Men are often some of the fussiest people out there. Even the self-proclaimed simple man can be difficult to impress. Whether it’s figuring out what he doesn’t have, what they want or what they need, you don’t have to resort to a standard box of underwear and socks. Instead, think outside the box. Think jewellery, cufflinks, funky socks, a bottle of whisky, maybe even a subscription to a music streaming service. There’s a whole world of options for stylish men’s accessories and personalised gifts for men, and most significantly, the best flowers for men too. Join us as we run down our list of online gifts for men and their floral accompaniments.
Flowers for men
We know it’s a bit unorthodox to send flowers to men. But to deprive mankind of the beauty that is floristry is a travesty in itself. Now, we’re not suggesting that you start sending a dozen roses to all the men in your life. That might be a bit too much straight away. What we do recommend is thinking deeply about the man in question – Who are they? What do they do? And most importantly, what do they mean to you? The flowers you send to a family member versus a partner are bound to differ from those sent to a colleague at work.
The Perfect Gifts for the Men in Your Life
The Beer, Wine & Spirits Guy
If the guy in your life loves a fresh cold beer at the end of a hard day’s work, then you probably already know his favourite beer. A case of that with a few beer glasses will impress any bloke. If he enjoys experimenting, you can even load up a selection of craft beer to wow his tastebuds. If he’s really experimental, then why not consider grabbing a home brewing kit.
But what about wine? An often more in-depth drinking experience (even with all these craft breweries), wine can vary from the cheap and cheerful to the upper echelon of extravagance. Check our alcohol extras for his favourite drink from red to white, sparkling wine, prosecco, and rose. If you have something significant to celebrate, why not splurge on Bollinger Special Cuvée, one of the finest French champagnes. The perfect gift for a special occasion.
Of course, you’ll need something to drink out of eventually, and while wine glasses are a treat for the senses, sometimes you need to take your wine on the go. To that we say, happy hour has never been easier or more portable than with the Cheeki wine tumbler. Oh, and maybe throw in some Reusable Metal Straws too.
For a more spiritual present, you can’t go past good whisky. Grab a pair of tumblers, a mixologist double jigger, some Bar station cool rocks and pair it with a bottle of Starward Malt Whisky. And for the gin lover, there’s Hendrick’s.
Not to be confused with Inspector Gadget, these blokes just seem to be ahead of the curb when it comes to the latest and greatest tech. While buying them a brand new iPhone or next-generation video game console could cost an arm and a leg, there are plenty of accessories and affordable tech presents for the guy in your life that won’t break the bank: a new pair of headphones, a power bank, speakers, to name only a few.
Not every man loves the great outdoors, but for the ones that do, it’s hard to get them to come inside. To make their life easier when they’re out on adventures, consider where they’re going and what they’re doing. Do they need a new jacket? Perhaps a quality pair of hiking boots? Maybe they enjoy going fishing and need a fresh stock of bait and tackle. The world is your oyster, so make it there’s too.
The Styling & Profiling Man
Woo! To be the man, you’ve got to beat the man. If you want your man to be the next stylin’, profilin’, limousine riding, jet flying, kiss-stealing, wheelin’ n’ dealin’ son of a gun! Then you’ve got to make sure he looks the part too.
For an add on gift to your man flowers, add some Handsome 2 in 1 shampoo that gently cleans and lightly conditions, leaving hair soft, silky and, of course, handsome.
The Experiences Fan
Not all gifts have to be physically tangible. Some of the best gifts are experiences and events shared with others. If you need to find gifts for men that have everything, think skydiving or a track day with some high-performance sports cars. Maybe it’s a visit to a winery, brewery or distillery. Or a road trip away together. For the man in your life, experiences last.
Go full salt bae with Olsson’s Fine Macrobiotic Sea Salt. Free From additives or preservatives, this exquisite bag of salt retains a high level of natural marine minerals and trace elements, making it suitable for cooking, dining, and even bathing.
The One Who’s Always Snacking
We have so many different kinds of snacks and gourmet goodies to choose from it’s difficult to pin down our favourites. But for the man in your life, we definitely recommend adding just jerky, the authentic beef jerky snack made from the primmest cuts of Australia’s finest grass-fed beef. Pair that with some Serious Popcorn – sweet & salty, coconut & vanilla or chocolate – and you’ll have one content gentleman on the couch.
For his sweet tooth, however, you’re gonna have to make a decision between chocolate and cookies. And trust us when we say it’s not always easy when you have Bizzarri Dolci’s traditional scotch shortbread dipped in rich dark chocolate and Koko Black Cookies n Creamy white chocolate all in the one place.
For a Man’s Best Friend
If you’ve got a good boy running around, then we’ve got some absolutely delicious Rascal Treats for them to enjoy. And if they need a bath, you can also add the Ethique Bow Wow Bar for sweet-smelling, soft, and fluffy dogs.
If they’re more of a cat guy, then don’t worry, we’ve got cats covered with “The Dog Did It” Cat Tags. But before you add it to your cart, did you know some types of flowers are harmful to your furry friends? Even though they are stunning flowers, many varieties of Lilies are toxic to cats. Because of this, we’ve created a pet-friendly range of flower arrangements.
Hampers Make it Easy
If you’re in a bit of a hurry and need an all-in-one present for the guy in your life, then hampers are the way to go. Our Happy Hopportunity hamper, for example, will please the beloved beer lover in your life! It arrives with 4 bottles of Young Henrys’ Newtowner and a succulent potted plant to accompany the brews.
Coffee fanatics can have their senses overloaded with a trio of Coffee Chaser treats from one of Australia’s premier roasters Bahen & Co, while our Well Red Gift Hamper makes for a delicious companion after dinner with your man.
If you and he both love Hendrick’s Gin, raise a glass and make his day even more special with a thoughtfully curated gift like our Gin-gerbread hamper! Featuring a bottle of Hendrick’s small-batch Scottish gin, two glass tumblers and Bar Station’s set of 8 cool rocks, there’s even a jar of Misty’s vegan coconut salted caramel to drizzle on everything. Or just grab a spoon and enjoy it right from the jar! His choice.
In addition to his incredible gift, you might want to add a greeting card. If you are stuck on what to write, check out our handy hints in this article here.
