But maybe your plan was to do something... get him something better than that. So, here are Cater-Hater's Birthday Party Gift Ideas for Men...
Birthday party gift... make it a personal, fun experience -If he's a wine drinker and fancies himself to be a wine aficionado, take him to a local winery for a wine tasting session. If it's in your budget, plan the ultimate winery experience... a trip to Napa Valley, California. You want to make it really special for him? Accompany him for his special birthday outing. He will appreciate that you've taken the time to align your interests and tastes with his.
Custom birthday party gift... plan an abduction experience -This can go a few different ways... depending on how elaborate you'd like to get with your plans. The "abduction" style birthday gift can involve a plan for a day, three days, a week... whatever your wallet can afford. You can do something as simple as make dinner reservations at a premier steak house or any other restaurant of his choice (you will impress him more if you go with him and don't like it).
Stop by that infamous bar that you've both heard so much about. When he's over worked, give him four lazy day passes to take the stress off; so he will do what he wants and unwind.
Birthday party gift idea... make it an affordable experience -Most guys would never admit it, but they know when you've bought them something and didn't put a lot of thought into it. When you don't have a lot of cash to spend you'd be better off spending hours upon hours rummaging through every old vinyl record at your local area weekend flea market (better still, if you live in California take a trek to the famous Pasadena Flea Market they have every weekend. Phenomenal!).
While you're flea marketing and possibly even antiquing, look for cool stuff he'd really like (that you might think is kind of ridiculous) such as, vintage baseball cards, comic books, old college pennants, antique cameras, postcards from out-of-the-way places, old clocks, vintage wool shirts and flannel shirts, sporting equipment, belt buckles, old trunks and suitcases, and old black and white photographs that would only speak to him (mean something of importance to him).
Birthday party gift favorite... the upgrade experience -Almost every guy I know doesn't like to spend much money on themselves. And, that's where you come in. Knowing this gives you a head start.
Go through his closet and take a look at his favorite belts. Choose one and upgrade it, opting for the same belt made in a better leather or snakeskin.
Upgrade his favorite tee-shirts buying him a few of the same, only in 100% silk (he'll like the way that it feels against his skin)
Most men aren't hung up on petty details like some females are, which means they're oftentimes easier to shop for than women. There are a slew of birthday party gift ideas for men that I know I've forgotten. Leave a comment and share one that you've thought of, that I've missed that you would have added to this post.

I do this... I write to help to create to opportunities for all who choose to pursue their passion to have parties almost irregardless regard to economic constraints.
I think if we keep talking about the cost of parties (I write blog posts, you write comments), together, maybe we can break down some of the party industry's price barriers and shame some of the people who've taken your money and delivered a poor quality product right into growing a conscious and treating you right (nice thought, huh?).
Opportunities to be inspired about parties are everywhere. Yet, people looking out for your wallet are few and far between. My goal is to inspire you, causing you to question the way things are that have been the status quo for too long. When we stand together and speak up, we can be a powerful force.
Let's keep the conversation of change going. Because in the sea of everyone talking, one voice is a whisper... several voices are a scream.
Leave a comment and share your thoughts, ideas and suggestions below. Remember to be as specific as possible because what you have to say helps us all.
Always... be encouraged and encourage others too,
