It’s not always easy hunting down the perfect gift for a significant other, especially when your boyfriend already seems to have everything. Instead of relying on the same old gifts, get creative with your presents this year and blow your boyfriend’s mind.
So Fresh and So Clean
If your boyfriend loves to spiff up and tends to don a suit and tie to the office, consider buying him a fashion-forward gift that will have him looking and feeling suave. Instead of grabbing a shirt or watch, revamp his entire wardrobe with a unique gift he’ll never expect. Sign him up for a box subscription to TrunkClub, a styling company that will send him new wardrobe accoutrements each and every month. He gets to choose what he wants to keep, send back what he doesn’t, and rest assured that he’ll always be on trend.
A Little Bit of Humor
If your guy is a jokester and the clown of your group of friends, consider a gift that pays tribute to his humorous sensibilities. Has his fashion sense always been a bit on the wild side? Is he as patriotic as they come? Then you’re going to want to grab him an American Flag onesie from Tipsy Elves. This is one of those awesome gift ideas that you know he’d love, but never buy for himself. It’s guaranteed that your gift will be the only one of its kind, and he’ll get a deep belly laugh and sport his new onesie any chance he gets.
An Adrenaline Rush
If your boyfriend is the type of guy who can’t seem to sit still, and is always running off to find himself a new adventure or daredevil activity, an experience gift is right his alley. Websites like FunSherpa.com compile all of the activities available in your local area. Depending on where you live, offerings might include a day spent in a NASCAR sports car, a rappelling class, or even a seat in a fighter jet for a few hours. You might choose to take part in the activity with your boyfriend, or sit on the sidelines and watch as he indulges in his adrenaline rush, but either way, this gift is sure to surprise and delight him, guaranteed.
Host a Trip
If you want to get away and celebrate your boyfriend on a relaxing weekend vacation, plan a getaway trip that you know he’ll love. You can keep it to just the two of you for a romantic weekend, or invite his friends for an all-out party. Going away for the weekend doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Check out last-minute budget-friendly hotels on Hoteltonight.com, or plan something like a camping weekend that will be easy on your wallet but just as much fun. Extra points if you can keep the trip a surprise until the last minute.
Turn your present into a way to make new memories with your boyfriend by grabbing tickets to a local event you know he would appreciate. Whether it’s a sports game (perhaps his favorite team is playing in upcoming months) or a concert for one of his favorite musical artists, take a look at upcoming events and determine what best suits his personality and interests. To make it really special, have him block off the night in question but don’t tell him why. Hop in the car and drive to your destination, and pull out the tickets as you pull up to the parking lot. This spontaneous feeling surprise will definitely shock him in the best of ways. Grab some concert swag to remember the night by and keep it as a memento of a surprise well done.
Is there something your boyfriend has expressed an interest in learning? Has he mentioned wanting to pick up a paint brush and create a masterpiece? Does he love whipping up new culinary creations in the kitchen? Think of anything he’s mentioned, and find a local class that he can attend. You might find you want to join him, whether it’s a massage class, cooking course, or artistic instruction. This will be another way for the two of you to become closer while showing you’re committed to trying the things he’s interested in.
If you’re on the hunt for unique gifts for your boyfriend, keep these options in mind and think about his passions—the combo will have you securing the perfect present no matter the occasion.
