Best Birthday Gift Ideas for Your Husband

By Tara Thomas , last updated November 2, 2011

Finding the best birthday gift for your husband is one of those situations that can either be a slam dunk, or much harder than it should be. Whether your partner is the proverbial 'man who has everything' or someone who has always been easy to shop for, below are some birthday gift ideas your husband will love!

For the Sports Fan

Sports fans love their teams and support them passionately. Chances are you're well aware of your husband's favorite team. Purchase him memorabilia from certain players, good seats to a home game or any number of team-inspired gear like hoodies, shot glasses or license plate frames. Wrap everything up in team spirit wrapping paper and your gift is complete. When buying any type of sports memorabilia, collector items and especially anything signed, be sure to do your homework first and only buy from a reputable source to avoid purchasing fraudulent merchandise.

For the Golfer

While getting golf gifts for a golfer may seem a tad cliché, the truth is, golf lovers enjoy thoughtful gifts that show an interest or acknowledgment of their passion. Personalized golf balls, golf bags and polo shirts all make fantastic gift choices for your husband's birthday. Surprise him with golf lessons or a round of golf at an exclusive country club. If you typically don't join your husband on his golf outings, write up a cute coupon where you offer to be his caddy or drive the golf cart for a round of golf.

For the Outdoorsman

Outdoor lovers often have a wide variety of interests. Camping, hiking, fishing, hunting or skiing are all outdoor activities that provide you with lots of gift buying opportunities. A subscription to an outdoors magazine, a gift certificate to a store such as REI or experiential gifts like a kayaking trip or zipline adventure will have your mate beaming from ear to ear. In conversation, find out what new gear your outdoorsman wants or need. Find out as much information as you can and be sure to keep the receipt in case you need to return it.

For Pit Master

Men who love to grill or barbeque, really love to grill or barbeque. Few things will make the pit master in your life happier than a few grill-related gifts. Gift baskets may not seem manly, but nothing could be further from the truth. Tuck an assortment of grilling sauces, spice rubs, recipe books, flavor injectors and grilling tools into a gift vessel. A medium sized metal tub works great to arrange your gift items. When everything is removed, the tub can then be filled with ice and used to keep drinks chilled. You can also place the same items into a small, unused, portable grill for an all-in-one gift.

Finding the best birthday gifts for your husband takes a little paying attention and a lot of doing your homework, but the effort is well worth the enjoyment of a thoughtful gift. Go with his likes and bring a smile to his face on his birthday with your well thought out gift.
