Ask The Eye, Christmas Is About Giving It Not Receiving It

Dear Eye View

I am dating an absolutely wonderful man. His one drawback—he’s not the best gift-giver. His gifts are by no means cheap or not nice gifts—they just don’t fit my personality at all. I have gently urged him to consult my girlfriends and sisters (instead of his friends and family) when he comes up with what he thinks is a fabulous gift, but to no avail. I have a few inklings of what he may be getting me for a gift this holiday season, and it’s the complete opposite of what I would want or would ask for. He is really excited about whatever it is and I cannot crush his spirit—I appreciate his enthusiasm and the amount of time and thought that he’s put into this. Do I just keep my mouth shut and be grateful that I’ve found a wonderful person or do I try to be less than subtle in urging him to consult my friends the next time he wants to buy me a gift?  Confused

Dear Confused
