Gift Ideas For Girlfriend (Girls)
I obviously like getting presents and would never turn one down, but when it comes to The 5 Love Languages — "Words of Affirmation, Acts of Service, Receiving Gifts, Quality Time, and Physical Touch" — "receiving gifts" is lowest on my list. Or maybe you don't get each other presents at all, because you're semi anti-gift like me. But rather than continue to ruminate on all of the different amounts of money one could spend on an anniversary, I spoke to matchmaker and dating coach Karenna Alexander to get her expert opinion on how much one should spend on a first dating anniversary.
You Should Spend Within Your Means For some of us, "within your means" means that trip to Iceland, while for others, it means dollar wing night. Added reason to spend little-to-nothing and simply is $50 too much for a dating anniversary gift a nice note or card: the traditional gift to celebrate a first anniversary is paper.
But You Should Do Something Investing in an expensive gift or big travel plans almost feels like it would put too much pressure on a first anniversary.
