I hate to break it to you, but it’s getting down to the holiday shopping wire. If you’re struggling with what to get the guy in your life you’re definitely not alone. As much as I love a good challenge, it can be kinda difficult to one-up yourself year after year. I mean, how many pairs of socks does one guy actually need? (For the record he asked me not to put socks under the tree this year.)
More often than not, gift-giving ends up falling short of “I know you’ve been wanting this for a long time,” and landing somewhere around “I think you would get a lot of use out of this.” But let me tell you that there is zero shame in getting him something that he needs, and that you’ll be thankful he has later. Anything that improves his day-to-day life is ultimately going to make aspects of your relationship better, so why not use that information to your full advantage.
We already know he’ll be thanking and praising you for your incredible forethought.
