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…
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!
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?
