On May 25th was Father’s Day. The moment to think about a suitable gift for men. However, even after this significant day, there are always opportunities to gift the men in our lives – be it for a birthday, an anniversary, or just that. But what is appropriate here? Just as there are now a lot different give aways for women Some clever minds have come up with gift ideas for men as well. And here are often outdoor and adventure in the foreground. Example: With a quad it goes on guided tours sometimes in the area. And those who have always wanted to feel several hundred horsepower under the hood, is not necessarily on the road with a super sports car. Sometimes tank driving is just more fun.
Quad tours: adventure on four wheels
Off Road on four wheels – who does not dream of it as a man. Quads are a leisure trend that started a few years ago. At first glance, the quads are reminiscent of a combination of motorcycle and car. Due to the special design and the tires, these are ideal all-terrain vehicles.
From the work tool, the quad has become a pleasure in the meantime. Professionally organized tours are now available almost everywhere – and are an ideal gift for men who always want to be away from the road. Depending on the price, the driving time varies. Tip: A highlight are real tours, which lead not only on a suitably prepared course, but in the closer environment.
Tank Driver: Tank drive without Kasernenhofton
In Germany, military service was suspended in 2011. Since 2011, young adults have de facto no longer been required to complete the Bundeswehr and basic military training. Understood by some as a reaction to the zeitgeist and the changing threat situation, men have one thing that lasts for years – the fascination with the heavy equipment. Protective and battle tanks or the anti-aircraft artillery vehicles still cause amazement.
Excavator driving in the leisure time is no longer a problem today. But climb into a tank and drive the monster through the terrain? What was a real niche a few years ago and was often ridiculed has become more and more of a trend. Even if nobody really wants to experience tanks in action: anyone who has been allowed to drive the monsters with several tons of weight and a few hundred horsepower “under the hood” once through the terrain is impressed.
Meanwhile, tank rides are not only offered on vehicles of the former Eastern Bloc. Even military vehicles of the Bundeswehr or the Wehrmacht have found their way into the arsenal of providers. Among them are:
– the armored personnel Marder
– the anti-aircraft Cheetah
– the main battle tank M48
– the Jagdpanzer StuG III.
This very special gift costs between 150 euros to 400 euros. The motto is: The more expensive the pleasure, the more unusual the whole thing. Instead of 60 minutes, the trips go here quickly 3 hours to 4 hours – and there are different vehicles driven.
Whiskey tasting – discovering a passion
Water of Life – gourmets will know by now what it’s all about. We are talking about whiskey (whiskey, depending on spelling). Although whiskey is mentioned only in the 15th century. Whiskey is likely to have been much earlier. Today he will be in:
– Ireland / Northern Ireland
manufactured. However, these traditional whiskey producers have been competing in recent years. Even in Germany, some distilleries specialize in spirits. How does a high-quality whiskey taste? Anyone who has ever dealt with this question will have stumbled across whiskey tasting. The latter are not only a perfect way to delve into the world of whiskey – with the help of experts. The tastings also offer the chance to learn one or the other trick. Beispielswiese still believes that whiskey is always drunk from a tumbler (glass with a thick bottom) and on ice. Real connoisseurs are sure that more than a cold shiver runs down the back in this type of whiskey drinking.
Oldies & Goldies: Traveling with classic cars
The car is the man’s dearest child – this credo is no coincidence. And that’s why cars are often taken care of. The love of some car fans goes so far that the cars of the child and youth time are particularly well received. Of course we are talking about classic cars – cars that are at least 30 years old.
Some classics are particularly popular among car fans – like one
– Ford Mustang (built in 1964 to 1973)
– Alfa Romeo Spider
– Corvette Stingray etc.
The problem: The value of a classic car can (compared to the introductory price) may rise by a few hundred percent. The most expensive classic cars cost – as the media reports say about the newspaper ” world “Read – quickly ten million euros and more.
For men, the “extension” with vintage cars is so fast expensive. The alternative are trips with the oldies – such as a Ford Mustang – which are also offered today as a gift certificate.
Conclusion: With these gifts, men have fun
Often it remains with gifts for the friend, husband, father, grandfather, uncle or brother with trifles. Why not just think something bigger – and merge, for example, birthday and Christmas – to make the partner a really special gift. Who can claim to have been on the road with a classic like the Ford Mustang or a classic car among the main battle tanks – an M48? Experience gifts are often worth more than other gifts, which then disappear in the closet or be sorted out again after a short time. There are certainly enough ideas. The challenge is to choose the right give away. After all, every person is different and has corresponding preferences and wishes. Anyone who knows his partner well enough, however, will hardly have any major problems.
