Recently, I went out with this new guy who had returned from Comic-Con and at the end of the date gave me a really cute fangirl box he picked up for me. I thought it was really nice how he thought about me and was wondering if I should return the gesture or just leave it be? We planned a second date this week and he mentioned the movies, and I have some movie tickets that I won. Should I offer a movie ticket to him as a way of saying thanks or would that seem like I'm trying too hard? Thanks!

I think better is just let him know how much you appreciated that fangirl box specifically, but it's a pretty good idea to offer those movie tickets you won for the next date (not as a way of saying "thanks" for the box, but just because it's convenient that you have some movie tickets). Put another way, don't offer the tickets as a way of "thanks", just expressing your appreciation for that box is going to make him feel happier, but do offer the tickets.1

I think that's awesome. It's not like you're giving him a car or anything that would scream, woah, too much too soon, but some FREE movie tickets you won are great. Who the heck wouldn't like that. If it bothers you, just don't make a big deal out of it, just say, hey got some movie tickets, do you want to come. That's it.2
