Below, you will find some amazing novelty choices, which are bound to be an excellent read for your recipient.

Homer’s Odyssey Unofficial Guide

Is your recipient a big fan of the Simpsons? If so, be sure to consider Homer’s Odyssey, an Embiggered Simpsons Guide.

While getting older may feel daunting, it certainly becomes funnier with this novelty book from Everything but Flowers.

What Are the Best Book Gifts for Men?

At Everything but Flowers, there are some books that are more popular than others. Below, you will find our two bestsellers, which you could consider for your recipient’s special occasion.

The Great Australian Baking Book

Cooking and baking is no longer reserved for women, since more and more men are getting an interest in spending some quality time in the kitchen. Given this change, it is no surprise that The Great Australian Baking Book is a favourite in our books for men collection!

Inside The Great Australian Baking Book, your recipient will find countless recipes, tips, and hints, provided by some of Australia’s finest bakers. It even includes gluten-free and sugar-free treats, so there is something suitable for everyone, even those with a special diet.

Lonely Planet’s Global Beer Tour

We are not surprised that one of the most popular books for men revolves around beer. Lonely Planet’s Global Beer Tour describes the best beers, breweries, and bars from more than thirty different nations. Therefore, this book is an exquisite choice for any man with a keen interest in the world’s finest beers.

Of course, Everything but Flowers also has books that provide an in-depth overview of Australian beers. Depending on the beer preference of your recipient, you could consider one of these Australian beer books too. We even have some beer hampers with Australian beers to complement the book if you wish to do so.

Why Do Men Like Books as Gifts?

Books have been a popular Australian gift for many men, since this is a gift that can be treasured forever. Unlike some other gifts, books are made to stand the test of time, so your recipient can keep a hold of his treasured present for many years to come.

We must also mention that it is easier for customers to match a book with their recipient. There are many specialised books, which means it is more straightforward to find a specialised book for your recipient.

Humour Books

Humour books are the perfect mens gifts for those who like to read, but are also up for a joke every now and then. Some humoristic mens books that we can recommend are Zombies Have Issues, How to Swear around the World and The Man Plan.

Men who enjoy a good laugh will certainly appreciate these mens gifts and these particular mens books will definitely be in the bookshelf for a number of years.

Gourmet Books

Men who like good food and reading, will love to receive some mens books that discuss this particular topic. Mens gifts do not always have to be gourmet hampers, you can go for some educational and informative gourmet books as well.

There are a number of mens books we can recommend for this particular subject, including The Mixer’s Manual, The Gentleman’s Guide to Cocktails and Pancakes, Crepes, Waffles & French Toast.

Unusual Books

Not all mens books can be easily placed in a category and the same goes for some of the unusual books we have in our mens gifts collection. If you want to gift a truly unique book, then we can recommend Man Caves, A Pug’s Guide to Etiquette and the Shakespeare Insult Generator.

Most of the unusual books have a humoristic element, while incorporating it with history and research, so it will be quite the interesting read for the recipient.

Gift Personalisation Options

Before you buy mens books as a gift, you can choose a number of gift personalisation options before the checkout. Customers can include a message on the card. This message can contain up to 500 characters and will be created in a very professional way. However, when you enter the message on the card, do not forget to say who it is from!

Customers also get the option to choose special gift wrapping for all mens books. Professional and luxurious gift wrapping is available for the small fee of $ 5.95 and will ensure that you do not have to worry about the wrapping once the present arrives. There are many gift wrapping colours available as well, going from royal purple to chocolate brown.

All mens gifts that are purchased on Everything but Flowers come with a free gift card, but you can select other options as well. For $ 4.95, you can add a beautiful gift card of your choice, so you will not have to go shopping for cards either!
