Just started dating christmas gift ideas

DON’T: Get him something completely cliché like a tie if he wears jeans and tees to work, a baseball book if he hates sports, a universal remote for his TV, any sort of grilling apparatus, a box of golf balls, a power drill, a huge bag of “masculine” grooming essentials, or a subscription to the beer of the month club if you’ve never seen him drink beer.

DO: Make him a cool winter Spotify playlist with songs you’re digging right now, and an i Tunes gift card.

Plus, a gift can say a lot about your feelings – are they lukewarm or red hot?

Today, I present Part 1 of my two-part series on the proper gift for the new or unofficial relationship. ” Then it hits you: you have to get them a present! When things are going well, you don’t want anything to rock the boat.

Part 1 is for the gentlemen and next week, I’ll offer some ideas for the ladies. You need a gift that says “I like you” but not “I want to meet your parents tomorrow.” Rule number 1: Don’t roll out the red carpet. Well, you did just start dating and you want to save a little magic for later, if/when things get more serious.

That first holiday season after you’ve started dating someone new feels extremely high pressure.

Spend too much or buy too intense a gift and you’ll freak them out.

Page 1 of 2Everyone has been in this situation: You just started dating someone only to find out their birthday is right around the corner. Here you are, with a new relationship and just as you're getting to know the person, their birthday rolls up out of nowhere and leaves you wondering about the gift.

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.

Pick a restaurant that has a long wait list but you were slick enough to swing by early on and ask the owner for a little help.

That says, “It may be early, but I want to see this last longer.” As for the present, keep it simple – maybe a book they have talked about reading or a bottle of wine they have been dying to try.

So snuggle in by the fire and get ready to make your first holiday memories as a couple.
