The Top 5 Christmas Gift Ideas For Your Boyfriend
Not sure what to get your boyfriend for Christmas? Believe me, I’ve been there, done that, and have the frown lines to prove it. Look no further though, because I have a list of the top five Christmas gift ideas for your boyfriend.
This is one item that all men need. It is a sure-fire gift that won’t be turned away. It may not be used the first day or even the first month, but rest assured it will be used! Wallets are wonderful gifts because there is such a wide variety of them. Something really neat about them is the ability to have them monogrammed. Whether it’s with initials, a full name, or simply “I Love You”. I know I struggled with gift ideas when we had only been dating a few months and realized a wallet is a great gift no matter how long you’ve been dating. That same boyfriend I mentioned in the “we” is now my husband and guess what? He still uses the wallet I gave him almost six years ago!
A Grilling/BBQ Set
Okay, I will admit: this is a dual-purpose gift. If your boyfriend is anything like my husband-grilling/cooking out/BBQing is his favorite pastime. The second part of this gift: FOOD. That’s right! You reap the benefits of eating some really good home-cooked food.
A Tool Set
Now, I don’t mean one of those giant ones with the wheels and a million drawers to hold every tool you can think of. I mean a small portable set. These are perfect for glove boxes or consoles. These don’t usually come with a whole lot of tools, but they do come with just the right amount to help you out if you ever get in a pinch. Not to mention, who doesn’t love tools?!
A Tool Bag
If the tool-set I previously mentioned is too small for the type of gift you want to give, a tool bag will definitely do the trick. They are perfect for the trunk or an attached toolbox on a truck. They hold a lot of tools and they aren’t as big as a traditional toolbox. Plus the bags have pockets on the outside that can hold gloves, pocket-sized hand warmers, flashlights- you name it.
This is by far my favorite gift to give. My Dad told me many years ago “no one can have too many knives, babygirl,” Like the wallet I mentioned earlier, these can also be personalized. I think it is a great idea, especially if you have more than one person in your household that you are gifting the same type of knife too. I know the last thing I would want is people arguing over who the knife belongs to. A great one with high quality and built in the USA is this Leatherman.
A Smartwatch (Bonus)
Smartwatches today no longer have to be expensive! I recently checked out prices for smartwatches for kids and was surprised that smartwatches are much more affordable than they were years ago. I think this is a gift you should be very sure about but if your boyfriend is into sports (which he hopefully is), you might find a specific and very suitable smartwatch.
Whether you’ve only been dating a month or you’ve been dating ten years, these ideas will make great gifts. Now, take a deep breath, relax, and know that some of your gift ideas have already been checked off of your list.
