A new romance is blossoming in your life and you are looking for perfect gift to give him for Christmas. We've got anything from the sweet and cute to the fun and quirky! Whether you're looking for something incredibly romantic or utterly practical, be sure to keep the romance alive with our gifts and treat him to something he won't ever forget.

What to Get for a New Boyfriend?

Impressive vs. Budgeted Gifting

The starting stage of a new relationship can be tricky, primarily focused on making good impressions and staying away from making any mistakes. And when it comes to gifts in the initial stage of the relationship, it’d get a tad too uncomfortable. Buying a romantic gift for him may be too soon, and buying something meaningless would make you look indifferent! Hence, it is best to get him something that’s not over the top soppy, yet something that is interesting for him. Don’t splurge and get him something expensive, keep your spend limit realistic, something that closely matches perhaps a lunch date.

Research, Compare And Select

Whatever you buy for your boyfriend should be something that he’d like or is interested in. Go back and review on your conversations with him, recall if he’s mentioned his preferences one time or another. Does he seem interested in contemporary art, perhaps he’d enjoy a coffee table book of one of his favorite modern artists then, or if he likes cooking then a new cookbook or a cooking gadget or a gourmet food hamper would be interesting. You’d think ahead and plan a gift that you’d share with him, say tickets to a concert or a comedy show or an exhibition. Try to book tickets for a date-not too far away!

When You Draw a Blank, Always Choose Romance

Gift giving is exhausting anyway, and when it is extra strenuous when it is during the festive season. At the onset of a new relationship, spending too much too early is putting unnecessary pressure on each other, needless to mention, seeming insecure and desperate! While spending less would mean you’re heartless! Further, it doesn’t help the cause when you have to ponder over what to get – something useful and romantic, corny or intimate. There may come a time that even after going through all possible options of interest, you still are nowhere close to deciding a gift. That’s when the best gift is something simple and romantic. A keepsake or souvenir of your relationship, photo on a wood log or a cake, a caricature of him can be some unique options to explore. Some shared experiences like a wine tasting event or an indoor skydiving activity would be classy too.

Bonus Tip: How to Deal with the Awkwardness of a New Relationship at Christmas

A new relationship, and with the festivities staring right at you, calls for something special for that special someone in your life! With your relationship still in the testing stage and your thoughts of taking it a bit further to understand how far you can go with him, it’s only natural to have cold feet in deciding what to buy for your new love! The last thing you’d want to do is spend exorbitantly on a gift, he may not like or would feel uncomfortable with.

  • How does he like spending Christmas - you really need to find out how he’s been spending his holidays. Questions like what are his best memories of Christmas, or his expectations of an ideal Christmas will not only allow you two to bond with each other but also offer valuable hints to what you can get for him as a gift.
  • How do you decide what’s the right spend for a Christmas gift? At the cost of seeming like a cling-on by going and getting an expensive gift or being a complete pinchpenny and getting him something insignificant, it is important to find out if he’s someone who loves the cards, the gifts and all the accouterments that come along with the festivities or steer clear of the unnecessary and expensive frenzy.
  • Thoughtfulness goes an extra mile – Irrespective of how long you both have been with each other, you’d have a fair share of happy moments together. Take some time out and think back of them, go through pictures (if any) and use them to style a personalized gift that he’ll instantly relate to. It could be a photo book, a canvas print, a poem or even a handmade card. Use this time to show him how much you care and the size of your gift won't matter as much!
  • Throw pretense out of the window - Don’t lose your identity in trying to be someone perfect and different from who you truly are for your beloved. If your pocket doesn’t allow buying him something and is stressing you out, cramping your mind, it’s best to let it all out in the open and discuss it with him. As you open up to him with your thoughts and share your feelings, you’d pave the way for a more meaningful and trustworthy relationship, which would any day be more precious than a store-bought gift.
