What is a good Christmas gift to get a couple? Here’s how to choose the best.
Unlike the naughty and nice list, there’s no one bulletproof guide on good couples Christmas gifts (unless you count the one you’re reading!!). That’s because the best Christmas gifts for couples depend on the love birds! So, to help you choose the gift that’s perfect for your perfect pair, here are our top tips:
- Look for a gift that both parties will enjoy — bonus points if they can enjoy it together, like a date night experience or a set of glasses! After all, there’s nothing better than a gift that brings them together.
- When it doubt, get personal! Adding personalization to a couples gift (such as an engraving of their names or wedding date) will transform any object into a meaningful keepsake that celebrates their love story.
- Use their hobbies as inspiration. Are they always off on a hike during the weekends? Or would they rather stay in and watch their favorite movie for the 50th time? Christmas gifts that speak to their go-to past-times are the perfect blend of thoughtful and practical!
How much should you expect to spend on a Christmas gift for a couple?
How much you spend on Christmas gifts for couples will depend on your relationship to the twosome. If they’re new friends (or newly dating), don’t feel like you have to splash out on a super meaningful gift!
On the other hand, if they’re close relatives or two of your ride or dies, you may want to splurge a little more on something special.
Of course, how much you spend on a Christmas gift for a couple will also come down to your budget. We’ve found AMAZING gifts in all price ranges, from under $10 to over $150!
On average, you can expect to spend around $50 for the best Christmas gifts for couples (you can also think of this as $25 per person!) — but don’t miss our section of inexpensive gifts that pack a whole lot of meaning into a small price tag!!
