Finding the Perfect Christmas Present for My Boyfriend

Your holiday gift-guide just got easier. 

Finding the perfect present for your loved ones during Christmastime can be difficult, but when it comes to that special someone in your life, well, that’s a whole different story.
My boyfriend of two years is a cook, plays guitar and loves video games (a little too much, if you ask me), so choosing his present can be challenging at times. No worries, thoughI’ve discovered that when it comes to buying the perfect gift for any guy, shopping can be enjoyable.

1) Espresso Machine
DeLonghi Moka Electric Espresso Maker, $59.95

Espresso Machine: My boyfriend, Mike, is not a morning person. Instead of saying “Good morning,” he says, “Don’t speak until I get my coffee.” Buying an espresso machine for him would be a fitting gift since he’s always wanted one, and if it can cure his morning crankiness that much sooner then, well, it’s a win-win.

2) and 3) A plaid shirt and jeans

Old Navy Mens Flannel Sherpa Lined Shirt Jackers – Navy/red plaid, $25.99

Old Navy Mens Premium Loose Fit Jeans – Blue Vintage, $25.00

Clothing: I have, as most women do, taken over mine and my boyfriend’s shared closet. You could say that the ratio is approximately 95 per cent my clothes, 5 per cent his. While my idea of a wardrobe consists of a copious amount of clothes, shoes, purses, scarves and undergarments, his consists of a few pairs of pants, some boxers, shirts and socks. So, do I really need to explain why getting him clothes is a good idea? 

4) Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto V: Special Edition (Xbox 360), $79.99

Video games: Buying a video game for my boyfriend always causes a lot of hesitation. For one, he gets completely obsessed with them. And two, it causes problems in our relationship since I end up as the nagging girlfriend who insists he turn off the game or (to his horror) step in front of the TV. However, I have come to learn that boys will be boys and getting him exactly what he wants (video games, included) makes for a happy Christmas.  

5) Knife set

Top Chef Santoku Stainless Steel Knife Set, $64.99

Knife set: Mike loves to cookboth at work and at home, so supplying him with the right kitchen tools is a no-brainer. Plus, it may encourage him to cook delicious meals for us on the daily.

6) Memory Foam Pillow

Sealy(R) Cool Choice Contour Memory Foam Pillow, $50

Memory foam pillow: I have an amazing memory foam pillow, but when I wake up in the morning, I find that it has snuck over to my boyfriend’s side of the bed. Not cool. Buying him his own memory foam pillow should solve this issue and benefit both of us in the long-run.

7) Guitar Strings

Alice Steel Acoustic Guitar Strings, $9.19

Guitar strings: Guitar strings=perfect stocking stuffer!

8) Suit

Gentle Shaping Single Button Men's Suit, $49.99

Suit: While suits have a way of making men look like the next James Bond, they also serve a greater purpose to add that formal, professional touch to interviews or special events.

9) Movie

The Godfather Collection, $40.29 (found on Target)

Movie: Mike has to be one of the last few people who actually still collects DVDs, but there’s one movie he’s had his eye on for a while now: the Godfather collection. Buying him the collection will satisfy his needs and it can double as a movie for date night.

10) Sushi Kit

Sushi Chef Sushi Making Kit, $35.99

Sushi kit: Mike and I are sushi addicts. We usually grab some on the weekends, but that’s not ideal for a couple’s budget. A sushi kit will definitely solve this dilemma.

I hope these presents have provided you with inspiration on what to get your guy for Christmas. Merry Christmas!
