What makes a good birthday present for your boyfriend? It won’t be too hard as long as you try very hard. The good news is that most guys are not picky when it comes to things like presents. I have had boyfriends who were not picky or focus on their presents at all. They love whatever that I got them. I guess men are great when it comes to accepting presents or at least the men that I dated. Generally men are pretty easy going when it comes to presents. They won’t be as picky as other people like your in laws. A great present is the one that is meaningful to him and to your relationship. You can interpret that within your relationship. Whatever that is meaningful or symbolically represent your love for him. You can take this opportunity to let him know how much you love him by showing him with presents. You can always surprise him with a nice party, getaway tickets to a vacation spot or you drove four hours to buy him that special guitar that he’s been wanting. You can give him anything that you think he will feel good receiving just as long as you don’t forget that it’s his birthday.
I think you should try to be as creative and thoughtful as you can since he’s your boyfriend. Every guys have their own taste, hobbies, and passion so gifts are all different for each guy. You should pay attention to your boyfriend and see what his taste is and what he’s passionate about. Once you know, you will be able to get him the present that he can’t say no at all. For example, if your boyfriend likes football then he’s going to love clothing or hats that has his favorite team on it. He’s going to love tickets reservation to the next game. You can buy him souvenirs for his team.
Things like these are meaningful and he will also enjoy them instead of some vague present like a sweater. I know that we do give out a lot of sweaters but you can try something different this birthday. The goal is to match the present with his hobbies or things that he can’t live without. All men have different hobbies so I can’t say one present will satisfy all the boyfriends out there. You will have to study your boyfriend. You should try to give a nicer, or more upscale present since it’s his birthday and you don’t want him to see that you really didn’t spend time on his present. The present has to be sufficient and a birthday cake alone is probably not sufficient enough. I have had birthday where I have a birthday cake only and I enjoyed it but I thought something was still missing. You should try to give a well thought present.
Another idea is to give him present that he can use on daily basis like a very nice watch or a new Ipods or cell phone. Men love electronics and gadgets so you can aim for those presents and they will enjoy it too. A nice laptop that he can use for school or work is not a bad idea either. You can try to buy him things that he can use for his work too. You can buy him a nice suit, dress shirt, dress shoes or office accessories. They will all work. The idea is to be thoughtful and upscale so that he doesn’t feel like you rush through it since he’s your significant other. You can buy tickets in advance and take him to a concert or a show that he might like as this is a surprise to him and he’ll feel good knowing that you took time to plan things out.
You can also aim at buying things that has sentimental value like a nice watch with your name and his name engraved on it. Men wear watch all the time. You can try a Rolex if you can afford it if not something close to that. You can try giving him a desk calendar with all of your photo in it. Meaningful things like this can always be a good present. Men are not that materialistic either and they’re easy to please so just try hard. I think men enjoy places like Home Depot, Best Buy, Fried Electronics and you can get him presents in these stores and he’ll most likely enjoy it.
