Get Their Favorite Alcoholic Beverage
If your lover likes to wind down and sip a bit of alcohol, help them stock up on their favorite drink. Keep in mind that it doesn’t have to be fancy to be an excellent gift! In fact, it can be as simple as a tasty bottle of wine to share together over a warm, loving toast. Champagne is also a great option, as it adds a ritzy, celebratory element to your shared holiday.
Truthfully, the drink in question doesn’t need to contain alcohol. In fact, there are a number of fantastic seasonal drinks, like gingerbread eggnog or hot cocoa, that will do the job just as well.
Plan An Exciting Trip
There are so many different trips that you can plan, but the most important part is that you and your partner enjoy it as a unit.
You can settle on a great place by asking a few probing questions a few months prior to jetting off. That way, you have enough time to decide and to make the necessary preparations.

While you’re traveling, you may be tempted to visit all of the usual tourist destinations, but it’s important that you don’t overspend on things that aren’t completely worth it.
Another great traveling idea is to go to a place where you and your partner share memories—where you were proposed to, for example, or where you first met. If this option isn’t surprising enough for you, you could also give your partner a selection of potential trips so that you have more variety at your fingertips.
Arts and Crafts Projects
Giving gifts around the holidays is a special tradition, of course, but it’s rare to get a handmade gift from someone you love.
A fantastic way to bond is with crafts projects that you can share around the holidays. You might even surprise your other half with a handmade gift like a painting, a piece of origami, or a clay figurine. The possibilities are endless.
The best part is that you don’t have to be a master artist to make something truly special; it’s the thought and effort that count.

Add A New Pet to The Family
Getting a new pet will win you an instant smile, but you need to know whether your partner is a dog or cat person (or if they’re more into birds or fish)! Most importantly, you should make sure that they aren’t allergic to pet hair and dander.
If you choose to add a pet to the family, be mindful of the responsibility that comes with it, and take care of it equally so that your partner doesn’t feel as though they’ve been left with the obligation of caring for the pet you bought.
Rather than purchasing your pet from a store or breeder, try rescuing one from a local shelter; it’s not only rewarding to save an animal’s life, but reassuring to know that they’re safe and in a caring home!
Get Your Dream Bodies Together
You might have heard your significant other say that they want to be slimmer. Maybe you also wish you could fit into your old clothes again.
A superb gift for the holidays might be a one-way ticket to getting that summer dream body together!
There are so many ways to achieve this goal—working out and dieting come to mind—but most take months, if not longer, to yield satisfying outcomes.
Personally, I surprised my wife last Christmas with a couple’s CoolSculpting session, and we both fell in love! Plus, the results are permanent, so we don’t have to worry about pesky touch-up sessions.
Surprise Them with A Romantic Dinner Date
Nothing beats an old-fashioned dinner date!
You know that restaurant your sweetheart is always chirping about? It’s time to schedule a reservation and treat them there. Or, you can make a healthy homemade dinner, adding a unique touch to the evening by playing your favorite love songs and decorating for the perfect romantic atmosphere. For the cherry on top, surprise them with their favorite dessert!
Taking a more individualized approach to love is the best way to impress your partner, and to show that your love is true.
Create A Memory Scrapbook
Nothing says “I love you” more than a memory scrapbook!
If you’ve shared a lot of memories, a scrapbook is a unique gift that can help you both relive your loveliest moments. Make sure to leave room for many more photographs so that you can continue to add to the scrapbook over the years and include personalized notes that describe each memory, so your lover gets a sense of how special they are to you.
Scrapbooking can be a time-consuming project, so don’t leave it for the last minute; plan a few months prior to the holidays to make sure the book is just right and personalize it as much as you can so that you and your partner can flourish!
