In theory, shopping for couples should be a simple pursuit. In actuality, there’s double the amount of pressure to get it right. Plus, the fact that there’s at least one pairing in every family of people who have extremely particular (read: bizarre) taste.
To make things easier for you this year, I’ve gone ahead and rounded up a list of the best couples gift ideas out there for every personality pairing—even gifts for the couples that have everything. Whether you’re shopping for the duo that’s the most fun to go out to dinner with, a pairing of fitness lovebirds who are seemingly always on a nature adventure, or a loved one and their new S/O who seem to completely do their own thing, ahead you’ll find gifts that work for every party on your list. And at every price point.
From quirky, funny finds to everyday practical objects you maybe never thought to give as a gift, here are 50 gifts for couples to buy now.
