Gifts that start with R for adults

If you are looking for a gift that starts with the letter R, you have a lot of options to choose from. Here are some ideas to help you narrow down your search:

Raclette grill

Raclette is a fun party accessory popular in European countries. Now, the fun is starting in the U.S.! The basic idea is to start with a table of raw meats and vegetables that can be grilled on the top surface, while melting special “raclette” cheese in pull-out trays below.

The meltable cheese is then poured over the grilled food. It works best in a group of 4-6 people. Think of fondue parties – you can only fit so many people around the fondue pot.

Rash Guard

A rash guard is a type of athletic shirt that is designed to protect the skin from rashes, abrasions, and other irritations that can occur during water sports or other outdoor activities. These shirts are typically made from a stretchy, moisture-wicking fabric that is quick-drying and lightweight, and they often feature a UPF rating to protect the skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays.

Rash guards are commonly used for activities such as surfing, swimming, snorkeling, and paddleboarding, and they can also be worn for other outdoor activities such as hiking or running.

Rash guards come in a variety of styles, including short-sleeve, long-sleeve, and even full-body designs, and they are available for both men and women. They are a popular choice for anyone who wants to stay comfortable and protected while enjoying outdoor activities.

RJ Hampson coloring books

R.J. Hanson is a rising star in coloring books. According to his Amazon author profile:

With a background in illustration and graphic design, R. J. Hampson brings a unique blend of creative thought to his work in both traditional and digital media but is happiest when he tells a story.

Originally known as the author and illustrator of the Bunyip Tree series of children’s books, Russell writes: “I was intrigued by the machines in my local Australia Post mail center and was inspired to draw them. This became the seed that inspired my first illustrated children’s book which features a kangaroo, called Roopert, who delivers the mail.

And in 2020, Russell decided to release some of his more fanciful illustrations as a series of coloring books.

Rocketbook Fusion

The Rocketbook concept: an eco/environment friendly, RE-USEABLE notebook. It works by converting handwritng to digital text that can be transferred to the cloud. Taking a picture of it with a smartphone can transfer your note page to any storage platform you wish.

Notes are then wiped away with a damp cloth and the blank page is ready to accept a new note, doodle, or idea.

Users love Rocketbooks because they mimics the more natural notetaking feel of writing on paper. When compared to other digital devices such as an iPad, the Rocketbook proves quicker and easier to jot down a note rather than turning on a device.

There are a few models and versions of the Rocketbook, so do your homework before investing in this as a gift.

Gifts that start with R for her

When it comes to finding the perfect gift for a special woman in your life, it can be challenging to know where to start. Fortunately, there are plenty of great gift ideas that start with the letter “R.” Here are some ideas to get you started:

R13 jeans

Give the gift of the world’s most expensive jeans (like $1,000!). Wow. Just had to throw this in. I found a women’s R13 on Amazon north of $425. If you’re living on a gifting budget (and who isn’t?) just print out the jeans and stick them in a gift envelope – all in good gest, of course.

I encourage you to visit the R13 website to see the unbelievable prices yourself. Not sure why the men’s clothes cost more than the women’s clothes.

Again, this one’s purely entertainment. I’m good with my Levi’s!

Rubber rings for women

Silicone rubber rings are popular and practical. Rubber ring “stand ins” allow a woman to wear inexpensive rubber rings in place of more expensive jewelry. Often, wearing a rubber ring is only for those times when a woman is active, gardening, or in professions such as the food industry.

Swimming is a perfect time when women prefer rubber rings to real jewelry. There may even be regulations that don’t allow real jewelry.

Women also prefer to wear rubber rings for everyday in place of an expensive wedding and/or engagement ring. It’s common to protect the large financial investment of a wedding ring in a safe, and where the rubber silicone ring instead.

Rubber tote bag

I LOVE these rubber tote bags, Perfect for the beach. Obviously, they’re waterproof. My daughter-in-law toted one around this summer, a gift from her mother.

It was definitely a win! The look and feel remind me of classic croc clogs. Bonus, they come in lots of color choices. To me, it’s a fun fashion accessory that is truly practical.

Gifts that start with R for him

Looking for a gift that starts with the letter R for the man in your life? Look no further! Here are some great gift ideas that are sure to impress.

Rocker switch

According to Waytek Wire, “Rocker switches are typically used in mechanical applications for automotive, machinery, and industrial installations. Often they are illuminated and offer some tactile indication of the on and off positions.”

Even though rocker switches are very practical, why not have fun with them? I know, my mind was blown, too. “Toggle switch” is another name for them and they can be found on RVs, boats, cars, ATVs, SUVs. They’re inexpensive, so make a great funny budget gift.

Beware, there does look like wiring is involved. Double-check that the switches are waterproof, especially when buying a toggle switch for marine use.

Roadside emergency car kit

Anything for a guy’s car is usually a great go-to gift exchange gift. How about giving the gift of safety? Roadside emergency car kits are something everyone should carry in their car.

Rompers for males

Rompers for males, love ’em or hate ’em. Whether you are giving them as a gag gift, or to your favorite male fashionista, it feels your need for a unique gift option for a man.

Male rompers come in lots of fun designs for parties, like U.S. themes, beach themes, laser cats and dinosaurs, and Christmas rompers.

Rompers are a hoot! It will be a guaranteed laugh when your guy opens this gift!
