    What are some good little gifts to bring to your date? Something not expensive and just simple.

    I usually bring wine, for the both of us.
    Sometimes some candy.

    Maybe a single rose?

    What are some good ideas? He's going to be cooking for me this time...

    We're going very slow. Been seeing each other since January...but in general I like to bring something small with any date because I think it adds a little excitement to it all.

    We're still sorta "going on dates" because theres a significant age difference between us and so we have to take it slow to really figure things out.

    When you say significant age difference, I take it he is older, since you are only twenty-five ..... maybe a tank of oxygen icon_lol.gif .... just kidding ...
    a little wind chime or stained glass piece you can hang at a desk or in a window ... It will keeping him thinking about you icon_wink.gif

    For me, wind chimes are right up there with car alarms. LOL.

    yourname2000 saidI agree with the wine. Rather than candy, I'd suggest dessert for the meal. And personally I'd avoid flowers...you never know who's allergic to them. And roses are a bit presumptuous/pushy to me...best reserved for special occasions AFTER you two are an item, imo.



    I always think flowers are so expensive for something that will die in a matter of days. Personally, I'd rather a guy went to a garden center and bought me an actual rose bush - it's the gift that keeps on giving and its probably cheaper!! icon_lol.gif

    Of course, only someone unorthodox like me would be swooning over such a thing!

    God I wish a guy would bring my baked goods on a friggin date. I'd probably be so happy I'd ask him to marry me throughout the whole date. LOL

    I would say if he is going to be cooking, I would bring a cute little 6 inch cake (his favourite) that you guys could enjoy after dinner and still have a lil left over for him to eat and enjoy after the date icon_smile.gif

    I think wine is as good as you're going to get... Candy... Flowers... I think it's too cheesy for me. I wouldn't know what to do with a flower...

    If it's for a dinner, either a dessert or a nice center piece.

    But as for general gifts it can range from chocolates and wine to flowers or other romantic things.

    Wow! a man after my own heart! a true romantic and practical to beat! on our 6th date while dating my current boyfriend bought me a hardy mum plant. I planted it in my front garden, and it is still going strong, it survived the winter! love it! one of the nicest present I've ever gotten from a date!!

    I'd find out what he's cooking for the main course (fish, chicken, beef) and pick out a great wine to go with whatever he's preparing. Do you know if he's got wine glasses? Most people have them, but if he doesn't -- bring two along. You might be wise to bring an opener along as well - - - just in case. You want to cover all bases. You can always take the opener and glasses home, if you want.

    Have fun. Let us know how it went!

    Bring yourself, showered and dressed appropriately. Anything else seems a little weird the first date. After that, something he mentioned he likes. Shows you care and paid attention!

    I agree - - for a first date..........but the O.P. said they've been dating since January (when he came back and posted again for clarification).

    Since they've been dating since January I think wine is always a good choice. Very sweet, also, I might add.

    what about a little trinket specific to the date... you go to a carshow, get him a matchbox car... You go to a casino, get him a scratcher.

    After a year, you get a picture of the two of you in a shadow box and put all the crap you got him into it.

    Cute lil mementos.
