How to Pick the Best Gift for Your First Dating Anniversary
Finding the right one-year dating anniversary gift for your girlfriend is important. You want to be sure to send the right message that lets her know how you feel about her and the status of your relationship.
First, you need to think about how serious your relationship is. If you’ve been together for a year already, it is likely pretty serious, but that can mean different things for different people. Have you talked about marriage? Do you both see yourselves together for the long-term?
Thinking about the answers to these questions is important, because it can help you make sure that you choose an appropriate gift. For example, if you’ve both decided that it is unlikely that you’ll end up married to each other, you probably don’t want to get something that hints at marriage.
If you’re not sure how serious your relationship is, you may want to have a heart-to-heart conversation with your girlfriend. You can also read through the items on this guide to get an idea of whether your girlfriend is serious about your relationship.
Next, consider her likes, dislikes, and interests. Does she have a favorite color? Does she play a sport? What is her favorite animal? Where is her favorite place to relax? Answering these questions may give you some inspiration to select a gift based on something she loves.
Another thing you can think about is whether the two of you share any special inside jokes, have traveled somewhere together, or have shared any other special moments. Again, thinking about these things may help you track down something special that will make her think of you and the time you have spent together.
Also, be sure to consider your budget. You don’t have to spend a ton of money to find a gift that will bring a smile to your girlfriend’s face.
Finally, you should think about whether you want to get her something practical that she’ll be able to use, or something more decorative. Thinking about her interests, personality, and available space in her home can help you make this decision.
Once you’ve decided on the perfect gift, don’t forget about a card. You can make the gift extra special by making your own card. This gesture will really let your girlfriend see just how special she is to you.
If you’ve never made your own card before, that’s OK. You don’t have to do anything fancy. A simple note telling her how special she is to you will likely mean the world to her.
