Make a gift for your boyfriend even more special by having it engraved. Engraving an item will allow you to customise it with a special date, quote, saying or message. You can also personalise a gift with your boyfriend's name or initials. If you're searching for a gift to engrave, look for metal, wood or glass items.


Surprise your boyfriend with a stylish watch for his birthday or as a holiday gift. Choose a stainless steel, silver or gold watch depending on your boyfriend's personal style. Pick a durable watch featuring quartz movement and a scratch-resistant crystal face. If your boyfriend is into sports, look for a waterproof watch featuring a stopwatch. Have the back of the watch engraved with your boyfriend's initials or a small message, such as "I love you."

Split Key Chain

If you're on a tight budget but looking for a sentimental gift for your boyfriend, pick a personalised key chain. Choose a gold or silver-tone metal heart-shaped key chain featuring two matching halves; give one half to your boyfriend and keep one for yourself. Have his half engraved with his name, an "I love you" message and the date you met and have your half engraved with your name and the date.

Customised Cuff Links

If your boyfriend frequently dresses up for work or other events, treat him to a pair of customised cuff links. Choose stainless steel, sterling silver or gold links, depending on the recipient's preference. As a personalised touch, look for cuff links featuring shapes to reflect your boyfriend's hobbies, such as basketballs or golf balls. You can also have the links enhanced with the recipient's birthstone, such as emerald or sapphire. Have your boyfriend's monogram engraved on the front or back of the cuff links.

Personalised Photo Frame

Your boyfriend can display a personalised photo frame on his work desk or in a home office. Pick a silver metal or dark wood frame and have it engraved with the date you started dating or a special love poem or quote. Fill the frame with a favourite photo of the two of you prior to presenting the gift.
