The best presents for your boyfriend (Sponsored Post)

Sometimes it's best to be honest and accept the way things are, so let's face facts: men can be impossible to buy presents for, especially boyfriends. Whether it's for their birthday, Christmas, your anniversary or a surprise, buying the right gift for the man in your life can be a daunting mission.

It's made even more difficult if you have a partner who seems to know exactly what you want and manages to get it right all year round. This year, why not show your appreciation and spoil your boyfriend for a change? Dazzle him with one of these great gift ideas.

An extreme day out

For a once-in-a-lifetime thrilling day out, it's hard to beat the RIB experience on the River Thames. Ideal for fans of the Bond films, this adrenaline-filled speedboat ride departs from London's Embankment and takes 75 minutes, reaching speeds of 45 knots. If a shaken martini is not your man's style, an indoor sky dive could be the answer to give him the chance to experience what it feels like to fly.

A luxurious new watch

Your boyfriend may not wear jewellery, but a beautifully designed watch always makes a very personal gift for a man. Depending on his style, you may opt for a timeless leather strap - Links of London specialises in quality leather watches in this style. Or, if his tastes are more modern, perhaps a quintessentially British Burberry watch with metal links will get his heart racing. 

A classic leather bag

Leather only gets better with age, so what better birthday gift could there be than a sumptuous leather weekend bag, briefcase or wash bag? Try Mr Porter for an all-too-tempting selection of designer items. A classic Mulberry holdall is bound to become a favourite standby.

A little bit of tech

No man is ever disappointed to receive the latest shiny new gadget. Tablets make a great gift, offering the perfect solution for staying in touch and keeping yourself amused when you're on the move. Alternatively, if caffeine is his only vice, a new coffee maker could make every morning a special treat.

It's an extra bonus when shopping for presents if you can earn rewards as you spend. With a rewards card from American Express UK, you can earn points on almost every purchase you make, which can be redeemed in exchange for a variety of fantastic rewards, ranging from cashback to complimentary travel, special treats and unique experiences.
