The Basic T-Shirt

 

Certain people might look down on the basic t-shirt. It may be plain-looking, but its simplicity is also its main selling point. Many men don’t want fancy things by the time they hit the age of 40. With a basic shirt, those men can now gain access to different fashion combinations.

It’s essential to know which basic t-shirt to give. Before buying a shirt to give as a present, consider these factors:

  • Fit – Make sure the t-shirt fits well for the person who’s going to wear it. The tightness shouldn’t be too baggy or too tight. Also, the length of the hem shouldn’t go over the hips. Still, it should cover the waistband. If the shirt is too short, then the guy who’ll wear the shirt will risk exposing his midriff.
  • Neckline – Most t-shirts for men come with two neckline classes: the crew neck and the V-neck. Each variant comes with pros and cons. For instance, the crew neck collar is ideal for men who have a slightly muscular build. On the other hand, V-necks are great for shorter men because it gives the illusion of extra height.
  • Fabric/Material – If you’re having difficulty choosing a basic shirt for a 40-year-old man, the essential 100% cotton is a suitable choice. Natural cotton is fresh, soft, and static-resistant. Also, this material can look and feel great on the wearer. Still, your choice may depend on the lifestyle of the person receiving the gift. For example, if you’re giving a basic shirt to a guy who likes to exercise, then cotton may not be the best option. Instead, opt for Dri-FIT fabrics.

Wine

 

A wine bottle or a wine set can become an excellent gift for a 40-year-old man. This beverage is a favorite among many men of different age groups. The wine you give may contain various health benefits. Also, it’s an excellent gift for any occasion.

You can open a bottle of wine to help celebrate any momentous event. For example, give a man who’s close to your heart a good wine bottle or set if he’s received a promotion from work. Otherwise, you can pour wine to your man’s glass for his 40th birthday.

Drinking wine may even become a recreational act. Therefore, you may not need an occasion to drink wine. If you need an opportunity to celebrate with a guy in your life, perhaps you can rejoice about the good life.

A Wristwatch

 

Do you know a 40-year-old man who’s always on the move? If so, perhaps a wristwatch can become an excellent gift to give. Wristwatches are a timeless classic (no pun intended). It’s a fashionable and functional accessory that many people, especially men, don’t mind wearing. 

Wearing a wristwatch has several benefits, regardless of age or gender. These advantages include:

  • Accountability – Wristwatches help people tell time. So, it fits any person irrespective of profession. 40-year-old men who are pilots, stockbrokers, home designers, and stay-at-home dads may need a timepiece sitting on their wrists.
  • Fewer Distractions – Specific individuals might think that a wristwatch is no longer a need. Checking the current time is now considered to be comfort with a quick view of a smartphone’s screen. However, checking the phone may also result in looking at other notifications. The act can cause distractions, which may be unhealthy for specific people. Instead, checking the time on a wristwatch helps prevent those distractions from manifesting.
  • Fashionable – Many wristwatches are marks of great style. Several 40-year-old men adhere to excellent style, and having watches on their wrists can help boost their fashion quotient to the next level.

If the 40-year-old man already owns various wristwatches, consider giving him a watch box instead. Search for a high-quality watch box that looks and feels durable.

A Leather Wallet

 

A leather wallet is an ideal present for minimalist men. The leather wallet helps combine two everyday practicalities of life, which are storing currency and mobile power. It’s also a discrete accessory but an essential piece to any man’s life. 

Various leather wallets help people carry cash and cards. Specific wallets may even have extra pockets. With these additional compartments, the receiver of this present may also put pictures in their wallets. It reminds the guy of what’s most important to them in their lives. For example, many 40-year-old men are living happily-married lives. So, you can give a leather wallet with a storage area for pictures for the guy to put pictures of his spouse or family.

A Portable Bluetooth Speaker

 

The 40-year-old man in your life may be fond of listening to music. However, lugging around large audio components may not be ideal for specific occasions. Instead, a portable Bluetooth speaker helps satisfy this need 

If you’re looking for the best Bluetooth speaker for that 40-year old guy, consider these factors before buying:

  • Wireless Capability – All Bluetooth speakers can connect to specific audio sources wirelessly. However, certain models can do this task better than other units. Check the wireless range of the Bluetooth speaker to see if the device is suitable for small or large rooms.
  • Battery Life – Is the person who’s going to receive the Bluetooth speaker fond of listening to music for hours? If so, consider buying a unit with long battery life. Many Bluetooth speakers are capable of continuous audio-playback for four hours on a single charge. However, speakers with long battery lives are excellent choices for many audiophiles. 
  • Durability – Specific Bluetooth speaker models are susceptible to damages after falls. Consider a unit with a tough shell, and perhaps even a waterproof casing if the receiver of this present likes to go to areas with water. 

Last, don’t forget about the maximum volume offered by the device. A good Bluetooth speaker may provide a louder volume than the average smartphone. Consider buying a loud portable speaker for a 40-year-old man who likes to listen to their favorite tunes while working on projects at home or the office. 

The gifts mentioned in this post are but a few of the many great presents to give to 40-year-old men. Other examples may include power tools, tie bars, headphones, outdoor gear, and skincare. Consider the guy’s fashion sense before buying the right gift for him. Also, think of the person’s personality when determining the perfect present. After all, you want that particular person to be happy as soon as he opens the gift you gave. You might even ask him what he likes, so you’ll have an idea of the item to give as a present.
