Remember O Henry's heartwarming tale of two lovers, who sold of their most precious belongings to buy their beloved a gift? Yes, we're talking about The Gift of the Magi. The very first line itself brings a tear to my eye. "One dollar and eighty-seven cents. That was all. And sixty cents of it was in pennies..."
This was Della's monetary cark even when she knew what she wanted for her husband James, for Christmas. But in most cases, what girls generally face is a dilemma, regarding what to give rather than money when it comes to choosing Christmas presents for boyfriend.
Everything available in the market is either cliched with nothing unique about them or so commercialized, that they look superficial and lack warmth. So, keeping these problems in mind, we shall attempt to give you ideas, which may not be thought of for the first time, but will be unique in the sense that your guy shall be able to connect emotionally to it.
Romantic Christmas Presents for Him
Where's the twist? Just engrave a personal message on the inner rim of the ring like 'My Soulmate' or 'Lover's Forever' or simply the two of yours name. Very suave and at the same time very personal. Besides, if your guy is the reserved types, trust me he will appreciate that the message is only his and away from the prying eyes of other people.
A proverb stating "One of the nice things about Christmas is that you can make people forget the past with a 'present'." True may be, if you are trying to mend damaged relationships, but for those who have been dating a guy for many years, Christmas is the best time to relish good old times.
For instance, You can dig out that old photograph that was clicked on your very first Christmas together, frame it in a nice and warm wooden frame (wood somehow emanates warmth for me) and place it on his bedside table before he wakes up in the morning. Of course, you can get his sibling to do it for you in case both of you aren't living in.
Nowadays, you can even get the two of your names engraved on the frames. Even though they do not show it so openly, old memories do kindle that loving passion in men, which you will get to reap the benefits of!
You can then place it on the bed of your guy. Do not forget to spray some of your signature perfume on it. This way your guy will sleep with your fragrance and feel, embracing him every single night!
Like Norman Vincent Peale said, "Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful", you shall be presenting your guy an opportunity to cuddle up every night, all happy to be near your soft feel! A very romantic Christmas present, what say?
Say, if you give your guy an i-pod, load it up with all his favorite Christmas songs and carols or even Christmas poems. If he is a movie buff you can always buy him DVDs of Christmas romances like Love Actually or Noel and enjoy them together while cuddling up on the sofa with that quilt you made for him!
You can actually put in very small and cute soft toys as well! A Christmas present for boyfriend idea very reminiscent of "Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens/Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens..." isn't it?
So there you have it girls, five unique Christmas present ideas which can actually strengthen that bond you have. Some of them might need a little planning, but then it's the effort you put in to make your love smile, more than the presents themselves.
So go ahead and work for that perfect Christmas gift you want your soul-mate to have this Christmas. After all as Louisa May Alcott put it, "Christmas won't be Christmas without any presents"!!! Happy Christmas and all the best for the present shopping!
