Give couples an edible gift for the holidays. You may send a couple a gift basket containing gourmet desserts, chocolates or wine to use during a relaxing evening at home. Ship a romantic dinner to the couple from a company such as Schwan’s or Omaha Steaks. Hire a chef to come to the couple’s home for an evening and cook a gourmet meal that they will be able to enjoy by candlelight or offer to take the couple out to dinner after the holidays.
Encourage couples to spend some time with each other by providing them with gift certificates for a date night. If the couple has children, offer to babysit so the couple can have an evening out together. Give them a gift certificate to a popular restaurant or movie theater. Book tickets to a concert or sporting event that both of them will enjoy.
For a more expensive couple’s gift, look for local bed and breakfasts, lodges and other couples getaway packages. Provide the couple with reservations for a weekend away so that they will be able to spend more time with one another. Prepare all of the arrangements, from booking a room to making romantic dinner reservations. Make sure the location is not more than a few hours away by car so that a couple will be able to maximize the amount of time they spend together. Even a night alone in a local hotel will be a welcome getaway for many couples.
Use Christmas as an excuse to purchase a large item for the home that both of them will use. Provide the couple with a new computer or television. If they are newlyweds, help furnish their new home by purchasing a significant piece of furniture, such as a sofa or a dining room table. Smaller items such as a video camera, digital camera or GPS will also provide a gift that the couple will be able to use together. Other home furnishings such as dishes, plaques with the family name and decorations will also make for an awesome couple's gift.
His and hers items allow a couple to celebrate their connection to one another. Purchase matching pajama sets for the couple or a set of bathrobes embroidered with the couple’s initials. Give the couple a matching sweatshirt, apron or jewelry set labeled “Mr.” and “Mrs.” or give t-shirts with the couple’s picture displayed on the front. Think about how you can combine the couple’s interests. For example, if a man has a favorite sports teams, get the couple matching jerseys.
