lainie_epi Posted May 25 Share Posted May 25 My boyfriend and I are both graduating in June. I really want to get him a gift to celebrate a recognize everything he's worked for, so I did! We had talked about grad gifts a little while ago, and even a little about what I was thinking of getting him. I also really want him to get me a gift (it doesn't have to be anything big or extravagant, I only spent $50 on his gift) but a few things are making me hesitant to bring it up again: 1- He just bought me gifts for my birthday last week 2- He hasn't been working for a little while now. He did just start a paid internship and will get his first paycheck at the end of this month but it's only part-time and he's not making very much money so I know he's pretty strapped for cash right now So, on the one hand, I feel guilty asking him to spend any money on me. However, I also want him to recognize and celebrate all I've accomplished (I'm finishing my master's program) especially because I also already planned a surprise and spent a decent amount of money to go out for dinner drinks etc with some of his friends when he finished classes a few months ago. I don't want to feel resentful or hurt if he doesn't get me a gift because it's something that I want, but I just don't know what to do because I don't want to put him in a tough position money wise.
