2. For the techie couple: Amazon Echo Show
Smart assistants are still as popular as ever, but some seriously take up too much counter space. The Echo Show 5 provides a compact design with the bonus of a screen. It’s basically a smaller version of the full Show and the next level up from the Dot. The small screen makes it easy to see timers, get news updates, and make video calls, so you can chat “face-to-face” with your giftee.
Get the Amazon Echo Show 5 from Amazon for $84.99
3. For the plant parents: The Sill
If the couple has a green thumb (or wants to get started gardening), this is the gift for them. While you could give them a single pot, a subscription to The Sill will help them enjoy their greenery year-round. One of our editors tried the popular plant delivery service and says not only did her plant of choice arrive in great condition, but it’s still happily thriving.
Get live plants from The Sill starting at $18
4. For the true crime junkies: Hunt A Killer
You can spice up monthly date nights with the help of Hunt A Killer, an interactive murder mystery subscription box. We tested out Hunt A Killer ourselves and quickly became obsessed with solving the (fictional) cold case murder. Each month, you’ll get a collection of evidence to sort through, as well as an objective, and as the “season” progresses, you’ll be able to put together the clues, unraveling what happened and bringing a killer to justice. It’s a great couple’s activity and sure to be a hit.

5. For the couple who prefer Friday nights in: Gravity Weighted Blanket
One of the hottest gifts of 2021, weighted blankets are certainly having a moment. If your couple friends like to spend their free time snuggling on the couch (or even better, sleeping), they’ll love the Gravity Blanket. It’s our top weighted blanket because it provides just the right amount of pressure and is super soft and plush to the touch.
Get the Gravity Blanket from Gravity for $146.25
6. For the couple who are homeowners: iRobot Roomba
Home might be where the heart is, but it’s also where the clean floors are (or should be). People love robot vacuums because they do your cleaning for you and make life a lot easier—which we could all use this year especially. Our experts put some of the most popular ones to the test and found the Roomba i7+ to be the best thanks to its self-emptying dock along with its smart mapping technology.
Get the iRobot Roomba i7+ Robot Vacuum from Amazon for $524.32

Neither of them can operate without their morning cup of joe—and they won’t have to ever again if you gift them the Moccamaster. Not only will it look sleek and stylish sitting on their counter, but it’s also the best drip coffee maker out there, brewing the most flavorful and full-bodied pot of coffee among all the coffee makers we tested (and at a fast speed that’s ideal for busy mornings!).

You might not be able to give your friends a five-star spa experience, but you can give them the next best thing: a matching pair of everyone’s favorite bath robes.

They’ve spent hours curating the perfect Spotify playlists—now this couple just needs a good way to listen to them.

We tried Harry & David and found that its gift baskets were chock-full of delicious foods that would make any person smile. We were partial to the Moose Munch and chocolate-covered pretzels, but if they love fresh fruit, you can’t get better than the classic Harry & David pears.

14. For the couple who never spend a night apart: Tuft & Needle
Everyone who’s ever spent the night with an S.O. knows the value of a good mattress—so it makes for a very appreciated gift.
