best christmas gifts for couples

Struggling to find the perfect gift for everyone this Christmas? Why not make things a bit easier for yourself by buying joint gifts for the couples in your life?

Buying individual Christmas gifts for everyone can become overwhelming, especially if you don’t know everyone’s specific interests and preferences. Plus, many people insist they already have everything they could want, which makes buying individual gifts a total nightmare – unless you’ve already seen our list of unique Christmas gifts for someone who has everything!

Joint personalised Christmas gifts are a great option for those couples you don’t know so well, or for those who love to receive home decor items they can enjoy with their partner. Spread the joy of sharing this Christmas by taking inspiration from this list of unique Christmas gifts for couples.

Personalised Christmas gifts for couples

The best way to add some fun and personality to your Christmas gifts is to personalise them. As the years go by, it’s hard to find truly unique gifts that’ll surprise and delight your loved ones. With personalised Christmas gifts, you can gift something completely unexpected, ensuring that the recipient will remember your thoughtful gift for many years to come.

In addition, personalising a gift gives you the opportunity to add a heartfelt message, cheeky inside joke or treasured photo to the item, giving it much more meaning. If you want to give a joint Christmas gift that won’t be tucked away and forgotten, you should definitely opt for personalised Christmas gifts.

Are you a last-minute Christmas shopper? No problem! You can collect your personalised gift from your local Max Spielmann store in as little as 1 hour. To get started, all you need to do is visit our website, find your ideal gift, click the personalise button, add your photo or text, and then head to the checkout page. 

Don’t know where to start? Here are some ideas for personalised Christmas gifts for couples:

1. Photo canvas prints

Is the couple you have in mind a fan of wall art? Help them liven up their space with a gorgeous canvas print of their favourite photo(s). Canvas prints are the perfect way to show off wedding photos, family portraits or even cute pet pics – all of the most important milestones and treasured memories in a couple’s lives together.

Plus, you can choose from collage, retro, gallery, panoramic and slim canvas prints to ensure that your personalised gift fits the recipients’ interior design aesthetic.

2. Photo slates

If you’re looking for something a bit more low-key, a personalised photo slate could be ideal. Our beautiful photo slates use high-quality chiselled slate to add a unique, rustic feel to your home decor. If the couple you’re buying for loves to display their photos in a more understated yet stylish way, personalised photo slates could be a great joint Christmas gift.

3. Photo crystals

4. Photo frames

Sometimes simple gifts are the best. You can’t go wrong with a gorgeous photo frame that complements their home decor whilst also displaying all their favourite memories. To add a personal touch, you can choose an engraved wooden frame to add a thoughtful Christmas message.

Nowadays, we all take so many photos on our phones, but leaving them in our camera rolls just doesn’t have the same effect as displaying them proudly for all to see. Encourage the couples in your life to show off their best pics together with a personalised photo frame gift this Christmas.

5. Photo albums

Shopping for a couple that loves to take hundreds of selfies and holiday snaps? Give them a place to store and cherish these photos forever with a high-quality photo album. While smartphone cameras are extremely useful, digital photos just don’t have the same impact as physical photos do – and if you damage or lose your phone, you’ll lose all of your precious pics too! 

There’s nothing quite like flicking through a physical photo album to reminisce about the good old days, especially at Christmastime. Help your favourite couples preserve their best moments and memories with our range of gorgeous photo albums. Print out some photos yourself to create a ready-made, personalised photo album, or leave it blank for the recipients to customise themselves.

6. Personalised photo cushions

Looking for something a bit more fun and unique? Get the couples in your life something they definitely don’t already have with a personalised photo cushion. Print out a gorgeous wedding photo or a silly selfie – anything goes with these versatile decorative cushions. Plus, with the weather getting colder, they’ll be able to snuggle up together with their new photo cushion – perfect for those chilly December days.

Practical home gifts for couples

You can’t go wrong with practical home gifts that anyone could benefit from. If you don’t know much about a couple’s interests or interior design preferences, why not get them a handy gadget or kitchen tool that’ll make their lives easier? 

Here’s some inspiration for the best practical Christmas gifts for couples:

1. Engraved glassware

1. Family photoshoots

Whether this couple has their own children or is a family of two, a family photoshoot can help them capture gorgeous, high-quality family photos they can look back on in the years to come. Now that we all take our own photos on our phones, we can sometimes forget the value of having stunning professional photos that truly capture our most magical moments. Help couples rediscover this amazing experience this Christmas by giving them the gift of a Max Spielmann family photoshoot.

Have some of your friends or family recently had a baby? We also provide newborn photoshoots to help people preserve their memories of this period of their children’s lives. We even offer 4 FREE photoshoots throughout your baby’s first year – claim your baby photoshoot vouchers here!

 2. Pet photoshoots

Our furry friends are definitely part of the family too! A pet photoshoot is the perfect gift for dog and cat lovers, especially at Christmastime. The recipients of your photoshoot gift can dress up their furry friend in a Christmas outfit to create novelty photos – this is a great way to liven up next year’s Christmas cards! If their pets aren’t a fan of playing dress-up, a pet photoshoot is a fantastic opportunity to get some high-quality photos of animals that can never sit still for photos at home.
