Father’s Day might be in the rearview mirror, but that doesn’t mean gifts for men are on hold for the rest of the year. From birthdays and anniversaries to just-becauses, plenty of you will be seeking out the perfect gift for your brothers, uncles, boyfriends, and yes, even beloved fathers.
Uncovering a man’s perfect gift can be tough. No, really! Even if you know what he wants, you’ve still got sizes, fits, and color to think about—and that’s only if you know what he truly desires!
It’s a myth that women are more difficult to find gifts for. Even if men are less fussy, that means they are that much harder to really impress. So for today’s blog, the selection experts here at Bromberg’s are going to create a quick gift guide for whoever that special guy is in your life.
Before we dive into the catalogue, it’s important to start with some general advice. Despite what you may have heard, not every man is exactly the same. And unfortunately, they aren’t dreaming of what to include on your wedding registry.
All jokes aside, men have their own tastes, individual characteristics, and yes, feelings. Looking for the perfect gift entails taking these things under consideration.
Have you ever heard a man talk about how much he wants a watch? Maybe you were eavesdropping on your husband at the last barbeque when he gushed to his friends about how he really just wanted something that tells time wrapped around his wrist…
Of course not! While a woman’s jewelry is a reflection of what she means to someone (or herself), a man’s watch is a reflection of who he is to someone. He’s not just looking for a watch—he’s looking for a Rolex Yacht-Master in Oystersteel with Everose Gold and Royal Blue trim.
When looking for a gift for your guy, make sure to uncover the specifics. It could be in what he says to his friends or the way he says it… And whenever you hear someone start a sentence with, “All guys want is…”—remember, the devil’s in the details.
Okay, so maybe you don’t have time to play detective or interrogate his close friends for gift ideas. Don’t worry, we’ve still got you covered.
There’s nothing better than an expert’s opinion. Here at Bromberg’s in Birmingham, our staff is built for helping folks just like you.
Whether you’re looking for a belated Father’s Day gift or your son’s graduation present, we can do the asking and let your intimate knowledge of the man in question lead us to the holy grail.
Well, yes, but not in the way you think.
As we wrote in an earlier blog, it’s faux pas to come out and ask precisely what someone wants as a gift. This goes for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings—basically any occasion you can think of. As they say, it’s the thought that counts.
You should ask him about what he wants. Or better yet, just talk about what he might want, and see how he reacts. What’s the difference between this and just flat out asking him what he wants? We’ll show you:
See the difference? In the first example, your man already knows exactly what you’re getting at. But when watching TV late at night, he’ll have no clue what’s behind door number two.
When picking a gift for a man, you’re also communicating who you are to them. A daughter’s purchase of a luxurious pendant or chain for their father might signal something about the job he did in raising her. The same gift from his wife would mean something entirely different.
Again, when speaking with one of our representatives, you can create the right story behind your gift. Just as you are about the man in question, our staff are knowledgeable about the lineage of each piece in our Birmingham store.
Whether it’s his birthday or your anniversary coming up this summer, you want to get him an exceptional gift he’ll never forget. Bromberg’s offers the widest selection of unique pieces. Stop in or call at any time to peruse countless pieces from over a dozen different designers.
