Fun and Practical Gift Ideas For Your Boyfriend

Regardless of how easy they might be to shop for, choosing a suitable gift for your boyfriend can be tricky, particularly if you want to buy him something that will be practical as well as fun. Here are a few great gift ideas that balance enjoyment and purpose perfectly.

Unleash Smartphone Cinema

Is your partner destined to be the next Francis Ford Coppola or Steven Spielberg? With the tools for professional filmmaking becoming ever more accessible, many companies are now producing apps and add-ons to enable high quality filming on the latest smartphones. One great little gadget is a Fish Eye Lens attachment for iPhone 4, 4s and 5. This simple case and screw-in lens will help to take artistic mobile filmmaking to a whole new level, with amazing 160° angle shots now made easy in the palm of your hand.

I’ve Got The Power

Some might think it a slight cliché, but in fact buying good quality power tools for your partner is actually a very sensible gift. Naturally, if your man would rather sit around playing computer games, then a cordless drill might be hint that falls on deaf ears. If your boyfriend is the practical type though, power tools such as the new Makita 4.0Ah power drill from Anglia Tool Centre could be the perfect gift; not only will he have a new toy to play with, but you might get some free labour done around the house as well.


Electric bicycles, or ‘e-bikes’ have truly come into their own in recent years and it is easy to understand why. For not only are e-bikes fun to ride, but they are also a healthy, economical and eco-friendly mode of transport and relaxation. To their advantage, e-bike riders can avoid the pains of morning and afternoon traffic, whilst controlling just how much they choose to rely on the bike to get them where they need to go.
