On today’s episode of #WhatToBuy, we have guestsssss!
I have come to realize that getting gifts for the men in my life is stressssssssssssssssssss. What does he actually like? Boxers? A pack of singlets? Perfume? OMG, why can’t he have a gift list like me?!
Today, I’m focusing on Gifts for the Gents as recommended by the Gents around me.
Ken @Kokoror- Research Scientist
Our favourite nerdy nerd says he wants A pair of glasses and he’s not choosy!
The Alaroro Recommends: a neat pair from @DapMod – Nerdy can be cool too.
Enjoys: watching TV or playing music or playing TV games – sometimes in the night – without disturbing bae, my roomates or the neighbours. I don’t like using regular earphones because then I can’t also move around the house, because of all the cables. Even better would be getting two earphones for me and for bae so we can enjoy a good movie together at any time of day.
Wants: TV Wireless Headphones ($99)
The Alaroro Recommends: This one goes for $29 and you can even get two: –
@HarryItie – Media Guy and Allround super cool person
Enjoys: Movies, the internet, attending events and just generally being a cool guy!
Wants: the iPhone 6s
The Alaroro: Before I recommend sef, why does he want this though? Camera? Battery Life? Quality? I can’t afford this at the moment.
Have you heard about @PhoneTraderNG? They have really awesome deals on Apple, HTC, Samsung and Blackberry devices. If he does not mind a pre-loved device, you can always check them out
@Woulk3r – He captures moments.
Enjoys: Taking Pictures, shooting videos, editing, eating greens, playing games!
Wants: The Livescribe™ 3 smartpen and its Moleskine® Notebook ($229)
Why: Simply write on the iconic ivory-colored Moleskine pages and watch it instantly appear on your tablet or smartphone.
The Alaroro: This is such a cool gift – If you can’t afford this at the moment because exchange rates suck, I think you can save towards it. Meanwhile, get him a good notebook, customize it and add a pen!
@Sirkastiq – All round madman!
Wants: Something intangible
The Alaroro: This guy is one of the ones that give us headache. How can you not know what you want?
The Alaroro Recommends: Prayer and Fasting – Add a few random gifts for him like a clipper set + a perfume x aftershave set (have you heard that Nivea Men’s Aftershave Balm can be used as a primer, check The Fashion Engineer’s post), Shoes, Fabric etc.
All the guys that know what they want are focused on Tech-y things! Hmph! I need new friends.
There must be a Part 2 of this post! EPP ME! Dear Men of the interwebs, if you want something other than the things listed above, drop a comment and I might be able to find a cheaper alternative to recommend to the people who love you.
