This had to come first in my list because of how unique it is. No matter the volume of his beards, these items will still have him looking properly groomed at all times. As you go around shopping for your hair products, you can also drop this set in the cart and give him a surprise of his life.
Another bonus point for the set is that it contains products that can be used on different types of textures and is also safe for the skin around the chin area. They also come in different sizes that he can carry along everywhere he goes, so that he doesn’t miss on anything, even when travelling upcountry.
When it comes to gifting, nothing can beat a personalized gift. Such gifts best expresses how well you understand the receiver and know what’s best for them. It makes the lucky one have the impression that you had them in mind when choosing the gift, and that’s how it’s supposed to be. That said, you can put a smile on your boyfriend’s face with a wallet customized with his name, favourite club or team on it.
I can only imagine how that will turn out. He might not fancy wallets, but the fact that it’s customized to something he does relate to will definitely turn things around. Whenever the festive season drops in, we usually have different gift shops who offer such services and all you have to do is place your order in time to get the work done and all wrapped up when Christmas knocks on your door.
3. Coffee maker
This is prefect for any household, and it would be a bonus to you if your boyfriend prefers to begin his mornings with a mug of coffee. For perfectly brewed coffee, you’ll definitely need a good coffee machine that will help save time and energy. There’s no better feeling than having a perfect cup of coffee whichever way you like it, and at any time of the day.
Well, that’s the power of having a coffee machine in your kitchen. When you gift him this, you’ll barely see him at the coffee shop because he’ll be looking forward to his own coffee brewed at the comfort of his own home. This makes this idea one of the cost effective options that will have him saving some money that he would have spent at the coffee shops, money which he can save up for your next trip or holiday. Sounds perfect, right?
Away from coffee lovers, here’s something for the whiskey lovers and at the mention of whiskey, nothing comes close to this brand. Christmas is the best time to indulge in grilled steak as much as you want without feeling guilty about anything. There’s no better way to help him have the best of this season with his friends or family than with this great bottle of exceptional freshness.
Actually it’s one of those brands with balanced flavours that makes it an ideal gem for appreciating life in any occasion and all the moments that come with it. So, with enough bottles at hand, this can get him sorted all through to the New Year. It will get him loving you more, just as much as he does to his favourite bottle, how about that? Talking about whiskey, you should check out our next gift option.
Generally, we all know that with liquor, you probably need the best accessories for memorable combinations. Your boyfriend could be a lover for good stuff, but as you look around the house, you notice that he doesn’t have the right whiskey glasses; or maybe he doesn’t have enough to help you pull through when you have friends over at your place.
Embarrassing, huh? You can salvage the situation by gifting him a number of these glasses come Christmas. They’re affordable and come in unique designs, giving you a number of options to pick from. With this, you’ll not only melt his heart, but also save the both of you some embarrassments as the hosts, and you can all toast to those good times with much ease.
Having guests around can be fun, but the trouble kicks in when you have to do a barbecue and you don’t have a grill. We all know how difficult it is to borrow some of these stuff from your neighbour, and being the festive season, you might never be that lucky. Now you can try to picture how more difficult it is if it’s the same case with your boyfriend.
The good thing is that today we have portable grills that you can use from any corner of your home, so you don’t necessarily have to own a backyard. We also have options of choosing a gas or charcoal grill, based on what you know is effective for your boyfriend.
With them there’s less space needed and depending on the energy of your choice, you’ll experience less or no emission of smoke, so you don’t have to worry about leaving the house messy. The better part is that they get the job done faster, helping him save time.
Some normally say the idea of gifting your boyfriend a pair of socks is way traditional, but that is so not true. This idea will go a long way, especially if your boyfriend is one of those gents who barely find themselves shopping for socks. How about getting those varieties for him? The real secret is to find something extraordinary for it to work some magic.
A descent pair of socks will elevate his comfort, and he will live to appreciate you for bringing such comfort to his life. This brand has socks that can comfortably be used during any season and still get the work done. Alternatively, you can also get him some warm cotton socks for winter and relatively lighter and moisture-wicking pairs to make him all set for those hot summer days
Does he love his shoes in a type of way? If the answer is yes, then a pair from these sneakers will turn out to be the best Christmas gift of a lifetime. It’s not only the unique designs and styles that the sneakers have which overwhelms me. I also love the fact that they’re made with durable materials, so any pair from this collection will stick around for quite some time.
When looking for gift ideas revolving around shoes for your boyfriend, I usually recommend those brands that can be comfortably worn as an everyday shoe. If you’re together with me in this, then this is the right option for you because the versatility that comes with these sneakers is unexplainable.
With these, the receiver won’t be bound to wear the shoes only on specific days or occasions. However, if you’re not bound by a budget, you can also spice it up by gifting him assorted pairs that will bring his existing shoe collection back to life.
Wireless earphones do change the way you listen to your music. We all know how the regular earphones can be messy at times, and with them you have to drag your phone everywhere you move. But with this option, your loved one will never have to go through any of these troubles again. These earphones have been a thing amongst the gents for quite some time now.
Therefore, if your boyfriend still doesn’t have one, this is a gift that he will truly appreciate. At the same time, there’s no harm in getting him an additional pair if he already does have one. This will come in handy especially if he’s an active type of person. He can use this when exercising, behind the wheels or even at the office if the ethics allow.
10. Wrist watch
Accessories to do work just fine for gents as well, so don’t hesitate to grab a descent piece for you boyfriend this Christmas. Investing in one will make him stand out in the crowd, and the proudest moment is coming to reality with the fact that you actually gifted him such.
One thing I love about this collection is that there’s something for everyone. Thus, you can still get him something he loves, whether rustic or modern. There are also options for casual, official and sporty occasions, so really, you won’t miss something to wrap up for this holiday’s unboxing.
