He also doesn't pay for dates often and it's not like I would mind also paying sometimes.
here's a list of what I bought him because I love giving gifts and much as receiving
a zippo lighter
a picture frame for a photo of his mom who recently passed away
He did have a birthday but a lot pf the time these were just things he mentioned in passing and I decided to surprise him with them.

I know it sucks when he's insensitive, but thinking about it makes you no good. Did you ever talked to him about this? Maybe he even isn't aware. Or if he doesn't like giving stuff, you could say to him that once in a while you expect something like this, not big, but meaningful. Some guys just don't think this is important, so you'll have to explain him some things about a girl's way of thinking :)2
