Now that y’all have been at it for half a year, you can loosen up a bit. Your dinner dates are no longer make-or-break, and let’s be honest, you’re probs more into low-key hangouts at this point. You’re comfortable enough to make inside jokes, and you’ve got a good grasp on what he likes and secretly dislikes, so use it to your shopping advantage. And FYI: You can never go wrong with a solid pair of headphones. Six months in, you probably know that he loves music or needs some new earbuds for his commutes or the gym.

This is also the perfect time to get him a practical gift, such as a laptop case or a grooming kit. And since you now know what his style is (or where it has room for some improvement), you can pick out something to add to his wardrobe.

If your love is still kinda new but not, like, that new, shop these gifts:

You never need to spend a lot of money on a gift, but if you’ve been wanting to spoil him with something special, the day of lurve is a good excuse to spend a *little* more than you have before. And now that you know what he likes to smell like, a fragrance is a classic gift idea. Treat him to a new scent, like this musky one from Byredo. (Life hack: It’s like a gift for you too, because he will be smelling sooo good.)

If you guys have been saying the L-word, a gift like a mini projector is sure to level up all your date nights. And now that you know what his daily routine is like, a sunrise alarm clock or smart coffee mug is sure to please.

If you’re starting to feel like this whole thing you’ve got might last, consider the below:

Aw you guys have hit the one-year mark, congrats! Chances are you’ve already given him a handful of presents for other occasions and you might want to get him a special gift. By now, you probably feel more secure in your relationship and comfortable spending some $$$ on him (because he deserves it!). If his wallet could use an upgrade, let us introduce you to this sleek card case from Gucci. It’s timeless, thoughtful, and luxe without being too over-the-top (we love a subtle flex!).

For other gift ideas if you feel like splurging on your man, consider an LED face mask or a nice suitcase for his next getaway (maybe with you *hint hint*).

Okay, you’ve probably used up every gift idea under the sun by now after all the birthdays, holidays, and anniversaries. But Valentine’s Day is still a perfectly good excuse to celebrate another year of being together. You know him better than anyone else, but if you’re struggling to come up with a present, we gotchu. Get him a cool kitchen gadget like this automatic cocktail maker. It’s like a coffee machine but for his (and your) favorite drinks!

And a few years in is never a bad time to get him something to make his life *a little* easier. A customized notebook for all his to-dos is super helpful, or perhaps a KitchenAid Mixer if he loves to wear the chef’s hat in the relationship.
