We’re not quite sure what’s a more challenging shopping scenario: Finding a gift for a boyfriend you’ve only been dating for a few months, or finding one for your boyfriend that you’ve been with for years and whom you’ve already given a ton of great stuff. Either way, it always helps to have a little extra inspo when looking for boyfriend gifts. 

But here’s a little secret—A lot of the stuff out there that’s geared towards guys really makes a great gift for anyone. In other words, “boyfriend” gifts really can work for lots of different people on your shopping list. No matter whether they’re into food or fashion, gadgets or grooming, we found some of the best presents…that you’ll be sure to enjoy, too.

Check out the best boyfriend gifts, below.

Le Labo Santal 33 Shower Gel

4.5
Le Labo Santal 33 Shower Gel

Nordstrom

Yes, this is pricey for a shower gel, but, it makes for a luxe  gift and, it really does pull double duty as a fragrance. As far as a shower gel goes, it lathers beautifully and deposits plenty of conditioning ingredients (glycerin, aloe, vitamin E, olive oil) to leave skin nice and soft. As far as fragrance goes, it offers the classic Santal 33 blend that’s smoky, leathery, woodsy, just slightly more toned down because it’s in a body wash. It’s a gift anyone and everyone will be excited to stash in their shower.

What Our Testers Say

“I stepped out of the shower with clean, soft skin, and surrounded by a fragrance that gave the bathroom a chic, spa-like vibe. As someone who’d never naturally opt for a scented body wash, I could seriously see myself using Le Labo’s Santal 33 on the regular.”—Bryan Levandowski, Product Tester

Parachute Classic Bathrobe

5
Parachute Classic Turkish Cotton Robe

Parachute

No matter whether he’s worn the same robe for years and is due for an upgrade, or has never worn one (shocking), this makes the perfect gift. Made from 100% long-staple Turkish cotton, it’s extremely plush and cozy, so much so that it feels towel-like. (It could easily even work in place of a towel, TBH.) It comes in a variety of neutral colors, sizes ranging from XS to 3X, and has handy dandy pockets, always a win in our book.

What Our Testers Say

“The Parachute Classic Bathrobe is not the cheapest robe you’ll find. But the quality makes it worth it in my opinion, so if you’re looking for a robe that you can’t wait to slip into after every shower or bath, it’s hard to lose with this one.”—Leah Weingus, Product Tester

Dr. Barbara Sturm Face Cream for Men

4.5
Dr. Barbara Sturm Face Cream Men

Nordstrom

Byrdie editors are big fans of this skincare line, and this men’s moisturizer is no exception. While all of the brand’s formulas are unisex, this formula in particular is geared towards addressing the unique needs of skin that’s often irritated by razors. (That being said, it’s great for any type of stressed out skin.) It touts purslane, a collagen-boosting, skin-healing ingredient, along with deeply moisturizing macadamia nut oil and shea butter, plus a host of other antioxidants. A little goes a long way, and this can even be used occasionally, when skin needs a little extra TLC rather than everyday, helping you really get the most out of one bottle.

What Our Testers Say

“I  knew the product would plump my skin with its long list of soothing, repairing ingredients and that I’d wake up with a restored, glowing complexion. And I was right. That’s exactly why I deploy this product when my skin needs it. It would help if you did the same, reserving it for a post-shave application, a defense against cold + dry winter air, against hyperactive air conditioners (which can parch your skin while you sleep), as a general night cream when you need to wake up looking at your best… the use cases go on and on. I like that it also works as a proactive eye cream, ensuring that the skin around the eyes stays plump, protected, and hydrated. If you’re prone to dark circles in the morning, an application can ensure you don’t see a raccoon in your reflection.”—Adam Hurly, Product Tester

Chris Collins Renaissance Man Eau de Parfum

Chris Collins Renaissance Man Eau de Parfum

Nordstrom

This spicy gourmand fragrance combines notes of cinnamon and sage, along with fresh bergamot and ginger and earthy tonka bean and leather. The end result? An intoxicating scent that he (and you) won’t be able to get enough of.

