Buying your boyfriend a gift is hard AF. I personally never know if they would prefer something filled with bacon or something of quality. Or if they’d even know if it was something of quality.
Girls are significantly easier to buy Christmas presents for than their male counterparts. I mean, everything they want is easily listed on their Pinterest board called “Gifts I want for Christmas”.
For me, buying a gift for the guy I’m dating varies drastically based on the amount of time you’ve been dating. What is the protocol for gifts for your boyfriend of six months? Or a year and a half?!
No fear, your Boyfriend Gift Guide is here. Whether you’ve been together for six months or six years, whether your guy is into whiskey or golf, the perfect presents are all below.

(Dating Your Boyfriend 2 Years or More)
Your gifts are like wine, they get better with age. As you’ve now been dating for two plus years (whoa baby – keep it UP!), you want to get something special. If you live together, I love the in-home gifts. These tare things that you can both enjoy. If he needs a new hobby or loves to host, the turn tables are a hit. You can’t go wrong!
