I am completely stumped as to what to buy as a gift, that is a little different, for a 30 year old male. I would like to keep the amount to around $20.00. Help please!!

Does he drink coffee?, maybe a coffe plunger with some coffee grounds and or some chocolate covered coffee beans.

Does he work in an office or similar? If so, how about a little silver case for business cards; a business card holder for his desk; a nice pen.

If he travels you could get him some nice luggage tags. I found some brushed metal ones at Living and Giving and bought about 8 of them to give as gifts (and for myself too!).

Some sort of nice men's toiletries that he wouldn't normally buy (from the Body Shop or similar), like a body scrub or after-shave gel/balm.

Sorry for the warped reply but just couldn't resist this answer..

Get him one of those remote holders you put on the armchair...

Apologies - must be the pre-Xmas stress making me cheeky

Good luck in finding somehting "just right" tho

What about some car cleaning accessories. I know that's not very original but is very useful.
Or like I bought at the Big Red Shed tonight......3 long handled barbeque tools with rubber grips and wooden handles, stainless ends. Cheaper seperately than a set. My old man is going to be thrilled.
A music voucher perhaps????
Chockies?????
Or make up a survival pack for the festive season........panadol, berocca, eyedrops etc, and a pkt of you know what's if he's single!!!! That's if you can joke with this guy and he won't be offended.
It's getting late and with that last suggestion.......time I got to bed!
Cheers,

Does he drink? I saw in our supermarket, they had a wide variety of diffrent wines all wrapped up nicely in cellophane with a ribbon and bow. It was the clear cellophane so you could see the label as to what you're actually buying.
Got a bottle for my Dad to add to his birthday present. Those poor people who'se birthdays get "lost" in the Xmas functions etc.

If he is a fun sort of guy, how about some novelty boxers.

Otherwise all I can think of it a plant. Either in a pot or if he has a garden, soemthing suitable to be planted outside.

I find males really hard to buy for, including my husband.

What about a book, or a book voucher. I nice bottle of wine/port, or if he doesn`t drink wine a few different expensive bottles of beer, that you can buy seperatley from the supermarkets. Some sauce/marinade for the bbq.

In Woolworths/Foodtown are lovely silver metal canisters containing coffee & they look lovely & would make a nice gift with say some chocolates to go with the coffee.
