    I'm in need of some inspiration folks!

    I need a few ideas of gifts that I can include as an incentive for visitors to register at a new mens community.

    So far i've spoke with a couple of businesses to provide shaving gifts, and i'll be giving away a free years subscription to Esquire magazine, but I need some more ideas!

    Ahm, try body spray gifts, or some specially designed boxer shorts / shorts? Or, probably a good t shirt

    Special Training work-out programs, special killer diet plans, any sort of legal meds and supplements,
    discounts in mens shoes and clothing e-shops
    Car miniateurs(!), any other car-motorcycle related stuff.

    Boxer shorts in an interesting choice actually, thanks!

    I know the diet plans and meds would be popular, but I don't really want to go into that territory unless I can do it with really good, trusted brands. Which at this stage, I probably can't.

    Car related stuff is a good suggestion though, thanks guys.. Keep them coming!

    Small emergency kit with your business name/logo imprinted. It would support the community by showing how you care about them from your business. Little things means alot to some people. Notepads w/pen is a good idea as well.

    Body spray would be a good one, or deodorant. You can also try tshirts with your site name on it, or just plain white T's.

    If it was up to me, I would give gift cards to their place of choice, that was you can be SURE that they're happy. Plus the different amount of activity could dictate how much the card would be worth!

    Freebies can be a good idea, but can also cause a loss in profits if used incorrectly.

    Perhaps a cool Coffee mug with the logo of the community, also a voucher for a famous restaurant works well with men ;-) I'm sure you can approach a restaurant owner and ask them which day is their quietest day, then offer to send him a certain amount of customers on that day and negotiate am amount for the voucher, I think 50% should be good.

    A coffee mug is quite common among free gifts but it keeps reminding of you and your services every time the cup is picked up for use. Also go for the free boxers/shorts. That's something out of the box.

    2. Custom sunglasses
    3. Custom T-Shirts
    4. Imprinted Travel Bags
    5. Imprinted Wallets
    6. Imprinted Mugs
    7. USB Flash Drives

    T-shirt, boxer, mug, umbrella, pen drive, car sticker etc, all of those free gift works. it will be better if you can make a printing on the free gift to promote your community

    Anything practical is good; pens and pads, customised/banded coffee mugs. Golf balls are generally a hit (excuse the pun). Gift vouchers are handy - movie tickets etc. More common now are iTunes gift vouchers, which are great for a younger audience.

    If your eCommerce store allows your customers to collect reward points. Why not have them to collect a certain amount, and offer a few different retail stores for gift cards that they could redeem and use. (visa gift card, electronic stores and etc...)

    Do you think of Perfume? I see gentlemen today usually using perfume. They feel confidence and more sexual ;)

    Something like a shaving kit, car related items, tools, gift cards, etc are good items. :)
