Gifts for the sports lover

Most men are sports fanatics. If your boyfriend or husband is one of them, you can never go wrong in gifting him sports memorabilia. An entire collection of all things associated with a sport he best enjoys playing or watching – be it soccer or tennis or whatever. Look for autographed balls, bats or rackets or hockey sticks (depending upon the sport), helmets, gloves, photographs, collages and plaques. A jersey of his favourite player, a replica of the biggest title won by the team- all add to the charm. Check out if any personal item of any of the team players are available on auction or on sale like shoes or shades and pick it up for him before anyone else does. There is a host of items available online. Collect as many items as possible and make it a collector’s package.

How About A Hiking Or Skiing Trip?

If he is the agile and adventurous sort, take him far away from the madding crowd to the Wiessner woods at Stowe in Vermont. Park your car at the parking lot. Cross a lush meadow and there you are in the midst of maple, birch and white pine. This place is ideal if you are not a very experienced hiker. Snowshoeing and cross- country skiing can also be done here. Bring along your dog and walk along the bike path for a peaceful stroll savoring the natural colours, if you so desire.

Indulge Him With A Little Pampering

This is the perfect time to let the workload off your shoulders and relax. Pamper the boyfriend who works hard all year, literally from head to toe. Get an appointment at the best spa around. Pick him up from his house like he does the rest of the 364 days and drop him off at the spa, where he receives a variety of services, from facial to manicure, body message to a complete makeover. Indulging himself in a luxurious treatment this festive season is s sure to make his heart flutter.

Opera, Theatre, Jazz Or Orchestra – Give Him An Evening To Remember

Not all men are crazy about sports. If he is one of them, and culture is his area of interest, fly with him to the Sydney Opera House for a couple of days and gift him an evening of rich art. Choose from a plethora of events like music, dance, theatre, opera, besides other laughter shows. Book your tickets in advance and you are set. In case you prolong your stay, the dazzling Opera Gala New Year’s Eve is sure to rock your night with jazz, orchestra, opera and lots more. Choose the platinum package and you are covered with the best of everything.

Is He An Art Lover? Does He Love Books – Here Is What To Get Him

Hitched to an artist or an art enthusiast? Adorn his walls with a painting by his favorite artist. He will genuinely appreciate your choice and that will make his day memorable. Similarly, with a book lover. Gifting him a book he has wanted to read for a long time, or a rare copy of a book that has gone out of print or a new release autographed by the author gives him something to cherish all his life.
