Finding a Gift For Grandpa Can Require Extra Work

Finding an appropriate gift for grandpa can be a daunting task. For many men at or near retirement, they have had a lifetime to accumulate tools, knick-knacks, and hobby items. Often, due to a certain level of financial stability and a self-sufficiency that has developed over time, grandpas have developed the habit of just going out and getting (for them) whatever it is they want or need. Invariably, grandfathers answer “nothing” when asked what they would like as a gift, whether it be for a birthday, anniversary, or Christmas.

Man Gifts: Function Not Fashion

Boyfriends, husbands and fathers are some of the most difficult to buy for when it is holiday or birthday time. Many children are taught from a young age to buy gifts that they themselves would enjoy and may not get on a regular basis. This is taught because often they are attending birthday parties of children their own age and gender. However, this approach to gift giving doesn’t always translate. Boyfriends, husbands and fathers have suffered enough from the endless photo frames, clothing “outfits” and random items that their well-meaning girlfriends, wives, and children gave them. Men enjoy items that are functional, in fact, the more functional it is, the more it is enjoyed. The Swiss Army knife is a perfect example of one small item that does so many useful things. When women start giving functional gifts to the special men in their lives, those gifts will spend less time gathering dust and more time being put to good use.
