His birthday is coming up – do you already have plans for that special day? Aside from dinner or staycation plans, have you also come up with any birthday gift ideas for hubby or boyfriend? Well, don’t fret if you have not. Men are not very picky and demanding creatures so you need not find fancy things just to make sure that they will love your gift.
Still, if you have been giving birthday gifts for him for some time now, you have probably already started running out of ideas on what to give. If you have just started dating, you probably also do not have any clue on what to get him – so, indeed, what should you buy to please your man on his birthday? Try to listen to what he says he wants and likes or you can also pay close attention to his hobbies and interests and that should be enough clue for you.
We have also come up with a list of the best and least expensive birthday gift items for him so you do not have to do all the guesswork and you also do not have to spend an arm and a leg. Remember that your man will probably just want to be with you and spend time with you. Don’t stress yourself out too much trying to find the perfect gift. The fact that you are around for him on his special day is already a major present for him. But, if you insist, you can always check out our list of the best birthday gift ideas below.
It is rare for a man to not love alcoholic drinks and, when it is not beer, it is probably whiskey that they want. And, do you know a great and cool way to serve whiskey? We will let you in on a secret: use this personalized American Oak aging barrel and your man will love every bit of it, guaranteed.
What makes this an awesome gift to give for your husband’s or boyfriend’s birthday? The personal touch, of course! It comes beautifully engraved and handcrafted to perfection. You might also want to take note that the American white oak used for this barrel is new and not reclaimed. It comes with a medium toast for aging perfection and can be used over and over again for up to eight years. Yes, your hubby can finally have his own wine (or whiskey) cellar right at home!
You might probably ask, why should you age whiskey in such small barrels? Did you know that when there is lesser quantity stored, it helps age the spirits faster by up to 10 times than normal? You can use physics to your advantage and, this time around, smaller is better because it will help achieve that perfect taste much faster.
Overall, we love the fact that this aging barrel is made of excellent quality. It is quite heavy which will make you feel better knowing that you have purchased an item that does not come from China or Walmart. You can try out putting in some hot water into the barrel before adding the whiskey and you will see that it is sealed tight and has no leaks.
If your husband or boyfriend is a fan of whiskey, scotch or other similar drinks and cannot wait to taste them after it ages, definitely give this as a birthday present for him. This awesome gift will turn any $60 bottle of whiskey into something that is worth $120 in just a matter of weeks. This one makes it to the top spot in our list.

We all loved well groomed men, most especially if they are ones that we can actually cuddle and kiss afterwards. Ahhh…nothing beats the smell of men’s aftershave and when you see him with a clean shave, you will probably want a little bit more of him.
Okay, so this product is not just the best birthday gift for him but for you as well. Women love it when men keep up with their looks, not so much that they become vain but just enough that they always stay handsome and presentable no matter what the situation. Through the help of this package complete with essential grooming products, you know that your man will always keep up with his looks simply because you want him to look and smell good all the time.
This ManCave Originals is of awesome quality and we love that it has been put together for us. Women are clueless on what items to include in a grooming kit and this package removes the guesswork. Then again, you also cannot see these products individually at the same cost that the package comes in so that is a huge bargain already. It comes with great products. We love the shampoo and face and body wash. Most of all, we like the smell of the aftershave and moisturizer and we highly recommend men to use it on and on.
ManCave products come with Cedarwood scent that will remind you of the fresh scent of a mountainous forest – but this one is right inside the comforts of your home. The package introduces the five-step regime that men should start adding into their routines and we love that it has been made simple for the busy man.
Overall, we think that this product is superb and at an inexpensive price tag, it is definitely a worthy investment to make for your man. Your hubby or boyfriend will definitely love that you are giving this as a birthday present for him. We are putting this one in the second spot in the list.

