The holidays are a great time of the year to be reminded of all the special people in your life. Sometimes it’s easy to forget all the great things that one fantastic guy does for you, so why not show him a little appreciation? If it is your husband, boyfriend, or maybe an awesome dad, it is time to give him something back for all the good he does without even asking for a thank you. And lucky for you, you can check off everything on your shopping list in Tempe!
For Mr. Outdoors, a beach cruiser or road bike is the gift that keeps on giving, or you can trick out the bike he already has with some accessories from Tempe Bicycle located on the intersection of Rural and University Roads. Tempe Bicycle has a wide variety of affordable bikes and a great selection of accessories like handlebar grips, custom seats, lighting, and cup holders. They also carry apparel like cycling shoes and jersey shirts. If your guy is a present or former Sun Devil, help him represent his favorite team all year long with gear from Cactus Sports located on Mill Avenue and Fourth Street or the Student Book Center on College, just north of University Drive.
If he has a fondness for gadgets, Best Buy located in Tempe Marketplace has a wide selection of electronics for the ultimate techie who seems to have just about everything. For music or gaming, Beats by Dr. Dre has a selection of wireless headphones and speakers that are portable and have superior sound quality. Toshiba- Smart Wi-Fi ready Blu-ray Player is not only great for watching high definition movies on Blu-ray but the Wi-Fi capability allows you to watch Netflix or Hulu Plus and listen to Pandora on your TV. Another great device is the Nook HD Tablet from Barnes and Noble in The District at Tempe Marketplace. The world’s lightest full HD 9” tablet is great for reading books, watching movies, and downloading apps that look better than ever before.
To keep the man looking sharp, Men’s Wearhouse, located in Tempe Marketplace, or the Perry Ellis Outlet at Arizona Mills have the best selections for men’s clothing that will bring out the Don Draper in any guy. Pick out a classic button down dress shirt in his favorite color that he can wear both to work and for a nice night out. Urban Outfitters on Mill Avenue is the perfect stop for something more on the casual side. A great leather jacket is always a good pick and can be versatile. They also have a great shoe selection to fit his personal style, from Sperry Top-Side Boat Shoe to the UO Leather Derby Shoe.
Show him a little extra love for the holidays this year and let him know you appreciate everything that he does for you. For more ideas about where to find that special gift, visit the Tempe Tourism Office shopping page. Happy holidays!
