Christmas is always a special time of year! You’re spending time with family and friends, and let’s not forget to mention the indulging on your favorite foods, and gifts! It can be difficult finding the perfect gift for your significant other. Trust me, there are plenty of Christmas gift ideas out there.

Christmas gift ideas

I encourage you to not stress and overthink too much because then you are destined to end up on the news as one of those crazed black Friday shoppers! You know your significant other better than anyone, so listening to your heart will help make this holiday a special one. Check out these out of these 6 Christmas gift ideas that will have your loved one feeling the love all year round.

Adventure book

If you have never seen the animated movie UP – I highly encourage you to check out this family-friendly film! The film centers on an elderly widower named Carl Fredricksen and an earnest boy named Russell. By tying thousands of balloons to his house, Carl sets out to fulfill his dream to see the wilds of South America to complete a promise made to his late wife, Ellie.

In the film, Carl and his late wife created an adventure book that displayed all the fun adventures the two had gone on. If you and your loved one travel often, or share memorable experiences, this would be a great Christmas gift idea that can be shared with your friends and family. Your adventure book can detail all the fun the two of you share and all the fun you want to explore with each other.

Personalized Jewelry

Jewelry is always a nice gift to give to someone you deeply care about. It is something that can always be cherished and can be worn with anything. Depending on the style your boo likes to wear, you can do something a little more personal like a name plated necklace or bracelet. If you want to be a little more creative you can gift a Morse code necklace saying your favorite love phrase or your boo’s name.

Bucket List Journal

Creating a bucket list of things you and your boo would like to do for the upcoming years is a fun way of always having a date night planned and ready to go! No more twiddling your thumbs and asking the same question bouncing from your mouth to theirs of “so what do you want to do tonight?”

Bucket lists can be fun and affordable when creating. However, shared with the right company they can be worth more than all the riches in the world. Before the year ends have a few bucket list ideas you would like to experience and each month let the other person write some down and before the year is up you will have a full journal you can look back on full of memories!

DIY Picture Frame

Countless times we always fall under the pressure of purchasing a gift for loved ones with the assumption that we have to spend thousands of dollars. CGS is here to share that a gift from the heart does not need to run your pockets dry. As the old saying goes, a picture says a thousand words, so why not find the best picture of you and your love bird and place it in a frame that compliments your personalities?!

The picture can be placed in your home for guests to see or even in your office for colleagues to admire. If you want to get a little more personal you can gift a DIY picture frame with heart felt messages written around the frame. Whatever your preference is to give to you boo, we know they will love and cherish forever.

Couples Game

There are a ton of games for couples to play but this card game is like no other the name of the game is called “Our Moments.” The box includes 100 unique conversation starters ranging from basic and lighthearted to more serious situations.

With questions like, "What was your proudest moment from the last 12 months?" and "What's one dream that you've tucked away for the moment?" you're sure to find something you and your significant other can really connect with each other. This game is a great conversation starter and a fun way to learn about your partner.

 Massage Gift Certificates

Whoever does not enjoy a nice relaxing massage has never gotten one done correctly! Massages are the best gifts to show your loved one you care about them and their well being. There are tons of massage places that range from affordable to expensive, depending on the type of services you need.

A gift certificate is great because you can use it whenever you would like. A few massage places offer a variety of services and not just body massages, so depending on what your boo loves, you can pick from them. I promise you this is a gift that will go down in gift history. I also recommend a couple’s massage package! You won’t regret it.
