Because love is worthy of celebration, and as a couple’s sidekick, it’s your friend-duty to deliver only the best of gifts to keep their romance alive! So what makes an awesome gift for that cool couple in your life? In a world where many of us already have everything we need, we believe the best gifts for couples are useful, entertaining, and inspire them to embark on adventures and create lasting memories.
Map of Love
The Map of Love is our favorite gift idea for couples who see the world as their playground! This is for that couple in your life who are always jetting off on their next adventure, struck with a bad case of wanderlust- at least they have each other! Berlin-based illustrator Jana has created an inspiring space for couples to track the places they’ve been, their relationship milestones around the world, and the places they want to go together.
Double sleeping bag
Especially for outdoorsy couples who love camping in cooler weather, the shared bag guarantees increased warmth and extra cuddles. Nature lovers will be stoked to receive a double sleeping bag for their next big celebration! This can be a pricier gift but is an extremely appealing luxury for camping couples.
Ah, the perfect gift for the competitive couple in your life. Board games remind us of the importance of play- with a healthy dose of competition. Depending on just how competitive that couple is, you may or may not want to invite yourself over for games night... play at your own risk! Our recommendations are Cards Against Humanity for couples who like to get down and dirty or a mini foosball table for those that like to get more active on games night!
Sushi Making kit
The opportunity to get hands on together in the kitchen is one of our favorite gifts for couples. A sushi making kit comes with all the tools and instructions needed to make your friends feel like master chefs, even if you know to the contrary! If you want to go above and beyond, add the fresh ingredients they’ll need to get started too.
DIY Date Night Jar
For those who have made Netflix and chill nights a little too regular... and hey, that’s not to say we don’t love a good movie night, but we all know that couple. Help rekindle their energy! The DIY Date Night Jar is the perfect gift to get your favorite cosy couple off the couch and doing something different. All you’ll need is a mason jar, popsicle sticks and a sharpie/ paint pen. Write a creative date idea on each popsicle stick- if you’re needing some inspiration, we love these ideas.
This one doesn’t need much explanation! Bring back an old-school classic to help your favorite couples capture their adventures! A polaroid camera is guaranteed to be a hit, especially for couples who are obsessed with getting that insta-worthy shot, whether they like to admit it or not.
Beer making kit
Tired of being dragged around to local breweries by the beer obsessed couple in your life? Okay, maybe you won’t get too tired of that, but a beer making kit is a unique gift sure to be appreciated by beer fanatics and those who aren’t afraid to get a little messy in the kitchen together. And fun fact, beer tastes better when it’s homemade with love!
You know that couple whose favorite place to hang out is the park, always prepared with a big blanket and plenty of snacks? A picnic backpack brings back the original picnic basket but in a modern, practical way. Sure to please those who know how to have a proper day at the park, a good pack has an insulated compartment for wine or drinks, plus ample storage for food, plates, utensils, and even games.
For shacked up couples who haven’t gotten around to getting key appliances like a panini press- because yes, a panini press is an essential household item. Transform boring sandwiches into mouth-watering meals like a tuna melt, turkey, fig, gorgonzola panini, or even a grilled salmon BLT... are you hungry yet? If you’re feeling generous, we recommend gifting a panini cookbook like this one with the press.
Because who doesn’t love a hammock? You definitely can’t go wrong with the gift of relaxation. Ideal for couples with a backyard who enjoy breezy Sunday mornings leafing through a good book, or those who take frequent trips into nature. Plus, a backyard hammock means an opportunity for you to enjoy a leisurely hammock swing too!
