Perfect for couples that love art and humor, a personalized caricature would make a lovely addition to any art wall. You can pick your favorite artist online or visit a caricature studio in person to pick an artist of your choice. Then, give them a photo of the couple and let them work their magic. In fact, you can also choose scenes and stylized drawings. What would the couple look like if they were in The Simpsons? The Flintstones? Pokémon characters? Whatever be your fancy, these artists will whip them right to life!

3. Scrapbooking Kit

Gift your favorite couple the joy of memories with a couples scrapbooking kit from Etsy. They’ll be able to create and cherish a lovely relationship memoir. This is a wonderful present for a new couple, as they can begin filling it up right away with photographs and memories, but it’s perfectly suitable at any stage in a relationship. If you’d like to make it part of a gift set, it pairs well with some stemless wine glasses and a bottle of their favorite vintage. They can share it by the fireplace as they reminisce and enjoy each other’s company.

4. Engraved Photo Frame

A stunning photo frame is always a classy choice, whether you’re gifting for a wedding anniversary, housewarming, or any other couples occasion. Or consider this ‘Story of Us’ photo wall art collage set. Made of wood, twine, and wooden photo holders, each set can hold 25-35 photos, so they’ll never run out of space. They’ll be able to pick some milestone photos from their relationship to make a gorgeous collage. It’s sure to be the showstopper wherever it is placed!

5. Laser-Engraved Photo

If a picture frame or collage just doesn’t cut it, how about a custom laser-engraved 3D photo? This stunning art installation will get everyone’s attention, wherever it is placed in the home. It also makes a wonderful wedding gift. Painstakingly and precisely engraved with a photo of your choice, this option is a fantastic way to turn a photo into a work of art.

6. Cocktail Kit

A cocktail-making kit would make a terrific housewarming gift for newlyweds or any couple who loves to entertain at home. This 11-piece bar tool set comes with a rustic wooden stand that will steal the show on any bar cart near a classic decanter and tumblers. The cocktail shaker and mixing kit have a polished copper finish and a stainless steel base. While you’re at it, why not gift them specially selected cocktail ingredients or an introductory mixology session so they can get the party started?

7. Painting Kit

For artistic couples that love some creativity and calm, a painting kit is the way to go. This kit is the best bet for couples that want to enjoy some peaceful quality time. Since it’s is portable, they can take it with them wherever they go, be it on a picnic or a day out at the beach. There, they’ll be able to paint and have a heart-to-heart as they give colors to their imagination. There’s something magical about painting in the outdoors. Every couple is sure to love this romantic date-inspiring couples gift; just set up the easel on a rock, paint the blue sky, and watch some sparks fly!

8. At-Home Projector

If the couple has a spacious backyard (or a free wall that can be turned into a movie screen), gift them a projector so they can turn their home into a drive-in theater. They’ll be able to enjoy their favorite flicks as they cuddle and cozy up in their backyard, munching on popcorn and wine. This is a great way to switch up date night and makes a thoughtful, practical gift for couples that value time together.

9. Nostalgic Popcorn Cart

If this couple likes to Netflix and chill often, it’s only fair they get some fresh popcorn whenever they want. A nostalgic popcorn cart is a perfect decorative and functional enhancement for a movie room, game room, or just about any room in the house. If your loved ones love binging movies and TV shows all weekend, you don’t have to think twice. This popcorn make will take their movie night to the next level. It is a great conversation starter too. The retro design of this cart adds to the décor (did we mention it’s got cute measuring scoops?) They’ll never want to go to the movies again!

10. Hand Casting Kit

Are you gifting a couple that you know will last forever? This plaster hand casting kit is not only a fun DIY crafting idea but an absolutely lovely gift. The procedure is simple. The couple must mix the casting powder in the provided tub, hold hands, and lower them into the mix for approximately 2 minutes to create the cast. Once they carefully wiggle their hands out, it’s time to pour in the plaster mixture. The statue will harden in 2-3 hours, leaving behind a permanent reminder of love, commitment, and loyalty. We’ve got starry eyes just thinking about it!  

11. Star Map

Speaking of starry eyes, why not get a couple some actual stars? Well, not actual stars, but the closest possible thing. With a personalized star map, the couple will be able to see exactly how the stars were aligned when they met for the first time, went on their first date, said “I love you,” got engaged, or tied the knot– take your pick of a significant day. If you’d prefer to let the happy couple choose, The Night Sky offers gift cards! They’ll love hanging this stunning piece, in the bedroom or living room, as a reminder of their love.

12. The Date Night Cookbook

If a couple loves binging The Try Guys on YouTube, you’ll love this recipe book. Authored by happy couple Ned and Ariel Fulmer, this Date Night Cookbook contains not just easy recipes, but also some charming anecdotes and stories about their much-adored romance. This book promises to open up not just your kitchen, but also your heart. From pizza and pasta to chili and soufflé, this book has just about anything a couple will need to turn a night in into something truly magical.

