Witnessing the reaction on someone's face when you hand deliver them a gift they genuinely appreciate is one of the best feelings in the entire world. But it's a completely different scenario when it comes to purchasing a perfect present for bae around this time of year.
So, during the holidays, I have no issues going all out on friends and family and spending some serious cash money on others instead of treating myself. There's always an internal struggle of deciphering exactly what they like, what they'd want and if it's appropriate given how long you've been dating.
Now that that’s off your chest, follow this formula guaranteed to make her swoon at every stage of your relationship on this completely imaginary yet crucial annual event.
