This is both a keepsake that can be enjoyed for years to come as well as an activity that the couple and their family can complete together.
There are seven pieces to this scratch-off world set. The main piece is the world map. This map includes all the countries of the world in surprising detail. The countries are all covered in a monotone tan foil with the oceans being black. Each continent uses a specific color from the color scheme. Each individual country is a shade of the continent’s color. The countries are marked by both their names and their capitals. All the oceans and many islands are also marked on the map. There are also defining items draw on some countries like the silhouette of the Sydney Opera House in Australia and safari animals across Africa.
The second item that comes in the pack is a complimentary map of the United States. This map focuses solely on the couple’s journey around America. It includes all fifty states and their capitals, each state in a different color. Before it is scratched off, it has the corresponding black water and tan land look of the world map, making it a set. Both the world map and the United States map include all the flags of each place along the bottom of the maps. They are the same tan color until they are scratched off, revealing their official flag colors.
In addition to the maps, the package also includes event stickers. These event stickers represent common vacation activities that are done around the world such as scuba diving and surfing. The stickers can be added to the map to mark activities done in special places, like surfing off the coast of Australia or scuba diving in the Caribbean. There are also stickers to represent the means of travel, such as a car or plane to represent how you arrived at your destination.
The last four items are the packaging, the hanging bars, a magnifying glass, and the scratcher. The scratcher looks like a guitar pick. This makes it easy to hold, while still being precise when scratching off the specific place visited. The magnifying glass helps you see the smaller countries when scratching them off for even more precision. The packaging is a large tube that will hold the two maps rolled up. The tube is marked for gift giving by having a place to write who the maps are to and who they are from. The hanging bars go along the top of the map and the bottom of the map to keep it flat and allow it to be hung on the wall while still being exposed for regular scratching.
The world map measures a total of 24 inches long by 17.3 inches high. The map of the USA measures 17 inches long by 13 inches high. The maps are printed on high quality 350GSM laminated paper.

Any regular household item can become a special gift with a little personalization. One very popular item to personalize is cutting boards, due to their large surface area. Here is a cutting board that allows for personalization, but is positioned in a way that the cutting board can also be practically used as a regular cutting board, making it one of the best choices for a personalized cutting board gift option.
Qualtry offers more than just a customized cutting board. You can choose from different shapes, designs, and personalization styles. The boards are then customized and shipped within 24 hours of ordering them. Each board you order will be laser engraved, which will help the customization last longer than printing.
The board is available in either a bamboo wood, which is durable and natural, yet has pores that will not hold in the bacteria which can cause dangerous growth. The mahogany is a beautiful color and stronger material that would be ideal for a more decorative board. The mahogany board is available in 10×15 while the bamboo is either in 11×13 or 11×17. For the best care, the boards should be hand washed as prolonged exposure to the heat of a dishwasher can cause the wood to blister and split over time.
There are eleven different styles to choose from. Most of the engraving styles feature a name, initial, and date. This date would be great for either a wedding date for newlyweds and anniversary gifts or a move-in date for housewarming gifts. There are many styles that will fill the entire board with a decorative engraving, which makes the cutting board better for hanging up as a decoration. There are are also a few styles available where the engraving is on the side or bottom of the board. This allows the rest of the board to be free for regular use without worrying about messing up the engraving. This makes the board more practical.

One item that a couple will always need is a towel. A couple may receive towels at their wedding as gifts. Towels are one of those household items that multiples are needed of. You will need a towel for each family member, guests, and extras to use when towels are in the wash.

Earlier, the gift idea was given of presenting that special couple you know with a set of matching wine glasses. Not every couple is a wine-loving couple. Many couples have a difference in tastes when it comes to adult beverages. This is where this set comes in handy. Instead of a matching wine set, it comes with one wine glass and one beer glass. In this way, the wife can enjoy her mojitos while the husband enjoys his Bud Light, while still having the joy of corresponding glasses celebrating their differences.
Both items are made from a sturdy glass. The set is made in the USA, following the stricter national production laws for quality in craftsmanship. The customization is printed on the glass.

