We’ve all heard of gift experiences for men which involve driving Ferraris, tanks and who knows what else; if you’re looking for something a bit more unusual, how about booking a Segway Rally for One.
Segways are those unusual two wheeled stand-up scooters popular with eccentric Americans on the sidewalks of Florida and Venice Beach. With this fantastic gift, you can book a day of fun starting with learning the basics, and finally competing on an exciting rally course.
This particular gift experience for men is available at no less than seven different locations across England, from Hampshire to North Yorkshire. After you have registered upon arrival, you will be provided with all necessary safety equipment and then taught the basics of how to operate the machine. Then you will be off on a training session allowing you to get a feel for the Segway, a group excursion around the area to further get to grips with the controls and finally the big event – Segway Rally! You will compete against a group of other people lucky enough to receive this present, and afterwards will receive a certificate and group photo as souvenirs.
This really is something different to normal gift experiences for men which involve driving machinery using very familiar controls. Segways work by sensing the body position of the driver; leaning forward to speed up, backwards to brake. This also makes it an excellent present for guys who have an interest in various types of vehicle and love getting stuck into the action. Booking a Segway Rally for One makes for a fantastically fun, unusual and generally very safe gift experience. A few of the locations are only for adults but the majority have no maximum age restriction. Riders must be at least 134 cm tall (4’5) and weigh no more than 18.5 stone (260 pounds).
We all know what football fans are like when it comes to history, trivia and notable events of the past; with this personalised football book you have the option of presented your loved one with an incredible documentation of over 100 years of football history.
With all major football clubs of England and Scotland to choose from, your book of choice will come with an abundance of match reports, pictures, transfer stories and headlines dating back to the early 20th century. Sports gifts for men are fantastic for those guys who are very passionate and nostalgic about their particular team.
What makes this gift even more special is the option of personalising both the cover and inside certificate label with a name and message of your choice. There is room on the front cover for a name of up to 22 characters (which can be embossed in gold for a small extra fee) as well as 120 characters on the inside certificate; which is more than enough room for a personal message. This really is one of the best sports gifts for men available with editorials and historical reports more than likely going back to before the birth of the recipient. Buying this gift is like giving someone a complete history of their favourite football club.
The book itself is the same size as a tabloid newspaper and measures 38 cm x 30 cm. Each book is individually bound in leatherette and has your football club name of choice and a football logo embossed in gold on the cover. All of the information within is very well researched and charts both the high points and low points of your chosen football club’s history. This is a truly unique sports gift for men and an excellent choice for any football fan, young or old.
Over recent years, many people have moved on from traditional presents for male family members and loved ones to something altogether more exciting – gift experiences for men. These experiences come as all sorts of different activities and days out, but certainly one of the most incredible currently available is the opportunity to drive a Lamborghini Gallardo.
For anyone who is a car or motorsports enthusiast, the chance to get behind the wheel of one of the most famous and high status vehicles in the world makes for an amazing present. Available at many different locations across the country, gift experiences from men certainly seem to be the way forward.
When you let the lucky guy in question know he is to be driving a genuine Lamborghini sports car – complete with a 5 litre, 500bhp, V10 engine – you will surely take his breath away. When it comes to gift experiences for men, that is certainly the desired reaction. On the day in question, the driver-to-be will be warmly welcomed at the race circuit, given a full introduction to the vehicle and safety procedures, before being taken on two demonstration laps with a qualified instructor. After the formalities, he is then free to enjoy the main event – four mind blowing laps of the circuit.
To finish off the day, your friend or loved one will be presented with a certificate to commemorate the day. This certificate makes for a nice reminder of the gift, and many men choose to frame it and hang it on the wall at home. Gift experiences for men give you an opportunity to go one better than a traditional present. Extra time in the car can be purchased on the day and up to two spectators can attend the event free of charge, so that you can see for yourself what you have purchased.
If you have male friends or family who love a drink and have a great sense of humour, one of the very best drinking gifts for men has got to be a set of personalised beer labels.
Imagine the recipient’s surprise when they are presented with an array of drinks, all adorned with their own name. The labels come in six different fantastic designs which can be placed on bottles or cans to produce a unique selection of drinks for the evening’s entertainment. Drinking gifts for men have never been so unique!
The labels are professionally designed and printed to look exactly like the real thing. Also, rather than just receiving half a dozen different labels, when purchasing this drinking gift for men you actually receive eight sheets of labels, providing a total of 48 beer labels. This means as well as the initial surprise, the lucky guy you are giving them to can also use them again in the future for other parties and occasions. The labels are made up to look like authentic Irish Stout, Mississippi Moonshine and premium lager brands, all adorned with the personal name of your choice.
