What Gift For The Man Who Has Everything?
That problem stemming from the start of time - what to buy the man who has everything? Or just as bad these days - the Man who has everything he conceivably wants. Either way this guy is a nightmare to buy a gift for. I am one of these pains (so I'm told) so thought I would let you into some gift ideas for difficult men aged 25-35.
The Delorean - Remote Control
The Delorean, for those who aren't aware, is the car from the movie Back to The Future.
This was bought for me last year and is AMAZING. Not only do I love it but all my mates also comment on it when they see it.
It combines one of the best films ever made, the idea of time travel, a car, and a gadget - what is not to love?
Mine is mainly used as a desk decoration but it has had some good use over the last 12 months and is still going strong.
Vintage Sports Tops
If your gift recipient is into sports then the vintage shirt is a cool gift. I am a huge soccer fan and whilst I wouldn't wear a modern strip everyone always notes a vintage one.
I'm sure this also applies to US sports - some of the shirts aren't even for wearing, they are so cool they go straight on the wall.
A quick search online will show you many shirts you can buy. If you aren't sure what team's kit to buy then aim for the big ones. Nike are doing a modern take on the Barcelona and Manchester United vintage kits which look good. Other really famous teams are Real Madrid, Liverpool, AC Milan and Bayern Munich.
New York also have some great vintage kits - especially from the days Pele played there.
As we move into our late 20s and early 30s we like to view ourselves as more sophisticated. For the first time we maybe even consider wasting beer money on wall art for our homes.
That said any wall art needs to be really cool and there aren't many things us guys like better than comic books.
Marvel, among others, do a great range of wall canvases that you can pick up in varying sizes, prices and characters. The one below is definitely up there with my favourites.
Most men love design. No matter what field it is in if it is clever they will appreciate it.
If you see something that has an intriguing design and like it - chances are so will he.
Great design is why the Volkswagon Beetle and Campervans are still so iconic today. But fortunately for gifts we can buy great design on a much smaller scale.
I noticed this at my friends house last month and thought it was great. Great idea, great design, great to have in the kitchen - great gift!

The Way To A Man's Heart Is Through His Stomach
This may be an old saying but it remains true today. Who doesn't enjoy good food and drink?
A good idea is to make up a parcel of food and drink you know the guy likes. Maybe even buy a slightly fancier version as it is a special occassion. Good themes are beer or cheese and biscuits. Different sausage is often popular too.
You can cater for any alergies or preferences if you self pick but don't worry - if you don't know exactly what he likes then there are loads of hampers available - he won't be disappointed!
