Finding thoughtful Christmas gifts for couples isn’t always the easiest task, but if you start with the idea that whatever you choose would be something they can experience together, you won’t go far wrong. Whether they’re a foodie couple who enjoy the finer things (think recipe kits, restaurant vouchers or fancy glassware) or an adventurous couple who would appreciate an outdoorsy experience or some travel inspiration, finding exciting Christmas gifts for couples can actually be quite a fun task. What’s great about these gifts is that many of the options are virtual, so you order them last minute if the hectic party season is getting the better of you.

We’ve also got some ideas if you’re looking for some inspiration on a gift to give the special man or woman in your life. After all, gifting that special someone in your life isn’t always the easiest – but our guide should spark a few ideas. Lauren Kate Hughes rounds up the ultimate couples’ Christmas gift ideas – we’re sure each one will be gratefully received.
