3. The Ridge wallet is the slimmest and safest wallet you can buy your guy.

The Ridge Wallet$76 shipped (regularly $95)

Although this is spendy for a wallet, it’s the last one he’ll ever need. Bye, bye bulky wallet! The innovative design of this sleek wallet makes it the slimmest on the market and is one he’ll forget he’s even carrying! It can hold up to 12 cards, has RFID Blocking for peace of mind, and conveniently holds cash too. It’s another gift I’ve personally given to my guy (over 2 years ago now!) and I can assure you it’s worth every penny!

The Ridge also makes the same wallet with a money strap as opposed to the clip! My guy has used it for almost 3 years now and it doesn’t lose its elasticity whatsoever.

If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly option, though, the Savage Spartan Tactical Wallet has a very similar look, with many of the same features, and has great reviews. Snag it for only $34.95 on Amazon! Plus, there’s currently a 5% off digital coupon.


4. An Apple AirTag is perfect for the forgetful boyfriend.

One of these gifts for your boyfriend could end up saving him time and time again! If your guy is constantly forgetting things, this is the perfect idea to keep track of his belongings.

You could also grab a keychain holder (as low as $9.99) for his keys, or he could consider slipping one in his golf bag, wallet, and anything else he’s constantly misplacing.


5. This Keurig is perfect for your work-from-home boyfriend who likes to stay caffeinated.

If your guy is into the Pumpkin Spice trend, Sam’s Club has a BIG Starbucks Pumpkin Spice K-Cups 64-Count Box for under $30 that you could snag for him.


6. Any movie fanatic will enjoy this scratch-off poster.

Or check out this Movie Bucket List book for $30 if he tends to be pretty indecisive about what to watch. Each movie page will be a surprise and has its own spread with space to add photos or ticket stubs, a notes section, and stars to give the film your own rating.

HIP TIP: Be prepared…these are the best TV streaming services and the best prices to watch your favorite movies.


7. Your guy will thank you every day for this gift.

LUXE Bidet NEO 185 – $47.99 shipped

Ladies, listen. This may seem like a gag gift, but there is not a single man who doesn’t appreciate a clean tushie and this bidet is SO much more affordable than just about any other one on the market! Chances are your guy spends a significant amount of time on the toilet anyway, so there’s no reason he shouldn’t be leaving the bathroom fresh and feeling like a new man.

All jokes aside, this is an affordable bidet option that doesn’t require electricity or special tools so it’s simple for any guy to install. Even better, it’ll save him money on toilet paper too! 🙌🏼

Here’s another bidet under $90 my future in-laws purchased which is slightly more, but has temperature control!

These bracelets will signify a mutual connection, a strong relationship, or whatever else you find meaningful to you. Best of all, these bracelets are available in multiple colorways to perfectly complement both of your styles.


9. Grab a set of these clear bins if your guy is into collecting nice shoes.

Even cooler, the Bluetooth can turn them into a speaker! How cool! 


15. Gift him an experience he’ll never forget.

An experience gift – Potentially FREE!

Some of the very best gifts are experiences money can’t buy! We’re huge fans of experiences over gifts so if you’re still searching for the perfect gifts for your boyfriend then consider something you can do together. This doesn’t have to cost money either! There are many things you could do like book a hiking trip or find a free concert you can attend.

You could also buy your experience and consider fun ideas like skydiving, concerts, a mini getaway, and more! Search your local area on Groupon for fun things to save on!


We’ve got affordable gift ideas for everyone on your list!
