Gifts for the New Year
The choice of New Year’s gifts for a young man often becomes an unbearable burden for many girls. It is worth considering how to make the gift seem interesting, beautiful and appropriate at the same time. In this article, will tell you about the most interesting gift ideas for a guy for the New Year, as ll as give advice on choosing them.
There is no optimal gift that every guy would be happy with — this is worth understanding at the very beginning. Each gift should be treated individually, trying to put yourself in the place of your young man. It is worth considering a list of recommended gifts depending on your boyfriend’s hobbies.
It is sometimes difficult for an athlete guy to choose the right gift, because if he has been doing something for a long time and seriously, most likely he has already acquired everything he needs. Your task is to stealthily find out what exactly of the accessories he needs most of all now. As a rule, real professionals often dream about such things out loud. Let’s take a closer look at the best gift options that you can give a sports guy.
- If the guy is a cyclist, then functional bike tracker or speedometer to measure current speed and outside temperature. A beautiful and unusual water bottle, a porful flashlight for night rides, a bike care kit, or good glare-suppressing glasses can be a good gift.
If are talking about a young person who is engaged in cycling professionally, then you can take care of buying a set to protect the body from injuries: helmets and knee pads.
- If a guy is involved in sports related to regular jogging, he may need high quality breathable thermal underar. For regular runs in the winter, he will definitely need a special headgear or mask, comfortable and warm gloves for running, and wristlets.
It is not recommended to buy separate items of clothing or shoes for jogging, guys prefer to choose such things on their own.
- For a guy who loves strength exercises, various dumbbells, pancakes, sports bags, special gloves. Here they can look good. sports nutrition preparationsfor example, a good and expensive protein.
- A universal option for every athlete guy will be convenient and functional fitness tracker, which can track the current heart rate, pressure and steps taken during the day.
If the guy is not involved in any of the above sports, you should go to a sports store and consult with a sales assistant, which sports equipment may suit your young man. Try to describe in detail to the seller your boyfriend’s sports preferences. A gift for a sporty young man does not have to be material in nature. The following gifts may be considered:
- if he dreams of getting to a future tournament or match of his favorite team, make him happy by buying tickets to good places;
- maybe your friend has repeatedly expressed his desire to sign up for training at the gym, in which case buy a subscription;
- any experienced athlete understands the benefits of regular massage, so buying a subscription to a sports massage course somewhere close to home is a good option.
Important! If you choose just such a gift, try not to be forced for the young man. For example, he does not have time to go to the same hall right now because of difficulties at work, at the same time, the subscription hours will gradually burn out, which can cause negativity and dissatisfaction.
Hunters and fishermen
Choosing a gift for a young man or a man who is seriously engaged in fishing or hunting is a rather complicated process. Often, girls have little idea of the features of a particular male hobby, and therefore refuse such gifts in favor of the ll-known classics in the form of underpants and cologne.
Hover, let’s still figure out what can be really useful for such guys. We will immediately try to discard those things and accessories that are of a general universal nature for outdoor recreation. They will be considered in the list of gifts for guys who are passionate about travel.
You should immediately refuse to buy decorative elements, one way or another depicting the husband’s hobbies. This includes various coasters in the form of some kind of fish, models and stuffed pike and other large dollars. For a guy who spends most of his free time away from home, this will be a completely useless gift.
The list of gifts for a young man who is keen on fishing is quite large. These are all kinds of fishing rods, spinning rods, nets, waders, reels, fishing lines, wobblers and spinners, universal fishing sets with a huge number of tools for every occasion.
All these things can be quite expensive, but the date of the New Year is significant in itself, so you should not spare money.
The subtlety of the selection is to buy something really necessary. It is worth asking him in advance what type of fishing he is fond of, what tools he currently lacks. Otherwise, it may turn out that he likes to catch predatory fish with the help of spinning, and you will buy him an item or accessory for fly fishing.
Do not forget that you can always contact sellers and consultants in stores for recommendations.
Guys who are keen on hunting are in dire need of elements of warm clothing and devices for orienting themselves on the ground. Camouflage suits, navigators, cases and gun cleaning kits, special rocket launchers are ideal here. Various sets for the traveler will look great here, which will be discussed a little later.
To understand what kind of belonging a young man needs right now, try to ask him about his hobby. Listen more often to what the guy says after the hunting or fishing itself. As a rule, the problematic moments of an acute lack of something immediately pop up. Maybe he lost a lure that was dear to him, a knife, or broke a reel.
Because of its acute significance, such a gift will be even more pleasant.
A car is a complex organism with a million individual elements, so choosing a gift for a guy who is fond of cars and everything connected with it is quite simple. As a rule, the machine constantly needs some kind of maintenance and replacement of certain accessories, for which any person may not always have the means.
