5. She doesn’t like you.

When a boyfriend’s mom doesn’t like his girlfriend, there’s sometimes nothing that can be done about it. However, that shouldn’t keep you from trying. Asking your boyfriend what type of gift she would like and then getting it for her may make her change her feelings towards you – even if it’s just a tiny bit.

6. Your boyfriend says she would like one.

Ask your boyfriend this: If you got his mom a present, would it be well-received, or would she think it was weird? A son knows his mother best, so take his advice about it.

7. Your gut tells you to buy one.

If you keep thinking about getting her a gift, then you should just get her one. There’s a reason why you are thinking about it, and it’s best just to go with it. It doesn’t have to be expensive or big; just a small something to say Happy Holidays and that you’re happy to be with her son will do nicely.

Pro Tip: Presenting the Gift to Your Boyfriend’s Mom

When giving a gift, it’s important not to make it about yourself. You don’t want to make it seem like you just got it for her so you could score major brownie points. Simply hand it to her with a smile and say, “you’re welcome” when she thanks you. From that moment on, don’t mention the gift. She may say something about it, but staying humble is the best way to respond. This shows that you are selflessly giving it to her, which is a very good image to portray to your boyfriend’s mother. She wants to feel as though you’ll be just as selfless with her son.

Happy gift giving!

    ▌▌▌▌▌ I just got paid $7500 working off my computer this month. And if you think that's cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers and made over $8k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do, ➨➨➨➨➨➨➨➨CHECK44.COM
