Christmas gift ideas for someone you’ve just started dating

What can you buy that won’t freak them out, but still says you care? Here are some ideal presents for the man/woman you’ve only just started seeing.

The situation: you’ve started a new relationship in the past couple of weeks / months, and you know that Christmas is coming. You panic. What do you do? Let’s discuss:

Do you buy them a present if you’ve only started seeing each other?

This is the first thing that you’ll consider. Do you or don’t you? Some might argue yes, depending on how close you’ve grown or how many dates you’ve had, some might say no. Others might consult a gift buying rulebook. Honestly, I think the answer is simple enough.

It’s yes.
