Buying a gift for one person can be hard … but buying a gift for a couple can be even more of a challenge.
What do they already have? What do they need? What do they like? What are they into?
What possible gift could you ever buy that they would equally appreciate and be able to enjoy together?
Guess what? There are lots of them. Whether you’re looking to impress an adventurous outdoor pair or a duo who prefers to spend time at home, we’ve got you covered.
Christmas gift? Birthday gift? Anniversary gift? Valentine’s Day gifts?
Here are the 49 gift ideas for couples to enjoy in 2022 (and for years to come).
While two watches might not necessarily be the cheapest gifts on our list, they will last for decades and not go out of style. The Scandanavian time wear is sleek, stylish and versatile. Nordgreen watches are customizable by the dial, strap, face and size, making it easy to add that personal touch. Plus, if the couple decides they want to swap out their bands for matching ones, they can do that!
You really can’t go wrong with any of these Danish designs.
We love the Custom Map Serving Tray for a few reasons, but mostly because it’s customizable! This square tray is made from natural mango wood and can be personalized with a map that shows any location.
Personalize it with the location of their first home, where they got married, where they got engaged or the intersection of that dive bar where they met. It’s perfect for holding drinks and snacks as well as serving your loved one breakfast in bed, making it a unique gift that’s also practical.
Pair it with a bottle of wine and some cheese, and they can have a DIY charcuterie date night with some Netflix and chill.
Whether they love camping, boating, tailgating or hanging out on the beach, the Yeti Tundra 45 Hard Cooler is the gift that they can use over and over again.
This is one of the best stainless steel coolers money can buy, and it’s big enough to hold 28 beers on ice. This thing can really take a beating, and it keeps food, drinks and ice-cold even when it’s unbearably hot outside. No wonder it’s a bestseller.
Perfect for the couple who loves to cuddle up under the stars, the Kelty Tru Comfort Double Wide Sleeping Bag will keep them warm and cozy in temperatures as low as 20 degrees Celsius. This sleeping bag includes two built-in blankets and a hood that fits two individual pillows inside.
If they’re movie buffs or massive sports fans, the Bose TV Speaker is a gift they’re sure to love. This speaker is one of the most affordable speakers in the Bose collection, but it offers amazing sound quality. It’s also Bluetooth-connected so you can pair it with your phone or tablet to play music.
We love the sleek design that will fit into any home decor.
From Thai food to rustic Italian dishes to desserts to cocktails, the chefs at Sur la Table host 90-120 minutes classes just about every day of the week.
Maybe your couple has no idea how to cook. Maybe they’re looking to learn a new cuisine or style. Either way, this is an excellent way for them to learn how to cook good food that they can both enjoy!
Once they’ve learned how to cook with their virtual cooking classes, they can order up some tasty new ingredients with a Blue Apron gift card and tackle some new recipes. This is an awesome gift for the foodie couple who loves to eat and enjoy dinner together but doesn’t want to go through the hassle of grocery shopping with the pre-measured out meal kits.
Every couple needs a little R&R, and there’s no better way to do so than soaking in the tub, then sliding on a comfy robe and slippers.
Detailed with “his” and “hers” monograms, the His & Hers Robes include two micro fleece robes that have custom embroidery options. They’re perfect for wearing at any time of year and make a great gift for newlyweds.
With a timeless look that never goes out of style, the Personalized Framed Doormat is the gift they’ll use every single day of the week. Made from natural woven fibers, this doormat has a simple look and can be personalized with a name, address, or greeting up to 8 characters.
The simple design and classic style looks great in front of any door, whether they own their own home or live in an apartment complex, and would be a perfect gift for a housewarming party.
They can get outside, enjoy the sun, and relax for hours in this two-person double hammock. This hammock features a wide cotton bed and comes with its own stand and a carrying bag.
They can use it on their porch, in their backyard or even at the beach – and they’ll never have to worry about finding two trees to tie it to.
11. Tandem Bike
Is there anything that says “we’re a couple” more than a bicycle built for two? We think not.
The Kulana Lua Tandem Adult Beach Cruiser Bike is made for the couple who likes to ride on two wheels. It’s got two seats, disc brakes, balloon tires, and adjustable handlebars and stems that make it comfortable for riders of different heights. Whether the happy couple likes to roam the countryside or race through the city streets, this bike offers them a unique, fun way to travel.
Maybe they’re practicing for their first dance at their wedding. Maybe they’re just always willing to try new things. In either case, they can use this gift to learn all sorts of ballroom dances that they probably don’t know how to do.
BONUS: they can do it virtually from home, so your favorite couple doesn’t have to embarrass themselves in front of an entire room of people.
This set features a solid wood case with a reversible top with a Monopoly board on one side and a Scrabble board on the other. It includes all of the pieces for both games and a rotating Lazy Susan so everyone playing can get the best view of the board.
