A gift is often a surprise. But sometimes it isn’t exactly pleasant. How men react to gifts has everything to do with the gift itself.

Surprise Gifts for Men

Set of classical music CDs for metal fan: He may want to LOL, or grimace, depending on his sense of humour. But good behaviour dictates otherwise and a Straight Face is what your off-the-mark gift will most likely be met with.

A cheap tee for the style-conscious man: Sure, it’s the thought that counts. But according to the rules of gifting, you’re not allowed to appear like a cheapskate when you give a gift. Your ‘bought online at a bargain’ will elicit a Disgusted Face, nothing else.

Clocks, photo frames and other ‘meh’ things: You know you should have put a little more effort into picking a gift, but settled for the nearest thing. Impersonal, functional objects are usually received with the Okay Face. It’s just about okay, is what it means.

Chocolates for the weight-watcher: Gifting requires that you know the recipients tastes and lifestyle. Gift-wrap calories for the fitness freak and there’s little chance they’ll be consumed. Your gift will be received with a Polite Face, but won’t evoke any pleasure.

Scotch for the man with fine taste: Want to ensure your gift is received with a Delighted Face. Look no further than a great bottle of Scotch. Hits the spot, every time!
