I don’t want to make this gift mistake

DEAR HARRIETTE: I have been dating my boyfriend for three months. A month ago, he asked me to be his “girlfriend,” which was very sweet, and I accepted. We are in community college together.

Since we have been dating for this long and are now committed, should I get him a Christmas gift? If so, what is appropriate? I really don’t want to overplay my hand.

In the past, I have gone all out for boyfriends — only to get burned. I want to be appropriate, but I also want to show him that I like him. What should I do?