We can’t imagine many guys wanting to wear this, but the Two Halves of One Heart Pendant Set could be perfect for a same-sex female couple.
This necklace set features two delicate chains with pendants shaped like one-half of a heart. When you put them together, they create one complete heart. So sweet.
Each pendant can be engraved with a name, so each person can wear their partner’s name around their neck and would make a thoughtful gift for Valentine’s Day.
The best part is that the couple can enjoy any adventure or experience that suits their mood and style.
They can cozy up on the couch or snuggle up in bed under this super soft and plush Faux Fur Alpaca Throw. This blanket is dense yet soft, with faux fur on one side and solid fabric on the other. When the weather gets cool, or the AC gets too chilly, they’ll have a soft and stylish way to warm up together.
Faux fur throws come in all sorts of colors, but we love this white one for its clean, modern look and versatility. It coordinates with any couch, bedding or accent chair, regardless of the couple’s style.
Even if they wouldn’t be caught dead wearing matching outfits outside, these King and Queen Matching Sweatsuits are perfect for getting super comfy, cozy and cute at home.
These sweatsuits feature pullover hoodies with long sleeves, kangaroo pockets, and “King” or “Queen” printed on the chest. The matching jogger pants feature an easy pull-on fit with a drawstring waist and either a “K” or “Q” on the thigh.
These sweats are sold as four individual pieces, so you can also order king and king or queen and queen sets for a same-sex couple.
Perfect for the outdoorsy type, the Camping Love Seat is comfy, easy to carry, and easy to set up in any outdoor setting. From tailgating parties to camping trips, this portable chair ensures that they’ll have a comfortable place to sit next to their best friend, no matter where they go.
Foldable and packed inside a convenient carry bag, this double-wide chair includes a sturdy steel frame, cup holders on each arm, and nylon mesh panels to keep you cool when it’s hot outside.
Game night meets date night in the Ultimate Game for Couples. This fun game includes over 200 cards designed as conversation starters and try funny challenges.
Couples can play it one-on-one, or they can team up and play against other couples. It’s a fun way to get to know each other better or to prove to other couples that you and your partner already know each other inside and out.
Do you know a couple that’s super into coffee? If so, buy them a Chemex coffee maker.
The Chemex Classic Coffee Maker is one the best makers for pour-over coffee (which a lot of coffee aficionados are really into these days).
It’s got a cool, sleek look to fit into any kitchen design, and it comes in a variety of different sizes to make between three and thirteen cups.
Just be sure to include some Chemex coffee filters – they’ll need those to do the brew.
Who doesn’t love a brand new sheet of sheets? Brooklinen calls their Luxe Core Sheet Set internet-famous for a reason – it has almost 14,000 nearly 5-star reviews!
Available in a variety of colors and patterns, this set is made from 480 thread count long-staple cotton and has a super soft and smooth feel.
This sheet set includes one fitted sheet, one flat sheet and two pillowcases. Not sure of the couple’s duvet situation or bedroom color scheme? Play it safe and stick to solid white.
For the couple that loves to relax with a cocktail or two, the Moscow Mule Copper Mug Set includes everything they’ll need to make the perfect mules. This set features four solid copper mugs, a copper shot glass for measuring out the right amount of booze, and four copper cocktail straws.
Want to make this gift even better? Include a bottle of vodka, and you’ve got a solid engagement gift!
If you’re looking for a gift to be treasured for a lifetime, our final couples’ gift is where it’s at. The Custom Wedding Poster is available in a variety of different retro-inspired motifs and is the kind of gift a couple will hang up the second it arrives. (And they’ll leave it on display forever).
What makes this such a special gift is that you can fully customize your print. Just tell the artist the couple’s hair and skin color, the location of their wedding, their anniversary date, and other specific details. You can help them add a little personal connection to their living room or bathroom that is different than a wedding picture. This one-of-a-kind keepsake gift is about as unique as it gets!
24. A Subscription
A subscription is the gift that keeps on giving! There is pretty much a subscription box for anything these days, from gourmet snacks to beauty bundles or home decor essentials. Do they have a pup? Maybe a dog toy subscription would be the perfect gift!
The more you know the couple, the better the subscription you can pick out. If you know them really well and you know they won’t be offended, maybe a sexy subscription box could add a little flair for the loving couple?
Another subscription option is The DateBox Club. We chatted with Mike & Maureen, the founders of DateBox Club, about their club and they shared a couple of highlights with us. “We know how important it is to stay connected with your partner. We make date night easy and fun so you can enjoy each other on a deeper level. We think of everything you need for your perfect date night and include it in our monthly DateBoxes. The Gift Of Easy-Peasy Intimacy DateBoxClub transforms your home into your new favorite date night venue.” The box is delivered to your door so you and your honey can be surprised and delighted by the contents as you experience an at-home date night.