11. Boxer briefs
Away from the usual gifting of boxers, we bring to you the contemporary idea of boxer briefs. When you have been thinking of buying your boyfriend an underwear, you can opt for this type. He will never expect this because men know our gifting histories of boxers, ties and vests, thus, the surprise and appreciation will be quite evident.
These brands are more common today than their counterparts because they easily fit different sizes of people and are more comfortable. They’re also the best when it comes to coverage and support and can therefore be worn with any garment; talk of versatility.
You can get him a number of pairs of assorted colours and designs to give him a variety from which he can comfortably pick from every single day. And for something more personalized, you have your choice customized with either of your initials.
Unlike ladies, men don’t have the luxury of having numerous bags for different occasions. This could be because their luggage only revolves around the gym, office and travels. It’s never easy finding a bag that your boyfriend can use to run more than one errand and that’s where these bags come in.
It would even be more ideal if he travels around with his laptop more often. So as he throws in a few items for the Christmas holidays ahead, he can still have his laptop in there and it will still be in a good shape by the time he reaches his destination.
We have products like this which bring more to the table because they’re waterproof, durable, has enough pockets and can be used by both men and women. Therefore, you can comfortably share the bag with him; there’s no harm in that.
I know this list unveils and brings to light the unexpected. Most men barely find time to even shop for their own personal stuff, and that’s why you may have realized you’re your boyfriend’s kitchen barely has enough cookware. This Christmas, you can do the unexpected by bringing him this wonderful surprise; because it will be the least of his expectations.
As Christ will be born, his kitchen will also have a re-birth of its own, something that will remind him of you every time he walks into the kitchen. For something durable, you might have to cough out some extra dollars, but it will be totally worth it.
However, amazon has some of the great deals on these products, and it might get better during the end of year discounts, so be on the watch out for that.
14. Leather bracelet
Bracelets are the number one gifts viewed as the best when looking for something to perfectly seal your relationship. A leather bracelet will turn out perfect for your boyfriend because of its neutrality and durability.
This is a gift he can wear around when running any errand because of how sizeable they are. You can also fetch two for both of you, and have the pieces personalized with your names on them to signify how special you are in each other’s lives.
15. Leather belts
Still on spicing up his closet, a leather belt will do wonders. So when you have a feeling that your boyfriend doesn’t have enough pieces in their collection, you can save him the trouble of going to the stores by gifting him a few more belts.
As I mentioned earlier, some options may seem too obvious but the difference comes in depending on how creative you are. With belts, you can also have the pieces customized to his favourite designs or something you know he will love with probably his names on it.
16. Wine gift box
This option is for men who take their wine seriously, ounce by ounce. To them, it’s not only the wine that maters, but also how well it’s packaged. Most gift boxes come in rustic designs making this option a plus if your boyfriend loves stuff with traditional touch.
This will also come in handy if he frequently does wine-gifting or works in the wine industry because it will help give his packages a touch of elegance. It also shows how much you appreciate whatever it is that he does. To emphasize on the magic behind gifting personalized items, you can have his name or favourite quote engraved on the boxes, and he will instantly love your gift in different way.
For you not to look too mean, you can also have his favourite wine in there depending on how many bottles it can hold, and trust me, he’ll brand you as the girlfriend of the year.
17. Whiskey decanter
Apart from whisky glasses, this is yet another important accessory that shouldn’t miss from a gentleman’s mini-bar. It’s always associated with class, so when you have guests around and serve them their favourite drink from the decanter, it will change their perspective towards you.
Contrary to popular opinion, you don’t have to decant only the high end whiskeys and at the same time, we now have more affordable decanters that you can choose from. Before boxing it up for your loved one, ensure that you pick an item with the right seal, is sizable to hold up to 750 ml of whiskey and is free of any lead crystals.
If you’re lucky enough, you can come across packages that include whiskey glasses, so it would be a double blessing for him.
18. Outdoor bicycle
It’s not only children who fancy bicycles, some men do too. This will be a bonus for you if your boyfriend loves outdoor workouts, especially cycling in the woods. There are different types of bicycles from which you can choose the most suitable one and these are: Road, Mountain, Hybrid and Specialty bicycles. After being able to narrow down your options according to the terrains that he prefers cycling on, you can now look out for other features like gears, suspension and brakes. These steps are geared towards ensuring that you gift your loved one a bicycle that’s in good shape.
It’s recommended to always take a break from closed shoes, in order to let the feet breathe to prevent foot and shoe odours. For ladies, this has never been an issue because of how easy it is to find several pairs of slippers in their closet. Gifting your boyfriend a pair or two of these adidas slippers will ensure that he takes descent breaks from the regular sneakers and work shoes that aren’t as breathable.
These are slippers that he can rock when indoors, when taking luxurious walks, or when hanging out with the boys over the weekend. Adidas is globally recognized for quality products, so durability shouldn’t be an issue with such a gift. It’s a guarantee that the slip slippers will stick around longer than other regular brands that you may come across on the shelves.
20. Instant cooker
I can barely count the number of men I know who actually cook. The excuse for every one of them is that cooking is tedious! This can be somewhat true, especially if he isn’t a professional cook. It usually takes forever for most of them to come up with a healthy meal but there’s always a solution for everything, so this issue is not an exception.
With an instant cooker, all you have to do is place your food in there, and let it handle the rest for you. They are also easy-to-clean, so it scraps off that from men’s list of worries. There’s no single boyfriend out there who won’t appreciate the gift of an instant cooker, because personally, I would gladly do.
As we have seen, this list breaks the myth that paints gifting men as an almost-impossible mission. Everyone deserves to feel appreciated this Christmas, and there’s no better way to do so than with any of these 20 best Christmas gifts for your boyfriend that we have highlighted.
