I've been seeing someone for a month or so, and it's going really well. I have anxiety regarding boyfriends and gifts because of my ex who had massively ridiculously grandiose expectations of what he should receive on Christmas and birthdays.
Anyway, I know he's got me something because he's told me, but I literally don't have a clue what to get him! We get on like a house on fire, but I don't feel I know him well enough to pick out a thoughtful and meaningful gift. I don't even know what size clothes he wears or anything. And I don't want to buy him any old tat just for the sake of it. He said he doesn't want or expect anything but I'm going to feel bad if he gives me a gift and I haven't got anything to give him back. Help!
It is really lovely and exciting. We met at party 7 years ago and recently became reacquainted. We never seem to run out of things to say to each other, our record on the phone is 6.5 hours! He's great.
All sorted! Was going to get him theatre tickets, and had found a show in a city that would work perfectly for both of us to get to, in early Jan, on a day I know we can both do. Sorted childcare and Was about to book then realised at the last minute that dates were in Jan 2018, not 2017 . Narrowly avoided a massive fuck up there.
I know what he's got me now, because the thing he originally wanted to get also fucked up so he was at a loss. So I helpfully told him I would really like a babyliss big hair, which makes life easier because I know what he's spending on me. Then had a brainwave this morning and remembered he said he wanted to get a wireless printer so he could print from his iPad, so that's what I've got him. It was about the same price as the babyliss thing. Might get him some wine and choccies too.