That sounds like a win-win to us!
25. Airbnb Gift Card
While we aren’t super fond of gift cards, can you really put a price tag on an experience? Maybe there is a bucket list location they are dying to go on vacation, and you want to help make it happen. Perhaps they are a long-distance couple and want to meet up for a mini getaway.
No one ever needs an excuse to get out of town and enjoy themselves. This couple gift is a great way to help them enjoy an experience but still let them have full control over the location and price point.
This 100 Dates Bucket List Scratch Poster is so cute. With 100 date ideas for the couple to scratch off, there are so many fun adventures for them to enjoy. From romantic to unique ideas, there is bound to be something on this list the couple has never done together, no matter how long these love birds have been together.
Once the couple has completed the date, they can scratch off the date from their bucket list poster.
If they are limited on space, you could also opt for The Adventure Challenge Couples Edition, which is a little more personal.
27. Matching Undies
If the couple already has everything, but you want to give them a gift they will both enjoy, what about a pair of Matching Undies? MeUndies offers matching couples underwear in over 50 different colors and patterns. From adventurous patterns to classic patterns, you can definitely find something for the couple in your life.
They also offer a month-to-month subscription if you want to get them a few pairs!
Your gift recipients don’t necessarily need to be newlyweds in order to see the value in this gift. Available on Amazon, The Couple’s Cookbook is designed to help any couple learn how to go from cooking for one to two or back again, how to start cooking at home more frequently with newbie-friendly recipes and even how to set up a home bar cart, making this book ideal as a housewarming gift for new homeowners or even just for those couples who are unsure in the kitchen.
Whether or not your favorite couple likes to get in the kitchen, you can bring a little romance to their dining experience with this picnic basket set that includes everything they’ll need for a meal for two (or more) in the great outdoors (or just on the living room floor on movie night).
The lined basket comes with a silverware pouch, four plates, four wine glasses, four spoons, four knives, four forks, four napkins, one corkscrew, one cheese knife and one cheese board.
This gift makes an affordable wedding or anniversary gift. The set of bath towels proudly shows off your couple’s married status, with its elegant embroidery proclaiming the Mister and Misses of the household. You can buy just the matching bath towels, or a set of bath towels, hand towels and fingertip towels, whatever you think is going to be most useful for your recipients.
For the adventurous couple that just needs a little bit of extra help deciding what to do on date night, this Adventure Challenge: Couples Edition book is filled with secret experiences and activity ideas that they won’t uncover until they scratch away the foil to reveal the prompt (though you can pick prompts ahead of time-based on things like cost or how much time you have).
After uncovering the prompt and completing the surprise activity, users can add photos and notes about their experience, to create a one-of-a-kind scrapbook that any gift recipient will cherish.
Is your favorite couple stuck in the past, drink-wise? If they’re still sharing the same light beers they enjoyed in college or taking shots of tequila on date night, help them up their cocktail game just a bit, with this cocktail class from Uncommon Goods.
The class is specifically focused on smoked cocktails and comes with a smoking cloche. Your couple will just need to buy the ingredients they’ll need for the cocktails ahead of time and then tune in to the live, online class.
If, though, you know you’ll never drag your favorite couple away from their wine, give them this Vinglacé gift set that comes with a wine chiller and two stemless wine glasses.
The modern and fashionable set comes in six colors and the chiller and wine glasses both keep drinks at the perfect temperature. They’re also durable and safe to take on the go, so your couple can take their drinks tailgating, camping or just to the backyard.
These top-ranked custom bracelets are available on Etsy and can be engraved with whatever you like, for a personalized gift with thought. They’re simple and chic, as well as unisex, so can be incorporated into your couples’ favorite outfits, no matter their individual styles.
35. The Solo Stove
What’s cozier than gathering around a blazing fire once the weather turns chilly? If your couple doesn’t have a fireplace in their home or they don’t have space outdoors for a traditional fire pit, give them this modern option.
The Solo Stove is completely smokeless and requires no gas or propane. Just set it up outdoors and you’re ready to go. The unique design creates a very contained but roaring wood fire that results in no extra unburnt wood to clean up. The stove is totally portable, as it’s relatively small and lightweight, so it’s a great option for camping or taking to the beach.
If you’re specifically searching for a holiday gift or Christmas gift for your favorite couple, dig out some photos of the lucky pair and use the magic of Shutterfly to create a personalized Christmas ornament. Shutterfly is incredibly easy to use and affordable, with fast shipping to guarantee your gifts are ready for the holidays.
For couples who love a good laugh and a good drink, this game from Uncommon Goods is a must. The card game Drunk in Love gives your favorite couple challenges like “correctly guess your partner’s love language or drink” or “say your first impression of your partner or drink.”
