Christmas is all about being with the ones you love, enjoying company, good food, and fun. One of the best parts of the holiday can be watching the reaction of your husband or wife as they open up the gift you got them, but it can be tough to think of the right present to really put a smile on their face. While you know your partner best, here we will give you a few ideas to get you started and inspire you to find the perfect present this year.
The Best Christmas Present Ideas for Your Husband
When it comes to buying the right gift for your husband the key is to think about the things that he loves. Is he an outdoorsman or does he prefer to spend time inside? Is he sporty, does he love to read, or play games? Or a mixture of all or some of the above? Here are a few suggestions for themes that might suit your husband and lead to the right gift for him.
Nothing inspires memories of childlike delight like Christmas, and it can be the perfect time to recapture those feelings with some great retro gifts to remind him of his younger years. This can cover anything from the toys and games he enjoyed then and maybe hasn’t thought of in a while, to cool Star Wars merchandise for adults who still feel that joy all the time and love the films and franchises of past years.
If your husband has a particular favourite sport you can quickly find many gifts to go along with that including equipment, clothing, and days out. Tickets to watch the tennis or some new golf clubs can make lovely gifts, and you can even try something new for the coming New Year, like a skiing holiday or a climbing day. How far you go is up to you, and you can always make it tickets for two and enjoy a new experience together as an added gift.
Home and garden gifts
While this can be a bit of a cliché, getting your husband tools, a BBQ, or something else to use around the house can still be an ideal present if that is the sort of thing he would like! There are so many gadgets and cool extras available to make this gift more fun and special, so check out the options available like an inflatable outdoor movie screen or an Auto-mower to save on having to do it himself. You can also make it a package gift, with a new portable or fancy BBQ and a meat subscription to give him something to grill!
Often, it can be tricky to just label people as one thing, and even if you know your husband loves to read or play games you may not want to simply get more books or games for them every year. Going for something a little more random can be an excellent way to surprise your spouse and give them a new theme and present to enjoy.
You can go for quirky official Rick and Morty merchandise, clothes and bags with personalised names and photos or your favourite franchise on them, or a light fixture in the style of the games console you use. Have a look at all of the options available and you are sure to find something that looks right.
The Best Christmas Present Ideas for Your Wife
Similarly when it comes to buying the perfect present for your wife this Christmas the key is to get inside her head and consider her favourite things, what she might like, want, and need. In most cases it is better to buy something for her rather than for the house or garden, focusing on gifts she perhaps wouldn’t buy for herself. However, it really is down to the individual, so here are a few hints and tips to get you going and let you decide for yourself.
While it can be wonderful to receive items for Christmas, it can be even better to get a thoughtful and exciting or relaxing experience to look forward to and remember instead. There is no shortage of options, from a spa trip to tickets to your favourite band, a play, or a sporting event, to a holiday away. You can even build a theme of gifts around the experience you plan to have, like a band T-shirt to go with the tickets or a suitcase with the holiday.
We know that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and this could mean different things to different wives. Perhaps some jewellery in their favourite metal, stone or style, or a print or piece of art they have had their eye on? The beautiful item could be a handmade gift or a designer Harry Potter leather handbag, the perfect gift for someone looking for a little magic this Christmas!
Along with the spa day suggestion, there are many forms that relaxation can take. A bath can be much improved with a bath caddy for reading and holding a cup of tea – or glass of wine! Candles and scented objects, even a new perfume can be a relaxing and enjoyable gift this Christmas, it’s up to you to find the right present to make your wife as relaxed and happy as possible.
Whatever gift you get for your husband or wife this Christmas, make sure it is something they will enjoy by thinking about what it is that they love and enjoy. Sometimes a Harry Potter-themed gift will make someone happier than an expensive piece of jewellery, and sometimes a day out can be exciting, as can a relaxing night in. Take the time to consider what your partner might need and want, and you are sure to find that perfect special gift. Merry Christmas!
