Christmas gift ideas for a guy you just started dating
Maybe a home cooked dinner and a good bottle of wine. Seriously, at this stage, you’re still getting to know one another.Anything more than this and it’s going to make you look like you’re already thinking about what to name your kids. 1 to 3 months: You’re going to want to use how often you see each other as a gauge here.You’re also starting to enter the period where jewelry isn’t a bad idea – something small and simple, like a pendant or earrings – but avoid anything with gems.This is also a good time to prowl through Amazon wishlists for inspiration.Concert tickets, especially for a band she likes, are a great idea here.4 to 5 months, casual relationship: Same as above, but a gift of at the most isn’t outside the realm of reasonability.And with that in mind: One of the keys to picking the perfect gift is keep her personality and interests in mind.
Just be sure that it’s something she’s expressed interest in; it wins you extra brownie points for being considerate and paying attention.
