My Boyfriend does not exactly like gifts, he would rather do all the buying. Any ideas what kind of gifts guys like this can appreciate?
mmmm I think he just doesnt like your gift not because he dislike the gift itself.. but I believe he is trying to be more responsible for you... if it were so.. then you are lucky woman to have hims such a wonderful man.
Tickets to a sporting event or tickets to a concert you both can enjoy.
After all these helpful posts, it seems like your BF is the one who's in control. Questions about gift-giving are only the surface...what about the rest of your life?
Men, do appreciate functional gifts, like
Do remember, it is better to give than to receive!
Hey, His favorite alcohol or a resturant gift card. If you are giving a gift you should already know what he likes.... maybe he'll share!! LOL
Men like sex and food my friend.Get him some delicious food,and he will appreciate it.It's a done deal if you dress up sexy and you become his gift. Peace!!
It is a wise person who shuns the material world
I resemble your friend and can only suggest what I would appreciate. Find out where he likes to shop and what he would buy for himself if he could get what he wanted. Try not to be too blatant so he doesn't see your motive.
I am particular about what I wear or want for my home so it can be embarrassing to receive something not to my taste and be stuck pretending to appreciate the gesture. I have made it clear that while my tastes aren't more expensive or refined they are simply different at times. Colors, patterns, styles are personal and need to be considered before making a purchase for another.
I always ask myself - Would she buy this for herself ? I try not to purchase things that I would like my girl to have but that she would like herself...Hope it helps but am not sure it will..of course, they say you can't go wrong with cash ...LOL
What kind of budget are you looking at?
Rather than buying him something it might be better to take him somewhere!
"Rather than buying him something it might be better to take him somewhere!"
To heaven and back, in my humble opinion.
I like the bottle of wine idea, though from my experience most guys enjoy a 6 pack of their favorite micro-brew more than a bottle of wine
I've spent the last 6 years desperately trying to find gifts that my husband would like let alone love. He never does, and never fails to tell me how crap they are. Now, it may be that I'm just rubbish at buying gifts or (as I increasingly suspect,) my husband is just a control freak and an un-appreciative sod. Only time will tell whether your fella is a similar gift nightmare. I just make him buy his own presents and now insist on buying my own after the birthday he gave me War Hammer figures, (his own personal hobby.)
He sounds like a jerk , I'm sorry, but seriously, he does
Omg unless ur buying him absolute crap I think the control thing is right... Unless the man has no idea how to say thank u or perhaps recieving gifts makes him feel like he isn't worthy or some other weird underlying problem... If it's not that tho then he sounds like a bit of a pig... Sorry...,
It's ok, I like pigs I think my beloved is mildly autistic. I believe this to be the case because he is a lovely bloke in every respect apart from his inability to ever be pleased by anything that hasn't originated in his own head. Don't worry, I am learning to make him think things are his idea. If he wasn't so clever and talented, I would have booted him into touch years ago but he's worth the effort. Except for the gift thing. I have just learnt not to mind and not to buy him anything.
I love gifts so if he doesn't like what you're giving him then my Address is:
I really don't like gifts. I always tell family not to bother at Christmas or my birthday, but they never listen. I have a house full of stuff I don't want or need, so anything bought as a present for me only has to be stored somewhere in an already cluttered house. If someone insists on buying me something, I always prefer having a meal at my favourite bar as a gift. I do like buying for other people though.
I think the best idea is to take him out or to talk to him about to see whatbhe wants
Yes they do appreciate gifts specially when it comes to their love ones. Guys mostly are not into stuffs they always wants to be more practical and simple. Give him more customize things example like love letters or cards and put some dedications to make it more sincere.
Must be good if you give him an unconditional love guys always wants to be pampered emotionally.
All kinds of things ... money, clothes (size S, low fitting jeans 29 or 30 waist / 34 inside leg), underwear (designer trunks and tank-tops, size 4 or S), eau de toilette (The One by Dolce & Gabanna), iPhones, netbooks (don't like iPads, although I won't say no), vacations in exotitic locations ... Hope that helps for starters ...
Underwear (designer trunks and tank-tops, size 4 or S), eau de toilette (The One by Dolce & Gabanna), but no socks please.
nice , but I would get the tight designer trunks and yeah - socks stink
It depends on his interests. If you could figure out what he plans on buying and buy it for him, then he may not mind.
Personally, I don't like trinkets, unless someone made it. He may be a person that doesn't like them either.
Maybe instead you both could go somewhere together, like a day trip, if he likes those types of things.
Worse comes to worse, buy him a gift card and write a thoughtful card to give along with it.
I have always preferred affection over gifts, but i am always great full for them, no matter what they are

What do you say when you appreciate someone or something??We often hear that a positive attitude makes a difference.When a person is grateful, they make the choice to see the positive in a situation. How do your words when you need to be grateful ???

Hi allSo I had a lot to say on this hub and it came in at just around 6,000 words. I'm not sure whether it might be worth splitting up into three parts or something to make it a little more accessible? It's just a topic I happen to be passionate about!!!Also, I know my titles are not really search...

Hello everyone. Could all of you please read all of my hubs and tell me if you like them or not? Then, could you share my hubs with everybody you know? Maybe you could just do a mass email of all your contacts. Then, could you ask all of your contacts to do the same? I would...
