8 Surprise Gift Ideas To Wow Your Significant Other

Sep 20, 2019 10:15 AM EDT | By Ernest Hamilton

At some point in a relationship, there's likely to come a time where you want to surprise your significant other with a gift. When you've been with one another for a significant period of time, however, thinking of new ideas becomes a lot harder. 

There's only so long you can continue buying your significant other things that tie in with their favorite TV show or clothing brand before they come to expect them, after all. With that being said, the gift-giving doesn't have to stop. With our exhaustive list of creative gift ideas for your significant others, you'll be back to surprising them in no time. 

Protein Coffee 

Sometimes, busy new parents need something to give them that 'kick' that keeps them going through the long nights. If this sounds like your significant other, investing in protein coffee is the perfect surprise gift they could receive. 

Having tried Complete Nutrition myself, I couldn't recommend this brand more to other dad's in a similar position to my own. 

My all-time favorite flavor is their Iced Coffee one, but their other two options of Mocha Latte and Caramel Frappe are good, too. 

A Personalized Story Of Your Relationship 

What better way to surprise your significant other than to give them a book that contains all the poignant parts of your relationship in one place?

This could be a bonding activity where you look over the best parts of your relationship, or a nice present to show how much you appreciate them.

One of the best companies to offer this is Love Book, who provide you with the option to create characters that look just like you. 

They also provide you with everything you need to personalize every aspect of the book, from the memories it includes to the design of the front cover.

A Custom Star Map 

In every relationship, there are going to be specific dates that mean so much to you both that you want to highlight them forever. The custom star maps offered by Twinkle In Time provide you with the perfect opportunity to do just that. 

Whether it's the day you got married, first started dating or another anniversary you want to remember, this map will show you exactly how the stars were aligned on said day. There's also the option to add your own personalized message in your surprise gift to your personalized other, ensuring that this gift is well and truly one-of-a-kind. 

Couples Art Kit 

If you want to surprise your significant other by introducing a new hobby into your relationship or simply want a date night with a difference, this couple's art kit could be perfect. 

With this kit from Uncommon Goods, you will be provided with a black or white cotton canvas and a combination of colored paints to choose from.

This is everything you will need to create an art installation in your home that is derived directly from the love you and your significant other share. 

If you're worried about the cleaning up, this company has that covered, too, providing you with plastic sheeting, disposable slippers, and a body scrubber to help you make as little mess as possible. 

A Soundbar 

If your significant other is more practical, why not surprise him with something you can both benefit from, like a soundbar? 

Being practical doesn't have to be boring, though; simply include a few snacks with this gift and hint for an evening of 'Netflix & Chill' for the added romance element.

One of the best options on the market at the moment that won't break your bank is this Sonos Soundbar Beam

With many positive benefits, including Amazon Alexa voice control and the ability to automatically pair it with your remote, you'll get your money's worth of this device in no time! 

A Reusable Water Bottle 

If your significant other is a busy dad who dreams of drinking his coffee or tea while it's still hot, surprising him with a reusable water bottle could be the perfect gift.

This Kool8 reusable water bottle was recently named one of the best water bottles around and will keep his drink hot for up to 12 hours. 

Additionally, if your significant other is a keen hiker or works in an office during the day, this bottle will keep cold drinks cool for up to 24 hours.

Premium Wine Tasting For Two

If you're looking for a surprise gift for your significant other that will effortlessly flow into a romantic date, then you need to pull out all the stops.

This Premium Wine Tasting For Two kit could be the perfect way of doing so, providing you both with the excuse you need to settle down in front of a movie and put your wine-related knowledge to the test. 

Delivered right to your doorstep, this kit can be ordered last minute and offers the perfect pick me up to a significant other who may be experiencing high stress, or one who simply needs a break.

The kit includes a red and white wine for you to try, with a corkscrew and two stemless drinking glasses, which is everything you'll need to treat yourself to a cozy night in.

At Home Celiac Disease Test 

Many people will ignore digestive symptoms like bloating and cramping in the belief that it will go away. The reality is, however, that these symptoms often extend years down the line, and can lead to significant daily discomfort. 

If this sounds like your significant other, gifting them an at home celiac disease test to rule in or out a serious digestive condition could be just what they need.

While this isn't the most romantic gift on our list, when you consider that most celiac disease patients are diagnosed as young adults, it's one that your significant other may thank you for. 


If your significant other is a sports fanatic, health conscious, or is simply stressed from work, CBD oil from Kyro can be an unorthodox yet incredibly thoughtful present.

For those who want to live a healthy life, enough exercise, good sleep habits, and mental calm are of paramount importance. Yet in today's work environment where there is a need to get everything done quickly, achieving a balance of these three seems like a fantasy.

Thankfully CBD oil can help your partner and you remain calm through stressful situations, be inflammation-free after workouts, and get some much needed shut-eye.


As you can see, there are a lot of different options out there when it comes to surprising your significant other with a gift.

Whether you take the personalized route of a custom star map or stick to something more practical like a soundbar, you're almost guaranteed to spice up the gift-giving process between the two of you.
