Matching kandi and other crafts to make for my gf?

I have no rizz. I have never actually been in a relationship… not a healthy one, at least, but that’s neither here nor there. The point is that I don’t know how to impress a girl my age. She’s so cool!! And she’s my girlfriend? That’s crazy to me. But anyways I wanna do something nice for her to make her feel special because I like her and I want her to be happy. Anyways I was like “what can I do?” and then I remembered that I’m kinda good at making stuff PLUS I like giving gifts. I already got her a book she pointed out during our last date but I do wanna make her something. Something small but unique; I’ve given her singles before, I want something different.

What’s the occasion? Ummm well I guess the occasion is either no occasion or “we’re finally officially dating after a month of going out and over a year of knowing each other,” so it doesn’t have to be huge. I’m thinking beyond kandi maybe even… sewing, or something useful? Or maybe I could make her a bookmark? I’d like input!!

Oh yeah and it’d be great if I could make a matching one for myself!!

Anyways yeah this is my first relationship and I’m real hype because she’s so cool and we mesh well. None of this comes naturally to me (yes I’m aromantic. Yes I’m in a romantic relationship. We exist!!) so I need pointers. I just wanna make her feel good without being too much. Cheers

Does she like purses? You could try making a kandi bag if you want a big project! Or, try making her some doubles. THe was to make a double is that you have the two strings, you put one bead through both strings, then you add beads on the separate strings and then continue

Maybe make something with their favorite color and name? I think thats sweet. Or maybe something else with a silly pick up line or a poem? That's all I got gud luck!awesome1

Phone charm, name necklace for her fave plushie, make her a plushie (awesome sock monsters are stupidly easy and if you don't want to go too big you can use baby socks), a jar of kandi stars or those paper stars or cranes, a mini fabric pennant banner, hand drawn stickers.

Target has those felt pennant kits again, and I still love the one I made ten years ago that says FELT.

For her: “stupid pretty”

For you: “pretty stupid

heart charm or heart perler shaker with like your partners favorite color

also are u sure your just not like acesexual or that one sexuality where you only like people u have a bond or something with them

also not a craft but something I did once with my old partner I read book called "nothing burns as bright as you" by Ashely woodfolk and we saved pages in the book or quotes that reminded us of each other definitely helped our relationship(for like a week because they were kinda an asshole that had anger issues and dumped me for my friend and bragged about stealing condoms from Walmart and the sexually things they did together in front of everyone in school)

@Zekemeep69: I’m not asexual or demisexual/demiromantic, and I just wanna let you know that people who haven’t asked for advice on labels don’t want advice on labels. I am aromantic through and through because that’s what I identify as, you dig? rainbowsmile
