The love month is calling and it’s the perfect time to express your love to your boyfriend. However, expressions can get quite overwhelming. To simplify them, here are some Valentine’s day gift ideas for your boyfriend.

Don’t worry, not everything on this list will pierce your savings account. If you are a ladyboy who’s not making a lot but want to impress your boyfriend, keep reading.

What Type of Guy is Your Boyfriend?

The quickest way to determine the perfect gift for your boyfriend is from his type. Men have different types of personalities. If you have been dating him for quite some time, you already have an idea of what he’s like. Please know that this part is vital so you must focus on this one.

Artistic Lad

Does your boyfriend’s work involve a lot of arts? Are his hobbies comprised of painting, drawing, playing instruments, etc. If so, you’re going to have an easier time finding a gift for him. Some good ideas are a canvas, brush, oil paint, sketchpads, guitar pick, etc.

Social Media Influencer

If your boyfriend is a brand ambassador or a social media influencer, anything that can help him have better quality videos, photos, audio, or content is a great idea. You can buy him a camera lens, an extra mic, or a social media marketing course online.

This type of gift may not be very traditionally romantic, but these will constantly remind him of your love. Furthermore, you’re ensured that he’s going to like it.

Entrepreneur

Businessmen care a lot about their image. How they dress up and look reflect their brand. Furthermore, they rub elbows with many people from high society and it’s vital for them to blend in.

It may be intimidating to give someone like him a gift because you think that it will be hard to please him. However, on the contrary, they are already overexposed to the finer things in life that they know that the best things in life are free.

The bottom line is, you don’t have to impress him. All you have to do is to make him happy. He already knows how to dress up so anything that you can afford that’s meaningful will be greatly appreciated by him. You can try baking him cookies or cupcakes.

Tech Guy

Most tech guys are homebodies. They are not big on attending social events or crowded places. These people can find happiness by fiddling with their gizmos and gadgets. If you are planning on giving something to your boyfriend this Valentine’s day, it must be something that he will use a lot at home.

Some good examples are light-up mousepad, wifi extender, or computer speakers. If you don’t have a high budget, a big customized mug with a caricature of him will work as well.

Sporty Gentleman

Many guys enjoy athletic activities. Some of them do these for leisure and some for professional reasons. Give him gears that would be purposeful for his sport of choice. Shuttlecocks, tennis balls, knee pads, etc. are all very good examples.

Gift Ideas For Long-distance Relationships

Sadly, not all couples have the luxury to live together. Most men who have ladyboy girlfriends start their relationships with LDR. If your boyfriend leaves oceans away from you, there are still ways to give him a gift.

Meaningful Jewelry

Most men only wear watches. Not a lot of them are into wearing necklaces and bracelets. However, if you give him meaningful jewelry, he will appreciate it. There are pieces of jewelry available online that have symbols and meanings. Some of it is even blessed and may serve as protection and guidance for the wearer.

The best piece that he would likely wear would be a bracelet. Look for something that’s fully-charged with affirmations. Don’t give him a ring because this might make him think that you’re proposing or you’re obsessed with him.

Collection Addition

Plenty of guys who are in their 30s and 40s collect action figures. This is because they grew up in the gaming console, comics, cartoons, and anime era. Some of them are music lovers and are more into collecting vinyl, CD, and cassette tape. Others are movie buffs and have stacks of DVDs and Bluray discs on their shelves.

What would surely make him happy is an extra special addition to his collection from you. Remember not to take your gift out of the box because it will lose half of its value.

Virtual Gift Cards

You may find this to not be thoughtful but most men won’t find an issue with this. However, you must find the perfect gift card that matches his desires. If he’s a gamer, you can get him something from Steam, Google Play, or Apple Store.

If he is more into physical products, why not give him something from Amazon, Etsy, or eBay. Should he like e-books, head on to Kindle. The world is your oyster when it comes to gift cards.

Gift Ideas If You Are Living With Him

If you are fortunate to have your beau with you in this time of the pandemic, finding a gift is easier.

Cigars or Liquor

Some men are classic and still enjoy cigars and liquor. Many specialty shops sell high-quality tobacco. If he’s more into collecting wine, buying something that was made during his birth year is also quite romantic.

Car Accessories

Men love their cars. If you will buy something to pimp their car out, they will think that you’re the coolest girlfriend in the world. Just remember that you must buy something that aligns more with his taste rather than yours. Don’t buy him pink rims or rainbow-colored seat cushions.

Wallet

A lot of men don’t like carrying bags and most of them carry wallets instead. Many genuine leather wallets don’t cost a fortune. Look up local designers that sell high-quality leather goods for affordable prices.

This Valentine’s day, you must remember that the goal is to express your feelings. You don’t have to buy the most expensive thing in a shop just to prove your emotions to him. Just by giving something that you know he likes already says how much you care and love him.
