5 cool gift ideas for men perfect for any occasion

Men are sometimes very hard to read and understand. Since most of them are egotistical and quite secretive, this makes it hard to know what to gift them. Be it on their birthday or for a promotion, you can never be sure what would be perfect for them. To understand what is perfect for them, you have to think like a man. Despite being so secretive, there’s always something they love doing or watching.

At Luckies, we have a wide variety of items for everyone to enjoy. Whether you want something for your son or daughter or spouse or parent, we have it all! Most men will tell you that they don’t even require you to give them any gifts but deep down they’d want to receive affection. Let’s take a look at five gifts you can give any man in your life and be sure to please them with it. These gifts are perfect in their own right.

Scratch Maps

These framed maps are perfect for any member of the family especially the men. We offer a wide range of scratch maps from the Deluxe XL to custom maps. Since most men are huge fans of sports, therefore, we can customize a sports-themed map for them. Be it a global map or a national map, all this is possible at Luckies Shop. Scratch Maps are fun for men because they will encourage them to travel more and they can even use them to brag about their escapades all over the world. Rest assured that a scratch map is ideal for a man.

Cool birthday present ideas for guys that are hard to buy for

There are few activities one can engage in more daunting and fraught with danger than trying to buy a teenager a cool birthday present.

Not only are they going to have to open it in front of all their teenage friends, but they are also going to feign casual disinterest no matter what it is. Unless you’re able to obtain gold circle seats for Yung Whoever, or agree their present is for you to pay their phone bill for the next 10 years. “cheers” is probably the most emotional response you’re getting.

We know this, because we used to be teenagers!

Classic birthday present ideas under £20

If you’re really stuck, our CapitaLIST Perry Piggy Bank, he perfect way to let them save their own money for whatever it is they want. Write your birthday message on the side with chalk, and they can replace that with whatever it is they’re saving for. That way maybe you can get away with giving them the 20 quid after all. Tell their parents you’re trying to teach them the value of saving money, and you’re golden all round.

Hopefully that makes it all a little scary, but we guess the only way to know how they really feel about your present is to check their tweets afterwards to see if they’ve called you any names.

Instead choose one of these 5 great housewarming gift ideas and you’ll be guest of honour.
