Pink Crystal Diamond 3Sometimes it can be hard to think of great gifts to buy for your significant other.

Year after year you try to look for that perfect gift, that gift that will show your loved one how much you truly love them. Or at least a gift that won’t leave them completely disappointed.

Well if you need some inspiration to help pique your creativity a bit, here are a few ideas for you. Here are the top 5 gifts for your significant other:

1. Jewelry

I couldn’t create a list of great gift ideas without including jewelry. Yes, jewelry seems like that typical cliche gift that people think of when they’re thinking of gift ideas. But that is because it really is the perfect gift! Everyone loves jewelry: men, women, young old; it doesn’t matter, we all get excited to open that little box that is presented to us.

If you have the budget to purchase jewelry for your significant other the next time you are looking for the perfect gift for them, don’t hesitate. As long as you pick something that matches their personal style, they will love jewelry, I guarantee it.

2. Couples Massage

Are you looking for an extremely romantic gift idea but you don’t have the funds to buy jewelry for your loved one? Get them a gift certificate for a couples massage.

Whether you are purchasing this gift for a man or a woman, they will love the romantic experience of getting a massage together. This will help you to bond, while enjoying a relaxing experience together.

Everyone loves to be pampered, so why not share a pampering, calming massage the next time you are looking for a gift for your loved one?

3. Gift Basket

Gift baskets or gift hampers are another great gift idea for your favorite person. This is a great way to show them how well you know them: choose a nice basket or another type of container and fill it with all of your loved one’s favorite things.

Even if your creative juices aren’t freely flowing at the moment and you can’t think of very personal things to fill the basket with, you can find websites online that specialize in creating gift baskets.

For women they can be filled with aromatherapy lotions, bubble baths and candles, flowers, candy, etc etc. Gift baskets are also a great idea for men. Men’s gift baskets can include items like magazines, shaving accessories, and of course all mens’ favorite thing: food!

Gift baskets are a great way to be able to give your significant other more than one gift and really help them to feel special and loved.

4. Scrapbook

If you really want to show that special someone just how special they really are to you, you might want to consider making them a scrapbook. Include all of the pictures and other memorabilia of many of your favorite experiences together.

Or you can create a scrapbook off of just one special experience together, like your wedding, honeymoon, recent cruise, first year together, etc. Not only will they love the time that you’ve spent putting together this scrapbook for them, but this will be something that they will cherish for years.

Added bonus: this is an extremely inexpensive gift idea, so it’s great for those times in your life when you are strapped for cash. This one doesn’t cost very much at all, but it has a great impact.

5. Something Practical

Lastly, never count out the idea of giving your loved one something practical for a gift. Sure, many people say that you should never give a practical gift to your significant other.A new vacuum, a set of pots and pans, a gym membership, a tie, even new socks or underwear.

When you hear these gift ideas you may cringe. But you are the one that knows your spouse/fiance/boyfriend/girlfriend/etc best. So if there is something that you know they need and would enjoy, don’t hesitate to buy it for them as a gift!
