Sometimes the best gifts are the ones you get for you and your spouse or significant other. So, that's what we're looking at today! Whether you're looking for a gift to bring to your friends' Christmas party or to send to friends far away, here are my ideas for the couples on your list (though they'd be great for a single person, too!).
I got Date Night In as a Christmas gift a few years ago and have loved it ever since. First of all, it has fantastic recipies like greek tostadas and salted chocolate chip cookies. Second, I love how this book was created: Ashley is a blogger (creator of Not Without Salt) and, when she and her husband were first married, they didn't have much money (like the rest of us!) but still wanted a date night so they started having date nights in. Ashley makes dinner and her husband makes drinks and they spend a quiet night sitting down to dinner and connecting. If this isn't the perfect gift for a couple, I don't know what is!
How cute are these mugs from Williams Sonoma? A pair of these plus the couple's favorite alcohol or mixer would make a perfect gift to bring to a dinner or Christmas party, especially since you can get them monogrammed!
I talked about this cheese board in my homecook gift guide but I think with some cheese it would also be the perfect gift to bring to a potluck Christmas party or with you to dinner. The recipients will love not only the addition of food but also that they get to keep the classy, thoughtful cheese board as well!
If you're looking for a smaller, more casual, or lower cost option, you can never go wrong with a pretty bottle opener plus a bottle of wine they love (or you love!).
This wreath is festive, thougtful, and must smell amazing since it's made of bay leaves. Plus, how convenient if you know they love to cook!
If you're sending a gift to someone far away, these Maine items would be fun!
Another fun gift to send if your recipients are into coffee would be a Starbucks subscription. I love subscriptions because your gift will extend well beyond Christmas and they'll think about (and appreciate!) you with every new cup of coffee they share.
If the couple you're thinking of is more into tea than coffee then this fancy electric tea kettle and some of their favorite tea would make a great gift. With the rose gold color, it's a bit fancier than what they would probably choose and yet a practical and thoughtful gift.
That's a wrap! What are you getting the couples on your list?
