Ideas for Gifts for You as a Couple

By

The movie 500 Days of Summer made the concept of "I Love Us" as a couple popular. Later, Hallmark reinforced the idea.

Whether it be for Valentine's Day, birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries, or other special occasions in your marriage, a his and her gift for you as a couple can be fun, romantic, or practical. Here are some ideas to get your own creative gift giving juices flowing.

Comfy Robes Set

Consider really soft, plushy type robes that have pockets, self-tie belts, and loops to make hanging them on a hook more easy. Getting the robes monogrammed is another recommendation. Stay away from flannel.
