RE: Gifting

Filed under: Advice — posted by Breakup Girl @ 9:21 am

Classic LetterLet’s wrap on December 29, 1997…

Dear Breakup Girl,

What should I get my boyfriend for Christmas? We have been only going out for a month but we are serious.

— Michelle

Dear Michelle,

Well, missy, if you’ve been going out for only a month, then Breakup Girl knows this guy about as well as you do. But your letter does highlight a common problem: meeting someone just before a major gift-giving holiday. There’s also the less common (but perhaps more serious) problem of meeting someone just before a non-gift-giving holiday, and giving him something anyway — planting a tree in his honor on Arbor Day, for example.

Listen up, you guys: at the early stage, your presents should not be commanding.

DO: pick up a little something sweet, warm, or fuzzy — chocolate, mittens, dice — that says “Hey there, I think you’re kinda sweet, warm, and fuzzy.”

DON’T regale him with anything time-consuming, grand, or intimidating — a ten-course dinner, a romantic weekend at a B&B, a mortgage — that says “Sit here, stay here, sign here.” If you do, chances are he won’t be around when it is time to get something more serious.

  13. I think that what you posted was very reasonable. But, what about
    this? suppose you added a little information? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you
    how to run your blog, but suppose you added a post title that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Breakup
    Girl » RE: Gifting is a little plain. You
    could glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they write article headlines to get people to
    click. You might add a video or a picture or two to get readers interested about
    what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it might bring your website a little bit
    more interesting.

  17. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something
    which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely
    broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to
    get the hang of it!
