Great Gifts for Couples
Below are a number of really great couple gift ideas. Once again, when you’re setting out to buy couple gifts, it’s important to remember that all couples are different.
Not only will age affect the gift ideas you consider, but the personalities of the couples will also play a huge role in determining a great gift.
Gift ideas for married couples might be different than gifts for newlyweds or gifts for new couples.
Just remember to gauge your receivers and you’ll have less of a chance of going wrong. Here are some great gifts for couples that vary by price, style, and utility.
Escape Room Box
With people spending more time at home right now, an escape room subscription box might be the perfect gift for your couple!
Gifts for couples to do together are also super in right now because it means spending quality time together and making the most of moments indoors.
It would make for a super fun date night idea that has them working together to solve the puzzles. That’s a gift we’d definitely happy about receiving!
Is the couple you’re looking to get a gift for into cooking and/or trying out new things? Then why not get them a pasta maker!
Not only does homemade pasta taste delicious, it also gives the couple the opportunity to work together and try out something new – all in the comfort of their own home.
Does your couple go on a lot of adventures or are they really into capturing memories? Then get them an action camera like a GoPro!
While phones are fine for taking photos and videos most of the time these days, in some cases an action camera is just so much better.
This is especially true when it comes to activities related to water and/or speed such as biking.
100 Movies Scratch Off Poster
If your couple is like us and can never decide on a movie, this 100 movies scratch off poster would be the perfect couples Christmas gift!
During the colder winter months, having cozy movie dates is a great idea anyway. And with this useful poster, they don’t have to spend half an hour just trying to decide what to watch.
Robot Vacuum Cleaner
Is your couple not a huge fan of vacuuming? That’s understandable! A robot vacuum cleaner might be the perfect addition to the couples’ home then.
It works for different floor and frees up valuable time that your couple can use for other things – such as spending time together.
Sometimes it’s just nice to display some of your most treasured memories in your home. And this photo display macramé makes that possible!
A big plus is that the macramé looks beautiful as well and definitely makes for an eye-catching accent piece even without the photos! Definitely one of those cute couple gifts you can rely on.
Ever had the issue that you wanted to cuddle on the couch with your partner but the blanket just wasn’t big enough for the both of you? We’ve certainly had that happen – and your couple probably has, too.
That’s where an oversized blanket can make all the difference. It’s a great gift for couples who like to cuddle and who live in a colder climate.
There is just something about an “old fashioned” picnic basket that makes having a picnic feel all the more special. This is definitely one of those good gifts for couples that need to get outside more.
And with a picnic basket like this that includes plates, cutlery, and more your couple really has no excuse to not go on a romantic picnic date!
Ice Cream Maker
Is the couple you want to buy a gift for a fan of ice cream? If they are, then this is the gift for them! Making ice cream at home and trying new flavors can be such a fun experience.
And if ice cream is not their favorite, they can also use the machine to make frozen yogurt. Now they can make their own treat for a movie date night – sounds pretty great to us!
Coffee Sample Set
For the coffee loving couple, a coffee sample set is the perfect gift idea! This set includes various coffee bags from different parts of the world. It gives your couple the chance to try out new flavors and maybe find a new favorite.
Since it is something that they can consume and use up over time, it’s a great (and safe) gift idea if you’re unsure about any of the equipment items on this list. Just make sure that they actually drink coffee!
Related to the coffee sample set above, a (new) set of couples mugs could be a nice gift as well. We like these since they are definitely for couples – and a little bit cliché – but don’t have any writing on them.
This way, you don’t really have to worry about someone’s sense of humor and whether they might be offended by a saying on a mug or not.
Indoor S’mores Maker
We love this indoor s’mores maker! To be honest, we’re huge fans of s’mores but it is often too cold in the spring or fall to have a fire outside.
If your couple is also a fan of s’mores (and lives in a colder climate), consider this as a gift!
This adventure book is a nice way for your couple to collect photos, memories, and meaningful snippets from their life together.
