The holidays are our favorite time of the year and one of the things we love the most about it is coming up with cute gifts to give to each other. One of the most memorable gifts we’ve given to each other was during our very first Christmas together. You can read more about that story in our comic here.
So we thought we’d share some of our favorite holiday gift ideas with you in case you were in need of some inspiration for your crush or significant other. 😊
Both Chia and I love listening to music and when we first started dating, we would share our favorite songs with one another. Somehow, we both ended up with the same idea to gift each other a USB of our favorite songs that reminded us of the other person along with a cute note inside the bottle. In addition to the USB, I also created a Spotify playlist of all the songs to give to Chia so she could listen to it more easily.
This was one of my favorite gifts from Chia. Given her creative talent, she took a blank booklet and recreated all of our favorite inside jokes using cute drawings and puns. It was incredibly thoughtful and funny. I still look through this book whenever I need a quick laugh or pick-me-up.
3. A new experience together
Sometimes the best gift is not a physical gift but the gift of a new experience together. Whether it’s surprising each other with concert tickets to see our favorite LGBTQ singer, a comedy show to support our favorite comedian, or a baby goat farm tour, I love gifting Chia with a new experience that we can share and enjoy together. I typically have an idea in mind of what experience I think would be cool to surprise Chia with, but if you need inspiration, you can always look at sites like Gold Star, Stubhub, Eventbrite, Thrillist, etc.
4. A vacation to a place we’ve never been
Chia and I both love traveling so for one of the holidays, I gifted her a mini vacation to Hawaii since we’ve never been there together. Note that this doesn’t have to be a long or expensive trip (check out some of my travel hacks here) and even a short weekend trip to a nearby city can be a nice getaway and gift. In terms of gifting the other person a vacation, you don’t have to have the dates finalized yet or have the tickets booked, but instead make a cute little letter or invite on a card and then work together to finalize the details.
You can’t go wrong with a more practical gift that the other person can use in their day-to-day life. One of the gifts that Chia gave me was this hoodie that I love wearing on cold winter days when we’re lounging around at home or watching a movie.
Whenever the end of the year approaches, we get inspired to reflect and think about our goals for the new year. I love decorating my work space with inspirational things so Chia got me a cute cinema light box that I can customize with different motivational quotes to inspire me when I’m working.
Chia knows that I often have a bunch of ideas in my head but I’m not very good at writing them down so she decided to get me a passion planner for me to keep track of all of my ideas and to-dos in a nice, organized fashion.
