Gifts for Guys

We receive loads of press releases, touting the perfect Valentine’s Day gifts
for men. And it got us thinking, what do men want from a gift, at
Valentine’s or any other day.

Studio 5 producer, Michelle Torsak decided to ask men what they want, and
their responses make our lives a whole lot easier!

I interviewed 25 men at all ages and stages in life and came to the
following conclusions:

1. They get lost on sentimental, but they appreciate the personal.

· Put family pictures on containers and fill with snacks for his cubicle.
Each person in the family represents a type of treat. For example: Sweet,
salty, spicy, sour.

· Custom fortune cookies;

2. They are cognizant of family funds, so they appreciate the small

· Fill an oversize Coke bottle with quarters to be used for vending
machine splurges; Walmart; $5.99

· A pad of dollar bills; available from your bank

· Gift card to a lunch hotspot by his work

3. Doesn’t matter their age, they are 14 at heart.

· Architectural Lego toys; Barnes & Noble; $20

· Bad Boy Bag; ; $15

· Hard-To-Find 70’s Candy (or any decade);Hometown Favorites at

4. They appreciate presence more than presents.

· Dinner with your full attention is always appreciated.

5. Sometimes the intangible is the best gift of all.

· A coupon book with the something important to them: a night home
alone, an opportunity to sleep in, an afternoon of golf. Don’t make them
“ask” to redeem, give them a calendar date for when you will make it
