Gifts Men Really Don't Want
Gift giving is an art form. It has to be a not too expensive and just what I wants. What gifts men don't want. Figuring out what men really don't want for fathers day or holidays can seem hard but they probobly give hints and ideas through the year. Be in tune and write them down. Set it aside and add to it as you go when the time comes. I bet he will get something he really wants.
What Gifts Men Really Don't Want
And What Men Really Don't Want for Fathers Day
By: Kristen Houghton
Author | Kristen Houghton
I know better than to get my husband clothes for any holiday. This is especially true around Fathers Day. The commercials showing a smiling man who is absolutely thrilled to pieces with some non-descript sport shirt is definitely not the scenario I'll see with the man I know. He'd get that slight smile on his face, say, "hey, this is nice," and then hide it away in the land of lost clothes along with those sandals I made him buy on vacation two years ago.
Men Don't WantTies, shirts, shorts, and God forbid, underwear, are not exactly wonderful gifts to receive. They're boring practical. I know this. But what do the dad, husband, brother, and uncle in your life really and truly want?
I don't know. If I did, I'd be out there shopping.
My own husband, while acknowledging that it is nice to have days that remember parents, still calls these days, "Hallmark Created Pseudo-Holidays." Good for the card companies and restaurants, but a royal pain for gift buyers. He's right.
Outside of the expensive items like tickets for sporting events, theatre, concerts, cameras, techno-equipment, watches, plasma TVs, and a vacation to baseball fantasy camp, the choices for Dads Day are not all that great. Do we have to be left with underwear, car wax, and grilling utensils? Is there nothing else?
C'mon guys! Give us a hint!
I like the feeling I get when people open a gift from me and there is a smile of genuine happiness on their faces. We all do and so the quest for a perfect gift for the men in our lives poses a major problem. And, no offense gentlemen, but you don't help us any when you say,
"Just get me anything. I'll like it." You won't like it, we'll know it, and we'll both feel awful.
Gift giving is an art form. It has to be a "not too expensive and just what I wanted" type of gift. Very few of us are that artsy. Still I keep trying to find, if not the perfect gift, then at least something that he will enjoy. Something that will bring that genuine smile to his face and will let me know that I've gotten it right. I'll keep searching for this almost perfect gift; I've still got time. I only wish that he'd give me a good hint about what he really wants.
Maybe I'll go with something a little practical and techno like a new cell phone. Nothing too expensive. No TV or elaborate texting stuff that he never really uses; just a phone with easy message retrieval and a decent camera.
I think he'll like it. At the very least it's better than buying boring underwear. He should appreciate that.

One of my favorite things about being an Internet Entrepreneur is that I can literally wake up in the morning with an idea for a new product and have it become a reality by the afternoon. Or I can find new ways to promote an existing product. Or I can join a new affiliate program or pursue a joint venture. Every time I repeat this process I create a new stream of income to add to my existing revenue base.
