11 Valentine's Day gifts to get your new boyfriend

A new relationship is always exciting and gives us a reason to celebrate life and love. But things can get a little complicated when you've met a new connection just days, weeks or even months before Valentine's Day. You probably haven't established whether you're a serious couple or not and you certainly don't want to scare your partner away with a V-Day gift that expresses your undying love and commitment. At the same time, you want to give a little something that shows you're thinking about your new love interest and may be open to a more serious relationship.

Not sure where to start? Here are 11 Valentine's Day gifts that are perfect for the not-so-serious-yet relationship in your life.

Got a guy who loves tech? You can't go wrong with a personalized leather tech organizer that will help him keep his gadgets, headphones and various wires secure and in one place. It's thoughtful and practical, but also personal and sweet.

If you find yourself dating a music fan right before the holiday, consider yourself lucky: They are notoriously simple to shop for and, unless you go and temporarily lose your mind and decide to buy your guy something crazy like a guitar (don't), there are a bazillion gift options that won't make you both uncomfortable. A good pair of quality headphones is almost always a winner.

There's a good chance you're still in that we-only-get-out-of-bed-to-pour-more-Champagne phase. Why not skip to the chase and let your new guy know you're happy to ravish his body this V-day... after your cup of coffee. (Etsy, $12)

If your new guy is a comics freak and is already spending nights at your place, one option to make him feel welcome is to buy two of these cool-looking superhero pillows and leave one at your house. If you're so not there yet, no worries — he'll love one anyway. (Etsy, $12)

Here's what your guy hears when you buy him a video game: I like you just the way you are. I'm not trying to change you. I think it's so cool that you don't know how to do your own laundry. Just kidding! But, seriously, if you're looking for a gift that shouts, "let's have fun and see where this goes!" you can't do better.

Event tickets

Tickets to an upcoming event, such as a concert, game or play, are perfect because they make it clear to your new partner that you're interested in spending more time together in the future, but they also keep things light and fun. There is one caveat here: Make sure the event is going to take place in the near future. You don't want to make the assumption that you'll still be an item next February.

His and her books

If you both enjoy literature, a great gift option is to purchase two of the same books you've both been curious about and make a pact to read them together. Split a bottle of wine or hot cocoa on a cold night and host an intimate one-on-one book club party.

The gift of suspense is always welcome in a budding relationship. Loot Crate gives you an opportunity to pick from categories like Star Wars, anime, Call of Duty or pets. They'll curate awesome items for your loot crate (things like T-shirts and books) and your boyfriend will get to enjoy the surprise loot.

Speak Wines

Speak Wines

It would come off as awkward to bring just a bottle of wine to your new boyfriend — seems more like a gift you'd get your aunt for Christmas. But Speak Wines are more special than your ordinary cabernet because they combine a quality bottle of Argentinian wine with adorable and totally new-romance appropriate messages on their labels. A bottle that reads "Just because xoxo" is sweet, but not creepy.

Despite what everyone would have you believe: there are guys out there who aren't that into beer. If your boyfriend is a fan of whisky, rum or gin, Flaviar delivers a tasting box of three fine spirits per month for a minimum of two months. This gift gives you the perfect excuse to experiment with various libations, as well. A win-win.
