession. It came out great." - Ken less
Buying one gift is great, two gifts are fine, but buying too many gifts will diminish the value of each additional gift you give to them, rendering the sentiment essentially useless. More thought packed into a single gift beats half-a-dozen smaller ones. It’s not about physical size or the price tag. Understandable occasions are when it’s more than one item to complete a single gift; you wouldn’t buy him just dress pants, would you? You’d opt for a two or three-piece suit. Getting multiple unrelated gifts gives off the idea that you were in a frenzy, and while you threw money at the sentiment, that you were more panicked about getting gifts than making sure they were truly meaningful.

If you’re going for big gifts or small (gifts for 1 year old boys), you’re going to want to hit late February for President’s Day sales. While these tend to apply to major appliances and mattresses, furniture and things of the sort, that could be the perfect thing. If he’s a gamer, and you’re going for a stellar top-budget gift, you could always check out gaming desks or gaming chairs. The trick to utilizing these sales is to see what their doorbuster items are. These are generally things they use to get people in the door (even virtually), and then sell them on great deals on larger items. Some brands even sacrifice making any profit off these items by dropping them so low, just to get you on their site. You’ll also see sales like this come around in late May for Memorial Day sales.
