We've all been there – you go on a date about in mid-November and by December 1 you're 'sort of a thing but not really', and you're not sure whether inviting them to your cousin's wedding is a total no-no or not. 

Aren't the early stages just the best?!

What intensifies the whole situation all the more, however, is little voice in the back of your head asking whether you should buy them a gift – or do you think they're going to buy you a gift.

So here are 14 presents you can get for your kinda-other half-kinda thing without acting the mentaller.

1. Blow Monkey Nail Dryer

Has she (or he) been late to a previous date due to wet nails? Wet no more with this Blow Monkey Nail Dryer, the perfect Christmas stocking filler to have a laugh and also show that you wanna go on more dates. Cha-ching.

2. Tommy Tiernan Box Set

Gas times for all involved – if you like him, it's genuinely funny; if you don't, it's ironically funny – as well as the opportunity to create a Netflix-and-chill type situation.

3. Concert tickets

Take a quick gawk at their Spotify and see if anyone they like will be in Ireland anytime soon. 

Or a panto.

4. A mix-tape

Or hell, even a playlist. So bad it's actually good.

Stick on some modern love-story tunes such as Rather Be and Music Sounds Better With You to keep it real.

5. Pizza & Fries Blankets

Who could resist the thought of snuggling up together in blankets that look good enough to eat? No one, that's who.



6. Cards Against Humanity 

A way to find out the inner workings of their mind without being a Facebook stalker. Genius.

7. A Bush Portable Bluetooth Speaker

If you're going to actually, y'know, get a serious present.

Easy, cheap present for guys and gals. Get yours from Argos.

8. Dinosaur slippers 

These are sure-fire favourites for everyone and anyone with feet. Also everyone needs fresh, new slippers for Christmas morning, right? Get yours from Tiger

Also, for the messier one in the relationship (not that you're, like, calling it that?)...

9. Mop slippers

A cute gift that will make them laugh, and more importantly make them think.

11. The Beard Book 

Since the world and its mother have beards at the minute, this book could both poke fun at your significant other's facial hair (or lack thereof) and give them beardspiration to keep on growing forever.

12. A replace-face pillow

Because who doesn't want to lay their head on their celebrity crush in an army uniform?

13. And finally, chocolate 

Get yer wan some quality gourmet chocolate from proper chocolatiers such as Bean & Goose or this lego set from Cocoa Atelier – they'll love you forever, or at least until March.