Having one place where you can look back at all of your adventures together is really valuable.
If your couple hasn’t started an adventure book – or a scrapbook, etc. – yet, then this gift might give them the push to do just that.
This is also one of those great gift ideas for couples that have everything since it’s not just another material possession you can buy off the shelf!
For good relationships, communication is key. But sometimes that’s easier said than done. We’ve gotten pretty good at communicating with each other. However, every once in a while have some conversation starters can be great.
This is what the “Our Moments” couples game does. It provides players with 100 thought provoking conversation starters and can help couples learn more about the other person.
Mix Box by Homemade Bakers
Once again we have a gift idea that is related to “doing something together as a couple”. We just believe that these are the best gifts since they can help strengthen a relationship bond.
If your couple has a sweet tooth, then consider getting them a baking box. It’s great for these couples that are occasional bakers but don’t feel 100% comfortable in the kitchen.
The instructions and the packaged ingredients make it easy to follow along and make is easy to do something together as a team.
If one (or both) of the partners keep a journal and like to write, a couples journal might be a suitable gift idea. It gives the couple the chance to answer thought-provoking questions about their relationship and their hopes together.
The journal is great for couples who are very open and vulnerable with each other. However, if there is one partner who really dislikes writing and often suffers from writers block, maybe reconsider this gift.
You don’t want to put pressure on anyone. In a case like this, the adventure book mentioned above might be a better choice.
Home Spa Set
Everyone deserves to be pampered every once in a while – and with a home spa set people can do it in the comfort of their own home.
If you want to gift your couple a relaxing evening at home, this spa gift basket can portray that perfectly. And if the couple has any kids, you could even offer to babysit them for a night!
Is your couple into wine? Then consider these unique wine glasses as a couples gift! These hand blown wine glasses without a stem certainly look unique and will definitely be an eye catcher when having friends over.
If you just want to get the couple a small token that they can carry around with them, then these couple keychains might be what you’re looking for!
We like the classy design of the lock and key – but there are lots of different options available.
Hands Casting Kit
Want to gift your couple a cool way to immortalize them holding hands? Get them a hands casting kit!
The casting itself sounds like lots of fun – and in the end, they’ll have a nice new decor item with a lot of meaning!
New Bed Sheets
Last – but not least – you could also consider getting your couple a nice new set of bed sheets.
If you’ve heard them complaining about their current set or raving about a nice set of sheets they’ve experienced in a hotel before, this might be a gift that they’ll appreciate.
For us bed sheets are something that we don’t really purchase often – even if we’re not 100% happy with our current set.
“They’ll do for a while longer”… is often our thought process and maybe it’s the same for your couple.
Things to Consider When Buying Gifts for Couples
Before you purchase any gifts for couples, there are a few things that you should consider. We’ll talk about some of the most important things in the following section.
It goes without saying that you should consider the couples’ interests before getting them a gift. Ideally you consider both their joint interests and their individual interests – assuming you know them that well.
If not, that’s totally fine. In that case, we’d recommend you opt for one of the safer gifts that are not really tied to a hobby.
Of course the quality of the item that you plan to purchase also matters. While this is important for pretty much any items, it matters even more when it comes to electronic items.
In general, you should always do your due deligence and read the description as well as the product reviews before buying anything.
Another important consideration that you’ll have to have is the price of the gift. Your budget will likely depend on how well you know the couple.
If they are acquaintances, it’s totally acceptable to get them an affordable gift. The gesture of “I thought of you” is sometimes almost more important than the actual gift.
If it’s a couple that you know well, then you might be a little more comfortable upping the spend on the gift you buy. Ultimately, you need to know your budget and stay true to it.
The worst thing you can do is overspend and then be in a worse situation financially. No couple that you know well would wish that upon you!
And there you have it – 21 great gifts for couples. With so many different couple gift ideas out there, you’re bound to find something for that special duo. Just remember to keep your receivers in mind when you buy and you’ll have less of a chance of going wrong!
