Buying a gift for your significant other is fun, exciting and definitely nerve-wracking. When you need to find something for your anniversary, it may be a bit challenging, but you definitely want to show your love for the other person. Jewish couples are lucky today because we made the perfect list of gift ideas for you!
The present needs to be personal and it needs to show that you know and respect the other person. Some couples opt for something romantic; others choose practical gifts and there are people who buy presents to remind the other person of an important date or event. You cannot go wrong with any of the gifts, but you need to think of what your partner would like.
The same goes if you are going to a wedding or another celebration. Buying a gift for a couple may be more challenging than buying a present for one person only. You need to think about both people and you need to find something they will both like. Here we are going to talk about presents you can give to your significant other or gifts you may give to a Jewish couple. Find something you really like and remember that it is the thought that counts.

You can go as creative as you want with this gift. The most popular one you can find in the stores is a print that reads “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine.” It is written in both Hebrew and English and the gift comes in several different sizes.

9. Make a donation
This is something that more and more couples prefer. You probably know that writing checks in multiplies of $18 (corresponding to the numerical value of the Hebrew word for life, or chai) are customary in Jewish circles.
So, you can make a donation in the couple’s honor and you can ask them about their charity preferences. This is a thoughtful gift that they will really cherish it.
Is there something that caught your eye? What would you add to this list? At the end of the day, it is important to find something the other person will cherish. These presents are amazing because you don’t need a huge budget for them, and if you want to give them something extra you can combine a few of these.
Get something that will show the other person or the couple that you respect and love them. The gift does not need to be expensive to show how much you care. Remember to have fun and to enjoy your time at the celebration.
