The fact is, an appropriate gift that will be well-received will be different depending on where youre at in your relationship.
When it comes to holiday gift-giving, theres such a thing as doing too much, and theres such a thing as doing too little, but this greatly depends on what stage your relationship is in and how serious it is.
For your convenience, heres a gift guidebook for every grey area, every situationship, and every stage of a relationship 😛 TAGEND
Situation : Long-term relationship Gift for her : Diamond earrings or Tiffany& Co jewelry
Theyre sparkly. Theyre gorgeous. They go with everything. Diamonds are a girls best friend. We get several orders right before Christmas, and the majority of members of those orders come from humen shopping for their long-term girlfriend or their wife, Josh Raber, founder of Vancouver Diamonds told me. Diamond earrings are the perfect Christmas gift for those in severe or long-term relationships.
This is one of the most romantic and timeless gifts to give.
If youre in the long-term relationship stage, you also cant go wrong with anything from Tiffany& Co. Most females will love pretty much from Tiffany, and a piece of jewelry from there is a luxury item so its perfect for those of your with serious girlfriends. It also comes in adorable packaging, complete with a romantic satin ribbon and its very high-quality jewelry that lasts.
Gift for him : A stylish engraved watch
An engraved watch is gift for him thats stylish, sentimental, practical and timeless. Every man should have a stylish watch in his collect of accessories. To make it romantic and personal, you can engrave the watch with our love is timeless, period stands still when Im with you or for all time with your initials engraved underneath the message.
Many females keep an eye out for new trends in mens watches, and give their man a new watch every Christmas. Just like women with their shoes, humen cant have enough watches in their collection.
Situation : Serious relationship Gift for her : An initial necklace or an inscribed bracelet
Initial necklaces are trendy right now, so you cant go wrong with this gift. Stella& Dot has beautiful initial necklaces in gold, silver or rose gold. If youre one of those guys who dislikes shopping, they make it easy with user-friendly online purchase, quick shipping and beautiful packaging so that you dont need to wrap it. Stella& Dot also allows the buyer to customize the engraving on several products such as necklaces and bracelets. You can even customize the font.

Not sure what to engrave? If its a bracelet, something like youre beautiful or I love you is adorable, and if its a necklace pendant that requires a shorter message, simply get your anniversary date engraved on it or both of your initials engraved is perfect.
Gift for him : An inscribed men key necklace
The best place to get a cool men necklace that hell love is from The Giving Keys. My favourite is the Matte Black Key Necklace for him, which was originally inspired by a New York hotel room key.
The sexy matte black will look great with everything and hell wear it all the time. Suppose of it as a key to your heart, and engrave it with a special personalized message for him. You could engrave his key with the date “youve met”, a special word, or both of your initials.
Situation : Ready to commit Gift for her : A simple piece of jewelry
If youve been noticing a jewelry tendency in this list, its because jewelry is something your partner can wear and think of you. Its sentimental and it means something when someone picks a jewelry item out, because chose it.
If youve been dating for at the least six months, opportunities are youve already said I love you to each other, or youre ready to say it for the first time. Youre probably ready to take the next step and make a commitment. The best Christmas gift for this stage is still jewelry but a simpler piece that shows youre not going too over the top too soon.( In other words , no diamonds yet .) Something like these cute unicorn earrings from LanaBetty would be perfect for her.
Gift for him : A weekend away with you
When youre starting to get serious with him, the best thing you can do is spend a weekend away together to get to know each other even better and progress the relationship. A weekend away that youve planned and paid for is the perfect Christmas gift.
Situation : Newly dating Gift for her : A corsage of flowers and a nice bottle of wine
After the six month mark, I think its safe to say youre in more than a situationship. Youre a couple at this phase, so its okay indicate some thought and be romantic but you utterly go over the top. A corsage of beautiful roses and a bottle of great wine is a gift is an appropriate gift for this stage of a relationship. Especially the wine. We like wine. Wine is good.
Gift for him : A gift certificate to get a massage
Chances are he works hard, has sore shoulders, and a gift certificate to get a massage is a thoughtful gift. By not get a couples massage and instead only get his own massage, youre showing that youre not trying to move the relationship too quickly but that you still wanted to get something for him on Christmas.
Situation : Nothing( yet)
Gift for her : No gift but maybe a fun vacation activity
Gift for him : Ditto
If youve been dating for less than two months, a gesture in the form of a gift is not really expected. That doesnt mean you cant do for each other. You could scheme a fun vacation activity to do together, and thats more than enough for this new stage of a non-relationship.
