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 robot vacuum, to gifts that are purely for joy, like a cozy blanket, here are the perfect presents for the couples you love.

An ice cream maker is one of those appliances you probably don't list on a registry, but once you have one you realize how usesful it is. This compact machine from Cuisinart can do sorbets and frozen yogurt, too. And for the health buffs, you can even turn frozen bananas into ice cream.

For the foodies or the couple who just loves to try new things, an online cooking class from Sur La Table is a great gift for under $30. And there are tons of courses, from Italian dinners to French pastries.

Bokksu is one of our favorite LGBTQ+ brands to shop and there are so many food boxes that would make a fun date night for couples, from a rainbow ramen noodle set to this classic Japanese snack box.

For the music buffs, this DIY music box is a fun activity that becomes a personalized souvenir. You could gift the box unopened for the couple to create a song together or if you know a song that's significant to them, make the song yourself and then wrap it with sheet music.

Another great housewarming present is a house plant! It's way more sustainable than a cut flower bouquet and plants such as the Snake Plant improve a home's air quality. We love The Sill because they have a collection of pet-safe plants and the selection of pots and planters can't be beat. Gift cards start at $25.

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.

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. You can score a classic napkin set for under $30 or a sheet set for under $150!