Try to ask the guy how he is doing with the car, whether everything is working properly, maybe there are some problems. This will most likely bring you closer, and in addition, you will also learn about problematic and missing parts in the car — men talk about this especially persistently and often.
- modern car — a mechanism that mostly works on electronic devices and commands, so at the very beginning it is worth considering the purchase of various electronic accessories that can make life easier for any motorist — these are navigators, DVRs, radio tape recorders. The purchase of such gifts should be treated with extreme caution.
They cost a lot and there is a great chance to buy a low-quality device in the absence of a minimum experience.
- Semi-decorative home furnishings is your next step towards choosing a gift. These include seat covers, foot mats, heated covers, auto massagers, relaxers, car cushions. This also includes small interior items such as cleaning products, shading nets, thermal mugs. It is better to give small things in a set, since individually they do not look solid, every motorist can buy them at any time.
- Purely decorative elements — a case for documents, toys in the car interior, flavors.
- You can make your boyfriend happy subscription or session for cleaning and washing the caror buy him a card with a good discount at his favorite car shop.
- A regular car kit would also be a good option. It will come in handy for any car enthusiast who is going to travel long distances.
Important! Some interior items, including digital elements, may not fit your boyfriend’s car, so before buying, find out the make of his car from the guy and feel free to go to the car dealership with this information.
Young people are considered intellectuals, who prefer to spend most of their time reading books or studying some new hypotheses, theories, versions.
Let’s look at what gifts are best for such guys.
- As trite as it may sound, a book is often the best gift for such a person. This, of course, is not just about a book, but about a part of some collector’s edition, about a rare printed copy of your young man’s favorite poet or writer. Or it could just be an expensive book with lots of useful articles, equations, or theorems on a particular topic.
- If not a printed book, then an electronic one. This option is better because at the same time you can carry with you not 5 or 7 books, but only one plate ighing half a kilo, while with the actual content of the whole library. These books are inexpensive, easy to manage. You can find them in any gadget store.
- The gift may be intangible. You can buy your boyfriend a ticket to a lecture by a famous scientist or linguist that your boyfriend has long been interested in. Alternatively, you can buy him a six-month subscription to an online library with a large selection of books and high-quality translations.
- To make the gift from the heart, you can make your own cover for your loved one’s favorite book. This will surely make him happy.
Here, the choice of gift very much depends on your boyfriend’s current hobby. Depending on his interests, the following list of gifts may change and be adjusted. Remember only one thing — such people do not tolerate one-sided, banal and mediocre gifts. Of course, they will not show that they are upset, but, most likely, they will remain internally dissatisfied that their rich inner world was left without attention.
- The very first thing that comes to your mind is ticket or invitation to a concert of your favorite singer, band, composer.
Such a gift will be of great value if your boyfriend has been dreaming about this concert for a very long time.
- If your boyfriend’s hobbies are related to the visual, vocal or rhetorical arts, then it would be useful to acquire a subscription to master classes with some ll-known authority in the industry.
- Things that are directly related to the work of a young man. For an artist, this can be a set of high-quality brushes, paints, canvases, perhaps an easel. For the vocalist — elements of clothing, cufflinks, an interesting tie, an unusual belt. For a musician, it can be various devices, for example, a new guitar. For a guy who is actively involved in dancing, you can buy some funny figurine in the form of a dancing person. To this it would be useful to add a name inscription with the name of your boyfriend.
It is problematic to give a gift to a young man who is seriously interested in computers and gadgets. In order for the gift to be useful and appropriate, it is advisable to understand at least a little about it yourself. In any case, digital gifts always remain relevant, so below is your list of items that your gadget-loving boyfriend should like one way or another.
- Fashionable and gaining popularity gadgets are now considered bluetooth headphones. These are headphones that do not need a special wire to connect to the phone. They can be controlled remotely within 10–12 meters, depending on the model. Imagine that you nt to the kitchen with headphones on to cook something, but there was nowhere to put your phone.
With bluetooth headphones, you just leave the phone in the room and the signal, including music, will not be lost if you leave the headphones in another room.
- Selfie stick, as ll as a selfie button with bluetooth for a complete set. The first allows you to place the phone at the right distance from your face to find a better angle, and the second — not to reach for the phone to take a picture.
- Case for phone can be a good help in relation to all gifts, if made in some unusual and unique design
- Por bank - an indispensable thing for those who like to sit on the phone for a long time. It allows you to connect your phone to a storage device that, depending on the amount of battery, can fully charge your smartphone several times.
- Memory card or flash card. To make the gift seem solid, you should choose a card with a memory capacity of at least 16 or 32 gigabytes.
- If you can afford a purchase more expensive than 10 dollars, you should think about a gift as SSD drive, new processor, motherboard or RAM for computer. These gifts are worth buying only if your young man has repeatedly spoken about their need.
