It seems the moment the leaves start changing color, Christmas decorations adorn our local superstores. While this can cause the seasonal eye-roll, it’s also a great reminder—Christmas is coming and it’s never too early to get your gifts in order. It feels a bit odd here in Mallorca as this year we are still on flip-flops and swimming in the sea, but I love to think and buy in advance when possible because I love to save money, and last minute rush means paying more for the same thing. Shopping for that special guy can offer a special kind of frustration, but I’ve made it easy. Browse these fantastic gift ideas for your boyfriend, sorted by personality type to make it even easier. Happy Christmas shopping!
Gift Ideas for the Adventurous Guy

Indulge his taste for adventure with a weekend getaway. Plan a camping trip with friends, or keep it romantic and rent a cabin for just the two of you.

My boy friend/husband of almost 49 years is easy,just take him out to dinner at Chili’s. He doesn’t care about clothes but boy does he like to eat.
Thanks for all the great suggestions tho, appreciate all your hard work looking all those ideas up to share with us.
Have wonderful week Pili.
Jane I really like that type of guy, so easy to please. No brainstorming just choose his favorite place to eat and enjoy the meal. My husband loves to eat too, but he’s quite more complicated. Oh well, who said life is easy.
Thank you so much for stopping by, have a wonderful week you too.
So many ideas Pili. My hubby is one of those adventurous ones that loves to cook (thank goodness, otherwise we’de starve or have to live off of take aways). so you’ve just made my life so much easier. Maybe we’ll do a Cooking CLass Date Night out in the wilderness somewhere. I might just learn a thing or two 😉
How is that many men loves to cook? Mine too, and I excuse myself thinking he likes it because he doesn’t have to do it every day. It’s great yours do it so you can DIY meanwhile. That Cooking Class sounds fun, any excuse is good to spend time out together.
Pili I also love that date night cooking class. Too bad I can’t take advantage of it now. I’ll have to look into something else for him. But he does love to cook.
Pili, these all sound great! I think my husband would enjoy the adventure related items. Great list of ideas!
