Memorable Birthday Gifts For Him
We all know the pressure of buying a birthday present for dad, brother, or the guy you've just started seeing. Thoughts like, "Will he like it?", "Have I made the right choice?", "Is this special enough?" come to mind. When it comes to birthday gifts for your loved ones, a bottle can often make the perfect present. Feeling unsure about where to start? No need to worry! We've put together a list of birthday gift ideas for him to help simplify your gift shopping. Think of this as your checklist!
Creative Birthday Gift Ideas For Him
1. Birthday Cocktails
So, you know your Dad's favourite cake is red velvet, and you know his go-to drink is a martini. With that in mind, why not make his day extra special by hosting a get-together to serve his perfect birthday cocktail – a Red Velvet Martini? Invite your Dad over, break out the bartending tools and get mixing while you catch up and spend some quality time together. Another birthday cocktail recipe for Dad could be a Baileys Chocolate Orange Martini or a Baileys Salted Caramel Espresso Martini. They ooze special occasions, they're tasty and easy on the eye too!
2. An Extra Special Birthday Gift Set(s)
We like to think of birthday gift sets as not just a gift, but a way to level up special occasions. They're like giving a loved one an experience to wow their senses. If he's a big gin lover, then a Martini Cocktail Making Kit is a good shout. It features a coupe glass, a jigger and all the bartending tools he needs to nail the recipe (that's also included!) to make the ultimate G&T. If you have a whisky-loving brother, then fear not, look for a Whisky Gift Set that features exquisite whisky like Johnnie Walker, Black & White or Godawan. Opt for those specific gift sets that feature cocktail glasses, barware, sugar syrup, and garnish. Old Fashioned, anyone?
3. A Milestone To Remember
Another year around the sun deserves to be celebrated! But the big birthday milestones like the 30th, 40th, 50th, and 60th call for going the extra mile to make him smile. Something truly unique, with a personal touch that he can treasure, even when he's finished the bottle. Mark his milestone with an engraved birthday gift; a heartfelt message on the bottle of his favourite drink will give him all the feels. If he's a whisky lover, we suggest going for a nice bottle of whisky, like Talisker Skye or Johnnie Walker Blue Label. He can use it to mix up a Hot Toddy or a Whisky Sour if that's more his vibe.
4. Dress Up His Barware
So, you've bought your boyfriend a bottle of his favourite rum for his birthday for the last 5 years, as it's a guaranteed winner. But change is always good, and there's no time like the present to switch things up. As he already has a stocked bar, why not treat him to some unique barware? A Cocktail Shaker or, better still, a Bartending Tools Bundle or a Cocktail Making Set will get you all the brownie points, upgrade his ‘bar’ and help make his birthday a memorable one.
We are aware that picking the right gift can be a bit tricky, especially for men. It could be the new guy on the team who joined a few weeks ago, and you're the chosen one to buy the gift. Or your new uncle-in-law who you've only met a handful of times, so you're still trying to figure out the ideal birthday gift for him. Or maybe you are looking for some exquisite gifting for your loved ones like your Dad or your boyfriend or your husband. Whether on a budget or not, these birthday gifting ideas for him are sure to turn your surprise into a memorable one!
