My boyfriend never bring a gift to me

Hi my boyfriend and I have been dating for almost 4 months and when we go out he pays but he never buy me a gift. Even when he come to my house for dinner he don't bring a bottle of wine. It was my nephew birthday and he didn't get him a gift. He seems kind but maybe it's only if he's participating so he'll find it easier to pay for the night. Should I speak to him about it.

Please do NOT speak to him about it.​ 4 months is a very short time to expect gifts from him to your relatives. As far as bringing wine to dinner, please just ask him if would please bring wine and you will provide the dinner. It is very poor manners to correct what you perceive to be an oversight in the etiquette of another. Be gracious and kind. In time you will learn more about him.

This is a very interesting question, thank you.
