It is never an easy task finding the right gift for the man in your life, especially if he claims to be blissfully happy already. If you are searching for something that stretches the imagination further than a quick search of ‘Amazon gifts for men’ then you will be aware that when it comes to finding the perfect manly gift, it is time to get creative. A personalized sign may not be the most obvious choice for a present, but let me show you 5 reasons why a sign is among the best manly gifts that money can buy.
Personalized Signs are Manly Gifts
Why are personalized gifts the best presents you can possibly give and receive? Because, they spark such joy and happiness when they are opened and leave lasting memories that are treasured forever. The idea that someone has been thinking about your likes, interests and style is such a heartwarming notion that adds unique value to the present you receive. Sign gifts are perfect manly gifts as they can be used for a whole variety of things such as signalling the way to the ‘Man Cave’, highlighting an important date or decorating a wall with an iconic song lyric or sports club chant. And, given a durable material is chosen, they will last a lifetime if cared for correctly.
Metal Name Signs Never Go Out of Style
Make the person you love the center of attention on their special day with a customized name sign. These timeless designs add a personal touch to the home and create dazzling conversation starters. The more personal the better, so, if you are after gift ideas for men, begin to think about what makes him tick. Is he an avid gardener? Is the BBQ the altar at which he worships? Or, does he love to retreat to hisman cave when he needs his moment of zen? Name signs make great manly gifts and are so much fun to make as there are endless possibilities to play with.
Our favourite ideas include the following:
- (Their name) #1 Fan of… (the name of their favorite sports team)
- (Their name)’s Shed
- (Their name)’s Whisky Bar
- Dad’s Home Office
- Daddy’s Man Cave
- (Their name)´s Surf Shack
- Grandad’s Garden
Signs for the Home Make Wonderful Gifts for Older Men
Once you get to a certain age, there comes a point when socks or ties appear to be the small gifts of choice for manly gifts. But just because mature gentlemen prefer an armchair to a bar stool doesn’t mean that they are resigned to receiving unimaginative, bland gifts forever. Put a smile on their face and remind them of the fire that still burns strong inside of them by creating a truly personalized gift based on the tastes they have spent a lifetime cultivating. Mature men tend to be fond of the occasional tipple and often have a home bar tucked away in a nook of the house. Celebrate their passion for a quality drink and interest in mixology with a custom home bar sign, made extra special with the addition of their name. Or, perhaps your man likes to flex his golfing muscles as he perfects his hole-in-one? Allow him to feel your support for his sporting hobby and cheer him on from the living room with a personalized golf, tennis, polo, or fishing sign just for him.
- Other ways to gift a sign to the senior gentleman include:
- A customized plaque placed on top of a wooden cigar box
- A ‘Welcome to my Study’ sign
- An inspirational literary quote hand stenciled onto an enamel sign
- A sign for his workshop containing a loved saying as a tribute to the skilled craftsman
- (Their Name’s) Culinary Kingdom’ sign for the kitchen
- A personalized sign for his garage, like “Mercedes Parking ONLY”
At RAMSIGN, we believe these moments need to be treasured forever which is why our signs are all designed using porcelain enamel. They are hard wearing, tarnish resistant and can be easily hung onto all surfaces. Each sign is hand stencilled using traditional craftsmanship techniques, offering stylish Danish design for your home.
