Want to treat yourself and your partner at the same time, for an anniversary or Valentine’s Day? Or perhaps commemorate the wedding of a special couple you know by giving them both a gift they’ll never forget? See our list of perfect matching gift ideas for couples.

Engraved Wine Glasses
A classy anniversary or wedding gift for the chic couple in your life (or just for yourselves!) is to have some crystal wine glasses engraved and personalized. Enjoy an after-work drink or weekend glass of wine in glasses that are tailored to you.
If wine isn’t your drink, go for a set of matching mugs instead. Mugs emblazoned with initials are easy to find in stores and can be customized by craftspeople however you would like. Find them on Etsy or in plenty of high-street stores.
Matching necklaces for couples don’t have to be corny. A fine chain with a pendant that means something to you, or simply the other person’s initial, makes a beautiful gift. For those who don’t like rings or want to do something different, these can be a great alternative to explore to classic wedding bands. Some people who don’t want to wear rings on their fingers wear them around their neck on a chain instead. Promise rings or bracelets are also lovely presents.
A symbol of permanent commitment like no other – matching couple’s tattoos are only for partners who want to immortalize their bond forever. It doesn’t have to be names or initials: symbols, designs or anything else that means something to you as a couple is equally special. Ring finger tattoos have become a stylish alternative to wearing wedding rings.
Frame a lovely photo of the couple or maybe commission an artist to sketch or paint them in their signature style. If you don’t want to choose a picture yourself, gift the couple a matching photo frame set that they can fill with whatever they like.
Couple’s Adventures World Map
A personalized scratch map or pushpin map makes a gorgeous gift for the couple who love to travel and go on adventures together. Go for a printed picture that you can add their names and anniversary date to, then they can scratch out or mark the places they’ve traveled together. This makes a wonderful gift for weddings – their first marker can be their honeymoon destination.
For a thoughtful and memorable present, give the gift of an experience. This could be as simple as a meal for two, or something out-of-the-box and adventurous like go-karting, horse-riding or rock climbing. Other ideas include spa days, cocktail making classes, salsa dancing, a night at a boutique hotel, wine tasting… The possibilities are endless, and you are bound to stumble across something perfect for the lucky person or people.
Robes & Loungewear
While you’re heading off to that spa or luxury hotel getaway, don’t forget to bring your matching toweling robes complete with monogrammed initials on the back – perfect to celebrate an engagement weekend away or perhaps your first vacation together.
Online retailers pretty much offer everything personalized these days, and some cute matching heart cushions stamped with the couple’s initials will be a sweet and cozy addition to their home. For the boudoir, go for initialed silk pillows.
New Home Keyrings
Have you or a couple you know just moved into a new home together? A lovely housewarming gift would be some matching keyrings for their new house keys. Get creative and think of what kind they would like! Wooden engraved varieties are popular, but anything that comes as two of a kind will do.
Matching Sports Gifts
For the active couple, try gifting something they’ll use and enjoy – like a set of monogrammed tennis rackets or running shoes. Encourage their competitive streak and present them with something they can show off together at the gym.
