Giving gifts to family and friends is exhilarating, no doubt. Either it’s a thank-you gift, a birthday, and/or a Christmas present, it’s fun. But let’s not deny that there could be challenges associated with it, especially when planning to hand over a present to your brother, who may have his world that he enjoys on his own.
Nonetheless, you two, at some point, have been a protector of each other, first mentor, and first friend, and first playmate – possibly. When you two are adults, you may have gone on different paths, but you two remain family and have built a strong bond through your shared experience. It’s only then a great idea to show appreciation for the years that the two of you have grown together, more so on his birthday.
While it can be a bit more difficult to find perfect gifts that your brother will appreciate without poking fun at it, there are sure ways that you can successfully touch on your brother’s heart. Since not all brothers are the same – just as not everyone has the same personality – we’ve prepared surefire ideas on how you can nail the right gift for him.
1. Sneakers and good pair of rubber shoes
Everybody loves a good pair of sneakers and rubber shoes. So, how would you decide between sneakers and rubber shoes? Well, you might want to start if your big or little brother is sporty or would rather much prefer to juggle time between work, stroll at the mall, and home. If he doesn’t like going on a run or jog, then you are better off giving him a pair of high-quality sneakers that he can use at the mall. If, on the other hand, he regularly works out and goes to the gym, we’re pretty sure that he’ll appreciate a pair of rubber shoes that have outstanding quality.
2. Strategy games and cards
Playing strategy games has become more common than ever before, and some individuals like both playing strategy games and also collecting those games’ cards, such as Pokeman cards. Yet again, this is just another option for those who see it as a fit, as some of us may like different games.
3. Workout apparel and equipment
This part is an extension of rubber shoes. For your brother, who’s a workout enthusiast, good, breathable clothes that are comfortable are always welcome. Perfect clothes for workouts are made from materials that absorb and dry sweat. They also diffuse the heat and allow for a consistent airflow to provide comfort while exercising. A good pair of running shorts or a set of shirts will surely be valued. Workout apparels are great, but an equally ideal option would be home equipment for workouts, especially if you want to encourage your brother to work out even more or maybe to entice him to be in shape despite his busy schedule.
Guys rarely buy stuff and accessories for themselves. They either don’t have time to do so or, maybe, it’s just not their interest. Usually, it’s their girlfriends or partners who do it for them. But as long as they aren’t committed to someone else yet, the family still comes first. And a wallet is always a treasured accessory. It’s a must for every man. So, if you have noticed that your brother’s wallet is wearing out, give him a treat. Surprise him with a new wallet that is made from high-quality leather that produces a classy patina through time. He would surely not forget your gesture of giving him that gift.
This is the continuation of the wallet. Just like that one, watches complete a gentleman’s look either in daily activities or formal occasions. For most men, it’s a collective item, which means that it won’t hurt to give your brother one even if he already has one that he’s regularly using. Your gift will be part of his collection that he will truly cherish forever. He won’t be disappointed if you give him a watch. Your gift can be an expensive, top-tier watch; it can be a smartwatch or just a good one he can use daily.
6. Wireless headphones or earphones
Everyone will find convenience in wireless accessories. These are just some of the things we thought we wouldn’t ever need. But once we tried to use them, then we could no longer live without them. If you have wireless earpieces as a gift to your brother, they would feel happy for either having a new one or by starting to use this kind of technology. They will definitely be thankful for having it for any circumstance, such as either they didn’t have one yet before, to have more as a spare, or replacement to their current one.
