I know, I know, what a random item to kick off this gift guide, but if you’ve never laid in bed, snuggled with your loved one as a Spring storm starts rolling through and listened to the sounds of a wind chime in the distance . . . well, you’re missing out. It’s magical, trust me. And while the old metal wind chimes are fine, natural materials, like the one shown above, create a much more subtle and melodic tune that won’t disturb your, or your loved one’s, sleep.
As far as I’m concerned, beanies are like the modern day pack of socks. Practical, modest, but still a sweet gift to show your partner you care about them and their comfort. Wearing a beanie as an accessory is a trend I can get behind, although lets be serious, I’m more likely to wear them to cover up a bad hair day than I am for warmth. This Coal Beanie comes in a huge assortment of colors making it perfect for any season. Wanna be extra adorable: matching beanies for you and yours! That’s not overkill, that’s commitment!
Yah know those evenings when your partner agrees to run to the grocery store for you even though they JUST got comfy on the couch? And you feel terrible but you just realllly need cookie dough ice cream? Sound familiar? Then your partner needs these slippers! Yes, they’re a slipper, but they have a firm sole which makes them perfect for those late night snack runs. They also come in loads of fun colors and even come in velvet! Oooh lala!
Have a partner that loves to read but struggles to find the time? Does your partner also have a long commute? If so, I cannot recommend Audible enough. They have a huge selection of great books that can be enjoyed just about whenever – picking the kids up from school, running errands, driving home, it’s the best!
Okay, I realize these are a bit spendy, but as someone who works from home along with my partner – these are a real relationship saver! J and I can both be editing YouTube videos, listening to music, or even watching funny cat videos without distracting one another. It’s not only good for our relationship, its good for our productivity levels: win-win!
If your partner is the primary chef in the house, do them a favor and invest in a good chef’s knife! I had no idea what a huge difference a nice knife made until I used one myself – I mean, I wasn’t using it for actual cooking of course, but I could feel the power regardless. A good chef’s knife is something you’ll have for years, and something every home chef appreciates.
It may not feel like it just yet, but Spring is upon us and what better way to welcome in the warmer weather than by creating a mini herb garden with your SO? Personally I find building and growing things together with my partner to be so rewarding, and growing something that will later add flavor to our shared meals? That really warms my cold, cold heart.
Also, it’s amazing, for realsies.
Okay, I know, this is soooo boring. However, EVERY SINGLE ITEM on this list was one I found off of Amazon – and that was not intentional. Sometimes indulging in some fancy new bathroom soaps really ARE the mundane pleasures that make our SOs feel excited and loved – and isn’t making our partners feel valued and loved really what this holiday is all about?
