Gifts that say "I dig you"...

    I know it's still early... but I am already brainstorming for Christmas gift ideas. What would be a meaningful (and socially appropriate) gift for someone that you are interested in and would like to know better?

    I was thinking a scarf might do (for the cold winter here), but it may be too boyfriendish? We see each other on a regular basis for work; but I don't consider us friends yet.

    Something they'll actually want to use. And if he uses Scarf's... go right ahead. icon_smile.gif

    a scarf does not say "I'm into you" a scarf says "I'm thinking of your best interests and want your neck to remain warm" which means I'm boring and will want to rub vix on your chest when your sick and give you soup.

    Something artistic or purely to be appreaciated; something that connects to his interest or hobby & it's soul purpose is to show him that you pay attention to who he is. Every time he looks at it, he will think of you & smile...
    Either that, or sexy underwear and a sex toy.

    first i suggest you get to be friends before gifting anything...or you might look like a crazy icon_biggrin.gif /joking

    a scarf is a perfect gift in this situation, its fuctional/practical, he will most likely think of you when he pulls it out of his closet, its durable and will last, and since you are in the Netherlands, a scarf is like socks...you can't have enough...

    the only problem that is that a scarf risks looking under-thought. if its the first thing that you think of gifting, chances are its the first thing everyone else thinks of too. that doesn't mean that its a bad gift, but may include a thoughtful note saying that you appreciate his friendship etc. etc...that way it seems a little more personal.

    Christmas is three months away. If you still need to get to know him and don't even consider yourself friends yet, it seems kind of odd that you are thinking of a Christmas gift. Don't get ahead of yourself. Get to know him first and then see if you still want to get him a gift. I hope you aren't already making a mix tape for him.

    I agree with Eccentric, a gift that states something personal that they use for a hobby, etc. shows that you appreciate them and are interested in what they like. I have a good friend he is not gay, and yet he knows my passion for running for Christmas he gave me some running books, a DVD, and introduced me to some really awesome IPA beer'sicon_lol.gif Suffice to say that when I buy the same brand or continue reading some of the books, I think of him.

    Hahaha mixed tapes are so 80s, Love it! icon_wink.gif

    But I do agree with heartrobb, get to know him more, be friends with them before you start thinking of tracks to record, lol!

    I never want anything material from anyone else because I can probably get that on my own and I usually find material gifts miss the target (I was once given a set of video games - I don't even play games and I didn't even own that type of console).

    I would rather spend time with the people that "dig me". A dinner out. Or better yet, a home made dinner...or breakfast in bed. A mini-trip to a nearby ski resort or spa. Or even movie passes.

    Of course, that is just me. It depends on the individual and what they are like.

    Nothing says "I want to know you better" than an extra large tub of Anal Lube ...

    ... and a variety pack of condoms:

    Hold up! Let's go back to that sentence....we see each other for work but I don't consider us friends yet. Then you do not buy him any gifts. Invite him for a cup of coffee, a work out, a walk or lunch and then you BECOME friends.

    Then never ever tell him how long you had that scarf when you give it to him next Christmas or he will bolt out the door.
