I love the idea of putting a sweet and simple message on the inside of a custom belt. Something like “I love you” or “forever” will make a perfect sentimental Christmas gifts for boyfriend. Personally I’d steer clear of the engraving on the outside of the belt, as it may be an overkill. But to each their own!

Personalized air fresheners a cute and (potentially steamy🥵) sentimental Christmas gift ideas for boyfriend. Add a cute photo of the two of you, or spice it up with a pin-up or “beer poster” style shot of you. You can even go as far as to add a boudoir shot of you. Just be sure to keep it classy and modest enough for any passengers he may have in his vehicle, (and anyone who may walk by his vehicle!!) I LOVE the sample photo they used, it’s steamy, but not too much to adorn his vehicle.