Renpho R3 Muscle Massage Gun

Renpho R3 Muscle Massage Gun

Amazon

DIY massages have never been easier. This pick (which earned our vote as the best massage gun out there) offers five speeds, ranging from 2500 to 3200 percussive beats per minute, to help relieve even the achy-est of muscles. It also has five interchangeable heads that make it good for all parts of the body, and weighs in at just one and a half pounds. It’s nice and quiet, too.

Aloonoo 15-Piece Copper Boston Cocktail Shaker Set Bartender Kit

Aloonoo 15-Piece Cocktail Bartender Set

Amazon

Perfect for any amateur mixologist, this comes complete with everything you need to whip up delicious cocktails. There are shakers, strainers, a muddler, tongs, you name it, all housed in a stand that’s both cute and convenient. There’s even a recipe book included to help get your creative cocktail juices following.

MadeMan The Re(Set) Collection

MadeMan The Re(Set) Collection

MadeMan

This brand is all about simplifying and streamlining skincare. There are just two products in this set, a choice pick for any grooming minimalist. There’s a two-in-one shave cream and face cleanser, and a multi-tasking moisturizer, both dermatologist-formulated. In the words of Ina Garten, how easy is that?

PYNRS Men's Burrell Beanie

PYNRS Burrell Beanie

PYNRS

Made of 100% merino wool, this hat is cozy, comfortable, and warm, perfect for chilly days and nights. It’s also stretchy, conforming nicely to your head, comes in three colors, and features a tall cuff that makes it look stylish rather than basic. And while it’s intended to be a running hat, we think it’s a great all-around beanie, even if you’re not wearing it while on a run.

Fossil Inscription Three-Hand Date Amber Eco Leather Watch

Fossil Inscription Three-Hand Date Amber Eco Leather Watch

Fossil

A watch is one of those classic, can’t go wrong gifts, especially if it’s this one. The versatile design means it works equally well with sporty or more dressy looks, it’s water-resistant, and the strap is made of comfortable, never stiff eco leather. Not to mention that this rings in at a great price point, too.

MALIN+GOETZ Peppermint Shampoo

MALIN + GOETZ Peppermint Shampoo

Nordstrom

Pretty much all of the products from this brand make for choice, unisex gifts, but we’re especially partial to this shampoo. It’s super refreshing and invigorating, a major win on sleepy mornings. It also excels at breaking down any product residue from the hair, especially from thicker creams, waxes, or styling pastes.

Four Season Down & Feather Pillow

Down & Feather Pillow - Four Seasons

Four Seasons

It may not be quite as good as staying at a Four Seasons hotel, but if that’s not in the cards, sleeping on the hotel brand’s signature pillow is easily the next best thing. Made of down and feather, they truly are the most insanely comfortable pillows we’ve ever laid our head on; they also happen to be hypoallergenic. Upgrade his bedding situation with one or two of these and you’ll both be happy.

Harlem Candle Co. Ellington Nightclub Map of Harlem Candle

Ellington Candle

Harlem Candle Co.

Any jazz lover will appreciate this cool homage to Duke Ellington, complete with a vintage map of Harlem on the jar. Any candle lover will appreciate the sophisticated scent of bergamot, cinnamon, and clary sage, as well as the impressive 80-hour burn time. Plus, the outer box is pretty enough that you won’t have to wrap it.

Sheryl Lowe Mr. LOWE Brown Mixed Gemstones Bracelet with Brass Beads

Sheryl Lowe Mr. LOWE Brown Mixed Gemstones Bracelet

Sheryl Lowe

Yes, the Mr. Lowe in question is Rob Lowe—this is a standout men’s bracelet from his wife’s jewelry line. The handmade piece is made with ebony and coffee quartz, interspersed with brass beads.

Altec Lansing HydraShock Everything Proof Bluetooth Speaker

Altec Lansing HydraShock Bluetooth Speaker

Amazon

This portable speaker may be small (great for taking anywhere), but it doesn’t skimp on sound; it even has a woofer to deliver loud, clear audio. It’s waterproof, delivers up to 20 hours of playtime, and even has a built-in charging port for your phone so you never have to stress about that dying on you.

