Couples Gift Guide

We've reached the age where when someone asks what I want for the holidays, I am always at a complete loss because anything I truly want, I usually buy for myself. What Gary and I have ended up doing the last few years is joining forces and asking for joint gifts. Things that we will both get great use out of and are things for the house that we have really wanted to upgrade! Some of these gifts are also great for new parents or newlyweds!

  • At the top of our list this year is a new crock pot! We use ours weekly - at least 2-3 times a week and it's time we got an upgrade. As new parents, the gift of not having to cook dinner when we get home from work is the best! 
  • Along the same lines for new parents and any coffee lover is a coffee maker! I absolutely love our Nespresso machine and feel like it's another gift that just keeps on giving! Especially since you could always gift a machine and the limited edition pods as a great gift. The frother is also a great add on gift! I prefer the mini sizes of the machines because they don't take up too much space and are really sleek! 
  • If you have friends or family that love to entertain, one of my favorite gifts to give and to get is anything personalized. We have a few personalized and monogrammed cheese boards and I love taking them out for parties! 
  • I love when people come over with flowers, but undoubtedly never have a great vase to put the flowers in! I thought it would be a great gift idea to not only come to someones home with the flowers, but to take it a step further and gift them a new vase as well. Another item that can be personalized as well! 
  • One of my favorite gifts to bring over is a bottle of wine - of course it's an easy gift to give, but I think gifting a nice wine rack or bottle opener to go along with it is a nice touch! You could always do a wine of the month club as well! 
  • Couple friends who are celebrating their first married holiday together or any milestone would love something to commemorate that, like a personalized ornament. I actually had one made for us that says "First Christmas as a family of 3" and then I also got one to celebrate Sophia's First Christmas! 
  • Something a bit pricier but on our wish list this year are Nest Protect Fire Alarms. While we certainly don't expect to have our entire home outfitted in one go, having one changed at a time is nice! Don't tell, but a certain someone is getting this for Christmas! 
  • I know that a nice throw isn't the most unique gift, but it's certainly one that can be combined with an apple gift card, popcorn & candy! A movie night at home all cozy is a great and fun twist on a seemingly simple gift!

What would you gift to a couple?

  11. I love that y'all are asking for joint gifts -- I think that's a great idea -- might have to steal it!

  13. Brill ideas! We love our Nespresso - it would make a fab gift - super compact too. A vase is a good one too, as it is not something we'd often think to buy ourselves - I am always running out of them (or can't find them haha). Our next couples' wish list gift is a coffee grinder - for the beans and the smell! I hope you all have a lovely Thanksgiving xx

  18. It's too funny you posted about that Nest alarm, because I just got one yesterday! I find that stuff to be so neat - it's a great gift idea! My brother and sister in law always include couple / family gift ideas on their wish list - it's nice because I can get each of them something smaller, but then something they collectively appreciate, too!