It is made for the wife and has the large words “Queen” written across the front underneath the silhouette of a queen’s crown. The printing for the wine glass is in white.

The gifts that most couples may say they want most are items that cannot be touched. These include more time together, less stress, more sleep, and so many other parts of life that seem to slip by faster than we’d like in our adult lives. These items cannot be wrapped up, but there are tangible items that help provide the circumstances for couples to enjoy the intangible. One such item is a double hammock.
A couple should not need to choose between relaxing or spending time together. So many items, like recliners or a bubble bath, may not accommodate two people very well, and may lead to a couple having to choose between their partner and relaxation. This is one area that they will not need to choose. This hammock is specially designed to hold two people at one time.

The hammock is very sturdy quality. It is not just a hammock for hanging in your backyard, though that is a great place to keep it. It is also sturdy enough to bring along for camping or backpacking. The hammock itself, while it can hold a large amount of weight, is very lightweight. It is also very easy and quick to set up anywhere you may be. It can be assembled in less than 3 minutes. The hammock comes with two ropes each measuring 137 inches long, two tree-friendly straps each measuring 52 inches long and 1 inch wide, and two solid steel carabiners.

You can now treat a couple with high-quality tasty treats. This gift tower makes a great gift on its own, or can be combined with other items. Snacks are a great way to introduce a gift of a date night. Along with the snacks, you can also give the couple a movie rental, fleece blanket, and a pair of matching pajamas to give them the gift of a night in with their very own comfortable movie theater in a box.

