5 Holiday Gifts For Your Spouse
Shopping for your spouse during the holidays can be a challenge. The dilemma is often picking a meaningful gift for your partner within a reasonable budget. Well, look no further! Below we’ve created a list of five thoughtful gifts that won’t break the bank.
1. A book to improve your marriage. It’s best to get two copies; one for you and one for your spouse. The two of you will be able to read through the book together and discuss how you can better your relationship from what you’ve read. Two of our recommendations are The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman and The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work by John Gottman.
2. A date night out. The key to making this gift successful is to do all the planning in advance. Think about your spouse’s favorite restaurants, hobbies, and activities. Plan an evening (or a whole day!) involving these things. If you have kids, make sure to line up a babysitter ahead of time as well.
3. Date Night In Box monthly subscription. Sometimes a night out can seem impossible, but it doesn’t mean you have to forgo a date altogether. Date Night In Box will allow you to spend time with your spouse at home, so don’t worry about calling someone to watch the kids. Every month, your date night box will arrive at your door packed with recipes and activities to try together. This gift will keep the spark alive in your relationship all year!
4. A photo album. Don’t think you have to go homemade for this one! If you’re crafty, feel free to assemble photos, stickers, and cut-outs in a scrapbook. However, if you don’t have the time or creative touch, there are other options. You can create a beautiful photo album online with the help of Walmart or Snapfish. Upload the best pictures of you and your spouse, select a template, add some captions, and you’ll have a gift your partner will love.
5. A letter or video explaining why you love them. The best thing about this idea? No cost! You’ll just need to take some time brainstorming the reasons you love your spouse. After that, write your thoughts down on paper. You can also videotape yourself expressing the same thoughts if you’re tech-savvy. Put time and energy into this gift, and you might even make your spouse cry!
Hopefully, this list gave you a few cost-effective and creative ideas for this holiday season. Now get to buying, planning, or creating!
