The key to any man's heart? Unique ideas that revolve around beer, sports, and video games.

Birthday Gifts for Him
Etsy/Nordstrom

The time has come: The guy in your life is turning another year older (and wiser). While he'd probably be thrilled with a six-pack of his favorite craft beer or made-from-scratch cake, a hand-picked gift is truly the best way to celebrate your husband, boyfriend, dad, grandpa, or any man that you love. To help make his next year the best one yet, take a look at these creative birthday gifts for him. Regardless of who you're shopping for, these wallet-friendly birthday presents cover all the bases with picks for beer lovers, sports fans, foodies, and more. Even though there are still a few classic options (he can't say "no" to a backpack!), this list includes more unique finds that he wouldn't necessarily think to buy for himself. That's what makes a birthday gift special, isn't it?

Don't stop here: Get even more inspiration with our ultimate men's gift guide.
