    You've only been an official "couple" for a few days or weeks or months, and along comes high-pressure Valentine's Day to test your relationship! If you want to show your new bae you care, but also don't want to overwhelm them, here are some ideas.

    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!
