The 8 Best Birthday Gifts For Your Boyfriend

What to get your boyfriend for his birthday
Comments (97)

If you want to make your boyfriend feel special, his birthday is the day to do it. Sure, a gifts are nice, but a gesture is something he won’t forget. Show him you put time and effort into giving him the perfect present and birthday experience. 

We’ve come up with some fun ideas to make your boyfriend’s birthday something special. It will be a day he’ll never forget, thanks to you!

Here are our 8 best birthday gifts for your boyfriend:

1. Treat him

Why not cook your fella his favourite meal? Or if you have an irrational fear of pots and pans, take him out to dinner and pick up the tab. There’s a reason they say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Choose a restaurant he’s always wanted to try, but perhaps never had the opportunity. The fact that you paid attention and remembered will make the surprise so much more special. 

2. Get crafty

Remember when a sign of true love was the gift of a mixed tape? Get with the times – make your boyfriend the 2013 equivalent with a personalized iTunes playlist, or design a customized photo album or calendar and order it online. Gifts like these show you’ve put in time and effort, which he’s bound to appreciate. For more creative birthday gift ideas, read: Creative Gifts for Your Boyfriend.

3. Plan a surprise

An oldie but a goodie, a surprise party is the perfect way to celebrate his big day. Even if it’s not a milestone birthday, treat it like one by choosing a fun theme. Is he into Star Wars or Football? The more personalized it is, the more he will appreciate the thought you put into his special day. 

4. Try something new

If he’s always talked about wanting to go white-water rafting or going to the symphony, organize it. Trying something new together is a great way to bond, and it shows that you not only listen to him, but that you show initiative and make things happen.

5. Give him a year

It’s the gift that keeps on giving: sign him up for a monthly subscription of his favourite magazine, or enrol him in a wine club that sends bottles and information throughout the year. In addition to honing his hobby, it’ll be a monthly reminder of his lovely and thoughtful girlfriend.

6. Have a lazy day

Going all-out for a birthday can be fun, but sometimes a low-key affair is more in order. Grab a few DVD sets of the show he’s been wanting to catch up on, his favourite foods, and spend your day lounging and bonding in bed together. For more unique ideas for his birthday, read: Unusual Birthday Gifts for Your Boyfriend.

7. Be sexy

Turn up the heat in the bedroom and put him in charge on his birthday night. Whether it’s new lingerie or indulging his every fantasy, trying something new and exciting will end his birthday in a way he won’t forget!

8. Get away

What better way to celebrate his big day than with a mini-break? Organize a romantic getaway for the two of you, or invite his friends and/or family to rendezvous somewhere special. You'll make incredible memories, and he'll appreciate the effort you took to plan it.

What's the best gift you've ever given your boyfriend? Or what's the most unusual thing your beau has done for you on your birthday? Leave us a comment and let us know!

Well, I got a lot of special gifts
The best one was: a poetry about love and passion, from my ex-boyfriend from a prison
The second one, was from another ex-boyfriend: A diary about all our trips around Europe, with the small pics of each place on it and some memories written. He also let some free space between each trip for me to wright. This supposed to be continued from my birthdays to his birthdays, but unfortunately we are not together anymore.
Hope you will find attractive
<3

October 10th is my boyfriend's 22nd birthday. We've been together for over year (last year I took him and his 2 best friends to Cirq du Soliel for his birthday) so I wanted to do something he would never think of himself. I booked a stock car test drive for him although it unfortunately doesn't run into October and I had to suprise him with it a few weeks before his birthday, he loved it. What guy doesn't want to drive a race car around an actual racetrack for 10 laps? You can book that through trythat.ca.
The day of his actual birthday (wednesday) I will present him with a red velvet cake birthday cake and chocolate chicken (a spicy Latin meal that is amazing and worked for me on valentines day as well).
On the Saturday following his birthday, I'm taking him and 8 of our friends paintballing. This will precede a night of partying of course.
I'm a dedicated believer in not giving gifts, but experiences. Boyfriends will get tired of toys you give them but not of memories.

Buying a hookah for the boyfriend this birthday, super classy & just the right price point. Plus its something he can buy stuff for and add onto later on to personalize exactly what he wanted.

Make him cupcakes as a part of your gift and add his favourite food colouring to the icing, a little bit of sprinkles,some nice candles to match and your all set. He'll like the thought you put into it. Oh and maybe sing him Happy Birthday all by your lonesome.

this year im taking my bf to our local photographer and we're going to get pics of us together profesionally cause we don't really have many of us together, i already told him cause we tell eachother everything and he also begged me to tell him one of his gifts but i still have a few others im working on like i learn how to crochet just to make him a blanket also im going to make his fav dinner/dessert and get him his newest fav dvd, take him on an adventure like a scavenger hunt except for sites that are really beautiful and i know he'll love.
but the best u can get ur bf is just being right there beside him on his special day! all the best to u all in finding the perfect gift.

For his his Christmas present I took my Bf paint balling ( kicked his butt xD ), then we were going to go for a walk, but ended up cuddling in the car. We went swimming after that and I wore a bikini in public for a first time for him ( at a pool that is outside of the city that we live in =). We went out for dinner, watched his cousin's basketball game together and went to his house, cuddled, watched a movie to finnish it off.

For my boyfriends birthday, I put a giant "I LOVE" in the middle of his room and blew up 19 balloons (it was his 19th) while he was out. And in each balloon there was a little hershey's kiss and a note that said what I love about him. It was really fun because he had to pop them all to get the notes. He loved it :)

Like I just commented in other post, I recommend a page when you can entrust a cd with the letter and music style you like. It was a gift for my boyfriend in the past and it's really original (mine was about a story of us) I think I would do the "lazy day" in the future. Regards!

For my boy friend's last birthday, I took him to a mini golfing place near his house and it turned out to be the dinkiest place! We had so much fun laughing at the absurd "traps," then went to get pizza (his and my favourite food) and talked as we laid in the grass of a town common. I think we scared some high school kids being old and giggling in public, but otherwise great!

My boyfriends birthday is next week, the other day he gave me his jumper & have me the cutest teddy ever. He has gave me a few gifts & now it's my turn. I really want to get him something special but every time I ask him what he wants he just says "I have everything thing that I want, I have you."... That's cute but is making things so difficult for me to get him something. Can I please have some ideas on what to get him?

Great ideas here! I recently read Five Ideas for Birthday a Sex Bonanza by Ariel Jordan.
My favorite thing from this article is this... Sexy Chef: Make your man's favorite meal for his birthday, and let him just sit back and enjoy. The special twist? Wear nothing but a pair of heels, and apron, and some sexy panties. Even if you're a crummy cook, chances are he won't notice (if you even make it to the dinner table, that is).

dont take him to get pictures of the 2 of you it will just seem like a hassle to him unless you can make it really playful

My boyfriend's birthday is on the 18th. I remember when we first started dating he mentioned that he hadn't had a really good professional massage since he was overseas in the Army, so I set up a two hour deep tissue massage for him. I'm also going to buy his favorite whiskey; Johnnie Walkers Blue Label. I might bake his favorite cake, but we both know I can't cook to save my life.
