    I'd be quite dissapointed, looks like gimmicky stuff you've just picked up whilst frantically shopping at the last minute at tesco or something.

    I'd get him something I actually thought about for more than two minutes that actually means something, or at least something more unusual or interesting.

    Just want some feedback, Christmas presents for my boyfriend of 5 months.

    • T shirt
    • Book on something he likes
    • DVD he likes
    • Poptarts he loves but can't buy in the shops, have to be ordered online
    • Grow-your-own venus fly trap (I know he'll like that)
    • Little set of colognes


    I know I'm probably fussing over nothing but is this a reasonable present?
    Or should I get something more? ARRRGHHH!
    Basically asking if you guys were him, would you be satisfied with that present or feel a bit miffed?
    (I know you don't know him/what he likes but just in general)

    Spent about £45 altogether. Cheers in advance!

    Haha funny that's pretty similar to the stuff I bought for my boyfriend this time last year, adding some xbox games he'd picked out and I put it all in a bowl along with some microwave popcorn (we'd only been going out 5 months at the time) and he loved it

    This year he's only getting a watch that he picked himself. :whip:
    But that's because we're skint students

    Sounds pretty cool apart from the grow your own venus fly trap. I followed the frickin instructions for around 6 months and it didn't grown at all. I got another one and that didn't grow at all either.

    Sounds good I got my boyf a £1 xbox game and a box of candy canes, as we settled on a £2 limit this year. It's a relief to not have to stress over it this year!

    You're making me feel bad now, OP! I spent £50 on my boyfriend of 2 and a half years..!
    And to kind of answer your question, I'd feel pretty miffed if my boyfriend didn't appreciate that! :P
    ...I've spent £5 on my husband (together for 11 years) - on a pair of Simpsons slippers. And he better be grateful!
