QUESTION: what's an appropriate gift to get a guy for his convocation? should I get a gift? My bf and i have been together for 7 months, and didn't really get gifts for christmas or valentines day. He just buys himself pretty much everything so I don't really know what i should get him...

  1. Buy him something he wouldn't normally spend money on to get himself. Something silly and relevant. Is he moving somewhere new? Get him a housewarming gift that ties in with his interests (shows, music, etc.). Or something to put on his desk. He doesn't sound like a guy who wants something extravagant and clearly getting him something "useful" wouldn't help but you can generally find some good, funny tv show based, or band based, paraphernalia for the home or office online for not too expensive.

  2. Or get him nothing at all. It's possible he just doesn't "do" gifts.
    Or talk to him and see what he thinks.

  3. If he doesn't need material things, do something nice for him. I would much prefer it if my girlfriend didn't buy me things and just put in a bit more effort in bed instead.

    1. how would a girl put more effort in bed exactly?
      - a girl who is scared she isn't putting in enough effort in bed.

    2. @3a: Make sure at least one part of the session is all you doing things and him just enjoying it. If he gets carried away and starts helping you scold him playfully and hold him down. The best :)

  4. I sound just like him. If I want something, I don't wait for birthday/christmas or anything for someone to get it for me, I just get it myself. My family just gives me some money for birthdays/christmas, I told my parents this year to not give me anything as there was nothing I wanted.

    I would want something that reminded me of you. Doesn't have to be expensive, just something sentimental.

  7. Get him a nice tie! For guys, try and aim for something practical. When my boyfriend graduated, I gave him a really nice tie beforehand as a graduation gift, which he wore to convocation.

    Or at least a nice card. I gave him the tie in person and mailed him a card. I couldn't be there for his convocation so that's why I mailed the card along with a little goodie box.

    TL;DR Normally don't do gifts, but gave him a nice tie for convocation

    1. Noooooooooo. He'll feel obligated to wear it so as not to hurt your feelings, and is stuck with convocation pictures wearing a tie he might not even like.
