So it’s four days to Christmas. Still unsure about what to get the boo? The men of Reddit are happy to help – and the fave ideas are way simpler than you’d think.
A nice desk chair is actually a thing.
“You know what I really want? A nice comfortable desk chair. Because if it is comfortable to sit in, I will think of you each time I sit in it. And if it is quality and lasts a long time, I’ll be thinking of your gift for quite a long time!”
“Just something I can use you know? Like a nice desk chair, or a bag, maybe even a nice watch. Just something that’s incredibly useful and is going to last me years on end.”
“A nice comfortable chair, computer parts and Bloodborne for PC.”

Socks and underwear. Always and forever.
“My birthday is almost 6 months exactly from Christmas. As a 30 year old man, the best thing is knowing my mom will buy me socks and underwear for both days.”
“High quality socks and underwear.”
“Money and a good pair of f**king socks. If one hard working man needs something. It is socks.”

Multi-tools. Because men.
“Every man wants a Leatherman multi tool and pie.”
“Utilitarian things. Useful stuff. Seriously. Tools, new tech, better versions of things we use regularly. Something that makes everyday life better or more interesting.”
“Things like a good decent tool that last is always welcome (Victoria Knox pen knife or a Lezym bike multicolor), a high quality pen, or even an upgrade of something I already have but take for granted.”

Easy does it.
“Gift cards to places you know I like.”
“Amazon gift card. I have many many things picked out that I want so either that or I’ll send you a hyperlink to the exact product that I am looking for. I am picky too.”
An experience together. Much romance.
“Buying me a drink and spending an evening with me would mean a lot more than buying the pair of Nike’s [I want]. I can’t buy [someone’s] time.”
“I would want you to take me out for supper, take me home for a movie, we could have some drinks and just goof off, talk about stuff, have sex, go to sleep.”
“If I really want something that costs money I’m likely to go out and buy it myself, but if you prepare food for me or make some kind of craft that you put time and effort into, or if you give me some kind of experience I never would have thought to have I really appreciate that.”

“Gin. I love all kinds of alcohol, and I know scotch is the go-to man liquor, but f**k if I don’t just adore the taste of a good gin.”
“A good bottle of rum usually. It’s an underrated joy, there’s some wonderful stuff out there.”
“Alcohol. This is an awesome gift for me, a bottle lasts me months and I like having a selection.”
Nerf gun or Lego for the child in him.
“Also a nerf gun. Ya a nerf gun.”
“I’m a thirty five year old dude, and I will be f**king stoked by a Lego kit or a Nerf/BoomCo blaster.”
“Lets be real here … we all want LEGOs.”

He’s got everything? Some alone time just might be it.
“A day to be alone.”
“Solitude is so massively under-rated.”
“Peace and quiet for like 4 hours. If I can buy it, I don’t want it as a gift. Just leave me alone for half a day and let me lay down on this couch, watch some TV and don’t bother me. That’s really all I want.”
