When going on first dates, many men are unsure what to buy a girl as a gift. Furthermore, they are worried about being too cheap. Here are 10 first date gift ideas that are inexpensive. It is the actual thought that will matter in this case.
Almost all girls love flowers, especially roses on the first date. Just remember not to buy too cheap as the flowers may die early. There is a superstition that stipulates that the life of roses depend on the affection between the guy giving the roses and the girl receiving them.
2. Stuffed Toy:
Many girls love stuffed toys. They use them as a decoration in their room and as a pillow to put their head on. If you go on a date at a carnival, you could always win the stuffed toy for the date. If you bought a rose, a small stuffed toy goes well with it.
3. Buy/Rent a Movie:
You should ask the girl what movie she loves to watch before buying it. Once you know her favourite movie genre, buy or rent a film for both of you to enjoy. It is always good to buy a romantic movie….but ask just in case.
Start out small on the first date, especially when it is a blind one. Treat the girl to coffee or tea as a starter. After discussing your plans over coffee/tea, you can always ask her out for more (i.e., lunch or dinner) and continue your date there. I once had 3 events in one first date: coffee, lunch and bonfire. It worked out just fine. Take things gradually.
If you are going to your first prom, it is always good to buy a girl a corsage. If you want to be more generous, buy the girl a corsage and a rose.
If you are picking your date up at her house or apartment, never go empty handed. Bring a bottle of wine with you to give to her. It shows that you appreciate the time she spends with you.
If it is Valentine’s Day and you are on the first date, bring a box of chocolates. Just be sure to ask if she likes chocolate and sweets. You never know what her restrictions are. DO NOT buy chocolates that are sold in convenience stores. Be more tactful.
It is a positive gift that shows a man’s affection. It is mystical and can always lead into different avenues.
If you know what the girl is reading, you can always buy her favourite book or a book you both love to read. It could be a great Valentine’s first date gift.
10. Pay for the date:
There is no better way to say this. PAY FOR THE DATE! That is the best gift you can give a girl you go on a date with for the first time.
