2010 Gift Guide: Best Boyfriend Gifts
Buying gifts for your family and friends is hard enough - you want to get something they’ll both love and enjoy using - not always the easiest thing especially if they’re known for being a little bit picky! Boyfriend gifts can be even trickier - what if he is too shy to tell you exactly what he wants? Or what if he really is the boy who seems to already have everything? Since he’s your boyfriend, you also want the gift to be both thoughtful and to remind him of what a great girlfriend you are of course. With a bit of creativity and thinking like a guy, you can figure out the best gifts to spoil your boyfriend with this holiday season! Remember, the best gifts are thoughtful ones so be creative! If you're on a strict budget this year, bake him his favorite cookies and just get some cute stuffing stockers! We've put together a list of some cool things we think a lot of boys would find cool!
2010 Gift Guide: Best Boyfriend Gifts
Lomography Fisheye Camera, $48
Let’s face it, we all love nifty little gadgets! If your guy is into photography - he will love this Lomography Fisheye Camera. It turns all of your photos into a distorted circular image making everything look more artsy and unique - and from a “fisheye perspective”. Even a photo of his dog will look more awesome with this camera. The best part is that it uses 35mm film that can be processed anywhere!

There’s a good chance your boyfriend likes to wear cool tee-shirts. We’d even bet that he incorporates a tee-shirt into his daily outfit. Threadless.com is a super cool website with some of the most creative tee-shirt designs we’ve seen out there at the best prices. The artwork for the shirts are submitted by regular people who submit their designs to the website. The shirts are then judged by everyone on the website over 7 days and the winning design is sold on the website! We’re pretty sure you’ll see something your boyfriend would like - a bonus is that they are having an awesome holiday sale right now. Favorites at the moment are the Celestial Cat and the Woodchucks tee-shirt (both shown below)!

Recycled Boombox Ipod Speakers
This is the funkiest little portable iPod/mp3 player speakers we’ve seen in a long time. Made out of recycled candy boxes. Not only does it look unique and pretty snazzy on his nightstand, the speakers provide quality, clear-sounding music.

We don’t like to encourage laziness but for pure novelty, this talking watch is pretty groovy. All he has to do is simply press a button on the watch and it will tell you what time it is. There is even an alarm installed in the watch. As long as he doesn’t use this watch during class of course! You wouldn’t want him to get in trouble for being too noisy!

Just like in the movie Juno, this hamburger phone adds a fun twist to any bedroom. If you spend a lot of time chatting on the phone to your boyfriend, imagine how fun it will be to picture him talking to you on this realistic looking telephone. It’s so cute, you might even want to get one for yourself.

It’s cold outside. And you notice that your boyfriend is wearing the same ratty hat he’s been sporting for the past two years. Or maybe that is a tea cozy that his mom left lying around the house? Either way, you’re pretty sure he needs a cool new hat. Trapper hats are all the rage this winter for both girls and guys. They’re cool looking and super warm because they cover your ears and are usually made of faux fur or fleece like these ones from Forever 21!
