It’s time to stop buying suits and ties for your conservative husband or father. They have enough of those from past birthdays and holidays. What you need to do this time around is get them something that will actually surprise them. Something that will spark a genuine feeling of excitement within them.
Even though they may brush off questions like, “What do you want for your birthday this year” or “What do you want for Christmas this year,” they always want something. People like receiving things they wouldn’t buy themselves. It’s a fact of human nature and gift-giving, and it even applies to staunch Republicans who exercise a cautious, think-first attitude.
Because you know they’re not going to treat themselves to what they really want, it’s your job to do it for them. With the holiday season fast-approaching, you can find great deals on the things mentioned below. Buy your husband or father one of these this year and you’ll see their conservative attitude traded for a liberal sense of joy.
A Video Game System
Many politicians in Washington admit that playing video games helps them relax. With video game options like Call of Duty, a video game system is the perfect way to help your conservative man add excitement to his days. Giving your father the ability to fight terrorists at home and abroad with a team of highly trained soldiers is now a possibility.
Recommended systems include the Xbox 360, PS3 and new PS4. The Wii system is also a good option if your husband or father needs a way to burn some energy in a fun, interactive way.
The Best Damn Mini-Series Ever Made
Many conservative people have a fascination with military history. Some even wish they had the chance to be part of the greatest American battles every fought. With these mini-series from HBO, they can experience America’s greatest military endeavors.
- Band of Brothers: a 10-part mini-series by Tom Hanks and Stephen Spielberg about the US Army 101st Airborne division and its incredible journey of hope and loss in WWII.
- The Pacific: a 10-part mini-series by the same people who produced Band of Brothers. Depicts the battle fought in the Pacific by following the lives of an honorable group of marines and friends.
Watching these series will make your man feel part of one of our country’s greatest historical missions. Some episodes will even inspire tears.
A Classy, Fully-Loaded Gun Safe
Is your husband or father a hunter, a gun hobbyist, or a sports shooter? If so, there are probably few objects they care more about than their guns. If they skimped and bought a mediocre gun safe, you have the opportunity to complement their hobby this year with something more deserving.
To replace the gun safe they currently have (or don’t have), buy a gun safe by Pentagon. These guys make some of the best gun safes in the biz. With a 33-year drill-proof record, this is the only safe for your husband or father.
Instead of going after that new suit or suitcase, add some creative flavor to your gift-giving. When you present one or more of these gifts to your conservative hubby or dad this year, you’ll see a new kind of smile on his face.
