How to get your significant other the perfect present when you don’t even know him or her that well? Do you even get them one? I don’t really know, although getting one is not a bad idea. A romantic gift will start the night off right for many couples.
With this in mind, let me say hello to married couples, just couples, people who’ve got crushes and anybody who’s in love. Tis the season to spread some love! It’s all fun…the hustle and bustle of it all. From November to February, love is in the air and everyone is in a good mood.
The holidays are like the first three months in a relationship. Peachy, until the bill comes. Hopefully, you got the right people around you to make this holiday season a joyous one. That includes your new Boo.
It’s exciting to have them around, but you’re wondering what to get them and if you will get anything back. Will they misinterpret your gift as an obligation? So many things run through your mind, you’re just unsure. Who doesn’t have trouble getting a gift for their new friend or lover?
Getting a gift for your SO can be pretty intimidating at times especially when you don’t know them very well. Then the question becomes, “Do you get them anything at all?” Well, I’m a giver and I would feel funny not to hand over to someone I was dating even if it was a short time.
I think they are special enough to continue dating, so why not gift a small present?
With that said, it really puts us in a pickle. Don’t worry, though. We’re going to show you how to get your significant other the perfect present. Some of the best gift ideas seem really small and insignificant, but they keep giving all year round.
A useful gift is one that I’d choose to give someone I hardly know. Let’s find out how so we can help you pick the right one. No one wants to see you sad on one of the most exciting events of the year.
How to pick the best gift for boyfriend or girlfriend
Therefore, I’ve laid out a simple, easy-to-follow-plan for you to get your significant other the perfect present the first time. On the other hand, it could be things to get your girlfriend for New Year’s Eve. Take your pick, we’re giving and receiving gifts here as well.
Phase 1: Research
Read through your chats to find out what your partner would fancy as a gift. You know she gave you hints. Check your partner’s Instagram to see whom they follow, which artists they support if you are contemplating on purchasing an album or tickets.
Try to recall those times when your partner has mentioned anything more than once. Both girls and guys, at times, drop subconscious hints about what they like and dislike. Act on these clues.
Ask your partner’s colleagues or friends or anyone you think is close to your partner to get to know more about your love.
At the end of this phase, you’ll have a pretty good understanding of how to get your significant other the perfect present.
Phase 2: Start adding things to your cart
Pause reading! Go online at once and add around ten items or more which fit the description of what you learned from Phase 1.
Phase 3: Play out the scenario
Play the whole thing out in your head. How do you think he/she might react to your gift? This stage is crucial as when you start to visualize how your gift giving might go; you start to see things that you usually don’t. Go with your gut feeling. Your gut usually is right.
Phase 4: Buy gifts

Phase 5: Envision how they will feel
There’s this quote that goes like, “People will forget what you say, but they’ll never forget how you made them feel.” I think this quote is quite applicable in the case of gifts, too.
The gift doesn’t matter much in the long run, but your build up to it is. The little intricate details you give attention to, like the color or the pattern of the wrap, matters. Now, this is how to get your significant other the perfect present.
Yep, you definitely gotta plan a surprise. People tend to remember surprises way more than regular moments. Do whatever you can, but don’t tell anyone who can’t keep secrets. By the way, the presentation is everything. Try this – it’s a cool way to give the gifts to your significant other.
Go over to your partner’s apartment and plant presents for dates to find or just the one you like the most. Plan an adventure hunt where each clue leads to another till your lover or lovers gets the perfect present.
Make your significant other feel loved this new year. Remember that love and respect are deliberate. You gotta put in an effort to make your partner feel loved. One day, you’ll be thinking of gifts for fiance, maybe.
Let’s Wrap Up the Perfect Present
Whatever you do, don’t procrastinate on getting the perfect present. Imagine your partner’s smile diminishing in intensity every time you feel like procrastinating.
All the best, I hope you nail picking out the perfect present and have a great start to the new year 🙂 Procrastination held me down for years, but I learned to procrastinate on procrastination.