The fun game makes for a unique activity on date nights or just any ol’ weekday night when your favorite couple is looking for something new to do.
The Homesick candle brand designs candles that are intended to bring up a certain memory. While the brand got its start creating candles designed to mimic the smells and scents of favorite cities and states, it now offers candles that smell like a variety of experiences — including one’s wedding day.
The Just Married candle brings in notes of Champagne and flowers, but you can also make your own custom candle if you think you can do a better job combining scents that your favorite loving couple will adore.
Firstly, who doesn’t love cheese? Secondly, what’s a more romantic meal than fondue? An experiential meal that doubles as a great date idea, fondue is something every couple should try at least once.
Help your fav foodie couple out with this cast iron fondue set that comes with a cast iron fondue pot, stand, burner and base plate, plus six fondue forks.
40. The Lovebox
This unique gift pairs with an app, through which users send photos, love notes and drawings. Then, the app makes the messages appear within the actual, physical Lovebox, on a screen that’s revealed when the box’s lid is lifted.
It’s a fun way for a couple to send one another sweet messages that are more of a little surprise versus just another text message. The Lovebox may even inspire couples to send those messages more regularly, as each individual’s box is a frequent reminder.
41. A Custom Spotify Print
If your favorite couple is all about music, or maybe music brought them together, order this custom Spotify wall art now. The print looks just like the Spotify app on your phone, but, instead of album cover art, shows an illustration of the couple and, instead of the album and song title, shows the message of your choosing, like the couple’s names (though some shoppers do choose to display a favorite song on the customized print).
The print’s cost only covers the digital file, so you’ll need to get it actually printed elsewhere, but the budget-friendly cost of the couple portrait alone is well worth it.
Always listening to your favorite couple complain about fights over the few outlets in the bedroom? If they’re always ending up with two few spots to charge their many devices, give them a hand with this three-in-one Apple-specific charging station. It’s designed to charge an iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods all at once, with only one outlet needed.
For the picnicking couple or just the park-going couple that’s always packing around multiple blankets for lots of room to spread out, go with this oversized, Turkish cotton outdoor towel that’s designed to repel sand, dirt and other debris, while also drying super-fast.
If the couple you know prefers to sit off the ground rather than on it, help them still cozy up every time they’re in the great outdoors with this loveseat-style camping chair for two.
The loveseat camp chair is available in orange and black, folds away for easy storage when it’s not being used and can hold up to 440 pounds.
Even cuddlers know it’s the case — sometimes you just need your own blanket. Especially when your partner rolls over and steals all the cover away while they’re completely dead to the world and definitely not budging until sunrise.
This blanket and sheet set is designed to solve just this problem. The blanket is split in half, right down the middle, so everyone can use their blanket how they like, no tug-of-war required. The blanket and sheet both come back together right at the foot of the bed, so it all stays tucked in, and the sheets are oversized, so there’s enough fabric to go around.
For the couple that’s been around the block a few times and spends most of their meals in relative silence, shake things up with this cube of conversation starters. The gift box comes with 135 cards with conservation prompts that are designed to get things, and keep things, flowing. Think questions like, how do you think your partner is different from their parents, or what’s the most romantic thing your partner’s ever done for you.
For the couple who just wants to share everything, this set of connected earbuds is a must. The simple solution is just two sets of earbuds with one connector, so two users can watch the same device in tandem, and in private. It’s a great gift especially for traveling couples who may want to listen to the same music or podcast or watch the same shows or movies while on the plane or train.
A crafty date night DIY activity, this kit allows couples to create a plaster statue of their clasped or intertwined hands. This couples handcasting kit comes with everything they might need, including the molding bucket, molding powder, casting stone, sandpaper, sealant and instructions. The seller also offers an instructional video tutorial online.
49. A Gift Card
Don’t dismiss a gift card as not a great gift idea until you really think about it. What better way to allow the happy couple to buy exactly what they want and need?
Whether you purchase a gift card to their favorite home decor store so they can outfit their new house, a gift card to the local nursery so they can get a start on that landscaping or a gift card to a favorite restaurant so they can treat themselves to a nice date night, there are all sorts of thoughtful gift card options to consider.
What Are the Perfect Gifts for Couples?
There’s no one “perfect gift” for every couple. It all depends on who they are, how they live, and what they are into. Sure, a set of wine glasses, cheeseboard or personalized cutting board would be adequate gifts. They are also pretty played out and have been the go-to for wedding gifts and other special moments long enough.
When in doubt, gifting something practical is safe. Buy them something they can actually use or something that they probably wouldn’t buy for themselves.
After all, if the gift comes from you, they’re sure to love it, no matter what it may be!
