What does a gal do, who wants a tasteful gift idea for a new love interest but doesn’t want to scare him away or seem like a stalker? Skip the bouquet of flowers, the plants and anything too personal. Instead give him something to eat. Most relationship experts contend that the way to a guy’s heart is through his stomach, so why not give it a shot? While wining and dining him before you’re an exclusive item may send the wrong signal, an edible gift shows thoughtfulness. However, beware that giving an edible gift comes with a few rules.
1) First, determine that he’s a fruit and chocolate fan.
2) Set a spending limit.
Fruit bouquets start at $19.00 and may be as expensive as $250 or more. It is wise to keep the fresh fruit basket budget between $30 and $60.
3) Choose a theme.
If he loves football, baseball or golf, Harry and David, Cherry Moon Farms and the Chocolate Covered Company offer an assortment of sports themed fruit baskets.
Edible Gift Ideas for Him:
- Perhaps, he loves the St. Louis Cardinals, New York Yankees, some other Major League Baseball team or even another sport. In any case, Shari’s Berries features chocolate dipped strawberries, resembling baseballs, basketballs and footballs. (44.99)
- At FruitFlowers.com, a mug branded with popular NFL teams holds a couple dozen chocolate dipped strawberries. (39.99)
- Choose a small sized, cup full of chocolate dipped strawberries, aptly dubbed the “Sweetheart Bouquet” at Edible Arrangements. (35.00)
After choosing an edible gift, don’t forget to add a personal note to the fruit basket.
