‘Tis the season of gifting and now that bae’s in your life, you have one more person to shop for. Now what the hell do you get them? Welcome to the Holi-Bae gift guide.
Gifts for Dating 1 Month
One month isn’t a long time, so you don’t want to go crazy with the gift. Something small shows you took the time to consider them, and bonus points if its themed to something small you’ve learned about your bae. This is already a tricky spot to be in, fun and casual are the key. Repeat, FUN and CASUAL.
The Gentleman’s deck of cards offers a unique take on a seemingly uninspired gift, and it’ll surely be a hit next time he’s playing poker with his buddies (or Kings).
Candles are never really a bad idea, but pair with a card or an additional small item to make it feel less generic.
Gifts for Dating 6 Months
His or Hers:
Gift each other an experience. Concert tickets, sporting event tickets, or a local day trip to their favorite food festival. At this point you know you’ll likely be going to them together and it’ll be a fun experience for the two of you to bonding over.
Gifts for Dating 1 Year
Solidly committed. You’re past the honey moon phase and it’s not just a long term situationship. This is BAE for real, and trust your gut you know what to get him or her. But in case you need a little inspiration:
Coordinate jewelry serves as a nice romantic gesture. Plus you can customize it to whatever coordinates you’d like: where you met or where she was born. Or you could be super romantic and make them the coordinates of a place she’s been dying to go that you’ve planned on taking her! (You’re welcome.)
Gifts for Dating 1+ Years
Let’s be real, if you don’t know what to get your BAE at this stage in the game, I don’t think I can help you. However, I can say that it’s easy to fall into the practical gift giving cycle here. So don’t. Maybe she needs a new laptop case or he desperately needs a new shaver. By all means, get it, but don’t forget to add a little romance to the mix. Something kind and meaningful goes a long way, and only YOU know what that is.
