Gaming Consoles or Video Games
Because flowers are mostly given to women, you may need a gift that tickles most guys’ fancy if you’re gifting a man. You won’t go wrong with video games.
As it stands, gaming is a 200-billion industry, give or take a couple of ten thousand. And guess who it majorly comprises? You guessed right; your good old chaps include 61% men, 30% women, and 8% non-binary.

You can tell it’s a gift that most men if they don’t have the latest gaming console or even ever owned one, would desire, and the gesture would mean a lot to them.
However, the cost of games and consoles can break the bank. But the price won’t be an issue once you see their faces gleaming with happiness, or better yet, crying with joy once they get their console/game.
Gift cards can be a great way to show the loved ones you care for them, and it doesn’t have to be on a special occasion like Valentine’s Day or Friendship Day.

If you’re short of ideas, consider big retailers like Amazon, clothing gift cards, or even travel gift cards. You’ll also not go wrong with food, skincare, and entertainment gift cards.
