Holiday Gift Giving for the Man in Your Life
Handsome Honey has changed that. We've been seeing each other just over a month, and not getting him something just doesn't feel right.
Nearly two weeks ago, HH surprised me with a very cute pair of nice heels. Not stripper heels, not ugly shoes, but fly heels that I know I'll rock. He has great taste! I'm not sure if the shoes are my Christmas gift, or if something else is coming, but either way, I know he deserves a good gift.
Thus the search began in my mind for the right Christmas gift. What could I get him without doing too much, given that we haven't been seeing each other that long? I wanted my gift to be thoughtful, but not overdone. And I didn't want to get him something useless, since he seems to have everything he might want/need already.
So I settled on two things: a bottle of his favorite cologne and a giftcard from Home Depot. Why? Because HH is in the midst of a major home renovation, so a giftcard to a home improvement store is something I know he'll appreciate and will put to good use.
It feels good to actually want to buy a guy a gift. And knowing it's something he'll enjoy is a bonus.
TALK BACK: What are you getting for Christmas for the man in your life? How did you settle on that gift?
