It's christmas time and I have no idea what to get for my banker boyfriend! I am also in the industry but it also trumps me when choosing a gift for him..
he's still an analyst and his firm is lax on wearing ties.. shoes are hard to buy.. any suggestions?

    Messenger bag? Coat? Or yea, a BJ's membership.

    the fact that he's a banker shouldn't have a damn thing to do with what to get him. He's your f'ing boyfriend for christ's sake...if you get him something for work then you're obviously a lame banker chick

    If the glove don't fit, you must acquit!

    Thank you - that's a really good idea.

    Pictures would likely be well received - though not the kind you would frame. Or display in a public area. Film is also a sure hit.

    Whatever you do, don't just buy him something. The benefit of being in finance is that you have enough money to simply purchase anything you want. It is likely that he already owns everything that he needs and most of the things that he wants (certainly everything that he wants in the price range you're likely thinking). That knocks purchasable gifts out of the picture.

    You know better than anyone here what he'll like best. Is he the emotional type that would enjoy a photo album of the two of you? Maybe he is into concerts and you can get tickets to an upcoming show. How about a night out at a comedy club where you guys can listen to raunchy jokes, get drunk, and then get at it after? I know it isn't your anniversary, but what about repeating your first date together? The options are endless.
