We are slowly but surely coming up to the festive season once again. Apart form getting excited about all the parties and dreading Uncle Sam’s drunken stories at the family get-together; it’s time to start thinking about what to get for our loved ones.
It seems that it is always dads and boyfriends who are difficult to shop for, but while dad will probably be quite happy with a bottle of fine whiskey, a shirt or even some socks, for our boyfriends we want something special.
The boyfriend Christmas gift dilemma is one that engulfs us all. What could we get our boyfriend for Christmas that shows our love, yet makes him jump with joy?
Here are some ideas on getting your boyfriend a festive gift he will be smiling about for ages!
Handmade gifts are always special.
Any guy would love the fact that this girlfriend has taken time out to make something for him.
Handmade gifts can be as simple as a CD compilation that has songs that are special to the both of you. For instance, it may be the song that was playing when you both met or during your first date or any music that evokes memories for you both of significant times spent together.
Here is a list of some creative handmade gift ideas including how to make a Christmas gift basket.
Whether it’s tickets to see his favorite band, his football team or his most loved comedian, he will love you for it! Getting him this Christmas gift will show that you know what he loves and he will be as excited as a little boy!
Adrenalin Filled Experiences
If you man is into action and adventure they will be really surprised and impressed if you get him an experience he will never forget.
Whether its Bunjee jumping, sky diving, kite surfing, hang gliding or rock climbing it will get his blood pumping! He will love you for it!
If he is a bit of a geek, why not take him to techie fare where he can marvel at all the latest gadgets! Getting him the latest game console, fantastic software, projector or the laptop he has been pointing at for months will no doubt win you girlfriend points!
Watches are a good bet, especially if they do cool things like adjust themselves to time zones automatically, are powered by physical movement or do other crazy things that men and boys will get giddy about.
We might wonder what the fuss is all about and maybe even dread them playing with our gift for hours. But the truth is, if you get him the latest game he really wants, he will be putty in your hands!
Get him something that the both of you can play together. There are a whole range of board games that are specifically designed to be played by couples, so look out for them.
There are many companies that send goodies on a specific theme on a monthly basis.
For example, lootcrate that sends a box full of goodies every month specifically geared towards gamers and geeks. There are also many others like the Men’s health Box that sends health related stuff and Gentleman’s box that sends stuff related to fashion and lifestyle.
Most of these boxes cost around $12 to $20 per month and you have the option to choose the length of the subscription be it one month, three months or six months.
Some of these sites also have a specific gifting section that sends the recipient a gift card which can be redeemed later. Example: https://www.lootcrate.com/gift
If your boyfriend religiously follows a Youtube channel/vlogger then you can get him some related merchandise, like for instance, a tshirt.
Some you-tubers also have their own stores. You should be able to get a link to their stores on their Youtube page.
Art never goes out of style and if your boyfriend is the type who admires art then get him something fresh and artistic like a sticker, a painting or wall art.
You should be able to find a ton of fresh art from a range of artists on sites like RedBubble.com.
Unless he has made clear suggestions about something particular that he wants, it’s better to stay away from clothes. This is especially important when it comes to getting him clothes you would love to see him in, but he doesn’t normally wear.
Custom Made Gifts
There are a range of services on the internet that can personalize gift items at a very low cost. For instance, Zazzle.com gives you the option of custom made t-shirts, mugs, key chains, hats, buttons and more.
So there you have it! Your boyfriend will be happy as can be and you can spend hours under the mistletoe listening to him tell you how awesome you are. The key to getting your boyfriend a Christmas present is to be creative and remember his boyish tendencies! Have a lovely Christmas and enjoy being the best girlfriend in the world!
