Just Because Gifts For Him

Show how much you love the man in your life by buying him a surprise gift. Don’t wait for special occasions like birthdays, Christmas or anniversaries, let him know how much you care all year through. Because he’s not expecting a gift he’ll get a nice surprise and will realize he’s always in your thoughts however hectic a lifestyle you lead. 

I think it’s important to keep your relationship exciting and fun no matter what age you are or how long you’ve been together, and it needn’t break the bank. Something like a little love note under their pillow or heart shaped sandwiches for their lunch are nice and inexpensive way to remind them how much they mean to you. It can help to take the strain off your budget at Christmas time if you just buy your partner a small gift and then buy him something bigger when the budget allows.

We are lucky to be in a position where we have almost everything we want or need and so at birthday and Christmas time it’s hard to buy gifts for each other. We get lots of gifts from other people so don’t miss getting a large gift from each other. It’s much nicer to receive a just because gift of something you really want no matter what the date is.



Below are some of the gifts I have bought my husband over the years, I hope they give you some ideas!

Stainless Steel Men's Watch


Show him that your love for him is timeless by choosing this beautiful watch with a romantic inscription.













The stunning watch pictured above is very similar to one I bought my husband a few years ago as a just because gift. He had been looking for a good looking but functional watch for a while and was very pleased with his gift which is still going strong today. 

This watch has something very special on the reverse. There is a romantic inscription which reads “For the memories of yesterday, For the happiness of today, For the promise of tomorrow. I love you." A beautiful way to remind him how much you love him.

The stainless steel of this watch has contrasting 24K gold plating on the bezel and bracelet which gives a rich and luxurious look. There is just one roman numeral on the watch face, the other numbers are represented by diamonds for a touch of extravagance. 

This is a gift that can be enjoyed for many years and it will remind him of you every time he looks at it.

A Good Camera


A camera is a great gift idea for anyone of any age to record the most important events in life and for the fun times too. Most mobile phones have a camera on them these days and some of them take great pictures. But if your man is a photo buff, like mine, he’ll appreciate a decent camera and quality pictures. 


We enjoy using ours to take family photos, especially of our granddaughter who is growing up fast, too fast really. It’s great to look back and see how much she’s grown and changed and look forward to taking more of the “first” photos. 




Maybe your loved one likes to take photos of family, sporting events or hobbies. Whatever you use it for a camera is a great way of recording your life. Take a Look at Some of The Cameras Most People Wish For

iphone/ipad Speaker Dock


It seems like everyone has an iphone these days and we can’t imagine life without ours now. We don’t make too many calls but we do love all the other benefits the iphone offers. I love to listen to music so when I’m cooking or baking I slip my iphone into it’s dock and sing along, sure helps kitchen chores pass by more quickly!

I also like the fact that while I’m enjoying the great sound quality of the music, my iphone is getting charged too. Some of these docks also have an alarm feature so he can wake up to his favorite tunes. Of course these docks are also compatible with ipods. Do you think he would like your husband/boyfriend would like one of these? Take a Look at One of The Many Models on Offer Here

Leather Wallet

Another great personal, yet not expensive gift idea for a man. I bought my husband a leather wallet about twelve years ago and he still uses it everyday. I chose one with plenty of credit card slots, some don’t seem to have many, which also come in handy for storing business and membership cards. 

Most men prefer a slim line wallet that doesn’t wear the fabric or cause an uncomfortable bulge in their pocket. If you choose to buy your partner a new wallet I’m afraid I can’t guarantee that he’ll buy you more treats than he did before!

Kindle Fire

The Kindle Fire is the perfect gift for the man who loves music, books, games, movies and apps, which I think includes most men on the planet! He can have everything he needs on one easy to use tablet and all in beautiful, vibrant color. 

This is a great tablet for the family man as it is sturdy enough to take the rough handling of kids with a huge selection of activities for little ones. It's also a great place to store photos and it's so easy to share them with others by email. Or you can take your Kindle along with you when you visit friends and relatives to show them pictures of your latest adventures. 



I hope you’ve found a good idea for a just because gift for your partner here. If not try looking out for hints as to what he might like when he’s watching TV, surfing the net or when you’re shopping together. Listen for any comments he might make about something that he likes or would find useful. Find a way to let him know how special he is with a thoughtful, loving gift.
