Fun Gift Ideas for Boyfriends, Husbands, Brothers and Sons

Looking for a fun gift idea for the special man in your life? Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, holiday or just because, finding the perfect present can be tricky. But with a little thought and creativity, you can come up with something he’ll really enjoy. Here are some fun and unique gift ideas to spark inspiration:

Experience Gifts

Instead of regular material gifts, gift an experience. Experiential gifts create wonderful memories and quality time spent together. Some ideas:

Tickets to a concert, play, sporting event or comedy show he’d enjoy. Include a little surprise like backstage passes or VIP tickets.
Plan a special day trip or weekend getaway just for the two of you. Think romantic bed and breakfast, wine tasting tours, hiking adventure or whatever aligns with his interests.
For the thrill seeker – book a tandem skydiving jump, race car driving experience or hot air ballooning ride.
Arrange a guided fishing charter, golf lessons from a pro, surfing/paddleboard lessons or other activity lessons.
Gift certificates for unique local experiences like escape rooms, virtual reality gaming, indoor skydiving or axe throwing.

Gifts for His Hobbies

Cater to his hobbies and interests with a gift that helps him pursue his passions:

Sports fan? Get tickets to see his favorite team or a jersey/hat for his beloved player.
Music lover? Surprise him with vinyl records, a guitar effects pedal, band t-shirt or tickets to a music festival.
Movie buff? Gift cards for streaming services, a fancy popcorn maker or tickets to opening night of a blockbuster he’s excited about.
Gamer? Upgrade his gaming gear with a new controller, gaming headset or the latest video game release.
Car or bike enthusiast? Help feed his need for speed with racing experiences, tools, equipment, custom accessories or maintenance services.
Outdoor adventurer? Gift a GoPro camera, hiking/camping gear, trendy outdoor apparel or national park pass.

Tech & Gadgets

The tech-obsessed guy will appreciate functional and fun gadgets:

Smart home devices like Amazon Echo, Google Nest or smart lightbulbs he can control from his phone.
Drone with built-in camera for spectacular aerial footage and photography.
Go retro with a Polaroid camera for instant snapshots.
Wireless headphones/earbuds with active noise cancellation for quality sound.
Smart watch with fitness tracking to help him achieve health goals.
Portable phone charger for juicing up on the go.
Streaming stick like Roku or Chromecast so he can binge movies and shows.
Bluetooth tracker like Tile Mate to keep tabs on his keys and other belongings.
Tech accessories like an external hard drive, gaming mouse or VR headset.

Unique & Personalized Gifts

Sometimes the most special gifts are personalized or custom-made just for him:

Sentimental photo book, calendar or canvas print featuring favorite memories and pictures of family/friends.
Personalized beer mugs, whiskey glasses or decanters engraved with his name or initials.
Custom bobblehead that looks just like him.
Spotify playlist of “songs that remind me of you.” Include sweet notes about each song selection.
Framed love letter or reasons why you love him. Extra points for handwriting!
DIY coupon book with sweet or silly coupons he can redeem like “Good for one free back rub” and “Recreate our first date night.”
Tracking bracelet with both your coordinates engraved. So he can be connected to you wherever he goes.
