1 Samuel: 2. 30.
Wherefore the LORD God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me forever: but now the LORD saith, Be it far from me; for them that honor me I will honor, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.
There is no hard and fast rule with regards to the first fruit. The focus is simply on honoring God. Honor should be the gauge with which you measure what you should give as the first fruit. For example, if you feel that giving the first-week income of a new year does not honor God sufficiently at your level, do not give it because it is not honor. Step it up! But that may be honor for someone else at another level, it is personal.
So, do not give your first in competition with someone else or to show off. Give what you consider honor at your level. Some persons give their first fruit every year by giving their first month’s income. They are giving according to what they consider honor.
You are also supposed to give according to what you consider honor to God. It may be the income of your first day, first week, first month, first one thousand, etc. As long as it is first, then it is the first fruit. Therefore, whether you give the first of regular, the best of incomes, or a new income, or even a combination of all the types of firstfruits; ensure to honor God with it. Glory to God!
