Dating Gift Ideas


Whether it’s your first date or you have been seeing your sweetheart for a long time, nothing does more for putting some zing into the evening’s romance than a sweet gift. Dating gift ideas can give you that one extra surprise that can lower her resistance to your advances and make her heart open up to you.

The key to great dating gift ideas is to know your date and to use the element of surprise effectively. Even if you give her a gift every time you go on a date, by using a lot of creativity and craftiness, she will spend her hours leading up to the date wondering just what you are up to this time.

For a first or second date, the standard gifts of chocolates, perfume or flowers are always a hit. Part of why a gift works so well is that it is something that stays with your sweetheart after you go home. So when she sees or uses that gift, her thoughts turn fondly to you. If she tastes a chocolate late at night after having a wonderful date hours earlier, you might even get a late night phone call from a happy, cooing lover whose heart just filled back up with fond feelings for you while enjoying your thoughtful gift.

But some great dating gift ideas are ones that are not obvious and catch your sweetheart completely off guard. Sending a dozen red roses to her office the day of the date with a message that just says, "I can’t wait until we are together tonight" is a gift that will have her smiling nonstop until she sees you to reward your thoughtfulness with a big hug or kiss. This kind of gift has a double punch because any girl loves to get flowers at a place where the other girls can go ooh and aww and ask her who the special guy is in her life.

Some great dating gift ideas happen as the date unfolds. You can get her a single stemmed rose that is being sold at the fine restaurant you took her too. She will blush and enjoy that flower for the entire date and for days afterward as well.

But be on the lookout for special little surprise gifts you can give even on those low key dates. Buy her a special romantic card and keep it tucked away to spring as the date unfolds to completely surprise her with your thoughtfulness. Or even if your date is just shopping at the mall, get her a teddy bear from the toy store while she is somewhere else for a moment and surprise her when she comes back to you. All of a sudden, a low key date becomes high stakes romance in her mind.

Keep in mind that some of the best gift ideas are not things at all. For a woman, a thoughtful gesture means as much as a trinket or candy. You might surprise her by cooking a meal that you are good at and serving it in your home. By fixing up the place with flowers and candles and then sitting her down to a fine meal prepared just by you just for her, you have a setting for intimate romance and loving that can go on for hours without ever leaving your apartment.

Just by taking the time to think about some creative ways to surprise your date with a wonderful gift, you put that extra sizzle into the relationship that can make each date a romantic adventure. And by showing her you care and want to put that sizzle in the romance, she knows you are the one she wants to reward with the kind of sizzle you are looking for as well. And that is what makes dating exciting and fun for both of you.

Dating Tip #1

Be Prepared – Some great dates are the ones that are spontaneous, but if you make every date spontaneous then things are bound to go wrong! Take the time to think through your date, plan for any problems like taking an umbrella with you if it is a long walk to the car and the sky looks bleak, or make sure that the restaurant you are going to does not have a hen night on when you are going for a quiet romantic meal…

Dating Tip #2

Chivalry Is A Must – If you are a man then you should be chivalrous and hold the door for your date, let her order first, pull out her chair – be a gentleman! If you are a woman then you have to let him! It is no wonder that the old fashioned manners and politeness are dying out when people are so stubborn they think it is wrong to let others hold the door or pay the bill!

Dating Tip #3

Make Eye Contact – Although some people feel uncomfortable with making eye contact, it is eye contact that shows you are interested in your date. People tend to keep eye contact when listening but not when talking to someone, try to make eye contact whenever possible (if you are interested in them that is!).