What every couple most likely would like is a way to make their lives just a little easier so they can spend less time keeping their house in order and more time with each other. One particular activity that takes quite a bit of time out of the day is making meals, whether breakfast, lunch, dinner, or any snacks in between. The challenge of what to eat is a constant struggle. You can give them this practical gift of a breakfast sandwich maker that can help give another tasty, quick, and easy meal option so more time can be spent together and less time in the kitchen.
This sandwich maker is labeled as a breakfast sandwich maker due to its smaller size, but could be used for any meal with a little creativity. The sandwich maker can make either one or two sandwiches. The sandwiches will be ready in as short as five minutes. To make this process shorter, some items can be cook ahead of time to ensure all food safety procedures are followed. This is especially true for meats.
This is just the sandwich maker, what goes inside the sandwich maker is entirely up to the person using it. It can be used along with eggs, cheese, meat, and so many other ingredients to make dozens of unique and healthy meals in as easy as a click of a button.
The sandwich maker comes with three separate section to each sandwich area. The bottom section is a large bowl area where the bottom loaf of the sandwich is placed. On top of the sandwich is where most of the ingredients are placed such as cheese, tomatoes, spinach, meat, and whatever other fresh and healthy ingredients you would like on your sandwich. The middle section is where an egg is placed. It has a removable separator. This helps keep the egg contained while it cooks. When it is cooked, the separator is removed, and the fully cooked egg lands neatly on top of the sandwich. The top part of the sandwich maker is where the top loaf sits. It is then evenly toasted and placed on top of the egg.
The sandwich maker is very simple to use. Once the food items are placed, it is as simple as setting the timer. There are multiple quick and easy recipes that come with the sandwich maker. Each one provides the necessary time for cooking all the items. When the cooking time is over, the sandwich maker will let out an audible tone letting you know it is time to retrieve your sandwiches. All the parts that are removable can be quickly and easily washed in the dishwasher.
- This is a very practical gift.
- It is flexible in its use and comes with many recipe options.
- It makes two sandwiches at one time.
- This is not as personal of a gift.
- It makes smaller sandwiches, so it would work better for breakfast sandwiches than other meals.
As mentioned earlier, food is always a sure thing in any couple’s life. Gifting food is a great way to ensure you are giving a gift that would be used. The downside of giving food is that the gift will not last. Once the food is eaten, the gift is gone. Another way to gift food in a way that lasts longer is through gifting it using items that can be kept. One great gift is a cheese board. A cheese board is a great way for couples to serve snacks and other items for either themselves or during parties. This specific cheese board by Bambusi makes for an elegant gift that will be used from time and time again and would be great paired with a gift of the couple’s favorite wine and a few delicious kinds of cheese.
The cheese board is made from a beautiful bamboo that is both organic and kitchen safe. Bamboo is ideal as a cutting board because of the smaller pores. This leads to the board absorbing less liquids that could eventually lead to a buildup of bacteria. Bamboo is also known for preventing stains or smells from holding on to the wood as some other cheaper materials do. This makes this cutting board perfect for owning for years to come even with regular use.
The board measures 13 inches by 13 inches square and is 2 inches tall. The square shape has a raised center area that measures about 9 inches by 9 inches and is designed as a cutting board. This area is ideal for cheeses and other items that will need to be cut. The edges are dipped like a moat and will hold crackers, meats, or other items in a neat row.
This is more than just a cutting board. It also contains the knives necessary for cutting a variety of different items. One side of the cutting board pulls out as a drawer. This drawer contains four different types of utensils. Each one is made from a sturdy stainless steel. They also have beautiful bamboo handles for both comfort and strength. The draw can be removed completely to make cleaning even easier. The board not only comes with the cutting knives, but also chalk signs. There are two pieces of chalk as well as black signs that are made to be turned into labels. This is a great way to let your guests know what each of the cheeses are. The boards can then be wiped clean and rewritten each time the tray is set up.
- This is a very high-quality cheese tray.
- It will last for years to come.
- The tray comes with serving knives and cheese signs.
- This is a less personal gift.
- It is a larger tray that will require space to store it between uses.
As mentioned multiple times before, gifting a way to make memories can be one of the best gifts to give a couple. While some memories can be made at home, there are so many more memories that can be made when a couple is encouraged to leave their home for an adventure. This four-person picnic bag by VonShelf helps make taking an everyday routine of eating a meal to a new level by allowing more versatility. You can now give the gift of allowing the couple to combine eating with adventuring together.
A regular picnic basket can be bulky and difficult to carry. This limits the places it can be used. Most people who use picnic baskets will park their car close to the picnic location and walk just a short distance as a basket is not easy to carry long distances. A picnic bag is designed as a backpack. This makes it easy to carry long distances and even take it to hard to reach areas. You can now eat your meals sitting atop a mountain, or in a boat. The options are as endless as your adventuring spirit.
The backpack is available as either a two person picnic backpack or a four person picnic backpack. This makes it great for a newlywed couple, or a blossoming family. It measures 11 inches long by 7 inches by 13 inches by 16 inches and weighs just 6 pounds with all the items included. It is made from polyester and is very durable and can last through all your adventuring. The backpack comes with padded soft shoulder straps that will be comfortable during your excursions. There are four different color options to choose from.
The backpack comes with a couple essentials for all picnicking excursions. The first is a large blanket. The blanket can be laid out on any ground to make it a clean and sanitary eating surface. The blanket matches the backpack. It measures 45 inches by 52 inches. It is made from a soft pleece with a waterproof PEVA backing so that any moisture and dirt on the ground will be kept from soaking through and ruining the food on top. This will also give you a clean surface to sit on without ruining your clothes.
The backpack itself has many pockets and areas for storage. The main storage area is the back of the backpack. This is a PEVA lined cooler compartment. It is large enough to hold any snacks and small meal items like sandwiches. The cooler compartment will keep the food cool, with the help of cooler packs. It will also help keep moisture from leaking in or out of the compartment and ruining the food or other items in the backpack.
The front of the backpack opens up for all the other picnic items. These items include four of all the following: stainless steel knives, forks, and spoons, 9-inch dinner plates, cotton napkins, and plastic wine glasses. In addition, the backpack also comes with a cutting board, stainless steel cheese, and butter knife, and a bottle opener. The side of the backpack has a removable wine cooler. The other side of the backpack has an attachment for holding the picnic blanket.
Everything is held in place so it will not be jostled around too much while hiking. The compartments are sealed securely using zippers. The addition of a zippered front pocket allows for any personal items to be added such as keys, wallets, or wipes for after the meal. There is plenty of room for everything for a short day out and about with the ones you care most about.
- This is a practical gift that can be used by the whole family.
- It comes in a variety of colors.
- There is plenty of storage space.
- The shoulder straps are padded.
- All the picnic essentials are incldued.
- This is not a personal gift.

