All the commercials portray Christmas and the weeks leading up to it as a happy occasion where everyone has a smile on their face. Sure, there’s nothing quite like the holidays, but what the ads don’t show is the crazy stress that comes with gift giving.
Of course, Christmas isn’t about the presents, but even knowing that doesn’t make scouring the malls in December any less frantic.
One of the hardest people to buy for is your boyfriend. While you can make excuses for your parents already having everything and cover all your friends’ gifts with a trip to Bath & Body Works, your guy is a little tougher. Plus, you want to get him something he’ll actually love.
The trick is to think of something he wants, not something he needs. The best Christmas gifts are the things you would probably pass on for yourself – they don’t have to be logical. No, he probably doesn’t need to play more video games, but if that’s something he enjoys, then make him happy! (If a present is both practical and awesome, that’s even better!)
