Be Sweet, Not Corny In the early stages of dating, hold off on going overboard and declaring your undying love in a gift.Resist the urge to put lots of heart decorations and "I love you" all over something you make," warns .
The best part about settling for a jewellry item, is that it lends itself wonderfully to a variety of personal touches that will symbolize your love for him.
You could have a pair of cufflinks engraved with a romantic message, or a bracelet designed with interweaving initials from both your names.
Unfortunately, all that online stores and gift shops seem to have are corny, heart-shaped novelties and endless product advertisements. Here're some tips for choosing the ideal gift for your boyfriend, that will at once cater to his likes and show how much you love him.
For the booklover If your boyfriend is the proverbial bookworm and his idea of a perfect evening is settling down with some pulp fiction, you know where to go for his gift.
If you can get hold of a book signed by his favourite author, or a particularly rare edition of a prized work, so much the better.
For the show-off A great gift idea for all those men who like to be in the limelight, is jewellery.Multi-purpose tool kits include screwdrivers, knives, scissors, a bottle opener and all that a man with nimble fingers would love to make use of.To top it all, they are comfortably large to be engraved with a romantic message from you.You don't get a second chance to make a first impression, and neither does the first gift you give a significant other.Whether it's a birthday, anniversary, holiday, or just-because gift, present-picking can feel like pop quiz on your partner.Write a short, romantic message, and if you wish, also include a picture of you two together.
