Relaxation & Therapy
Relaxation and therapy gifts, though they may seem traditionally feminine, are easily transferred to a masculine gift with the addition of gadgets and elimination of bath soaps and traditional spa treatments. Relaxation gifts are traditionally geared toward middle-aged men working full-time jobs and seeking relief from work-related stressors at the end of the day, but more & more young men are appreciating such gifts as well. From massaging armchairs to relaxing music, men of all ages and backgrounds can enjoy relaxation and therapy gifts—from gift-givers as diverse as children, friends, and coworkers.
Although the old adage says food is the way to a man’s heart, today’s tech-savvy men are more likely to have a wire running from the latest gadget to that life-giving muscle. While many older men can appreciate a well-thought-out gadget assisting with automotive or household needs, technological gadgets are typically better suited for a younger demographic, such as men in their 20s to 40s. Fortunately, there are countless companies producing new phones, tablets, music-listening devices, and game systems, providing entertainment ranging from the more “high-minded” (think puzzle-based video games) to the more traditionally masculine (think sports-related tech gadgets). These gifts are generally more highly appreciated from a friend or loved one, rather than someone who more distant.

Sports and outdoor gear, fortunately, spans over quite a wide range of interests and price points, making it an ideal gift-giving category for loved ones, casual acquaintances, and friends alike. For younger men, simple camping or sporting equipment is likely best (i.e. pocket knives, protective equipment, basic camping gear), while older men would likely benefit and appreciate larger, more specific gifts, including a mountain bike, a pair of shoes specific to their needs, or a state-of-the-art tent.
