Gift Tokens

Giving a gift token is doable no matter your budget. Married couples will enjoy the gift of a night out to help them relieve some of the stress that comes from work and life in general. The actual gift token you give is completely up to you, but can range from a gift token for dinner at a nice restaurant to theatre tickets to local sporting event tickets.

Financial Planning Books/Software

Many married couples are worried about their financial futures. A great gift for these couples is something that will help put them on a track to financial prosperity. There are many great books and software systems available today that are designed to help couples plan for everything from a baby to their retirement.

The key to giving this sort of gift is to make sure the couple knows you're only trying to help them plan their financial future, not that you don't think they can handle their money. It might not be a common gift, but it is one that they'll use and likely thank you for down the road.

Video Game System

Video gaming systems aren't just for kids anymore. More and more adults are getting into gaming and for good reason: it helps reduce stress and brings a little bit of fun back into life.

If you can't afford to buy the actual system, ask if the couple already owns one of the popular systems. If so, you can simply purchase a video game to play on the system or even give them a gift card to a local video game store so they can pick one for themselves.

Household Goods

If all else fails, married couples can always use wares for their household. The actual gift you give the couple should depend both on what they need and what you can afford. A good rule of thumb is to casually ask them what kitchen or household items they could use to make their lives easier. It may seem simple, but sometimes the best gifts are practical ones like dishes, appliances and bath towels that married couples can use over and over again.
