DO: Notice he’s been walking around without proper winter gear?Spring for a pair of cute and affordable gloves from, say, J. DON’T: Run out and buy him a new Barbour coat, a set of Kastle skis, or a 100% real mink trapper hat. Nothing’s better than a homemade batch of holiday cookies or brownies. DO: Plan a gift you can do together—like tickets to a concert, exhibition, or a play.If he is a music lover, choose a set of speakers so that he can listen to his MP3 player without ear buds or a subscription to a satellite radio service.A boyfriend who enjoys traveling will love having the assistance of a global positioning system, or GPS.And not just “any someone,” but a person you think might turn out to be the romantic partner you’ve been looking for?The key word here is “might.” After only a few promising dates, it is still too soon to tell.
DON’T: Make him a mix of the sappiest love songs of all time, get him front-row seats at a sold-out concert, or buy him 0 wireless Beats by Dre headphones.
It’s hard enough to get it right with people you know well—close friends and family.
Where do you even start to select a gift for someone you only recently met?
Select electronics for your partner on your sixth dating anniversary.
For example, if he enjoys reading, select an electronic book reader.
