It’s always been a struggle, and all of womankind faces it. Thinking of gifting anything to your boyfriend is a case of a brain freeze! Either he has already got what you have just thought of gifting him or he has been too polite to refuse a gift that he really does not need. Finding gifts for a boyfriend can be one of the several Herculean tasks a woman will encounter many a times in her life. Men generally are more utilitarian in their views,which really does not mean that they do not like the idea of getting pampered or indulgences. They do! The point really is in understanding what is indulgence to them is diametrically opposed to the idea that women have.
Sentimental, useful, novel, and with an eye on what makes him happy, these characteristics are all that matter. So why not explore some possibilities that combine his love for several such things that are close to his heart and place some great memories alongside or on them. Why not make photo gifts for him that will remind him of your love in no small measure?
Creating your very own customized gifts with photos that you know he holds dear will of course be the most important ingredient in this project as will the fact of your involvement in getting just the photos he would love to see over and over again. That personal concern and your involvement makes it more precious.
Here are a few things that might help you along the way:
- By now, you would know what kind of photos your guy likes – natural poses, from his childhood, or that of sceneries. Go on. Do some snooping around if that is what it needs.
- Focus on some of his favorite pastimes –does he watch football, maybe baseball, or cricket?
- Does he have a secret desire –to meet a celebrity or some wild plans of the kind(they all have some such weakness: use that also to trigger an idea)
- Is he agizmo gadget guy or more into cars –there are several things that could trigger an idea and you just need to know your man well enough.
- Know his bucket list of must dos or must haves and that should give you plenty of things to focus on.
- His work environment too will allow you an insight into thing she could need for his long hours at work.
