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.
or this gift, fellas, I’d recommend an elegant romantic dinner out and a little something that you know they will like, to top it off.
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.
The situation: you’ve started a new relationship in the past couple of weeks / months, and you know that Christmas is coming.
Let’s discuss: This is the first thing that you’ll consider. Some might argue yes, depending on how close you’ve grown or how many dates you’ve had, some might say no.
Obviously, you don’t want to go too big, yet you don’t want to not give anything at all. DO: Get him a subscription to Netflix if he mentioned he’d like to start binge-watching “Narcos.” DON’T: Buy him a shiny new flat-screen to watch it on.
