As the saying goes — sharing is caring, which rings true for gifts a couple can enjoy together. Joint-gifting can also make buying for difficult-to-shop-for couples less stressful. If you know one person in the couple better but don't want to leave anyone out, spending a little more on one gift they can both appreciate rather than trying to find two individual gifts is a win-win for everyone.

From practical gifts, like a must-have herb garden, to gifts that are purely for joy, like a cozy blanket, here are the perfect presents for the couples you love.

If there's something cuter than matching holiday mugs, we haven't found it yet. Sweeten their first Christmas together (and treat them to an ultra-cozy night-in) by surprising them with two adorable mugs and some hot cocoa mix.
