Holiday Gift Guide

Everyone knows that women love to shop, after all there are so many lovely things to buy, like shoes bags and things for the home. Any of the above also make great gifts for other women, so finding them things to buy is never an issue. But what about buying gifts for guys? This problem is the proverbial thorn in the side of even the most ardent shopper.


You may have noticed that guys are not often excited by a cute pair of shoes or an article of clothing. Below are a few pointers that will help you understand what kind of stuff guys really like to receive as gifts based on a few personality types.


Gadgets:

Guys love gadgets and want to know how stuff works, they love to have the right tool for the job and when they get a new “toy” it will keep them busy for hours. A good example would be our best selling gadget, the Solio Solar Charger which uses the sun’s power to charge a cell phone ipod or virtually any electronic device.


Quality Gifts:

Some older Men are more interested in quality than anything else, which is why you see so many older men driving expensive cars. I guess when you get to a certain age you appreciate the finer things in life. We have a range of executive gifts, and one of our most popular is Bag Kaku a wooden briefcase / laptop bag which is handmade from natural cedar in Japan.


Fun Gifts:

If something is fun he will keep coming back to it again and again. We have found some really fun gifts like the Shocking Roulette which is a party game where four people put their fingers in the finger slots. You start the lights that spin like a wheel. Wherever the Light stops that person gets a shock.


Corporate Gifts:

We sell lots of high quality business type gifts like business card cases, but what has surprised us is that many corporations are buying their staff fun gifts like the Marshmallow Shooter which shoots marshmallows 30 feet, or the Zero Blaster which shoots smoke rings.

I think the main thing to remember when buying a holiday gift is that Men are really boys at heart. If it’s fun, cool, good quality and a gadget, you are on to a winner.
