Five Awesome Gifts For Guys - Spring 2016

Hey Neighbors,

Choosing the right gift can be a nightmare, especially when you’re buying for a guy. It can be so difficult to know what they would like. Sure, you can pick up socks or a bottle of something, but it hardly shows much thought or imagination.
So whether it’s his birthday or you just feel like buying a man a present, we can help. Here are the hottest gifts for summer 2016!

If your man is a musician, then why not treat them to an addition to their pile of gadgets? Low tech but really neat, a Pick Punch allows you to make your own plectrums. Be warned, don't leave your cards lying about, they’ll soon have pick shaped holes in them! Really unique, they’re lots of fun. If he plays guitar, then what about an effects pedal? Man love gadgets and pedals are no exception. Just make sure you keep some earplugs handy!

Some guys never grow up, and most men will still start fighting over anything remote controlled. It’s proof that they are still  big kids at heart. Remote control helicopters are almost unfathomably popular with guys of all ages. You can pick them up at all different prices, but even those at around the lower end of the scale work really well. You needn’t pay more than around $30-$40 dollars for your own mini chopper! If you want to purchase a high flying gift, go to

Does your guy like to stay well groomed? You can pamper your partner and buy him some essentials. If he’s threatening to take up more room on the bathroom shelf than you already, you might want to go easy on the bottles. Why not buy him a new razor? Even if he’s got a beard he still needs one to keep it in check. And if you don’t like his new beardy look, then why not use it a (not so subtle) hint! If you’re not sure what type to buy your fella - check out

Experience days are always an appreciated gift with the wow factor. Luxury car driving days have been popular since they first appeared. If he’s mad about Maserati's or fancies a Ferrari? This could be the only (legal) way he’d ever get to drive one! Having the chance to screech around a F1 track is the sort of thing little (and not so small) boys dreams are made of!

Is you #1 a secret geek? If he loves all things vintage, and still likes gaming now and then, search no more. A retro games console is the perfect present that has a awesome quirky factor. Take him way back to his youth and let him play like a kid, but with the benefits of modern day technology. Thankfully there’s no need to spend twenty minutes waiting for a cassette game to load any more! Kids today don’t know how good they have it! Who would have thought technology would have come so far?

If you’ve got any great gift ideas for guys, then why not share them in the comments below? After all, sharing is caring!
