This is a great question and one where you really have to do some thinking before making a decision. I’m I or are we obligated to give gifts on valentines day?If you’ve been keeping it casual, haven’t said the L word, and haven’t organised any romantic gestures, it’d be a bit weird to suddenly make a huge effort for Valentine’s Day.If you’re unsure as to whether or not you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day, but don’t want to risk upsetting the person you’re dating by giving them nothing, just pick up something small and simple.
I mean, do people really lie on blankets under the stars with partners they're madly in love with?I have been dating my boyfriend for a little bit over 3 months, and in February it will be about four months.I have no idea what to get him for Valentine's day. And please don't tell me I'm not original for asking this question.Keep the dinner and the activity simple, and avoid any fanciness. This allows you to set the tone of the date, and stops him from showing up in a tux with a bunch of roses (which wouldn’t be great if you’re wearing jeans). Similarly, you should set the tone of the gift-giving.Get him something small, like a tie, a video game, or whatever he likes. If he’d misread the seriousness of the relationship, this will give him time to return any huge purchase that he’d picked up in anticipation of the big day (and to cry for a few hours). Make sure it’s over at a reasonable hour, and the guy should understand what that implies.
