Gift Guide For Tall Men

Posted on the 30 May 2019 by Rachael Dunne @WhatRachDidNext

They say that size isn’t everything right? Well, my boyfriend is tall. 6 ft 2 in tall to be precise. Which, I think is the perfect height for a man to be. I’m 5 ft 4 in so he towers over me but that’s just perfect, it makes me feel fantastic having a tall man by my side! But how I feel about his height is besides the point. I never realised how it made him feel until he brought it up a few weeks ago. Apparently, it does present a few problems, particularly when buying clothes. His upcoming birthday seemed an ideal opportunity to write this gift guide for tall men.

Of course, I’ve written this with my boyfriend in mind but I hope it will help you out for your Dad, your Brother, Uncle, Grandad, or maybe that dude in the office you’re really pally with.

Tops For Tall Men

I asked Paul how he felt about shopping for tops and his response was:

“I long for that one long fit t-shirt I bought long ago.”


You see, most high street stores seem to assume that if a man is tall, they are also wide. So for taller guys to find a top that fits them length wise, they usually need to go a size or two up on the high street. As my sweetheart is fairly slim, this can look a bit well… daft! Jacamo have a fantastic selection of longer length tops for men to fit all styles and budgets.

Pants For Tall Men

Again with pants and jeans, high street stores seem to assume that most men are either 21 years old, short and skinny or if proper grown ups, a bit chubby with short legs. Jacamo to the rescue again – they stock jeans up to 36 inch length.

Non Clothing Gift Ideas For Tall Men

  • Concert tickets – tall men never have a problem seeing over the crowd at a concert
  • Longer length yoga mat – because nobody likes to have their feet hanging out
  • Full height tent that he doesn’t have to stoop in
  • Extendable shower hose – so he can shower above his chest
  • A king sized bed

Gifts You Should Never Buy For a Taller Guy

  • A romantic weekend in country cottage
  • Economy seats on a budget airline
  • Theatre tickets (unless they’re on the front row)
  • A garden chess set
  • Clothing featuring vertical stripes

Whether you need ideas for his birthday, Father’s Day, Christmas, Valentine’s Day or any other occasion, I hope this gift guide helps you out! Likewise, if you have any more gift suggestions for tall guys, please leave them in the comments below, I’d love to hear from you!
