The Secret to Buying Your Girlfriend a Gift for Christmas
Guys, are you having a hard time thinking of a creative gift for Christmas that will tell your girlfriend that you listen, but not go overboard?
Christmas presents are a big relationship step. If the relationship is fairly new, if it’s your first Christmas as a couple, a lot of pressure can be put on the man to come up with a creative gift, one that will knock her socks off. It doesn’t have to be that hard though!
Follow these tips and you can find a great present for your girlfriend no matter what stage you’re in.
Does she love one particular thing? Is there a hobby she has? If so, your present buying quest is a no brainer. There’s probably something very specific that she won’t buy herself that you can get for her.
Women will drop small hints from time to time to make it easier for you. We KNOW most men have trouble knowing what to get for Christmas. Subtle hints may be your clue.
3. Simply ask
Direct questions work well to get answers you want. But, if your girlfriend is like me and wants to be surprised, she will expect you to have listened and will say “surprise me!”
4. Give the gift of a massage
Women love these!
5. But don’t give any other kinds of gift cards
I hate knowing how much someone has spent on a Christmas gift. Not sure why this is my hangup, but pretty sure other people have the same hangup. Plus, a gift card shows you didn’t put forth any effort. Women want to know you’ve put forth some effort.
6. Cook for her
Some girls don’t like gifts at all! A little attention is sometimes the best present.
7. Be Creative
If neither of you have a lot of money, be creative! There are so many ways to give a wonderful Christmas gift without spending a ton of cash. Even if one makes a higher income than the other, make sure you’re not overstepping with a gift and making the other person who makes less money feel bad for not being able to provide a very nice Christmas gift.
8. Give the Gift of Time
Sometimes the gift of time is the best present you can give. My boyfriend and I are people who buy what we want when we want it. We are both fairly simple people who don’t want for too much anyway, so it is very hard to find a gift idea, although I must say I got him a very cool gift? If I do say so myself! However, all I really want is more time with him, because we are both SO busy, work a lot, and I miss him terribly when we are not together.
Guys, good luck with Christmas! I’m sure you’ll find a great present for that girl you care about!
