You’ve all probably got at least one guy you’ve got to shop for every now and then. Regardless of the occasion, men are notoriously difficult to shop for.

Lucky for you, here are some Dos and Don’ts you can use the next time you’ve got to shop for any man in your life, regardless of the occasion or recipient.


  • Purchase a unique and upscale clothing or accessory item.
  • Select a gift you know goes along with things he likes to do.
  • Put a personal stamp on your gift.
  • Talk to his friends to get ideas.


  • Go for a cheesy tie or traditional leather belt.
  • Purchase anything that will remind him of work.