Do you have a boyfriend or husband who is obsessed with beer? Why not turn this obsession into a work of art? Let him collect all the caps from his favorite bottles of beer and place them in this USA beer cap map – now that is goal setting right there!
Why do we love this item as a husband present? Well, it obviously is a great way to show off one’s love for beer. It is nice not to just stick to one flavor – you need to try out the other varieties as well in order to expand your beer “palate”. After all, you need to experience the world, right? And what better way to explore the entire USA, in this case, than to try all the beer varieties that are offered in the country. Of course, you might also want to add in your beer cap collection from all over the world.
This awesome birthday present idea is also a great way to create a compromise at home. Your husband or boyfriend can keep all the masculine things that he has but he has to make sure that it looks good and is cohesive with the house’s theme. The only way women will allow beer bottles inside the house is when they are organized in a beautiful manner and turned into a map. If the 177 bottle caps are not enough, you can also move on to other maps including Central America and Canada. Now that is a great way to show both your love for travel and beer. Cool, huh?
We certainly love this great cap holder and would want to complete even more maps but we would also like to give a word of advice. It may take some time to get used to molding the caps perfectly in place but once you get the hang of it, you will breeze through it and complete your map in just a day (if you have enough caps). Awesome gift for the special man in your life; so we put this one in third place.
For those with husbands or boyfriends who simply love working in front of the grill, this is the best birthday gift idea for him. Grilling kabobs and other small food items that are just too small to be placed over the grill is now made possible – and easier – through the use of this product.
This grilling basket comes with nonstick-coated steel so the burnt food does not stick to the metal while you are cooking. It also comes with rosewood handles and has a lid that latches on to the metal to make sure that the food stays secured inside the basket. You do not have to worry about constantly trying to secure everything inside because the basket will already do that for you.
But, as much as we really love the output that these grilling baskets have, we cannot say the same thing to the overall quality of the product. For starters, the nonstick coat of the metal is not very effective and it can be such a pain to clean. If you are cooking meat, it becomes extremely hard to take them off as it sticks on the little crossbars and you will end up scraping everything with a knife. If you do not want to deal with this, try to spray a bit more oil – and do this often – to prevent food from sticking to the basket. Otherwise, be sure to prepare your scrub sponges and brushes because it will require a ton of scrubbing work. If your man does not mind, then make this a birthday present for him.
Still, we like that it reduces the need to cube the veggies and meat and skewer everything. This also makes a great birthday gift for busy people and those who have kids to look after. Sadly, we feel that the quality is a little too flimsy, although just right for the price point, so we have to place this at the fourth position in our list.

It is obviously very rare for a man not to love his alcohol and if your boyfriend or hubby wants to be a little more adventurous when it comes to his drinks, this is the perfect guidebook to accompany him.
What makes this an awesome birthday present for him is that this book perfectly details the art of moonshining, or home distilling, in manner that is easy to understand. The author shares not just his life of travel and adventure but also his experience in the art of distillation. From the sound of it, it does seem like the author knows a lot more than we believe him to know. He discusses the different types of distilling as well as the equipment and methods being used to arrive to different results.
As soon as your husband or boyfriend flips through the first pages of this book, he will probably be on his way to purchase everything that has been added into the shopping list. The book even comes with pictures and links to show the process. Do not be surprised if your man creates a “lab” of his own so he could distill his own liquors. Aside from sharing the processes and shopping lists, the author also adds in some recipes that will be useful in the distilling journey. This includes knowing how to create liquors such as scotch, whiskey and several others. You will definitely enjoy the outcome of this one should your hubby try to pursue it.
Although this is a very simple birthday gift for him, it comes packed with a lot of information that he will find useful. This book is, by no means, the most comprehensive one there is on the subject but it gives a great introduction to the art of making liquor. It’s a great way to start and your hubby will love you for it. Sadly, we will have to put this on the bottom spot as we feel that there are better books than this one.
Did that help you come up with a great birthday present idea for him? We sure hope so. We know we have been placing a lot of emphasis on beers, whiskeys and other liquors but then again isn’t that what most men love? And, we are quite sure you share the same taste with your man, too.
Don’t be too hard on yourself if you cannot come up with the most perfect gift for his birthday. The idea will come and, in case it does not, you always use this list of reviews as a cheat sheet. Who knows he might just like every bit of item that we have listed in here. Happy birthday to the most important man in your life!
