8 Clever Just Because Gifts for Couples
on the Go
There are so many different faces of romance, all of which are excited to express to the love of your life. Sure, travel takes up a large part of it, but there are plenty of other ways to treat your significant other while you’re traveling all over the world. Whether it’s cooking up a meal together, cuddling up for a movie night, or going through the memory book of your past weekend getaways, there are so many ways to dial into your relationship and celebrate the bond you’ve created together.
At the end of every day, you fall asleep more grateful for your partner than the day before, and what better way to show your love and appreciation for them than with a sweet just because of gift. No need for a birthday, Valentine’s Day, or other gift-giving holidays, these 8 gifts are awesome options for any regular day where you’re feeling extra thankful.
1. A record player
For the music lover who’s always got a song stuck in their head or a playlist queued up for chores around the house, drives to work, or in-shower concerts, a turntable record player is an excellent way to connect them to their favorite hits. There are plenty of portable options, but these gifts are also perfect for the couple that likes to return home to something special. Experts say that vinyl sound quality is eons better than digital quality as zero audio data is lost. Essentially, a record player is the gateway device to hear music the same way it was initially produced to sound.
2. A good book
Is your lover a bookworm? If the way to their heart is through some good old-fashioned storytelling, an interesting book will go a long way. Regardless of whether they’re into poetry, political biographies, or graphic novels, there are always so many exciting new titles out there waiting for a new set of eager eyes.

- Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James
3. A weighted blanket
Known for alleviating stress and the symptoms of depression and anxiety, weighted blankets are an amazing gift for anyone struggling with their emotions. The added pressure of a weighted blanket increases the release of serotonin in the brain, causing the “happy” chemicals to free flow and create a sense of calm. They’re comfortable, soft, warm, and have plenty of other attractive benefits your partner is sure to love. If you travel a lot, it’s so inviting having a warm bed and a weighted blanket waiting for you back home.
4. An Airbnb stay
We couldn’t resist adding in something travel-related, even if this is more of a little staycation. An Airbnb stay is the ultimate way to get away from home without actually being far from home at all. Choose an Airbnb with luxurious amenities like a hot tub or on-site sauna to make the trip double as a spa getaway.
5. A potted plant
Flowers are pretty and picturesque, but they only last for so long. A potted plant is sure to last for years with proper upkeep and care, and for someone with a green thumb, a new plant is plenty of reason to rejoice. Even if your partner is rather graceless when it comes to greenery, these low-maintenance plants will be incredibly easy to keep alive:
- Chinese Evergreen
- Fiddle Leaf Fig
- Asparagus Fern
- English Ivy
6. A keychain
Keeping your nod of appreciation short and sweet with a keychain is a great way to let your partner take a piece of your affection with them wherever they go. Whether it’s a cute miniature puppy that reminds them of their childhood hound or a monogrammed tag, make sure the keychain you pick is something special.
7. A tea infuser
A tea infuser is a thoughtful gift for the lover of all things related to tea. If your lover is picky, choosing a loose-leaf tea that they’re sure to love can be pretty difficult. Rather than subjecting yourself to the stress of pinning down the perfect tea, opt for a fun tea infuser. Outside of the typical metal mesh infuser exists a spectrum of alternatives that come in cute animal shapes that are sure to bring a smile to your partner’s face.
8. A mug
There’s no such thing as too many mugs. Even if your partner’s cupboards are overflowing with perfectly good mugs, one that comes from you is bound to be their go-to choice for their morning cup of joe. Choose a mug that speaks to their vibrancy and light—whether it’s a fun-colored mug or one with a thoughtful message on it, the right mug will jump out at you.
