Choosing the Perfect Christmas Present on a Budget
You don't have to spend an extravagant amount of money on your boyfriend's Christmas present to show how much he means to you. It is possible to find a thoughtful gift that he'll love and won't make you go into debt.

Non-tangible gifts like spending a romantic evening together and cooking him one of his favorite meals shows how much you care, and he'll most likely appreciate it as much as he would a wrapped gift.

I don't know what to get for my boyfriend on Christmas?
Me and my boyfriend have been dating for a year and 3 months now, and I mean, I know what he likes and all but I just don't know what do get him. He told me he wants like video games and stuff, but I know NOTHING about that so yeah, help please!
If your boyfriend is into video games, find out which consoles he owns and what types of games he likes to play. Look at the games he currently has so you don't buy any duplicates, and take note if he ever mentions a specific one that he wants. He might also need accessories such as a new controller, headphones or a case for a portable system. Once you know what he's into or what he wants, do some research to find the perfect gift.
How do I find something practical but quirky for my boyfriend?
My boyfriend doesn't like reading, he doesn't cook, he already has the electronics he could ask for, and he is a very practical person. I can't decide what to give him that I already haven't bought for him! He loves Victory Motorcycles, but I have given him shirts and gloves and jackets. He loves Batman, but we have every movie in a collectors edition set and I have gotten him a piggy bank and pajama set with batman logos all over it. I get him what he needs throughout the year as little surprises. Especially for his birthday. I ask him all the time about what he needs and what he wants, and we usually just go buy it. This year for Christmas I am hoping to get something that really hits home for hi. He isn't easily excitable but my goal is to get him excited.
