A Gift For The Date

If you want to absolutely crush a first date, get them something with a bit of meaning. Now it doesn’t have to be massive or exy, just a lil somethin, somethin that relates to a joke or convo you’ve had in the lead up to the date. Don’t know what I mean? I once dated someone who was obsessed with coriander (no thanks). It was a common topic of banter so I rocked up with a ‘bouquet’ of the stuff. Boom. Go back through your messages, find that one thing and win the dating game.
