Boyfriends can be picky when it comes to gifts and special occasions. Sometimes giving the perfect gift means giving something handmade or extra special between you and your boyfriend. Giving a special gift doesn't mean it has to cost a fortune and be limited edition. Keeping it simple is sure to please, whether it's a birthday, holiday or milestone anniversary.
Practical gifts are well-received by most men because it's something they wouldn't think to give themselves. A scarf, hat and gloves are simple but practical, especially for a winter birthday or holiday. A new snazzy wallet is something men love but wouldn't gift themselves. If your boyfriend never gets time to shop for himself, clothes are a good option for simple gifts. A new sweater and jeans goes a long way for a no-nonsense guy.
For a simple, budget-friendly gift option, consider a homemade gift for the special man in your life. Baked goods are the classic go-to here, but think outside the box a bit. If he loves taffy apples in the fall, make him a batch in the spring time at home. If you happen to be crafty, knit a scarf or sew a quilt for the two of you to cuddle under the next time you have a night in.
Nothing says simple like a photograph from a favourite memory. If you went on vacation a few years ago and haven't got away since, find a photo from your holiday and frame it. If you prefer something slightly more involved, build a photo book online. You can upload an entire collection of photos and personalise the book with a special message, place your order and it will be delivered to his door.
Sometimes the quickest way to a man's heart is, in fact, through his stomach. Offer to cook a special meal on the day of the occasion. Ask him for ideas and consider his favourite foods. Ultimately, make it romantic and fancy and he'll be impressed. If you're not a queen of the kitchen, order in and bake a simple dessert. He will surely appreciate homemade cheesecake or chocolate cookies.
