A gift has its significance in the emotion behind it rather than just the “price” value. When the need to impress is dropped and is instead replaced by a genuine love usually the gift ends up reflecting it. Even the smallest of gifts can touch one deeply when it’s given from a place of true love.
You don’t have to strain yourself financially in order to get an expensive gift. Go for the best possible gift within the limits of your budget. Avoid getting into a credit debt and be sure to spend from your savings. If you think creatively about what to get your boyfriend for his birthday, you are quite likely to get something that’s value for money which trills him at the same time.
Unique Gift Ideas for Your Boyfriend
Here are a few birthday gift ideas for your boyfriend.
Most guys are into some form of sports, either casually or seriously. Find out what type of sport your boyfriend is interested in and see if you can get him a gear that can help him in the sport. For example, a baseball glove would be a good gift if your boyfriend is into baseball.
If you are not good at selecting the sports gear be sure take the advice of a “guy” friend of yours or your brother if you have one. Sports gears are usually quite expensive so be sure to check in on your budget.
The most common accessories that guys wear are wrist watch, coolers, belt, cuff links, bracelet or a ring. You can get him one of these accessories as a birthday gift. Just make sure you get him something that he can make use of, if he does not like wearing a watch, the gift of a most stylish watch would leave him cold. Goggles or coolers (sun glasses) make for great gifts but you need to be quite certain that the shades will suit him.
A Shirt or T-shirt
You can get him a stylish shirt or a “cool” T-shirt depending on what he usually wears. Be sure to check up on his size before purchasing the shirt, you don’t want to end up getting him something that is too tight or too loose.
A Gear for His Hobby
Let’s say your boyfriend is into star gazing as a hobby, it would be a great idea to get him a telescope (it’s not that expensive). Or if your boyfriend likes watching a sport like baseball, cricket or soccer from the stands, you can get him a pair of binoculars. If he is into gardening, you can gift him a certain accessory like garden tools or designer pots.
Gifting a pet is a great idea but only if your boyfriend is agreeable to rearing one. So be sure to check up with him, casually, on whether he would like to have a certain pet of his own. Guys usually like a have a dog as a pet, some like cats while some love fishes.
A Bottle of the Finest
If your boyfriend has a liking for a particular brand of whiskey, scotch, brandy or wine, you can make him quite happy by gifting him one or a couple of bottles. Don’t feel guilty about gifting alcohol, if your guy loves his drink it will make him happy and that’s all that counts. You can also gift him a set of wine glasses or whiskey glasses along with the bottle to make it even more special.
A Gaming Set
Most guys are quite crazy about video gaming. If you can afford it, you can get him the latest gaming gadget in the market. PS3 game boxes or PSP are hot gifting ideas for guys who have an inclination towards video games. You can also get him a new game CD for his gaming set if he already has one.
A Work of Art
Some guys love collecting works of art like small statuettes, paintings, caricatures, wood carvings or glass pieces. If you feel that your boyfriend has an “artistic” bone in him, it would be a good idea to gift him a “show case” item. It doesn’t have to be expensive at all. Some great ideas would be a “bottle” ship, a gladiator helmet, a pistol set or a wooden shield especially if your boyfriend has a penchant for the “historic” art.
Tickets for a Trip
If you guys share a close and intimate relationship you can head out for a vacation, for a couple days, following his birthday. You can get the tickets and hotel reservations for the trip as his birthday gift. Most guys love to travel so your boyfriend is quite likely to be trilled by the prospect of a travel vacation. Of course, this is can be quite an expensive gift so make sure it does not get you into financial backlog.
These are just a few ideas, you can come with many others depending on how creative you can get. Of course you don’t have to strain yourself too much thinking about it, remember that it’s the emotion that counts and not the gift. Whatever you gift be sure to add a huge dose of love along with it.
