Relationship Gift Ideas for Him

It doesn’t really matter if you’ve just made it “Facebook official,” you’re newly engaged  or you’ve been with your guy since the Clinton administration. Buying holiday gifts for the man in your life can take your mood from festive to Grinch in no time. But before you just pick up a gift card and call it a day, check out our ideas for all stages of a relationship.

He’s Your Crush
Your strategy: When you’re still just hoping a date might be in your future, there’s no need
for a formal gift, says New York-based dating and relationship expert and matchmaker Rachel
. “Ask him to grab a holiday drink to celebrate the season,” she suggests. But if you don’t want to arrive empty-handed, hand him a Bite Me! Vampire Tooth Bottle Opener. Whether you’ve bonded over your mutual love of True Blood in the past, or just want him to be thinking about, um, your mouth, this is an inexpensive gift that shows you’re interested, but without sending any crazy stalker signals.
