Let’s face it, most guys aren’t the best at decorating. Some guys don’t have an eye for interior design and others just don’t care about how their place looks.
But a lot of men don’t realize that their environment has a huge impact on their subconscious. The atmosphere of their space, which can be altered by the things in it, can affect how they feel and how they act. The more time they spend at home the more important it is for them to have a nice comfortable living space.
Maybe your boyfriend has just moved into a new place, or he’s been there for a while but hasn’t done much to make it look stylish and homey.
You want your boyfriend’s place to look put together and work for him (and for you, if you’re going to be spending a lot of time there!). He might not know it yet, but in the end your boyfriend will really appreciate you helping him make his home look and feel great.
Here are the best home decor gifts for your guy!
1. Canvas Painting
A canvas painting is a great way to add a pop of color to a room.
If your boyfriend’s space is lacking in personality, a canvas is a great way to create a better atmosphere.
A painting also looks a lot more fancy than a print because it’s 3D, unique, and tactile.
This contemporary abstract cityscape would look amazing anywhere in his apartment and has just the right amount of color.
2. Tripod Floor Lamp
Three legged mid-century style floor lamps are super popular at the moment.
At nearly five feet tall they definitely make a statement, which is great if most of the other furniture in the room is plain or not very interesting.
Even if your boyfriend prefers to play it safe, he’ll like this lamp because it’s also super functional.
Unlike ceiling lights, floor lamps are very good at creating a relaxed and cozy atmosphere, perfect for reading a book when you want to wind down for the evening.
3. Coffee table
Coffee tables help to make a living room feel like a proper adult space.
This coffee table has an iron mesh shelf that makes it look industrial and super unique.
It would make the perfect home decor gift for your boyfriend because it’s simple enough for most guys’ taste but would also add a lot of character to the room.
It’s also great value for a coffee table and has amazing reviews on Amazon!
4. Quilt Bedspread Set
Adding a bedspread makes a room look a lot more put together. It’s also ideal for hiding wrinkled sheets and an unmade bed!
This textured bedspread set comes in all different sizes and colors. The black, grey, or navy would be perfect for a guy’s room!
5. Office Chair
A stylish office chair is a great gift for a guy, especially if he works from home.
Guys tend to forget that functional things can look good too. You’ll be doing him a huge favor by getting him a chair that’s comfortable but will also add to his home’s aesthetic.
This sleek adjustable office chair is just the right size for a home office.
6. Glass Wall Calendar
If your boyfriend is the super organized task-driven type he’ll love this glass wall calendar. It’s so much nicer than a regular paper wall calendar or a desk calendar.
He can plan out his entire month and add notes or a daily to do list on the side. Because it’s made from glass, he’ll be able to write and erase as many times as he likes.
This wall calendar looks really fancy and is such a unique home decor gift.
7. Industrial Table Lamp
An industrial style table lamp is the perfect gift for your boyfriend if he works from home.
He might work from home all the time or just while working on his side hustle in the evenings. Either way, having good lighting is important for focus and productivity.
This table lamp from Amazon is simple and stylish but even has a USB port for convenient charging of his phone at his desk!
8. Whiskey Glasses
If your boyfriend is into whiskey he’s going to love this BenShot bulletproof rocks glass. Honestly, even if he doesn’t like whiskey he’ll still probably be obsessed with this glass.
Water glasses are pretty much a necessity but that doesn’t mean they have to be boring. Why not get him a gift of a water glass that he can also leave out on the table or counter as home decor!
Each glass is handmade in the US by a father and son team. They are such unique glasses and are sure to be the talking point whenever he has friends over!
9. Fleece Throw Blanket
People never think to get guys blankets but if your boyfriend lives somewhere it gets cold, or he just likes being cozy, he’s guaranteed to love this gift.
A fleece throw blanket isn’t the most stylish thing in the entire world but if you show him how to properly drape it on the sofa when he’s not using it, it will definitely make his living room look less bare and more welcoming.
10. Apple Charging Station
If your boyfriend likes gadgets he’ll love this Apple charging station. It will allow him to charge his iPhone, AirPods, Apple Watch, and even Apple Pencil, if he has one, all from the same dock.
