My daughter (17) is dating a very nice young man. I have no idea what to get him for Christmas. I don't want to get anything too expensive nor do I want to go to cheap or too personal. What would you recommend?

You could ask your daughter maybe?

Or does he like music?...maybe a gift-card so he could chose something himself?

Is he a handy-man type?

Maybe a tool or a tool-box?

Does he like cologne a certain frangrance your daughter might know?

A scarf or a pair of gloves.

Does he collect anything or have a favourite team?

Is he into computers?

<3

Hope this helps!

Oh-prepaid gas card sounds good too. He has to drive quite a ways to work every day.

LOL Cheryl- sounds like you got some experience the hard way.

Some of my sons' gf have been well...quite interesting. I suspect both of them at this point will some day be my daughter in laws so I'm putting quite a bit more thought into their gifts this year.

lol I've done the sons' girlfriends for years now but this is the first boyfriend. I guess I really need to get used to this since I do have two daughters. ;)

Oh you know Cheryl-I think he is into sports. I'll see if I can find out his favorite team and look for some kind of logo thing. Thanks for the great idea!!
