Buying a gift for a boyfriend can be tough.  All of the variables that come together, such as money, not knowing what he likes, and what is actually available at the time, can make you feel like you want to do away with special occasions altogether. However, we know that we have to buy gifts from time to time, so we might as well bite the bullet, so to speak, and just get on with it. You aren’t alone, though, and don’t need to buy your man a gift without some guidance. What are the things you can buy that he’ll love forever?

1. Clothing
Clothes can be a great gift, but you have to be careful with the message you’re sending; you don’t want him to think that you believe he has a bad eye for fashion! Play it safe with something you’d already expect to find in his wardrobe. Mens Clothing

2. Footwear
Boys like to mock women for their shoes, but if ever there was a case of ‘get your own house in order first;’ this is it. Buy him some footwear to sort out his feet, and then let him criticize your taste. The rules from clothing go out of the window at this stage, if his footwear offends you, then feel free to take matters into your own hands.

3.Boys and Their Toys
Boys love a gadget, so something small and quaint is a great idea if you’re not looking to spend fortunes. Something like a desk robot for when he’s studying, or something similar will always raise a laugh. If you want to spend a little more, something like an iPod or a tablet device will work well.


4. Gym Membership Yes, we’re entering dangerous territory again, but if your man talks about wanting to join the gym but never does so, why not take matters into your own hands and do it yourself? Just assure him that you actually do love him the way he is, and you aren’t actively telling him to get ‘buff’ or else!

5. Get Him Gaming
Your man likely falls into one of two categories if he loves his gaming. First, his gaming is harmless, and he plays when you’re not there in his spare time. Second, it feels like the only time he has to play games is when he should be giving you his full attention. We’re not going to get into a “why are you still together?” debate, but you know by which category he is whether buying games is a good idea!

6. A Surprise Holiday
Don’t be fooled into thinking that a holiday has to mean paying out a fortune and flying to the other side of the world. You can just as easily have a relaxing break at a hotel out of town, or travel to a theme park if you’re looking for a trip with a difference.

7. A Great Experience
Experience days are big business around the world, and can be great for turning to when you need to buy a thoughtful gift for a loved one. If he talks about dreaming of driving a sports car, or skydiving, why not give him the opportunity to do so. 

8. Jazz Him Up
A piece of jewellery can work wonders for a man’s appearance, as long as it is a classy, elegant touch. Consider tungsten jewellery, such as a ring or a necklace, or if jewellery isn’t his thing something more ‘traditional’ and ‘everyman’ like a watch will do the trick.

9. Indulge a Hobby
What are his interests; what does he do in his spare time? Putting this to use in terms of gifting, you’ll be opening up a range of ideas, from books and DVD’s to tickets to sporting events and music performances. 

10. Wine and Dine
This is something a lot of us do at the start of a relationship, so why not use it to mark a special occasion, too? Take him to his favourite restaurant, or somewhere upmarket, and allow him to indulge himself for the evening. Choose something memorable to mark a special occasion for your boyfriend; as you can see, it isn’t as hard as you might think!