13. Matching Tees

Matching t-shirts are a favorite gift because they’re super cute. This ‘I stole her heart-I stole his last name’ gift set is charming! A ‘King-Queen’ set is also a staple and makes a great gift for a bride and groom to be. Couples that have a hilarious sense of humor will enjoy the ‘Boss-Real Boss’ set! If you want to add your own design to a t-shirt, have personalized t-shirts made.

14. Chunky Knit Quilt

In case you’re looking for gifts for couples that add a chic home decor element, a chunky quilt is an ideal option. It comes in muted colors that will add a pop of elegant hue to a neutral bedroom. It is soft, fluffy, and warm so they’re sure to love curling up under it. The handmade quote is crafted with care, making it a wonderful investment. It is large enough to accommodate two people, making sure there won’t be any quilt tugging in the middle of the night.

15. Personalized Robes

Bathrobes are seriously underrated. A plush robe will change showers from something quick to something luxurious. This is why a matching set of couples’ robes is a great idea. There are so many options, from monograms to adorable monikers! Regardless of the personalization, any couple would be glad to add these comfy, cozy additions to their lounging wardrobe.

16. Couples Phone Cases

Coordinated phone cases make smart gifts for couples because they’re both useful and sweet. Our top picks include this gamer couple set with a gaming console. Compatible across a range of phones, this one is our favorite for couples that love to play together. For couples that lean on the romantic side, this pinky-holding phone case will make hearts melt. This kawaii avocado phone case is ideal for couples who have a quirky sense of humor.

17. Couples’ Mugs

A couple that enjoys their cuppa should enjoy their cups too. These his ‘n hers coffee mugs are great for a collection or daily use. For example, this magnetic attraction set is quirky and cute. Cat parents will enjoy this kissing cat mug set or you can choose this kissing mugs set for romantics—it comes with matching spoons! Any of these options would make a thoughtful gift for a couple.

18. Matching Aprons

A pair of hilarious aprons will add some color and spice to the kitchen. For instance, this ‘Mr. and Mrs.’ kit would make a great shower gift. Or, once it’s official, this ‘Husband and Wife’ set will set the tone for a collaborative kitchen. If you’re looking for something with a little more panache, we love this ‘Queen-King of the Kitchen’ set. Couples that cook together, stay together!

19. His and Hers Watches

What’s better than one watch? Two of them! This high-quality analog watch gift box has one for him, and one for her. Here’s what we love about this watch set. Each watch has one-half of a heart set in crystals. When the two watches are brought together, they form a perfect heart and spell the word ‘Love.’ The dials are stark black with a crystal inlay, making it perfect for a black-tie night. The steel straps add to the elegance. We can’t think of anything dreamier than this!

20. Candle and Bath Bomb Set

If you’d like to gift a couple a magical spa night as an engagement gift, you don’t need to find gift cards for an expensive getaway. This artisanal spa collection gift basket will do. It comes with an apothecary candle, a shea butter soap, and a bath bomb. In addition, a mineral salt bath soak is also included in the kit. This means the couple will be able to have a relaxing night in, soaking in the luxurious scent of bergamot cedar as they get some quality time together. Send them a choice bottle of wine along with the set, and they’ll be thanking you while they relax!

21. Personalized Decorative Pillow Cover

We’ve got two options for couples who love it all. The first type is a minimalistic, lowkey pillowcase that comes printed with the couple’s last name and year of marriage. This cushion cover is made of natural cotton and has a lightly hued color that goes with both warm and cool tones.

For couples that love some sparkle and joy, this customized flip pillowcase comes with a reversible sequin overlay. One side of the pillowcase is a solid block of bright color. Once you run your palm over it, it transforms into a photo of choice. This is a spectacular gift for a couple that loves a pop of color!

22. Coffee Maker

For a couple that loves coffee as much as they love each other, a coffee maker is a perfect gift. This 10-cup drip coffee maker, available from Amazon, is a fully automatic machine that comes with a built-in bean grinder. With a programmable timer mode and a warming plate, this will ensure a fresh brew every time. The glass coffee pot and the scoop will add to the effect, making you feel like they’re in a café. While you’re at it, you can also order a selection of artisanal coffee beans from around the world.

23. Pushpin World Map

A personalized gift is always something special. This anniversary pushpin world map from Uncommon Goods is an example. Imagine gifting this to traveling friends so they can see all of the places they’ve checked off their bucket list! It can be personalized to note any special day, be it an anniversary any milestone. It comes with pushpins that can be placed anywhere. With a total of 100 pushpins, the couple can denote favorite locations for birthday celebrations, honeymoons, vacation destinations, and much more.

Christmas,Photo,Of,Surprised,Family

Finding a Christmas gift for a family can be tricky. Since everyone has different interests, it may take some time and effort to figure out something that everyone will enjoy. But don’t worry—we’ve put in some work and have come up with a list of 20 Christmas gifts for the whole family. We’ve got both gift ideas and experiences to choose from. We hope you find the best gifts to help you make your way through your shopping list this holiday season.


