How to Show your Love by the Gift you Give

Women love receiving gifts from their husbands and boyfriends, because after all, getting something, you’ve been wanting for some time, is one of the most fun and exhilarating things ever. But, what about men? Do they love getting presents from their wives and girlfriends? Well, chances are, they do, as there’s no person that doesn’t appreciate gestures of love and appreciation.

Here are some gift ideas that could show your love that you love him and care about his well-being:

1. If he likes to read, buy him a book

This gift is fairly easy, especially if your guy likes to share his tastes with you. The key is not to buy him just any book, but a book that he really wants to read. So, try to check out his Goodreads account (to-be-read shelf is always a great indicator of what a person plans to read), or simply ask him, but try to be subtle about it, especially if you want it to be a surprise. Also, a book is a great gift if you’re planning to go on a vacation, as reading on the beach can be a great way to relax and get some well-deserved rest.

2. Personal Cosmetics

Men didn’t use to be into personal grooming (besides shaving and everything that goes with it), but nowadays things are slowly changing for the better. Now, that doesn’t mean that men should become obsessed with their appearance and spend hours in front of the mirror, but it’s rather about learning how to take care of themselves. Just like women, men have skin issues such as redness and acne, so in order to make them go away, they need to start taking better care of their faces. So, if your boyfriend has certain skincare issues, buying a nice face wash or a toner can greatly help him get rid of imperfections, and if his skin is fine, buying him a new brand of shaving cream or a shower gel will surely make him feel good and happy.

3. An Accessory or Two

A boy needs gadgets, but a man needs accessories. In order to look elegant, a man should be wearing a watch or anything else that adds a touch of seriousness to his appearance. In case your man doesn’t like wearing accessories, there are ways to still get him something he’ll love. As you probably know, men tend to wear most of their stuff in their pockets, including keys, a wallet, and phone. Even though that might seem practical from their perspective, in reality, that’s not a very pretty sight. But luckily, there are different types of men’s bags, so chances are, if you choose one of them, he’ll be more than happy to wear it.

Besides a bag, you can also get him a piece of jewellery but make sure that it’s something low-key, so he won’t feel uncomfortable to wear it.

4. An Elegant Watch

Technically, watches are considered accessories, but they’re a bit of a different kind of accessory, as wearing the right watch can make the man look sexier and more assertive. Now, a quality watch might be a bit expensive, but there are other, lesser-known brands that look great that are quite affordable. Besides, wearing an elegant minimalist watch with a business or evening suit can make a man look more presentable and serious. Just make sure not to buy a smartwatch that looks like a toy, instead, it’s better to opt for a classic model that seems more expensive and stylish.

5. Something Unique

As we’ve mentioned before, gifts are supposed to be the sign of love and appreciation, so if you’re not sure what to buy, you can simply make something unique like a photo album with photos of two of you or maybe buy him his favourite movie poster that he can frame and hang in his office. Unique gifts might require more effort and planning, but your partner will surely be over the moon once you give him something special that only he’ll know how to appreciate.

6. A Clothing Item

Maybe you and your boyfriend/husband already live together, and in that case, buying him a t-shirt or a jacket can be very thoughtful of you. Everyday clothes may not be the perfect romantic gift, but they are a great way to show how much you care about him. And if you feel like making things more interesting, maybe you can get him a graphic tee with a logo of his favourite band or a video game he enjoys playing.


The language of Love is different from place to place, but it always says one thing: I love you. That’s why it’s important to choose a gift that he will enjoy, and it’s always better to start looking early, so you don’t feel pressured once the date gets closer. Finally, you can always ask him to give you a hint, so you can be sure that you’re getting him something truly thoughtful and unique.
