Buying things for yourself is easy, as you know what you want. But what about buying a gift for the other half for their birthday??
Okay so you’ve been dating seriously now, and you probably can comfortably shop around and point out things that you both like as you browse the shops. Picking up on these small things and making a mental note earlier on will give you a good list to work on. I’d probably even drag him/her to a few specific shops to see if they fancy anything in there too, subtly of course!
Now it’ll obviously depends on their age range, but every guy is a big kid deep down. So I stick by the ‘big boys toys’, whether it’d be a few new games for the gamer nerd, or a toy that everyone’s going nuts for, have a nosy in these few shops:
http://www.thinkgeek.com fun gifts for the nerds, you’d be surprised at how many guys really want a light saber, and I’m not talking about the one that you find in any toy shop!
Are they really into their games? Pre-order the new Gears of War out on 28th August from http://www.zavvi.com. Just make sure he hasn’t already got it on order, and that it won’t take away from your time together! You will have a good few game free days before the game arrives though!
What’s the hot new gadget that everyone’s going crazy for? Air wheel board!
Menkind are great for gadets, it’s even fun going in and having a browse around the crazy shop. It’s pretty pricey, but it’s the new scooter! With it’s futuristic look, and leaning speeds of up to 10mph, it’ll be amazing fun for everyone. So it could be one of those ‘Birthday gifts for you’ but really for me too!
