I personally love to get interactive gifts. Consider getting your partner something that the both of you can enjoy doing together, such as tickets to a concert, a sports game of a favorite team, cooking classes or even trip tickets for a weekend getaway. Interactive experience gifts are like the gifts that keep giving because you get to enjoy memories of all the fun you two have had and for years to come.
When you’re in love and in a relationship, you might feel this extra pressure to get your partner an actual gift and that giving gift cards or money is impersonal and off-limits. However, there are ways that you can give the gift of moolah in an extra special way. For example, if you know that your significant other has really been saving up money for something like a pricey gadget or new camping equipment (but getting that gift is waaaaaaaay out of budget), you can do something fun like give your partner an old-fashioned piggy bank with a bit of cash tucked inside to start the fund raising. You can get extra creative and make a money-saving jar yourself with supplies from your local craft store. You can label it “Joe’s camping equipment fund.” By taking a personal approach, you can give your partner something they really want or need without sacrificing the thoughtfulness behind it.
Your gift doesn’t need to break the bank, either. Many couples set a price limit on holiday gifts so that one person isn’t out-spent and there’s no extra pressure to worry about. If you are recently married, a really thoughtful gift could be something like having your wedding invitations or photos framed as a keepsake.
