For some reason, the hardest people to shop for in your life are the men. Whether it be gifts for your brother, father, or boyfriend, finding just the right gift is difficult. Don’t worry, it’s something that everyone woman struggles with. You may know everything about your boyfriend but knowing what he wants for the holiday or his birthday seems impossible.
You know what he likes, but you want what you choose to be special and creative. Here are four creative gifts for boyfriends.
- All-In-One Bar Set. With a bar set that is all-in-one, you get both a functional device as well as an item for display. Your boyfriend may not even like to drink but it’s a talking point for guests, makes it look like he knows what he’s doing, and gives them a way to entertain their guests in a more interesting way.
A standard all-in-one bar set comes with a familiar corkscrew and a bottle opener as well as a citrus juicer, a jigger, and an ice bucket. The lid of the ice bucket can be used as a salt rimmer and wine bottle coaster for some models. Buy a recipe book to concoct some unique drinks and he’ll be happy. You can find sets like this one on the internet for about $15 to $30.
- Mini Photo Pro Lens Kit. For the boyfriend who enjoys photography, get him a kit that minimizes what he needs to take with him to get the perfect shot. Kits like this are made for attaching to your smartphone and enhancing your photos.
A standard mini lens kit will come with at least three lenses that will take his phone photography to the next level. A notable lens that people enjoy is the fisheye lens, which is made to capture scenery in 180 degrees. It can also come with a macro lens, which is meant to focus clearly on a subject that is less than an inch from the lens. Most kits come in a carrying case that includes a clip to secure the lens onto either his Android or Apple device. You can find these sets for a price of $15 to $30.
- Smashockey. During your boyfriend’s hard day at work, he’ll need to take a break. Scrolling through his phone can be boring, and there might not be much for him to do during this time. A great way to keep him entertained: Smashockey.
Smashockey is a desktop game that is double-sided and measures 12 inches wide and 24 inches long. It can be easily placed on top of a filing cabinet or between desks at their job. One side of the board is set up like a regular hockey rink with miniature sticks included. The other side is penny hockey where you use your hands instead of sticks. It’s great for the boyfriend that loves hockey and has a friend to play with during their downtime. You can find Smashockey on the internet for about $25.
