Christmas is just around the corner and with folk putting up their Christmas decorations already, your attention may be shifting to Christmas shopping for your favourite couple, family and friends. When it comes to shopping for couples, sometimes it can be a real struggle to know what to get. I’ve compiled a list of gift ideas you should buy this year for the special couple in your lives.
Depending on the couple in question, personalised items are always a fantastic idea. I love to buy personalised items for Parents, Grandparents, Aunties and Uncles as they are always appreciated and provide so much joy to their recipient.
Giving the personal touch
Ahead of Christmas this year, my boys had their photographs taken and I couldn’t wait to use the final photograph for some special gifts this year. We know Christmas is all about sparkle so this silver glitter acrylic photograph block from Funky Pigeon is perfect for gifting to special family and friends. Priced at £9.99 you can choose silver glitter or red hearts to display those treasured memories this Christmas.
Personalised photo wall calendars (1) are a brilliant gift idea for family members as they can really mean so much. I’ve collated these photograph wall calendars for the new year for the grandparents featuring twelve months of the boys from the previous year. I love to share photographs and they often evoke so many lost memories of family holidays, parties and family outings. Asda Photo Calendars are available in various sizes and can be completely unique. Asda Photo Calendars are priced from just £8.50.
Christmas in our house is all about getting cosy in our home and watching Christmas movies together so this photo blanket from Asda Photo (4) is a fantastic gift idea. You can personalise the super soft 38″ x 24″ blanket with a single photograph or a collection of your favourite photographs and the results are stunning. An ideal gift for family members or for friends of happy memories. Priced from £28, this is a beautiful gift to snuggle up to this Christmas.
Giving the gift of time together
Sometimes all couples need together is a bit of time and giving the gift of time at a luxury spa is a perfect way to let your loved ones unwind and relax. Buyagift (2) are the gift experience experts, they have a huge range of gift experiences for everyones taste and budget. Ranging from spa days to gin afternoon teas, indoor skydiving to zoo keeper experiences, there really is something for everyone.
For the couple who like to stay at home and indulge in home cooking, a baking kit subscription could be ideal. Yumbles send out baking kit subscriptions (3) in the post each month as they’re designed to fit through the letter box. You can choose from a 3 or 6 month subscription and each month your recipient will receive the ingredients to bake a yummy treat. Priced from £21 including free delivery.
I love a practical gift for the home at Christmas and this Nanu hot and not duvet is an inspired choice for the couples who love their sleep. This duvet is personalised to the choice of the recipient where one side of the duvet is warmer or cooler than the other side. The warmth rating is based on the tog of the duvet with toasty at 13.5 tog to extra cool at 4.5 tog. Duvets can be personalised to one level above or below on each side. What a brilliant way for a couple of both enjoy their ideal sleeping environment!
To the couple who have it all, why not buy them both a new cosy jumper to wear into 2020. GANT jumpers are luxuriously soft and stylish and would look fantastic. Who doesn’t love a new jumper? There’s a huge choice to choose from and GANT have given you a helping hand with their Best Jumpers Guide. My personal favourites and with my relatives in mind are the Cotton Cable Crew Sweater and the Stretch Cotton Cable V-Neck Sweater.
I love buying thoughtful gifts for couples so I hope you’ve picked up some great ideas for the special couple in your life. Happy shopping!
