1st year dating gift ideas

This is just a dating anniversary but we do live together and I think marriage will come in the next 5 years.

and Christmas is coming up and the only thing he said he wants is me and a long weight lifting bar (seperatly of course) I was thinking of sending one of those edible arrangements to his work but I never know if he is driving or in the office (works for a trucking company) Any Ideas?

Choosing a meaningful gift is not easy when you’re still getting to know someone. Heaven knows the Hallmark Industrial Complex won’t be providing much inspiration—the romantic gift sector tends to save its most effective guilt-trip marketing for actual married persons, particularly around Valentine’s Day and on wedding anniversaries.

It must be memorable, original, heartfelt, and, most importantly, not too weird. In fact, you may not know it being an unmarried person yourself, but a list of traditional wedding anniversary gifts by year actually exists.

Maniacal commerce-pushing aside, this social construct nevertheless serves as a guide for clueless, uninspired married persons to express love and commitment to their spouses in a manner deemed appropriate and worthy.

Remember that it’s the thought that counts, and if you put your mind to it, giving a memorable gift can be done on a tight budget.However, having a simple conversation about the holiday or picking a low-key gift or event can take the stress out of the day and turn it into something you enjoy.Gift giving for a holiday or birthday can be a prickly thing to navigate when you've only recently started dating someone.You don't want to go too big, as it might make her feel uncomfortable (not to mention put too much pressure on a burgeoning relationship).But you don't want to go too small, either; a pat on the back and a "nice to know ya" won't exactly inspire confidence. Something that isn't too expensive, but still shows that you're stoked to be dating her.