Wine is a great gift that can celebrate nearly any occasions. Wine adds a little bit of class to a regular celebration. It is also a great side gift to give along with a set of wine glasses or the cheese cutting board. Giving a bottle of wine may be a practical and well-appreciated gift, but it can sometimes also feel impersonal, especially if the couple is someone close to you. This is where this set of wine labels come in handy. American Art Classics has taken some well-known art classics and turned them into humorous wine labels that can be added to that special couple’s favorite beverages that will provide a laugh along with the wine and make it a little more special.
This set includes eight different labels. They can be used for a gift for one couple, or kept and divided up among multiple gifts. Each label is four by five inches. They are adhesive labels and are designed to fit the standard sized wine bottle. To attach the labels, the backing will need to be peeled off, then they can easily be stuck to the desired bottle of choice.
Since the labels will be on wine, the labels are designed to be waterproof. This will help them last even if some wine drips on the label. The design will still be visible for the entirety of the bottle. This also allows the wine to be refrigerated or put on ice without fear of ruining the labels.
Each of the labels features a vintage styled drawing. The drawing features both men and women, making it suitable for either gender. Along with the vintage drawing is a modern humorous saying related to drinking. The sayings are gender neutral and will be found humorous by both the male and female in the relationship.
- This is a great way to add more uniqueness to a gift of a bottle of wine.
- There are multiple labels that can be used for multiple gifts.
- All the sayings and labels are not specific to one gender.
- The labels are all aimed to those who enjoy adult beverages.

Here is another gift that is a gift of memories. The age old joke among married couple is about the ominous “So, what do you want to do?” question followed by the nonchalant “I don’t know, what do you want to do?” reply. This is an ongoing joke, because it happens all too often and can be relatable to any couple. This gift of date night ideas is a way to break this ritual and add a little uniqueness to the day to day activities, which can open the door for new memories to be made.
This gift is essentially a date night in a box. The box is made from recycled Kraft boxes. It measures just 3.5 inches by 3.5 inches square. It is small enough to fit nicely as a side gift. Inside the box, there are 24 round, wooden tokens. On either side of the token, there is a date idea written, making a total of 48 date ideas. If a couple uses one date a week, the box will nearly take them through the entire year, with a few free weeks left for adventures of their own choosing. The great part is that when the couple completes all the tokens, they can all be put back in the box, with a few of their own additions, and completed again the next year.
All the date ideas are things that can be done on a budget, so that any couple can take advantage of the ideas. Some of the date ideas are seasonal, such as a sledding date following by hot chocolate at home. Other ideas require a time commitment, such as signing up for an obstacle race together and start training together. Others can be done at a moments notice such as playing your favorite childhood game together, or going for a long drive in the country. Other items require a little research such as researching then visiting some favorite places around town. There are over a dozen more great ideas that are both indoors and outdoors, short and long dates, costly and free dates. Each one sure to entertain and bring the couple closer together in the process.

