Gifts From The Chaperone

Feb 4, 2008
Sometimes, you find yourself tagging along with your best friend on their dates with his or her sweetheart. It can be a pain sometimes. But in a lot of ways, you have a give-and-take friendship that you have there with your best bud. You are there for him or her and he or she's there for you. So one question pops up - when exactly can he or she help you when he or she's all-over his or her honey? To put it bluntly, having a best friend with a significant other can help save you a lot of dough, especially during Christmas season. It gives you an advantage when you have many people to give presents to. And for that, you owe a lot to your friend.

Giving Christmas gifts, along with the planning and budgeting is a tedious task. So if your friend's main squeeze is your good friend, too, then you are a lucky one. Give the couple a single present this Holiday season. It could seem like a wedding gift so make sure you put a little reminder about Christmas. Besides that you can save a lot from it, you have just given them one of their first conjugal properties.

1. You can pick a good and sturdy picture frame in a beautiful design for the couple. You may also place there a picture that you took. It will serve as a reminder of that beautiful moment captured forever and also a nice decoration around the house.

2. A blank photo album wherein they can keep their memories together is also a great gift idea. Go for big albums to ensure maximum capacity. If you think that they are one spontaneous couple, an album that comes in bright colors is a nice pick. Neutral colors are great for storing classical, black-and-white and candid pictures.

3. For couples who are sports fan, getting them matching t-shirts of their favorite team or a tennis racket is also a good gift to give. That way they are much more excited to do something together like watch a game or play the game.

4. You may give them a nice piece of artwork that you did yourself. It may be matching bracelets or if you have ample time, a beautiful painting that could describe their love for each other. Whatever it is, if you will just put your heart into it, it will certainly come out wonderful and well-appreciated.

5. Pets are also wonderful ideas. You can get them a nice well-trained dog or an exotic fish. You may also include a little bit of food or toys that the pet could play with. But before everything else, make sure that the couple still has time and space around the house for an added responsibility of raising a pet.

6. If they are newly-weds, you can always give them kitchen utensils. That way, you would seem like you are giving your full-support for the couple who are out on their own. You don't have to give them a microwave oven; spatulas or a set of spoons and forks can do the work.
