So I've become good friends with this guy, and we've agreed to meet each other for the first time in a couple of days which is a few days before his birthday, and I'm stuck on whether I should get him something or not?..
Also, what to get him if I should. Thanks in advance.

Would it be weird for you to know his birthday? i.e did you meet on FB and it's not there/he hasn't told you or is it common knowledge? If it's common info then I'd go for it. Shows you're thoughtful. I would keep it small though.

Oh no it just came up in conversation once on text when he said something like 'my birthday's coming up soon actually' to which I responded 'oh when is it?'

Well what does he like? What is he doing for his birthday? What do you have in common?

you could just give him a card and then pay for the meal/coffee or whatever when you meet up

If you get him anything at all I bet he'll be chuffed. Why don't you try something small - a book, a CD/DVD perhaps something funny?

It's the thought that you put into it that counts. I wouldn't try doing over the top- as I said he should be chuffed anyhow .

Something small like a cupcake with a candle would be appropriate, not to mention cute
