It starts with facial hair, a heavy skull and broad shoulders. Add an Adam’s apple, a coarser skin texture and a deep voice and what do you get? A man! They come in all shapes and sizes, and have been referred to as great hunters, protectors and rulers of the world.
Being familiar with this you have the advantage that can lead to great gift ideas. Like women, men have birthdays, graduate, get promoted; they love Christmas, Father’s Day and what not.
They all have different personalities therefore they all need different gifts. One may be macho so can think of a perfume or a lifting weights, while another does not mind staying at home watching the kids. One is crazy about sports - you can get him some of sport equipment like running shoes. There is no rhyme or reason to their likings, yet when it comes to certain aspects of life they all seem to agree. A perfect example would be anything related to motors. Be it in an airplane, boat or race car, if it is loud and fast it will come up in a male conversation.
If you are confronted with one of these occasions and are still looking for that unique gift, the following may help. It seems that, for unknown reason, every man dreams of owning his own billiard table. Whatever the attraction may be, men like to spend countless hours practicing their skills and concentration just to make that one perfect shot.
So ladies, here are a few pointers to take in account when you finally decided to buy your “hunk of loving” that one table, he would never ever leave in a mess.
• Measure the room intended for the table so you know exactly how much space you have for the piece, as well as leaving ample room for queue movement and an occasional victory dance!
• Determine your budget and do your research. Sometimes you can buy a hardly used table for way less than a brand new one and with a quick clean-n-shine he may not even notice the difference.
• Learn about the table construction features and decide which are important and affordable. What do you know about the playing surface, the consistency of the cloth, the rails and the cushions? What do you know about the brand’s reputation?
• Depending on your house/room entrance your piece can arrive assembled, but in some cases you may need an in-house assembly. Make sure you are handy or know someone else who can handle tools. If worse comes to worse you can always hire an installer authorized by a major billiard company.
One last piece of advice: care for your table properly and it will last an entire lifetime, just like your man!
