If you've just started dating someone, don't feel pressured to buy your new boyfriend something over-the-top or expensive for your first Christmas together. Instead buy a Christmas gift for him that is sweet and simple that will show him he's special to you without being overly sentimental.

Money Clip

Help your new boyfriend get organized this year by purchasing him a money clip. You can buy this as a stand-alone gift, or in conjunction with another present. You can find money clips at almost any department store, many of which can be engraved with your boyfriend's initials, a quote or a special saying. RedEnvelope offers a money clip made of stainless steel that contains the sage advice, "The safest way to double your money is to fold it over once and put it in your pocket." It's just one of the many gifts offered under $50.

Cuff Links

Keep your new man looking sharp with a pair of cuff links. While these accessories can be purchased at a variety of price points, from cheap to very expensive, it's usually not necessary to go all out by getting a new boyfriend ultra-pricey diamond studded cuff links. Instead, go for a more subtle approach such as cuff links with simply his initials or a small decoration. RedEnvelope offers oval stud sterling-silver cuff links that can be decorated with a single initial.


A wallet, while not super personal, can be jazzed up with embossed initials or personalization for his gift. Wallets are available at almost any price point, making it possible to accomplish the same goal while staying on your own personal budget. RedEnvelope offers a variety of wallets, including the buffalo nickel money clip wallet. This wallet features an original buffalo nickel atop an exterior money clip and two slots and a compartment for credit and ID cards.
