For most people, finding them a proper gift can be a bit of a challenge. But for boyfriends? Shopping for boyfriends is remarkably easier than it is to shop for family or friends or even girlfriends. Here are 10 Basic Boyfriend Gifts to consider once it’s time to do some shopping.
This may seem like a cop-out boyfriend gift, but you’d be wrong. Like another boyfriend gift on this list (the last one), some boyfriends would happily accept this gift, compared to something more extravagant. No muss, no fuss. They can use to buy anything they want or need. Take it from an actual guy: men are simple creatures.
2. DVD set
Does your boyfriend have a favorite TV show? If so, get him the latest season on DVD or Blu-Ray. He’ll love it. You can even use it as an excuse to close and cuddle while watching the show late one evening. Just be careful that it’s not a show that will take all of your boyfriend’s attention.
This is more of a joke gift, but it’s still viable. If you have trouble getting the message across to your boyfriend that he smells a little funky from time to time, nothing says ‘you stink’ better than a deodorant with a big bow around it. This is one of the best basic boyfriend gifts!
I know, this boyfriend gift is suspiciously similar to the DVD set, but there is a stark difference. One is cheaper than the other. And, since a Blue-Ray DVD is rather small, you could put it in a little gift basket with some snacks or other goodies and present it to your boyfriend.
When he’s not paying attention to you, does your boyfriend spend a lot of time with his earbuds practically glued into his ears? When he’s out exercising or doing his job or working on his hobbies? Bluetooth headphones are one of the basic boyfriend gifts that really help out in the long run. Your boyfriend will love it.
6. A Good Meal
The phrase ‘the way to man’s heart is through his stomach’ exists for a reason. This may be the boyfriend gift that requires the most work, but it’ll be worth it when he sees the spread you’ve laid out for him. And if your boyfriend is particularly easy to please, drive to his favorite take-out place, and surprise him with his favorite combo.
7. Something For The Car
Some guys treat their cars like religious artifacts. A steering wheel cover, a gift certificate to get the tires rotated, even some windshield wiper fluid; anything to help out with the car will go a long way with your boyfriend.
8. A Video Game
Like the DVD set, this is a boyfriend gift that could just as easily swallow up your boyfriend’s time and attention. But, if you’re just as much a gamer as he is, you might want to get a game that has co-op or multiplayer, that way you can spend even more time together. Remember, you risk losing your boyfriend if it’s a single player game. Do your research before-hand.
9. A Handkerchief
One of the more classy basic boyfriend gifts that you can never go wrong with is grooming products. My father and grandfather would say to me all the time that you should always carry a comb for your hair and a handkerchief.
You may laugh, but hear me out. For some guys, it doesn’t matter what you get them. They’ll be happy to receive anything from you; just knowing the fact that you love and care for them is enough.