Many drinking gifts for men are bought for guys who consider themselves to be quite the connoisseur when it comes to an alcoholic beverage or two. If the friend or family member you are thinking of is a collector of unusual beers, for example, what better addition than a bottle or can with their very own name on it? Other labels in the collection represent personalised premium pilsner and ale and have fantastic little details like advertising slogans and founding dates. If you’re looking for drinking gifts for men, this really is as good as it gets and will delight whoever you have in mind.
Although novelty gifts and fun presents are great for many birthdays and special occasions, sometimes it is better to buy traditional gifts for men, when you really want to make it count. This is where a wonderful present such as a personalised pocket watch comes into play; not only a stylish and classy gift, it can also be engraved with up to three initials to create a truly unique present.
Although this present may seem more suitable for older generations, many younger men would also delight in having their own custom engraved timepiece.
When it comes to traditional gifts for men, you should also be looking for something which has been well constructed and will last a lifetime. This classic timepiece is finished in brushed chrome and has a quartz timekeeping mechanism to maintain excellent accuracy. Measuring 4.5cm in diameter, the watch comes with a classic looking chain and fob, as well as an attractive gift box. This all adds to the status of the gift, as the recipient opens up the box to reveal a high quality timepiece with a personal touch. Traditional gifts for men are ideal for when you really want to show you care.
The engraving itself is done by highly skilled professionals, guaranteeing that the pocket watch will arrive with your chosen initials perfectly applied to the reverse. Every time your father, uncle, brother or friend, etc. takes out his timepiece, he will be reminded of who it is from and the occasion on which it was given to celebrate. Sometimes you don’t want to settle for a less meaningful or novelty gift; traditional gifts for men such as this provide an altogether more poignant and classy moment, one which will be remembered by all parties for a long time to come.
Table Top Football is fun for all ages and abilities, and you can often find even those who aren’t football fans having a crafty game. This has been popular with men of all ages for years and if you see one in a pub it’s rare not to see it surrounded by players waiting their turn. This inexpensive table-top version will be the perfect present for a birthday, Christmas or just when you want to treat someone.
It’s a gift that will compete well against computer games for a lads’ night in, or for children who you want to keep away from a screen and get them interacting with each other!
Many men enjoy the occasional tipple and these personalised cut crystal whisky (or whiskey, depending on their taste!) glasses will add a little finesse to every occasion. Everyone likes to feel special on their birthday and an engraved gift shows you put some thought into what you’ve given them.
For those who like their Scotch or Bourbon, this elegant gift will get used time and time again, reminding them of you each time. Able to be engraved with a message of your choice of up to 50 characters, this versatile present can be used to commemorate a landmark birthday, anniversary, wedding, retirement or simply just to show how you feel about someone!
Two generous sized glasses (easily able to handle a few ice cubes) come packaged in a luxurious blue silk-lined presentation box.
If you’re looking for a special bottle to go with this excellent gift, take a look at The Whisky Exchange, who have an excellent range of single malts, blends and other premium spirits.
If someone you know has always fancied having a go at rock climbing but never gets round to it for one reason or another, then this would make a lovely surprise for them!
There are a multitude of indoor climbing walls in the UK, but many people find this a little artificial. They are great for practice but for most climbers the real thrill is doing it outdoors on a proper rock face. Catering to all levels of ability, this professionally-tutored and supervised session would make a great introduction to rock climbing.
Starting with a detailed discussion of safety techniques and the equipment used, you’ll soon be able to put your new-found knowledge into action. Though this experience is based in North Wales, climbing days are available in other areas of the UK.
Put simply, for those of you not in the know, Zorbing (or sphereing) is rolling downhill in a giant inflatable ball. It’s not QUITE as dangerous as it sounds though!
You are cushioned by air between the inner capsule (where you are) and the tough outer skin. There are several versions available – the main difference being whether you are strapped in or not. It is common for two people to ride at the same time to balance out the ball, so it makes sense to be strapped in for safety reasons.
If you’re doing this with a group of friends then once the two have climbed into the ball and strapped themselves in, the rest of the group can start pushing them down the hill to get some SERIOUS speed up.
This makes a great day out for a stag party in the summer, especially with a few beers and a barbecue! For the adventurous (or insane), there’s also a variation called Aqua Sphereing where water is added inside the ball with you, to give you some idea of what it’s like to hang out in your washing machine.
