In my opinion, whoever invented ‘couple presents’ really didn’t think the concept through enough before pitching it. Sure, it helps cut down the amount of gifts you need to buy by one – but instead, you’re faced with the difficult and time-consuming task of picking one present for two people, who most likely don’t have the same interests, or even relationship to you. Great!
Personally, I find that this leaves me with two options: awkwardly present a gift that’s quite obviously geared more towards one of them (there’s only so many times in one festive season I can watch one of my friend’s boyfriends feign delight when he unwraps a piece of girly homeware that he has zero interest in), or just settle for a bog-standard box of chocolates that’ll hopefully sort of please both.
So – partly to help my future self – I’ve pulled together a selection of all-round great Christmas gifts for couples that I reckon both parties would be pretty chuffed with.
