Finding a great present for your boyfriend is no easy thing to do. Too often, a lot of us are left not knowing what to get them, what they want, or what they need. We are often left in the dark, playing the guessing game. However, we have done the research for you and picked out the top gifts for your boyfriend. Here are some ideas on what to buy him.
What To Buy The Guy Who Loves Cars
If your boyfriend is a car lover and is always working on his car or taking it to the shop, consider getting him some coupons to different dealerships. If he is in the sales area, or looking to buy a new car, consider seeing what is out there to help him narrow his search.
Getting car parts can be a great present for your boyfriend. Too often, guys may not purchase parts for their car depending on the price and timing. If you can afford it, see what type of rims your boyfriend is wanting. On the more cost-friendly side, you can always shop around for car seats, car stickers, car wax, or even some fun car accessories.
If you are shopping for your boyfriend who loves cars, there is definitely something for everyone out there. Some guys really like changing their car paint every other month. There are car stickers that have different designs to put on cars. This is a great option for any guy who is wanting a new paint job, but not one that is permanent in the long run.
For The Gamers
If your boyfriend is anything like the dozens of guys out there, he probably enjoys playing games with his buddies. Consider purchasing your boyfriend the newest version of their favorite game. If they already have that, a great present for your boyfriend could be new game servers.
For those avid gamers, they often need new memory cards, headsets, controllers, and more.
With virtual reality games entering the world, this could also be a great gift to get on a big occasion for your boyfriend, especially if it is a holiday gift or an accomplishment gift for him.
Gamers generally enjoy gift cards to online stores. Giving them this can save characters’ lives, create new worlds in certain games, and more. One thing is for sure, if you have a boyfriend that is a gamer, you cannot go wrong no matter what you get him as long as it is in the gaming world.
For The Boyfriend Who Works From Home
If your boyfriend has had to transition to work remotely, dozens of office gifts are great presents.
We often get easily distracted working from home, so buying things like:
- a new desk
- office supplies divider
- headsets for the computer
- wireless phone chargers
- pictures for the desk
- a hard drive for the computer
- a calendar
- coffee mug
- encouraging personalized notes
- a new desk chair or couch
All of these are great options if you are dating someone who works from home. It can be hard to separate work from home these days, but buying things that make the office feel tidy can be a game-changer for any man.
For The One Who Is Active
If your boyfriend is a
- gym goer
- health freak
- bodybuilding guy
- person who likes to stay in shape
consider purchasing a gift card for him to the local sporting goods store. Too often, we try to figure out what supplements our boyfriend likes. Getting him something to where he can purchase it himself is a great present for your boyfriend.
If you are not wanting to get him a gift card, think about creating an active packet for him. This would be you creating a gift basket but filled with active things someone who is healthy would like. For instance, this basket could include:
- pre-workout suppplements
- lifting straps
- snacks during intense workouts
- a towel for their sweat
- a new shaker or water bottle
- protein chips
- a motivational quote on a keychain
- protein bars
- new gym shorts or shirts
- a water-resistant watch
The options are endless. Any of these options are a great present for your boyfriend, especially if he is a health and fitness lover.
For The One Who Enjoys Hunting
If you live out in the country, your boyfriend may love to hunt. Not all those who live in the country love to hunt. Some individuals genuinely love shooting. If this is the case for your boyfriend, a great present for your boyfriend would be getting him an appointment to go shoot at an indoor shooting range.
Each range tends to differ in terms of rates, gun restrictions, time, and more. Be sure to look into each one and see how their indoor range is set up. They all tend to differ.
If your boyfriend loves the shooting range, get a deal to where he can bring a family member or friend. Often times, family may make a whole day of the shooting range. This gives them some bonding time while doing something they all love.
For The Guy Who Is A Handyman
If you are dating someone who is always looking at how to fix up his house, have no fear! You can get this kind of guy a variety of things. For instance, you can get him new garage door openers. This is a great present for your boyfriend, especially if he has been struggling with his garage doors for the past few weeks, months, or years.
If your boyfriend likes fixing up things around the house, consider getting him:
- a toolbox
- protective glasses
- a audio player
- burnishing tools
- equipment for his specific projects
- a hat
- protective gloves
- a face shield
The options here for a great present for your boyfriend if he is a handyman are endless. No matter the project, whether it be repairing pipes or windows in the house to creating a custom floor mat or a custom table, there is something for everyone.
