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 more classic than matching monogram mugs, we haven't found it yet. It's perfect for a housewarming party, wedding shower, the holidays or anytime you need a go-to gift for couples.

For the couple who loves their rescue pup almost as much as they love each other, try this doggy DNA kit.

Pickleball is growing in popularity, and, like tennis, it's a game couples of all ages can play and continue to play through the years.

Recess is a direct-to-consumer brand serving up chic pickleball equipment featuring fun graphic patterns and colors that make our design-loving hearts happy. Start them off with this set that includes two pickleball paddles, one pickleball and one courtbag, and they can expand their equipment as they inevitably get more and more obsessed with the game.

Plus, customers love that this oven is much more portable and inexpensive than traditional full-sized outdoor pizza ovens.

If their favorite date nights involve fire pits and s'mores, then spoil them with a Solo Stove Bonfire. Holes around the top and bottom of the steel chamber help fires burn more efficiently (and eliminate most smoke), so they can do more of what they love. It's definitely a hit with our editors.

Actual linens are a timeless luxury, and linen napkins or sheets are always a great gift for weddings, showers or the holidays. And linen is expensive, so it's always a much-appreciated gift. But here's a savvy way to score linen for less: Quince is shaking up the textiles world but cutting out the middle man and offering direct-to-consumer prices on materials like linen, silk and cashmere that typically have a very high retailer markup.
