For gift giving, my rule is $25 per 3 months of dating. (EX: dating 3 months – $25, dating 6 months $50, dating 2 years $200, etc) You shouldn’t spend more than that because you don’t want to scare them off early with a gift that’s too elaborate. Also, if you end up breaking up (God forbid), you won’t kick yourself for “wasting money”. Here are 5 Brilliantly Frugal gift ideas that won’t break the bank at each stage of the relationship. The best part is that all of them are available on Amazon Prime!
1. Try a Funny Gift!
At the beginning of a relationship, you may not know all of their likes and interests, but you may have an inside joke that you share. Any gift that puts a smile on their face would be a great gift.
2. Gift Something You Can Use Together!
Do you like to go camping together? Or do you frequent the drive-in movies? This two-person sleeping bag is perfect for snuggling!
3. Is Your Significant Person a Techy?
They would love a home assistant if they don’t already have one.
Brilliantly Frugal Tip: Always buy electronics Refurbished. They are a fraction of the price, have gone through a lengthy Quality Control process, and come with a warranty.
