Apart from it being fun to be able to try a new snack every day, you can also get a little creative and add little cute, funny, or sexy notes on each one. This way, every time he picks one to try he can think of you!

Another great aspect of this product is that it is fully waterproof so they can use it in the shower. This is honestly something many gay and straight men in my circle use and it will be a gift your friend will use and enjoy for a long time.

WAITIEE Wireless Charging Station

When it comes to a wireless charging station, the WAITIEE is a great choice for many reasons. First of all, it has a stylish design that can charge 3 devices at once. Whether the gay guy you're getting it for is an iPhone or Android user, this charger can charge both.

It can have a permanent place on their nightstand and there they will be able to charge their phone, smartwatch, and AirPods. Also, it includes a sensor light that shines blue when your devices are charging and green when they are not. 

Amazon Giftcard 

If you're in a new gay relationship and you don't really know his interests well or if you have a friend who loves online shopping, getting them an Amazon gift card is a great idea. This way, they can have fun shopping online and getting themselves the gift they want. 

This can straight up save you in a time of need when you forget a birthday or some other occasion. It is also a great idea if you've just recently met through a gay chat and you don't want to go all out for a gift. Gift cards in general can make for perfect gifts and I personally choose them for gifts for people I don't happen to know too well. 

Fast Charging Portable Charger

One of the things everyone needs in our day and time is a portable charger. If your man doesn't have one, you should definitely make this life easier by getting him the MOS one.

This is a great option as he can charge 3 devices at once and still carry the power bank with him anywhere he goes.

If your gay bestie is a fan of essential oils, this is a great gift o consider getting them. Aromatherapy diffusers have many therapeutic benefits and can be used to relax after a long day along with a glass of wine. 

This set includes a diffuser as well as 10 essential oils so he can switch smells whenever he needs something different.
