Christmas is coming and it’s time to get yourself organised when it comes to finding the right present for the new man in your life. After all, buying presents for someone special is exciting and it’s one of the nicest parts of being in a relationship. Christmas and birthdays are definitely more fun when you’ve got someone significant to spoil.

However, finding the right gift for your fella is sometimes much easier said than done! One of the trickiest parts of Christmas for anyone in a relatively new relationship can be choosing an appropriate gift. If you decide not to risk getting anything on the basis that it’s still early days, it could backfire if he’s splashed out on you. But you also don’t want to risk going over the top and potentially scaring him off with a big, extravagant present.

When it comes to gift ideas for men, it all depends on how well you know them and where the relationship is going, but there are some tactics for making sure you get the gifts right no matter how new your relationship. A gift that involves something you can do together is generally a great idea if you’ve been together for a couple of months or more. If you’ve not yet taken a weekend break as a couple, this could be the perfect opportunity. And because you get to enjoy the gift too, it doesn’t seem too extravagant or over the top.

Of course, it doesn’t have to be a weekend break. If you feel that’s verging on the overly romantic at this stage, why not get two tickets to a gig by a band he loves, or a music festival that you can both get something out of? When it comes to presents for men ideas, those that you can enjoy together are a great way of getting round the thorny issue of how much is too much or too little.
