What would I give my boyfriend for Christmas if we have only been dating for 1 month?
By dora from Los Angeles, CA
Make him a friendship bracelet and make an identical one for yourself. It shows a small concern for commitment but nothing too serious. If you aren't sure what a friendship bracelet is PM me.
Since you've only been dating a month, I'd keep it simple. Some cookies or candy homemade or store bought and a card sounds like plenty. It isn't so much that he would be feel bad either if he doesn't have something for you.
Make him some kind of homemade goodies, as others have suggested. You could also buy him a piano and/or camera Christmas ornament and create and attach a tag to the ornament with some type of sentimental message. He will then have one or two keepsake ornaments that will always remind him of you.
I have been relationship for 3 weeks now and Christmas and his birthday are coming up. What can I get him or do for him? I don't know him that well. Please help.

Whatever you decide on, make it something that says you are paying attention to who and what he is into. Music is always a good one to give.
What do I get my skater boyfriend? He's into skateboards and art. I already got him a penny board that he always wanted, but I also want to buy him something else. We have been together for like 3 months and it's going good.
Some kind of art supplies sounds good to me. I'm assuming he likes to create art, not just look at it? Something like a sketch book and charcoal pencils or whatever medium he likes to use.
We have only been dating a few weeks, I have no clue what to get him! He is not into sports or anything. I need help!
All guys like to eat, I'd probably give a gift card to some restaurant or bake him something special. I don't know very many people that would turn down a box of chocolates or fudge.
A guy I dated once, pawned the pair of jeans, Western shirt, belt & belt buckle I gave him for his birthday to buy whiskey. Said he'd have rather had the booze. I never knew clothes could be pawned. This really burnt me on buying guys clothes, from them on.
I starting dating my boyfriend about a week ago. His 18th birthday is on the 20th of this month and I don't really know what to get for him. I am thinking about making him dinner, but I'm not sure what to make. Any gift ideas and easy recipes for a 17 year old girl?

Being that you have been dating for only a short time I wouldn't go to any great lengths for a present. Making Him dinner is more than you would need to do but would be a good present none the less. For that matter I wouldn't even bother with trying to make him something he may not like (since you don't know Him very well).
I have a boyfriend and we were the couple that are best friends and it just led to a relationship. So we've hung out a lot and it's a good relationship, but our 1 month anniversary is coming up and his best friend told me my boyfriend was giving me a gift. I have absolutely no idea what to get him!
He likes old rock like AC/DC, but he already has their CD. I know he likes Michigan State football, and I know some of his favorite candy. I was thinking of giving him a picture frame that hold like 8 pictures and I can fill them with pics of me and him and some of his friends and stuff, but I don't know. I just need ideas. We're both 13, but we're both really mature about our relationship for our age.
Personally, I don't think that one month is an anniversary. I think that it would be best NOT to give a gift. If he gives you something, you should thank him graciously. If you then wish to do something in return, you could bake him cookies or something like that. Excessive gift giving when you are so young (or at the beginning of any friendship/relationship) is not a good idea.
