Best Gifts for 45 Year Old Men perfect gift store

So he’s going to be 45 soon and you want to get him something special to celebrate. But what?

For some reason it seems hard to buy gifts for men. I can easily think of lots of gifts to get all my girlfriends and my female relatives, but when it comes to men, I hesitate. So I asked my husband for some ideas and he helped me make this list for you.

If you are in a hurry, here is another list of the best gifts for 45 year old men:  Gift Suggestions  

Or keep reading for my suggestions. I included gifts for all budgets. 

Sports Gifts for 45 Year Old Men

First of all, most men are into sports. Either they like to engage in them, or they like to watch them. So an easy gift is something to do with his favorite sports. But 45 is pretty special so go whole hog. Get him tickets to see his favorite team play, or his favorite player if it’s individual sports he likes. (like golf or tennis)

Or if that’s not possible, get him something that reminds him of his fave player or team, like souvenir items. A mirror for his man cave.  Or even a mug, or a key chain, or a t shirt. Here are some generic sports themed mugs for 45 year old men. (Grilling is sort of like a sport for some men!)

Or you could get him equipment for his sport. My husband is a runner and he loves it when I give him new running shoes! But if he liked golfing, I might get him new golf balls. Golfers lose those all the time so they are always welcome by golfers! I would throw in a beautiful golf shirt too!

Golf Shirts

I’m sure you get the idea. Whether it’s fishing, golfing, tennis, running, bowling, surfing, swimming or any other sport, there are cool things to get him that will enhance his sports experience!

Or what about his other hobbies? If he likes woodworking or fixing things around the house, how about a new tool? Or tool belt? Most guys like tools and gadgets of all kinds.  My husband loves art tools, because he’s an artist.

If he’s into mechanics, there are hundreds of tools he might want to fix his cars. You know your man best, these are just some ideas to get you started.
