When your guy’s birthday is looming, you ask the usual question: “What do you want for your birthday?”
The answer is as short as it is predictable: “I don’t know.”
This unsurprising response still usually causes a storm of frantic shopping, all of which results in getting the husbands or boyfriends something easy he’s sure to like: beer. And in most cases, guys are totally fine with that. Men are simple creatures, after all.
TRY SOMETHING MORE PERSONALIZED
But this year, don’t give in to the urge to just get him a six-pack of something imported. Make his birthday gift an event. Give him something that he can unwrap and take out of a box Things Remembered can help you plan an incredibly special birthday gift that is memorable, thoughtful, and, yes – involves beer. And that’s a win for everyone concerned.
TAKE A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE
One fun idea is to get together a collection of all the beers that he’s loved and that might have special meaning for him. Get him a case of the stuff he used to drink in college. Or a six-pack of the beer he drank on your first date. These little “milestone beers” would be nicely complimented by Things Rememered’s wide selection of barware, glasses, and mugs. An engraved bottle opener with his monogram or a special phrase might seem crazy to you, but trust us: it will get pride of place near the cooler at your next cookout.
KEEP IT COOL
Guys don’t just love beer; they love cold beer. And the Corkcicle® Arctican Insulated Drink holder will keep his brew cold from the first sip to the last. Don’t confuse this stylish beer-drinking device for those flimsy foam coozies found at gas stations. Just slide any standard 12-ounce can of beer (or soda) into this stainless steel sleeve and screw on the top for double-walled insulation of your favorite brew. This is must-have tech that your guy will want to tote to every tailgate party and picnic for years to come. Available in silver and matte black, you can engrave your guy’s name or a special message right on the side, which he’ll love to show off.
PROTECT THE TAILGATE BEER
No self-respecting guy wants to show up at a tailgate empty handed or – worse – with warm beer. And our Personalized Beer Totes can prevent your guy from making this not-so-manly faux pas. Made by BUILT NY, our insulated, Neoprene tote keeps a six-pack of bottles or cans icy cold for up to four hours on your way to the festivities. He’ll love the easy carry handle, and the fact that you’ve personalized it with his name or initials. All you have to do is pick out his favorite color.
Speaking of tailgates, there’s nothing more perfect to men than the combination of beer and football. And Things Remembered has a gift that merges the two perfectly. Our NFL Beer Mugs are hearty drinking vessels emblazoned with the logo of your guy’s favorite pro gridiron squad on a durable pewter crest. Engrave a special message, date, player, or phrase to that crest and you have a tankard that will be proudly displayed when friends come over for the game. Your guy will love making his friends that root for other teams drink out of these mugs, too (it’s a guy thing).
When you’re looking for a gift for that special man this year, take a break from getting him clothes. Go with that time-tested and winning combination that men love: beer and Things Remembered.
