I recently met a man that I like very much. We're at the just dating stage. We will be spending the holidays together. I want to buy a fun gift that's appropriate and personal, but am on a limited budget.

For me, it would be either bake something (breads or cookies), wrapped real pretty or buy or acquire tickets to an event that you would both attend together! It can be as inexpensive as movie tickets.
Choose something that relates to a hobby or that simply says you care. A bag of gummy worms attached to a new book for the "bookworm", a container made to look like a medicine bottle filled with chocolates (label it vitamin "C") for a chocoholic, or even a jar of Hershey's "hugs" and "kisses". You are only limited by your imagination.
How about tickets to a movie, play, ice capades, etc? Or maybe some lottery tickets. Also, if you buy him a Bible, he'll think twice about how he treats you.

What about two tickets to something that you would like to go to, too.
yeah, me and my boyfriend have been together for almost a year now so here are some of the things that i have done..or am going to do.
1. a bulid-a-bear with a phrase recorded by you
2. symbolic meaning to the two of you...ex. the veery first time my bf and i kissed, he missed...lol lame but it was the cutest thing ever... so for a gift he made a shirt that said "hugs and misses"
3.prove to him how well you know him by getting tickets to his fav band or going to see his favorite movie...or my personal favorite....to his favorite resturant.
4.home made!...crafts made by show show you care...buying something isnt nearly important as a custom made craft from you to him.
We have a long distance relationship. For our second month, I gave him a stack of wallet-sized pictures of us and placed it in a shiny metal case. I thought it would be handy because he could take pictures of us and place it in his wallet if he wants. For our third month, I ordered a silver plated fortune cookie and I wrote a quote inside for him. You can order edible fortune cookies and customize it, but I wanted him to have something he can keep.
I just started seeing this guy and I'm stuck on what to get him for Christmas. I think something meaningful is key. What I'm thinking of doing is getting a Acura key chain (that was the type of car he had before he got into an accident and had to write off his car) and putting his name and the model of the car because he loved that car more then anything. Just an idea though!
