The pressure to nail the proper gift that says how you feel without going overboard (or being underwhelming) is more stressful than obsessively checking your phone for a text, an email, or even (gasp) a call back.

As if deciding what to wear on dates isn’t hard enough, now you’re stuck deciding what gift to buy – or even you should get them anything at all – for their birthday.
