I'll say this about gift-giving: it's a good idea (for both parties in a relationship). I had a friend in college who would literally pick up things he found on the street (discarded toys, old comic books) and present them to you as a gift when he arrived to meet a girl he was wooing. Gifts can be small (as small as a piece of paper; the best gifts I have received have been written notes—with the exception of my i Pad); they key is that they be heartfelt.This reader is positive that her boyfriend didn't read our multitude of gift idea posts before the holidays, and, what's more, seems to have missed one of life's most basic, logical facts (and not even just dating life): people like presents.*What does it mean if a guy doesn't buy gifts?My feelings were hurt when I didn't even get a Christmas card. He is good to me and sometimes I think ‘yes, this is the one for me’ but other times I am not so sure.For example we have been going out for 5 years (we are both 26) and he has never got me anything for Valentines day. It’s not that I particularly want a card or chocolates but it’s the fact that he would care enough to give me these things as a token of his affection.Most guys are not really into that sort of thing and well they may not give you the huge smile you were looking for."
