When you've been with someone for over two years, the old tie-and-a-button-down gift is going to start to feel old ... Common sense can solve a lot of gift-giving headaches, it's true. That's why we asked relationship expert and author of "Write Your Own Fairy Tale," Siggy Flicker, to help us make sense of when, how, and what to get that new or not-so-new guy in your life. That's the overall thing," she told in a phone interview. WHAT TO GIFT: A "just because" gift might be a little out of place at this stage in the relationship.
"And always do what your heart desires, even if it feels silly." WHAT TO GIFT: As Flicker told us, "I always think the most special gift you can give is to buy a blank card and fill it up with something that comes from your heart." Keep things cheerful, throw in a witty inside joke, and that first date's practically guaranteed.
