The Best Men's Birthday Gifts For Any Budget

Posted on: 7 January 2015

If you have ever had to shop for a birthday gift for a man, you know how difficult they can be to buy for. They generally have strong opinions about what they like, and they tend to just go out and buy whatever they need or want for themselves. However, there are great gifts that the man in your life is sure to love in every price range. With a little creativity, you can find the perfect birthday gift, no matter what your budget looks like.

Less than $25

One of the easiest gifts to give is a gift card to his favorite store or restaurant. You can tailor the amount and location to suit his taste and your budget, and if you are looking for something a bit more personal, you could accompany it with some designer cupcakes or a box of his favorite candy.

$25 to $50

If your budget is a little bigger, tools and equipment for one of his hobbies may be a great option. For a musician, a set of his favorite bass or guitar strings is a thoughtful gift, and for a man who likes to do woodworking, a small tool that he has been eyeing for a while may be a good gift. 

$50 to $100

If you have a little more money to spend, and a free weekend, a unique experience can be an awesome gift that he will not soon forget. A couple of tickets to a big game or concert is a fun gift that will help to create great memories that he will have for years to come.

Over $100

For a larger budget, specialized equipment for his hobbies can be a great gift. For example, if he really likes to golf, a new putter or driver may be a good gift, or if he is needing a fancy power tool for a woodworking project, this may be a good time to help him get it. However, be cautioned that for this type of gift, quality counts. Make sure to look for the specific brands that he likes, so that the gift will be something that he feels proud to use for years to come.

Another idea for a larger budget is a more elaborate experiential gift. If your man is a baseball fan, many teams now offer smaller season ticket flex plans that are good for 8 to 10 tickets. Sometimes, multiple tickets from the pack can be used for a single game, meaning that if he does not want to attend 10 games alone, he could bring a friend to 5 games.

No matter how much is in your budget, by using some of these ideas, you can make sure that the man in your life has an awesome birthday.
