DS (15) has his first kind of sort of girlfriend. She's a lovely girl and attends a different school.

What is a nice, low-key, thoughtful but not over the top gift from a 15 year old boy to a 15 year old girl who attends another school (and they don't have mutual friends at that school so buying her one of the flowers or suckers sold in school seems out).

I personally feel it's too soon for jewelry of any kind. That just seems more intimate than "we just started seeing each other last week"

We aren't looking for some grand gesture that goes viral - just a nice thoughtful thing that will make her feel happy and that she can giggle to her girlfriends about. She's a very down to earth girl so I don't think her expectations are going to be lofty either.

As long as they're not roses, I think flowers would be nice. Something happy and fun, like daisies or sunflowers. What is her favorite candy? I little bouquet of flowers and a bag of gummy bears (or whatever she likes) would be sweet and thoughtful, but not expensive or over the top.

Great suggestion. Thank you. NOT roses - just something fun and young and cute.

I have an almost 15 year old son in the same boat. We settled on a pink "sock monkey". Just something kind of cute. Not too pricey.

I like the stuffed animal idea. They have cute Valentine's ones out.

Could you help him make a candy bouquet? They are pretty easy and there's tons of ideas on pinterest or google.

At that age, my DS gave his GF a teddy bear from Build-A-Bear and ironically, she gave him the same thing. It was cute.

My dd got a stuffy last year with a homemade rad. She loved it.

Now a question for you. What would your son like. My dd now has a boyfriend and doesn't know what to get him? What on you suggest for boys?

Food. Baked goods and/or candy. Most boys I know have a favorite candy - a girl who knows what it is and gives him that would be very thoughtful.

A bag of cookies, brownies, cupcakes. My DS will accept cupcakes from random girls post Home-Ec. A gift from the girl he likes would be even better.

Does he have a favorite hobby or sport? Maybe a treat shaped in a component of that? Soccer ball, trumpet, chess piece, computer, what have you

There is another thread here full of great ideas for a girl to give a boy. I'm sorry I can't link from mobile but there are fun ideas there.

DS was in about the same place last year. He got her a stuffed animal of an animal that was her nickname for him. We had also baked heart shaped cookies that we make every year and decorate to look like conversation hearts. He wrote sayings on them with their inside jokes. She loved it...more than he loved her because he broke up with her the following month. Ahh--young love.
