Starting a new relationship just before the holiday season can be stressful for various reasons. You may be trying to figure out if you want to spend the holidays together or separately, or if you are visiting your partner’s family, and, of course, what to get them as a gift. 

Gift-giving in a new relationship can be tricky because you are just getting to know the other person. You may be wondering what price point you should be looking at and what kind of items are appropriate to give to someone you are still getting to know. And this isn’t just exclusive to the holidays. What if you meet someone just ahead of their birthday? Don’t stress out too much as we will give you seven great gift ideas for couples who have recently entered a new relationship. Keep reading to find out more.

For Him 

If your partner is more traditionally masculine, here are some of our favorite gifts to give to men that also fall at an appropriate price point for someone in a new relationship:

  1. A Wallet: Wallets are a typical choice to give to a man, but for a good reason. Many men carry worn-down wallets as they don’t see a point in spending money on accessories, but upgrading their wallets is the perfect thing to do if you have just started dating your sweetheart.
  2. Shave Kit: A shaving kit is another thing your man may not want to spend money on but will surely enjoy. He will get some use out of it, and he will appreciate that you took the time to make sure he has some self-care products on hand.

For Her 

If you have entered into a relationship with a woman or someone who is female presenting, you can give them an endless amount of appropriate gifts. Here are a couple of our favorites:

  1. Perfume: If you know that she has a signature scent, you can give her a set that includes a body wash or lotion that matches her perfume. Or if you see she may be running low on her current bottle, you can give her a new one or provide her with something different that you think she may like. Either way, she will appreciate the thought you put into it.
  2. Earrings: Most jewelry-related gifts fall at too high of a price point to be appropriate for a new relationship. Earrings, however, are the exception. Earrings come in a broader range of price points and seem less committal than a ring or necklace.  

For Both

While you will want to stay away from any shared experiences that require a long-term commitment (because nothing is worse than trying to get a refund for a couple’s trip if the relationship goes south), there are a few shared experiences that make great gifts for couples at all stages in their relationships. These are essentially a gift and a date night built into one. Here are some of our favorites:

  1. Concert Tickets: If there is a musician or band that your partner enjoys, give them two tickets to see their favorite artist. They will appreciate that you chose something important to them that you can experience together. Check out some of their favorite musicians’ tour schedules to see if they are stopping in your city in the coming months. And if your relationship doesn’t work out, they can always take their friend.
  2. Spa Day: A spa day is an excellent way for a new couple to relax and de-stress together. It is also a great way to ignite romance and make you feel closer to each other. You can do a simple couples massage or plan a full-out spa day. Either way, your partner will appreciate the gift of a fun and intimate day together.  
  3. Sports Tickets: If your partner would rather see their favorite sports team play than head out to a concert, get them tickets to a game instead. This is another great gift-giving opportunity that new couples can enjoy together.
