While it may seem hard to believe, the holidays are right around the corner! It seems like all of a sudden we are making our lists and checking them twice and figuring out what to get for our loved ones to celebrate the end of 2020.
It comes as no surprise that your boyfriend is at the top of your list, but you may feel a bit stuck on what to get someone when we are all stuck at home. But with this list— made up of a few things every guys should own by age 30 — you’ll be done with his holiday shopping by Thanksgiving.
A virtual fitness class or subscription.
It is hard to stay active, or even get the motivation to be active when we are stuck at home. Luckily, plenty of gyms and fitness studios have developed the ability to offer classes from the comfort of your own home. These are great options for those looking to get up and move more, want to try something new, or those who may be self-conscious working out in front of people. You can add some fitness accessories like a yoga mat, dumbbells, and some athletic wear to the gift for a well-rounded Christmas present.
With new regulations put in place, we may not be able to go to the spa regularly to ease our aches and pains. So why not grab him a massage gun to help alleviate the soreness that comes from working all-day from home in a chair. These guns are quite easy to use and come with multiple heads for different targeted uses from the neck, back, and shoulders. And you can steal it too!
We all still want to smell nice even if we are working from home! Giving the gift of scent can be quite sentimental, after all, every time your boyfriend puts on that cologne they will think of you! Plus, as we are transitioning into colder weather, it only makes sense that we get a spicier, deeper scent for the changing of the seasons. You can even go the extra mile and get a cologne made by your boyfriend’s favorite celebrity like Sean John cologne, for example, This is a fantastic option for those not knowing where to start.
A Weighted Blanket
Weighted blankets are all the rage now, as they help people fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. Due to their weight — about 15 to 20 pounds, depending on the size of the gift recipient — they wrap the wearer in a cocoon that feels like a hug, which gives off a calming effect and can help with anxiety. These blankets are a great addition to everyone’s blanket collection as they are the most versatile. Your boyfriend can use it after a stressful day at work, long holiday dinners with his family, or even just to make him feel cozy at night.
What else is there to do at home but get lost in a good book? An e-reader makes this all possible, without the clutter of dozens of books lining your bookshelves. There are always e-reader specials during the holidays, and if you wanted to go the extra mile, consider loading up some of his or your favorite books on there so it’s ready to go the minute he opens the package. There’s nothing better than a book recommendation, as they tell a lot about both the giver and the receiver. So what’s not to love?
No matter your boyfriend’s interests, you’ll be sure to find something on this list to give him this holiday season. Or, go the extra mile and get them all to fill up his stocking!
