Generally, men tend to prefer gifts that are practical in nature. While this doesn't mean that the sentiment behind them is irrelevant, it does mean that gifts that help a guy do the things he likes to do are a good bet. Knowing what your boyfriend enjoys will help you choose a gift that will really make him smile and make him feel as if you're supporting his hobbies and interests.

These are always great gifts for guys, especially the do-it-yourself types. If you're likely to get right in there with him, getting his and hers tool belts can be a cute, fun gift that has a practical use. Even if your guy isn't a handyman, getting him a small battery-powered drill and including a "honey-do list" can be a cute gift and he'll enjoy working with the new tool. Of course, this is where knowing your boyfriend comes in handy. Don't be too serious with your list and include fun projects that will appeal to him and his sense of humour.
If your boyfriend is one of those guys who likes to wear hats, get him a fun cowboy hat or just a ball cap with the logo of his favourite team. A ball cap gift can be even more fun if you place it under a cap for a team he hates. He'll frown and then you can uncover the real gift, showing him you know what his interests are. You can always then deface the cap of the team he doesn't like, making it a cute gift in its own right.
Fill a basket with all his favourite junk foods and have it delivered to his office. Not only will this make him smile, but it will also show him you know what his favourites are and that you're proud of him and want all his co-workers to know it.
We're not talking about another way to change channels, but rather remote-controlled vehicles like cars, motorcycles, even planes, boats and helicopters. These speak to his inner child and can be loads of fun, especially if your guy has a hard time relaxing. Pack a picnic, take him to the park and let him spend some time just enjoying your gift.
Collectibles and Hobbies
If you're guy is the collector type, or has a hobby he loves, collectibles he doesn't have yet or supplies for his hobby make a great gift. There doesn't even have to be a joke involved, as this kind of gift makes it clear that you know his interests and support them. And, it's particularly appropriate if you've ever rolled your eyes at his little "obsession."
