If you are like me, then finding your partner a present for a special occasion can be a nightmare. I find that men are so hard to shop for because they generally don’t seem to be bothered about the same stuff us women are interested in. For example, my dad a few years back only then chucked out shirts that were older than me and my siblings put together! So if you are looking for some advice on what to buy for your special one, look no further.
Peter Minkoff is one of my regular guest bloggers and you can always expect the best advice from his blogs. Check out his last one here. He’s a beauty and fashion writer for Shlur magazine living in London and occasionally in Brisbane. After graduating from Australian Institute of Creative Design, he worked as a stylist for few fashion events in UK and AUS. Beside beauty and fashion, he loves reading, making DIY cosmetics and traveling around tropical destinations. He plans to create a business for beauty and style advising. This week we’re looking at the Perfect Gifts For Your Boyfriend!
Oh my, is it already that time of the year? You realised it too late darling, didn’t you? You don’t have any inspiration and you’re now desperately scrolling through the internet, hoping you will find something good enough for your guy. What will he like? What does he want? You forgot every single thing he ever told you. Well, look no further honey, you have found what you’re looking for. We’re giving you the ULTIMATE list of carefully chosen ideas, to make sure your boyfriend gets the best birthday/Christmas/anniversary gift he ever got. Read carefully.
Spa honey, spa
Are you and your boyfriend hedonist types? If you are, is there any better solution than a spa day, or a massage treatment? A lot of spas now have special couple opportunities where you can basically have an entire spa just for yourselves for a whole day. Booking is simple, so the only thing you have to worry about is bringing your bathing suit and good mood and you’re good to go.
This also is a simple but yet very useful gift. You can buy him a nice perfume that you like (so it is basically a win-win situation here), or a shaving set for example. When you decide what will it be, you just wrap it nicely in a cute box and voila. If your boyfriend is a bearded fella a set of beard care products is a must too!
You can never go wrong with some usual gifts like a tie, wallet or a watch for example. They’re simple things he will always need and whenever he puts them on, he will think of you. If he likes to wear jewellery, you can buy him a nice ring or a necklace pendant and get it engraved, you know, a sweet little message that only you two will understand.
Gifts with sentimental value
Are you two a pair of hopeless romantics sailing through the ocean of your feelings for each other for eternity? If you’re not a fan of classic gifts, and you always need to add your special stamp on it, then this is a perfect solution for you (which, by the way, won’t cost you as much as other gifts can).
1) Take a large piece of thick paper and write down 100 things you love about him;
2) Make him a scrapbook out of your cute pictures, memories and screenshotted messages;
3) Make him a slideshow which includes your songs, pictures, and anecdotes;
He decided that he wants to change his habits and start working out, which is great. Now he will look even hotter when his muscles get bigger. The best part is: you can help him with that. How, you ask? You know what fitness supplements are? They’re substances that can help people to get in shape faster. A pack of organic rice protein powder and some is an unconventional choice, but it will still build those muscles. If he’s a little bit on the chubby side, you might as well add some L-Carnitine, to help him lose his belly faster.
If your boyfriend is a gamer, is there a better gift than a video game or a gaming console like PS4 for example, or an XBOX One? Be careful though, if you are buying him a game, you need to make sure that he doesn’t have it already, and if you are buying him a console, check if he is in team XBOX or team PS.
Is there anything more romantic than a nice dinner with your loved one? If you’re good at cooking, you can prepare his favourite meals and set the table in your backyard, terrace or at the top of your building, add some decorations and relaxing music, and there you have it – the most romantic night of his life. If you are not good at cooking you can make reservations at some nice restaurant and celebrate with some wine or champagne (this is only for those who are over 21! Don’t get crazy my dear fellow minors, your time is coming too.)
So there you have it honey, the ultimate 7, best of the best. If you somehow don’t think any of these will work, you can always go to his favourite store and get him a gift-card. Whatever you do, don’t get stressed about this, because, whatever get him, be sure that he will love it, because it’s from you – his favourite girl in the world.
