2020 Parents & Couples Gift Guide

Happy Monday, friends! I’m excited to share today’s gift guide, the Parents & Couples gift guide because it’s so fun. Honestly, I would be beyond thrilled if anyone gifted these to Rob and I 🙂 these are great gifts for the couples in your life, especially parents who will love some of these cute, sentimental gifts!

  1. Compact Swivel Cheese & Tapas Board
    This cheese board does it all! I love that it has multiple pinch bowls and comes with cheese knives. This would be a perfect gift for the couple that loves a wine and cheese night! 
  2. Rifle Paper Co. Weekly Meal Planner
    Selfishly, I wish someone would buy this for ME because I love making our dinner menu each week. This is such a cute planner pad and saves you from the dreaded question of “what’s for dinner???”  
  3. Digital Photo Frame
    This would be such a great idea for grandparents or parents who you haven’t seen in a while. You could load pictures on it for them, so it’d be a nice little surprise 😉 it’s also nice because you don’t have to worry about printing photos and can change them out as often as you like! 
  4. Stainless Steel Cocktail Stirrer Spoon Gold
    My parents have adopted a quarantine hobby of bartending, and although their home bar setup rivals some actual bars I’ve been to, this would make a great gift for the novice bartender! I love the gold accents and would love to add it to my bar cart for a touch of classic elegance. Pair this with a bottle of spirits and some mixers and you’ve got a great gift for the home bartender!  
  5. Crosley Voyager Turntable
    This would make a great gift for parents! Pick this up and a few of their favorite albums on vinyl and you’ve got yourself a great gift. My parents actually got me a turntable for Christmas a few years ago, and it’s such a nice thing to have when entertaining or having the aforementioned wine and cheese night.  
  6. Ridley’s 1000-Piece Donut Lovers Jigsaw Puzzle
    Puzzles are one of the great quarantine past times, and I especially love these fun illustration ones that you could literally frame and hang in your home as art. Personally, I’m a huge donut fan and would LOVE to have this hanging in my house!  
  7. “Eight Dates: Essential Conversations for a Lifetime of Love” by John Gottman and Julie Schwartz Gottman
    This book is essential for any couple! Rob and I worked our way through it earlier this year and it has been a game-changer in how we communicate. Each chapter is a date with a specific discussion topic. This is also a great book to read now, when we’re all spending time at home with our partners and might need more help keeping that spark up amongst the mundane of day-to-day life in a freakin’ pandemic 🙂 
  8. KitchenAid Black Matte K400 Variable Speed Blender
    Hi, if you’re reading this and looking for a gift for me, look no further 😉 every home needs a good blender. We make a lot of smoothies, soups, cashew cheese, and blended coffee over here, and this blender can do it all! I also feel like a new blender is something a couple would rarely buy for themselves unless absolutely necessary, but this would make such a thoughtful gift! 
  9. Outdoor Beer Table
    My parents live on a few acres and love being outside, especially during the summer. During this past summer, we went over for a few socially distant gatherings and one of our favorite things to do as a family is play cornhole! As I mentioned, my parents also love mixing cocktails and have been known to enjoy a craft beer or two, so this would make a perfect gift for them!  
  10. The Anniversary Journal
    Had to finish on a sappy note 🙂 this is such a cute journal for the couple in your life to document all of life and love’s special moments. I love the idea of completing this as a couple and creating new memories in the process! 


I hope you guys enjoy these ideas for gifts for the couples in your life – parents, grandparents, in-laws, or even engaged or married friends. I think this might be my favorite gift guide because they’re all creative and fun ideas.
