So you just had an amazing first date – AMAZING! – and want to score a second.
Sure, you could call your date and thank him or her for a great time. And you could also send a text. But if you really want to show your budding affection and increase your chances of going out on another date, send a gift. After all, everyone likes gifts, especially when you send the right kind.
If you’re looking for a few first date gifts, here a few ideas.
They smell good and look even better
Gals and guys alike know how to appreciate a beautiful flower arrangement, and it’s easy to order online from Beyond Blossoms. Sending your date a gorgeous arrangement shows you had a wonderful time on the date and can’t stop thinking about it. Surprise them by sending an arrangement to his or her office, or to the home. And make sure you leave a note inside saying you’d love to go out again.
A girl and guy’s best friend
Just about everyone knows a fabulous piece of jewelry is one way to a person’s heart. It doesn’t have to be an expensive ring or necklace; something fun and inexpensive like the trendy jewelry from WhimZ Accessories is the way to go. Flowers in the form of a necklace or even a pair of heart cute earrings is a sure-fire way to get yourself a second date. And for a guy, consider a tie tack or some other small item to say you enjoyed your date.
Almost as sweet as you are
Who doesn’t love chocolate? This sweet treat makes a prefect first date gift. Go for a box of gourmet chocolates from Ghirardelli or something like chocolate-covered strawberries. A luscious and tasty gift such as this is ideal for sending to the office or home. And when your date calls you to thank you for the gift, you can set up your second date.
A dessert encore
Follow your heart and fill the stomach
You know the old saying about the stomach being the way to the heart. And if that’s the case, you’ll certainly get points for sending your date scrumptious cookies or candy from Savannah’s Candy Kitchen. Listen to what they ordered for dessert and send something similar. Did she say she loves chocolate fudge? Did he say he’s crazy about coconut? Is he a kid-at-heart? Sending these tasty morsels to your date lets him or her know you are still thinking of the date and can’t wait to go on another.
A Memorable Token From the Date
Keep your date thinking of you
A cute way to thank your date and to keep your meeting on his or her mind is to send a date-related memento. For instance, if you two shared a beer and she has a sense of humor, send your date a fun beer-related gift from Coors and Company. Did you catch a concert on your date? Send your cutie memorabilia from the band you saw. Or if you got sushi, send a stylish pair of chopsticks. Sending something that was related to your date shows you enjoyed yourself and can’t wait to do it again.