To buy such expensive things, you should contact a specialist or be savvy in the topic of computers yourself.
- For a novice blogger or streamer, almost the best gift would be a special computer chair or headphones with a good microphone and sound.
- For an avid gamer, a cool gift will be keyboard, mouse (possibly wireless) and backlit system unit case.
- Gadgets — these are not only computers and phones, but also cameras. For a guy who is actively involved in photography, a large external drive, a por bank for quickly charging the camera, a high-quality tripod with stable and long legs, and a camera holder are suitable. If you yourself understand the topic of photography and are ready to spend more than 60 $, you can think about buying a flash for your camera.
A gift for a traveler guy should be not so much unique as incredibly practical and useful. Immediately refuse gifts in the form of decorative items for the home. People who love nature and are not able to sit still will immediately completely forget about such a present and go planning a trip somewhere new to an unexplored place. Below you can find a sample list of things that may be relevant in this case.
- It is worth starting by looking at electronic and digital gadgets. They replace most of the standard accessories for every traveler. These are a GPS navigator with a map database, a digital compass, a fitness watch for tracking the number of steps and ambient temperature, a porful flashlight with replaceable batteries, and a gas burner for cooking.
So that on the road, especially if you travel alone, it is not boring, you can buy him a good portable radio station. Most likely, the guy will be happy with any of these gifts.
- Try to find out from the guy what set of tools he uses on his hikes and travels.. Then you can conclude what exactly he may need. It can be a voluminous thermos with high-quality heat retention, a universal set of tourist utensils, a multitool or a multifunctional knife, a beautiful and comfortable flask, a lighter with a cool and unusual design, a warm and comfortable folding chair.
- Devices and sets of devices for cooking: barbecue, barbecue.
- clothing - not the last item on this list. This includes sets of thermal underar, sleeping bags, warm socks, functional mittens with the ability to open only fingers, a warm hat.
- It is not necessary to give something material for guys who love to travel. If it’s your favorite young man or longtime friend, consider buying a tour to some places with mountains, trails and rivers. Your boyfriend will most likely be fascinated by such a gift.
- A good option may be a standard kit for survival in the wild. It usually includes: a knife, a flask, carbines, a lighter, first aid items.
There are guys for whom the main goal of life is to serve their country and protect it from internal and external threats. Such young people are hardened by the army, so the list of successful gifts for them will include only the most useful and practical things.
- clothing. Since the uniform of any military man has a strictly defined look that cannot be changed much, all you can give in this case is a good army belt, themed cufflinks or nice, warm and comfortable boots.
- decorative things, which a real military man could appreciate, not so much. Often these are some kind of souvenirs, figurines, paintings, watches or cases with a military theme.
- practical thingswhich you can’t do without on campaigns: an army set, a multitool, a thermos, a thermal mug with a military print, an army flask.
If you’re going to be celebrating New Year’s with your boyfriend and his military friends, it might make sense to host a pinball or laser tag session. This will simultaneously give the situation a comic form and amuse all participants.

How to choose?
As you can see from the article, there are many gift options. But how in this set to choose exactly the gift that will be the best. Below is an instruction for a more accurate approach to choosing a gift for your boyfriend, your boyfriend or fiance.
- Some guys can openly hint at what exactly they need, so it’s enough to simply listen to their desires and current interests more often. If this does not help, then it is worth asking your boyfriend’s friends and family for help, they will give you some ideas for buying.
- First, make a list of your boyfriend’s hobbies and interests. Try to isolate the most and least authoritative interests from this list. Then work with those that seem more significant to you.
- After choosing a hobby or occupation that you consider your boyfriend’s main thing, just find out more about it. Read articles on this topic, browse forums, look at sites selling things on this topic. You will find many interesting options.
- To make the choice easier, reduce the list of potential gifts to 2–3 items.
The further choice of a gift will depend on the following items:
- your financial capacity;
- the appropriateness of the gift in relation to the New Year;
- the practical significance of individual gifts.
Based on this little test, you can choose the perfect gift option. If you are completely limited in finances, but still want to please your young man, you can buy him purely symbolic New Year’s mittens or a hat. Such a gift looks budget, but very cute.
To choose a gift for an unfamiliar guy, you should refuse global and expensive gifts: immediately cross out digital devices, subscriptions for joint sessions somewhere, complex sets of hobbies from your list. The biggest mistake at this stage is to give a completely unnecessary gift. In this case, the gift should be more symbolic than practical or useful.
You still do not know the person ll enough to give him some local things according to his hobbies.
If you have serious plans for this guy, then the best gift would be something made by yourself. This will show the young man that you sympathize with him and are ready to spend not money on him, but your personal time.
