Buying gifts isn’t an activity most guys enjoy. And it’s even worse when you’re buying a gift for someone you like but don’t know very well. Get her something super inexpensive and you come off looking like a stingy tightwad. And jumping the gun by blowing your paycheck on a expensive jewelry is inappropriate (and financially irresponsible).

What’s a guy to do?

In a perfect world, you could always control the timing of a relationship – you know, be sure you’ve been dating for a substantial amount of time before her birthday or any major holidays roll around. It just doesn’t always work that way.

Add in the times you are itching to surprise her with a small token of your growing affection and you are stuck coming up with a gift that won’t scare her with implications (that means plastic surgery is out), that is still meaningful and won’t look too cheap or lazy.

The good news here? It’s actually easier than you’re making it out to be — and exerting a little effort can go a long way. Gifts for a new girlfriend might take a lot of thought, but are usually fairly easy on the wallet, man purse, or pocketbook (hey, we’re not judging). Giving your girlfriend meaningful gifts right from the start lays a foundation for thoughtfulness in the relationship. With any luck, she’ll return the favor and get you good gifts as well.

The key to the perfect gift for a new girlfriend is finding something with significance to her specifically or to your relationship. These kinds of gifts show you care, which is the goal in the first place. Because every woman and every relationship is different, there is no one-size-fits-all present. Instead, there are five types of meaningful gifts for your new girlfriend.

It's a great place to start your search and get you thinking.

The Gift Insider (Mon, 08 Apr 2013 17:47:08 +0000): We recommend something little to start out with, little gifts related to inside jokes, souvenirs from business trips, edible treats. Play it cool at the beginning, save the puppies and $$ gifts for later on...you can't set the bar too high at the beginning :) we have a whole post on ideas: http://bit.ly/17bnJ3K.
