Its that time of year again – what do you get your boyfriend for his birthday this time round? There’s no doubt that when it comes to choosing presents, men are more difficult to buy for than women. There is no easy answer to this dilemma, because all guys are different, so here’s a selection of gifts ideas that men might like:
1. What to buy your boyfriend for his birthday? How about an experience?
These days there are many companies offering gift certificates for experiences, like hot air ballooning, helicopter flying, white water rafting and other exciting things. They’re not as expensive as you might think, so check it out on the Internet. Another plus side is that he can arrange when he wants to go – so there is no need to organize anything yourself.
2. What about a gift idea for your boyfriend that is slightly less energetic?
Not all the experiences that you can buy vouchers for are designed for adrenaline junkies. If the guy you are shopping for would prefer a more sedate day out, then you can also get vouchers for things like a man’s spa day, gourmet dining or wine tasting experience.
3. A selection of imported beers
Another idea for gifts for guys is a sophisticated selection of imported beers. Whilst not all men are big on drinking, many do enjoy a tipple. You can buy some really interesting beer gift sets that contain a selection of unusual, imported beers, some savory snacks to go with them and often an explanation of how and where the different beers are made. This gift has been further popularised by the recent resurgence in craft brewing.
4. Magazine subscriptions
Another great idea is a magazine subscription. You can tailor these to suit the man you are buying for, so the degree of flexibility is huge. You can usually select the length of subscription; one year, six months or three months, to suit your budget.
5. A romantic dinner for two
A romantic dinner for two can be just what your boyfriend wants for his birthday. You could either book at a restaurant, or if funds are tight you could cook him a nice meal at home. Be sure that you know what sort of food he enjoys; otherwise your romantic dinner could end up falling flat.
6. Food hamper and assorted items
You could buy a hamper brimming full of his favorite foods and drinks or make one yourself. You can buy them for all different tastes with sections of cheeses, wines, beers, snacks and pretty much anything you can think of. You can also tailor this to your budget, which can be handy.
7. Sports collectibles and memorabilia
If the guy you are buying for is big on sports, find out what his favourite team is. Once you find out this, check online at their website. Chances are you can buy gift sets and collectables for his team, and it will definitely be appreciated.
