We’ve all been there – overthinking the perfect birthday gifts for boyfriends in an attempt to make their day special while keeping away from the generic socks and chocolate options.
After all, what do you get the man of your dreams when he already has everything he could ever need and more? You!
There’s really no topping you being his birthday treat, but if we’re being completely honest about it, but you can’t exactly claim to be his gift every year. It may have been cute the first time, but the novelty has worn off…
So, the only thing left to do is to try and find boyfriend birthday gifts that are almost as awesome as you.
What Should I Get My Boyfriend for His Birthday?
Sometimes it’s a no brainer. You can get him the new Liverpool jersey he’s been going on about, or a new set of golf clubs because his current set hasn’t really aged well.
If this is one of the years where no real direction or hints are obvious, don’t stress. We’ve compiled a list of birthday gift ideas for your boyfriend that’s sure to have something he’ll love! For the foodie to the sportsman, the discerning gentleman and the adrenaline junkie, there’s something for your man right here!
Coffee from Around the World
Does your boyfriend’s day not start until he’s had his first sip of coffee? Make mornings a treat with a coffee subscription that arrives on his doorstep. You can indulge his java craving in a way that he’ll love just about as much as he loves you!
Every month, he’ll receive a selection of freshly roasted coffee from some of the world’s best suppliers. He’ll enjoy a veritable world tour as he tastes blends from Colombia, Kenya, Tanzania, and beyond. Plus, he’ll get to learn more about the brew and how to make the most of it. Now that’s every coffee connoisseur’s dream come true.
Wine tastings are a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon, but a birthday is a special occasion, so you want to make a splash! Kick it up a notch with an underwater wine tasting experience that’s so much more than just a few tipples and a palate cleanser. The Sea Mystery, or Navis Mysterium, is an underwater winery off the coast of Greece providing this once in a lifetime experience.
A Beautifully Aged Cognac
If your man enjoys the finer things in life, a bottle of LOUIS XIII Cognac should do the trick. Some of these bottles are over 100 years old and are the perfect addition to any collection. It also offers a superb sensory experience when tasting and drinking, so the choice to store or swill is completely his.
An At-Home Whisky Tasting Experience
With the pandemic still a reality, going out may not always be an option. So, why not treat your man to a whisky tasting at home with some mini malt barrels? It’ll definitely be an unexpected gift and the mini barrels could easily double as bar décor as well.
Novelty Beer Glass
If you’re dating a man’s man that loves nothing more than enjoying a cold one with the boys, stop looking. This is the funny gift idea for your boyfriend that tops all others. Yes, it’s a beer mug shaped like a dumbbell. It’s basically the best of both worlds if you ask me.
Everyone loves a sweet treat every once in a while, so why not order a special birthday hamper packed with your boyfriend’s favourite treats? There are a ton of options available, some of which you can even customise to make sure that it’s perfect. This one will score you brownie points for sure.
Classic Car Drive
Why not spend the day cruising through the British countryside in a beautiful classic car? Follow the specialised routes, stop for picnics and, of course, experience the ultimate driving experience.
If classic cars and leisurely driving are not quite on the right track, give him the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a supercar and race it around one of the chosen race tracks in your area.
For the man with his head in the clouds, why not get him a Stellarscope? It’s never been easier to view constellations or get an accurate reading of the sky. Plus, this is an ultra-romantic birthday gift for boyfriend as you get to spend time together gazing at the stars. All you need to do is look for the constellation using the star maps and you’ll be able to view it in all of its shining glory.
If you’re looking for the birthday gift for a boyfriend who has everything, head on over to the Hawking Centre where you can get up close and personal with falcons and other birds of prey. Spend the day learning about these magnificent beasts while touring the grounds of Eastwell Manor.
Dine Out At A Gordon Ramsay Restaurant
We’re sure you know who Gordon Ramsay is. And that he has a way with words…
You also know that he has a way with food and his restaurants whip up exceptional dishes that need to be experienced at least once in a lifetime.
