Sometimes the best gifts in life really are free. If you are trying to figure out what to give the man in your life who has everything, or maybe just want to discover the ideal gift that teaches you really care without having to spend an arm and a leg, think about these five ideas that won't set you back too far financially.
What man doesn't love a great massage, or even just a nice back rub? Provide him 30 minutes of your energy, and create a special soothing environment with mood music and candles when you massage his sore muscles. If that isn't an option you might consider a gift certificate to a Spa where he can get the ultimate relaxation treatment along with a professional massage.
There aren't many men who can resist the lure of excellent homemade cookies, and if they're fresh out of the oven it's even better. Chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, peanut butter, cookies could be the way to many a man's heart! Tie on a gift tag that reads something similar to, "You're the cookies to my milk," to add a romantic (and corny) little twist.
Whether you're a writer, an artist, a photographer and have any other creative skills or talents, consider putting these to use to create a very personal and thoughtful gift. Consider making a beautiful painting, writing a poem, or maybe you're into scrapbooking, creating a photo collage constitutes a wonderful gift.
If the man in your lifetime is busy working throughout the week and spends most of the weekend on household chores, consider gifting him having a day, or weekend, to himself to complete anything he wants. Which includes lounging around around the couch all day and watching sports or playing video games - allow him to to whatever it is he loves to his heart's content without being bothered. This is a gift he'll appreciate, and don't forget for years.
Tickets to the game
If you don't love sports, and he does, consider getting him tickets to the game. If he does not have anyone else to go with, use the other ticket and try to join in the enjoyment while rooting his favorite team on. If he has a friend or colleague who would appreciate going more than you might, contemplate it an extra special gift allowing him spend time out with the people.
