Gifts for the Couple
Finding the perfect present for one person is hard enough – but two people, well that’s another story. Never fear, though: Our roundup considers all the different duos in your life – from the boozers to the Bikram Yoga devotees. These gifts for the couple will have everybody asking, “That’s so them, how did you think of it?” Feel free to take all the credit.
1. For the Foodies
Move over, Morton. There are all sorts of decadent new salts on the market now. This Foundation Salt Set is a great start and a must-have for any foodie couple worth their salt. (Oh yes, we did.) Bitterman Foundation Salt Set
2. For Your Favorite Couple
Yeah, we might be biased, but we think that our Striped Cashmere Throw is the gold standard of holiday gifting. So give it to your very favorite couple. Plus, if you go to their house a lot, you’ll get to use it, too! Win-win. Parachute Striped Cashmere Throw
3. For the Couple You Don’t Know That Well…Yet!
Is it just us, or does coffee taste better when drinking it out of a cup with your initials on it? These monogrammed mugs are perfect for a couple that you like, but don’t know too well yet. Like a candle, but not. Anthropologie Monogram Mugs
4. For Your Parents
If your parents have had their bathrobes so long that the terrycloth is actually sharp, it might be/is definitely time for an upgrade. Our Classic Bathrobe is made with 100% long-staple Turkish cotton, loomed to 450 GSM using innovative Aerocotton Technology. And most importantly, it feels amazing. Parachute Classic Bathrobe
5. For the Globetrotters
Just having this map on the wall brings a sense of wanderlust. Your friends can scratch off the countries they’ve visited and dream about the ones they haven’t yet. (Bonus: If someone they don’t like ever comes over, they can take it down quickly and say, “You didn’t see that! We are not plotting world domination!”) UncommonGoods Scratch Map
6. For the Couple That Loves to Entertain
As adults, we so rarely get gifts in ridiculously enormous boxes, and honestly, is there anything more fun? With poufs – which every fun house must have – opening the gift is almost as fun as actually using it! Fun fact: You’ll find this pouf in The Parachute Hotel. l’aviva home Grano De Arroz Pouf
7. For the Movie Buffs
This gift-giving tip is so good that we almost don’t want to reveal it. So don’t tell anyone, okay? Okay. On Ebay, you can find the most amazing and affordable vintage posters from old Exploitation movies, like an original, “Attack of the 50 Ft. Woman” poster. (NOTE: Recipient must have a sense of humor to dig this gift.)
8. For the Coffee Purists
There are some fun things happening in the coffee world right now – Cubanos, cold brews, nitros – but for the coffee purists, a simple espresso still reigns supreme. And when it comes to espresso machines, nothing can touch Pasquini. Pasquini Livia G4 Auto PID
9.For the Whisky Aficionados
Japanese whiskies are all the rage right now. The trend began in earnest when Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible gave its highest honor to the Yamazaki Single Malt Sherry Cask in 2013. You can track that bottle down online for about $4,000, but any Yamazaki Whisky is sure to delight your connoisseur friends. Yamazaki Whisky
10. For the Fitness Fiends
You know the couple. You wake up groggy and scan through Instagram to find that they have already – shudder – hiked. For this pair, the ultimate gift is a yoga retreat. Steve Ross of Maha Yoga does amazing “Happy Yoga” retreats and he’s a taking a lucky crew to Tulum, Mexico for a week in May. Yoga 213 x Steve Ross Mexico Retreat
