Christmas Present

Every year, there is a familiar panic among young men scurrying towards gift shops in a wild chase for the perfect gift to give to the one they love. Short of shouting “What the hell do I get her?” the panic never seems to subside until after the quarrel that ensues for being the thoughtless boyfriend that they are.

She is an engineer, should I give her safety equipment with construction Christmas card to pair to show her that I care about her? There will be a lot of questions to ask and there will be quite few answers until you get settled in the relationship. This article will try to help you find the best Christmas present to give to your girl for the festive season.



Present to Give the Girl You Love on Christmas 



It is a balancing act

Finding the right gift is not always as easy as it seems even for the couples who are already familiar with each other. Any of the major gift giving occasions, whether it be a birthday, anniversary, valentines or Christmas, will always be fraught with peril.

If you are still at the early stages of dating or courtship, gift giving is not just a means to capture her heart but a standard that you are setting for the relationship if it should blossom. If you spend too much or give her something that you know that she would die for, you could be having a hard time topping that the next time you have give her a gift.

However, if you spend too little, you risk losing her for seeming thoughtless or cheap. Gift giving is a balancing act and you should try to tread in the middle for as much as you can especially in the early days of the relationship.

Price and Relationship Formula

Figuring out the budget that you have to set for the gift is the first step and it is the trickiest part. No matter which gift you choose to give her in the end, it will be carrying a message that tells her how you feel about her. A gift is not just a gift and girls are quite keen and easily picks up on this, fortunately for you.

If that got you excited, you have to hold your horses down for a moment. As said earlier, the process of figuring it out is not easy. Going too strong at the beginning like gifting her something outrageously expensive might scare her and think of you as needy and desperate.

A grand romantic gesture does not show that you are romantic but rather shows that you are trying to rush things without even knowing her well enough. It is scary and creepy and will end the relationship even before it started.

Most of the time, hopeless romantics start off with these kinds of gesture. And usually ends up in tears yet the brave bastards never seem to learn. For instance, a friend of mine gave a girl a ring for Christmas yet they only met on the 12th of December. I had to console the poor guy but at least he has learned his lesson.

Luckily for you, relationship length and price correlates and figuring out what budget to set aside for a gift has been drilled to a science. If you have just met her and have went out on a few dates for a month, you should spend no more than a day’s worth of pay for a gift. You double that after spending six months with her then double that again in a year. It is not exactly rocket science and with experience, you will get the hang of it.

If you want to go more specific, here are the gifts that you can give her depending on how long you have known each other.

One month of dating. Give her a card for sure as those are cheap yet meaningful. Think about getting her a bottle of her favorite wine or treating her to a home cooked meal. Not only will you be giving her a gift, but you get to spend some time with her as well.

Three months. During this time, you have to consider how often you see each other so you could at least gauge the relationship you are in. If you see each other quite often and seem to genuinely like each other then you could spend a few more as a way of relaying that exact information to her. If you think it is fading however, it will not be worth it to spend the money in trying to save it. You will just be going back to being the creepy grand gesture guy.

A year. Here is where it gets really serious and you will have to up your game. Not only should your gifts be valuable. It should be meaningful and be treated as an opportunity to express your love to her. By the way, if you got this far, you might want to consider giving her an engagement ring as a present the next time.

Research like you mean it

Nothing sours a courtship more than not knowing the interests of the person you are courting. If she was actually a programmer, wouldn’t it be silly to give her a construction Christmas card. If she is an athlete and fitness means much to her, then you can give her a yoga mat knowing that flexibility can reduce the effects and chances of injuries. And if she likes to cook, then a new knife won’t seem like a bad idea. Or if she actually does work in construction, then that construction Christmas card might not be such a bad idea after all.

Giving a gift to the one you love can be one of the most satisfying feeling that anyone can experience. And as they say, the only possession that you can truly keep are the ones that you give away.
