Your boyfriend’s birthday should be made in to a special day. You should learn what he really wants so that you can make that day memorable. However, to make it special you will have to understand what you shouldn’t get him.
You shouldn’t choose something that directly relates to your relationship. You aren’t celebrating your anniversary so get him a birthday gift and will be focused on his desires. You can save the mushy gifts for another time. You don’t want something he is just going to crack a smile at before burying it away for good.
Don’t get a generic gift that his friends would probably buy him. Buying him something that he really wants and has strong emotions to will help let him know that you care for him deeply. Even if it’s something you don’t like, because it’s not your birthday after all.
Make sure he doesn’t already possess the item. You may have to ask his friends or family members without his knowledge to get a feel for what it is that he wants.
If you don’t have gadgets on your list, add it now. Men love to figure out new toys and play with them, no matter their age. I’m not suggesting that you spend thousands of dollars on a new computer for him. You can keep within your budget while still affording a gadget that he will find interesting and useful.
If there is a gift that you can enjoy together, then that may be suitable in some cases. Make sure that the gift is all about him and not mostly about you. Buying a pair of tickets to a chick flick is probably one of the worst things you could do since he probably will struggle to even stay in the theatre to watch it. Sports guys love to see the action closer, so get him some great tickets. You could buy him a game that he has been waiting to buy. Just the fact that you tried to get him something that he likes will be a major win for you.
Give him something unique. Unique as in something special he doesn’t know about what he is passionate about. EBay and Amazon can help you out on picking out unique boyfriend birthday gifts. Try giving him something you know he’ll enjoy.
It’s his birthday so get him something that he can have for himself. Do your best don’t worry too much, and I’m sure you will please him on his birthday.
