Guys are traditionally quite difficult to buy for – and everyone knows socks and jocks for dad aren’t exactly the most thoughtful of gifts! You can’t really buy chocolates or flowers for your dad when it’s his birthday, your husband may not like the idea of vouchers for a spin class and your boyfriend won’t know what to do if you drag him along to an afternoon tea for two!
The type of ‘gift for him’ that you want all depends on knowing a few things:
Is there a space in the calendar, or a weekend free, that would be the ideal time for springing a surprise city break on him? Or is there a beach break not too far away that would provide a perfectly chilled out escape? Or even an adrenaline-packed adventure? Groupon users have been embracing our Getaway deals to embark on exciting weekends all over New Zealand (and abroad), get last-minute city breaks for two and even experience new activities you wouldn’t have imagined of ever doing before – skydiving anyone?
While gym classes or rock climbing might be ideal for your boyfriend, you might not want the same deal for your dad, who would prefer to perfect his swing with golf lessons or a relaxing escape away instead. We aim to provide a good range of gifts for guys in this section of the site, and give gift inspiration that will hopefully compliment who you’re buying for.
Why you should get a gift for him at Groupon….
We have a massive range of gifts for guys – no matter what their taste - and update our website regularly to give you the best gifts possible. The gift ideas you’ll see on this page are great if you’re thinking a wardrobe update would be nice; whether it’s helping the stylish man in your life to get a new double-breasted wool coat or snagging a great pair of sunglasses for less than half price before heading on holiday.
And that’s even before we mention getting to learn to surf, going white water rafting or going for a spot of ‘glamping’. It all depends on who you’re buying for.
What Groupon gifts would be ideal for my boyfriend?
Even if you’re in a hurry, there is no need to buy some uninspiring toiletries when we have plenty of gifts for your man, that are sure to put a smile on his dial.
Does he love craft beer? Then take him out for some craft beer tasting at a local trendy brewery. Or what about a cooking class for two?
You can help update his grooming regime with some of our unisex Health & Beauty items. We have deals on shaving kits, haircare, electric toothbrushes and more - but be careful, these gifts could have you competing over who gets to use the bathroom mirror first.
Groupon gifts that are prefect for your dad…
Your dad deserves only the best and getting him a memorable present that will blow everyone else’s out of the water is a super idea. Surprise him with a day trip to a spa and watch him lap up the luxury of having a back massage or face mask on (as long as you promise not to take any pictures). Or for the more ‘blokey’ dads, we’ve got beer glasses, sports and outdoor supplies and pub grub deals galore!
When your hubby needs a special present…
There could be no bigger birthday surprise to make his day than handing him his passport and telling him that you’re going off on an adventure. Our Getaways Collection has some of the most exciting escapes and city breaks that you’ll see anywhere online. Surprise your hubby with trip to Australia, Vietnam or Bali, or for something a little more close to home, a Bay of Islands break or a city stay like never before. Just keep an eye out for the latest travel gifts we have on this page.
And if he’s a bit of a home improvement enthusiast, take a look at some of the offers we have on Home & Garden items, with reductions on hardware, storage, lighting and a huge range of items for your garden or backyard.
