Christmas is an amazing time of year, but it can also be stressful. It’s nerve-racking because it takes thought and action to get those gifts for the one’s you love. But how about when you are not in love with someone but you want to show you care? The key is to make sure you don’t spend a crazy amount on someone you’re not sure you will be with in 2-3 months. However, you do want to show the person you care and you have been paying attention because obviously there is potential. So while you’re in that gray area where things can be misunderstood, here are a couple presents that Quentin (Terrence Howard) from the movie 'The Best Man Holiday' thinks the normal average joe can get for that "special someone". (If you are a baller or shot caller, please ignore this advice lol.)
Get something he/she can always use.
Show you care and that you pay attention.
Don’t send out the wrong idea by spending too much or not enough money.
What message are you sending?
Sports memorabilia is golden for those sports fanatics. (Make sure you don’t get the real team though.)
Everybody is talking about television series such as ‘Scandal’ and ‘Breaking Bad’. This is a great gift for someone trying to catch up. This gift is cool for men and women.
Gift Certificate For an Activity
Yoga and kick-boxing are two activities that you can get that person into. A gift certificate to a couple of classes is great and is something you can do together to grow closer. This gift is great for men and women.
Sports are a great way to stay healthy and balanced. Making sure your “special friend” is ready for that work out is a thoughtful way to show you care. This is an awesome gift for men and women.
You have to pay attention to the person your getting to know. Knowing things your special friend likes is essential. Finding that perfect book is a great gift for someone who enjoys reading.
A thoughtful, personalized poem is a heart-felt way to share your feelings. Make sure that you package it with care so it doesn’t come off as cheap.
Grooming is a fundamental part of making sure you are suitable for dating and just plain living. A grooming kit is perfect for a male or female.
Scarf and Gloves
When it gets cold, scarfs and gloves are a priceless gift. Make sure you take time to get something of quality. (It doesn’t mean it has to be expensive.)
You can never go wrong with candles from Saks. Make sure you get something that is handmade… we don’t want to come off cheap. lol
Funky Framed Art Work
“Most people only name artists like Picasso or Basquiat, and the only reason they know Basquiat is because of Rick Ross,” says Sue Tsai. Art is DOPE and it is not just for the rich or old. Funky framed art pieces would be a great gift for someone your still getting to know.
