The Anatomy of the Perfect Couple’s Gift Basket

couples gift basket couples gift basket couples gift basket couples gift basket couples gift basket
Gifting for anyone can be a tedious task if you’re not properly prepared or if you haven’t known the recipient long enough to know exactly what they would like.  Gifting for couples means double the stress of trying to find the perfect gift, plus the added pressure of combining the gifts in a way that’s not awkward or cheesy.  So what on Earth do you give a couple that fits these requirements?  My personal favorite gift to put together is a gift basket.  Why?  You can put together relatively cheap odds and ends and come up with a perfectly finished product that will make the recipient think that you put a lot of effort (and money) into such a thoughtful gift.  Here is my secret recipe for the perfect couples gift basket:
1.  Something for Her
Start by thinking of her likes and interests.  Let’s say she loves to cook.  In this case, I would start my gift basket by picking out an interesting and aesthetically pleasing cookbook for her portion of the gift basket.
2.  Something for Him
Next, add something that’s particular to his taste.  My go-to for any man is a nice bottle of bourbon.  If he’s not into drinking, you can use cigars, playing cards, or anything manly that is still pleasing to the eye.
3.  Something Edible
Cellophane bags of caramel corn, cookies, caramels, etc., are perfect for making the basket look abundant and sophisticated.  Bars of chocolate are also lovely, just steer clear of “Dollar Candy” such as the typical candy you can find at any Walmart or drug store.
4.  Something for the Home
A nice candle, blanket, bottle opener, mule mugs, or a coffee table book (if books are not already used for a different portion) can add depth to the gift, since home decor or tools can be for both men and women.
5.  Something to Do
To add excitement to the gift, I like to add an activity for the couple to do together, such as a cocktail recipe to create (to go along with those mule mugs), or a cozy date night idea (a reason to use that blanket!)

Lastly, find the perfect basket (I like wire baskets or wooden crates) and fill with paper shreds.  Place each item neatly in the basket, add finishing touches such as a bow and hand-written tag, and Voila…the perfect couple’s gift basket!

 

And of course, being the Number 1 Romance Experts, we have thought of all these wonderful things and put them into one convenient Gift Box just for you. Our Love Gift Box has a Qalo Ring for him, a beautiful rose gold necklace for her, something edible, something for the home, AND something for the couple to do together. You can send this awesome gift box as a Holiday present to your favorite couple here: https://theyesgirls.com/love-gift-box (pssst- it can also double as a gift for your wife guys, so don’t be shy! We will even send it to her office for you so that you get double brownie points with the public display of affection!)

How to Drop a Hint to your Boyfriend that You’re ready to get married

Have you been anxiously awaiting him to pop the question? Patiently (or maybe not so patiently) trying to convince him that you’re ready to get married? Are you subtly dropping hints that it’s time to put a ring on it? Well, those subtle (and not so subtle) hints come in handy in our business and we’ve got ya covered!

Tell Him You're Ready to Get engaged

  1. Wink Wink. We have a system on our website called a “wink wink” where you leave us your boyfriend’s email address and we casually send him a coupon for our services. You’re not attached to the coupon at all, so he has no way of knowing it came from you… it just magically appears in his inbox :)
  2. eBook. Our team of romance experts have put together an online, easy to download eBook that’s just $19. It’s been a top seller on our website for years now, and we recently took some time to do a little “revamping” of the book. So it’s packed with great “idea sparks”, location ideas, and even tips of the proposal-secret-keeping-masters! You can download this eBook and casually leave it laying around at your place. Or, if you’re looking for a little less subtle approach, you can even download it straight to his computer!
  3. Pinterest. It’s the wedding-day-dreamer’s haven and we are on it! We have hundreds of pins from previous proposals, and even some great tips on how to pop the question. So Pin away and then make sure your boyfriend knows your username! You can have a friend or your sister show him how to find you on Pinterest (then make sure your “proposal board” and “wedding board” aren’t set to private so that we can sneakily see what you’re wanting for your big day)!
  4. Instagram. This one is a shoo-in. Sneakily grab your boyfriend’s phone and open his insta account, then follow us for him! Then next time he goes for a little scroll down his home-feed he will see all the romantic ideas we post about daily. And he will never even know it was your doing :)

A Boudoir Session

A.K.A. a man’s best friend.  This gift is really a two-per, considering she gets a day of pampering and feeling like a super model, and he gets a picture book of his smoking hot wife-to-be!  You can’t go wrong!

Beach Honeymoon Essentials

As if packing for vacation isn’t hard enough, throw planning a wedding on top of it and add the stress of making sure your honeymoon goes perfect and you’ve got yourself a full blown meltdown.  Your honeymoon isn’t just another vacation, however- it’s the first vacation you’ll take as husband and wife… the first of a lifetime of memories.  You’ll want it to be perfect in every way, and the only way to ensure that is to make sure you pack all the essentials.  Nothing ruins a vacation more than getting to the beach and realizing you forgot your favorite sunglasses, or losing your luggage at baggage claim because every suitcase looks exactly alike.

We know what you’re thinking, who really has time to shop for every single essential and wedding planning?  We’re way ahead of you!  Say hello to our “Happy Honeymoon” Gift Box.  Each box contains several honeymoon essentials- for men and women.  While gifts vary from box to box, you can be sure you’ll get the cutest Yes Girl approved honeymoon necessities, such as a wet bikini bag, newlywed luggage tags, and a silicon QALO ring for your man (because even on the beach, he’ll want to show off his new status!) The best part- buying these products in the honeymoon box actually saves you money.  Each box contains products worth over $100.  That means you’re getting each product for at least half off…you can’t beat that deal!  So save yourself the headache (and the money,) and check out the “Happy Honeymoon” Gift Box.
