1.DIY project

The most romantic and meaningful gift that you can give your boyfriend this Christmas is a DIY project that represents your relationship. There are so many different projects that you can make for your boy that will put a big smile on his face. You can create a scrapbook with a bunch of pictures, a picture frame with your favorite picture together, a mug with a picture of the two of you on it, a memory book, and more! You honestly can’t go wrong with any DIY gift, as these gifts are so special and meaningful, and will always be something that your boyfriend can look back on. He is going to love the fact that you took so much time to create such a special gift for him. This will truly show him how much you care about him and how much you love him.

2.Tickets to an event

Another great gift to give your boyfriend is tickets to an event. If there is an upcoming concert or sporting event that you know your boyfriend will enjoy, buy two tickets for you guys! This makes for a great gift and date idea, as you can enjoy the event together! Pay attention to when he talks about concerts or games he wants to go to, and buy the tickets as soon as you can. When giving him this gift, make your own tickets and write a cute messages on it, instead of just printing out the tickets. He will be so excited!


If one thing is certain about all guys, they love a nice watch. Whether your boyfriend wants a fancy new Rolex, a simple watch, or an Apple watch, get him the gift! You can add a cute message to the inside of the watch case about something to do with time and how great it has been together (get super cheesy and cute, he will love it). Watches are a great gift to give your man because whenever he wears it, he will think of you!

4.New shoes

Another gift that guys get super excited about are new shoes. There are so many different styles of shoes out there, so pay attention to the style and brand that your boyfriend usually wears. If his favorite brand is releasing a new style for Christmas, get him a pair! Nothing is more exciting than getting a fresh pair of kicks. Add a cute message to the inside of the box to make the gift even more special. You can even get him a nice outfit to go with the shoes so he is ready for your next date night!


Technology is one thing that we all can’t live without anymore, so you can’t go wrong with getting your boyfriend something new in this department. You don’t need to go crazy and buy your boyfriend the latest iPhone, Mac Book, or iPad. He will be completely satisfied if you get him a new phone case, headphones, or even a portable speaker. Remember, the gift doesn’t need to be extremely fancy or expensive. It’s all about getting your boyfriend something that you know he will enjoy and use! Plus, guys can’t go without their music, so headphones or a speaker is always a great option.

6.Create a playlist of your songs

Every couple has a playlist of songs that have a special meaning to their relationship. This Christmas create a sweet playlist of all of your songs to give to your boyfriend. Burn the playlist on a CD so that he will always have it to listen to in the car on his way to work or school. You can even decorate the CD with your names, some hearts, stickers, etc. Make yourself a copy too!

7.Love letter in a bottle

This gift might sound a little cheesy, but it’s totally worth making! Sometimes the best gifts are the ones that require less money and more thoughtfulness. Instead of going all out and buying your boyfriend something expensive that he probably doesn’t want, write him a love letter! Pour out your heart in the letter and tell him how much you love him, how much he means to you, and how special the relationship is to you. There is no right or wrong way to write a love letter, all that matters is that you are honest and tell him exactly how you feel. This letter will put the biggest smile on his face! If you want to add a little something to go with the bottle, frame a picture of the two of you. This is a simple gesture that will mean so much to him.

8.Plan a couples weekend getaway

Get ready to shock your boyfriend by planning a special couples weekend getaway!  Guys love surprises and nothing is sweeter than pulling off this ultimate surprise. You don’t need to go crazy and buy him tickets to Hawaii or New York, you can keep the mini vacation super local and still have an amazing time together. You can even plan a staycation in your hometown, rent out a hotel, and plan a perfect weekend for the two of you. Once you finalize the plans for the weekend, make a cute itinerary to give him. This will make him even more excited for the trip!

9.Personalized beer mug

You know how much your boyfriend loves his beer, so surprise him this holiday season with a personalized beer mug! This gift is so much fun to make because you can get super creative and design it however you think your boyfriend would like it. If you feel like being super cheesy and cute, design a mug that says “Best Boyfriend Ever” or something along those lines! He will love it regardless, and it will be his new favorite glass to drink beer out of.

10.Anniversary journal

Impress your boyfriend by making him an anniversary journal. An anniversary journal is very similar to a scrapbook. The idea behind this journal is to document all of your dates together, as well as significant milestones spent together as a couple. Fill the journal with stories, jokes, and thoughts that will bring him back to each memory that you have shared together. Fill the journal with lots of pictures too! This is a gift that you will both enjoy, and that you can continue to update throughout the relationship!

11.Make him a romantic home cooked dinner

Sometimes, all your boyfriend wants is to spend quality time with you, rather than getting a gift. If that is the case, don’t sweat it! Instead of stressing about still finding him a gift, give him what he wants! You can create a romantic, intimate dinner date at home, by cooking him his favorite meal and dessert. Buy a bottle of wine, make some appetizers, and get ready for a romantic night that you both won’t forget! This gift is a great idea to give all year round, especially if you are in a long distance relationship and don’t get to spend much quality time together.

12.Personalized gift basket with all of his favorite things

If you really can’t decide what to get your boyfriend this year, make him a personalized gift basket! All you need to do is go to your local arts and crafts store and buy a big basket. Then, fill the basket with a bunch of your boyfriend’s favorite things that you know he will love to get. You can add candy, snacks, alcohol, clothes, gift cards and more. These gift baskets are so much fun to make, and even more exciting to give. This is a great idea to give your boyfriend if he is super unclear or uncertain about what he wants this holiday season.
