Top 3 Gift Ideas for Men that are Vertically Challenged

I refuse to make some pun about size not mattering. Let’s face it, nobody’s perfect - and if your biggest problem is your height, then you’re in pretty good shape.

Today’s blog is just 3 simple gift ideas for any short man you may be looking to buy a gift for. Maybe its a boyfriend or husband, or perhaps another man who happens to be on the shorter side and who you want to buy something nice for.

1.Get him clothes that fit.

Enough of this “custom clothiers” taking your money, claiming to have high quality (they’re not) and that they’re the only solution out there. NONESENSE! The aptly named Under 510 makes perfect, Mensch tested-and-approved shirting, jeans, and casual wear that is perfectly proportioned to fit the short man without any alterations. The best part is that its affordable; so affordable in fact, that it will probably cost less than what you’re spending at Banana Republic for clothes that won’t fit!

2. Style for Short Guys - The Fundamentals of Men's Style (Style for Men)

I’ve learned that as a man, you can never have too many bathroom readers. Or maybe you call them coffee table books. I call them bathroom readers. And any guy would love a book about style to read while he’s in his “study.” Style for Short Guys by James Gallichio is a great read specializing on how to properly optimize clothing on a short man to make him look and feel taller.

3. Get some lifts damnit!

At the end of the day, a little extra height can make a big difference in the impression you make and confidence you feel. Amazon has a lot of different options for inserts, but I wouldn’t recommend anything over 1 inch just because it can lead to balance issues. Here is a great example of some.

There you have it! If you have any other no-brainer recommendations for gifts for shorter guys, please drop a comment below! Links are always appreciated!
