Granted, this isn’t often a category you’ll find in a gift guide. But I for one have so many occasions next year to buy couples’ gifts for (weddings, engagement parties, housewarmings – you name it!) that I thought it would be helpful to include a selection here too. Couples’ gifts can be cute, practical and economically sensible too, so here’s a rundown of the pieces I thought would make perfect presents for the pairs in your life…
I know of at least two couples with weddings on the horizon, so this cute Mr & Mrs money box from Sass & Belle is a cute and practical present for them to stash their extra cash in. Something fun and not too pricey either – but be sure to honour the tradition here and start the money box off with a few pounds inside!
Bed linen is always useful, but it’s hard knowing everyone’s taste, especially in the bedroom. These ‘Big Spoon & Little Spoon’ pillowcases draw the line perfectly; they’re fun and kitsch but useful and will work with every colour scheme too. Now, which one is which?
This next gift is a gorgeous idea for couples who are heading off on a honeymoon, or just those that love to travel! Kate Spade stocks these gorgeous leather ‘his and hers’ luggage tags in classic black – super stylish and practical, and sure to delight the recipients.
A little bit of art for the home is always a lovely gift, and I don’t think you can go wrong with this Nick Cranston ‘Love’ canvas print. It might be pink but it doesn’t feel overly feminine, plus the small size means it’s not going to overwhelm an existing display or colour scheme. It’s fun, fresh and modern, and perfect for the couple who love to decorate and accessorise their home.
For couples who enjoy entertaining, this beautiful gold confetti carafe would be a fabulous gift. It’s fun and stylish, and the perfect accessory for dinner and drinks. Bonus points if you give them a bottle of gorgeous wine to go with it!
These gold alphabet letter ornaments were a huge trend last year, but their popularity hasn’t really waned. A monogrammed gift is a classic, and you can supersize it with these letters; just choose their first initials and throw in the ampersand for good measure! It’s a classy gift that adds a little touch of personality to their home.
Finally, you can’t go wrong with a set of mugs, and these ones from H&M are a particular favourite. Cheap and very cheerful, just pop them in a beautiful box for a thoughtful and useful gift they’re sure to love.
