These are the real gifts that most men would like to receive.

Gifts for birthdays, gifts for Christmas or just a little gift to say "I love you". Yes, men also need to hear woman say I love you, whether in words or the quality of a gift bought for them.

The real gifts for men do not include engraved cigar or cigarette cases, golf clubs or a flask to put whiskey or brandy in it.

Extreme Sports ( Day trips, adventure weekends, family time )

The perfect gifts for the guy who has everything. Extreme Sports covers a whole range of sporting activities, and some of them are not really sports.

There are many extreme sports centers or locations throughout the entire world, making this type of birthday or even graduation gift perfect.

All extreme sport adventures can last from one day to two weeks, or however long you would like, sometimes the best unusual gift ideas, are really the best. Here are some of the extreme sports activities:

Scuba Diving......... Parachute Jumping......... Bungee Jumping......Paint Balling

Jet Skiing .............. Extreme Motocross .........Base Jumping .........Snow Boarding

Sky Diving ..............Mountain Biking ..............Hang Gliding ..........Surfing

White water rafting / kayaking ..........Adventure Racing ............Power Boat Racing

The most extreme sports city in the world, Queenstown, New Zealand

This could be the best unique gift idea ever, and you could combine it with your annual vacation or even a honeymoon, or even a second honeymoon. All of these extreme sports can be done local to you, or they can be done in a tropical paradise.

You can book a weekend away for you and your partner, or even your son as a perfect graduation gift, or you could take the whole family. These are exhilarating sporting adventure gifts for the man who has everything, all events can be recorded for posterity and a memory of that one time, that a man was actually bought, a perfect gift.

What's the Cost ?

You cannot put a price on the best unique gift ideas, well, you can really, some of these extreme sports gifts cost from approximately $40 dollars, not much for possibly one of the most memorable days of his life.

This is one of the best gift ideas for a man, an experience of this nature can rejuvenate a mans ego and give much enjoyment to a couple or a family as an experience together.

Throwing a Party

This is not a top ten gift for men, but more of an accompaniment to a birthday gift, but only if carried out with style, or it just turns into another evening of drinks with friends.

The first thing you must remember, is it's your birthday gift idea for him, not you, so you do not buy a new dress or shoes, it takes the focus off of your man.

No need for a themed party, they take to much emphasis off of him as well, anything which does not focus on this special day for your man, whether he is your son, your boyfriend or husband, you should not do, as these are the special men in your life, do this for them, and they will be smitten with you such a long time.

Party Atmosphere

Normal bring a bottle parties do help with the alcohol supply, so many people bring a bottle of wine, and spend all night drinking Malibu and lemonade.

Change the game slightly, have a bring a firework party, or bring a Cuban cigar party, or you could ask guests to bring something to do with your mans hobby. If he does like golf, you could have bring a golf item party, whatever he is into, focus everything around him.

Hire a barman for the night, this adds a very nice touch of class and does not cost that much, make sure he is dressed in black shoes and trousers, white shirt and bow tie, make him look the part. If he does not know how to mix drinks, get him a book on cocktails or download one from the internet.

Give the barman a bar area that looks nice with a fair bit of room and a table behind him, have a display of glasses, even if you have to hire them in, maybe some clear fairy or rope lights.

A barman can be as good as his tools, get him a cocktail shaker, sparklers, umbrellas, cocktail sticks and other bar compliments, look again on the internet on how to dress drinks, it's visually stunning and makes any party go with a swing.

Have some of the coconut flavored drinks or even Bacardi drinks actually in half of coconuts with straws, if you can get small green coconuts, these would be perfect for tropical drinks. Different glasses for different drinks is very important, have an assortment of glasses.

A waitress, dressed like the barman, would be a great help, you do need someone to collect glasses, load the dishwasher and bring the clean glasses back to the bar. If you like, and again this is another touch of class, have the waitress take trays of different canapes around your arriving guests offering them a taste of what is to come. Only have the waitress go around for say the first hour, once every fifteen minutes is enough.

Party Food

Change the traditional foods, no sausage rolls, no vol-avaunt, try fruit kebabs, cheese and onion samosas, look through the internet, find some interesting snack foods, make your guests say wow, and open their taste buds.

All this need not cost much, but it will take a bit of time to organize but for the compliment to the best unique gift ever, you may have just created the best present ever.