Another great thing to get your boyfriend if he likes working on projects around the house is a gift card to his favorite local hardware store. Coupons go a long way when completing major projects. In fact, there are dozens of places online that offer coupons if you purchase online.
Statistic Brain found that coupons on the internet are often used over 263 percent of the time more than in-store traditional coupons. Men love to save money, so getting him a ton of online or in-store coupons is a great present for your boyfriend no matter the project he works on.
For The Man That Likes To Relax
If your man loves to relax, and we are talking about really relax, consider getting him some things to help him do this such as:
- cannabis delivery
- new cannabis
- his favorite candies
- a CD or vinyl by his favorite artist
When shopping around for cannabis or edibles, look to see if the website or the shop is authorized to sell. It is important to do all your research. If you are unsure what a great present for your boyfriend would be in this regard, consider asking him what he does enjoy taking.
If your man loves to relax but does not take these substances, that is okay too. For the man who does not take these, you can think about buying him a robe. Men love robes just as much as women do. Buy him a nice massage or a relaxing day at a men’s spa. No matter the preference, these are great options for your guy.
For The Man Who Runs His Own Business
Often these days, we are dating men who are trying to run their own business or make their business thrive. No matter if the business is taking off or not quite yet, there are plenty of things for you to get as a great gift for your boyfriend.
If he is running a t-shirt business, consider buying him a shadow box with his first t-shirt ever made. Remember where we started can empower us when business gets a little rocky from time to time.
If your boyfriend is running a coaching business, get him a little plaque for his desk that says “coach.” You can even get him a picture of him coaching someone.
If your boyfriend is starting a business based on music, frame his favorite artist and give that to him as a gift. There are many ideas you can choose from that are not expensive, but come from the heart.
For The Man Who Loves To Eat
Almost every man loves to eat, but there are some that like to try a little bit of everything. One gift you can give is a homemade meal. You can make their favorite meal and give it to them. If you are not a fan of cooking, you can also think about getting a gift card to his favorite restaurant. The one he rarely goes to because of the location, pricing, or occasion.
If your man loves to do the cooking, consider buying him some tools. This can look like:
- BBQ tools
- a new grill
- an air fryer
- a personal cookbook
- new plates or silverware
You can even go as far as to buy your man’s favorite sports team grilling gear. These can be bought online. Some websites make them customized. You can even get aprons made with the colors and writing and font you are wanting, all you have to do is find the right person to do this.
Another idea is to get your man some gift cards to his favorite grocery stores. Some stores are pricy, but buying him gift cards or memberships to those grocery stores could be a great idea if your boyfriend loves to shop for food and cook it too.
For The Man Who Lives Away From You
Long distance dating is not easy. If you are living miles, states, or in a different country than your boyfriend, consider calling him or going on a live video session with him. Spending quality time is one of the best gifts someone can give, especially if they are long distanced couples.
If you want to send him something, consider creating a care package. There are so many things you can include in a care package, such as:
- his favorite snack
- his favorite drinks
- a new pair of socks or clothing
- something that reminds him of you
- a funny inside joke you have
- personally written letters for each month you spend a part
- encouraging words for the tough days
- a picture of you two
- a picture of your favorite place to be with him
The options are endless here. Get cute and festive with the gift basket. Put things in the basket that resemble his favorite team, sport, tradition, or color. Adding a personal touch to any gift will allow the guy to see you remember the little things about him. It can show how much you care and value the relationship as well, no matter the distance that may between the two of you.
Bonus Tip: For The Man Who Is All Over The Place
Men generally like a lot of these gift ideas on this list. Some men love hunting and being a fitness fanatic. Others may enjoy tending to projects around the house and fishing. Each man is different in what they love and enjoy doing. One thing to consider before buying a gift is to see what your man loves, wants, and needs.
If your boyfriend is wanting more time with you, that can be a great gift for your boyfriend. He may not verbalize this to you, but if he is asking what your plans are for the weekend, that may be a hint.
If your man is in school and stressed, consider giving him the gift of a massage or a trip into nature by going hiking.
If your man owns a business and loves working out, get him a gym pass to a gym he has been wanting to try while getting him a new planner or calendar for his office.
No matter the gift you give, your boyfriend is sure to love it. As long as you put in a little bit of time creating the gift or giving it, this will show your boyfriend your feelings about him no matter the occasion.
If you are shopping for a gift on Valentine’s Day or a major holiday, consider giving the gift in a themed gift bag or box. You cannot go wrong.
