    What's a good Christmas gift for an ex where we are still friends (with the hope, from at least one if us, it turns back jnto a relationship)?

    Bottle of expensive wine?
    Book?

    I am stuck and don't know what to get him.

    I'm presuming you are the one who would like to get back with him?

    I'd get him something not too personal.

    Give him a blow job. Suze Orman says you should give something memorable this year and not expensive. So take him to a movie a matinee to be financially prudent, then blow him in the theater haha.

    Something you can both use would be a strategic gift, yeah, like movie tickets or something.

    You dated, which means that you should probably have a more detailed understanding of his interests on which you can base a great gift decision. For example, he really enjoyed getting massages from you? Get him a gift certificate to a massage parlor.

    Make him some cookies or some pretzel mix. Easy, inexpensive and yet personal. No need to be out there spending money on your ex.

    you are his ex and have no idea what to buy him... to the point of asking the opinion of strangers on the net?

    well no wonder he dumped you.

    Either something very personal but not romantic between the two of you; or the gift of moving on yourself to show him what moving on is all about. Any grey areas will mislead you both into a mutual oblivion. One common thread in any good relationship; either with or without the other person, is that you both are happy as you go on in the same direction; even if it is away from one another. If you're going to be together later, whatever you do now won't change that. Love has a way of working itself out, regardless of what we do. Let time and your lives bring you back together. Don't force it on him, or him to you. That's just nonsense.

    Thanks for all the replies.
    I didn't want to go overboard which could make him feel uncomfortable.

    I gave him a bottle of wine from my favorite vineyard.
    A 2004 Cabernet Savignon from Alpha Omega.
    2004 was the year of their first release.
    I bought a case of it in 2006 and have been cellaring it.

    So, it's a great wine, cool that it came from their first year of release and it's from my private cellar.

    Personal, classy and with a bit of a story since it was their first release.

    Did I do good?

    I don't buy shit for my exes because they're exes. But that's because I didn't remain friends with any of them.

    AMoonHawk saidBuy him 2 tickets to a movie or play and let him take whom ever he wants to ... if he doesn't take you ... well now you know


    If you're interested in getting back together this is the best idea - it'll give you a chance of knowing where you stand.

    Good choice. It has meaning but wasn't suggestive. Good job!

    It really depends on what the relationship is now. Most of my exes I have little to do with, but one is a very good friend; we've sort of become confidants for each other. The fact that you are uncertain tells me you should give something neutral...no sexy bathrobe.

    The wine went over well.
    He is learning about wine and loves Heitz, so me giving him a bottle of Alpha Omega was a good choice.

    I was going to buy him tickets to a concert as well but thought it might be overload, so I didn't.
    However, we just left each other, after having dinner at a friends house, and he invited me to that exact same concert.

    Things are looking up.

    First chop off a horse's head...oh wait no that's for something different.

    I say ex=no present, but in general I do not buy gifts for grown-ups that I'm not dating. Take him out to lunch or dinner if you are still friends. (also if you decide not to do presents say so, or he might buy you something and it'll be awkward.) Just my opinion in general--though you seem to have already resolved your dilemma.)
