Last night a friend of mine frantically called me asking for advice. He just started dating a great girl two weeks ago and it looks promising enough to last well into the holidays so he has to get her a Christmas present. But what should he get? This question, and the new Target commercial where a guy gives a girl a seemingly expensive necklace over dinner and she says something like, "I didn't think we were at that level yet" made me realize for many people buying presents for a brand new boyfriend or girlfriend is a daunting and delicate task and can often make or break the budding romance.
I know I'm a little late to help out with Hanukkah presents but here is my 5-step gift giving guide for people in new relationships, which I define as dating for 6 months or less.
If you heed this advice you are bound to have a joyous gift giving experience. Good luck and happy holidays!
