10 Great Christmas Gift Ideas for Couples

There are two things I love most in this world, besides my children and husband, of course:

Checking things off of my list and buying presents for other people.

And yes, I am aware of the incredible similarities that those two premises have with Santa and no, I am not immune to his fondness for milk and cookies, so we share a rather rounded middle too, ok?

But nonetheless, I love this time of year. And even better is when I can get a two-for-one by checking two people off of my Christmas gifts list with the perfect present built for two!

  • A classic boardgame. 3 of 11

    Ok, sure this might be a little cheesy, but it's still a fun idea. A classic board game can help any couple connect — or at least garner you a double-date invite.

  • A perfect picnic basket. 5 of 11

    I have always, always wanted a picture-perfect, classic wicker picnic basket. I am kind of in love with them. So yes, this present may be wishful thinking, but how cute would this make packed with a few bottles of wine and fancy cheeses as a present for a couple?

  • Free babysitting. 6 of 11

    If the couple in question has kids, I can guarantee that this gift will never go out of style for them. Seriously, my husband and I am the cheapest people ever to shop for because we will take 10 free babysitting coupons for Christmas — you had just better be ready for cashing-in time!

  • Tickets to a comedy show. 7 of 11

    One of the best gifts I ever got for my parents were tickets to a comedy show. It was something new and different for them and something they probably never would have purchased for themselves. They loved it, had a blast and still talk about it to this day. Nicely done, Chaunie.

  • A bicycle built for two. 8 of 11

    I'm kidding of course. Who's got that kind of cash, anyways? But still, it would be a pretty cool gift. Look how happy these two are!

  • A good quality pizza stone. 9 of 11

    Gift a couple with a nice pizza stone and you will change their lives forever. I am never more in love with my husband than when he pulls his steaming, hot, beautiful pizza out of the oven on our pizza stone. Swoon.

    What? Too much? Ok, maybe you're right there.

  • A painting class. 11 of 11

    One of my favorite bloggers recently posted an adorable picture of her date night out with her hubs — they did a wine `n painting night, where they took a painting lesson together while sipping wine and creating beautiful masterpieces together. #adorbs #jealous #datenight
