The holiday season is here - which brings lots of fun and time with friends and family - but also the pressures of the holiday shopping season. With so much material available, you want to get the best for your husband, boyfriend or any other man in your life. But guys aren't always very receptive to what they want — you might get an "whatever" if you try to ask for it.
So that means you have to take matters into your own hands! Here we talk about some smart ways to think about the buying process and finding the right gift that they will love, as well as some gifts that could be great.
Knowing what he wants and needs
With so many deals on Black Friday and beyond, it's easy to make quick purchasing decisions. But it's just as easy to be disappointed by buyer regret when the package arrives - or when you realize it's not what you need. Here's a process you can follow to think about what he might want. Write (or type) a few ideas at each step.
- Think what he's been up to lately. Maybe he mentioned something he likes or would like. If you have the opportunity throughout the year, it's also good to write down things that come up, as they are sometimes forgotten.
- Leave a message for your friends or family to see if they have any ideas. You could surprise him with something special and meaningful - and he will surely remember it.
- Check out his closet (if you're close enough!) or check out what he's wearing. Maybe some of his clothes are a bit worn or he has some kind of item he always likes, but can you get him another one?
- What can help you feel more confident in your job or hobby? Maybe a certain outfit you know would suit him well. For example, if he recently started a new job or got a promotion, some new onesWorkwear for menIt can be a great way to give him a great gift and congratulations at the same time.
Once you've found the type of item you want to buy, you need to decide where to get it. with so manyBusinessOn Black Friday and beyond, it's easy to make quick purchasing decisions. But it's just as easy to be disappointed when the product arrives late, not as described, or not as requested.
To make sure you get what you want, you need to do your homework. Find an established ecommerce store that has a good reputation and good reviews. If it's been featured in popular media, you know it's quality. In the meantime, also make sure they have easily accessible live chat and phone/email customer service so someone will take care of you if you run into any challenges.
When it comes to clothing, you also want to be a size that suits him well. Limiting returns is important in this case as it undermines the present.
Again, figuring out your size requires you to do a little detective work. If you live together (or spend a lot of time together), look at the tags on other similar clothing or shoes to get a good idea. Now many online stores have size charts and even custom AI size finders that can show you the right size for your physique and height/weight. Just enter your estimated values and get the recommended size directly! It's best to check the website before ordering - even if it takes some effort beforehand, you'll regret it later!
