Do Guys Like Getting Gifts (9 Tips For Gifting A Guy)

by Sonya Schwartz

Many women ask the question, ‘Do guys like getting gifts?’. The answer is guys love receiving gifts as much as you do. They feel that excitement and gratitude, especially when they receive gifts from a woman they love. 

Remember that men in their masculine elements see worth in different things than women. So, what you give and how you give matters a lot.

Getting gifts for men can be very challenging. Still, most men are very simple. So, it is preferable you know his interest before getting him a gift because choosing what to get him can be very confusing. And don't forget it is not all about what you get but the way you present it and your act of love.

You may love the act of giving gifts, or you are just obliged to give your man a gift because of the season. Whatever your reason for considering giving him, make your gift a worthy one because a good gift can bless a person beyond your imagination. 

Also, it can make a significant impact on their hearts for the longest time. So, here are 9 things to know before getting gifts for a guy.

9 Things To Know Before Getting A Guy A Gift

1. The age factor

This is one thing you should know and consider before getting a guy a gift. It is of utmost importance that you consider the age of the person you are buying a gift before purchasing it. 

Imagine purchasing an adult gift for a child. The child will be very disappointed if you are getting someone a gift and check a store in line with the person's age-grade. 

Your boyfriend is a full-grown man, and he has his choice of color, style, and stuff he loves. That's why you should look at him very well before getting him a gift. He will feel delighted when you get him a gift that he loves because then he will know that you understand and know him.

2. Don't buy appliances

Households and other appliances serve the public or others more than serving a person. So, do not buy a general gift even if he will benefit from it as well, forfeit it. Most appliances are general things that should be acknowledged, not something you buy and then wrap as a gift.

Men love receiving gifts so be deliberate and personal about the kind of gift you are giving since you are a couple. And it's creepy to give a gift that will be more useful to you and the house than to the man you are gifting. Once your man sees that you put effort, and thoughts into making the gift a special one, he will cherish it.

3. As the giver, choose a gift your man will like

Sometimes, when planning on giving out gifts, we consider ourselves too much instead of thinking of the receiver. It is good to choose something you like, but it is best to choose his taste over yours. 

You may not like the color black, but you can get him something black just because you know he wants it. Look at the things he likes or wears. Even if there is a particular thing you hate and he likes it, consider it when choosing a gift. Let his preference be a priority when you are getting him a gift.

4. Purchase personal stuff

Look out for things that are personal to him and get those. Getting a gift for a guy can be a tight budget. However, it is nice to give him something he needs, not cutting down on quality.

Better still; if he had asked for something in particular, get him that exact thing he asked for instead of cracking your head thinking about what to get for him. But the fact remains that if you can't afford the quality he wants, get him something else. When getting our loved ones gifts, no matter how small it is they always appreciate it

5. It's not about the price

Although most guys' related gifts are expensive, a gift worth to a man is not how much you have spent to purchase that gift. You can get something cheap and simple, and he will appreciate it more than anything else. Even if you buy something expensive, he might not value it. 

So, choosing a gift for your boyfriend or husband should not only be price centered. When you give gifts to your partner, never take it as an opportunity to flaunt your ability to spend in the relationship. 

They don't see that, and the masculine gender is not looking out for how much you can spend except he is only interested in your riches. A high priced gift will not move a guy who is confident in taking responsibility for his girlfriend or wife. 

6. Get a high technology gift for a high technology person

Please do not give your partner a gift he won't use or appreciate. Girl, you should know your man. Some guys don't exactly like to read so why should you buy him a high tech gift that requires him to read a whole complex handbook to know how to use it.

He may never finish reading the book, so he may as well dump your gift at the side until whenever. So, get something that he can easily connect to. Remember that if a gift will be more useful in serving others than your partner, then there's no point in getting it.

7. Buy fewer items

This may sound counter-intuitive in practice but think about it this way; if I was to buy you twenty shirts, does it make each piece more special? You guys are together already, and you don't need to overdo anything to prove anything point in your relationship by buying too much at once. 

Consider quality more than quantity. Give a few items that will be special and remembered: the more, the less valuable. When you give so many things at a time they all end up meaning nothing, your gifting should be targeted at making an impact, not shocking your boyfriend or husband and getting a "wow, this is crazy!" reaction. 

Don't get me wrong here; surprise gifts can be memorable, wowing your guy is also excellent, but the motive behind the giving is more important than that given. Ever heard 'less is more'? That saying is correct and valid. Do not put yourself in the position to look like a desperate woman who wants to prove her point.

8. What does he consider valuable?

If you want to get your man a gift, it's essential to know the kind of things he considers valuable. As men, there are some gifts they naturally intuitively appreciate and some they don't—although the best gift you can give your guy is your presence, joy, and positive radiance. 

You may have made some embarrassing mistakes buying gifts for your boyfriend. I've been in that position too and trust me I know how stressful it feels not knowing what to get for your man at a particular time. So, remember to think about the things he considers valuable, things he places worth on, and get him those.

9. Let your gift be useful or sentimental

The most common gift a girl can give out to her partner is a t-shirt, belts, perfume, wallet, or shorts so those can be your first consideration. 

Nowadays, most of these gifts are considered less standard and random, so he may not appreciate them. It's okay if you want to get him any of these, but the truth is that men love purposeful gifts, don't just add yours to the plenty he already has for the sake of buying a gift. A lot of men are not interested in jingly, pointless gifts. 

It has to be something that serves a clear-cut purpose in his life. It should be something that lights up his soul. Getting him a sentimental gift is cute and dependent on your relationship situation and the level of assurance you have in that relationship. 

Examples of sentimental gifts include a key ring, a couple of jokes, something personal you both share, a mug with his photo, a handwritten letter, etc. Even a mere kind gesture could be considered a gift, and it goes a long way. No doubt, it's an emotional way to give and express how you feel for your man.
