Gifts for guys you just started dating
DON’T: Planning it for months and months and months in advance. Likewise, don’t be that girl and book a romantic weekend at that adorable B&B upstate.
DON’T: Get him something completely cliché like a tie if he wears jeans and tees to work, a baseball book if he hates sports, a universal remote for his TV, any sort of grilling apparatus, a box of golf balls, a power drill, a huge bag of “masculine” grooming essentials, or a subscription to the beer of the month club if you’ve never seen him drink beer.
Everyone loves an excuse for a proper date night, and one can't go wrong with booking an experience, like concert tickets to see a favorite band, an evening of pasta making and eating at New York City favorite Eataly, or tickets to a play.
A small gesture often goes a long way in new relationships—a favorite scent, either candle or fragrance will be well-appreciated and won't go to waste, neither will a cozy knit for the upcoming Hygge months of February and March.
DO: Take him out to dinner, maybe for a drink after.
DON’T: Treat him to a 9-course dinner at a Michelin-starred restaurant, and present him with a bottle of Glenmorangie Pride 1981.
