Before trying to figure out what to get your significant other for Christmas, it is important to understand the length and seriousness of the relationship.
One idea for couples who have just been on a few dates is simply a Christmas card. If the relationship is still new but has lasted a few months, a new book of his/her favorite genre could be nice for those who enjoy reading. If they have a sense of humor, then a mug with a funny saying might fit their personality.
For those who are in a long-distance relationship, a relationship keychain set could be cute and remind both partners of the other. Gamers might think that receiving a video game is thoughtful, and gives them something to do until reuniting with their significant other. While jewelry is often used to show meaning, women might enjoy having something to wear that reminds them of their long-distance significant other.
An idea for those who want to give a homemade gift, decorating a phone case can show thoughtfulness and save money. A gift that can show quite a bit of meaning is a framed collage of maps of places the couple has been with a certain saying that has meaning to the couple. When it comes to gift giving, it is important to remember that the entire relationship is not based on Christmas gifts, and the recipient will probably be happy with whatever they get.
