I just started dating this guy 3 weeks ago. His birthday is October 8 and he is turning 22. I want to get him something really amazing. Any ideas?

Suggestion: Don't make it too amazing. He may think you are getting too close too soon. You don't want to scare him away. What is he interested in? Sports? That would be your answer, and it would also let him know you are really thinking and listening to him. A hobby? Again something to add to his collection or help him do whatever he loves to do. Really listen to him and find out more about him and then go from there. The listening is the best thing you could give him. (09/08/2009)
I agree, nothing amazing or you'll come across as a little more serious than he may be. Personally, I wouldn't do more than mailing a card or e-mailing a simple happy birthday. (09/09/2009)
And if you do amazing this early on he may take that as "she's an easy mark" and take advantage of you and mooch :-( There's no way to truly know a person and how they think so early on, so just give him a nice card and "maybe" an inexpensive meal. (09/09/2009)
Three weeks dating is too soon for amazing. Also, before anyone can give a good suggestion, we need to know more about a person. Some guys like cars, some are into clothes, some sports, some art, well you get the picture. This way you can get a gift without getting too "amazing" he might enjoy. Example, baseball hat from the team he likes, a shirt, poster, or drawing pad, car waxing kit, the list goes on when you know the person well. (09/09/2009)
Wow, rainy21 said it so well. I agree with all you said. A generic gift may not get the "amazing" factor. Does a 3 week relationship even warrant "amazing"? Find out what he collects. Favorite store? (09/10/2009)
