Default Boots for boyfriend for Xmas...help!

So I want to buy my "boyfriend" boots for Christmas. I know near to nothing about snowboarding and wanted some opinions. He has a Forum board (it's blue, black and white). I was thinking of getting him Burton boots? Or is that like a no-no to mix around brands? Should I get Forum boots? He has a black Burton jacket. My ex boyfriend did motocross and they'd be called a goon or whatever for wearing certain stuff. I was thinking black boots too maybe? He has grey snowboarding pants. Maximum price would be $200. He's going on a big snow boarding trip after Christmas. Help please lol.

Get him a gift certificate.

Boots are one of those things that have to fit perfect. They're not a fashion item, they're arguably one of the most important pieces of functional equipment for boarding.

Gift card for sure! He needs to try on a bunch of boots and find the one that fits his foot best. It's not a one boot fits all kind of deal. $200 will buy him a really nice boot.

Ok thanks guys! I mean if I don't get him boots he will be renting a pair wherever he is going. I think I'll bring him to our local Burton shop as a surprise!

Or I'll buy him a pair and give him the receipt so he can go and return them if he needs to before he leaves. I like having an actual gift to give instead of a gift card.

Yea my girl is they same way. This is the only problem I see about that, is he will be super excited about them and probably just use them instead of returning them to see if it is actually the perfect fit.

Ya true, hopefully he won't! I will tell him if he needs to return them to go right ahead! He doesn't snowboard often (a few times during the winter), but he is not a beginner boarder so I think any boot would be better than the ones he would have to rent!
