13 Gift ideas no man can resist


The men in your life love gifts. They may not say it openly or even try to shrug it off, but nothing makes a guy happier than a gift, especially a surprise gift. It makes him feel loved, cherished, appreciated, and thought of. No man will ever reject a gift, in any given situation.

Even the simplest gestures like a note or ticket to a movie he has been excited about for a while will always be appreciated. So, if you are looking for tips on gift ideas that no man can resist, you will find them here. 

For your boyfriend

Guys are always looked at as the provider, the one to remember special occasions and make them memorable. But, relationships should never be a one-sided affair. Spending quality time with him will not replace the feeling of excitement when he gets a present or gift.

So, surprising your boyfriend with something romantic will always make his day.

You do not need a special occasion to get him a present. It is expected that he gets something during occasions like his birthday, valentines day, your anniversary, special dates and so on. But getting him a surprise gift to remind him you love him will be appreciated. 

Some romantic gift ideas include a personal gift. This is generally something meaningful to him. You can make it personalized by giving it a special touch; his name or initials will be a good start. You can find a wide variety of personalized gifts for men here, so you don’t need to worry about how to make him feel special.  

  • Guys are obsessed with sports. Get him something that reminds him of his favorite team. A backpack, hat, merchandise, or even a season ticket to his favorite team’s games. You can poke a little fun by buying a shirt for his team’s arch-rivals.
  • More personalized gifts include tickets to his favorite band or a movie he has been very excited about for a while. Pay for a night-out trip for him and the boys, or a hunting or fishing expedition. He will boast about it all the time and it will make him feel extra special. 
  • A portrait with his favorite color and his name inscribed in it is a good idea. Or a bracelet with both your names engraved and a message telling him how much you love him and how special he is to you. A bracelet with his favorite childhood picture is also a wonderful idea. 
  • A photo album is another very thoughtful gift for your boyfriend. Not an old grandpa sort of album, but one that is personalized for him, neat and beautiful. Fill the album with memories of the both of you together and hand it conspicuously around the house, so you both can see it every day and be reminded of the love you both share.
  •  How about getting him something to keep his beard prim and proper? He will be all over a caste set for trimming and taking care of his beard. You can get an inexpensive six-piece beard care kit to keep his beard clean and moisturized.
  • For more off-the-cuff gifts, get him a poach of his favorite liquor or brew. You can up the ante by subscribing for the delivery of selected beer to him. It leaves him feeling extremely gratified and appreciated. He can pop a can open with his boys and savor every taste of this wonderful gift.
  • If he is a nerd, chances are his gadgets are all over the place. Why not get him an organizing case to keep all his stuff in very neatly. His plugs, chargers, USB cords, headphones, and other accessories can be neatly assembled with this, and he will always be grateful for such a functional gift. If he always loses his Airpods, it is time to get a custom case for it. It can be personalized in his favorite color so he will always remember to use it. Preferably he can attach it to a keychain, his backpack, pocket, or jacket when he is out and about. 
  • If he is the flashy type and likes jewelry, get him a neat jewelry set such as bracelets and wristwatches. It does not need to be overly covetous, something cool and trendy he can wear.
  • Does he love to cook? Get him those utensils. Guys are normally very shy about this, but nothing screams I love you more than getting him cooking utensils he would ordinarily neglect to have.  A cooking guide or paid subscription would also be a good topping for such a gift. However, if he is not the kitchen type, get him a monthly food subscription from his favorite restaurant. He will thank you for this for a very long time. 
  • If he moves around a lot, get him a duffel bag. You should take care to choose one that is easy to carry around, with lots of storage and durable straps. It will help keep him comfortable on the road and will serve as a constant reminder of you. Choose one with his favorite color, favorite team, favorite movie character, or something more personal to him. It makes the fight feel more personal and special to him. 

For a sibling or good friend

Male siblings and friends are generally appreciative of most gifts, they hardly get any anyway. 

  • A pair of noise-canceling headphones, a wallet or gamepads if they are gamers.
  • You can even try a portable campfire! Why a portable campfire? Well if he is the outgoing and adventurous type, getting a campfire will save him valuable hours setting up a fire or cleaning up after. These are the kind of things he would always cherish and showcase around his friends. You should try it out.
  • If you want to be a bit conservative while still getting something he will appreciate, you will never go wrong with sneakers, joggers, pullovers, or a backpack. Guys always buy them but they never seem to be enough and will always welcome new additions to their collection. You can make it more personal by getting one in his favorite color.


As you can see, getting something for a male lover, friend or sibling is not all that complicated. Men are simple creatures and will appreciate the tiniest gifts and presents. It does not have to be a special occasion before you show him how special he is. Getting him gifts is a constant reminder that he is loved and appreciated.
