Gift giving when you are dating can get complicated at times because you always wonder what makes a great gift for your partner. But I’ve come up with a list of ‘any time of the season’ couple gifts that are creative and practical. You can give these gifts to your partner for any occasions like birthdays and anniversaries or if you just want to show that you care.
Making Personalized Love Coupons
Love coupons make a great gift for any occasion for that special someone in your life. This is how the love coupons work: Each coupon contains different invitations “Cuddle time…private time to talk and cuddle together.” Another coupon can say, “This coupon entitles the bearer to a full body massage complete with oils and lotions.” After printing the different coupons, place them strategically where you think your partner will find them – briefcases or in the current book your partner is reading is just a few examples. Or you can place several love coupons in his/her Christmas stocking.
A Basket of Treats
The little things in love matter the most, so instead of buying one expensive gift, you can put together a basket of treats of the little things that your mate needs on a regular bases. For the ladies, how about buying her favorite shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, and some travel toiletries that she can use when she is on go. For the guys, a basket of treats can have a USB key chain, external hard ware, good pens with an agenda book for his work. The key to putting together a basket of treats for your partner is to think about their daily necessities. If your woman likes literature, chocolate, and cosmetics a great basket of treats could include the current issue of her favorite magazine or the newest book she wanted to read and a box of chocolates along with her favorite lip gloss. A basket of treats always works like a charm for any occasion.
A Jigsaw Puzzle of the Both of You
Instead of having a picture of the both of you put into a photo frame; why not make the picture into a jigsaw puzzle? This makes a great gift for couples who like to play board games together because you can take apart the pieces of your picture and put the jigsaw puzzle together of the both of you. It’s playing a game while having couple time.
A practical and useful gift that any partner will appreciate is a cellular phone. To make the cell phone gift special, you can have it personalized to your partner by choosing their favorite color or include some cute accessories like a case or an extra car charger.
Gift Certificate for a Day at the Spa
Always a cool gift for women, a gift certificate for a day at the spa including a facial and massage works well for a woman’s birthday or anniversary gift. If all else fails and you can’t find a gift for your loved one, a day of pampering and relaxation is a perfect gift for the woman you love.
Message in a Bottle
For the poetic and those who like to express their thoughts in written word, the message in the bottle is a gift of words for your partner. At first, you write a month’s worth of short messages on decorated stationary, fold them, and then place them into a decorated jar. Give your partner the jar, and have him/her open one daily to remind each other of your special relationship.
