Coming up with romantic gift ideas for a new boyfriend can be challenging. We want to extend that mushy honeymoon phase as long as possible. We have to consider our views on romance may differ from our new beau. He might consider watching a gory movie with you romantic.
When the relationship is fresh you often contemplate if you are doing too much, or too little. You don’t want to possibly scare him away, or worse be labeled the dreaded “Pick me .” You don’t want to do too little because he might get the impression you simply don’t care.
Also, we have to protect our fragile hearts because there will be a time when you are in the receiving position, and your generosity might not be reciprocated.
Hopefully, you will gain some helpful gift ideas for your new boyfriend, sprinkled with a little advice.
Things to Consider when buying a gift for your new boyfriend
- Only spend what your heart and budget will allow with the understanding that the gesture may not be reciprocated.
- Selfish gifting is not the most terrible thing a person could do in a new relationship. What I mean by selfish gifting is giving a gift your partner would enjoy, but you also reap the benefits. Therefore you don’t take an L (Loss).
Romantic Gift Ideas for the New Man in Your Life
1. Gifts for the Foodie
Our most romantic dating experiences usually involve eating food. Maybe your new guy is not exactly a master chef in the kitchen. Perhaps with a nice new kitchen appliance, he can make some things happen.
You can at the very least get some bomb snacks for the next Netflix and Chill session. Check out these cool kitchen gadgets to take the next romantic movie night to another level. Let him choose the movie this time!
2. Ambiance to Set the Mood
Encourage your new boo to set the mood with nice slow jams, clean air, and romantic lighting.
3. Nothing More Romantic than Long Walks
I want to preface this section by stating I usually don’t recommend purchasing a man’s shoes. You know the age-old saying, ” Never buy a man’s shoes because he will use them to walk out your life.” I make an exception when the shoe prompts a cute date situation. You really get to know a person when you get lost on a hiking trail. I have firsthand experience. Lol?
4. The Spa Treatment
Show your new guy a little tenderness with an at-home spa experience. Many men do not know the feeling of being pampered.
5. Cuddle Time
Some men won’t admit it but they love to cuddle. Grab him a weighted blanket. He ain’t going nowhere! Bahahaha!
6. Traditional Wallet with a Twist
The wallet is a classic gift for any man. Add a gift card, sporting events tickets, or a loving memento to take it up a notch.
7. Morning Cup of Appreciation
Guys love compliments, and to know they are doing a good job. Mugs with funny sayings are a good way to show you care, especially if you are awkward with complimenting men. Show that man some appreciation!
8. Bump that Boring Framed Picture
Okay, it might be too soon to give him a picture frame of you. Get an etched 3D picture of someone he holds dear like his Nana.
9. Organization & Personalization
A romantic gift for your new boyfriend is to be attentive to his needs. Your guy might have trouble with keeping up with things. Give him the gift of organization with a personal touch.
10. When in Doubt Go with Gift Sets
Maybe you are still uncertain about what to get your new boyfriend. You could totally get creative and make your new boyfriend a basket full of his favorite items. What’s more romantic than someone who listens to you, and takes the time to put together a gift specifically for you? Or you could go for a premade option.
