He Bought Me A Gift For No Reason


When something unexpected happens to us we can find ourselves excited and even a little bit confused. Like when someone gives us something, such as a gift, but they do not give us a reason as to why they have given us this gift. This can be especially baffling when it comes from a guy that we may or may not have feelings for. So what does it mean? It is a great question to be asking. And we have the answers here for you! Unfortunately there is not just one set answer for you. There are a few reasons as to why he might have bought you a gift for, what appears to be, no reason. And get ready for ‘em, ‘cause here they are…

hidden meaning of gifts

The Reasons Why:

He’s Wooing You: This is a pretty common reason when it comes to early relationships. Such as when the two of you are just getting to know each other. We are talking like two or three dates in. Or if you are going by time then maybe a month or two into the relationship. It is not that unusual for a guy or a girl to bring their new partner gifts to show them that they are trying to woo them. He is trying to show you that he is really into you. The gift will usually be something that you have said you really enjoy or found to have some significant importance.

He Is Trying To Suck Up: And other times the reasoning for why he buys you a gift without reason is not so great. There are times that guys might buy their girl or girlfriend a gift because they are trying to butter you up. He might get you something great, but then a day later drop it on you that his awful parents are coming to stay at your house for a week. Or maybe he needs you to do him a huge favor and he is trying to soften you up so that he will receive a yes from you instead of a big fat no right away.

He Listened To You: Did you recently tell him that you really needed something or that you were really missing something important? This might be why he suddenly showed up with that thing in hand. He is trying to show you that he is capable of listening to you when you talk about things that are important to you. This is his way of trying to build a stronger bond with you. Or he might have taken advice from someone close to you. Someone might have told him that you love penguins and now he bought you the cutest penguin pajama bottoms! This is his way of showing that he cares.

He Made A Mistake: Yes he might have bought it for you because he is trying to be a suck up. But he might have also bought you a gift for no reason because he did something bad and he’s trying to suck up for that. He may have forgotten to do something important that you asked him or it could even be as bad as he kissed another woman. Of course, it is extremely important to try not jumping to those type of conclusions without proof.

He Has A Plan: He might be buying you gifts for no reason, but he might actually have a big reason! It might be because he has a big date planned or he is trying to celebrate a special occasion. Think hard, have any of your anniversaries or holidays passed? This might be the reason as to why he is buying you a gift!

meaning of gifts from a man

He Appreciates You: Yes, there are sweet enough guys out there that will just buy you a gift… Well, just because they can! They want to show you just how much they appreciate you. We know that it does not sound very realistic, but you would be surprised at the amount of boyfriends, partners and even just crush’s who will buy you a gift just because they think you deserve it. They might just love you that much and you should consider yourself lucky because of it!

He’s Trying To Be Romantic: Have you recently had a conversation with or around him that made it clear you thought romance was dead? Or how you wish there was more romance in your life? We often put gifts and romance together. We think gifts can symbolize chivalry and romantic ideals. This is just what we have been conditioned to believe. This is why jewelry is so popular when it comes to couples. He might think that giving you a gift without reason is actually the proper way to win you over! How cute is that?


    • If he is buying you clothes, then he may be interested in developing a romantic relationship with you. He may be interested in maintaining a physical relationship. He may view you as a friend. He may want to share a gift with you and have no other motives. Determine what you want for your future and take appropriate action. Have a great day, Jolin!

  1. My male coworker gave me a bracelet that he made, he makes and sells jewelry; he said he gave it to me because I was pouting. He said something that made me mad and after ignoring him a few times he let me choose a piece of jewelry….I’m not sure if he only sees me as a friend or if he wants something more?

    • It is possible that he views you as a friend. He may be interested in developing a relationship with you. Giving gifts may be a way that he shares his emotional connection. He may be flirting with you. Determine what you want for your future. Decide what is appropriate. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Reacy!

