Getting gifts for your significant other can be quite challenging. Especially if you don't know exactly what they want, need, or how much to spend. Pick the wrong thing and you run the risk of disappointing them on their special day, and no one wants that.
What about a situation where the person tells you exactly what they want, but you just don't feel like getting it for them? As the gift buyer, it is up to you to make that decision, right?
