Although gifting somebody that you are newly dating is a bit less nerve-wrecking than gifting a crush, there is still an art to it. You don't want to spend too much cash and you also want to make sure you don't outdo them.

This gift should communicate that you listen and take into consideration their hobbies and preferences. Here are some gift ideas if you have just started dating your flame.
