Are you in a relationship that’s only a few months old and have a gifting opportunity coming up? Maybe it’s her birthday or you’re dating a 2014 graduate; either way, you may have snuck by Valentine’s Day with your new girlfriend, but your first gift-giving event is now around the corner. Here’s some helpful tips and ideas for gifting for the first time to your new-ish girlfriend.
Spa manicure and pedicure
A classic pick that most women can’t get enough of. Head to a local spa or her neighborhood mani-pedi spot and gift her a relaxing spa treatment and fresh polish. Put the gift certificate in a colorful card with a sweet note.
Initial pendant necklace
There are a number of shops online or local mall jewelers that now sell letter pendant necklaces. If she wears her “favorite” everyday necklace, grab a single letter charm for her to interchange. Or, pick two for her first and middle name.
Slippers and robe set
Let her cozy up in a plush robe and matching slippers. Extra points if you have it monogrammed, but not necessary if it’s still a new-ish relationship. Check out Pottery Barn or The Company Store for quality picks.
Wireless, high-end headphones
She probably already has the smartphone, so why not gift a pair of quality, wireless headphones to complement her on-the-go lifestyle. Beats by Dre and Bose offer noise-canceling, bluetooth options that won’t disappoint.
Gift card to a wine bar or coffee shop
Does she have a favorite weekend spot for catching up with her girlfriends or studying? Grab a gift card to her go-to cafe. Taking note of what she likes to do with her friends or for some alone time will be a sure win!
Jacket from her favorite team
Be it NFL, NBA, NCAA or NFL, she’s bound to have a home team she watches faithfully. Head to their online fan store and order a women’s jacket or something else that fits her style. If she’s not into sports at all, simply give her a gift card to your local mall.
And one last note about flowers… they never hurt. Bring them home or send them to her workplace; if the question of flowers is still a question, then the answer is yes. Always, yes!
