Times have changed, so first date gifts don’t matter as much anymore. Still, one Reddit reader wanted to know what to bring after she asked a man on a date.
She got lots of great suggestions for gifting in the age of online dating.
DO bring something homemade:
“My last girlfriend made me a home made dessert and it really choked me up at how thoughtful she was.” -blacktide777
DON’T worry too much about coming up with a gift, even if you think you need one:
“[Bring] yourself ! that’s enough for a guy :)” -mchlhrz
DO consider bringing flowers, even if it’s for a man:
“Lots of guys like flowers too! My ex lost his mind whenever I showed up with flowers. Depends on the guy tho.” -sunflower_leo
“flowers is okay. Continue breaking down gender roles.” -Ad_hale2021
DO reference an inside joke, like the poster of the thread ended up doing:
“I always tell him how good he looks in a suit and I found a candle called “suit and tie”. It’s perfect” -Minytrini
Now that you know what to do with dating and gifts, learn more about great first date conversation skills!
