Buying a gift for the person who is most important to us is obviously something we want to do, but it can be so difficult! You want to gift them with something that will express your love for them, but sometimes narrowing in on the best way to do that is hard. You know them best, though, so I find the best gifts for spouses are usually those that involve you knowing something really special about them and being inspired by that. Think back to things your spouse has mentioned this year as really important to them, or maybe something they’ve pointed out at someone else’s house. If you need more inspiration, here are all of my ideas!