From security checks to those dreaded conveyor belts at the airport, luggage can be thrown, stuffed, stacked, until they are falling apart. This does not even include the beatings luggage receives in the packing process alone. Stuffing suitcases to their max, then sitting on them in order to squeeze the zippers shut is an all too common practice among travelers. This is why luggage falls apart often and becomes a regular investment for frequent flyers. This year, you can allow your favorite traveling couple to have a little more spending money on their trip by buying them new luggage yourself so they won’t have to.
This is a complete luggage set, so that each person in the family has a suitcase. There is also a suitcase suitable for every scenario. The largest suitcase measures 29 inches by 20 inches by 10 inches. It weighs 12.9 pounds. This is for those frequent flyers who are planning longer trips. Most international airlines only allow one checked luggage. In this case, a person would want as large as is allowed in order to make the most of the space. This suitcase is at the max for most airlines that range in size allowance with the maximum allowing falling around 35 inches for many airlines.
For those who rather save on the size and weight, there is a medium suitcase option. It is 25 inches by 18 inches by 9.75 inches. It weighs just 10.2 pounds. This is good for airlines that are a little stricter in their size limitations. It will also work well for those who have less, but heavier items to take with them. The medium suitcase is also a better option for car rides, or other travel means where size is not as big of an issue, so you can bring multiple bags and each bag can be an easier size to manage.
The last bag is 21 inches by 14 inches by 7.5 inches. This bag is perfect for short weekend trips. It also measures a size that is accepted by most airlines as a carry on size. It weighs just 8.6 pounds, making it very easy to manage.
All the bags are made from 100% polyester. Each bag also has four spinner wheels on each corner. The spinner wheels allow for easier mobility. Both the top and the sides of the suitcases each have padded carry handles so the suitcases can easily be lifted from any direction to fit into the appropriate place. A pop out handle makes it easy to transport the suitcases from place to place without having to lift them at all.
The suitcases are available in six different colors. Each suitcase has four different pockets. The main compartment will hold the majority of the items. The lid of the main compartment has a secondary compartment. On the outside of this compartment is a more narrow compartment for smaller items. The smallest pocket is located at the top of the suitcases and is ideal for a wallet or keys, if the suitcase is staying near you. It can house any other small items that will need to be accessed quickly without having to open up an dig through any of the large compartments.

Capturing memories that last is not limited to just taking pictures. There are so many more ways to preserve a moment for forever. One more unique way is to use hand casting. This is a gift you can give a couple that will allow them to remember the special occasion and have it literally written in stone, or at least a hard plaster.
Hand casting in a relatively simple process. You will mix up a cement type of mixture into a bucket. You will then place your hands into the bucket. How you place your hands in the bucket will depend entirely up to you. The casting works best if the two hands are connected and touching in some ways. This is why many couples choose to hold hands for the casting.
You then wait a few minutes for the outer mixture to dry. Most mixtures will turn a white when it is dry, which may take one to two minutes. You then wiggle your hand as you pull it out. A second mixture is then poured into the mold. This second mixture can be made from a wax or some other material. You then allow this second mixture to harden. Once it is hardened, you can break away the molding revealing the perfect statue of your hands forever intertwined. This can then be painted or decorated however you would like.
This hand casting kit by Discovering DIY is a complete hand casting kit with all the materials you will need from start to end. The kit is made for two people, which makes it a perfect gift for all couples. The bucket included is large enough for two hands that are holding, or connected in some way.
The kit includes all the basics. There are large bags of each of the mixtures that are clearly marked with the step number so you know which one to use when. There are also two bags of molding and casting powders. There is also a large bucket for mixing the item in and doing the casting in.
There is also a small sample pack of each so that you can do a small sample mold before doing the real mold in order to make sure you understand the instructions correctly. An instructional video is available with the product to also help you understand the process.
This is one of the only casting kits that also provides all the protective gear necessary. There are two protective masks that can be worn to protect yourselves from breathing in any of the powder. There are also latex-free gloves that can be worn to protect your hands when mixing the materials and doing the mold.
What you do with your mold afterwards is completely up to you. This kit does, however, provide one option for preserving the mold. The kit comes with a paintbrush as well as a bronzing paint and a sealant to preserve your hands even longer.