Nature Boy Deluxe Beard Kit with Connoisseurs Grooming Box

Nature Boy Deluxe Beard Kit with Connoisseurs Grooming Box

Nature Boy

It’s hard to decide what we like more about this set. Is it the collection of four beard care products, all made with natural, plant-based ingredients? Is it the fact that it comes with both a brush and a comb, in a stiffness of your choosing? Or is it the fact that the whole thing comes in a gorgeous walnut, keepsake box that makes the whole thing feel that much more special and gift-worthy? Happily, there’s no need to choose.

USAOPOLY Hues and Cues Guessing Game

USAOLOPY Hues and Cues

The OP

This board game is inspired by all of those “is the dress blue or white?” Internet controversies, playing off of the fact that we all see colors differently. You may have seen it on social media— it’s been viral on TikTok—and is a fun and new way to shake up game night.

Air & Anchor Weathered Oak Serving Board

Air & Anchor Weathered Oak Serving Board

Air & Anchor

Charcuterie, burgers, sandwiches—there’s nothing that wouldn’t look better displayed on this gorgeous serving board. Handcrafted and made from locally-sourced, repurposed oak, it also pulls double duty as a kitchen decor piece when not in use.

Public Rec Weekend Jogger

Public Rec Weekend Jogger

Public Rec

Who doesn’t want an extra pair of cute, comfy joggers? These are made from a midweight French Terry that’s great for all seasons and have a drawstring waist (hello, comfort) with cuffed hems (hello, style). They come in six neutral colors, as well as four inseams and nine waist sizes.

Levain Bakery Signature Cookie Assortment Gift Box

Levain Bakery Signature Cookie Assortment Gift Box

Levain Bakery

If you’ve never experienced a Levain cookie, do yourself a favor and order some, ASAP. Once only available at their New York City brick-and-mortar locations, the brand now ships their beloved cookies nationwide. You can get a four-, eight, or 12-pack of their original flavors: dark chocolate chip, chocolate chip walnut, oatmeal raisin, and dark chocolate peanut butter chip. Again, just don’t forget to nab a pack for yourself.

Beckett Simonon Garcia Sneaker

Beckett Simonon Garcia Sneaker

Beckett Simonon

This brand makes all of its footwear to order, helping to both reduce waste and cut back on costs. Everything is made by artisans in Colombia, including these cool kicks. Equally retro and modern, the pairing of leather and suede looks cool and sleek; choose from five different color combos.

Foreo Luna3 for Men Deep Facial Cleansing Tool

Foreo Luna3 for Men Deep Facial Cleansing Tool

Nordstrom

Marrying the worlds of grooming and tech, this face cleaning device relies on T-sonic pulses to remove 99.5% of dirt and other grime from the skin. Let’s see your standard washcloth do that. By helping to unclog pores and remove dead skin, it’s also the perfect pre-shave prep step, reducing the likelihood of ingrowns and even razor burn. And since it’s made entirely from silicone, it’s both waterproof and very easy to clean.

Mind the Cork Vegan Cork Leather Slim Cardholder

Mind the Cork Vegan Cork Leather Slim Cardholder

Mind the Cork

Whether for credit cards or business cards, a cardholder is always a practical gift. We love that these, from a BIPOC-owned, London-based brand, are handmade from vegan cork, giving them a unique look and texture. They’re incredibly affordable and come in four unique colors.

Mantl No-Shine Sheets

Mantl No-Shine Sheets

Nordstrom

Think of these as blotting sheets…but better. Founded by Queer Eye’s Karamo Brown, this brand focuses on grooming products that meet the needs of balding men. These bamboo charcoal-infused sheets are intended to help avoid shiny head syndrome, though they work equally well to absorb excess oil and tamp down unwanted sheen on your face. We also like that they’re refillable.

DripDrop ORS Hydration Electrolyte Powder Packets

DripDrop Electrolyte Powder

DripDrop

Perfect for anyone who is super active—and/or just has a hard time remembering to drink enough water every day—these electrolyte packets make it easy to stay hydrated. They contain three times more electrolytes than your run of the mill sports drink, and with three times less sugar, too. They come in easy to use single-serve packets in a variety of different fruity flavors. Can you say ‘perfect stocking stuffer?’

