Top 10 Birthday Gifts for Husband Table
Find the Perfect Gift by Narrowing Down the Options
It’s easier to find the “best birthday gifts for husband” when you can put items into categories.
- Cooking. Think upgraded BBQ, better cooking utensils, special cooking ingredients from foreign countries.
- Tech. This could be anything from a new iPhone to a fitness watch.
If your husband has been hinting that he would like a new gadget to play with, then look for something technological that he would enjoy. It could be a camera, it could be a tablet or it could be, computer-related and…
You get the idea.
- Shaving. So many men skimp on the quality shaving utensils and they have no idea what they are missing!
You could get him some quality shaving oil, a new double edge razor or find the right brand of moisturizer to help soothe his sensitive skin and prevent razor burn.
- Tools. If your husband is Mr. Fix It, then you might consider adding some new power tools to his collection. Not something that will make him feel like he has more chores to do, but rather a unique tool that he has been wanting in order to take his handyman skills to the next level.
- Fine Wines or Spirits. If your husband enjoys sipping on a fine wine or vintage scotch, look for a special bottle that you wouldn’t normally spend the money on.
- Cars/Motorcycles. Is he a car guy or in love with his motorcycle? Get him something some fancy wax to polish his “baby” or a new accessory that he doesn’t yet own.
- Runner. If he runs, get him some handy gear. Maybe an upgraded pair of running shoes, a light for night running or some headphones that don’t fall out has he runs.
These are just a few categories to help you get started. There are so many and we can’t list them all!
A Few Tips
You also need to consider whether he prefers something serious, something funny/humorous, something useful/practical and what your budget is.
Do some detective work and pay attention to his household habits in order to select the right gift for him.
Come on, You Can Be a Little More Creative Than That!
We know that some of you out there have a hard time shopping for gifts, which is exactly why we have created this guide to the “birthday gift for husband” from you (the spouse).
Some things we would avoid buying for his special day (unless he specifically tells you otherwise) include:
The worst one is probably exercise equipment or anything that would give your husband the impression that he needs to get in shape. It’s a huge blow to his ego and will probably make him feel like he’s not good enough “as-is” for you, so be careful with the fitness-related gifts.
The other options are just so cliché and lack originality, so really try to find out what your husband wants but hasn’t actually spent the money on yet.
That is the key to finding him a great gift!
Top 3 Best Birthday Gifts for Husband
Remember, these are only suggestions. If our top three won’t cut it for your husband, check out the other great options we suggest in our table!
If your husband just happens to be an avid outdoorsman, then this is the type of gift that is right up his alley (if he doesn’t already have something like it).
This particular knife would come in handy in a variety of situations: hunting, fishing, hiking, camping or just about anywhere you need a fixed blade knife.
So why the Buck Knives brand?
Because they know how to make a quality product. This isn’t a knife that will let your man down; it is designed to last and they dedicate so much time and effort into the small details that he’ll be hard put to find a flaw.
Alternatively, you could look at the nice gloves we suggested in our table (product number 5), which would be great for hunters or guys who paintball.
Does your husband like to hike? Does he need to drink water while he is hiking but doesn’t want to carry around heavy water bottles?
Get him a LifeStraw
This little straw is capable of removing 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria such as salmonella and E. coli; it can remove 99.9% protozoa (which would be things like Cryptosporidium or Giardia) and the best part is…you do not need any batteries or special attachments.
Your man can safely drink water from streams, lakes, rivers or any other water source that he may happen upon outdoors. It even comes with a handy sealed bag to keep it clean while stored.
Keep in mind that this does not protect against viruses and while it does have limitations, it does not use harsh chemicals to clean the water.
This is a great gift for men who travel, hike or spend a lot of time outdoors and one that he will greatly appreciate!
This nice gift set includes a bar of all natural shaving soap, a shaving brush and a shaving bowl that would be ideal for husbands who wet shave.
The soap is great because they use natural/vegan ingredients and they cut out all of the harsh stuff that ends up irritating the skin (parabens, sulfates, dyes, etc.) Instead, the mixture of shea butter and coconut oil will moisturize the skin and soften the hair follicles, preparing them for the shave.
Add in the quality stainless steel bowl from Schöne and a synthetic bristled brush from Parker Safety Razor and you have a wonderful (and highly practical) gift that your husband will love.
