Cuffing season is in full swing, and many of you may have just secured a new boyfriend. First of all, congrats on finding someone to spend the holidays with! It’s a tough world out there, but you managed to secure a cuddle buddy for the cold temperatures. Of course, since it is the holidays, figuring out the perfect gift for your new boyfriend is a new challenge—but one which we’re here to help with. You’ve already done the hard part (finding a boyfriend that’s worthy of your time, in this case), but now it’s time to take the next step and really make this Christmas grand.

If you’ve just started dating someone, finding a gift for them is hard AF. On one hand, you want to impress your significant other with the perfect item. On the other hand, though, you don’t want to go too big too soon. You need a gift that says, “Hey, I like you and think you’re great, but we just started going out, and I’m not sure if you’re my soulmate yet.” Yes, it’s a difficult task, but there are plenty of ways to gift your boyfriend a special item without going overboard. The key: Pay attention.

When you talk to your new boyfriend, pay attention to what he likes, what he complains about or what he’s lacking. If he’s always cold, gift him with a chic winter accessory to keep him warm (like a beanie or scarf). If he can’t stop talking about how his favorite show is about to be removed from Netflix, get him the DVD box set so he can have it forever. If he’s a huge fan of a specific sports team, find a chic sweatshirt with a vintage-inspired team logo. There’s no need to get anything too fancy—just find a gift that’s practical and personal, and you can’t go wrong.

Below, you’ll find a solid assortment of different new boyfriend gift ideas to get you started on your journey. Whether your new boyfriend is a total foodie or always complains about his long commute to work, you’re sure to find something that suits his needs—without going over the top. Save the fancy gifts for your first anniversary, K?
