The Best Gifts For Your Husband That Won’t Break the Bank

I don't currently have a husband for whom to buy gifts, but I do know that among my friends "What should I get my husband for his birthday/our anniversary?" is one of those most frequently asked questions. Here's some tips from a reader on what to get that special someone in your life.

Do you know what the biggest difference between men and women are? You, of course, have the obvious things like clothing, shoe size, and appetite but what about those differences that no one ever really thinks about? Well, one of those differences is gifts. Men often times get the short end of the stick when it comes to receiving gifts but why is that? The world may never know…

This may not be a real issue in your particular family but you can’t deny the fact that it is a real issue in some families. From birthdays to Father’s Day, men just don’t have any luck in the gift department. On Mother’s Day, the kids will get up and make their mom breakfast, give her flowers, and just give her the works that entire day. For Father’s Day, the kids will get up and give him a tie that they colored in class… it’s not breakfast in bed but it will do. USA Today even recounts epic Father’s Day fails that mothers would never experience on Mother’s Day!

Well, the time has come for your husband to get better gifts this year for whatever occasion may come. It’s time to ditch the ties and rethink gift options for him. If your husband goes all out for you, there’s no reason why you can’t go all out for him, and the thing is, it doesn’t have to be an overly expensive gift for him to love it! If your husband is like a lot of husbands, it doesn’t take much to make them happy…

Men are very simple and if you give them a gift that looks like you put a little bit of effort into it, they will cherish you forever! Take a look at the top five best gifts to give your husband that won’t break the bank.

Fishing Supplies

Maybe your husband is an outdoorsy man who loves any and everything related to being outdoors but one of his most favorite past times is going fishing. If you know that he loves to go fishing, getting him a gift for any occasion or holiday would be a no-brainer. You can get him fishing hooks for live bait, tackle kits, or a rod and reel combo!

The gift options are limitless when it comes to fishing. You could even surprise him with a fishing trip and once you all get to the lake, river, or stream you’re taking him to, you can then pull out all of his new fishing gear and watch his face light up! He doesn’t ask for much but being able to see that smile on his face will be priceless.

Personalized Grilling Apron

These days, everyone loves anything that’s personalized. From baby onesies to welcome mats, if it has your name on it or has a personal saying on it, people love it and will definitely buy it! So, traditionally speaking, it has been shown throughout the years that men are supposed to go out to work while the women stay at home and take care of the home, right? Yes. Well, these days, you’re starting to see more and more men in the kitchen!

Men will have full-time jobs and then come home and still cook. For the men who don’t get in the kitchen too often but are self-proclaimed “grill masters,” getting him a grilling apron will be the perfect gift that shows him that he truly is the grill master of his home and also that his food is actually delicious! There is actually a lot of sites that have personalizing options for gifts like this, you just have to do your research. And although this particular gift is personalized, you can still get this gift done at a reasonable price!

Whiskey Stones

If your husband enjoys a nice cold glass of whiskey every now and then, why not enhance his whiskey experience with whiskey stones. Whiskey stones add class and sophistication to your whiskey drinking experience. The whole point of whiskey stones is to make your drink is nice and cold without watering it down like ice would.

Now, if your husband is a whiskey connoisseur, then you know he probably has certain ways he prefers to drink it… it just depends on what kind of mood he’s in. Some people like to drink their whiskey chilled, some like it neat, and some like it with just the slightest splash of water. But if your husband enjoys his whiskey cold without it being watery, then whiskey stones is the best gift you can give him!
