You may want to clarify exactly how you are going to measure your dating anniversaries.
Since there is no “official date” that a dating relationship begins some couples celebrate their anniversary on the based on the day they first met and others on the date of their first date.
The first month anniversary gift should be romantic, thoughtful and not over the top.
I would suggest something like a dinner out at your favorite spot or maybe dinner and tickets to a show, concert or sporting event you will both enjoy.

The other option would be something sweet like a teddy bear or other plush animal or maybe that most reliable of all gifts – flowers.
The lists of symbols and gifts for wedding anniversaries is often written and talked about. Dating anniversaries tend to be celebrated in months rather than years.
There does not appear to be a similar universally accepted gift guide or suggested list for dating anniversaries.
Some gift stores and websites have created their own lists of suggestions but nothing as widely recognized as the wedding anniversary symbol list first created by Emily Post in 1922.
However if you have a good thing going, it is important to let your partner in the relationship know that you appreciate them.
Anniversaries, dating or otherwise were invented for this reason.
An anniversary should be a day when you conveniently forget about the rest of the world, and focus on each other.
Some of the most appreciated anniversary gifts revolve around time the couple can spend together enjoying some activity or event together.
The first month is a big deal and most women if not the men will expect some sort of recognition of the conclusion of one month of dating.
