# 1 Make it personal Being his girlfriend, you probably know what gets him going. A ground rule is that your gift have to be more personal than everyone elses. You can't show up with lottery ticket and wish him a happy birthday (or what's the occasion may be). If you can pinpoint something he likes (and being the only one who knows it), your gift will be meaningful and heart warming.
# 2 Surprise him Your boyfriend likes you just because you are the way you are (with all the pros and cons) and he probably expect a certain kind of gift from you based on your personality. That's when it's a good idea to do the unexpected. If you're a quiet and reserved kind of a person, buy him a ticket to a rock concert. If you're adventurous and he expects a skydiving course for a gift, get him a quiet weekend at a spa. Doing the opposite can result in a great present for boyfriends.
# 3 Include yourself in the gift If you find the right gift, it's ok to send your boyfriend of by himself to enjoy it, but the best gifts often includes you as the girlfriend too. Booking a weekend trip, a holiday or even just a hotel room for the night will give you both the opportunity to enjoy each others company. Including yourself in the gift is always a great idea as you both gets to appreciate your present.
# 4 Increase your budget If there's one occasion to raise your budget for your gift purchase, it's when you're buying a gift for your boyfriend. He will surely appreciate your effort and buy an equal (or even more expensive) gift for you the next time you celebrate something.
# 5 Don't buy what everyone else is buying When you're shopping for a gift for your boyfriend, try not to follow short lived trends thats "hot" right now. Not only the gift will be out of style in a few months, he will also get the impression that you didn't give his present much thought.
