When you start thinking about a gift for your romantic partner, the pressure is well and truly on. You want it to be personal and thoughtful and something that shows them how much they mean to you. If you’ve been struggling with ideas this year, then don’t worry, we’ve got some lovely gift ideas for you.
Jewellery is timeless, and you can make it an original present too. You could get a locket from Chapelle, and get your initials engraved. When you’re buying jewellery be sure to look at your partner’s current pieces to see what sort of things they like. You want to get them something they’d actually wear, and not make the mistake of getting a piece your partner already owns.
Photo presents are always a good way to tug on the heartstrings. You can keep it simple and get a favourite photo framed. Or if you’re feeling creative you could create your own couple’s scrapbook to celebrate your relationship. If you’d rather leave the creativity to someone else, check out some online artists and see if you can commission a digital portrait of the two of you.
2020 may not have been the one for going out and about, but that just means there’s time to make up for. Plus, there’s plenty of experiences you and your partner can do together that don’t involve a crowd. Whether it’s booking a getaway in the English countryside or a virtual wine tasting – you can still make special memories with one another.
If you’d rather not spend a lot of money all at once for your present, why not consider a subscription service? That way your partner gets gifts throughout the year. You’d be amazed at the number of subscription boxes out there.
Sometimes the best gift you can give is your own time. You could get your partner a bag of coffee beans and promise mornings in bed together every weekend with brewed coffee. Or wine glasses, with the guarantee of a date night meal with wine every month. Or simply give them one hour set aside for doing something that makes them happy, rather than worry about what they have to do.
When it comes to picking a gift for your partner, ask yourself what they’d appreciate the most. A physical present, quality time, or a mix of the two. What kind of presents does your partner like?