Kenny Flowers Nauti By Nature Terry Cloth Cabana Shorts

Kenny Flowers Nauti by Nature Terry Cloth Shorts

Kenny Flowers

Arguably some of the comfiest resortwear ever, these shorts are in fact made from a ridiculous soft, organic terry fabric; it essentially feels like you’re just wrapped up in a cozy towel. Still, the nautical-inspired stripes make them fun and fashionable, while the side and back pockets are a nice, practical touch.

BRAVO SIERRA Antibacterial Body Wipes

BRAVO SIERRA Antibacterial Body Wipes

Bravo Sierra

For anytime that a shower is hard to come by, these wipes are a lifesaver. They kill 99.99% of bacteria, but are alcohol-free (relying on benzalkonium chloride instead) and infused with aloe vera so they won’t dry out your skin. Nice and thick, they’re great for wiping down larger areas of the body, and we also appreciate that they’re made from a biodegradable material, negating the sustainability issue that many other wipes pose.

One Golden Thread Classic Crew Neck Tree Shirt

One Golden Thread Classic Crew Neck Tree Shirt

One Golden Thread

When in doubt, a nice, high-end t-shirt is always a good gift idea and this one checks all of the boxes. It’s made from a regenerative tree fiber fabric that’s both sustainable and buttery soft, and also stretches to perfectly fit your body. It can also be worn inside out, and comes in seven colors. FYI, the brand has an unheard of return policy—wear it and wash it for up to 108 days and if you don’t love it, you can still return it for a full refund.

Deeps Sleep Patch

Deeps Sleep Patch

Deeps

Anyone who has trouble falling or staying asleep will appreciate these bedtime patches. Scientist-formulated, they’re totally drug-free, instead relying on naturally-derived ingredients including melatonin, ashwagandha, and lemon balm, just to name a few, that are slowly and continuously released throughout the night. Just pop a patch on the underside of your wrist and get ready for a stellar snooze.

Buckleband Starter Set

Buckleband Starter Set

Buckleband

Resistance bands take the cake when it comes to exercise equipment that’s versatile, travel-friendly, and inexpensive. This is unlike any other we’ve seen out there; it’s the first resistance band with a buckle, making it easy to put on, adjust and take off. This set contains four, with varying levels of resistance, all made of heavy-duty silicone that won’t snap.

Material Kitchen The Knives + Stand

Material Kitchen The Knives + Stand

Material Kitchen

Oprah is just one of (many) fans of this DTC kitchenware brand whose offerings continuously sell out. Amateur and pro cooks alike will tell you how essential good knives are, and these certainly fit the bill. Made from Japanese stainless steel and high carbon, they’re perfectly sharp and incredibly durable. We also like that this features a streamlined trio of the basics: a paring knife, a serrated knife, and an eight-inch chef’s knife. The magnetic wooden stand is just the cherry on top.

Vejo Starter Kit

vejo pod

Vejo

Whipping up your morning smoothie, matcha, or protein shake has never been easier. All you have to do is pop in one of the pre-made pods—there are fruit & veggie options, coffee, and matcha drinks, protein shakes, immunity elixirs, you name it—into the portable blender and add the liquid of your choice. It’s that easy. The initial kit comes with the blender and two, four-packs of pods.

Apple AirPods Pro

Apple AirPods Pro

Amazon

So much more than just wireless headphones, we love that these have a noise cancellation feature that makes them perfect for flying, working from home, or any other situation where you want to drown out background noise. You can turn the noise cancellation on and off, however, so you can still hear your outside surroundings if you so choose. And with three sizes of silicone ear tips, it’s easy to ensure the perfect fit so that they never pop out. Make this an extra special gift by adding custom engraving to the case (it’s free!).

RUNSOON Unisex Slide Sandals

RUNSOON Unisex Slide Sandals

Amazon

These Yeezy-inspired slides epitomize the whole ‘fashion meets function’ thing. Insanely comfortable and cushiony, they’re perfect for wearing around the house, slipping on to walk the dog or take out the trash, or run errands. Still, they look super cool, way more stylish than any other slipper or house shoe.
