Sometimes it can be really difficult to pick out gifts for someone you love. 

It's easy to run out of ideas or to spend hours running around town looking for that special thing that shows you how much you love them.

It is particularly difficult when it comes to shopping for your boyfriend. They are a different species in themselves and sometimes we really don't get them.

Well lucky for you, we have come up with a list of ideas that are bound to get you in the good books.

Here are 8 gift ideas for you to treat your boyfriend to.

1. Star Wars baseball jacket, GameStop

With the massive hype already starting for the next Star Wars installment, Star Wars: The Last Jedi this is the perfect gift if your boyfriend is a massive fan. The new jacket is part of GameStop's new autumn and winter collection that will be launching over the next few weeks. We got a look at some of the pieces last week and instantly fell in love. I even want one for myself. 

Keep an eye out on their website for when it will go on sale.

3. PlayStation VR Headset, Littlewoods

If your significant other is addicted to his PlayStation he is going to love you for this. You may think that he spends a lot of time playing games on it (which is kind of true) but if you get this VR headset you'll be the best person in the world.

Plus you'll get to play it too. Bonus!

You will have to splash out a little bit as it costs €399 from but it's totally worth it.



4. Game Of Thrones Risk, Easons

Pretty much everybody watches Game Of Thrones and there is a lot of talk and hype after the last season just finished. Well if they love the books and hit show then the ever so popular board-game, Risk, has brought of a Game Of Thrones edition. 


It will be great for a cold winter night in and is bound to provide hours of entertainment (and arguing).

You can pick it up for €49 in Easons.



5. Nintendo Switch, Smyths

If your boyfriend is a big gamer then Nintendo's Switch is the ideal gift. The console which launched earlier this year is great for those on the go who like to game. It's portable, compact and has a great number of games. I'm speaking from experience.

You can race it out against each other on Mario Kart 8 and Zelda fans will love The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

There are some cool games to be released by the end of the year as well. Maybe they can be a Christmas present?

You can buy the popular Nintendo console for €329.99 at Smyths.



6. Black Borg Collar Peacoat, Topman

With the cold weather soon setting in it's time to wrap up and keep warm. This Topman coat is bound to keep your man looking slick and warm this winter time.

It can pretty much go with anything and is simple enough if he is fussy about what he likes to wear. It's bound to last him a good while as well.

You can buy it for €100 from Topman.

7. A gift voucher for My Meat Wagon

I don't know about you but my boyfriend is a big meat lover. If they're a fan of chicken wings, steaks or any kind of meat, a gift voucher for My Meat Wagon will go down really well. The restaurant at Smithfield Market Square is a must see.

Just look at the mouth watering food.

8. A European getaway
