The Holidays, Gift Giving and Dating
The Lavalife online dating site has created a Bible. Ok, it's not as dramatic as a Bible, but it comes in just as handy. It is a list of gift suggestions created by their dating guru Lori Miller for dating singles in different levels of a relationship. She offers great ideas for daters in the initial phase of courtship, the mid-level of daters and those who have been in it for longer terms.
You certainly don't want to buy a girl diamonds after only four or five dates. But what do you buy that shows your interest, without seeming desperate or needy? She suggests something sweet or tasty or along the lines of their favorite foods. For example, a special bottle of wine is a great way to say, "I like you" and one that isn't too costly. And if they haven't gotten you a gift in return, they and you won't be so uncomfortable.
After six months of dating, the gift selecting process becomes a lot wider. You can opt for more personalized gifts since you know the person and their preferences better. You can get gift certificates to their favorite stores. Buy several CD's in their genre of music. You can even splurge and buy electronics or jewelry you think they would like.
After a year of dating, the trickiness is mostly over. You can buy more expensive gifts and know your sentiments are appreciated and most likely returned. Gifts would include fancier jewelry, watches, Blackberry's, leather items, etc. Only your budget becomes your limit now.
When shopping for your date, keep it fun and light. Your dating experience has just begun and is off on the right foot. Read the lava life gifting tips to make sure you keep it on the right foot all the way into a New Year.
