Friday Top 5: Birthday Gifts for Him

by Andrea Cooley


Adam’s birthday was in November (I had to save this post ’til after the fact so I didn’t give away any of my gift ideas!). He can be a tough person to buy for. I joke that I’m easy to shop for. Jewelry, clothes, perfume, shoes, the list goes on and on! These days his wish list seems to include very expensive items, right now a Macbook Pro is at the top of his list. Unfortunately, that’s not in the budget! Instead I got him the Steve Jobs biography. He loved it! Usually he’s not a big reader, but he couldn’t put it down. I think he finished the whole thing in a week. I also made him black forest cherry cupcakes. They turned out amazing if I do say so myself!

Here are a few ideas for your hubby’s next birthday:

1. I think I had an especially hard time coming up with a birthday gift for Adam this year because last year I got him a ping pong table. He still LOVES it! Seriously, if he had his way we’d play every day! Maybe your man doesn’t want a ping pong table, but think of a game or activity you can do together. Just think of it as the gift that keeps on giving!

2. Get him a professional massage. Even guys like to be pampered!

3. Make him something. Knit a hat, crochet a scarf, paint a picture, or cook him a fabulous meal. I always think thoughtful gifts are the most special!

4. Get tickets to a show or concert he wants to see. (Are you noticing a theme? Maybe it’s because my love language is quality time, that the gifts I give tend to revolve around spending time together)

5. Buy a season of his favorite TV series. One year I got Adam Planet Earth. I don’t usually get into the Discovery Channel, but this series is pretty amazing!

What’s the best gift you’ve given your honey? It’s never too early to start thinking of ideas!

  1. For our first wedding anniversary, I was super sneaky and got Dave a mountain unicycle. I was so excited, I was telling EVERYONE so I would avoid tell him. I have a hard time keeping something that phenomenal to myself. This wouldn’t be a great gift for just anyone, but I knew he’d want it.
