It can be hard to think of the perfect gift for your boyfriend. There are many cheap Christmas gifts that all men will enjoy, and can save the day if you’re not sure what to buy him. Other gifts are much more personal. Before you choose a Christmas gift for your boyfriend, you should find out about what he likes and what he already has. Here are a few great ideas for cheap Christmas gifts that will please a wide range of different men, including romantics, jocks, jet-setters and geeks.
The best Christmas gifts for your boyfriend are gifts that say, “I love you.” A personalized gift will express your love more than anything else you could buy. Consider framing a picture of the two of you together as a Christmas gift. You can also put your picture on a mug, a T-shirt, a puzzle or calendar. If you’re living together, think about getting his and hers personalized coffee mugs, keychains, towels or pillowcases. Other romantic gift ideas include a love letter in a bottle, massage oils or a massage kit. You could also make your boyfriend a homemade romantic gift for Christmas. Bake a batch of heart-shaped cookies and slather them in red icing. Or assemble a scrapbook full of photos of wonderful moments you have spent together.
If your boyfriend loves sports, there are plenty of cheap Christmas gifts you could give him. If his favorite sport is football, you could buy him some beer glasses engraved with the logo of his favorite team. If golf is his favorite sport, buy him a set of golf-themed Christmas ornaments or a golf keepsake frame with a picture of him on the green. If he loves soccer, you could buy him a shirt based on the jersey of his favorite team. If his game is baseball, you could buy him a personalized baseball or a baseball-shaped picture frame. If it’s basketball that he adores, consider buying him a basketball clock or a mug shaped like a basketball.
No matter which sport he’s a fan of, you could buy him gear to make him more comfortable while he watches the game. For example, buy him a seat cushion or heated vest if he likes to attend live games. If he prefers to watch the game at home, get him a bottle holder for his beer and large sports-themed containers for his snacks.
If your boyfriend travels a lot, get him a cheap gift that makes his time on the road easier and more enjoyable. Buy him a convenient travel case for his toiletries, a well-organized carry on bag, a key organizer or a travel mug. To keep him entertained while he’s on the go, get him a travel sized game such as a chess or backgammon set. A travel gadget charger may also be a welcome Christmas gift. For the boyfriend who travels internationally, buy a personalized passport cover or a set of power adapters.
Gadgets make a great cheap Christmas gift for any boyfriend. You could buy him a speaker dock for his iPod or MP3 player. If he’s concerned about the environment, you could get him a wind up flashlight or a solar charger for his cell phone and laptop. You could also buy a wide range of cool USB gadgets, such as a combo USB flash drive and bottle opener, a USB stress ball, a USB car adapter, a USB memory watch, a roll-up keyboard or a decorative USB hub.
