5 Unique gift ideas for the man in your life

Ben’s 34th birthday is coming up at the end of this month and it’s got me thinking about unique gift shopping for him.  Men can feel much harder to buy for, but with a bit of imagination I think they can actually be quite easy.   I’m sure all men would be happy with a takeaway and a beer or two, but if you’re looking for an extra special present for the man in your life, here are my suggestions:

5 Unique gift ideas for the man in your life personalised number plates fro

Personalised car number plate

This has got to be one of the most unique gifts I can think of for any car loving man, a personalised number plate for his car!  With prices from as little as £40 at Speedy Reg, it can be a really affordable gift.  It’s also such a brilliant idea for newlyweds too or a business vehicle!  The possibilities are endless.  They even have a Game of Thrones number plates section if your man is a hard core fan!

Zip wire adventure

This is exactly what we are doing for Ben’s birthday.  We’re staying a night at Chepstow Quarry in one of their luxury glamping wigwams.  We have an ensuite and our own hot tub overlooking the quarry; my kind of glamping!  We’ll be zip lining across the quarry!  It sounds thrilling!  They also have a giant swing over the quarry, drive in movie theatre and Segway experiences based at the quarry along with a restaurant and bar.

Mini drones

There’s something about men and toys with remote controls that turns them into big kids.  The latest drone craze is sure to release the kid inside them and give hours of fun!  Mini drones are widely available now, and I must admit, they actually look quite cool if you attach a camera and film the views.

Helicopter ride

I see these sorts of experiences popping up all the time on Groupon and they sound awesome!  Not only can you ride as a passenger in a helicopter and experience a sightseeing flight (often with bubbles), but you can also book a lesson for him to learn to fly the helicopter himself.  This would make an exhilarating and very memorable birthday gift for him, some even allow two passengers so you’ll get to experience it too.

Spa day

Not the first thing you think of for a man, but why not?  Me and Ben visited Thermae Bath Spa and felt like we were on holiday!  Men also love massages just as much as women do!  Lots of spas also have restaurants and bars.  Some even let you have drinks in the outdoor pools!  Book childcare and whisk him away for a luxurious day of heated pools, jacuzzis, massage, good food and beer – what’s not to like about that?  If time allows then book an overnight stay at a spa hotel and no one has to worry about driving home the same day.

  1. Great ideas as I struggle to find things to buy Mario and its his birthday next month! I love the personalised number plate idea as Mario is really into taking care of his car but I had never thought of his own plate also he loves taking time to pamper himself (he loves candles more than me!) so a spa would be a fab chance for him to have some 'me-time'! :) #brillblogposts
