Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide: for that Special Someone


While Christmas is an exciting time filled with joy, family and overindulgence, it can often be a stressful ordeal for those unsure about what to get their partner. On the one hand, you don’t want to get them something under-appreciative, but you also don’t want to scare them off with something that’s ‘too much too soon’. So how do you find the perfect gift for that special someone? Whether you’re casually seeing other, officially dating, or in a LTR (long term relationship), you’ll find plenty of inspiration in this ultimate Gift Guide from Etsy Australia.

Just Dating

This stage is for those who have just started dating; you’ve gone on a few dates and you clearly like each other enough to keep it going. While the butterflies are in a flutter, this is still a sensitive time in a relationship so it’s important to choose the right present.

The key is to not get anything too sentimental or reflective of a more serious relationship stage than you’re in. So no expensive watches engraved with your names or tickets to a concert six months from now! Rather, try and get your guy or gal something thoughtful but on a smaller scale. By now you’d have got little snippets of their personality that you can use to understand what they’d like or wouldn’t like. Use these to your power.

Here are Kirsteene’s top gift recommendations for anyone that’s Just Dating.
