Once you and another person have established that you are an item, your friends can breathe a sight of relief, having whittled down their gift lists by one. Because you're a BOGO deal now, you see? But it's not that bad when couples' gifts like the 15 ahead are on the table, plus everybody knows the worst deal of all is still when your birthday falls on or near any holiday.
Ponder over which one of you is the AM and the PM, and proceed to bask in the four elements: ocean, garden, woods, and...bourbon.
Williams Sonoma, $15
Wine glasses for two (or four). This multi-color pack does the trick for non-boring dinner parties.

Sonic Editions, $500
Bowie—in 1974, by Terry O'Neill—watches over your home.
Le Labo, $80
A discovery kit for layering, mixing up your signature scent as a duo, and making sure neither of you smells purely of Santal 33.
IfOnly, price varies
If you're of the experiences > things mindset, give them a private helicopter tour or a glass-blowing class—pricing is per person, so maybe they won't mind you tagging along.

Where to eat in Paris, where to stay in London, and all the best (romantic) things to see and do in various cities in between.

Julia B. Couture Linens, $325
Should these couple friends of yours be more of the "duo that has have everything" caliber, how about some Broadway-referencing cocktail napkins? Chic.
Cire Trudon, $275
Similarly chic is this warmer that heats scented wax molded into cameos. Would consider growing up just to own this.
Yes, they are labeled "Mr." and "Mrs.," but a Sharpie could fix that in a jiffy.

These shiny apparatuses make coffee, a cost-saving measure in the long run. Plus they're pretty.
