Bracelets of Platinum, diamond or gold will be expensive but would be a memorable present for your partner.
3. Tickets to their dream destination
We all fantasise of travelling to some specific place at least once in our life. And I am sure your partner would have told you about any such fantasy. If not then try asking them indirectly about it. There must be a dream destination for your partner too.
It is a great chance to gift them a trip to their dream place. This will surely make them happy as well as the tour will keep the warmth of romance between you both, alive for long.
And also, there will be one more memory to sit together and think about, when you grow old.
4. A date
Dates are never outdated if you know how to plan and execute them. Plan a beautiful date for your hubby or wifey as a Karwa Chauth gift. Maybe a candlelight dinner, movie and shopping or perhaps a night stay at some resort. Add a bit of newness between what you usually do and what they expect you to do. This will keep the lamp of romance lit forever.
5. Handmade goodies of love
This is a perfect gift idea that is usually loved by everyone. Handmade gifts make your partner feel your efforts and love for them. Handmade gift with handwritten love notes has the power to turn the romance on between you two. Go crafty, decorative or make a card with love or arrange a bouquet yourself. Think about anything you can make well. That can be their favourite dish too.
It’s easy to buy something, wrap it nicely and gift it. But handmade gifts are always overwhelming. They make your partner see the purity of your love and efforts you made for them to see them happy.
Fragrances are one of the most beautiful and evergreen gifts in a romantic relationship. Let them smell like your love for them. Perfumes are always helpful in decorating one’s life with romance and love. They encourage that beautiful feeling of affection and sensuality at the same time. Available in abundance of varieties, perfumes for men and women have transformed into many fancy flavours. If they like it light, go for a soothing, subtle and light one. If they want it strong, go for a strong scent.
The best thing about perfumes is that even if you’re apart, that fragrance will always remind them of you.
7. A Hamper of necessities
There are many things we often need and wish to buy but either we forget or we avoid it for the time being.
Maybe a new Kitchen Apron, a lip crayon sharpener, a plucker, a purse, a new hairdryer or anything like that for your lady.
Or a new wallet, belt, matching tie for the new shirt, office bag etc. for your man.

And do attach a bit handwritten note of love for a bigger smile on their face. You can hide the separate gifts at different places at your home and ask your partner to find them.
