Yes, he might have said that he doesn’t want anything for Christmas. No, you should never, ever believe him! You can tell him a hundred different things by choosing your boyfriend an awesome Christmas gift, even if he insists that he doesn’t want anything. Here are our top picks for Christmas gifts for boyfriends in 2012!
1. Christmas Hamper
When you give a hamper to your boyfriend, it’s more than just the ‘thing’ – it’s the promise of shared relaxation, an excuse to curl up in front of a fire, something to make a hiking trip extra special, some sustenance for an awesome day out exploring a new place. As Christmas gifts, hampers are a lot more than they seem! Check out our full Christmas hamper range!
2. Experience Gifts
Most men on this planet love to go fast … really fast … and a driving experience voucher will let them do so legally and safely! You could also give him a voucher to learn to dive, to fly a helicopter or plane, or go abseiling. Check out any of the ‘experience gift’ companies.
3. Outdoor Games
A footy, an archery set, even a totem tennis pole or a pair of giant water pistols that you can have fun with over summer – it doesn’t have to be competitive, it just has to be an excuse to get outside and play together!
4. Aftershave or Cologne
Often men love cologne but won’t buy it for themselves – Christmas is a great excuse to do so. If you don’t know his tastes yet, get him a sampler.
5. Massage Voucher
Especially great for those who work hard and play hard.
6. Hardware Gift Card
If your boyfriend is always banging things, taking things apart to see what they look like inside and planning projects, give him an excuse to start a new one with a hardware gift voucher!
7. Magazine Gifts
Something useful to pop in their other hand while drinking a beer or glass of wine – a magazine subscription keeps on giving throughout the year.
8. Movie or Concert Tickets
It’s not so much the gift, but the opportunity to get out, do something different, relax … and do it all together.
