I love giving gifts although it is a general consensus that women should NOT give gifts to men they are only dating because it seems desperate and overreaching and will end up causing him to take you for granted. If he does this by the way, dump him! But back to the original question, my advice on this topic is as follows: Give him something consumable, edible or drinkable. Something you can enjoy together such as a bottle of a favorite champagne or wine make sure he opens it and drinks it with you, not stashes it away for some future date he may have with someone else. If he loves Tiramisu, hit the bakery and grab a little tiramisu and put a bow on it. Time it so it is something you can eat or drink together after a date that same night perhaps. Stay away from electronics, clothing, jewelry, tickets to sports games, spa days or anything of the kind.

We have been out 4 times, taking things very slowly, but we have talked about valentines day and she is expecting a gift.

I know I can do chocolates, but she is actively working on losing a little weight and counts calories, is running almost daily to counter what she eats for total calories.
So I don’t want to give her something that is counter-productive to that goal she has. We have spent a great deal of time talking to each other about a great many things and there is some chemistry going on here that I am expecting to develop into something more there is just some additional issues to deal with that I am going to also post about in a separate topic So mulling over ideas.
