In a New Relationship? Don't Rock the Boat With These Perfect Gifts

Because we don't want to break up before New Year's.

By Courtney Thompson

If you’re in a new relationship and asking yourself, “Should I even get them something for Christmas?” the answer is a resounding yes. Why? Because everyone loves getting a present, and presumably you’re into this person, so a gift is totally appropriate.

But this is where the waters get murky. You want to give a gift that can’t be misconstrued as too eager. (Read: Don’t buy lingerie, don’t buy a Rolex watch.) And you don’t want a present that comes off as half-hearted. (Read: anything you can buy at a drugstore.)

So first and foremost, don’t overspend—anything beyond $500 is likely to make your new partner uncomfortable and embarrassed that their reciprocal gift is inadequate. Second, you want to put just the right amount of thought into your offering. (But not too much thought—a custom portrait of your silhouettes will send them running for the hills!) Dating an avid runner? They’ll love the new Powerbeats2 Wireless Headphones. Falling for a humanitarian? They’ll appreciate that each of the new Tom’s Apple Watch Bands provide one year of solar light to those in need. Below we’ve rounded up 12 gifts that are impossible to misinterpret and will definitely keep the flames alive for the long run.
