HOW TO BUY GIFTS FOR A… BOYFRIEND

So you’ve got yourself a dashing man who thinks you’re hot stuff. Good start.  

Now comes the tricky bit - buying the gift. Been dating a couple of months and you might be unsure what your gift says about your intentions for the future... Been dating a year and you’ll have a list as long as your arm and won’t know where to stop!

Sometimes we all need a little help. So we’ve put together our top tips and price guide to help you find that perfect gift with ease...

TOP 3 TIPS BUYING FOR A BOYFRIEND:

1. START USEFUL

Men can be practical beasts so start with something he’s going to use. Think personal items like wallets, shaving tools or desk items. Focus on upgrading the things he values most - The more he interacts with your gift, the more he’ll think of your relationship and smile.

2. MIX FUN WITH GREAT DESIGN

New relationships are awesome, so don’t be overly serious. Add sweet treats, reference in-jokes or consider buying lots of small things rather than one single item (because, be honest, we all love unwrapping things). If it’s still relatively early days choose gifts with great design and it’ll keep your cool points running high.

3. BE GENEROUS... BUT APPROPRIATE

Length of relationship matters, so we’ve created a gift guide below for what might be appropriate to spend. Every person is different so feel free to go off-piste… Just don’t suggest shelling out £1,000 when you’ve only been dating two weeks. You’re not a lottery winner. (Unless you are a lottery winner in which case carry on, you lucky devil.)
