Greetings everyone! This is my first official post although I have been a frequent visitor of the site for many months now.

So I have recently found myself in a new relationship right before the holidays and was wondering if you guys had any input on what type of gift to get a girl that you've only been seeing/dating for about a month.

A little background, we're both 21. We met through mutual friends and have gone on multiple dates over the past couple of weeks. Our relationship right now is a little bit long distance (2 hours drive) so when we do see each other it is usually over the weekend. I want a gift that doesn't come off as too serious seeing as the relationship is still early.

-Happy Holidays

Do you have any idea what she does in her free time?

Well she currently works two jobs so she doesn't have tons of free time. But what I know so far is she spends a lot of time with her family, she's a big disney movie fan. She snowboards, spends time with her two dogs, likes to cook...

I've yet to meet a woman who didn't appreciate something sparkly. 

You're my twin!
I met my, now, wife on 11/13/2001 at a singles mingle. We went out a few times and she invited me to her house on Thanksgiving. That Christmas I was in the same conundrum you find yourself in. She loves, and I mean LOVES, anything Disney. I found a Disney movie that she didn't have and bought the video for her, she loved it. I also bought a little something for her two children.

There's a Disney store in Hamilton and Mississauga. You could go there and tell the sales clerk exactly what you've said here. Likely recommendations would be costume jewelry, a snow globe, or a figurine.

Partly because my mother cluttered my life with junk growing up, I appreciate any gift of quality. Keep that in mind with my recommendations. Don't get the cheapest ones you can find, get the best you can afford.

*costume jewelry

*business card case

*cloth grocery bag

*Fargo/trapper hats are apparently in this season, but I don't like them

*artisan ingredients (specialty tea, coffee, chocolate, salt, lentils, pasta, etc.)

*scarf, gloves

*specialty cookbook (the one I want right now is Roman Jewish food)

Holy hell.  I have such an awesome bigoted/racist joke right here.

- Gift basket of lotions and bath salts.

- Box wine.

- Fruit cake.

- Gloves.

- A dressing gown.

- Diet recipe book.

- A frying pan.

- Anal beads.

- Something you like.

- Anything off the "As Seen on Tv" rack at Walmart.

- A music CD

hmm, this time I'm pretty sure you're being facetious.

@ OP. I found this Disney mug on Amazon. I'm not a big Disney fan, and even I like it. They have other characters, too. I liked Tigger also.

So this and maybe a scarf. I've seen some nice ones at Target.

Was it the fruit cake which gave it away?

Well, the fruitcake made me suspicious. By the time I got to the frying pan, I was highly suspicious. But everything after that confirmed it. lol

After reading OPs second post, frying pan and gloves wouldn't be a bad idea.

I still don't think a frying pan would make a good gift. It'd be different if they met at cooking school and intended to spend time together learning how to make crepes, but lacking that, I just don't think so.

"Yeah, you're real sorry for the imagery, which is why you typed it up and hit the "add reply" button.  Per the site rules, keep politics (including your bizarre sexual fantasies about right-wing talking heads) off the main forum."
