7. If They're A Bookworm, Then Gift Them A Bookmark!
Okay, now we know what you're thinking. Gift a book and a bookmark? Well, if you know a true bookworm, then you know it's best not to give them a book unless you're well aware of what genre they prefer reading.

9. A Nykaa/Amazon Gift Card
Look, if you're very confused about what kind of makeup your partner likes, or what skincare is good for them, then the safest way to deal with it by giving them a gift card.

How can we ever forget to mention a grooming kit for men? If your partner enjoys the 'art of growing and grooming his beard' then this one's definitely for you! Grooming kits are a great gift, which fit perfectly with your partner's exact need.
12. Bath Salts
Bath salts are your first step towards a great spa day. Now, these are great as gifts, but you must know that they should only be given to someone who has a bathtub or might be going to vacation at a spot where these bath salts can be used. So, we know it's selective gifting, but make sure all the necessary boxes are checked before you give someone this gift.
13. Gift Them A Memory Mapper

Newlyweds, hear us out on this one! Memory Mappers are small frames that encompass a location that is significant to your relationship. It can be the spot you got married, or first kissed, or even the spot where you proposed. The website takes the map location of that spots, adds a message to it and frames it for you. How utterly romantic is that?
14. If They're Fond Of Cooking
In every relationship, there is at least ONE person fond of cooking. And that person will always be online, looking for new tools or gadgets for their kitchen. But if you're unsure what your kitchen friendly partner needs/want, then giving them a knife set is the best way to please them. It not only shows that you appreciate the interest, but it also enables them to feel reassured that you also take interest in their hobbies. So, show some supportive love with gifts like these.

In most relationships, there has to be one person who loves a good mimosa on a Sunday afternoon. For that partner, who enjoys creating a bar and making drinks for their friends, family and themselves, then a bar set is definitely something to give. From cocktail makers and shakers to wine and sangria glasses to whiskey glasses and hip flasks, the choices are endless.
15. And If Nothing Else Works...
Get a bouquet of roses, some gourmet chocolates and write them a handwritten love letter. Honestly, the art of letter giving is slowly being forgotten. But we're the kinds who believe in this notion of old fashion love. Trust us, if that soulful, romantic love letter doesn't bring them to tears, nothing else will!
