7 Gift Ideas For Your Spouse

Gift Ideas

If you and your spouse have been together for a long time, it can be really hard to think up new and creative gifts to give each other year after year. If you’re looking for some new ideas, check out this list of 7 gift ideas for your spouse:

A Subscription Service

There’s a subscription service out there for everyone these days. There’s beauty subscriptions, video game subscriptions, food subscriptions, subscriptions for niche interests. Some of them send monthly, some send quarterly. Chances are, you can find something that fits your spouse’s interest.

You could buy just one month’s box or you can buy several months upfront. If you buy a full year, it will be like they’re celebrating their birthday every month!

The best thing about subscription services is that a team of professionals is curating what comes in each box. If your spouse is interested in something that you know nothing about, it will take a lot of effort to anticipate what they want, don’t want, what’s good, or what’s cheap. With a subscription service, the box is already put together for you! All you have to do is order, and the professionals do the rest.

Support Their Hobbies

Maybe your spouse has taken up a new interest in the last couple of months. Maybe they started cooking more or are learning how to knit. Buying them something that they can use for their new hobby can help to keep them motivated and excited about it.

Even if it’s a hobby that you think is silly or might not last long, buy something anyway. Your support for their interest will mean a lot to them.

A Customized Tshirt

A customized tshirt is a great way to ensure that you’re giving them a one of a kind gift that they don’t already have. And, customized shirts from www.screenprintthis.com cost less than 20 bucks.

You can put whatever you want on the tshirt. Be creative! It could have a quote from a movie or show that they love. It could be an inside joke that you share. It could even be a shirt with the name of the city you met in or where you went on your honeymoon.

There really are no rules with this one. And the shirts from Screen Print This  are good quality. A screen printed shirt looks better and lasts longer than shirts that you order from photo development sites or that you try and DIY with an iron. It’s professionally done and your spouse will actually want to wear it.

Do Something You Hate that They Love

Is there a restaurant in town that your spouse loves but you hate? Maybe your spouse loves going to art galleries, but you think it’s a snooze. Whatever it is, suck it up and take your spouse on a date that involves the thing that they love.

Chances are, your spouse participates in that thing significantly less because you hate it. If you show them that you’re willing to be a good sport and tag along with them, it will show that you care about them and their interests (even if they aren’t your interests).

Gift Ideas

A Water Bottle

One of the only things to leave the house with me every single day is my water bottle. It helps me stay hydrated, saves me money, and cuts back on my plastic waste. A reusable water bottle is probably the most practical gift that you could give.

If you want a sturdy water bottle with a modern design, look no further. Kool8 is the water bottle of your dreams. Don’t just take my word for it. Cool Things Chicago rated it as the best water bottle of 2019!

It keeps beverages hot or cold for hours. It’s sturdy if your taking it with you on outdoor excursions but it’s sleek design also makes it appropriate for use in a professional setting. It even has a built-in tea infuser! I can make tea while I’m getting ready for work in the morning, make my commute, get settled in at my desk, and my tea is still piping hot.

It comes in a few colors, so you can pick one that fits your spouse’s taste the best. Then, with just a few clicks, you can get all of your holiday shopping done without ever leaving home. It’s an all-around win if you ask me.

Buy Tickets to a Local Event

Don’t take your spouse out on the same date you take them out on any other night. If you’re always going out for dinner and a movie, don’t you dare take them out for dinner and a movie on their birthday or your anniversary.

Mix it up! Make it special!

Look for events near you that are different or interesting. See a concert, even if it’s for a local band you’ve never heard of. Catch a comedy show or an open mic. Do something that you wouldn’t normally do. Maybe it will become a new tradition.

A Star Map

Star maps are the trendiest way to commemorate an important day. Twinkleintime is a website that allows you to set a specific date and location to generate a map of what the stars looked like that day. You can add a personalized message and tweak the design to make it even more unique.

These star maps have a beautiful minimalistic design, so it can work in any room, no matter the decor. This is a cool and unique way to represent a day that is important to your spouse. Maybe it’s your wedding anniversary or the day that you met. Whatever date you choose, a star map is a great way to honor the memory of it.

I hope these unique gift ideas have sparked your creativity. Don’t let years of gift-giving get you into a rut. Try something new this year by choosing an item off of this list to surprise your spouse.
