It’s the holiday season and buying gifts for the boy you love, or just like a lot, can be a bit tricky. There’s a fine line to walk between buying something too sappy and romantic any buying something so impersonal, its offensive. When shopping for your guy this holiday season, keep these tidbits in mind.

Eat It or Spend It

If you don’t know a guy very well, you can always revert back to the original mantra of manhood – you’ll know a good gift when you can eat it or spend it. Of course that limits you to gift cards and food products, but you can still have a lot of fun with these two. Bake him something special without going over the top – heart-shaped cake is out, cookies in. Put them in a bakery box and wrap them with brown paper and twine to hearken back to the olden days and share them with him. He can eat them all or share them with his buddies at lunch, but he’ll get a solid Christmas message that you care.

If you opt for gift cards, you can do a decent amount on a single gift card or you can be a bit more creative and buy small gift cards lots of places. Buy five or ten dollar gift cards at your local coffee shop, ice cream store, movie rental location and other places that you can get something for not very much. Make a gift card bouquet of fun things to do without spending an arm and a leg doing it.

Stick with What He Likes

If your guy skates, buy him something related to skating that he’s mentioned or that you’re pretty sure he would like – a new beanie or some stickers for his board. Visit a skate shop to get some suggestions. The same is true of any other hobby. New headphones or buds for the music enthusiast. New movies and movie snacks for the movie guy in your life and some sports-related accessories for the sporty man are the perfect gifts if you know your guy well enough to know what he’s into.

Useful Presents

The best presents for a guy you’re very close to are presents that you can use, preferably together, although you can be generous and get tickets he can use with his buddies as well. Movie tickets, concert tickets and sporting even tickets are all great gifts, especially if you know in advance the sorts of things that you man really enjoys. Be sure to buy tickets he’ll actually enjoy using – tickets to the Jonas Brothers aren’t going to get most guys excited, after all, even if you’re picturing how great the concert will be together.

If you afford it, opt for four tickets instead of just two. That way he has the choice to invite another couple or a group of his friends along. Some things are fun for the two of you to do, but in some cases, letting him go with his friends might be a truly special gift – a sign that you know what he likes and you want him to enjoy himself doing it.

My boyfriend loves tigers, and I've been helping him with his collection for the past year. So I got him a big orange realistic tiger that matches the big white one I got him last year. I also got him some new clothes. Defently ask them for what they want. And if they say I don't know then figure out what they collect, what they watch and listen to. So get them a cd, gift cards, and things to add to a collection of theres. Or just spend time with them.
