Question Christmas present question

I want to get my boyfriend a present for Christmas this year. But the problem is when ever I ask him what he wants, he just says all he needs is me, and I tell him that that's not what I meant and he says I know. But I have asked him a million times and he never said anything about it, he would always say i'm all he needs. But I want to get him something, so what could be a little gift I could buy for him that any girlfriend would get her boyfriend? Any suggestions?

I'll probably get mine something snowboarding related

Or

Get him a new sweatshirt, that way when you want to use one of his, it'll be the one you like best. Haha

WW, what does he like? If movies, may be gift card to the movie theater or the movie he likes on DVD.

I told my guy to just look at the website for the warehouse I work at (30% discount + free shipping since I can pick it up at work) XD They have TONS of random and awesome stuff (bacon flavored toothpaste!!!!!). He know my financial situation isn't amazing at the moment so he's like your boyfriend..."all I need is you", but I just tell him to pick out something even if it's the cheapest, stupidest thing he can find XD

I suggest buying him a night out with you! His favorite restaurant, then a date/movie/bowling/sporting event.

Homemade cookies in a nice tin. Something really rich, like choco chips with nuts and make them big and stuffed with goodies. Then, tape a movie pass on top for two, and a coupon for a back rub "plus", and let yourselves imagine waht the "plus" means to you.

I have been taught, by several men, that you should NEVER buy a man a wallet. Its just one of those things I guess.

Why not get him a gift based around a hobby or passion of his or something he's been wanting to do and just hasn't gotten around to it yet. Ie, my BF has always talked of getting a pilot's license, but never took the first step. So for his birthday this year, I bought him a couple flying lessons.

OR you could get something the two of you can do together, like a couple's massage at a spa.

This is what happens when you have democrats in office

Yeah, don't buy a man a wallet. It's like men trying to pick out a purse for us!

As far as what to buy him, listen to what he's saying when he's around his friends or doing something fun. You should be able to get a good idea of things he'd like based on his hobbies and interests.
