But lucky for you, KnowInsiders is a gift expert and have curated the perfect ideas.

Here are 9 thoughtful gifts for your "big son" on the coming International Men's Day:

#1. A tree for a change - Thoughtful Gifts for Son

In other words, think outside the tangible: instead of a physical present, consider a donation to a charity, a gift given in honour or memory of someone special, etc. Trees for a Change is a great organization to consider “gifting” your adult child.

You dedicate a tree in their name, and it will be planted in a U.S National Forest that has been devastated by wildfire. Your loved one will receive a certificate or card letting them know of your thoughtful gift.

#2. Mark 12:30 wood scripture plaque- Thoughtful Gifts for Son

The words of Christ from Mark 12:30 are engraved with careful precision into the wood of this stunning Scripture plaque from Northwest Gifts. Personalization of your child’s family name, est. date and the floral background will make for a beautiful, meaningful addition to any room in their home.

This plaque is available in two different sizes and comes ready to hang. See here for more wood Scripture plaques, or to customize your own.

#3. Experience or getaway- Thoughtful Gifts for Son

Experiences are all the rage these days. So it goes without saying that experience gifts are also very in right now, and don’t appear to be going away any time soon.

Give your adult child the gift of an experience, and you’re really gifting them new memories that will last them for the rest of their lives.

Tinggly makes an experience a super easy thing to give by offering what they call gift boxes. Each box comes with a plethora of options for your son or daughter to pick from, from horseback riding on the beach in the UK to surfing lessons in Santa Cruz.

There really is a little something for everybody!

#4. Hopped up coffee gift box- Thoughtful Gifts for Son

It’s a fact of nature that once you’re grown, you love coffee (or tea, or kombucha or… you know, caffeine). So if your adult daughter or son is a big fan of coffee, you already know they’ll really appreciate something like this gift idea. The Hopped Up Coffee gift box contains speciality grounds hand-blended by coffee connoisseurs. Mimicking the crisp flavours of malted beverages, each sampler is full of body and a slight kick.

Four flavours are included per gift box: Chocolate Stout, Black IPA, Winter Warmer, and Scottish Ale.

#5. Lessons- Thoughtful Gifts for Son

We all no matter age have dreamed about maybe dancing, singing, tennis or some kind of lesson. You are never too old to learn.

According to The Enchanted Home, whether it’s gifting a series of lessons or maybe even a class to a loved one, this is not only unique but a perfect excuse to actually get out there and try something instead of talking about it! All boys will be the recipient of this gift. There are things that we know they enjoy or have enjoyed, and the gift of lessons is going to give them that chance to rediscover something they loved or have been interested in!

#6. Custom portrait print- Thoughtful Gifts for Son

When in doubt, turn to art! ‘Cause with a little creative help, gifts for adult children aren’t hard at all to find (or make). Here is a wonderful example: This stunning portrait print, as cited by All Gift Considered.

You send the artist all the elements of the mom-daughter/mom-son portrait you want to be created (hair colour, body type, skin tone, etc.) and they’ll create a lovely reminder of your close-knit relationship in the art form.

It’s a gift your grown child will always treasure.

Choose between digital download or printed copy, and be sure to get a nice frame for it.

#7. Personalized Whiskey decanter set- Thoughtful Gifts for Son

A nice decanter set is a classic gift and something that your kids will be able to use for years. And when it comes personalized like this one (with name and date), it’s even better.

#8. Custom engraved Glencairn glass- Thoughtful Gifts for Son

This idea makes a great accompaniment gift to the whiskey decanter set (#7) mentioned above.

This high-quality (made in the USA) custom-engraved Glencairn glass will feature your child’s name in your choice of four different fonts. It’s dishwasher safe and holds up to 6 ounces of whiskey, bourbon, or anything else.

#9. UV portable sanitizer- Thoughtful Gifts for Son

The era we’re living in dictates that we do whatever we can to minimize contact with harmful germs. UV sanitation (officially referred to as ultraviolet germicidal irradiation, learn more here) is starting to gain traction as a way to keep schools, hospitals and even homes clean.

We all know that our phones harbour a ton of disgusting germs, and should probably be the first thing we clean at the start and end of each day.

By using this HoMedics UV portable sanitizer to clean their phone, your child will be taking extra precaution to keep not only themselves but everyone else around them healthy.
