Gift Ideas For New Boyfriends

Give Your New Boyfriend Something He'd Actually Want

The new boyfriend — let's say less than a year — may be the hardest to buy for. What to get the man who has, well, you may not be sure yet. We've kept this list budget-friendly, around $50 or less, if all you're ready to say is "I'm in like with you."

A Ron Swanson beer coozie ($8), a cocktail tool box ($40), or a funny Someecards pint glass ($12) will please the party boy in any man. Take good times to the top shelf by buying his favorite liquor, like this Macallan Scotch ($45), which happens to be James Bond's drink of choice in Skyfall (although his was a bit pricier).

Have an experience together, whether it's making dinner reservations at a new or favorite restaurant, buying tickets to a live show, or reading a book together, like David Sedaris's latest Let's Explore Diabetes With Owls ($18, originally $27).

If you get stumped, consider what he needs but won't buy himself, like grooming products. Get him The Man Can ($48), a paint can filled will with Manly Soap, Very Masculine Bay Rum Oil, Extremely Spicy Shave Gel, Fisherman's Hand Butter, and a Scratchy Body Accessory. What about hobbies? If he's a musician, he'd surely appreciate a guitar pick punch ($25). And all men love knives, so this utilitarian pocket knife ($32) is sure to be a hit.

If all else fails, go with something humorous. This Off Scot Free Card ($10) is essentially priceless for a new boyfriend who might make a few faux pas at the beginning of the relationship. And he's sure to get a kick out this "new boyfriend" keytag ($15) that's made even better with keys to your apartment on it!

There is also IPhone app (What to get my boyfriend) for that, its very nice. It asks you questions about relationship and his character,,in the end it gives you suggestions, of course you can set the budget and also his birthday reminder. Its cute and useful, I am sure they have bunch of small cheep unusual gift ideas and they as well have DIY ideas.

Haha, my boyfriend doesn't play pool, doesn't drink, isn't born in the US, has plenty of sharp knives because he loves to cook, and watches all his favourite shows online, for free. None of these would work, haha... He doesn't like wasteful spending of money, so he would probably dislike me spending money on something he doesn't need. For my birthday he cooked me an amazing dinner. If I were to treat him for his birthday, it would probably be taking him out for dinner, or buying groceries and making him a nice dinner. Good food is something he appreciates. We've only been dating for half a year but I know him well enough! Hahaha..
