It’s happened to all of us. We start dating some new with holiday season just around the corner.

Investing too much in a gift while casually dating can send the wrong message, especially if boundaries have already been set.
Below are a few gift ideas for you to maintain your single life while holding onto your casual relationships this holiday season.
A spa day
This doesn't mean opting for the five-figure deluxe package that includes a diamond dust facial and saffron bath – but a gift-certificate to a spa can help your fling relax and indulge, ensuring your next date is a good one.
Make it about both of you
If you are worried about seeming too enamoured with your gift, make it about both of you. Concert tickets or a wine tasting are popular, non-extravagant options that show you want to continue spending time together.
Everyone loves chocolate. She’s sure to feel touched that you went out of your way to try and add a little sweetness to her life.
Buying her jewelry doesn’t have to signify a commitment. Choosing a stylish, simple bracelet, for example, will show that you’re a man with good taste.

Keep the above give casual dating gift suggestions in mind and make sure you send the right message in a classy and tactful way.
