We’ve given you a hefty handful of gift guides for specific people this year, but gifting to one single individual isn’t always the case — that’s where couples gifts come in.
So, when is it acceptable to give a joint gift? Here are a few predicaments you might find yourself in:
- You don’t know either partner well enough individually to give a personal gift, but you know you have to get them something
- Your cousin married a horrendous guy but you can’t give a gift only to her right in front of him
- They’re newly married and you forgot to give them a wedding gift
- You need to buy one gift instead of two to disguise that you’re on a budget
But of course, there’s also the best case scenario: They’re both your best friends and you’d love to find your favorite pair a gift that they can both use together, forever.
Instead of gifting some atrocious teapot set that looks like it’s straight off your grandma’s wedding registry from 1940, we’re suggesting modern stuff that can improve their lives on a daily basis: Amazon Fire TV devices, double-duty kitchen appliances, personalized drinking items, and more. These are items to slow down mornings where they barely get to see each other, to spice up date night, to make keeping track of kids easier, or just to celebrate finding each other.
It may seem like just another tech gadget to you, but to them, it’s the helping hand their relationship deserves.
