Amazing gifts for an amazing partner

Whether it’s for Valentine’s Day, their birthday, your anniversary –or simply just because– gifts and tokens (big or small) are always a great way to remind your significant other how special they are to you. Finding the right one, however, is not always so simple! We showcase a few options to inspire you.  

Something delicious…

If your partner has a bit of a foodie streak in them, then a gift to tantalize the tastebuds is definitely a yummy option. It could be a meal out to a new restaurant they’ve been meaning to try, a fancy kitchen gadget to help them craft their next culinary masterpiece, or just taking the time to learn to prepare one of their favorite dishes for them. You could investigate cooking, sushi making or wine pairing classes in your area; spoil them with some exotic herbs and spices for the kitchen, or with the latest glossy cookbook from their favorite chef.   

Something thoughtful…

Everyone has those chores and tasks they simply can’t work up much enthusiasm for – and if you’re on a tight budget, then stepping in and offering your services can make your SO’s day without costing a cent. Make a little booklet of vouchers they can call in when they’re just not in the mood, or offer to take over something you know they’ve been putting off – like filing away that growing pile of papers or doing a spring clean of the garage.  

Another excellent option for the kind-hearted souls out there is to provide their favorite charity with a donation on their behalf, or buying a gift that gives back to a worthy cause.  

Something saucy…

The best gifts are often the things we’d never even dream of actually buying for ourselves. But being nice doesn’t mean you can’t also be a little naughty! With such an enticing range of adult games, ladies and mens sex toys and various items to add a little intrigue in the bedroom out there, there are heaps of ways to up the excitement! As an added bonus, you’re reminding your partner just how sexy and appealing you still find them – and that’s always a great aphrodisiac.   

Something to experience together… 

Simply getting out and about together and trying something new can be a wonderful gift. A lot of the time, there are interesting and unique attractions right on our doorstep that we overlook. Walking tours, old houses or architectural features, small industry factory stores, art galleries and museums and other hidden gems are often right under our noses – and provide the perfect opportunity to spend time with your partner. 

If you’re looking for something a little less tame, then why not take the opportunity to do something really out there with an adventure activity you’ll never forget? If the budget allows, the gift of a weekend away somewhere romantic -where neither of you has to do the cooking or cleaning- can be a treat for you both!   

Something comforting…

On the other end of the spectrum, a gift that’s great for cuddle time can help let your partner feel safe, pampered and treasured. It might be a super comfy jumper or sweater, a deliciously soft and warm fluffy blanket or snuggie, or for the more whimsical partner, some silly slippers or even a supersize teddy bear to keep them company when you’re not around! 

Something they’ll treasure forever… 

If you’ve been together for a while, you’ve probably got heaps of digital photos of the two of you. Why not compile these into a slideshow or movie format, or even better, select your faves, have them printed out, and create a physical photo album or scrapbook of all your adventures?

If they’ve got a beloved pet, then having a professional artist do a portrait is always sure to go down a treat, and will always be there for them to display proudly. If they’re a keen collector of anything from stamps to souvenirs, buying them a nice display case or album to showcase their passion is a great way to show you support their hobby. 

Something that shows you really know them…

Everyone has their own unique quirks and passions, which might range from endearing to, well, perhaps a trifle annoying! But those quirks are also what make your significant other so special and unique – and showing you appreciate them for who they are is perhaps the greatest gift you can give anyone. Pay attention, and take the time to find a gift that shows you really ‘get’ them.
