Giving your special guy a romantic gift for his birthday or just because, shouldn't be a difficult tasks to do. If you know your boyfriend that well, you'll definitely have an idea of the things he loves to have or keep. Think of his favorite food and wine, his hobby, his favorite color, so on and so forth. The idea is to get him a romantic gift that will complement his preferences.
Another important thing to remember is that when giving gifts to your guy, it should also have a practical use. Guys don't usually like little teddy bears, pink stuff or furry things. They rather receive six cans of beer and they'll be thankful for that. So think wisely and buy him something that is useful and practical.
Here are 5 romantic, yet practical gifts that your guy may like:
Buying apparel for your guy is as practical as it can get. If he's a corporate guy, you may want to buy him a formal shirt that he can wear at work. But if he's an IT guy, you can get him something a bit casual yet presentable for the office. You don't have to spend too much for menswear, so a maximum of $100 will do.
2. Grooming kits
Nowadays, guys are beginning to embrace the importance of good grooming and how to apply it on a daily basis. The fact that most men love to look and feel good are evident because you can see them take their time in choosing good products.
If you want to give your guy grooming products, make sure it is a complete set- shaving cream, shampoo and conditioner, body wash or soap, deodorant, shaver, moisturizer and hair grooming products. And don't forget a pouch that can keep all of those items.
3. Gift baskets
Gift baskets are safe bets especially if you don't know what to buy for your guy. If he loves a special brand of red wine, toss it in with a couple of crackers and spreads, chips and dips, and chocolates. If he loves fruits and champagne, then fruits and champagne gift basket it is.
Gourmet food has also made it into gift baskets; so does Italian cured meats and cheeses. Whatever it is that he loves to eat and drink, put them in a basket and seal it with love.
4. Mini MP3 player
You might think that this is not a romantic gift. Guess again. You can get a mini MP3 for less than $150 and you can download his favorite music in it to make him remember that it was your idea. May it be rock, reggae, R & B, metal or instrumentals, music will always be a romantic gift to your loved one.
5. Home-cooked dinner by candlelight
Now who's going to beat this idea? If you're stuck on what to give to your guy, don't fret. Cook a few main courses of spaghetti with meatballs, roast chicken and veggies while he's still at work. And don't forget the wine and store-bought chocolate cake for dessert. When he comes home, he'll smell everything from down the hallway of his apartment. Make it a surprise. Ask for his apartment key and tell him you'll watch TV with him.
Showing your guy that you love him doesn't always need words and huge bucks. You can always be creative without busting your wallet. And at the end of the day, he'll thank you for the thought and will love you more.
