Gifts That Start With A for Him and Her
It can be challenging to find the perfect present for guys and gals in your gift exchange. With a little creativity, you can find some fantastic gifts that start with the letter A.
Of course, Apple products are usually a fan favorite, regardless of gender.
I don’t necessarily want to say that grilling equipment is for guys only. I’m a woman and do plenty of grilling. I suggest the Alpha Grillers Instant Read Thermometer. These types of instant read thermoters are accurate and work well.
TV viewing gifts such as the Amazon Fire Stick are favorites for everyone. It also makes a wonderful family gift.
Adult-friendly gifts that start with A
Here is a list of adult-friendly gifts that start with A. There is something for everyone here – and plenty of gift ideas to point you in the right direction for the perfect gift that starts with the letter A.
Accessories starts with A! OK, that might be a tiny bit of a stretch, but who set the rules for the alphabet gift exchange?
Let’s explore all of the accessory gifts that start with the letter A:
Adult coloring book
Shame on you if you didn’t think of this! Adult coloring books have become increasingly popular in recent years, and they can be a great gift for anyone who loves to unwind and destress. You can find affordable options that feature intricate designs and patterns, as well as themed options like animals, nature, and mandalas.
If you feel comfortable with the gift recipient, splurge for some swearing coloring books (profanity coloring books). I think you know what I mean, it’s definitely not a kids coloring book.
You can even get themed coloring books, or books for special hobbies, interests, or tv shows, etc. Even if the person doesn’t color, adult coloring books fit the bill when trying to personalize a gift.
Coloring books are for everyone, regardless of gender. If you’re looking for a filler to complete a gift, slip one of these in!
“Experience” gifts are a new kind of gift giving trend. It involves gifting someone an experience insteal of material gifts that clutter lives. Adventure gifts are one type of experience gift where the user can partake in a fun adventure – how cool is that?
Amazing adventure gifts in the cool category are:
- gift certificate for a helicopter ride, such as Adrenaline Rides featuring key spots across the United States
- hot air balloon ride voucher, such as Balloons Across the Valley, Napa Valley’s Iconic Balloon Ride Company
- trip of a lifetime (such as a package trip to New York City)
There are lots of nice alcohol drinks that both men and women would enjoy. Alcohol, of course starts with the letter “A”. Stretch that idea just a bit and you have “alcohol accessories” like bottle openers, whiskey stones, or personaized beer mugs.
The gift of alcohol can be as fancy or casual as you like – a fine bottle of wine, or a favorite craft beer. I knew some creative girlfriends that made the gift challenge finding the most unusual bottle!
If you’re not sure what type of alcohol to get, consider their favorite drink or ask for recommendations from a local liquor store. Here are alcohol products that start with the letter A:
- Absolut Vodka
- Añejo Tequila
- Apple Brandy
- Amarone Wine
For a real twist, turn an alcohol gift into an “experience” gift. Backwater Spirits & More in Decorah, Iowa serves history along with equisite alcohol samples from around the U.S. and select world imports. Not only does the knowledgeable owner share the back story of many of the products on the shelves, he advises correct beverage glasses to use (and why).
Some of these specialty “wine and spirits” shops offer class nights where you can learn the art of making cocktails.
How about specialty alcohol kits? Ideas to get enthusiasts started:
Amazon Basics gifts
It dawned on me that “Amazon Basics” could be it’s on unique Christmas gift theme! It’s true, the focus here is on an alphabet gift exchange. Technically, I am adhering to the theme of gifts that start with A:
Amazon Basics Women’s Clothing
Clothing is always a great gift idea, and there are plenty of options that start with A. Consider getting him:
- Apron (men’s apron, of course!)
- Athletic shorts
- Aviator jacket
- Athletic socks
- Athletic pants
- Acid washed jeans
- Argyle sweater
- Aloha shirt
Art for the wall
Art can be a great gift to match a person’s interests, but you can run the risk that the giftee doesn’t care for it. Here are some fairly safe art ideas to give to others:
- An antique map of their favorite city
- framed photo of you together with your loved one
- framed family recipes, historical doucments
- art piece by their favorite artist
- original art by local artists
- original art of local landscape
- custom art of their pet
Don’t forget artwork for their office.
If your recipient is an artist or just loves to doodle, an art supplies set can be a great gift. You can find affordable sets that include everything from colored pencils and markers to sketch pads and paint sets.
Or choose from high-quality paintbrushes, a new sketchbook,or canvas. They’ll appreciate the thought you put into finding a gift that supports their hobbies and passions.
Sports or fitness gear is a sure win for the health nut in your life. Think running shoes, gym bags, or even yoga mats. Don’t forget techhy athletic gear like fitness trackers or Apple Watch or Fit Bits (extra points for the “A”pple Watch!).
- Athletic cup (is this a humorous gift exchange, lol!)
- Apple watch
A beautiful art print is a gift that will last a lifetime. Look for a print that speaks to your recipient’s interests or personality, whether it’s a stunning landscape, a bold abstract, or a whimsical illustration. Make sure to choose a high-quality print that will look great on their wall for years to come.
Personally, I would never pick out art and give it to another person as a gift. Art if very personal. Goofy art gift exchanges are different. Choose a kitschy object at a thrift store (or make your own), safely making a funny gift exchange on a budget.

Who doesn’t love chocolate? But instead of going for a generic box of chocolates, why not opt for something a little more special? Artisanal chocolate is made by hand in small batches, using high-quality ingredients and unique flavor combinations. It’s a thoughtful gift that shows you’ve put some extra effort into finding something special.
Assorted anything. Your recipient won’t complain, because they’ll find something in the batch they love! “Assorted” may be a bit of a stretch when it comes to gifts that start with the letter A. If there are no rules for your alphabet gift exchange, I say go for it!
Take for example, assorted tea sampler. For the tea lover in your life, an assorted tea sampler can be a great gift. You can find a variety of tea samplers that include different flavors and blends, from classic black tea to herbal and fruity options.
The point is, one big pack of food may be too much for people to get through. An assortment makes it some much more delightful. Below is a gift of favorite gifts in the “assorted” category. Note the aromatherapy candles. These are popular because it’s fun to try all the different scents and discover your favorite one!
- Assorted chocolate – the food that put “assorted” on the map
- Assorted aromatherapy candles – variety adds to the spice of life
- Arnott’s Biscuits, Assorted – can’t get too much of a good thing
- Assorted African Cichlids fish food – even fish crave variety
- Assorted Baklava box – when you just can’t choose
- Assorted Caman Jack Margaritas. – confession, I just can’t make up my mind, I want them all!
Audiobooks are a great gift for anyone who loves to read but doesn’t have a lot of time to sit down with a book. They can listen to them while commuting, exercising, or doing chores around the house. Plus, they come in a variety of genres, so you can find something for everyone.
Hey, cars need love!
The Gift Wrap-up
There is no good reason to come up empty-handed for a gift that starts with the letter A. If anything, go for an “Apple” gift exchange, or as my teacher friend calls it “Apple Crapple.” As a teacher, she has acquired a lifetime of apple-themed gifts from friends, family, and students.
…but I think you can come up with many more gift ideas that start with the letter A!
