Top 25 Best New Year Gift Ideas for Your Ex
1. Mug with the symbol of the year
A good option if you want to give a modest, non-binding present. Perhaps, drinking from a cup, the guy will remember you with warmth. You can pick up a glass with a symbolic inscription for the two of you.
If you know what perfume your ex likes, gift it. You can also buy a smell that is unusual for a guy, but you should be careful here: not everyone will like something new. Be careful, because perfume is a rather intimate gift. You can buy what you like, but for the former, the smell will be unpleasant. Therefore, it is better to choose such a present knowing exactly the preferences of the young man.
3. Warm scarf
Such a gift will warm you in severe winter frosts and show your care. It can have symbolic embroidery or interesting knitting. Consider what colors the guy likes and prefers in the wardrobe. A business person, for example, is unlikely to fit a red scarf with deer.
Was your ex always late for appointments? Give him a diary where he can record important events. Such a gift is also suitable for a businessman guy, because he will be able to plan his affairs, while remembering you with gratitude.
5. Antistress toy
There are many stressful situations in the modern world. Such a present will help to throw out emotions and stay in a good mood. A variety of shapes and sizes will allow you to choose what suits this particular person.
6. Smartphone case
If the ex-lover does not let go of the phone, give him a beautiful case with a New Year’s print. It will help keep your gadget safe longer. If the former constantly broke the device, get a shocweroof pad. He will certainly appreciate the present, which allows him to avoid unnecessary repairs.
Do you think that facial hair does not suit an ex-boyfriend at all, but do not dare to say so? Give him an electric razor. Now you can choose any model: with nozzles and without, pored by mains or batteries. In addition, thanks to an electric shaver, a man will avoid cuts and save time on shaving.
It has always been considered the best gift. But keep in mind: if the guy is not a big fan of reading, he is unlikely to like such a present. It is also worth choosing the right genre. A neutral, but a good option would be an adventure novel. And if you know that the former is a fan of fantasy or science fiction, give a book of this genre.
1. Piggy bank
The ex-husband does not know how to manage money at all, and maybe this problem caused your separation? Give him a nice piggy bank. Perhaps it will help you to approach the financial issue more competently. In honor of the New Year, you can buy a piggy bank in the form of an animal symbolizing it.
A stylish accessory that should be in every man’s wardrobe. For a business person, choose neutral colors: black or brown. A lover of extravagant style will like bright belts, the choice of which is huge. Keep in mind that giving a yellow accessory, for example, is not worth a serious man. He simply will not understand such a present, and may be offended for your ignorance of his tastes.
3. Tool kit
It will be useful for those who like to do something with their own hands. Also, with such a present, you can hint that it is time to learn how to repair and fix something. In the second case, keep in mind that your ex may not like your hint. But, if you want to finally break off relations, the gift is quite suitable. Moreover, in any case, sooner or later it will come in handy.
If the ex-husband is an avid fisherman, spinning will be a great gift. Just specify the models that he likes. If desired, you can additionally purchase a whole fishing set: hooks, floats and everything else.
5. Board game
It will help you relax and have fun with friends. And if you want to get back together with your ex-husband, the game is a great reason to get closer. The gift should be chosen based on the preferences of the former. A card lover, for example, will like a poker set, while a thoughtful and serious man will like chess. If you are unsure of the choice, get a neutral game like forfeits or monopoly.
If your ex is always late for something and doesn’t keep track of time at all, give him a watch. You can engrave them with a good wish. It is better not to give such a gift to a superstitious person, since this is a bad omen. But, if you do not plan to get closer and maintain a relationship, then why not?
7. Fitness bracelet
With this gift, you will show that you care about the health of your ex-spouse. Thanks to the bracelet, he will be able to control the pulse, the number of steps taken and monitor calories. Especially such a gift will be appreciated by fans of sports and a healthy lifestyle.
A non-binding gift that shows you care. You can choose simple warm slippers or made in the form of funny animals. If your ex’s feet are constantly cold, choose heated options.
9. Runaway alarm clock
For many people, getting up in the morning is a difficult task. A running alarm clock will help you finally wake up. While the former will run after him to turn it off, the dream will take off as if by magic. In addition, running in the morning is very good for health.
1. Smartphone projector
A small device will be appreciated by a movie lover. It allows you to project an image from your phone onto any surface. A man can watch his favorite movies or cartoons anywhere.

And to hint that you do not mind getting together, your joint photos will help. You can choose a compact model or one made in the original form, for example, a symbol of the coming year.
A relevant gift, because after parting, a man probably has to cook on his own more often. By presenting such a present, you will help him in this difficult matter. You can choose a product for “dummies” or a book with complex gastronomic delights, if the man is “friends” with the stove.
A gift will appeal to a tourist, hunter or fisherman. You can choose models with a large number of compartments for long hikes or a compact urban bacweack. Consider sizes too. If the former goes outdoors for a short time, choose small models; for lovers of long overnight stays, it is better to purchase a larger option.

Just to please the former and indicate your respect for him, non-binding presents will help: slippers, a scarf or a New Year’s souvenir.
