Finding the best birthday present for your boyfriend may be challenging, but it isn't impossible. Remember that bigger isn't always better and the gift doesn't have to cost a fortune. Simple, inexpensive gifts are just as meaningful. Look at the things your boyfriend already owns or what he purchases for himself to get ideas for a gift. Also, don't be afraid to ask questions, the more you know the easier it will be to find the perfect birthday present.

Media Gifts

Give your boyfriend a media-related present for his birthday. Gift ideas include a magazine or newspaper subscription, books, DVDs and CDs. If your boyfriend enjoys sports, has a particular hobby or is interested in cooking, subscribe him to a magazine that is tailored to his interests. Alternatively, consider purchasing a book or set of books from his favourite author. If your beau is interested in visual media, give him an assortment of his favourite movies or the complete series of his favourite television show. A gift card to an online music store also makes a good birthday present.

Engraved Gifts

Engraved gifts can add a personalised, special touch to your boyfriend's birthday present. Engrave a keychain, belt buckle, bracelet or watch with your boyfriend's initials or a special sentiment to reflect how you feel about him and your relationship. For the workaholic boyfriend, engrave a decorative paperweight or desk clock for him to display in his office.

Gift Baskets

Whether your boyfriend enjoys golfing, fishing or watching movies, consider putting together a personalised gift basket based on his interests and hobbies. If he is a golfing enthusiast, fill a container with tees, personalised golf balls, golf gloves and bottled water. For the man that loves to fish, fill a tackle box with new fishing lures, fishing line and a gift card to his favourite bait shop. If your boyfriend enjoys movies, fill a large popcorn bowl with his favourite movies, as well as some movies he's never seen before and a variety of candy and popcorn.

Grooming Products

Don't be afraid to pamper your man. A grooming set that includes a razor, brush, shave and aftershave products make for a practical yet luxurious gift. Or give the gift of cologne, lotion and body wash. Choose fragrances that will compliment each other as well as your boyfriend's personality. Smell samples of the fragrances before buying to help you make the best purchase. You can purchase a cologne, lotion and body wash gift set at most retail department stores.
