At the end of the day, it really is the thought that counts, so why not pick something out that's thoughtful and personal, even if that ends up being a card.
You don't need to buy your date a 0 face cream (hello, La Mer!I think this is a great time to drop a little dough."If you're in a longer or very long and serious relationship, [you] can go for the Hollywood dinner if that's [your] style," Salkin adds.) but you will likely end up spending some money on them, even if it's just the money you spend taking them to dinner (hello, ladies of 2018! The best gifts are not always the most expensive ones, so you don't need to worry about dropping all of your savings on tickets to impress your partner.Still, you don't want to overspend on someone who might dump you in a week, or underspend on someone who presents you with a beautiful succulent (always a winner over flowers, IMO). You might start feeling all of the "how serious is this going to be" fears, but if you are into your partner, I think you should take a stand and declare your feels by spending a solid amount on a gift for them.
