Gift givers can look for matching or complementary his and her gifts for a couple celebrating an anniversary, close-together birthdays or for a joint Christmas gift. Use the couple's interests as a guide to a gift that is customised to match the personalities and consider customising some ordinary items at home for an inexpensive gift option.
Customised Home Gifts
Gift givers can consider customising ordinary gifts for the home for a couple with any personality. Purchase a set of elegant champagne glasses for a couple who enjoy a fine drink and have the glasses engraved with the couple's names or a special personalised message. A close friend or family member can look for pictures of the couple to make a photo calendar. Look for pictures of the couple's early days together, a first date, wedding pictures and vacation pictures to fill the calendar.
For a couple who enjoy spending time together, consider an experience gift instead of an item. Send a couple who enjoy relaxing together for a couple's massage at a nearby spa or arrange for tickets for an evening dinner cruise. For the adventurous couple, offer them a set of rock-climbing classes, a bungee jumping session for two or a zip-line tour through a national park or mountain range. For a gift on a frivolous budget, arrange for a weekend vacation for the couple to the Bahamas to go cage diving with great white sharks.
The wedding ring does not have to be the only symbolic piece of jewellery a couple wears. Gift givers can offer the couple a pair of necklaces with complementary puzzle piece pendants. Other necklace options include locket necklaces where the gift giver can insert pictures of the couple, and simple matching his and her chains. For a couple who are not often seen wearing a lot of jewellery, consider matching his and her watches instead. The gift giver can also have the watches engraved with the date, the couples' names or a personal message.
Let the couple wear their relationship "on their sleeves". Purchase the couple a pair of matching bathrobes and have their initials monogrammed onto the robes. For a sport-enthusiast couple, find them a set of matching his and her sports jerseys from their favourite team and have their names printed on the backs. For a less expensive gift option, have a special photo of the couple transferred onto matching T-shirts or have the names printed on a pair of baseball caps.
