It's the most wonderful time of the year. You know, the time when you panic because you have no idea what to buy your boyfriend. But fear not, because some of the best gifts are the ones that are right under your nose. If your mind goes blank when it's time to find the perfect holiday item, you're not alone. Sometimes all you need is a little inspiration to lead you down the path of finding the perfect gift for your boyfriend. Consider this that list.

While we won't tell you exactly what you should buy your boyfriend this year, we are going to start you off with some pretty great ideas. Not basic, per say. More like the start point to leap you into the perfect personalized gift for the man in your life that you love. 

As Good Housekeeping points out, every relationship is different. Some couples love a good laugh and others are more serious. No matter which type of relationship vibe you two have, these gifts are the perfect jumping off point when it comes to finding the perfect gift. 

A personalized dopp kit to stay organized

Sometimes the best Christmas gifts are the ones that the person is never going to buy themselves. Men don't often think about storing all of their bathroom items. Except, you know, when it comes to traveling and then they panic and throw everything into their carry-on. A dopp kit is a great holiday item because not only will they use it, but they'll also feel super polished with it sitting out in the bathroom.

Some of the dopp kits from Etsy can be personalized as well, so your boyfriend will feel extra posh this year. It's a personalized gift that will keep on giving all year 'round. Plus, you'll get the added bonus of having an organized bathroom all in the same process. 

There are tons of different options out there as well, so you can find the right fit for your boyfriend. According to New York Magazine, one of the best out there is Topo Designs Pack Bag. It sits flat and is great for travel. 

Candles to keep it fresh

Men might not just come out and say it, but they love the room smelling fresh just as much as anyone. While you may not think of candles as something to gift the man in your life, as The Zoe Report points out, they're "the catch-all for gift-giving season." 

The problem is that men often don't know where to start when it comes to looking for scented candles. There are tons of different places and scents to shop for, so you really can't blame them. That being said, you really can't go wrong with gifting them a candle.

Even if you just sneak this into the bag along with another present, it will be a hit. You can personalize this gift with any look or scent that matches your boyfriend's home. A nice, strong scent like Public Goods' Cedar and Suede is a great way to ease any man into the candle game. Of course, this could also be the time to open him up to all of your favorite scents as well. It's a win-win really. 

An unexpected movie subscription

Streaming is the norm nowadays. While your boyfriend likely already has subscriptions to Hulu or Netflix, the Criterion Channel could be a great add-on. According to New York Magazine, this subscription service has over 1,000 of the most beloved classic films from 1910 to today. If your boyfriend loves a good movie night, this could be the gift that keeps on giving. Not to mention that it would be totally unexpected. 

If old-school movies aren't his thing, you could easily swap out this idea for a sports subscription or HBO Max. The point is to make it a splurge-worthy, fun subscription for them to get. Think: something that they would love but not necessarily love to spend their money on. Because nothing says "I love you" like binge-watching hours of television together. 

The best part is that you get to choose how much to spend on the subscription. Maybe it's movies for an entire year or a sports subscription for just long enough for his favorite season to be on. You can give the gift any way you'd like.

A personalize skincare routine to use

Have you ever noticed you boyfriend asking you about moisturizers or casually mentioning that they'd like to use your face wash? If so, it might be time to help them establish a skincare routine. Believe it or not, plenty of men would love to have a skincare routine of their own but don't know where to start. After all, think of how incredible you feel after you do your own routine. Giving the gift of healthy skin is perfect for your boyfriend, not to mention one that will keep their skin healthy and youthful, per GQ. Really, it's the gift that keeps on giving. 

Obviously, you can personalize your boyfriend's skincare to fit his specific type of skin. The easiest, and definitely the most affordable option, is to gift him an entire starter set, which Spy advises make "great gifts." There are plenty of great ones out there for the holidays. Origins even has an entire men's set, complete with lotion, face wash, mask, and moisturizer. That way, your boyfriend can see which products that he'd like to keep in his routine. It's even got a festive name — "Men In Merry." What could be better for the holiday season? 

You're probably going to want to explain this gift to him as well, which would make for some incredible one-on-one time. Nothing like the gift of beauty to bring the two of you together. 

Accessories to game on the go

At the end of the day, there is nothing like supporting your boyfriend's hobby — even if it's one that annoys you. If your boyfriend is a gamer, then gifting him an accessory is the perfect opportunity to show him you care. There are tons of different gaming accessories out there, but the mobile game controller is a super fun one and makes a great gift (via New York Magazine). The controller snaps right onto your iPhone so your boyfriend can play on the go.
