WTF Do I Get My Boyfriend? [Gift Guide]


Shopping for dudes can be hard because the media tells us they only like tech-y/video game-y stuff which is mad crazy expensive and still very subjective. You can’t really get a guy a stationary set or blouse because you saw it and thought of them. (Although, I wouldn’t really want a guy picking those things out for me either.) Generally, I wouldn’t get a guy (or anyone but a best friend) clothing because you’ll usually end up buying something that pulls the person out of their fashion comfort zone. Television and video games are hard too because guys usually buy those things for themselves or have already seen them. How do you give someone a gift that they will actually like without reducing them to a cultural stereotype(geek/hipster/bookworm)? That’s why I am here. Duh.
