Somebody has to say it: Christmas shopping for boys is the absolute worst. This is especially true when it comes to gifts for your boyfriend under $100. No one wants to break the bank! And no one wants to give a bad gift.
Of course, you don’t have to get your boyfriend — or anybody! — a gift this holiday season. But it is nice, especially if you know he’s going to be giving you one. This is why we love an “under $100” cap.
Sure, you can be lazy and just buy a neutral tie, an expensive razor or the pinnacle of boyfriend gifts, a brown leather wallet — but why? Luckily, there are so many affordable, thoughtful, fun and unique gifts for your boyfriend under $100 out there.

The year 1843 was a good one for Christmas. Dickens’s legendary festive tale, A Christmas Carol, was published and the first commercially produced Christmas card was launched. Today, an estimated one billion cards are sent each year in the UK alone. By the time December 25 comes around, mantelpieces across the country are bedecked with images of chirruping robins, snow scenes, angels and, of course, Father Christmas himself.
