    So basically seeing this guy for 6 months, 2 months serious. His birthday is tomorrow, sent his gift special delivery to arrive at the door for him to sign at t;en tomorrow.

    The only problem is i've realised my gift is ****. I got him book ends, 7 pairs of socks, and an intricate portrait of him made by me (i'm half okay at sketching). I talked to a few friends 4 of whom were guys. They gave their BF/GF of roughly the same time: barbour jacket, ferarri/spa experience, perfume, jewelry, jack wills gear etc

    I've never bought for a boy before. I was going to make him cepelinai and then go as wild as a virgin could in the bedroom but now i'm so bummed over the physical present. I just bought him stuff i woulf d have liked and not what is proper. I'm thinking of waiting outside of his flat tomorow (he has an exam) and getting the parcel back somehow. I have the reciept.

    What do to? Thanks xxx

    You got him socks? Socks? If you have any decency you will send him a resignation offer in the post.

      Make socks one part of the present and buy him some other things if you really are that concerned that what you got him isn't enough.

      Send him some vaseline, a box of Kleenex and a year's subscription of Playboy.

      Give him the socks, wait for his reaction and then give him a less :troll2: present.

      I always buy my boyfriend socks as a gift...he never buys them so I do it for him.
      You might want to buy him something else as well. Or say to him they are token gifts and you will take him out for a drink to celebrate.

      You wont be able to intercept post from outside his house postmen aren't allowed to give it to you your a random stranger wandering around outside

      Just buy him something else and say they were joke presents, why have you sent them to him? Who sends people gifts direct from the place you bought them?

      If he likes you he really won't care. He'll probably find it adorable that you sent him socks. I would

      I honestly think the presents you have sent him are so thoughtful and considerate- he'll love them!
      I mean CMON, the 7 socks (if he loses one he's always got a spare- so thoughtful of you!). And wow the book ends, so useful and basically every man's Christmas wish. And omg that intricate portrait-he is one hell of a lucky man, what I would do for an intricate portrait of myself especially by someone who isn't completely **** at drawing.

      You're stressing over nothing, he's gonna love them.


      LOL!
