When I typed "what to buy your boyfriend" into Google, I received over 887 million search results. Not particularly surprising—buying presents for guys is kind of difficult!—or helpful. If your S.O. isn't particularly materialistic or vocal about his wish list, you have nothing to go on. The best thing to do in this case is make 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, however, I brainstormed 46 gift ideas, from the surprisingly affordable to the super luxe, to help get you started. Whether it's the holidays, his birthday, or your anniversary, 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 mama and sister—you are on a gift-giving roll this year.
If your guy is dedicated to environmental causes and living with an eco-friendly mindset, then a gift from Pangaia is well suited for him. This hoodie checks off the boxes for using environmentally-friendly dyes and being made from both recycled and organic cotton. The label's pieces sell out quickly, for both men and women, so get 'em while they're still available,
Convince him to give up the idea that "one product does it all" by getting him hooked on this sulfate-free body wash from Organic Bath Co. It's infused with moisturizing plant oils and comes in several scents such as lavender and peppermint, though fragrance-free options are available too.
If he's always complaining about the temperature, he just needs to give in and wear a scarf already. He won't have to worry about the wind climbing down his sweater or dress shirts anymore when he wraps this warm patch knit scarf around his neck.
New kitchen gear like this popular pan from Our Place is just the thing he needs to remind him that cooking can be fun and easy. He'll enjoy experimenting with a new recipe (you'll enjoy reaping the delicious rewards) once he finds out that this space-saving pan comes with a steam tray and a wooden spoon. The pan can braise, sear, steam, strain, sauté, fry, boil, serve, and more.
Your S.O. might spend most nights sleeping in his boxers, but he'll change his mind when he feels these comfy pajamas. The navy windowpane-plaid print will fly with even the pickiest dressers.
Tap into his artsy side with this piece by Keith Haring, an American artist whose pop art and graffiti-like work grew out of '80s NYC street culture. This piece, in particular, uses graphics inspired by Egyptian hieroglyphics while the artwork itself is printed on responsibly-made skateboards by The Skateroom, which merges impactful artists, museums, buyers, and non-profits with skate culture to create social change.
Whether he is an early bird or late comer, this watch will keep him on schedule. The all-black face is sleek with stainless steel accents and the watch features eco-drive technology that's powered by any type of light so it never needs a battery.
His winter uniform is a flannel over a t-shirt and jeans. Gift him this cozy slim-fit piece that will satisfy all his flannel needs. It's perfect for wearing while sipping hot chocolate indoors or for layering under with a jacket on outdoor hikes.
He doesn't believe in checking in bags and frankly, he might be on to something. Since his carry-on could definitely use a refresh from all his trips, get him this fashionable Ferragamo carry-on. It looks luxurious and smart.
He survived all summer in his baseball cap, but come winter it'll be time to trade that in for something a little warmer like this knit beanie. The hat is made from 100 percent cotton and when it's too stretched out, simply put the beanie into the dryer to shrink it back to its original snug fit.
He loves poker night with the guys, so surprise him with a brand new deck of cards. Then, recycle his beer-stained, sticky old deck.
He works in a casual office environment, so he's not the briefcase-toting type of guy. In fact, he swears by backpacks. Gift him with the latest style from Herschel, which can hold up to a 15-inch laptop, water bottles, and more.
He's been a fan of Androids since day one, so you'll have to get him Google's latest phone: the Pixel 4a. Not only is the camera amazing at 12.2 MP (you'll find yourself stealing his phone to take pics), but the smaller size is great for slipping into his back pockets. Other pluses to this device include a headphone jack, a crisp display, and 3 plus years of software updates.
He likes to walk around the house in his boxers and that's fine, but when guests are over he can still feel just as comfortable (but covered up) in this soft robe. Be prepared to get him a second one, because he'll wear this plush piece down to the very last thread.
Candle and non-candle lovers alike will be intrigued by this decor piece from Gucci. The black marble print porcelain lid with a hand and key detail are the first things to grab your attention before your eyes wander to the Gucci logo. The candle will give off aromas of Seville oranges, jasmine, leather, and salt.
You’ve accepted the fact that sweats will always be his go-to (sigh). Get him a pair you won’t be embarrassed for him to leave the apartment in, like these Fear of God fleece bottoms. They play right into the whole athelsiure trend.
For a pair of sneakers he can wear on the weekends and to the office, gift him these black kicks. He can match this to everything in his wardrobe, from a full suit to sweats. Come Monday, he'll walk into that meeting armed with brilliant ideas and style.
When the '40s meets 2020, you get this record player. It has a low-vibration synchronous motor, shock absorbent feet, steel platter, manual tonearm and dual speeds in addition to a minimalist MDF plinth. Just connect to speakers and sit back with a glass of wine while enjoying the music.
After you’ve gotten him a gift, tack on this little side piece for something he won’t be expecting. Channel some of Rihanna’s sultry and fierce energy on date night in this Savage x Fenty white lace corset.
He always makes fun of you for over stuffing your purse, but he's also the first one to ask "hey, can you hold this in your bag?" Put a stop to this by gifting him a bag of his own. This fanny pack is stylish, cool, and just the kind of accessory he needs to step up his fashion game.
He's been thinking about getting a ring, but not sure about the style. Start him off with this simple ring made by artisans in France from recycled, hand brushed sterling silver.
He hasn't stopped talking about that ski trip with his boys since he booked it, so just wait until he unwraps this baby. He will be ecstatic. These mirrored goggles come in plenty of colors and will ensure he stays safe and comfortable on the mountain. Grab yourself a pair while you're at it.
A little spritz goes a long way with any fragrance, so he'll be set for months to come with this set of four bottles. The travel-size-appropriate sprays contain notes such as orange zest, dewy magnolia blossom, black peppercorn, leather, mahogany, and more. If you find you're in love with the fragrances, too, dab some on.
Help him pack in an organized manner with this Away mini case that resembles the brand's iconic suitcases. Not only is it adorably cute (hm, I might get one for myself) but it also ensures he doesn't just toss everything into his carry-on—like he usually does.
Your guy has seen every Marvel movie...twice. He'll love this realistic-looking Groot device holder that will keep his gaming controllers off the coffee table. (The latter part is more for you though, you hate when he leaves those things lying around.)
Shopping isn't his favorite activity, so his shoe collection is abysmal. Give him this fashionable but functional all-weather boot from Nisolo to help give his outfits a little style boost. Not only is the boot handmade in an ethical, family-run factory in León, Mexico, but it'll also last for years to come and is perfect for walking in in any terrain.
His apartment is lacking some serious greenery, so you'll rectify that with this snake plant. They're easy to care for and low maintenance, which is perfect for his busy schedule and his lack of a green thumb.
Don't forget about his dog when gifting! After you've presented him with his present, pull out this cute Stutterheim dog raincoat for his furry BFF. The outerwear is available in a few sizes still and features adjustable velcro straps around the neck and stomach.
Somehow, he always forgets an umbrella. Gift him this Hunter waterproof coat, which will make sure he stays dry, whether he's biking in the rain or walking from the train to the office.
So he spends all his time in the kitchen and loves Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations? Then he will definitely appreciate this cookbook from his culinary hero. Help him test drive the recipes by offering to cook a meal together or let him take the reins and make you dinner.
