Home and Office Decor Gifts for Men
One of the keys to buying gifts for those that are difficult to buy for is thinking of those things that they would use but would not buy for themselves. For many men, this might mean buying them something to enhance the decor in their office space. While they might spend eight hours a day or more in their office, which is probably more waking hours than they spend at home, they often not have put much time or thought into making the place comfortable and personalized. You can help them with that. Or, you can complement the type of decor they've started to establish in their home with an extra touch.
Check out the things that they already have in their living and work spaces that they purchased themselves. If you're trying to think of something to give a colleague for their office space then you might notice that they have some pictures of their family playing sports or could have chosen their own furniture for the room. If you're interested in buying something for a sibling or a friend then you might look for clues in their home of what they might want or need in terms of decor. Even looking at a person's wardrobe can tell you a lot about the sort of decorating choices that they might make for themselves.
Once you know the sort of look that you will want the item that you're buying to have and have a feel for their personal taste, you can start thinking about things that would fit well in their office or their home. The best things are those that are useful and not just something that looks nice. You might choose to buy them a comfortable office chair if they just have one they picked up at a garage sale, for instance. Or, if you are thinking of buying them framed art prints then you might choose some that remind them of a trip that you took together. Another great option might be a fireplace - sounds crazy at first, but wouldn't it be nice for him to have a gas fireplace in his office, or man cave to make it feel more comfortable, both in terms of the indoor temperature and the look. There are all sorts of different ways that you can connect something aesthetically pleasing to something else in their life.
Stick with smaller items when you're buying for someone's office. While they will likely be able to appreciate a new throw rug or a framed poster of their favourite movie, they might not be so welcoming of something that takes up a lot of space. No matter what you choose, if you keep his tastes in mind it's hard to go wrong. The point is, don't discount decor items out of hand as a great gift for the man in your life.
