Is your boyfriend or husband an incredibly difficult man to buy gifts for? If so, then you might want to check out the guide below. By doing so and taking the advice that is given, his birthday will no longer be a date that you dread, your Christmas shopping will be made a lot easier, and Valentine’s Day will be a breeze.

Here are some of the best present you can gift your male partner:

Cook him his favourite meal

How often do you cook for your partner? More to the point, how often do you cook his absolute favorite meal? You will make him feel really special if you do, so set some time aside to slave away in the kitchen for a while, get those pots and pans out, and get cooking.

If you’re a really bad cook, fear not, as you can always just treat your fella to a restaurant meal. If you take this course of action, though, just make sure that you choose a restaurant that your partner is going to like — preferably, it should be somewhere where neither of you have eaten before.

Kit him out in trendy clothes

The cost of buying new clothes might be what holds your boyfriend back when it comes to updating his wardrobe, which is why you should take it upon yourself to kit him out in trendy clobber. This kind of gift will be very much appreciated on your boyfriend’s part as it will help him to save money, and it will give you a chance to personalise his look around your tastes. When it comes to finding trendy male clothes, make sure to head to Mr.Start. Here, you will find made-to-measure clothes that come in a selection of England’s finest fabrics.

Make something for him

If you’re tight on cash or if you feel like getting a bit crafty, then it might be a good idea to make something for your boyfriend. This could be anything, from a customised calendar to a personalised iTunes playlist.

Throw him a surprise party

Your boyfriend may have said he doesn’t want a party for his birthday…but is he telling the truth? If you’re feeling particularly brave, and if you have the time, patience and money to do so, why not throw him a surprise party? You don’t have to wait until milestones birthdays to take this kind of action — any given birthday on any given year will do.

Treat him to an annual subscription

Chances are, there is something out there that your boyfriend pays for on and off but will never commit to with an annual subscription because of financial constraints. Whatever this thing may be, whether it’s a magazine, a streaming service, or a sports ticket, invest in the annual subscription for him. By doing so, the impact of your gift will be felt well into the future and it will constantly remind your man about just how great a partner you are — in this instance, it really is a win-win.
