Gift Ideas for Your Boyfriend


When Christmas time rolled around my freshman year of college, I began to mull over all of the gifts I could get Xavier. I’d never had a boyfriend around the holidays, so it was new for me. To be honest, I can’t remember what in the world I ended up getting him that year, but after four delightful years of dating, I now pride myself on my manchil gifting abilities. Boyfriend? Husband? These gifts will work for all!

Nivea For Men Lip Balm, Replenishing

Tired of your man stealing your lip balm? I know I am! This summer I bought Xavier his own chapstick, and I haven’t had to hand mine over since.

Pac-Man Heat Change Mug

I bought this for my guy last Christmas, and he loved it. It’s functional yet fun – the image on the mug changes when warm liquid is poured into the cup.

Mr. Beer Premium Gold Edition Beer Kit

A grown man still has the same mindset he did when he was a small child – he wants a gift he can do something with. Hopefully this one-time beer brewing kit doesn’t inspire a lifelong hobby.

Custom Engraved Liquor Flask – Inexpensive Customized Personalized Stainless Steel Flask

This is also a page from my own gift book. A popular groomsmen gift, a custom engraved flask is a true man-gift.

USHER For Men By USHER Eau De Toilette Spray

I recommend this because it’s one of my favorite colognes. Don’t worry whether he will or won’t like the scent – get something YOU want him to smell like!

Sour Apples to Apples

Get something you can do (or play!) together with your friends. In the traditional game of Apples to Apples, the best word wins. In Sour Apples to Apples, the worst answer wins.

Cuisinart TTG-500 Two-to-Go Coffeemaker

Yes, it’s a functional gift, but it’s one of those gifts that people want without knowing it.

Syma S107/S107G R/C Helicopter – Blue

Boys and their toys!

Da Vinci 500 Poker Set with Chips, Case, Dealer Buttons, Cards, Cut Cards, and Dice

Is he a poker player? Get him the #1 selling poker set on Amazon.

The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead

Nuff said.

    I am having a hard time getting a gift for my boyfriend because I feel like every time he wants something he impulse buys it right away!

    I bought my bf the R/C helicopter for our anniversary (how unromantic but, he really wanted one)! It’s a good, little helicopter and very fun to play with. I think you can buy accessories and you can buy replacement parts just in case.

    It’s pretty curable considering our friend flew it into a tree before lol. It’s a good gift overall for the men out there who enjoy R/C toys.

      That’s great. My dad buys one almost every Christmas. Xavier’s roommate last year had two that he was obsessed with.
