Shopping for a pair is sometimes even more challenging than gifting to two people individually. But with a couple’s gift you can stretch your budget further or get something even more special. These gift ideas for a couple are great for Christmas, anniversaries, or even as wedding gifts.

I chose these items carefully so that they’re inclusive for all kinds of couples including same sex ones. I also wanted to stay away from anything generic – so if you’re looking for unique, meaningful couple gift ideas I’ve got you covered.

Rivals for Catan Game

Catan is normally for 3 players or more, so it’s not a very good game for couples. This is the 2-player version that a couple can play together for an at-home date night. If this game doesn’t work there are plenty of great 2 player only games out there!

Hotel Quality Sheets

Nothing beats a good night’s sleep. But sheets are one of those things couples don’t always splurge on for themselves. Why not treat them to something truly luxurious? Not only are sheets practical, but they’re great for a couple who has everything.

Cookbook for Two

When you’re busy it’s hard to find time to make proper meals, especially when it’s just the two of you. I know my partner and I tend to skip on prepared dinners when it’s just us, but a cookbook like this is a great way to add in make some easy meals together.

Date Night Game

Pre-planned date nights are fun even for couples who spend a lot of time together. This one is 90s themed and is full of some super-fun throwbacks to those awkward school years.

Food Gift Basket

There are so many options out there but you truly can’t go wrong when gifting food (unless they have food restrictions.) I like this set because it has everything you need to make an Italian themed dinner inside rather than a bunch of snacks.

How to Choose Gift Ideas for a Couple

When you’re shopping for a couple make sure you think about both people when choose a gift. It’s way to common for it to be one sided – usually favouring the person you know best or, in the case of straight couples, the wife. Gifts that they can do (or use) together are best!

Hopefully these gift ideas for a couple have inspired your gift giving for someone’s anniversary, wedding gift, Christmas, or another occasion!
