Spending more doesn’t make the gift more valuable; in fact, it can actually spark more of an argument than just ignoring the event, and not getting him a gift at all. If you’re the SO, you might spark a feeling of indebtedness from the gift recipient. Even in our progressive world, there are still issues where men will feel inadequate based on their spouse earning more than them, providing more “value” to the family (however they like to measure it), and so on. Getting a gift that’s expensive or out of an acceptable price range, could send a bad message. Men are simple, and enjoy simple gifts; study what you believe they’ll want, but don’t overthink it and psych yourself out.


Okay, this might seem silly, but it really is a great gift. Adult coloring books are just like regular coloring books, but they have more complex designs that are more appropriate for adults. They are a wonderful way to relax and decompress from a long or stressful day. They can add a little fun to her day in a simple and easy way and finished pictures range from being beautiful to hilarious depending on which adult coloring book you choose for her.

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.
Brewery Tour and Tasting - One of our personal favorites. This gives him a chance to taste a private reserve, or meet the brewers and talk about the process. If you know they’re big on discovering new brews and batches, you’re about to give them the thrill of a lifetime. Find a local brewery, and discover their tasting room and private tours. It may cost you a nice chunk of change, but it’s an experience that they can’t just walk through the door and get.
"I received this as birthday gift. It was an awesome experience opening up. A crowd gathered as… more everyone wanted to know what was in the Man Crate!!

I swear by these yoga pants. Whether I’m lounging on the couch, taking a barre class, or sweating profusely in spin class, these yoga pants are game-changers. No camel toe. No sweating through the pants. No itching from discomfort. These yogas are definitely worth the price tag. I promise.

I own them, and they are great too.

"My sister gave me this for Christmas. The packaging and the content where fun, though I am still… more not sure if she was trying to kill me or just test my manhood.

"I ordered a crate for my dad's birthday and he loved it! After opening, everyone started looking at… more the Man Crates site to see what crates they would want to have or send to others. I knew I had to check out Man Crates again for Father's day. I thought to myself 'Whats the Father's day equivalent to Mother's day flowers?' and this is it! I cannot wait for it to be delivered to my dad." - Jill less