A real gentleman will appreciate such a gift, because giving something that is not necessary, but made with your own hands is much better than giving something absolutely useless and bought somewhere on the market for a few dollars. For an acquaintance or friend with whom you rarely communicate, but maintain a relationship, a gift can be a pure formality. Here, hackneyed, but practical and useful items are ideal, for example, a set for shaving or hair care, the same toilet water or key rings, mugs, scarves.
This is how you show a person that you care about him, but you are not yet ready to unleash a closer friendship or romantic relationship.
Choosing a gift for an ordinary friend with whom you have known for a long time and often spend time together watching a movie or just having a cup of tea or evening walks is a simple task. As a rule, know our real friends best of all, so are always aware of what they want.
There are cases when, after the end of a relationship, communication in a couple does not stop and develops into something that can be called friendship. The choice of a gift for an ex-boyfriend depends only on what level you attribute this person to — to the level of a friend or acquaintance. Depending on your ansr to this question, the price characteristics of the gift and the thoroughness of its selection, of course, will change.
How to apply?
The design of the future gift depends on what kind of effect you want to have on your young man.
Below is a list of possible gift wrapping options.
- The simplest yet elegant way to wrap a gift is buy a beautiful gift box that fits the size of the present, place the present inside, carefully wrap the box in a gift box, use a decorative ribbon to form a bow of beautiful ribbons at the top of the gift. You can order the packaging at any gift shop, you can even get it for free if the gift was bought there. You can add a postcard with the most important words to the big picture.
- To make the gift perceived as a kind of surprise, it is worth making a box in the form of a nesting doll. So that the gift itself is in the smallest of the packages. This option is only suitable for small gifts.
- Gift inside sets. In this case, you place the main present inside something larger, but less significant (most often a cake). As a result, when the guy gets to the middle, you will get round eyes and a lot of pleasure from a lucky surprise.
- Mystery gift. In this case, the design of the gift is not particularly important, what is important here is the execution and idea. All that is required of you is to come up with a line of riddles and clues that your boyfriend could use to find a gift on his own in some closed room or apartment. This will only spur interest in the search and increase the intensity of passions.
- To make the gift as unexpected as possible, you can surprise your boyfriend. Just say that you will be late at work or that you are stuck in traffic. He will come home upset, and there you are already waiting for him with a gift, a set table and hugs.
What is not worth giving?
Finally, let’s deal with the list of things that you should give only as a last resort. To better understand this problem, try to put yourself in the place of this young man and imagine what you least wanted to see. Most likely, this list will immediately include all kinds of shor accessories and household dust collectors, which, in fact, have no practical value.
Let’s take a closer look at those gifts that will give the guy the least pleasure.
- Immediately cross off your list of gifts linen and items of clothing, such as socks, shorts or pajamas, trols. This is a standard time-worn gift that causes nothing but disappointment and embarrassment. Gifts of this kind may be appropriate only if they are humorous and unusual — for example, socks with a unique print or a set of panties with a funny pattern. The main thing is that such a gift seems appropriate for the guy himself.
- Appearance accessories: all kinds of sets of shaving accessories, sprays, gels, foams, styling. This is not to say that such a gift will not be pleasant to any guy. But he can buy all this on his own, and it also has nothing to do with the New Year.
- Small and medium decorative items such as figurines, piggy banks, figurines, table clocks or paintings. All this is perceived by an ordinary guy as the most ordinary dust collector, which he will forget about in a few days. A gift of this type will be successful only if it is directly related to the activity of a young person. For example, if he collects certain figurines from books or games, and you give him the missing one. Rest assured, the success of such a gift is guaranteed.
- The next common “scourge” of gifts - soft decorative items and toys. This includes pillows, soft play items, bedding like blankets and bedspreads. All this also has no practical significance, so it will be safely forgotten in a ek.
- It is better not to give eau de toilette as a gift, even if it is very expensive. The problem is that your tastes in perfumery can vary greatly.
- cash gift — a controversial present that not all girls are ready to offer guys. Such a gift looks appropriate only if you are the sister of a young man or have known him for a long time to understand what exactly he needs money now. If your acquaintance with a guy is only growing, then such a gift may simply not be accepted, as it looks dismissive and will confuse any decent young man.
- You should not give anything related to the coming year. It is impossible to imagine a gift more useless for an ordinary guy. After all, the same mug, T‑shirt or figurine depicting the symbol of the next year will be irrelevant very soon. Such gifts are suitable only as a joke and a joke.
- Do not give too expensive gifts (unless you are in a long-term relationship). In this case, there is a great chance to simply embarrass the young man. In the same way, you consciously raise the bar for the value of the gift that he should give you at the next opportunity. And if your New Year’s gifts differ too much in value, an awkward situation may arise.
