Christmas is right around the corner and if you’re anything like me you like to start shopping early (Black Friday and Cyber Monday are perfect for this), but when there is a new guy in your life, you never really know what to get him and by new I am talking you have only been involved with him for about 3-6 months. You don’t want to go too big but you don’t want to come off as cheap. So what do you get the guy that you like? Men are different than women with gifts. We like thoughtfulness, gestures mean way more to us than the actual gift. This is not true for men, their first thought is the usefulness. Yes, men are just as happy as we are to know that we are thinking of them, but getting them something they can’t use 9 times out of 10 will invoke a thanks….. for NOTHING response. He won’t say it but it is all in the awkward grin.
So when getting your new guy a gift there is one golden rule and that is can he actually put it to use. Here are some good gifts that will guarantee appreciation from him and won’t break the bank for you and if all else fails anything techy will keep him pretty happy.
If your guy is a gamer an accessory or a new game for his game system is perfect. It is useful will make him feel like you really know him. It might annoy you at first considering that he will spend hours playing instead of texting you back but at least you will know your gift was a hit!
Cologne is a tricky one. I usually will not get a man cologne unless I know what kind he wears. If you decide to go out on the limb some of my personal favorites are:
Gifting at the beginning of a relationship is always the most difficult pay attention to small cues of what he likes and remember ladies the better the Christmas gift you give makes him have to go over the top for your birthday!
Until next time,
