6. Best Experience Gift for Couples: Escape Room: The Game

Escape rooms are a popular experience gift, and best of all they can be enjoyed from the comfort of home.

So if you’re thinking about giving an “experience” instead of the more traditional gift options, you can’t go wrong with a board game like this one.

7. Best Cooking Gift for Couples: Personalized Recipe Box

Couples who like to cook can be hard to find gifts for, because they often already have everything they need and love for all their favorite dishes.

That said, not everyone who loves to cook has a place to store all their favorite paper recipes. And you’ve got to admit, there’s something pretty nostalgic about a good old-fashioned recipe box – especially when it comes personalized like this one.

Choose between a bamboo box or a walnut wood box. Dividers are available.

Think: a romantic date night in the dining room, a movie in the living room, a family camp out indoors during the long winter months, a cozy night in bed “under the stars.”

It’s a great gift idea. Includes adjustable light settings, rotation options, and 120V AC adapter.

16. Best Gift for Couples Who Have Everything: Couples Horseback Riding Adventure

Experience Gifts for Couples

It can be difficult to find a fabulous gift for the couple who already seemingly has everything. In this case, a “getaway” gift, like a horseback riding adventure, may be your best bet.

Similar ideas include horse-drawn carriage rides, scuba diving adventures, beach getaways and gifts for glamping.

For this category we’ve picked horseback riding as our #1 gift simply because it’s not something that everyone has the means to do. And honestly, what could be more romantic than riding away together into the sunset?

Take this stellar push-pin travel map. With it, a couple can keep track of all the places they’ve already been, the places they want to go, and the distances in between them all.

The map comes personalized with their names and date established. Choose from several sizes, paper or canvas prints, and with or without a frame.

Because even though they may be expecting, this gift will be entirely unexpected, and something for which they’ll always be grateful.

There are several variations on this you can consider for expecting couples: An all-expenses-paid birth photography, “Fresh 48” photography for newborns (usually at the hospital, within 48 hours of birth), family and lifestyle photography shoot for after the baby is born.
