Gift Ideas On Your First Date
A first date is often a stressful situation.
Both you and your partner may be nervous about the
date and one way to break the ice and alleviate the tension immediately
is to bring a gift for your date. The gift does not have to
be extravagant and in fact it is advisable that you keep your
gift simple because something that is too expensive or ornate
could embarrass your date. Whether you opt for a simple gift
such as flowers or decide to present your date with something
more original that relates to their personality, you are likely
to make a good first impression by surprising them with a present.
If you don't know much about your date, you can't go wrong
with bringing flowers along on the date. You do run the risk
that they would be allergic to flowers but if you are picking
them up at their home, they are able to leave the flowers behind
as the two of you go on your date. Even if they dispose of
the flowers due to their allergies, they will appreciate the
thoughtfulness of the gift. When giving flowers on a first
date, you might choose an arrangement of flowers such as daisies,
carnations and other colorful flowers. A gift of roses may
seem too romantic of a gift for a first date but choosing a
flower arrangement of other flowers can be a lovely gift.
Candy is another classic first date gift idea. You can bring
an assortment of chocolates or even a more whimsical basket
filled with some of your childhood favorites. This gift idea
gives you the opportunity to bring your date a gift that reflects
your personality. If you choose to create a candy basket, you
could include some of your favorite candies and take the opportunity
to explain why you chose each of the items. This not only gives
you a lovely gift idea but provides you with a conversation
starter as well.
If you know that your date is someone who enjoys reading and
writing you could give them a gift that relates to their interests. A journal and an elegant pen are an excellent gift idea for
a date that enjoys writing. It lets you know that you were
listening when the two of you spoke and that you understand
that writing is important to them. A stylish version of a classic
novel is also a great gift idea for a date that enjoys literature.
For example a leather bound copy of a novel that your companion
mentioned that they enjoy is a great gift idea. Even if they
already have the book it is unlikely that they have a copy
that is worthy of being displayed in their home.
A cute gift idea for a date with a partner who enjoys sports
is tickets to a local sporting event. This is a great idea
because it demonstrates that you understand their interests
and already plants the idea in their head that you would be
interested in a second date. This is an especially good idea
if the person you are going on a first date with is someone
that you know fairly well and that you are relatively sure
that you would want to date again.
Still another idea for a gift to give on a first date is a homemade
craft item. If you have a talent for woodwork, leather
crafts, candle making or some other craft you might consider
making a gift to give to your partner on your first date. This
is an excellent idea because it gives you the opportunity to
display your talents and when your date asks you where you
got the item you have an instant conversation starter because
you can tell them about how you made the item. Explaining the
process of creating the craft can help to ease the tension
by allowing you to open up while talking about something that
you are passionate about.
Although you are not required to bring a gift
on a first date, it is not a bad idea. Presenting your date with a gift is a
good way to start the date off on a positive note and can be
the key to getting the conversation started. It also gives
you the opportunity to demonstrate that you already know a
little about your date or to give them the opportunity to learn
a little about you. The key to giving first date gifts is to
choose simple items that are special to you or your date.
