On my holiday shopping list my husband is sometimes my biggest question mark. Granted, he's the person I know the best, but in the flurry of holiday preparation and getting gifts for everyone else, I'm at a loss for what he needs, what he wants, or what's the thing that he doesn't know he needs or wants. And, he's usually in the same boat (hi, Louis!). So, to help the couples out there who have been together for a long time, or a short time, and have run out of ideas for what to get each other, this roundup is for you. I've broken down the best gifts for him, for her, and the gifts that you can both use and appreciate together.

From an easy-to-setup fire pit for the backyard to a handy phone sanitizer and charger, from a hair repair treatment to a set of personalized stationery, from a fogless mirror for in-shower shaving to a box of whisky-infused macarons, you'll both find these gifts hard to resist. You may also find that these items are great for Secret Santas, host gifts, stocking stuffers, or if you're buying a gift for a couple specifically. Whether you're looking for something practical, luxe, thoughtful, or useful, you'll get it here.

So keep on reading till the end for the best gifts for the couple who just don't know what to get each other. And you better start adding to cart, because Christmas is almost here.
