We've All Been There: Top Gifts On Amazon, Because We Forgot Our Boyfriend's B-Day

It's hard even to try and imagine a world where online shopping doesn't exist. At this point, people can pretty much order anything and everything with a simple click of a button.

Websites like Amazon have opened up a whole new world of shopping where a person never has to leave their home but can still get everything that they need. They never have to trudge around town, going from shop to shop in search of the precisely perfect gift. People don't even have to put pants on when they shop! It's so genius.

The bonus to online shopping on sites like Amazon is that even if a person manages to forget to shop for their favorite guy or their number one gal's special day, they can probably hop on the computer or the phone and order something that will be at their doorstep in roughly one day.

For a lot of people, Amazon is the closest they will ever get obtaining a personal assistant. And people are so glad that they never have to live in a world where gift browsing cannot be done from their couches. With sites and services like Amazon, there is no excuse for not slaying every single birthday gift—and that include's the BF's nearly-forgotten big day!

So get shopping!

If your man is a bit of a recluse and also tends to travel a lot, then this is the perfect gift for him.

It's a travel pillow WITH a built-in hoodie so that he can block out light as well as any unwanted civilization.

Social butterflies are great, but not everyone wants to be on display all of the time. It's okay to shut the world out for a minute. Having to travel continually is exhausting, and you can't make the back and forth go away, but at least with this, you can make it all slightly more bearable for the person whom you love.

21 A Cooling Memory Foam Pillow

Mattress Clarity

Nothing says "I love you baby" like giving the person in your life a good night's sleep. Sleep is an essential component of life. A lack thereof affects our mood, our brain power, and our general ability to function as a human being.

Without sleep can your guy truly be a Prince Charming? Probably not.

A cooling memory foam pillow will send him straight to slumberland so that he may wake up refreshed and ready to take on the day. Maybe he will sleep so soundly that he will even wake up early and prepare you breakfast in bed?

20 Alexa Smart Speaker

The best part of this gift is, you'll get a break from him forever asking you millions of random questions. With Alexa, he can have all of his many quandaries answered almost immediately. Think of how much stronger your relationship is going to be once you no longer have to be annoyed at his asking you every fleeting thought that passes through his brain. This gift serves you both and is far cheaper than having to fork over money for marital therapy someday.

We love our gym rats, but let's be honest ladies; NO one out there precisely looks forward to rubbing down their man's gnarly feet at the end of the day. We aren't sure that feet rubbing is included in that whole unconditional love plan.

Take this chore off of your list, but still maintain your number one spot in his heart by getting him an object that will rub his tired feet for you.

18 The Good Hurt Fuego Pack

What can we say? Men love themselves some spicy sauce. Guys firmly believe that if you add a hearty portion of salsa to any dish, it will automatically elevate the food to epic levels of taste. DO guys have different taste buds than women? Maybe. We certainly do not share their views about obsessing over spicy sauce, but we do like to see our men happy, so get them something that they love for their special day. These sauces will upgrade all of their meals (according to them at least) plus they come with super cute packaging.

If you want to up your girlfriend game, cook him a nice steak to go with his sauce selection.

via daveandadamscardworld.com

His inner eight-year-old will worship you. Every man in their thirties once owned a Nintendo or a Sega, and that old box of fun likely holds a very special place in his heart to this day.

Many game systems have probably come and gone, but there is never one quite like your first.

Bring back all the feels for your man with this. Throw in a few old school games and get ready to settle in for the next 48 hours. He won't be leaving the house for a while once he hooks this thing up.

12 The Hungover Cookbook

Forget the boyfriend, get this for yourself! In all honesty, this cute book is perfect for the guy who likes to party all day and wakes up starving by noon. Maybe throw it in a gift bag with a bottle of his favorite spirits and hope he cracks the thing open the next day while you try and sleep off your poor decisions.

This book is stuffed full of hangover-decreasing recipes, jokes, insights quizzes, and mind games. Hangovers are the worst thing in the world, but this little yellow book makes this just a tiny bit more tolerable.

11 Matador Mini Pocket Blanket

If your guy craves the open air and wild and rugged terrain of the outdoors, then consider giving him the Matador Mini Pocket Blanket.

