Any gift that involves taking something personalized and crafting it into a gift specific for your partner. It can be an idea from conversations you’ve had, a memento from a trip, a family keepsake, or simply something only you know your partner needs.
When it comes to love, sometimes it's the little things that mean the most. Whether you're looking for anniversary gifts for him, or Valentine's Day gifts for him, or just because, we will guide you as to how to think through and decide on the perfect gift.
Listening is a lost art. Hopefully, you’ve at least had one ear open and have recognized your partner’s recent complaints. Maybe they haven’t had some alone down time due to work & kids. It could be they haven’t had the chance to take care of their hair, nails, or other self care tasks. They may have even expressed feeling lonely as they haven’t connected with close friends in some time. Try to create a gift that takes recent considerations into account.
One of the most precious things you can give your loved one is time. Plan a special date night or weekend getaway and spend quality time together without any distractions. If they are a loaner, think about how you may even give them the weekend to themselves. Take a trip to see your family, and let them relax at the house kid and/or worry free.
Show your partner how well you know them by reaching out to a few of their friends. Plan a surprise small day trip or weekend trip on their behalf. A winery, sporting event, or even brunch and bar hopping are all great options.
A great way to show how much you care is by giving the self-care gift. If it’s Mom or Dad who works endlessly and needs some time to destress, consider a spa day. Do they complain about their wardrobe? Book a shopping specialist to help them organize their closet and get some fresh new gear. Do they complain about getting back into shape? Get them a personal training package combined with some high quality supplements so they can start their health journey.
Humor in many relationships plays a large part of the strong bond. Think about the inside jokes you share, and how much your partner would enjoy some laughs on your anniversary , valentine’s day, or just because. Of course, you can pair this love gift with the classics (i.e. flowers, cards, chocolate, etc) but it’s the humor gift that makes them remember nobody knows them better than you.
There are so many hysterical mugs already created or you can design them yourself with an inside joke image or message.
Plan a surprise funny photo session where you dress up in retro-80’s couple gear. There are endless options of how you can tie in your personal shared humor into photo sessions.
You can find great comedians touring within 30 minutes of almost anywhere in the country. Find someone you know your partner will enjoy and spend the night with your jaws hurting from smiling and laughing so much.
You can get entire puzzles designed based on a photo. Send in their most embarrassing photo (or an embarrassing family photo) and get a funny puzzle creation.

This can be something you create or have created on your behalf like a piece of jewelry, art, or photo using a memento from a trip/experience you both had. It can also be more simple; cooking his or her favorite dinner while having their favorite artist playing in the background. Let’s go over some options:
Plan a weekend away at a cozy bed and breakfast or a secluded cabin in the woods. They like the big city? Book a hotel room in the center of town and shop until you drop. If you aren’t quite sure where they would find the most intriguing, reach out to their best friend for some options.This would be great for an anniversary. Check out some other Anniversary gift options.
From a picture in a locket to using a memento (i.e. plane tickets from your first trip together) inside of a frame, you can use any item that has special meaning to you both and get creative with it. Maybe even finally getting all the honeymoon pictures put into a photo book may be the ultimate love gift!
Nothing says "I love you" like a homemade meal made with care and served with a loving smile. You know their favorite dish and dessert and with some research should be able to whip it up! If you really can’t cook, having it ordered from their favorite restaurant with some candle light surprise is just as nice of a gesture.
Sometimes the simplest gift is the most cherished of all. Especially if you're not the one who normally expresses feelings. Write down all the things you love about your partner and put it in a fancy envelope for them to keep forever.
A love gift doesn’t need to be expensive or even movie-esque romantic, it just needs to show you understand your partner. Think about their needs; time, self-care, a comedic pick me up, or finally hearing you be expressive. Provide the love gift you know your partner needs for this occasion and continue to make your bond even stronger. We selected some options below to get your mind going or to simply add into whatever else you're already planning on getting.
