Best Christmas Gift Ideas for Boyfriends
Coors x Brixton 150th Durham Lined Jacket
If your boyfriend is one of the world’s many appreciators of Coors beer, he may well also be an appreciator of the jacket they recently produced in collaboration with men’s apparel brand Brixton to celebrate their 150th anniversary as a brewery. Some brands fall flat when taking a step into merchandising, but this jacket is pretty close to perfect. Simple but warm; looks great, feels great, and we think your boyfriend will love it.

Vankyo Leisure 495W Dolby Audio Projector
People with gamers and film nerd boyfriends, gather around — sure, you could try to scrape together enough cash for a giant-screen TV, or you could recognize that what your boyfriend wants is a big picture, not necessarily a big screen. That’s when you realize you should get him a projector — and this one from Vankyo delivers high-quality image and sound for a very reasonable price.

Ekster Grid Backpack
Is your boyfriend outgrowing his backpacks, but isn’t quite ready to make the jump to briefcases just yet? Wallet brand Ekster has jumped into the backpack space with their new Grid model, and it’s sort of a perfect midway point between the two — the functionality of a backpack with the grown-up chic quality of a briefcase. Besides being comfortable and stocked with a good number of zipped pockets, the structured construction of the Grid will help him look seriously sharp.

Lego Star Wars Millennium Falcon
Whatever age your boyfriend is, the urge to build stuff never really goes away for many guys, and a beautiful Lego Star Wars set like this one of the franchise’s most iconic ships is a crossover that many a kid dreams of seeing as they pull away the wrapping paper on a gift. Just prepare yourself to hear “pew-pew” noises and “Great, kid! Don’t get cocky” coming from the construction area.

Subset Organic Cotton Boxer Briefs
If underwear is the first thing he puts on in the morning, it’s sort of the foundation of his clothing, isn’t it? A good pair of underwear — one that makes you feel good about yourself and your body — is an underrated yet crucial part of having a good day, and Subset’s new boxer briefs might be just the thing. They’re comfortable, classic and sharp-looking. You’ll love seeing him in them.

Parfums de Marly Altha?r Eau de Parfum
We gave the Altha?r the honor of Best Date-Night Scent in the 2023 AskMen Dating Awards, but why should single guys have all the fun? If you like your boyfriend to smell good — like orange, cinnamon, vanilla and pralines, among others — you should give him this scent, which gives off a delectable fireside glow in a Christmas-y way. And then shower him with kisses whenever he wears it.

Dollar Shave Club Double Header Trimmer
Nothing makes a man look badass like a well-crafted beard. But, you know, emphasis on the “well-crafted” part — which many guys forget. Enter Dollar Shave Club’s new Double Header trimmer, conceived to help him look sharp every day, both face-wise and elsewhere-wise (yes, it doubles as a manscaping tool). It’s cordless, waterproof, and features a built-in LED light so he can see what he’s doing at all times.

Iron Man Water Bottle Sport Canteen 20oz

Southern Scholar Socks
Sure, socks aren’t the sexiest gift of all time — but damn if they’re not practical. If you’re searching for an accent gift to flesh out his overall present haul, you could do a lot worse than gifting him with his new favorite pair. These are surprisingly comfortable for dress socks — or are they surprisingly dressy for comfy socks? Either way, they rock.

There are lots of ways to judge a man, and one of them is by what he’s wearing. Like, is he wearing a really cool shirt?

Glerups Boot With Leather Sole
Want to ensure your boyfriend never gets cold feet? A pair of Glerups slippers might be just the thing. Made from felt, they’re beyond comfortable, incredibly durable and sharp-looking too (which is ironic, given how soft they are). The one drawback? If his feet aren’t the same size as yours, you won’t have much luck stealing them. Maybe get a matching set, just to be safe.

Maker's 46 Bourbon Whisky
Not all guys like whiskey, but the ones who do? They’ll probably like Maker’s 46. It’s a sort of fancier version of the already quite popular Maker’s Mark — nice enough to drink straight and to save for special occasions, but not so nice that it’ll break the bank.
From $38.99 at Drizly.com
Carhartt Work In Progress Wool Scarf
As the Wu-Tang Clan famously said, “protect ya neck.” After he opens this gift, your boyfriend will be clamoring for the weather to stay cool just so he can wrap this cozy number around himself and go for a walk looking both jaunty and well-insulated.

Kobo Libra 2
Is there anything sexier than a man who reads? Whether it’s for traveling, so he never has to calculate how many books, exactly, to pack for his vacation, or just for everyday use, a high-quality e-reader (like the Kobo Libra 2) could be just what he needs.

Bruno Marc Leather-Lined Formal Dress Oxfords

Sunspel Men’s Luxury British Wool Jumper
If there’s one article of clothing the boyfriend is known for, it’s the sweater. Why else would their partners always be stealing them from them?

Nikon Z30 Mirrorless Camera
You know that saying, “Take a picture, it’ll last longer”? It’s usually said in a snarky way, but there’s truth to it, and if your boyfriend’s got the photographer itch but thinks he could do more with a real camera than just the little thing built into his smartphone, it might be time to get him the Nikon Z30. Merging old-school classic looks with cutting-edge camera tech, it’ll make you both happy – because he’ll have no choice but to take some super nice pictures of you with it.
