Rated 3.97/5 based on 728 customer reviews

Gift giving, whether at Christmas, Valentine’s Day or a birthday, can be fraught with insecurity and peril, especially when you’re at the beginning of a new relationship – or worse, are still in the “are we/aren’t we” stage of dating. Fortunately, I’m here to help you through all of this. After all, no matter how much we try to tell ourselves that a gift is just a gift, what you give to your sweetie carries an intrinsic message about how you feel about them and your relationship. It’s an extension of the Grand Romantic Gesture that looks great in movies but actually freaks people out in real life. Either way: at best it’s going to send very awkward messages. well, it can be the incident that causes your honey to start rethinking how they feel about you.It’s a delicate balancing act: if you spend too much, too early in the relationship, you risk coming off as though you’re starting to get clingy and desperate. One of my best friends once got a ring for Christmas from her boyfriend. If you want to avoid sending the wrong message with your gift and signaling that you might have gotten overly attached too quickly, you need to navigate the Price/Relationship axis.Some women are far more likely to want something useful than something schmoopy, while others will love you forever if you buy her an Assassin’s Creed Eagle hoodie or a Potat OS.But when you want to show that you care, you want to go the extra mile…

4 to 5 months, casual relationship: Same as above, but a gift of at the most isn’t outside the realm of reasonability.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.I point out that at this stage, practical gifts are more acceptable, especially if you’re living together.Just be sure that it’s something she’s expressed interest in; it wins you extra brownie points for being considerate and paying attention.
