This December… the city will light up. Festive cheers will envelop the nation.
Screams of joy will be omnipresent.
But somewhere, in a dark secluded house, a particular demographic will be suffering in shock.
They are called the boyfriends.
As their girlfriends wait for them to open the prepared Christmas present, the boyfriends take a deep breath. Because deep down, they already know what it’s gonna be.
The dreaded gift for men: a cooking manual filled with expletives, published by the elusive Morgan Ramsay.
However, because they love you girls so much, they’ll pretend to look happy. You’ll hug, brush each other’s hair and go to sleep happy-happy.
But guess what? That piece of crap isn’t what they want.
No boyfriend wants a freaking couple bracelet for Christmas! No boyfriend wants a makeup set!
They want something cool. Something amazing.
1. The Hottest Computer Games On The Market
If your boyfriend is a gamer and hasn’t bought the latest game yet, THIS is the key to opening his heart.
Granted, you’ll lose all contact with him for a couple of months after that, but his look of joy upon receiving the gift will be brighter than the Christmas lights.
Very adventurous boyfriend? Get him FPS. A bobo shooter? It’s okay, get him strategy games instead. Can’t wait for him to break up with you? Get him a Jap dating sim.
So on and so forth. P/S: We’re kidding about the last one. Totally kidding.
2. The Latest Smartphone
Confucius once said: “If you want your boyfriend to reply to your messages on time, get him the latest smartphone.”
Although the dude’s my rival, I gotta agree with him. For once.
No guy is going to want to reply with his dusty old phone. Oh hell no.
However, a hi-tech phone, built in with all kinds of indescribable features, is a different case. He will be more than HAPPY to reply to you should that happen.
So you know what to do this Christmas, ladies. 😉
Note: No promises that it will last longer than three days.
3. JBL Flip 3 Black
To me, music should be streamed through headphones.
Audio, however, is a whole other ball game.
Imagine watching a movie with your significant other, and the both of you have headphones going on. Kinda ruins the experience, doesn’t it?
Your boyfriend has just the thing in mind, but he hadn’t gotten around to getting it yet.
But YOU can get it for him, as a Christmas present.
Introducing the JBL Flip 3 Black Bluetooth speaker.
This baby comes with wireless Bluetooth Streaming, 3000mAH rechargeable battery, a Speakerphone, Voice Assistant Integration (access Siri or Google Now), JBL Bass Radiator and Lifestyle material.
Oh, and did I mention that it’s splash-proof?
And don’t say we bojio, this awesome Bluetooth speaker is going at $99.00 (U.P. $199.00) here with FREE Yurbuds, so you can’t afford to miss it.
4. A Watch
Every man needs a watch to tell the time.
So if your boyfriend’s watch has become a simple fashion accessory, it might be time for you to get him a new one.
It doesn’t even have to be an expensive one. A few hundred bucks should totally do the trick.
After all, it’s the thought that counts.
And he will love you forever and ever and ever too (until he changes his watch anyway).
Totally value for money.
Cheap la sial.
5. A ‘Do whatever I want’ one-day pass
At the risk of sounding real sexist here, I just want to say that in general, men tend to be the bigger people. Not the size; rather, it’s the tolerance and acceptance levels.
So well, men might want a day off for a hard-earned breather. And what better than an all-exclusive ‘Do whatever I want’ one-day pass to tide us over the year?
Your boyfriend doesn’t want you to put on make-up for an hour and a half? Alright, it’s his day.
Your boyfriend wants to play basketball with his homies? Alright, for the pass.
Your boyfriend wants to run around the streets naked? Heh, interesting.
Your boyfriend doesn’t want you to nag him for just one day in his life? Hmm… hard decision, but you give in.
Who knows? The day might get so wild that even your darkest, most secretive ’50 Shades of Grey’ fantasies will be fulfilled.
6. JBL C100SI
While real men definitely prefer headphones, classy men might go for their more subtle and distinguished counterparts.
And I can’t think of anything better than the JBL C100SI to really bring out that extravagant, classy feel.
Have you ever seen such a sweet pair of earphones before?
Oh, you did? You must’ve seen this one.
Trust me, your boyfriend will love it.
Oh, and for those of you looking to get one of these babies for yourself, wait for a bit.
We’ve heard from our sources that this earpiece will be going at a crazy price.
How crazy? Below $10. Just keep a lookout on the JBL official store on Lazada on 12.12.
That or just search ‘JBL’ on Lazada and you’ll get to their official store.
7. An honest to goodness book
Before you lament, “Who reads books nowadays?”, let me just warn you that readers are a voracious bunch and they will devour any literary device. Yes, that includes ancient books.
And seeing how boyfriends are a complicated bunch, there are bound to be an odd few who prefer books over gaming consoles.
So if your boyfriend falls into that pleasing category, why not contemplate getting a book for him?
He will be so engrossed in it that he will ignore you for the rest of the night, but it’ll be worth it.
For starters, how about one of Stephen King’s books?
It’s a real positive one to end off a lovely Christmas night, don’t you think?
8. Beach Party Passes
Want to get him all hot and bothered? Get him passes to a party. Make sure you’re there as well lah, of course.
Then wear that smoky makeup and sexy, black dress a few sizes too small for you, and you’re all good to go.
But there’s a slight variation.
There will be quite a lot of extra stuff like:
Booze, bodies, music, bodies, money and more bodies.
In other words, everything your mum would totally want you and your boyfriend to experience.
Not sure whether you’re okay with it though.
But if you do, you know the drill.
Early Christmas present, anyone?
9. Gym membership pass
With fitness being all the rage nowadays, every guy’s bound to want to jump on the gym bandwagon.
HOWEVER, not every guy dares to take the first step.
But you, YOU, can make a difference.
Get him a gym membership pass as his Christmas present, and he’ll have an all-exclusive excuse to give.
“My girlfriend forced me to go gym ah, so bo bian lo.”
Who knows; by this time next year, he might just be gifting you a present on his 30-inch bicep.
10. JBL E40BT Black
Real men don’t listen to music via speakers.
They listen through headphones.
And what better than the macho-looking JBL E40BT Black model to really blast that ‘Baby’ song?
Boasting JBL’s signature sound, PureBass performance and wireless connectivity with a music sharing feature, this beast will morph Rebecca Black’s ‘Friday’ into Celine Dion’s ‘My Heart Will Go On’.
To make things even better? JBL has an upcoming promotion which allows you to purchase the headphones at only $99.00 (U.P. $169.00)!
Ladies, you know what to get, don’t you?
Incidentally, if you’re interested in purchasing the JBL sound devices, you can simply head on down to their official store on Lazada!
You know what to do.
It’s time to make your boyfriend a happy man this Christmas!
And don’t say bojio. JBL is holding a huge, massive (yes, ladies, all the words you want to hear when it comes to a certain activity) sale this coming 11.11 and 12.12.
For every JBL product you buy from the official JBL store (excluding the JBL Flip 3, C100SI and E40BT Black), you get 15% OFF your total.
Just use the promo code ‘RJBL15’ at checkout and you’ll get to enjoy the discount. Awesome, no?
