Men can be tricky to buy for… Usually because if they want something, chances are, they’ve already gone out and bought it for themselves. Which is why it’s always safer to give an experience instead of a gift. And it just so happens we have plenty of experiences that make the perfect gift they’re bound to love.
If you’ve got a revhead on your hands, you can’t go wrong with gifting them a V8 experience. They can get behind the wheel, or are sit back and let the professionals take the reins on a hot lap experience. Either way, they’ll be reaching speeds of up to 200kmp/h on some of the best race tracks around Australia. It’s the ultimate thrill ride!

If he’s more interested in the style of the car, rather than how fast it goes, you could always gift him a luxury car hire experience. Don’t get us wrong, there’s still plenty of opportunities to put the pedal to the metal in a Lamborghini. But those wanting a more relaxed Sunday drive could always opt for a 1965 Ford Mustang convertible or a GT500 Mustang.
Looking for the perfect gift for someone who loves their beer? A brewery tour will go down a treat. You could always take things to the next level and gift them the chance to brew their own beer in a microbrewery? If he’s more of a wine guy, there are plenty of wine tastings available, browse the full range here.
How many times, have you been having a BBQ and thought, “You know what? This would be even better if we were on a boat”. Well, we can now make that dream come true. Yep, BBQ boats are a thing and are a great way to celebrate a birthday with family and friends.
Speaking of cooking BBQs, a cooking class can also be a great gift idea. From pizza and pasta making classes to Mexican and margaritas, there’s something to suit all tastes. Plus, this is the gift that keeps on giving, as hopefully, you’ll get to enjoy the benefits of their new skills in the kitchen!

This is obviously for the thrill seekers. Gift them the chance to free fall from up to 15,000ft! Talk about giving them the chance to tick something off their bucket list. This is a great option to go in with a couple of friends for a milestone birthday from 21st through to 60th birthdays!
The truth is, everyone loves a good pamper session. So, while it might not always be the first thought to come to mind, spa and wellness experiences can make for great birthday gifts for men.
Do they love spending time on the water? Treat them to a deep-sea fishing safari, sailing cruise or even a private boat hire experience. If they haven’t quite found their sea legs, but still love to fish there are 4WD beach fishing tours available!
Imagine flying over Sydney Harbour or taking in the incredible views over the Great Barrier Reef. A helicopter flight is an awesome gift idea. If you’re looking for something with added fear-factor, there’s always a doors-off option – perfect for those who want to feel like they’re in an action movie.
Having trouble deciding which experience they’d like best? Why not just let them decide?! With a RedBalloon gift voucher they can choose from over 5000 experiences – so you can’t go wrong. All the glory, none of the pressure! It’s a win-win.
Think outside the (gift) box.
Gift them something that's not electronic!
All the birthday gift inspo you need.
