4. Gift An Experience

The beauty of this next gift idea for your significant other is that there’s so many choices to decide upon.

This is an ideal present if your partner already has everything and they keep throwing out the dreaded “I don’t need anything” comment when it comes to ideas for their wish-list.

5. Escape Room In An Envelope

Not everyone enjoys experience days and much prefers a chilled time at home, and that’s okay!

Our next couple gift idea is an Escape Room In An Envelope, yep, you can experience all the thrills of a breakout without having to leave the cosy indoors.

With this personalised puzzle gift from Not On The High Street you can personalise a games box for your partner to put their skills to the test to try and escape.

Once they finish all the puzzles, they can reveal the secret letter that you’ve written for them!

This is a top-gifting idea if you’re looking for something different to give your significant other – we’re sure they won’t have tried this before.

Plus, if you’re looking for a less pricier option, this present is a lot more affordable than an actual escape room.
