How to pick the best Christmas gift for couples

Since you're buying a present to suit two people, you need to make sure it's something both of them will use or have an interest in. If you're buying for a couple that live together,think about things like homewares or cookbooks. Alcohol or fine-food hampers are also great ideas for couples, especially if they love cooking. If they love entertaining think about something like a boardgame or Cards Against Humanity.

If you're buying for a couple that don't live together the process can be a little harder. Think about things that won't have to live at one person's house to avoid awkwardness. Experience gifts are a good example of this - a restaurant experience or concert tickets are perfect gifts for couples. Otherwise you can try his&her/his&his/her&her gifts. Etsy has an extensive range of his&her mugs, spoons, pillow cases, phone covers etc. His&her gifts are a good option because the gift has two pieces and can be kept together or apart if the couple doesn't live together.
