What Are Some Good Things to Get a Boyfriend for His Birthday?


Don't resign yourself to thinking that your boyfriend is "the guy that has everything." He doesn't. There are still some good things to get your boyfriend for his birthday. Invest some thought and effort in whatever you select or create and it's sure to put a smile on his face.

Something Gold

  • Gold accessories are associated with status and success. Give a boyfriend the Esquire look with a pair of gold cuff links, a classic gold watch, a money clip or a gold-encased fountain pen. Something unique for the modern guy may be a gold flash drive, which will help him transfer files and data in style. Plus, almost anything gold can be given the personal touch when you engrave it with your own birthday message.

Beer Accessories

  • The range of beer products and accessories is endless but there are some things that make good birthday presents for a boyfriend. Monogrammed or designer pint glasses are a good start. If your boyfriend has a favorite beer brand, there's a good chance the company sells its own style of glass or mug as well. A beer-making kit will bring out your boyfriend's inner mad chemist and keep him and his friends busy for about eight weeks. For something more experiential, find a nearby microbrewery and plan a weekend trip for your boyfriend, which should include a tour and tasting at the brewery.

Car Accessories

  • If you're getting a gift for a boyfriend who painstakingly details his car by hand, he'll be thrilled to get all of his favorite cleaning products, like soap, wax, car mitt, chamois cloth and window cleaner. Pack it all up in a bucket, which you can decorate like a basket. Car sound system accessories, like a radio receiver, speakers, amplifiers and sub-woofers make cool gifts for boyfriends. A gadget guy may also appreciate some of the new car accessories that allow him to access his iPhone, iPad, MP3 player or Archos media library while he's in the driver's seat.


  • A boyfriend doesn't have to be a hi-tech guy to appreciate some of the latest gadgets that are out there. An MP3 player, earbuds with a microphone, a tablet device or smart phone are all popular items to have for daily life. On the more unusual end of the scale are toys that read your Twitter feed aloud, a fish-eye lens that mounts to an iPhone or iPad or a re-chargable battery that powers your digital devices by USB cable.
