Christmas is on the horizon, and now is a great time to start thinking about how you can spoil your other half. The festive season is an opportunity to spend some quality time with your partner and reconnect after a busy period. You could treat them to a luxurious gift or book a holiday away together. Make the most out of the festive season and celebrate your relationship so far.

Here are a few gift ideas for your other half.

Gifts for her

You could buy your loved one a bottle of perfume that she has been talking about. Go into the store and try a few different scents to find the one that reminds you of her. Consult her best friend to make sure the scent is something she would wear. You want to get it right!

Jewellery is the perfect romantic gift. You could design a piece of bespoke jewellery for your partner with both of your initials carved into it. Or, if your budget is a little smaller, look at the pre-Christmas sales for inspiration. You can get discounts on jewellery and watches just before Christmas.

Surprise her with a trip away to a destination she’s always wanted to visit. You could go on a city break, ski holiday or beach vacation in the summer.

Gifts for him

A watch is always a good gift – especially if there’s one he has been admiring all year. Buy the watch in the Black Friday sales to save a little money. Or, you could go for a tech gadget that he will use day in and day out. A high-quality pair of wireless headphones would come in useful or a new gaming accessory. Think about his interests and hobbies to find a gift that’s just right.

If he’s a coffee lover, invest in an espresso machine to make his morning caffeine shot every day. You could get a smart coffee machine that makes coffee as soon as he wakes up. An alarm clock coffee machine is the best gift for someone who hates mornings.

Find an experience day for the both of you to do together. You could go paintballing or sightseeing in your local city. Find something that you can enjoy together and bond over your mutual interest. A sunrise hot air balloon ride or helicopter experience would certainly be a gift to remember.

You don’t need to buy the flashiest or most expensive gift for your partner. Sometimes a homemade gift is more meaningful and romantic. You could make a scrapbook of your relationship so far with all of your favourite photos.

Autumn is almost over, and it’s time to get Christmas shopping for your loved one.
