What is the perfect gift for a middle-aged man? A popular meme shows a dad in his driveway working on his dirt bike. To one side, his son, about 10, is working on his mini dirt bike. Beside them, his younger son, about 4, is working on his tiny upturned electric quad. The caption reads ‘Boys don’t really grow up. Their toys just get bigger.’
That one image captures the essence of both how easy and how difficult it is to buy a gift for a middle-aged man. He is an individual who has achieved some significant milestones in life, established himself as an expert in his chosen career... but is still the same kid he has always been inside. Don’t blame him, blame this cruel world.