  2. I had asked my guy friend for the name of a Japanese book that the flash cards he showed me came from. He said he would look up the name. I asked him a few days later. He said he didn’t look for it. I talk to him a few days later then that night he texted me asking “Do you like listening to music on your phone or do you like CD’s” I answered and asked him what genres of music he liked thinking he wanted to talk music, but he didn’t reply back then three days later we say hi. I am sitting with a girlfriend of mine and he comes over and hands me a flash drive said it was a surprise and he thought I would like it. It turned out to be Japanese lessons. Although I liked it he didn’t have to go through the trouble to do that. Especially since he doesn’t really hang with me much. I txt’ed Thank you, that was really nice of you to do that. I thought it was going to be music since you asked me about music hehe. He txted back Well I didn’t want to give away the surprise. Another thing he texted later was I look forward to listening to you progress. I am so confused about it.

    • He made this flash drive for you. He felt as though he was doing something helpful. He likely feels an emotional and social connection with you. He wants you to take the lessons. This will strengthen your connection. If you want to nourish a relationship with him, then learn Japanese and speak with him. Have a great day, Lisa!

  3. I have dated a guy and known him for only consecutive 3 days of going out while in the city. He buys me a signature bag, give me books and also paid for my training for license renewal. I didn’t ask anything for it from him. Right now i didnt see him for almost 3 weeks but we have a constant communication, but not everyday. What do u think? He likes me or what? He doesn’t even tell single word that he like me

    • His behaviors are indications that he is interested in nourishing a relationship with you. Some people give gifts as a way to show their affection. Determine what you want for the future of this relationship. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Perhaps attempt to spend additional time with him in person. This will strengthen your relationship. Have a great day, Amelo!

  4. My boyfriend of seven years bought me babydoll lingere matching bra / panties and matching robe, that were all the wrong size. There had been nothing but battlefield bullshit daily for at least two months, not talking to one another, never knew he went out of town and nothing close to what taste I have or even based on what he has shown me. It wouldn’t be his taste either..what the hell am I suppose to rake from this

    • He wanted to share his lingerie desires with you. He may not have known that the clothes were the wrong size. If you believe that he was attempting to deliberately harm you, then end this relationship. If there is something in your relationship that you wish to address, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. The two of you will reach a decision about the future of your relationship. Have a great day, Elizabeth!

  5. My single neighbor are start giving me gifts every after he’s done travelling. He loves to surprise me with some sweet desserts, handkerchief, chopped stick and small stuffed animal. We’ve been know each other for about three years. Before that, He’s also giving me a stuffed pokemon doll, chocolates and a drink bottle that have engraved my name with gold ink and put pink love symbol. Every time festival season arrived his family will come to my house to celebrate together. My mother and his mother would like to see us to go for a date. We went for a date once. I’m so confused with the situation here since he laughed out loud everytime our parents ask about our relationship status. After all we did contact each other to hear out our hectic life and sharing thoughts. I just found it weird that he’s diligently giving me gifts but never thought to explain our relationship status.

    • His behaviors are indication of his feelings for you. It is likely a sign that he wants to maintain a romantic relationship with you. The two of you share a strong social and emotional relationship. Determine what you want for your future. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Have a great day, Hani!

  6. I told a friend of mine that I like him. But he said he doesn’t want a relationship and that I deserve better. But he is really kind to me, when we are going out we our friends, he always bring me home or take me to the places. And this year he was very close to me, talking about his family issues and I’m sharing my family issues. We talk even about our darkest thoughts. But then he started to avoid me. It’s been almost 2 months. Last week I invited all of my friends to come to my sister’s birthday. He told me one day after that he would come. At the party he came at me and told me that he bought a gift for me and my sister. So I told him to go after my sis and give to her, then he told me that: “choose the one you most like, first.” It was the same gift. But one was prettier than the other. I chose the pretty one. But than he avoided me the entire party. Only when it was ending, we talked a little. But that was all. What is it with him?

    • You shared your thoughts and feelings with this person, and he shared himself with you as well. It is clear that he cares for you and wants you to be safe. It seems that he is uncertain about what he wants for the future of this relationship, though it is certainly possible that his feelings for you are growing. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings, and give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Have a great day, Muppy!
