Yup, we're already talking about it. Christmas is quickly upon us and the rush to get the perfect gifts for each person on your list is underway. What do you get the people in your life? This can be especially difficult when you're dealing with a "couple". Those two people in a relationship that you might only have a strong connection to one of them, but you don't want to be disrespectful to the other; what do you do?
We have been asking ourselves the same question and thought we could help you out with 9 suggestions of what to get those couples on your Christmas list.
1. Board Games
A throwback to growing up, board games are a great way to spend some quiet quality time for any couple. It is also a great way to have another couple over for a quiet night of food, drink, and fun. If you're fishing for that double-date invite, this is the way to go.
2. Free Babysitting
As a parent myself, this is the greatest gift that you could ever give any couple that has children; a night away from the insanity of raising kids without having to worry about finding a babysitter.
3. Cooking Classes
Couples cooking together can be a lot of fun. I would assume that it would be more fun if both people knew how to fry an egg? Sending out a couple for a tandem cooking class can give them another aspect of their relationship that they can do together at home.
4. Something absolutely ridiculous
You don't have to get them something that is "useful". You could go out of your way to get them something fun, quirky and reasonably unique. I don't know, perhaps, his and hers adult onesies? Make it fun and they will love it all the same.
5. Tickets to the "show"
It doesn't matter what the show is; ballet, a concert, a movie, or the comedy club. A night out on the town can be just what the doctor ordered for any couple. And if the tickets are free all the better.
Not liking any of these options? We still have four more for ya!
6. A Painting Class
"Paint Nights" have become quite popular these last couple of years. Getting together with a random group of strangers as you attempt to paint your "masterpiece" is a lot of loose fun. Sending a couple out to try it, alongside a nice glass of wine is a great Christmas gift idea.
7. A bike built for two
Though this can be a fun idea, it's more a gag gift unless the couple in question love to bike together already. Either way, it is a thoughtful gift for a couple that needs to get out there and spend more time together. Or maybe you're just trying to be an jerk LOL.
8. A picnic basket
Heading out on a romantic picnic might seem a tad cliche, but gifting a couple a nice basket of their own might encourage them to give it a shot. Getting outside to enjoy each other's company is a great way to spend time together.
9. A pizza stone.
I would have thought this was a stupid idea until I got my own stone. Getting this for the couple on your list will make movie and pizza nights a lot more enjoyable for them. Cooking the pizza of their choice as opposed to ordering some greasy mess will always lighten the mood.
