Finding the right gifts for couples can be tricky. After all, the gift ideas have to please both sides of the equation. If done right, these gifts are used together with joy. They can be subscription boxes that create date nights at home or wedding registry gifts they might never expect. Consider more practical gifts for grandparents who have been together for decades or whimsical tokens for newer couples still dating.
If you’re not sure that one gift is really enough, you can always start with a combination of girlfriend gifts and boyfriend gifts. We also found last-minute gifts for anniversaries and Amazon Prime gifts for when you’re pressed for time. With these ideas for every type of couple and budget, you’re sure to win them both over!
The most thoughtful and appreciated gifts for couples are ones they’ll both actually use. Duos that spend most of their time together in the morning will make the most out of gifts for coffee lovers. Big-hearted charitable types appreciate gifts that give back, while dog parents get a kick out of personalized pet gifts. No matter what you choose, make sure you pick something they’ll both enjoy receiving.

Wine-sipping duos will toast to you after you give them a genius Coravin Wine Preservation System.

For entertainers: Personalized Charcuterie Board
If they’re always inviting you over for wine, cheese and small bites, that’s exactly why a personalized charcuterie board is one of the most thoughtful gifts for couples they’ll really use. Embellish it with a surname or special date, and then watch their eyes light up when they receive it. It’s one of our favorite personalized gifts and a winner for every type of host.
For adventurers: National Parks Travel Map
Couples can document their adventures on this handmade map. Measuring 10 inches tall and 16.5 inches wide, this wooden map shows every National Park in the U.S. It comes with corresponding cutout green trees that they can proudly place on the map once they’ve visited the park. Gifting experiences is also a way to make lifelong memories.
“My boyfriend and I received this map as a gift last Christmas to celebrate our quest to visit every National Park,” says Senior Shopping Editor Megan Mowery. “It’s been so fun and gratifying to mark each trip with a tree—plus, this map is high-quality and stylish, so we’re proud to display it in our home.”

For TikTok-obsessed couples: Countertop Nugget Ice Maker
If there’s one viral product that truly lives up to the hype, it’s this smart nugget ice maker. It makes over a pound of perfect nugget ice per hour and holds up to three pounds at a time.

Allergies are no joke. Whether your favorite couple suffers from them seasonally or year-round as I do, then this large space air purifier will be a welcome gift. It cleans the air continuously, ridding it of allergens and 99.97% of fine particles.
Unlike other air purifiers, this one also rids the air of formaldehyde, which can come from things like air fresheners, household cleaners and even furniture.

For foodies: The Chef & The Dish Private Cooking Class
Did you know that cooking together can actually strengthen a relationship? With a private cooking class, couples can travel around the world and learn to create an authentic dish from a country of their choice from the comfort of their very own kitchen (it’s like a wellness retreat right from home). They’ll have a live video call with a chef who will teach them how to make three delicious dishes.
During the pandemic, I watched the sun come up in Thailand as Chef Joy taught me how to make Pad Thai and Massaman Curry—dishes I still enjoy making almost three years later! You also have the option to gift a three, six or 12-month subscription with the company’s new Class Pass.
