You love him, so the pressure is on! You want any present you bestow to be just right. Whether you’re searching for his big present for the year or one of a bunch of small tokens, you want to choose a holiday gift that tells him how much you feel and shows that you understand him. The gift should also be something that will be used with loving thoughts. So do a little character analysis: What is his romantic style? What are his interests? Is he quiet or loquacious? Does he enjoy romancing you, or is he less apt to be expressive about his emotions? Is he into clothing (evidence: he has a subscription to GQ), or is he happy to have you pick things out for him, because shopping is the last thing in the world that he wants to do? If you can read his character correctly, the greater the chances for the gift to be a success. You’ll know this by the fact that he uses it. Let’s say your fellow is already a romancer. Congratulations! You don’t need to cultivate that quality. However, if he is more reserved and you would like to bring out the cavalier in him, these romantic gifts might do the trick. Read on, for a curated selection of gifts that say “love”—hopefully in a language that speaks to him. And when that loving gift is returned to you, you will know in your heart why it is better to give than to receive.
