Packing cubes for couples
Travelling as a couple can be difficult, especially when space in the luggage is limited. We sometimes travel with one single large suitcase on long hauls so we don't have to drag two massive pieces of luggage across the world. Honestly, this can leave a bit of a mess, as our clothes can get all mixed up. Since we discovered the benefits of packing cubes, we became packing pros. Seriously, it's great. Packing cubes are also great to compress the clothes hence allowing travellers to have more space in the suitcase. They are pretty epic, totally affordable and make an excellent gift for couples who love to travel together.
We picked these packing cubes because we've been using them for a very long time and we are immensely satisfied with their quality. We are using the blue & black combo so we can separate our items with ease. Click below to order these amazing packing cubes for couples.
Car organiser for road-trippers
Where was this organiser when we needed it? We started doing long road trips around 2 years ago and we started with our long Europe road trip. We knew nothing about how it's like to pack for the road, live on the road, do everything car-related. It was a learning curve for sure. Around half a year ago we discovered this car organiser as recommended by another travelling couple: game changer. There are some idle items we use in the car and this organiser made it so much easier to put everything back in its place and make space for our luggage. Not to mention, when we stop to buy souvenirs or small items, we can immediately put them in the organiser without items clanking in the truck, breaking and so on. Easy and incredibly practical.
We picked this particular product because it's great for long road trips as well as groceries. So even if you don't travel with it, it's great to take it with you when you go shopping. No more plastic waste! Click below to order the super practical car organiser.
Great conversation starters
Communication is vital for any relationship to work. We love talking to one another. Seriously, we tell each other everything and spend 24/7 together. That's dedication and honestly, it really works for us. However, we are not going to lie: some of those road trips we just mentioned? Can be a buzz killer. Imagine endless miles of boring motorway with no beautiful landscape or cool radio station for mental stimulation. At some point, you go blank and have no starting point for a conversation. It happens and it sucks. So, we discovered that if we have several conversation points we can get back into the talking mood and make time pass a lot faster and in a super fun way during boring drives. It's great.
We picked this product because it's small and easy to travel with. It contains a lot of quirky questions which can be a great conversation starting point. All you have to do is pick a question at random, and let the conversation flow.
Camping ceramic cups for two
Who doesn't love a fun camping session at the weekend? We sure do as we are outdoorsy people. It enables us to disconnect and immerse in nature. And sometimes, we love being cheesy too... like when we went on a camping trip with friends and insisted we have these very cute Mr. and Mrs. mugs with us. We thought everyone will laugh at us but turns out, these mugs were an immense success so we ended up buying several sets for all our married friends.
We picked these because everyone loves cheesy pictures on Instagram with couples camping, holding their mugs in their hands. These are super cute and durable and all our friends loved them, so we can all vouch for them. Click below to order these super cute camping ceramic cups for two.

This Xmas one of our friends sent us this awesome snarky colouring book which is super funny. We'll get to colour stuff like the Great Toilet Seat Stand-Off. Trust us, married couples will totally understand this one.

A 3-year journal for two people

Personalised cutting board
It's time to get to awesome gifts for couples who love their food and time in the kitchen. The truth is, we love cooking together when we don't travel. We sometimes spend hours preparing our food, making it looks nice. We do this at least once or twice a week because it's our way to have fun dates while at home. It's not because we don't enjoy going out, but we believe it's best to make our home feel like an amazing place for dating too. No distractions, no movies in the background, just the two of us, a bottle of wine and amazing food we prepared together.

Luxury wine tumbler for two
Hey wine lovers, we are looking at you. We know you love your wine served chilled even when you are out and about, so what better way to do so than by having two stainless steel tumblers for wine. You can pick your own colour and you can also use them for coffee or tea on the go. We have two which we use for our morning coffee when we road trip and another set which we use for wine when we travel. We don't carry wine glasses with us so we wanted to find a suitable and efficient replacement.
We picked these because we have two sets and we really loved them. We are pleased with the quality and size. Perfect shape as well, so the wine doesn't taste weird when drank from these tumblers. Click below to order these luxury wine tumblers for couples.
Nespresso coffee maker
Since we started talking about cute couples who love spending time in their kitchen, we thought we should discuss the ultimate gift for couples: a coffee machine. Mornings mark the beginning of the day so if you can start your morning right, then your day will be awesome. What's the best way to ensure a morning is great? An amazing cup of coffee with your loved one. We invested in a Nespresso coffee maker and can't get enough of it.
We picked a Nespresso coffee maker because we've been using one for the past 4 years. We take it with us when we move houses because we can't function without coffee in the morning. It's easy to use and perfect for busy couples who enjoy a morning routine together. Click below to order a Nespresso coffee maker.

Cookbook for couples
We wish we had a cookbook handy before we started cooking together. We did a lot of internet searches and took us quite some trials and errors until we perfected our cooking skills. Besides, having a cookbook would be a fun game: open the book and cook the first thing you find on the page. We now have lots of cookbooks and we still get them as presents from family and friends who know how much we appreciate them.
We picked this item because cookbooks are handy and practical. This particular cookbook has over 70 weeknight meals for two.

You can pick a variety of options depending on what the couple in questions prefers. Sometimes we like going for something a little quirkier like the design you can see below.

We are masters of keeping ourselves warm. We love living in relatively cold countries so having our cosy time is essential. We invested in a nice throw which is big enough for both of us to cuddle up under on the sofa. We have our Netflix sessions where we just love to have a relaxing evening with popcorn, movies and a comfortable throw.

Scrapbook for couples
For our first Xmas together, I made a scrapbook for G. I included all our first messages, stories and made fun handmade trees and paths to showcase our first dates together. We then continued to add to our scrapbook, every time we'd do something special together. We have a scrapbook for our travels and lots of handmade photo albums as well. We know it's important to cherish every moment as a couple and we wouldn't want to miss a thing. That's why we encourage couples to get a scrapbook and add their own crafted story. It's also a lot of fun and something to do together instead of watching telly.
We picked this scrapbook because it comes with a few DIY items to get you started. Click below to order a cute scrapbook for couples.
Custom Slate Coasters
Once couples start investing money in that amazing furniture they saved for, they are going to using coasters.

We want to continue to travel and experience the world and we hope to encourage others to follow our lead and live an endless adventure.

Digital Photo Album
We love looking at our holiday pictures taken abroad, so it's nice to have lots of frames all around the house. However, since we travel a lot and change our home base often, there are times when we can't carry all our photo frames with us. However, we recently invested in a digital photo album as an Xmas present for ourselves. We like it so much because we can see a new photo every single time we pass by the frame. It's really sweet and a nice memory trigger.
