When you have dated for about 1-3 months, it’s better to stick with something simple and cost-efficient. Many times, you would want to surprise your partner with something fancy, but try to resist. One reason for this is because you are setting the bar up high too early in the relationship. Imagine what you’d have to get your partner if a year passes by.
Some good cost-efficient gifts should include something that you partner likes or mentioned. If he likes a certain brand of shirts, try purchasing one that you think might look good on. If your girl likes to read books, get her some popular novels. The thing is, try to keep it simple and try to be creative about it.
This step is for the daters who are between 6 months to a year. You’ve passed that barrier and the relationship is blossoming into a long-term relationship. After a couple months of dating, you’re likely to become a lot closer and your gifts can reflect that.
The next step is for couples who have been together for over a year. This is also a bit tricky. Many couples tend to get lazy after a year. They think they can pull it off by getting last minutes gifts, assuming they’re “in” with their partners. However, this is the time to get personal and your gift should reflect something special and meaningful.
Take them to a nice and fancy restaurant. Maybe shop around for some jewelry. The point is, you want to show her your feelings both by your gift and through what you say. Make sure that you always get her a card. Women like it when guys express their inner feelings out. They love it even more if you tell them how you feel. Whatever it is, you have been with your partner for over a year. Why not spoil him or her a bit?
