Surprised? Yes, get him a Netflix subscription if he loves movies and if your guy is a football fan, then get one of his favourite sports channels subscribed. A DSTV subscription for live matches is a good way to start. The streaming service will give him access to major sports events, documentaries, and more premium content. You will surely win his heart with this.

A Date

Yes, take him out on a date. I know it is customary for guys to take ladies out but what happens to breaking the rule? You must not follow conventions and mind you, this is a special occasion. Take him out, and make him feel loved and special. It should not always be the guy, ladies too should pull up these surprises.

Slide Sandal

This sounds perfect for a Christmas gift. Guys don’t want much from you but they too love to be treated specially. Guys do love slide sandals and getting your man one could do a whole this period.

A Credit Alert

He doesn’t need to be broke or ask and that’s why it is called a gift. If you have his account details which you should, you could surprise him this period. It doesn’t need to be much but small things done on very special occasions could mean so much. Do well to also attach a special message.

A Pair of Undies

Get something colourful and beautiful. The old pairs should not be worn out before you get him new ones. Just do it this period. Get him new undies that will make you smile every time you look at him in the bedroom. Do well to add a pack of white singlets. Sounds romantic right?

A Pair of New Shoes

Sandals or flip-flops are worn casually but every guy needs the kind of shoes that fits his official status. This could be expensive but it doesn’t matter. Get him a pair of brown or black shoes that will match his suit. I will also recommend you add a brown or black leather belt.

Does he work out?

He doesn’t need to be a gym enthusiast but if he does any kind of workout routine, then you should encourage him. Get him a pair of trainers and you would have motivated the Arnold Schwarzenegger in him.

Get any of these for your Nigerian lover this period and I am sure you are going to make him happy. It doesn’t need to be something expensive necessarily but make sure you get something as a way of telling him you love and appreciate him. Men don’t demand so much.
