Couples are among the most people fun to buy for — you can make theira set, turning the gift selection process into an interesting one and expanding your options for thoughtful presents. No matter what occasion you’re shopping for, shopping for both partners at once will kill two birds with one stone: ensuring each of them feel loved, then providing an opportunity for them to connect and laugh over a shared experience. The next time you need to shop for a couple in your life, consider one of the following ideas.
Couples matching underwear sets are a great option for the playful couple in your life, or the one you think ought to be a little more playful. Keep it classy with a solid color or simple print, tailor the gift to suit a particular occasion with holiday-themed underwear, or go all-out with some flirty motifs. Not only will this add a bit of extra spark to the couple’s day-to-day life, but it will also give them something fun to remember you by.
Date Night Gift Cards
supplies are almost universally appreciated by couples. You need not limit the gift to the stereotypical dinner and a movie though. Why not give them a gift certificate for cooking classes, dance lessons, or a paint-and-sip session? Giving them the gift of a unique experience will help them connect and make memories in a new way. Pair this with a set of that flirty underwear if you want to give them a nudge to make sure the night ends well.
“Night In” Gear
Let’s face it: not every date night can be out on the town, especially for introverted couples or those on a budget. This type of couple will love a collection of some things to make their nights in a little more special, so put together a basket that will make their at-home dates interesting. Include items such as a fuzzy blanket to share, cozy slippers for each of them, a favorite bottle of wine, and maybe some nice scented candles and massage oil so they can enjoy themselves in the bedroom at the end of the date night.
If you know one of the hobbies that a couple enjoys together, pick up some things that will support that hobby. Maybe you can gift them some new camping gear, a sports ball, or a new board game. If you’d like to make it extra-special, consider getting the gift personalized with their names to turn it into a keepsake that will be treasured for years to come. You can even consider matching garb, such as personalized sports jerseys from their favorite team, matching aprons, or coordinating t-shirts. Or, throw in a matching robe set so they can wind down together after enjoying their hobby.
For the couple that likes to travel, gear that will fuel their next weekend away, jet-setting trip, or jaunt to nature for the afternoon is a great option. Think insulated cooler backpacks, portable picnic blankets, carry-on luggage, portable gadget chargers, noise-canceling headphones, or travel-friendly outfits. If you’ve got a little cash to spare, lodging gift cards are a perfect add-on to ensure that they have a great romantic getaway.
Picking out couples’ gifts is a fun opportunity to give not just a few mere items, but something that will contribute to an entire experience, near or far. Personalized touches catered to their interests or hobbies will ensure that the gift is memorable, while playful elements help keep their romantic fire burning — and a balance of both will create the perfect gift.
