Easter Gifts for Men
Though it is a traditional Christian holiday that celebrates the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, Easter also is a time of new life and renewal. According to the National Retail Federation, men and women alike use the time to buy gifts ranging from clothes to candy to celebrate the end of the winter and new beginnings. Think of this theme of renewal as you consider gifts for the guys in your life.
For men who love to spend time in the garden, Easter is a good time to surprise him with new tools or some plants. Check out his gloves to see if he could use a sturdy new pair to protect his hands. The tool tote from RedEnvelope is masculine with its suede details and six exterior pockets to hold his new tools. Make the tote even more special this Easter by getting it monogrammed with his name or initials.
Women aren't the only ones who need their wardrobes spruced up for spring. Take advantage of the spring specials that retailers put on during the Easter season to get your guy a new suit to wear on Easter Sunday. Spare your budget and just present him with a bright new tie in pastel green, blue or yellow colors of the season. Maybe it's time to renew his headgear. If you're tired of looking at his worn-out hat, get him a new chapeau for the spring -- one that you won't mind looking at for a year or so.
Easter may be a good time to renew your commitment to your man with a very special gift of jewelry or to get his wedding ring professionally cleaned. While most people spend less at Easter on gifts, under $20 according to the National Retail Federation, splurge a little with a new set of cuff links or a tie clip he can wear on Easter Sunday. If you prefer to stick with a religious theme, consider the masculine, heavy-duty cross necklace offered at RedEnvelope. The stainless steel cross has room for engraving a special message of love and renewed commitment.
Men always appreciate good food, and they often enjoy a good box of candy or chocolate-covered nuts as much as you do. So don't be afraid to splurge on a big box of his favorites. Easter meals with family are traditional at Easter, and may include some of his favorite dishes to share with everyone. If you do baskets for your guy, stick little gifts in with the goodies such as a bottle opener or key chain. Meat and cheese baskets might be more up your guy's alley, leaving the good chocolates all for you.