While it’s not really home decor, having an all-in-one charging station means that there will be a lot less charging cables lying around, keeping his place looking neat and tidy.
It will also make it super easy for him to find everything in the morning when he’s rushing out of the house!
11. Full Length Mirror
Mirrors are such under-utilized home decor items. Mirrors instantly make a space look bigger, and if positioned correctly, can bring a ton more light into a room.
The bigger the mirror the better but even small mirrors can make a difference to how a room feels.
If your boyfriend’s living space is small, a mirror would make an amazing home decor gift for him.
Consider getting him a free-standing floor mirror or one that can be leaned against a wall so that he doesn’t have to put holes in his rented place and risk losing his deposit.
12. Faux Cowhide Rug
A faux cowhide rug is a really trendy option for any man’s place.
It would be perfect for in the bedroom beside the bed or in the living room under a coffee table. Rugs add a ton of warmth and texture to a room.
Having a rug to put underneath the bed would be great for your boyfriend if he has wooden floors to make his room feel more homey and comfortable.
If your boyfriend is a shoes-off inside kind of guy, he’ll definitely appreciate a home decor gift that keeps his feet warm!
13. Throw Pillows
A lot of guys would never buy throw pillows.
So why would you get them throw pillows as a gift?
Well, sometimes the best gifts are things people wouldn’t buy for themselves!
Guys don’t seem to get that adding small touches of color and texture to a room makes such a big difference.
Throw pillows, like the ones above, are definitely not girly and will make your boyfriend’s couch look a lot more welcoming.
14. Classic Dart Board
A dart board is a great thing to have around when you invite people over, whether it be for drinks, a party, or just a chill game night!
Playing darts is super fun and guys love getting a bit competitive with each other over a game.
This classic dart board will add a bit of class to your boyfriend’s man cave. It would make a perfect home decor gift for any guy.
15. Rustic Shelves
Shelves are a great home decor gift for a guy because they are super practical.
Having shelves in his place will allow him to display his most prized possessions that otherwise might just be stuffed into a drawer or cluttering his desk.
He’ll also feel super manly and accomplished after he spends hours trying to level them and put them up!
These shelves from Amazon are simple but unique and can be hung in one of two ways. They would look great in your boyfriend’s bedroom or living room!
16. Wooden Alarm Clock
A stylish alarm clock is a super practical gift for your boyfriend that doubles as home decor.
A lot of people use their phone as an alarm but if your boyfriend wants to be more productive in the morning using an alarm clock will stop him from wasting time scrolling on his phone when he wakes up.
This wooden digital alarm clock from Amazon is really unique. If your boyfriend’s style is more minimal, it would make a great decoration for his bedroom.
17. Wall Tapestry
It’s likely that your boyfriend has at least a few bare walls in his room.
A super easy way to add decor to a large bare wall is to hang a wall tapestry.
Wall tapestries are great because they are light and easy to hang, you can usually get away with using command strips rather than drilling holes into the wall.
A cool wall tapestry like this one would make a great gift for your boyfriend.
It will add some style and personality to his room, overall making it look more welcoming, a huge bonus for when you’re staying over!
18. Bottle Opener
Guys love cool things. If your boyfriend isn’t into home decor, buy him an interesting gift that has a purpose but will look good in his place too.
This handcrafted bottle opened with a cap catcher can be mounted on a wall or set on a counter.
You can also get your boyfriend’s name engraved on it, making it an extra-special gift. He’s going to love showing it off to his friends!
19. Simple Frame
This simple black wood frame is perfect for displaying a diploma or certificate.
A lot of guys aren’t super interested in paintings or wall art.
This is a great gift that will add some interest to a bare wall while allowing your boyfriend to proudly display his achievments.
Having a set of matching coasters will make anyone look like they have their life together!
Coasters keep drinks from leaving watermarks and stains on surfaces and they make great house warming gifts.
These coasters from Amazon would be perfect for your boyfriend. The raw cork material with the black metal holder gives them a distinct masculine feel that any guy would love.
