Gifted with love: From bespoke fragrances to a two-night Paris trip, eight of the most romantic presents you can give this Christmas
While it’s lovely to receive a designer handbag or a piece of jewellery at Christmas, the most romantic gifts are more about the thought behind the item and less about the price tag.
Show that your relationship’s key milestones like the date you met or the date you did something special mean as much to you as they do to your partner with a thoughtful gift that may make them cry. Happy tears, of course!
We’ve rounded up eight romantic gift ideas that celebrate experiences you’ve had together and help you to make some more special memories.
Heart Shape Chocolate Fondue Kit, £7.99
A heart shaped fondue set will be the perfect excuse to cancel all plans and have a romantic couple’s night in.
This affordable gift will strengthen the love you have for each other as chocolate contains two chemicals that have aphrodisiac properties. Tryptophan is a building block of serotonin, a brain chemical involved in sexual arousal while phenylethylamine is released in the brain when people fall in love.
Start off by dipping strawberries, marshmallows and biscuits into the runny chocolate then get creative.

You can choose from our range of nine striking background colours from simple black or white to dark purple or pastel pink and then add a grid system or a constellation chart. You can also add customised text for an even more personal touch.

Couples that chill together stay together and these personalised bath robes are a way to relax in style.
Made from 100 per cent high thread count cotton, the women’s robe is white with Mrs written in gold on the left chest and the men’s robe has Mr in gold in the same place.
These are perfect for long lazy mornings, breakfast in bed when you’ve just shared a lovely long soak together. However, you may find they’re so comfortable that you’ll want to shed your clothes the moment you get in the house and wear robes all the time.

Cuddles In The Kitchen Neon Light, £345
A good cuddle is one of the best means of physical affection and intimacy. It’s also scientifically proven to be good for us, releasing the hormone oxytocin, which boosts our mood and aids the immune system.
As this bright white neon light broadcasts out Cuddles In The Kitchen, you’ll be prompted to have a cheeky squeeze which will in turn bring you closer together.
If you’ve just had an argument or the other person’s done something to annoy you, it’s a great way of reigniting the bond you share.
