Most Helpful Girl
I think early on if you're getting a lot of gifts, the guy wants something more than perhaps you're willing to give. He may think you owe him somewhere down the road. Otherwise, I think a few are okay, but me personally I don't need gifts to impress me. I'd much rather the guy is just a nice gentleman. I will say though, it is 100,000 times more impressive to me for a guy to either make something or to get something totally unexpected. A guy I was dating, went to Mexico and when he came back he'd brought me some soil and a rock on which an artist had painted a scene from the town he visited. It was totally awesome because we'd been joking about the worst gifts ever, and I'd told him this story about a guy who bought his wife dirt and rocks for valentines day because she liked to garden. The gift just made us both laugh. I thought it was cool.
