|Forget The Mundane - Get a Gadget For Him|
This is look at how technology has produced a range of gadgets to replace the standard of tired old gifts that were always previously the normal 'presents without need for thought'
The Days of Mundane Presents For Him Are Gone
When I was young, I remember that coming up to Christmas or my Fathers Birthday my Mother would get me to help her wrap up a present for my Dad. Back then it was something like some handkerchiefs, some socks and pants, a new garish tie or something similar. That was the type of mundane small gift that Dads got back then. Maybe these were appreciated, maybe they were tolerated. Who knows. Maybe expectations were lower in days gone by.
How times have changed and I think for the better. Maybe not for the handkerchief manufacturers, but certainly for the receiving men. The latest gadgets are the new must have gift. Gadgets dominate the present lists. Computer games consoles, mobile phones, MP3’s, MP4’s are all top of the agenda. Ask a young boy or girl what they want for Christmas and I bet the aforementioned products will feature on every one. Get a gift for you Mum or a gift for your wife and many of these gadgets will feature in their requests
Even though new gadgets have now become the new vogue for women, I think that gadgets for men as a gift or present have a higher importance somehow. As part of their genetic make up, men like toys even in adulthood. ‘Boys Toys’ can be anything from the latest hand-held gadgets to much larger things such as the latest VW Golf GTI. Men love to have all the extras on their cars to impress their counterparts and are thrilled to produce the latest iPhone to show off their technological prowess
These big ‘Boys Toys’ gadgets are too expensive as small gift to Fathers from their children, but a whole plethora of small gadget accessories are required to make them complete. Now kids across the world are helping their Mums wrap up presents that contain very affordable gadgets that will bring a smile to their Fathers face
