Finding the perfect ‘man gift’

By Argie Aguja Published Nov 09, 2020 7:16 pm

Contrary to popular belief, men are pretty complex beings when it comes to receiving gifts. Your friend, dad, son, brother or significant other may express wholehearted thanks whatever present you buy them but surprising them with something is a whole other matter.

Unlike their female counterparts, men aren’t as expressive or picky about what they want. When asked, more often than not, their standard reply would be “whatever” or “anything,” leaving you with the daunting task for finding the right thing to give.

The holidays are fast approaching and November is usually the start of compiling the Christmas gift list. If you haven’t found the right stuff to make your man happy, consider these “man things” from Lazada:

Lee Basic Plain Round Neck T-Shirt

Most men aren’t as picky about their clothes as the next guy. Anything and everything wearable is fine, as long as it’s clean and comfy. A simple, round neck T-shirt is a simple, yet fitting choice for any man as it requires few decisions for wearing one. It goes well in pants, shorts and everything in between. Men usually buy them in bulk, often from the same brand, and don’t think about replacing them until they start falling apart. Check out the different colored round neck T-shirts from Lazada.
