18 Christmas gifts your boyfriend didn’t know he wanted

by Ellen Bird
25th Nov 2018

Remember that episode of Friends where Rachel and Phoebe convince Chandler to help them search for Monica’s stashed Christmas presents? Striking fear into him by suggesting that she may have bought him one big present, a medium present or a bunch of little presents, and he hasn’t matched her gift-giving skills.

Let’s be honest, boyfriends are difficult to buy for. While shopping for everyone on your Christmas list is never an easy feat, searching for something extra special for your significant other is pressure on a whole other level. You want to seem like an extra caring girlfriend, opting for something original, but also buying something with a touch of romance (all without going broke). Whether your relationship status is more are-we-or-aren’t-we or he’s been your main squeeze for a while now, boyfriend gifting is hashtag hard. Stop stressing about what to get him and take a deep breath, because I’ve curated a serious list that has you covered. Happy shopping.
