Top Ten Birthday Ideas for the Man in your Life

Monday, July 15, 2013

My hubby's birthday is on Sunday and he is the hardest person to come up with good gifts for.  He usually buys what he wants, which means a lot of the time I have to get creative with what to get him.  Not to say that he is picky, he would probably love anything I get for him.  I just love buying and giving awesome presents!

He also says he doesn't like celebrating his birthday.  That is just too bad, because I love celebrating anything! This year we are on a budget, so I need some cheap ideas.  Naturally, I searched Pinterest for birthday ideas and gifts for men and this is what I came up with:



Party Themes

1. Zombies!  Does your guy often refer to the Zombie Apocalypse like mine?  Then check out these awesome printables for a Walking Dead Party! You could do a lot with this party: a fog machine, gory-looking food, "bloody" drinks, mini zombie emergency kits for favors, etc. You could even have guests come dressed as zombies! How great would a surprise party be? Imagine your guy coming home to a house full of zombies (a dream come true for my husband, I'm sure)!

2. Casino Night.  We love to get away to Vegas at least once a year.  Why not bring Vegas to you?! Check out this fun Casino Birthday Party.  You could have a few card tables out for blackjack, poker, etc., break out the cigars, and give out a handheld electronic poker game and a deck of cards for favors!

3. Rustic Outdoors Party.  Last year, we went camping and white water rafting for my hubby's birthday.  This Rustic Outdoors Themed Party would have been a great addition to our adventure!  We could have set up a table while he was out rafting! Or just save it for the backyard.  Get a fire pit, roast some s'mores, and have a great time!

4. Grumpy Old Men Day.  This is such a fun idea.  And the fact that her husband put it together is impressive! Get a group of guys to wear "old men" outfits and golf, bowl, smoke pipes, and drink scotch.  It would be really funny if you could get your hands on a couple of those motorized scooters! I could totally see a group of guys getting into character and going crazy with this one.

Store-Bought Gifts

5. Opena Case.  It's an iPhone case that has a built-in bottle opener.  My hubby had one until he got a new phone and loved it!  Now that I see they make one for the iPhone 5 I might have to get one for him.

6. The Sportula.  For the grilling enthusiasts out there.  You can get a grill spatula with your favorite team's logo on it.  They also offer spatulas with other logos on them besides sports teams, including patriotic logos, collegiate logos, and #1 Dad logos.

7. Zombie Survival Kit.  For the zombie enthusiast (like my husband), this Zombie Survival Kit is silly but useful, as it is an actual emergency kit.  It is a good gift for a laugh and great to have in the house just in case.  After all, you never know when the zombies (or a natural disaster) will strike!

8. A Par-scription.  I saw this on Pinterest and it had a link to nowhere.  I tried to find it online to no avail.  You could totally make it yourself though.  Get a couple of golf balls, a prescription bottle, and some blank labels.  Print out your own faux Rx and put it on the bottle and on a little paper bag!  Buy them a round of golf at their favorite course to go with it, and you have a fun gift for any man in your life that loves to golf.


9. Rosemary Mint Shaving Cream.  I think it would be pretty cool to make something like this.  My husband loves the shaving cream/ Beard Lube from Jack Black, but this probably smells similar and would cut the cost.  This would be great to give as a gift with a new shave kit.

10. Beer Brewing Kit.  This one isn't handmade by you, but it will give your man a chance to get crafty!  This kit comes with everything he needs to brew his own beer.  If you enjoy beer too, it can be something fun for you together!

I know my husband would love any of these ideas!  Hope you got some inspiration from them as well!
