Love Quotes Collage

For a romantic gift for your boyfriend, gather up the love letters, poems and messages you have written to him and use them to create a collage. Look through the letters and poems and choose several quotes from the letters. Write these quotes on separate pieces of paper and paste the quotes to a piece of card stock or poster paper with photographs from your relationship. Finish the collage with a nice picture frame.

Personal Accessories

Men appreciate practical gifts, which make personal accessories a good choice for your boyfriend. These include items such as grooming kits or accessories, watches, cuff links or tie stays, wallets, men's rings or bracelets, shoes or clothing items. Put together a gift set of personal grooming supplies such as razors, shaving cream, soap, shampoo and scissors. Choose a nice tie to go with the cuff links and tie stay.

Ear Buds or Headphones

If you have a boyfriend who spends a lot of time on his computer or listening to his MP3 player, consider getting him a new set of ear buds or headphones. These items are perfect for an MP3 player and come in a variety of types, brands, colours and price ranges. Choose a pair of noise-cancelling headphones if your boyfriend lives in a dorm room or other place where he would like to listen to his music without distractions from outside noise.

Engraved Bar Accessories

Choose from a variety of bar items and accessories to be engraved for a personalised gift. Items that can be engraved include beer mugs and tankards, cocktail or wine glasses, a bottle opener or corkscrew, coasters, water buckets, Pilsners, flasks and shot glasses. Have his initials, name or a special birthday message engraved on the items. These types of items are found at gift shops and stores that do their own engraving such as Things Remembered.

Car-Wash Gift Basket

A car-wash gift basket is perfect for the boyfriend who has an avid interest in cars and enjoys taking care of his. Use a water bucket as the "basket" and fill it with soap, wax, window cleaner, paper towels, sponges and dry cloths. Other items to include in the gift basket are air fresheners, leather polish for the seats, a squeegee and new wiper blades.
