    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.

    That'd be fine, if he complains he deserves a slap.

    For future reference, I've been told that you can get pop tarts in bentalls centre now (not sure if it's a well known company or whatever, but we have a huge one here xD). Otherwise if you're in London any time, they have a shop called Cybercandy which have sweet imports and sell pop tarts singly and in boxes (it's in Piccadilly Circus, or at least a 3 min walk from shaftesbury avenue).

    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 wouldn't expect anything, so a gift would be appreciated. I'd be happy just to meet up a bit if possible.

    If you're ever that worried, just ask what he wants. He'll have a few ideas of things that he'd like or could do with.

    Wow. You are a very considerate person . I hope he really appreciates what you bought. Do you know what he has bought you or is he keeping it as a surprise?

    Also yes, I'd be very happy with the presents that you've bought for your boyfriend.
