Boyfriend Birthday Gift Ideas ♥

It was Liams birthday last month, and I had pretty much no idea at all what to get him! I did consider a smart watch,
but he said he hates wearing watches so I needed to buck up my ideas.
What do you buy for a guy? They don’t need many clothes, they don’t use
make up, they don’t find fancy toiletries very appealing, posh pants are
boring… I was a bit stuck, but after a long few days of scouring the
internet I picked him up some lovely things!

Liam travels home from the Army a lot on weekends, I thought it would
be nice to get him a smart holdall bag to use for his trips. I know
River Island is one of his preferred stores, and I’d seen him eye up
this bag already! It’s a nice dark brown leather look holdall,
with plenty of zipped pockets. He also has a nice leather Ted Baker
wash bag that I bought him last year which goes nicely with this! He
loves this bag and uses it frequently!

 In keeping with the gentleman’s leather theme, I also got him this very smart Ted Baker phone case
for his iPhone. Ted Baker is his favourite brand, and I love their mens
accessories. This goes really nicely with the holdall bag, and keeps
his phone nice and safe! It fits really snuggly to keep it secure, as
well as still allowing access to all buttons and ports. It even has a
slot to keep his cards in too! He’s been using his posh new phone case
whenever he comes home at weekends, as he’s worried it will get ruined
at Army camp!

wasn’t too sure about this t-shirt as it’s got a really large print on
it, and I know he prefers plain styled tops. But he has always liked
these sugarskull type designs, so I instantly thought of his when I saw
it! It was only £12 from ASOS,
although it’s now out of stock. I think Liam likes the design of the
top, although it’s a bit big for him so will probably just wear it as a
lounging top.

I normally buy Liam Diesel Only The Brave fragrance, but I thought he could do with trying something new, so picked this Paco Rabanne Invictus fragrance set.. he loves it and so do I! What a lucky boyfriend he is.

finally, a more personal gift from me, his favourite cake, a Victoria
sponge with vanilla buttercream and strawberry jam. Because I’m a softy I
made it heart shaped too! It was delicious!

    He got very spoilt… It's my boyfriends birthday on the 10th of August and he to is also very hard to buy for. Thankfully after spending an hour or two searching the web I've managed to find him some decent things to open x
