Imagine that you just started dating someone for a few weeks, and suddenly there’s a special day that you need to celebrate. Should you give her something aside from asking her to have dinner with you?
In the 2010 film, Valentine’s Day, one story focused on Liz (Anne Hathaway) and Jason (Topher Grace). The two just started dating, and Jason kind of freaked out when he remembered that it’s Valentine’s Day. He asked his colleagues what he should give Liz on a special day, considering they’ve only been dating for 2 weeks. In the end, he gave him a card with a note and their pictures. Liz told him that she likes it because it’s simple, and maybe they lived happily ever after.
So if you’re like Jason but you want to kick it up a notch, check these 8 gifts you can give to a girl you just started dating!
1. Something sweet
The most common gifts for new sweethearts are chocolates and other sweet treats. Giving someone a box of chocolate can make them smile and feel appreciated unless she’s allergic. Aside from the fact that chocolate is an affordable luxury, it also contains health benefits such as help maintain good blood circulation, reduce fatigue, and reduce your chances of getting cancer. Aside from those, it also helps to reduce stress, and it keeps you in a better mood.
However, If your girlfriend doesn’t like chocolates, you can also give her cookies, cakes, or other pastries. She’ll definitely appreciate it, and won’t hesitate to “give you some sugar”!
2. Something cute
You can never go wrong with cute things. Since you’ve just started going out, you don’t need to spend too much on gifts for her. Give her something like a tote bag with a cute design, a tumbler, or a pair of socks.
If you’re still undecided about the design, you can visit a giftware shop that has lots of products to choose from. Just pick something you think she’ll like based on the time you were together.
3. Something for the brain
Do you both enjoy cards, puzzles, and amusements? Give her a deck of cards with questions you can answer, a fun puzzle you can solve together, or an interesting board game. It’ll be fun when you give her something you can both enjoy.
It’ll be also a plus because now you’ll have another thing in common.
4. Something to keep her safe
Nowadays, it’s necessary to have your own safety kits. Tell her that you care for her by giving her a kit that contains some facemasks, a hand sanitizer, and a face shield. It’s a kind of gift that will never go to waste because it’s what everyone is using.
Aside from those, you can also add pepper spray just to keep her safe from harassers she may encounter on the streets.
5. Something for her hobby
If you know any of her hobbies, you can focus on one, and give her something she can use. First, ask yourself what is the hobby that she spends a lot of her time doing? For example, baking. Second, identify what are the things she can use for her hobby which she may not have. If she likes to bake, maybe she needs a set of unusual cookie cutters. Finally, you now find a store where you can purchase your gift!
6. Something based on her style
In the past weeks that you’ve been together, you probably noticed what her style is. In this case, you can give her something based on her preference.
For example, it looks like she’s into streetwear fashion so you can give her a pair of earrings or a beanie that resembles the kind of clothes she usually wears. If she’s the classy type and you don’t mind giving too much, give her jewelry such as argyle pink diamonds or simple pearls.
However, you should be aware that you’re not overdoing it, like giving her a whole outfit.
7. Something to keep her relaxed
Even if she always looks so calm and chill, it doesn’t mean that nothing is stressing her out. Soothe her future stressful days by giving her a care package. You don’t need too much stuff, just a scented candle and tea set would suffice.
Aside from that, you can also give her bath essentials such as bath bombs, body wash, body scrub, and shower oil.
8. Something you both like
If you’ve been hanging out lately, you must have a thing or two in common. You can think of what you can give to her based on the things you both like. For example, if you are both a fan of We the Kings, you can give her a merch or a mix of the band’s songs. It’s kind of sweet to give her something that you also like.
It isn’t hard to think about what to give to her, is it? Now that you have a gift in mind, you can ask her out and surprise her. Share with us how she reacted by commenting below!
