With them having lived long enough to amass every possession under the sun, some men are just impossible to buy for. So, if you’re trying to find the perfect gifts for the impossible man- hopefully this list of gift ideas will help give you some inspiration!
Finding that special man in your life the perfect gift can be a real headache. Will they use it? Where will it go? Are they going to like it? These common questions have plagued gift-givers for years, and gifts for the impossible man are the hardest to find.
These gift ideas (for the impossible man!) are a bit of a mixed bag. Some of them are funny, others are nostalgic, others are thoughtful – it depends on the kind of guy he is. But hopefully you’ll be able to find something here to spark some interest!
First on my list of gifts for the impossible man, it’s whiskey glasses. If that special person considers themselves a whisky aficionado, this set of whisky glasses is sure to hit the spot. As many people don’t have dedicated glasses for this strong spirit, having some special glasses to crack out for that evening tipple is a great idea.
As there are 4 glasses included in this set, it’s also a great deal. I love this as a gifts for the impossible man, because it’s something they can keep for many years to come – and it can be a special gift for a special birthday too. If these aren’t quite the gifts for the impossible man – then try wine glasses or a decanter instead!
Retro 70s box
OK, something finding gifts for the impossible man needs some creativity! Sometimes, nostalgia is the way to go when it comes to gift-giving. The Original Vintage Candy Company have created a fun gift basket for those that were living their best lives in the 60s. This is just ian ideal option for gifts for the impossible man.
With retro candy boosting in popularity in the last few years, why not treat that impossible man to a trip down memory lane? Including over 70 pieces of candy that were sold across the time period, you are sure to get a big hug for this one. Though their dentist may not thank you, this is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.
Hidden outdoor patio bar
Next on my list of gifts for the impossible man, it’s a hidden outdoor patio bar. This is a great gift for any guy who loves spending time in his garden and entertaining guests. It’s a side table for the patio, with a hidden ice cooler and beer / wine stash inside. I don’t know a man who wouldn’t love this – it’s such a great crowd pleaser, and it’s useful too!
It’s something most men wouldn’t think to buy for themselves too – which make it even better!
Turntable / record player
I absolutely love this as a gift for the impossible man. It’s such a cool mix between nostalgia / vintage style / gadgets – it really has everything. Honestly – just look how cool this is – a modernized record player, that looks super flashy and adds a touch of class to any space. It’d look amazing in an office, or in a home study. Perfect for the man who has everything. As far as gifts for the impossible man go – I think this is a front runner!
Back and neck massager
Next on my list of gifts for the impossible man, it’s a back and neck massager! It is no surprise that as we get older, we tend to experience more aches and pains, so my next suggestion for gifts for the impossible man would be a massager.
If you’ve heard increased complaints of neck or back pain, this back and neck massager might just be the perfect gift, and it’s something they probably wouldn’t think to buy themselves. With no setup required and super easy to figure out, this is a hassle-free gift that will pay dividends with increased mobility and general health.
Bose Noise Cancelling headphones
I don’t know about you, but the men in my life totally geek about headphones and tech. It doesn’t matter their age, or their style – or even their interests… Almost all men appreciate a good pair of headphones. Whether they’ll use it for listening to music, exercising, on planes when travelling, listening to podcasts, or just in bed when watching TV… Headphones are the ultimate ‘please everyone’ gift – so they’re ideal as gifts for the impossible man.
In my opinion, Bose are the BEST headphone brand, their quality, comfort and style is just head and shoulders above any other brand, so that’s the brand I would opt for above any others. I’ve linked my favorite pair of Bose headphones in the link above.
Dad, I want to hear your story
Sometimes, memories truly are timeless, and the perfect gifts for the impossible man, are actually the simplest. How many times have you wished that you had a record of stories from generations past? With this book, you will actually be gifting something to the whole family. With guided questions that encourage sharing childhood, teen and adult stories, this book will quickly be filled up. We can almost guarantee that this isn’t something that would be purchased for oneself, so it makes the perfect option for gifts for the impossible man.
The Original Toilet Night Light
OK, this next suggestion is a bit weird – but I think any guy would love the novelty (and usefulness) of this gift. Yes it a bit odd, but bear with me! This is the kind of thing you didn’t realise you needed until you have it – and it’ll definitely make you all laugh and giggle when they unwrap it! I think this is a great choice for gifts for the impossible man – and it’s funny too!
As you get older, you visit the toilet more during the night – and the glowing Original Toilet Night Light actually proves incredibly useful! This is a super silly, but surprisingly useful gift. And it’s definitely a top contender for gifts for the impossible man.
LEGO: Ship in a bottle set
Next on my list of gifts for the impossible man… it’s LEGO! Chances are, your dad / grandad / husband / friend grew up playing with LEGO (and most guys have a love for LEGO regardless of their age). So if he still has good use of his hands (this isn’t ideal for those who suffer with hand / joint issues, as it might be tricky to assemble).
But if they still have use of their hands, then this is a pretty epic gift – and it’s something that’ll keep them busy for hours (or days). It’s entertaining, fun, and has that really cool nostalgic feeling to it which anyone would love.
Activity book for adults
The next idea on my list of gifts for the impossible man, is an activity book!
With age comes an increased level of thumb-twiddling and, occasionally, mind numbing boredom! As the mind still requires regular exercise as we get older, this activity book for adults is both a challenging and interesting way to keep the mind occupied. With a great range of puzzles that promises to keep one busy for hours on end, it is a great gift for the 70-year-old who has everything and wants for nothing.
And finally on my list of gifts for the impossible man it’s a kitchen gadget! If your impossible man is a bit of a kitchen-nerd and loves his kitchen gadgets, then this is going to be a hit. This cereal dispenser is a cool kitchen gadget that makes breakfast time even more efficient and enjoyable. OK, so it might not be the most glamorous and flashy gift – but any gadget loving guy is going to appreciate the thought behind this one for sure!
