1. Put yourself in their shoes. Think of their personality and what they like— are they introverted or extroverted, do they have a distinct style (say, boho or sporty), do they have any interests, like dogs, or football, or reading?
2. Be yourself. If you're a complete romantic, don't be afraid to get something mushy, or if you're naturally funny, get something that's a bit goofy.
3.Reference a fun, inside joke, a special interest of theirs, or a cute nickname. You can do this either with the gift itself or in the accompanying card. For instance, a friend got their bae who loved chai a card that said "hey hot-tea." If you've discussed going hiking together sometime, get them a cute cap or socks, saying you've enjoyed getting to know them and can't wait to do this together!
4. Don't feel like you've to get something ultra-expensive. Keep it chill and affordable for you.
It's the thought that counts. The right boo will appreciate whatever you get!
