Boyfriend can be great – it’s almost impossible to buy a gift that they go out and buy themselves pretty much whatever they want. They are also super shy when it comes to what they need, which is why finding thoughtful gifts for a new boyfriend is generally a dreaded task (don’t generalize – some BF’s want things and are specific about their desires, and for that we are grateful). If your boyfriend cab cook, you might try to see if he needs a new cast iron pan (to prepare gourmet meals, of course) or try it out with home office accessories that might make your day-to-day easier. But, chances are he won’t give you any gift advice.
Have no fear, we’re here to help give you the 411 on what your boyfriend really wants this gifting season, whether he’s the sweet and sentimental type or a total techie. Keep scrolling to see our top picks for what to get your boyfriend on any occasion.

How to find a Perfect Birthday Gift for Boyfriend?
Men have a (sometimes well-deserved) reputation for being difficult to please when it comes to shopping for them. The pressure is doubled when it comes to finding the perfect gift for her birthday. Despite how unlikely it seems, every lady is more than capable of finding the birthday present for her boyfriend that he’ll love.
Think About the Hobbies of Your Boyfriend
What does he do in his spare time? What is he reading or watching as videos? What does he spend his money on? Thinking about these kinds of questions will get you started on the right gift choice for your companion. Anything that helps him indulge in his hobbies would certainly make him happy.
Put yourself in his skin. Think about what he could buy if he had the money to treat himself. Those who do this tend to give gifts that the recipient loves more often than people who don’t bother to see it the other way.
Pay Attention to Everything he Says
He is aware that his birthday is approaching and that you are bound to give him something as usual. He’ll probably try to help you with this by throwing a few ideas into your regular conversations. Hope to hear these ideas about three or four weeks before the birthday. If he brings something out a few times, then it’s an idea that you should definitely dig deeper into.
Depending on your boyfriend’s personality, these ideas can be subtle. He may not be blunt and say that he would really love if someone offered him the collection edition of his favorite series. He’s more likely to say something like this if he’s trying to be more reserved “I saw this set released a few weeks ago, it was really great!”
Find out From Friend and Family
He might feel more comfortable discussing what he wants for his birthday with his friends and family than with you. Talk to them in their absence to see if they have any ideas that might help you. If you decide to do something that they have suggested, be sure to ask them to keep it a secret.
Consult with Your Common Friends
Your boyfriend may be spending a lot of time with your friends. If you’re stressed out about finding the best gift for your companion, ask your girlfriends for advice. They will be able to give you ideas on what kind of gift their boyfriend appreciates and what would be nice to give to yours.
Ask your Boyfriend for Ideas
Not everyone can guess the best present desired by the birthday party. If you’ve exhausted all avenues and are unable to come up with great ideas, ask your boyfriend for suggestions. Indeed, the gifts that people ask for are often the most appreciated.
Don’t ask for specific things. Try to get him to say he wants cute winter accessories rather than a red wool hat with gray patterns from a specific store. Imagine the following with everything you know about your boyfriend and you can identify the perfect gift that he would appreciate.
