2. An Airbnb credit is so much more than a gift card…it’s adventure and memories.

Airbnb Gift Card – $48.48 ($50 value at Sam’s Club

Okay, so we know gift cards are basically cash, but here us out. One thing we learned when asking couples about the best gifts they’ve ever received, is that their most treasured are the memories they make when traveling. Couples especially value experiences over things so one of the best gifts you could give them is an Airbnb gift card so they can get away and enjoy time together. Bonus points if they have kids and you can offer child care too! Lucky for you, you can easily get more bang for your buck by scored discounted gift cards at Raise.com.

Hip Tip: Consider an RV rental if your couple loves to camp.

3. A mini massage gun if a gift couples will love traveling with and using daily.

As a bonus, it comes with a compact travel case so they can easily take it with them when they hit the road.

An experience gift – Potentially FREE!

Some of the very best gifts are experiences money can’t buy so if our other mentioned experiences didn’t do it for you, consider a few more experience ideas! It’s already obvious many people are huge fans of experiences over gifts and it doesn’t necessarily have to cost money either! There are many things you could offer any couple like tickets to a free concert they may not know about or itinerary to a new hike they’d really enjoy.

You could also buy your experience and consider fun ideas like wine tasting, a hot air balloon ride, a gift card to their favorite restaurant, a couples massage, and more! Search your local area on Groupon for fun things to save on!

Here’s another idea our Hip sidekick Soleil shared:

people Watching a movie in the theater

“Anthony and I are AMC Stubs A-List Members. We love movies but it also encourages us to see movies we wouldn’t have spent the money to see because you get 3 movie tickets per week. I think it would be a great gift! Requires a subscription (we pay about $24 a month each) but I think it beats the going rate for a ticket, plus you earn rewards that take $$$ off of snacks and meals. We always book the theatre with reclining chairs and meal delivery – new parents feelin’ extra fancy.” – Soleil, Hip sidekick
