    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!

    For a boyfriend of only 5 months I think thats more than enough and if they are things he'll like you can't really go wrong.
    If he doesn't manage to match your gift and he buys you something like some flowers he's gona feel baaaddd. aha

    T-shirt, yep tis fine as long as it's what I'd like obviously.

    Book is fine

    DVD..I don't really buy them much tbh and don't like to re-watch things much especially series, so personally only if it was something I hadn't seen before they thought I'd like.

    Poptarts, it's an individual thing but the idea of a foodstuff I like (say sweets) which aren't readily available is good.

    Venus fly trap is good, although truth be told good luck to him if he manages to get it to grow, they're generally provided with totally unsuitable soil and the seeds can be dead as is.

    colognes is fine.

    £45 seems fine haha, though it's not so much about the cost, more about how personal the presents are in my opinion.

    You can't go wrong with thoughtful presents. I love receiving a present and knowing the person has actually thought about it/bought you something they know you'll like, as opposed to like a random bath set. I mean there's obviously nothing wrong with that either, but it's always nice to know the person has thought about it.

    Yeah I just kept 2 presents from christmas :p:
    What have you already bought her?
    An iPad.

    Didn't buy it though, I received it as a door prize at a company function I attended. Just recycling a gift

    She is under the impression she is getting a £30 frying pan though, because I put that iPad into a box meant for a frying pan

    But I know she has always wanted an iPad

    So you haven't actually spent anything? Are you going to tell her you won it?
    What about some chocolates for her birthday?

    I spent £30 to get that frying pan which she thinks is all she is getting Yes I will tell her it was a prize. I have also put in an iTunes gift card in it so she can help herself to all the apps she wishes.

    Anyway I did get her another gift for her birthday, got her nice case for that iPad
