Having a new woman in your life can be terribly exciting, and sometimes overwhelming as well, especially when it comes to meeting expectations. If you haven’t been going out that long, you have one thing less to worry about – she’s (hopefully) not expecting a ring this holiday season. On the other hand, you need to step up to the challenge and get her something that will blow her mind and create a story that will be re-told for years to come. Regardless of how you met, whether by traditional means through friends or through a group you belong to, such as biker dating, travel dating or any other kind of matchmaking, getting her the first Christmas gift has to be a fairytale-like moment that will make all her married friends jealous (no pressure). Below, we present a few gift ideas to help you kick-start your search.
#1: Tickets To A Show
The first step to buying your new girlfriend a gift is to remember one very simple fact – get her a gift she’d like, not something that you’d like. The gift should absolutely reflect who you are, but it should be addressed to her, and her hobbies and desires. In light of the fact that most women love to go out, getting her a pair of tickets for a show is a thoughtful yet not too extravagant an idea. If she’s a girly girl, surprise her with two tickets to a Christmas ballet show or a musical, and if she’s a bit tougher, a live music show would be a slam dunk.
#2: Couple’s Massage
Getting your girlfriend a couple’s massage at a fancy salon proves you can think like a woman when necessary. Most girls would go crazy over a gift like that, especially if those nice ladies at the salon wrap up that gift certificate like it needs to be presented to a queen. If you’re not a fan of massages, you can get her a spa day for one, which is also extremely thoughtful, but remember that she loves to spend time with you, and as you can see, both of these ideas so far are for the two of you to enjoy together. If you give her an ‘experience’ rather than a material possession, psychologists agree that she’ll feel closer to you.
You’ll notice that there aren’t any trips to Paris on this list because such grand gestures usually come with a ring. Speaking of rings, women absolutely love jewelry, no matter the occasion. An engagement ring is not the only sparkly piece you can give your girlfriend, and a pair of cute earrings or a bracelet could just do the trick. Make sure it’s her favorite brand, and if you’re unsure what that is, take a peek into her jewelry box. Don’t ask her friends because they’ll start planning her engagement party. Also, whichever gift you decide to get her, remember that presentation is half the job. If the gift is wrapped up nicely with lots of care, and a few personal touches, you’ll score some major points and climb further up the best boyfriend ever list.
