Coming up with birthday gift ideas for a guy you just met isn't always easy. It is likely that you don't know much about him and have no idea what he needs or wants. However, first impressions are lasting impressions. If you have an interest in this guy and you see him as potential boyfriend, get him something he will enjoy.
Give Him a Card With a Message
Stop by your local party store and purchase an assortment of helium birthday balloons. Add a birthday card with a message inside that expresses your interest in getting to know him better. Consider using one of the following phrases: "Have a great birthday. I hope to be a big part of the next one" or "I hope this birthday is one you will remember" or "I'm looking forward to getting to know you better."
Get Information From a Reliable Source
Talk to one of his friends or relatives and find out what he enjoys. If he loves electronics, get him a gift card to Best Buy or a local electronics store. If he enjoys drinking coffee, get him a gift card to Starbucks or a coffee shop near him. If you want to give him a hint that you are interested in getting to know him better, consider adding a message such as "Have a great birthday; maybe we can meet for coffee!"
Be Assertive and Ask Him Out
Offer to take him out for his birthday. Find out what his favorite restaurant is and take him out for dinner. You can also consider getting movie tickets to an upcoming movie that he wants to see. This will be a great birthday gift, considering you just met him; it will also give you a chance to get to know him better.
Send Him an Edible Arrangement
Whether he is a friend, coworker or potential boyfriend, sending something edible can be an ideal birthday gift for a guy you just met. There are various options that would equally make a great impression. Send to his home or work a birthday cake from cakesacrossamerica.com, a basket of cookies from collinstreet.com or a fruit or candy arrangement from ediblearrangments.com. For something more personal, give him a tin of cookies you baked yourself.
