His birthday is coming up and I am stumped for ideas
We've only been seeing about a month and I'm not sure what kind of gifts are too 'relationshipfied'.
My budged is anything below £100.
Also what kind of gifts are acceptable for a friend with benefits if it's not their birthday and you just feel like making a friendly gesture?

Don't do it. I wouldn't buy any guy I'm just sexing a gift. He'd have to be boyfriend status for that to happen. Cut this guy loose. And if he's using you for easy sex, you can probably buy him whatever you want and he won't mind as long as the sex is still there and he doesn't have to commit to you.

Dance around in some lingerie ?

But on a serious note, why not just buy him something you would buy for a normal male friend.

I wouldn't buy anything, certainly not something in the tune on £100.

If you feel you have to celebrate his birthday, I'd just get him a card and a bottle of his favourite bevvy. It says 'I've bothered to get you something but im not taking it too seriously'.

Or if you're a bit more romantic, buy him something to eat.

Why not do something kinkier in the bedroom. Much much better gift and more appropriate to the relationship you are in.

Agreed.

Physical gifts are for loving relationships, which you're not in. Do something interesting/different in the bedroom. I don't know what you currently do and what he's into, but letting him do whatever he wants with your body, total domination, would be a good birthday present for some guys. I'd certainly appreciate it.

£100 on a FOB?? woah girl, slow down. just get him a card maximum... he is a sex buddy no strings attached, i mean i'm guessing you have feelings for him thanks to your willingness to buy extravagant things for him, you want him to like you. maybe you could get him something like a funny mug or something?

Yes i think something slightly comical may be appropriate so long as it doesn't seem overdone

You don't get friends with benefits presents. Get him a card, maximum, or as others have suggested, do something kinky in the bedroom.

Don't get him anything else. Especially not anything near the £100 mark.

Oh, and DO NOT buy him cute little token gifts for when you 'see something and it made me think of you' - that is definitely relationship territory.

why even make a comment like this, you don't know anything about their situation. she could be extremely happy with him and he could be the nicest guy in the world just not ready for a relationship for all you know...

Sex toys?

Seriously though, if it's just a casual relationship then you shouldn't even think about spending £100.
More like £15
