If your boyfriend is a wine snob or beer lover then take him on a local tasting tour. Scope out the best breweries and wine bars nearby and take him to taste the best your city has to offer. If you don’t want to drive or taxi around, handpick a selection and have the tasting at home.

If your boyfriend has an adrenaline junkie side, look into an activity he’s been impassioned about. Some of these activities might include outdoor and indoor skydiving, paragliding or parasailing. If he likes activities like motocross or mountain bike riding, look into bike accessories he needs.

  1. Indulge his five senses

A five senses gift is a well-rounded gift that is comprised of an individual gift for each of the senses. An example gift could be his favorite candy for taste, a soft sweater or shirt for touch, a cool art print for sight, his favorite band’s songs in a USB for sound and cologne for smell.