You never know, he might get lost out in the wilderness someday, and this blanket could save his life.

He will have you to eternally thank. We don't personally grasp the whole appeal of this thing, but then again our idea of camping usually involves a hotel and someone else's pillows. We may never accompany him into the woods and hang out in his tent, but we can at least add to his collection of wilderness inspired tools.

10 Fred SOCIAL CLIMBERS Sloth Drink Markers


Whoa. First off, these drink markers are sloths, so this purchase is already an obvious win.

We say collect them all.

This particular brand of footwear is of high quality and full of fun prints that will help put a bit of pep in your guy's step come Monday mornings.

My, my how the times have changed my friends. We wish we could go back in time and tell our ten-year-old selves that someday birthday socks would be celebrated as would things like naps and boring weekends.

Dog lovers are so attractive, aren't they? This lightweight carrier will have him able to bring along your fur-babies wherever you guys go, and for seventy dollars, it's a pretty great deal.

6 Bacon And Bourbon Candle

This candle will send his soul swooning. Nothing says, "Let's celebrate your birthday with a little bit of romance like a candle." It's a great gift so long as your boyfriend lights it up at his place. Bacon is an excellent smell IF we get to eat it eventually, but the jury is still out on a bacon scented candle. Call us ladies crazy, but we prefer the sweet aromas of florals and oils.

This savory candle might even cost less than a slab of decent bacon if we are frank. But, this awesome Amazon find will only set you back fifteen dollars. Give it a shot and light it up on his big day.

5 Shoe Dog By Phil Night

Because we love our men brawny, but also brainy! Imagine it: you snuggled up with your favorite paperback and him with his nose buried deep in this read. Perfect for winter birthdays are we right? Men who love to read are attractive, but guys who go throwback and pick up an actual binding and paper book are smoking.

If your guy loves himself some books, make sure and get him something that will hold his attention.

This read is perfect for all kinds of guys from sports-loving lads to empire building dudes. You might just find yourself skimming it after he is done reading it, we hear that it is THAT good.

4 Levi's Men's Two-Pocket Puffer Hooded Jacket

If he doesn't already have a puffer coat in his collection, be the human in his life to buy him this and do him a solid. Puffer coats somehow became an absolute must have over the last decade, so make sure your guy has one in his closet. There are of course a million different brands to consider, but Levi is an old and trusted brand that he will undoubtedly recognize. Show me one guy over twenty who didn't own at least a few Levi brand pairs of jeans back in the day. He will thank you for this great gift when he is standing out in the cold in the middle of winter.

Puffer coats after stylish and warm as heck.

3 PhoneSoap 2.0

Why don't we all own this by now? This gadget looks like a tiny tanning bed for your smartphone, but it is so much more.

This contraption essentially zaps all of the gross bacteria that clings to your phone with powerful UV-C light.

It also charges while it cleans, thanks to a small hole in the back of the box. While it is charging and sanitizing, you are still able to hear it sound off, and it comes in a ton of different colors. If your love is constantly connected to his phone, making important calls, then do him a solid and get him this. At sixty dollars, this is a great buy.

2 Mr. Beer Premium Craft Beer Kit

There is a zero percent chance you will go wrong with this gift. Guys love crafts beer just about as much as they love spicy sauce. This edition helps them learn how to create and perfect their very own batch of beer. Not only do they get to drink it, but they can be a part of the entire beer making process.

Beer making is a hobby that even we think we can part-take in. Okay, so maybe we aren't precisely pumped at the whole making of the beer, but we will definitely help our men drink the final product!

1 WILIT Business Leather Desk Lamp

We do love a gadget that does several things all at the same time, and we think your boyfriend will love this too. Your guy is going to look so important with this thing sitting on his desk.

It not only seems cool and businesslike, but it tells time, the temperature, and has a calendar embedded in it.

It even contains an alarm clock just in case he has big birthday plans of catching a nap underneath his desk. The light component also has three different lighting modes to choose from. This thing is like the spaceship of all lamps, and we are confident that he needs this sitting in his office.
