There’s nothing more awkward than starting to date someone new around the holidays. You’re only just getting to know each , so you won’t necessarily be able to pull off a genuinely thoughtful gift, but you want to make sure that they know you don’t just think of them as one of your friends. It’s a weird line to toe, but that doesn’t mean it has to be impossible.

Below are some gift ideas for your new Tinder boyfriend or girlfriend. You can thank me later.

1. A photo lens for the Instagram-obsessed

Magnetic iPhone/Android Lenses (Photojojo, $20 each)

There’s bound to be at least one person in a new relationship with a deep love for Instagram. Give them the ability to improve their shots tenfold with these cute little magnetic DSLR lenses.

2. A good bottle of wine (or their favorite liquor)

If you’ve been on a couple of dates with someone, you probably know their drink of choice. Bonus points if the packaging is on point.

3. A scarf for the colder weather

Italian Wool-Blend Scarf in Classic Plaid (J.Crew, $40.50)

It’s a gift that’s both seasonally appropriate and universally-loved. If I got a soft scarf from someone I’d just started seeing, I certainly wouldn’t be mad about it.

4. Jewelry

Polka Orb Slim Cuff (BaubleBar, $32)

Pro tip, guys: if you’re not sure if she has pierced ears or not, just go with something else.

5. A cologne, shaving, or skincare set

The Motley Cologne Collection (The Motley, $50)

It’s too early to try to change a beauty routine or influence the way they dress, but that doesn’t mean you can’t nudge them in a certain director.

6. Candles or incense


Aspen Bay Candles Cosmic Crack Candle (Urban Outfitters, $12 each)

It’s not tacky so long as you actually pick out a scent that doesn’t smell like burning hair.

7. A drinking game

Lucky 7’s Bar Dice Game (Urban Outfitters, $7)

Know your audience with this one, but there are lots of cute drinking games out there that make for great gifts.

8. A Netflix subscription

9. Tickets to something you can do together

I’m not saying you should buy Adele tickets together (though if you can get your hands on a pair, you’re probably God and can do whatever you want). If there’s a movie or concert coming up in the next couple of weeks that you know you both want to attend, go for it. Just make sure it’s not so high-pressure; that means no vacations.
