eHarmony helps determine the sweet spot between "thoughtful gift" and "too much, too fast."

Once again, 'tis the season for your annual quest to find the perfect Christmas gift for important people in your life. At the best of times, gift-giving can be a strange and stressful mixture of obligation and a genuine desire to show appreciation for the relationship. It's hard enough to get it right with people you know well — close friends and family.

Where do you even start to select a gift for someone you only recently met? And not just "any someone," but a person you think might turn out to be the romantic partner you've been looking for? The key word here is "might." After only a few promising dates, it is still too soon to tell.

 

Suddenly you have a whole new set of things to consider as you shop, beginning with: "Should I give a gift at all? What will it communicate if I do? Should I give something special, to show my growing feelings? Or something ordinary to send the message I'm not moving too fast?"

Here are four tips that will help you hit the sweet spot when buying a gift for someone new in your life: eHarmony: Hope You Like It: Gift-Giving Tips For A New Relationship
