To Us, from Us—A Holiday Gift Guide for Couples

A couple having a lovely time in the kitchen

Did you know that, on average, married and cohabitating couples spend only two to four waking hours together per day? To make the most of those hours together—plus the eight or so you spend asleep—we have put together a fun (but arguably very practical) holiday gift guide for couples. So, instead of spending hours looking for gifts for each other, we encourage you to join forces and go in on that one amazing item that you can both enjoy for years to come.

Christmas shopping without stepping foot in the mall? Consider your wish granted.

For the Couple That Dreams Together
Investing in a good bed is one of the best decisions that you can make as a couple, and one of the best gifts that you can give each other. Most people will agree that there is nothing more important than a good night’s sleep and, for many couples, it can be extra-challenging to get the recommended number of winks when sharing a bed, especially when one partner is a light sleeper and the other repositions themselves all night.

If this sounds like you and your partner, or you just want to reduce tossing and turning in general, switching to a memory foam or hybrid mattress that reduces motion transfer might be the answer. In addition to cradling the body comfortably and securely, and minimizing the need to reposition, memory foam lacks the “bounce” of traditional mattresses and leaves the other partner virtually undisturbed when there’s movement in the bed.
To help choose the perfect mattress for two, we highly recommend a sleep assessment with one of our dream experts. Book yours today!

If you have the room, upgrading from a queen to a king is a decision that you won’t regret, and even more so if you have littles that end up in your bed on the regular. A king mattress is only 16 inches wider than a queen, but that can make a huge difference for people who love their partner, but also LOVE their personal space. And who says you can’t still cuddle? For those with a smaller space who think they don’t have the room for a larger bed, read “The Bedroom of Their Dreams” to see how blogger Stacey Kasdorf reconfigured the space in her small master bedroom to accommodate a king.

For the Couple That Cooks Together
Is it weird to get really, really excited about a refrigerator? Not when it has cool features, like this 23 cubic foot French door model from LG with InstaView Door-in-Door, double freezers, and a built-in craft ice maker that produces its own slow-melting round ice cubes. (Yes, you read that right. Craft ice.) The way we see it, if you’re going to upgrade your fridge this winter, it might as well be one that lets you have a little fun. (Did we mention the craft ice?)

More meals in means more opportunities to cook together! It doesn’t matter who is the chef and who’s the sous chef, you’ll look and feel like professionals cooking on this Frigidaire professional gas range with flexible five-burner cooktop and true convection oven. There’s even a built-in air fryer for perfect, restaurant-quality French fries and chicken wings whenever you get the craving!

For the Couple Who Spends Quality Time Together
Remember when we said couples spend an average of 2–4 hours together per day? Well, guess where they’re spending half of that time. If you said “in front of the TV” you’d be right! Watching TV together is, for most couples, the perfect way to end the day or spend a lazy Sunday afternoon. If that describes you, why not update your tech and treat each other to a new smart set, like this Samsung 50 inch with QLED 4K technology. With Samsung’s finest picture ever, it will make you want to spend even more time watching together.

To take your Netflix-and-napping to the next level, replace your old sofa with the versatile Dexter Media Sleeper. It’s the perfect size for cuddling and pulls out into a full sleeper for serious movie marathons (and overnight guests). Not only is it comfy, it’s filled with convenient features like built-in USB chargers and a hidden storage compartment for throws and extra pillows.

If, like us, you’ve been taking advantage of your local wine merchants’ delivery services, it’s the perfect time to gift yourselves a temperature-controlled cooler to store all of that vino. This 4.4 cubic foot Frigidaire wine cooler has room for 38 bottles and keeps wine at the perfect serving temperature in two electronically controlled temperature zones. It’s simple design and natural stained wood shelves make it a stylish choice for the den or media room.
