Valentine’s day is coming up. So, once again it’s time to think about gifts for your boyfriend. While I’ve never had an issue with it, I know a lot of women, who get completely stuck when it comes to valentine’s day or anniversaries. If you’re one of those, then this post is just for you! Here’s a little guide to getting him a gift he’ll love.
A Picnic – The Wonderful Experience
As your boyfriend’s partner, you obviously want to occupy a unique place in his life. You should be a better friend than any of his drinking buddies and one of the two women in his life that he can tell anything to. Perhaps, you’d like your gift to be especially unique as well. If you want something, which will stand out among the other valentines’ gifts you’ve got each other over the years, then get him an experience rather than an object. People think that romantic candle-lit dinners go further with women. But, I have my suspicions about that. If the weather’s right for it, a picnic in one of your favourite spots would also be a lovely idea. You could top this off with some high-quality beer and a book he’d like, of course. Perhaps, there’s something specific, which your man has always wanted to do. There are many companies, which offer unique experiences as gifts. Check out these driving days, for instance.
A Conventional Gift
If you know your boyfriend would be perfectly happy with a more conventional gift, then your job is a lot easier! Look at these gifts for him at Cuckooland for some inspiration. A good rule of thumb is to keep his personality, interests and hobbies in mind. This is where, all his friends can come in handy. If your boyfriend needs a certain piece of gear for a hobby, then he’ll probably have been moaning about wanting it to his buddies. The only precaution here is not to buy it too soon, and make sure he doesn’t get the same thing for himself. It might be worth setting up an agreed alarm for this with his closest friend.
Mistakes to Avoid
Like with buying anything, there are certain mistakes, which you need to avoid. I don’t care if it’s valentines, stay away from cute stuffs. This is a big no-no for pretty much any man. Even the most sensitive men have to grit their teeth, when they see cuddly toys and flowers. You shouldn’t try to fuse both your interests in your gifts either, no matter how little you two have in common. It’s his day. So, put him in the driver’s seat. Your gift should also reflect the length of the relationship. That may sound like an obvious rule. But, a lot of women neglect it. Don’t give him too little after too long or too much after your first few months.
Buying for a man can sometimes feel like solving a maze, but keep at it. There are all kinds of great ideas beside these. Remember that you know him better than anyone and the perfect gift may be staring you in the face.
