It’s always fun to make your spouse or another couple feel special with a great gift.
The problem is it can be tough to find a gift that is both unique and meaningful.
So, I thought it would be fun to assemble a “Top Ten Gifts” list of sorts (and then added more).
Of course, this is an Engaged Marriage list, so the gifts here are a mix of pure fun and those that can enhance your marriage and family life.
Based on my own thoughts, input from my awesome wife, a bit of research on Amazon, and some excellent responses that I received on our social media channels, I have assembled what I feel is a pretty nice list of ideas.
Rather than be a stand-alone list, I hope these ideas get you thinking a bit. I really want to hear from you in the comments section of this post with your own suggestions as well.
Whether you’re looking to feel more confident about being intimate with others in your home, or you’re just looking for a more peaceful night’s sleep, adding a white noise machine to your bedroom can make all the difference in the world. This Marpac machine has over 15,000 positive ratings on Amazon.

This is a simple, yet sweet, way to enhance the communication in your marriage. This gift journal provides fill-in-the-blank prompts that make it easy to share what you love about your spouse.
Weighted blankets are super popular right now – they are calming and soothing while promoting great sleep. If you’re looking to snuggle up to your spouse, adding a large weighted blanket to your bed can be an amazing experience.
There is nothing better than crawling into bed with your spouse under premium, high thread count sheets. These Mellanni sheets are the highest rated on Amazon for good reason!
