Gifts for that special someone
Gifting something special to that special someone has never been an easy job for anyone, especially when you have just started dating. It certainly gets easier when we have known them long enough to guess what they would like or need. But it’s a whole new ball game when you are in the initial phase of knowing each other, yet you have to find that perfect gift for their birthday, graduation day or buy something that says ‘just so you know, I care about you’.
You have to find a gift that is personal and sweet, yet not creepy and desperate. However, since you don’t know the person well enough, you can rely on the below list.
1. Your favourite book
It’s a great way to know each other better. If you know your date has never read THE book that you live and breathe by, and the book that totally defines where you stand emotionally, gift them a copy. This opens up a chance to give you some insight about your compatibility.

It’s easy to maintain, it’s super pretty and it’s indoor! Even if they have few windows in the rooms, your date will love it as this house plant blossoms in low light.

Jar candles are elegant and they are recyclable too. Choose a set with varied fragrances, so that they can light one up according to their mood.
12. Mini grooming box
There are many options available online for both men and women. Choose a good brand of your choice, or try to know what their favourite grooming brand is and buy accordingly.
13. Massage oils
It’s just the right kind of gift to let your special someone know exactly what’s on your mind. It’s also the best kind of playful and fun gift, ideal for the honeymoon phase in your relationship.
14. A mini sex toy
If you want to be a little gutsy and if you two are already having sex, then a mini sex toy is the perfect way to let your partner know that you are up for some experimentation. Choose something that is not intimidating and something that you both can enjoy.
So pick a gift that is not too expensive, not too big, not too stressful, not too vague and you will do just fine!
