With Christmas just around the corner, it can be tricky to work out what to get your beloved. Work your way through our list for some ideas and inspiration.
For her, a beautiful bottle of perfume is always something extra special. Buy her favourite scent or something new that reminds you of her. It could even be something she uses on your big day.
If your fiancée is a perfume collector, remember that what the bottle looks like is as important as how it smells. Opt for something pretty that really stands out, as it will no doubt be on display.
For a real spoil, you really can’t go wrong with an iPhone (or an i-anything). Choose a metallic or dusty pink colour so that she can find it in the seemingly never-ending abyss that is her handbag.
A 2017 planner will keep her organised and efficient – plus is a place where she can keep track of all of her wedding appointments too. Try to get a combined diary and notebook, so that she can keep everything in one place.
When it comes to stocking fillers, chocolate should be your first choice. Every. Single. Time.
Create a spa-at-home experience for her with a range of luxurious lotions and gels. For something extra special, place a few ‘I owe you’ cards with the wording ‘candlelit bubble bath’ on them. It will be the perfect way for her to unwind after a long day of wedding planning.
If your fella is a techie guy or travels a lot for work, then an iPhone will keep you two connected, even when he is jetting around the globe.
If your fiancé is really into his fitness – or even if you’re both trying to lose a bit of weight before the wedding – then a Fitbit should be top of your list. It automatically records any exercise, prompts you with reminders to move and tracks your sleep patterns to get you into a healthy routine.
Another option is to subscribe to a healthy meal service for the two of you. It will save you heaps of time, plus give you the healthy kick-start you need for the New Year.
A personalised mug for your significant other is a sweet idea. Pair this with their favourite coffee or specialised tea and you will make mornings something to look forward to.
Something for your house is also a great idea. You can buy a combined present that you both benefit from – like a new braai for entertaining friends – or you could go much smaller, like these quirky scatter cushions.
Above all, remember that Christmas and the summer holidays is all about time with your loved one(s). Experiences – big and small… even putting up the Christmas tree – can be turned into fun quality time. Merry Christmas!
