Make sure you ask for the birthday only once and record it immediately before you forget. Trust us, you’ll forget if you don’t write it down or sync it to your calendar app asap.
For more advanced boyfriends, you can gift your girl on a specific anniversary such as when you met or first hugged or something similar.
For most guys, anniversary dates are nearly impossible to remember, so avoid if you can.
- Be observant
Most girlfriends will tell you the gift they’d like indirectly. As much as listening to your girl 24/7 can be a challenge, pay attention when she complains about something and see if you can fix the issue with a gift. It’s that simple.
Having your girl’s measurements such as dress size and shoe size will come in handy when picking a gift. Just check the shoe size on one of her shoes or ask only once and record it for future use.
- Budget or Buy early
Once you’ve identified a potential gift, you can either start putting money aside or buy the gift as early as possible especially if you’re ordering online. This will be especially necessary for major holidays such as Valentine’s and Christmas. There’s nothing as annoying as having to find a new gift at the last minute.
With these simple tips, you’re guaranteed to pick a great gift every time. Remember to be consistent with the gifts if you want to keep your girl. Aside from broke men, nothing turns off women faster than lack of affection.