1.  Adventure Book

Give the gift of adventure with Adventures From Scratch: Family Edition. This interactive book has 50+ adventures to choose from—an entire year’s worth of epic activities! With sections like “Cook,” “Get Silly,” “Discover,” and “Create,” it suits many ages, preferences, and personalities. A helpful key on each page will clue you in on the duration, expense, and necessary supplies. It’s the perfect gift for explorers and any family who wants to add a little excitement to each day!

2.  Family Portrait

A personalized portrait is a charming way to show your favorite family how much they mean to you. These days, it’s fairly easy to commission an artist online to paint a custom portrait from a picture. If you want to get creative, opt to customize and personalize the portrait to make it resemble cartoon or movie characters. To make things even funnier, you can print the portrait on merchandise like t-shirts, mugs, or Christmas ornaments. There are so many options!

3.  Family Picture Frame

Speaking of family photos, what good are photos if you can’t find a place to hang them? Family photo frames come in all shapes and sizes, so you’re certain to find the perfect one to gift. If you’re looking for something to place on the mantle, this rustic collage frame is a great bet. In case you want to hang something on the wall, how about a stunning puzzle-style frame with intricate detailing? Or if centerpieces are your thing, you’ll love this family tree photo frame, where each photo is flanked by metallic leaves dangling in the wind. Before you click some family photos, try some indoor crafts together to get some serious bonding done!

4.  Scrapbook Making Kit

Help a family create new memories with this 8.5-11″ DIY Scrapbook Photo Album. They’ll be able to document special occasions and celebrations throughout the year. Place photos, postcards, handwritten notes, within the pages of each binder, so you can shuffle and add pages at will. With 30 pages of paper, tape, and stickers in-store, this kit is a fantastic start to a keepsake they’ll have for years to come.

5.  Air Hockey Game

Bring the pub games home with this tabletop air hockey game is a great way to add some joy and excitement to family game night. This kit comes with pucks, paddles, an electric blower to keep the games going. An LED score screen helps you keep track of points. Since this is a tabletop kit, it does not need any assembling instructions. Made of wood and painted with colorful hues, this will add a dash of fun to your dining area.

6.  Pizza Making Set

Turn mealtime into something epic with this pizza set. While making pizza at home is easy, getting it to restaurant-level quality is tricky. This is where a pizza-making stone can help. A ceramic pizza stone retains heat, making your crust crispy and flavorsome. The pizza peel will have you feeling like an Italian chef as it will help you place the dough seamlessly on the stone. The stainless steel blade will ensure a perfect cut and is much better than a pizza wheel. The stone is versatile because you can use it for cookies and pies too. The entire family will enjoy this delicious kit!

7.  Candle-Making Kit

This candle-making kit is a must-have for families who take relaxing seriously. With this kit, the entire family will be able to make candles for themselves (they can gift them to each other too).

Kids can contribute by choosing the color and fragrance. The kit is beginner-friendly; all you need to do is heat the wax in the microwave and pour it away.

8.  Karaoke Kit

Family night is incomplete without karaoke. This is why we love this karaoke mic. With special settings for effects and tunes, this microphone will take your karaoke night to the next level. To set up a fun karaoke night, make a playlist of your family’s favorite songs and load them on a screen (a laptop, TV, or projector). Connect the mic to your phone through Bluetooth and let the jamming session begin. Available in a range of stunning colors, this hands-free mic will leave your entire family feeling like pop stars.

9.  Mini Herb Garden Starter Kit

Give your family the green thumb by gifting them this mini herb garden kit. We recommend this kit for families with young children. Simple to use, this kit will help them get started on their gardening journey. The best part is that this kit is ideal for indoor herb gardens. This means you can gift it to families that live in apartments without a backyard. All they need is some patience and care to see their herb garden flourish. Since the kit has soil pellets and seeds, they don’t need to put in much effort.

10.  Scavenger Hunt Pass

When it comes to family time, the memories are what count. If you want to gift your family some great memories, why not send them on a scavenger hunt?

There’s a matching onesie for your dog too. Family photos incoming!

18.  Paint By Numbers Set

Few things are as calming and soothing as art. This paint-by-numbers kit takes the cake! We love the concept of a paint-by-numbers kit. You don’t need to have any experience to blend colors or pick the right tones. That’s all done for you. In addition, you’ll also be able to experience the joy of a blank canvas coming to life.

We recommend giving one kit per family member so that everyone can paint together.

19.  Outdoor Activity Items

If there’s an active family on your list, or friends who want to get more active, consider outdoor play items as Christmas gift ideas. An inflatable pool might be a wonderful gift for warm-weather dwellers or go a bit more conservative with bubble wands for the yard. A basketball hoop can transform a driveway into a court. Equipment is always a hit with sports-loving families. Horseshoes, corn hole, ladder toss—they all make great gifts!
