Your BF bought you a...
Just a card
It’s the thought that counts! You know that he took the time to go to the store and pick out the perfect card just for you. Be appreciative and promise you will hang it on your mirror as soon as your get home. And if he hand made it… that may just be the cutest thing in the world, that boy deserves bonus points for effort!
A Keepsake necklace
It may be a bit cheesy and something that you would never even dare to wear in public, but don’t let him know that! Be more than appreciative and let him know that it is so special that you are only going to wear it on special occasions. Make sure to wear it for date nights and his family parties to show that you truly are a devoted GF and love his thoughtfulness.
Something way too elaborate
He spent just little more than you did on gifts this year? There is no need to be embarrassed about your homemade brownies or on sale boxers. Show that you greatly appreciate the gift and that you can’t wait for him to open his. Don’t apologize for your gift being a little cheaper because he won't really know that unless you say it. Hey, if its meant to be, you can splurge on him next year!
Not all guys are the lovey dovey type, and that is okay! If it has only been a few months since you two have started dating and he probably didn’t think a present was needed. If you got him something small give it to him with a smile and tell him is a “just because gift.” If he tries to apologize for not getting you anything, tell him that is all right and that his presence is all that you wanted anyway.
