If you need a gift idea for a could in your life, why not buy them some luxury chocolates? Everybody loves chocolates, and they are appreciated over the festive season; not only that, chocolates are affordable and can be turned into a more personal gift with notes and cards.
A coffee maker makes a perfect gift for a couple, and it will be appreciated even if the household already has one in the kitchen. When a household receives a second coffee maker, chances are it will find a home in a guest bedroom, a garden room, or a games room in the basement or loft.

What couple won’t be able to use a picture frame to put their couple picture in or a stock pot to cook wholesome food for the family? Instead of buying separate items for individual family members, you can now buy a single home item that your couple-friends can use and enjoy.
If all else fails, choose a gift voucher for your couple-friends. Gift vouchers might seem like an easy way of avoiding gift-buying, but it allows your friends to buy something they need, meaning they get the best value for money, and you all support sustainability efforts by reducing waste.
