The new boyfriend — let's say less than a year — may be the hardest to buy for. What to get the man who has, well, you may not be sure yet. We've kept this list budget-friendly, around $100 or less, if all you're ready to say is "I'm in like with you."
An adult board game, like The Settlers of Catan ($34), a fancy flask ($54), or a vintage pool ball bottle stopper ($30) will please the party boy in any man. Take good times to the top shelf by buying a pricier version of his favorite liquor, like this Glenrothes Single-Malt Scotch ($70) or a wine accessory set ($20).
Have an experience together, whether it's making dinner reservations at a new or favorite restaurant, buying tickets to a live show, or reading a book together like Jonathan Franzen's much-anticipated Freedom ($14).
If you get stumped, consider what he needs but won't buy himself. Everyone over 25 should own a good knife, and this Normann Copenhagen ($81) should be sharp enough. Most guys are lacking in the art department, so let him mark his territory with a painted wooden block of his home state ($25), available for every state in several colors.
If all else fails, think entertainment. Send him packing (or hint for a trip) with a travel journal ($9), or let him rest up with an iTunes subscription to the latest season of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia ($25) or whatever his favorite show is.
