It can be hard to get your boyfriend a gift for his birthday. He may say that he doesn’t need anything, but a gift is surely appreciated and will show how much you care about him. The following is a list of possible gifts for your boyfriend’s birthday that have been highly rated by more than one source.
1. A Wallet
A wallet is a great gift to give your boyfriend on his birthday. Many women like to get their partner a nice wallet because it can be used for years and still look sharp.
Make sure you choose a nice material such as leather, and make sure the style isn’t too flashy or weird looking so he won’t mind carrying it around with him every day.
2. A Watch
A watch is another good choice, but only if you know what kind of watch your boyfriend likes. For example, some men prefer more expensive watches while other men prefer sportier ones. If you have a general idea about what type of watch your man would like then this can be an excellent option for his birthday present.
3. Gift Cards
Getting your boyfriend gift cards or money is a good idea because it gives him the chance to buy what he wants when you aren’t around. Just make sure you get one for each of his favorite stores so he can pick up something nice for himself when out shopping, such as clothing and other items that may interest him.
4. A Workout Routine
If your man goes through periods where he works out a lot then this might be a great gift option. You could compile a workout routine for him to follow, or you could just buy some nice workout clothing.
5. A Good Cologne
If your boyfriend isn’t too picky about what cologne he wears then getting him a good one for his birthday is always a great idea. Make sure you get something that smells really good and also look at the way he dresses his style of clothes so you are buying him something he will wear on an everyday basis.
Buying your boyfriend new movies for his birthday can be a fun gift as it gives him something to watch with you when there isn’t anything else going on. Just make sure the movies aren’t rated R in case your man is still young, since this may not be suitable for some people.
7. Music Albums
If your boyfriend is an alternative music fan then why not get him an album from his favorite band that has just come out? Not only will it mean a lot to him but it will show how much effort you’ve put into finding the perfect present for him since this kind of music isn’t easily accessible in stores so takes some searching around online.
Clothes are usually a good birthday gift for people who like buying their own clothing or know exactly what they want. You can buy your boyfriend some new clothes that he may not have bought for himself. But make sure you don’t get anything too weird because he may not like it.
9. Sports Tickets
If your man likes sports and has a favorite team then this can be an excellent birthday gift idea. You can get him tickets to go see his favorite team playing a game, or you can just buy him something related to the sport such as a jersey.
10. An Electric Toothbrush or Replacement Brush Heads
These are generally good quality toothbrushes which clean teeth in an easier way. Thanks to rotating heads rather than manual brushes that simply vibrate quickly when pressed against the teeth.
11. A Scented Candle
These can be a nice way to add some scents into the room and also create a relaxing atmosphere. I recommend you try a candle with an attractive scent of grapefruit and basil. You can also choose the best candles with his favorite scent.
12. A portable Speaker
This can be easily connected to any device that has a headphone jack via the included cable, allowing for good sound quality at party’s or when you’re just chilling with friends. This speaker also comes with Bluetooth connectivity and is charged via USB.
13. An Umbrella
Choose an umbrella that’s stylish yet functional, keeping him dry in those downpours. This shows that you care about your boyfriend. He’ll surely live to remember the gesture.
14. An Amusement Park Season Pass
If your boyfriend lives near an amusement park and you have a chance of going over summer this could be perfect for the two of you.
15. A Video Game
A game can be a great gift. If your boyfriend likes playing certain games on the Xbox or PS4, why not get him one that is new and has been praised by other gamers? You can then be available to play with him. It’ll make the day memorable for both of you.
16 A Pair of Headphones or Earphones
These are great for when your boyfriend is listening to music, playing on his phone or gaming. He can use them for pretty much anything with a 3.5mm headphone jacks.
17. A Board Game
This might be something that you haven’t seen your boyfriend play before but it could be fun if the two of you give it go! There are many different board games out there that vary in level of skill required. So try looking around online to find what seems best suited for of you.
18. A Beer Kit
If you want to get your boyfriend a gift that he’ll really appreciate, get him his very own beer kit to make his own beer at home. This way it will be a personalized beer for him and will surely taste better than anything from the local store.
19. A Coffee Maker
Most people wake up in the morning to a good cup of coffee. So why not give your boyfriend the chance to create this drink on his own with a coffee maker? There are many options online available on Amazon.
20. An Activity You Can Do Together
If you’re looking for something more personal, then why not do an activity together like go rock climbing or paintballing? He’ll have fun and make memories at the same time.
21. A Unique Scrapbook
For a more personal gift, you could make your own scrap book about the both of you as friends and have it framed in a nice box frame. This way he’ll always be able to look back on special memories with you.
22. A New Smartphone or Tablet
If your boyfriend is always on his phone or tablet, then why not get him a new one for his birthday? There’s a large range of choice available which may include the latest iPhone or the latest Samsung Galaxy.
23. Personalized Clothing with His Name on It
Your boyfriend will definitely love you more if you get him personalized clothing with his name on it, such as a jumper or hoodie. As well as being a cozy gift to wear around the house and show off to friends, it’s also very affordable which makes great value for money in your boyfriend’s eyes.
24. Leather Gloves
Not only do men’s gloves look stylish but they’re extremely practical in keeping your hands warm. In winter time, men always need good gloves that keep their hands warm and dry so why not get your boyfriend some leather gloves? This way they’ll be sure to last him a long time and protect his hands from wind and rain at all times.
25. A New Jacket
When winter comes round everyone needs a new jacket and autumn/fall is the perfect time to buy one. This way he’ll have something warm to wear when the temperature drops and will be thanking you all through winter by wearing it whenever he goes outside.
26. A Personalized Mug
Another idea for a more personal gift is to get your boyfriend his very own personalized mug with his name on it. He can use this every day and remember how much you care about him even when at work or university as you’re the only person who got him such a lovely gift.
27. A Nice Poster
If you’re looking for something cheap and cheerful, get an amazing poster of a place that your boyfriend has always wanted to travel to or a famous musician he admires. It’ll be sure to make him smile whenever he looks at it hanging on his wall.
28. A Subscription to the Magazine of His Choice
A magazine subscription is perfect for someone who doesn’t have enough time to visit the shop around the corner from their house, but still wants access to plenty of interesting content on their chosen subject. This will allow your partner some me-time and will keep them entertained for months after getting this gift.
29. An Interesting Book
If your boyfriend loves reading then why not get him an interesting book that he might have heard about but never got around to picking up himself? This will allow him to broaden his knowledge and become a more intelligent person overall which can only be positive for you both.
Birthday presents are about two things: appreciation, and hinting at future gifts. You don’t want to go too overboard on either side or you run the risk of looking weird. But some well-placed hints can let your love know that you’re ready to step it up from hanging out in his room when his mom isn’t home every weekend.
