When I typed "what to get your boyfriend for Christmas" into Google, I received over a billion search results. Which isn't particularly surprising—buying presents for guys is kind of difficult!—but isn't exactly helpful, either. If your boyfriend isn't particularly materialistic or vocal about his wish list, you have nothing to go on., so you're stuck making a list of things he might like or reach out to his closest guy friends to figure out his hidden wishes. Before you send that mass group text, hold on: I found dozens of great gifts for your boyfriend, from the surprisingly affordable to the super luxe, to get you started. This Christmas, we promise you won't be stuck wrapping up a tie. Once you're done finding a present for your guy, check out the best gifts for your mom and sister—you are on a gift-giving roll this year.
