How many people do you have to buy for this holiday season? As our families grow so do our gift lists, and sometimes a little trimming is necessary to save and stay on budget. Here’s a thought — rather than buying for your sister and your brother-in-law, why not give them one gift they will both enjoy? Here are a few gifts for couples that are meant to be shared. The recipients may end up fighting over them, but that’s their problem. A friendly reminder — prices are subject to change.
iCoffee Opus: $119.99 at Bed, Bath & Beyond
If they’re still using an old-school brewer, it’s time for an upgrade. This single-cup brewer uses spinning technology to stir the grounds inside the cup (instead of shooting water through the middle, like most single-cup brewers) yielding a rich brew that is not bitter. K-Cups can be used, but the brewer also comes with a refillable cup that can be filled with the couple’s coffee of choice so they’re not clogging up landfills with all those cups.
Electrohome Karaoke Machine Portable Speaker System: $69.96 at Ratuken
They’re always the last pair at the mic on Karaoke Night so maybe it’s time to bring the singing home. This portable device has its own screen, so unlike similarly priced machines, it doesn’t need to be connected to a TV. Tunes can be played via CD or MP3 and the high quality speakers and mic guarantee great sound. There are even controls to match the music to their pitch and vocal range. They can even make their own voice sound like a pro’s!
Novogratz Collection Mr. and Mrs. Mugs: $12.99 per set at Bed, Bath & Beyond
C’mon, what’s not to love about these Mr. and Mrs. Mugs? I’m also a fan of the Be Yourself and Make it Happen mugs from the same collection.
RawSpiceBar Subscription: $6 per month at RawSpiceBar
Spice things up with these monthly spice boxes. Each month, your recipients will receive three fresh and tasty spices from a specific region along with three tested recipes and info on each spice. When you order, you will receive a certificate via email that you can print and present.
Gaea Sitia Extra Virgin Olive Oil: $14.39 at Vitacost
If they’re not that adventurous, play it safe with this flavorful and award-winning EVOO from the region of Sitia in Crete, known for its quality olive oils. This cold extracted olive oil is derived from handpicked Koroneiki olives and will add a unique element to any dish.
Calm Spirit Body Mist and Acupressure Gel Set
Price: $48 at Jenise Parris
If this couple needs a little downtime, this set will help get them started. The mist is made from fresh spring water and fragrant organic essential oils like Frankincense and Vetiver, and can be used to scent a room or can be sprayed directly on the body. The acupressure gel, which is made with the same oils, is applied to pressure points to encourage a calming response.
Star Wars Han and Leia Hand Towels
Price: $19.99 at Think Geek
Whether they are Star War fans or not, these Han Solo and Princess Leia hand towels are surefire winners.
Joseph Joseph M-Cuisine Rice & Grain Cooker
Price: $25 at Joseph Joseph
You’re not sure who’s to blame, but this couple cannot make good rice! Now, they’ll be able to microwave perfect rice every time and serve it right from this stylish container.
Wurkin Stiffs Doppel Bag
Price: $49 at The Grommet
This silicone dopp kit is great for family travel. It’s roomy enough to hold all the necessary toiletries, and it’s leak-free in case someone forgets to tighten the top of the mouthwash.
