Every girl likes to be made to feel special....I think she would be disappointed if you didn't do something.....since you two seem to have established a regular dating pattern. One other suggestion: chocolate covered strawberries. Flowers prices are so outrageously jacked up for Valentines that wouldn't even be an to know what to suggest as it depends on the woman involved - what she enjoys/her outlook you have a 'fun' relationship and she has an easy going sense of humour, then a novelty box of candy/chocolates could be nice - shaped like a cartoon character/whatever...Personally, I'm not a big fan of the standard V-day gifts--something as simple as a hand-picked flower or personalized according to something I liked would go much further with me.... and a funny card..she's a romantic, then a single rose (only red if you're professing love - romantics often read a lot into rose colour) with a sweet card, could workif you know that she loves a certain author or director, then a book or movie by that particular person, might be niceif she enjoys particular activities, then an evening based around that would show your thoughtfulness - ie.Should I do anything special because of V-day like get her a box of chocolates, or would that be like coming across too strong? In a nutshell, at this stage of dating, what are most likely her expectations?
You're not close enough to plan a trip to Aruba together, nor are you close enough to give him an electric tweezer to take care of his stray hairs. Nothing says, "I'm still getting to know you," like making an extended offer to combine liquors, and nothing says, "we aren't quite at the sweatpants and wine phase in our relationship yet," like making an effort to learn how to make fancy-schmancy cocktails together. They're less creepy than a tattoo of his initials less expensive!
But just because you aren't comfortable manscaping him (…yet), doesn't mean you have to get him something lame for Valentine's Day. It's also a subtle way to clear out his souvenir shot glass cabinet for some whiskey and bitters. And each of the above has its perks: At a concert, you can dance like maniacs together and bond over your sweet, sweet dance moves. There's a reason tha hardcover books make great gifts, and no, that reason is not "they look soooo good on my built-in bookshelf." They can provide you with amazing, smart, interesting, provocative conversation. Bottom line: Reading is sexy, and always will be.12. OK, maybe nobody says that, but a quirky mug that can give a coffee drinker a chuckle in the morning is a pretty good (and not crazy-expensive) gift.
Seriously, you don’t want to have any regrets once you wake up on February 15 and your thoughts are perhaps a little less clouded by Cupid.
Basically, don’t let the calendar dictate your relationship or you’ll be a total ball of awkward stress (just like freshman me).
But here I was in the first week of February with a cool guy, but no real clear definition of what was happening. I guess I thought that if we were a real BF/GF, I would immediately know what to buy him for Valentine’s Day. Being a college freshman, I had no means to get anywhere off campus, so since we had only been dating for officially 36 hours, I ended up with… However, despite being in the same boat as me, he somehow managed to get me candy and a card. So much for this awesome plan to be dating on Valentine’s Day!
