Boyfriend’s birthday round the corner? Surprise him with gifts he will love you for!


No matter how well you know your boyfriend, or how long you have been together, it is always a nightmare to buy a birthday gift for him. Boyfriends never seem to like anything; nor do they indicate what they might want. So, what do you do? It is tough.

But we are here to help you. Consider these wonderful gifts, and watch the love grow.

  • An elaborate meal cooked by you

Surely you have heard of that age-old saying — way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Let’s face it – men love to eat! And if your boyfriend has a healthy appetite, there is nothing he will appreciate more than a meal cooked by you that has all his favourite dishes. Gals, this is not the day to count calories and remind him of healthy eating and exercise. Let him have his day.

  • Tickets for that cricket match

Of course this is conditional on a cricket match being played in your city of residence, but if you are in luck and a match is underway on his birthday, it will be the best birthday gift you ever give him. Do not insist on going with him. If you do manage to buy two tickets, let him take his buddy. Remember, boys like to hang out with other boys, and they do not want you around when they are going to make fools of themselves, shouting and jumping like monkeys.

  • Jackets for all occasions

Rarely will you come across a guy who does not love to wear a jacket. Be it a denim jacket, or a leather jacket, or any other kind, guys love to wear them. It makes them feel sporty and racy. While a leather jacket could be a tad more expensive, you can always satisfy him with a denim jacket.

  • Tees with slogans

That’s another thing that most guys fall for – a tee shirt with a quirky slogan. Now ladies, you have to understand that men have a different sense of humour, compared to women. What you might consider raunchy or not in good taste, a guy might find just too funny. Look for a tee with an off-beat message and tell him to wear it on his birthday. You will share many laughs.

  • Backpacks

It is quite possible that your boyfriend already has one, but giving him a better-looking backpack won’t hurt. If your guy is into gymming and sports, he would welcome another backpack that can substitute as his gym bag.

In addition to these fab ideas, there are always wallets, belts, shoes and socks. Or a pair of jeans. Whatever it is, gift it with love.
