1. Leather Wallet

Every guy needs a wallet, right? While your boyfriend probably already has one, it definitely isn’t a bad idea to get him a new one. Usually, guys use the same wallet until it’s falling to pieces so a new one is probably much needed. 

If your man is in need of a new wallet, Fossil and Coach have the highest quality wallets to buy in 2021. Fossil gives you the option to emboss initials into the wallet at no extra charge which is perfect if you are looking to buy your boyfriend a personalized gift! The Coach wallet set comes with a larger and smaller wallet as well as a leather keychain so this set would make an amazing gift as well. 

2. Lululemon Shorts

When looking for a full-proof Christmas gift for your boyfriend, you can never go wrong with clothing from Lululemon. While Lulu is a little more pricey, the quality is there so it totally lives up to the price. These shorts are the comfiest and most popular pair of shorts for men so you can guarantee he will be insanely excited to open these up on Christmas.

3. Trendy Sports Apparel

Pretty much every boyfriend is into sports so you can’t go wrong with buying him new sports apparel from his favorite team! The company ‘47 Brand has a TON of trendy sports apparel from every team you could think of. This is a great gift alternative to normal jerseys if he has a ton of those already.

If you’re looking for Christmas gifts for boyfriend 2021 then you have probably already thought of buying Yeti products. But, in case you haven’t here is your reminder! All Yeti products are boyfriend approved and they seriously can’t get enough. From tumblers to beer coolers they have everything a guy could need to keep his refreshments nice and cold.

5. Ugg Slippers

During Christmas, my friends and I usually budget around $100 total to spend on our boyfriends. Ugg slippers are the perfect gift because they fall under that budget! Giving this gift to your boyfriend is the perfect way to stick to a reasonable budget but still giving them something that feels expensive.

6. Bluetooth Speaker

Now, this is one good-looking Bluetooth speaker! Everyone needs a good Bluetooth speaker in their life but some of them are just eyesores when left out in my opinion. While I will admit this speaker is pricey, it produces amazing quality sound and serves as stylish decor so the quality lives up to the high price.

If you want to buy him a Bluetooth speaker but are on a budget you can always opt for a smaller speak like this one from Amazon that still looks stylish!

7. "Manscaped" Grooming Kit

Let’s be honest, every guy needs a little maintenance “down there”. One of my close friends gave this to her boyfriend last year somewhat as a joke but he actually ended up loving it and using it all the time.

The Manscaping set comes with high-quality razors perfect for sensitive skin as well as lotions and even deodorant! This is the perfect gift for guys who like taking care of themselves that I’m sure every girlfriend can get behind as well.

8. Dopp Kit

Did anyone else think “Dopp” kits were spelled “Doc” kits? No? Just me? Okay...

Anyways, a DOPP kit is always a Christmas gift for boyfriends that they will actually use. Calpak, Etsy, Amazon, and other baggage stores sell endless options of leather, cloth, and even personalized Dopp kits that are super high quality. This is a gift you can guarantee he will get lots of use out of.

9. Barbour Jacket

A Barbour jacket is a gift I actually hadn’t even thought of until I asked my boyfriend to think of some gift ideas. But, now that I think about it every single guy I know loves these jackets (at least where I’m from) so if you live somewhere that gets cold this is the gift to buy for him! So here it is, a boyfriend-approved (and suggested) Christmas gift for boyfriend 2021. These jackets are super versatile and can be worn against harsh weather outdoors but function just as well as city wear.

10. Keychain

Sentimental gifts are sometimes the best way to go when buying gifts for your boyfriend. But when you look up “sentimental gifts for boyfriend” some of them are SO cheesy. Here is a customized sentimental gift to give your boyfriend that he won’t secretly be embarrassed to use. 

This leather keychain comes personalized with his initials as well as a photo of your choice inside so he has a sweet reminder of the two of you without having to flash “I have a girlfriend” around at all times.

11. Hoodies

You know all the hoodies of his you wore and “promised to give back”? Here is your chance to repay him for those. Hoodies are a clothing essential for guys and they seriously can’t have enough. H&M, Zara, Nike, and Adidas all carry basic hoodies that will match any outfit. In general, you can’t go wrong with buying your boyfriend a good Nike hoodie for Christmas. Or, you could just give him the gift of returning all the ones you stole.

12. Personalized Golf Balls

useful gifts for boyfriend

If your boyfriend is as much of a golf lover as mine then this is a Christmas gift you should definitely consider buying. This set comes in a customized box that includes personalized golf balls, tees, and pencils. He might even love this gift so much he won’t even want to use it. But, you can guarantee he will be showing it off to all his friends or displaying them in his room.

It is 2021 so headphones with wires are out and AirPods are all the rage. If he doesn’t have them already, this is a great gift for any boyfriend that you can guarantee he will be using all the time.

If your boyfriend isn’t the materialistic type gifting him an experience rather than an item is the way to go! This could mean planning a fancy dinner or booking a couples massage!
