New relationships are an exciting time, nonetheless. But sometimes we struggle in terms of gift-giving for that first birthday, or Christmas. Many times we over-think what to get our significant other, and go in with the mindset of "If I think it's stupid... it's probably really is."
I will say this: as a married woman, I still come across holidays where it is merely impossible to figure out a gift for my husband. And I, too, have the very similar mindset of, "This is stupid..." But lo and behold, what I might think is stupid - might be the most brilliant gift in my husband's eyes. And that has been the test of truth many times in gift-giving over the years. So that is one thing to remain in the back of your mind during your gift-giving ventures.
And as if new relationships aren't difficult enough, it's important to not give a gift that conveys the wrong message, or is way too over the top. Which makes the process already twice as hard, and these days couples want to branch out of giving one another "perfume" and "cologne".
One aspect to ask yourself in the gifting process is this: what do I now know about my significant other's interests? And build onto that. So if you're with someone who loves coffee, think about getting them something unique in that niche. The one thing to steer clear from are any gifts pertaining to measurements and weight (so clothes, unless you are absolutely 100% sure) - save yourself the embarrassment of getting their size completely wrong. And if you are on fence about a particular item in relation to their interests - it's best to go ahead and look for something else.
To help you in that process of finding something unique for your significant other, I have compromised a list of over 75 gift ideas for new relationships. Some unique, some quirky, some useful, and some downright funny.
